It was a fantastic stay in IFA Faro. We had a room with a view over the ocean and the dunes on the 5th floor and the bed was also very good. Employees and staff were very friendly and the food is delicious! We are sure to come back. Diana and Willy from Belgium

All the positive items mentioned in other reviews were present in my stay. Loved the sun bed reservation system. Please other hotels take note! Breakfast was very good. Evening meal mediocre. As they were only charging £70 per person per week I think they need to increase it to £100 and improve quality. Also as someone mentioned, often the food...

We spent one week in IFA Faro at beginning of November 2016. It is really nice and clean hotel. It is situated next to the shoreside. The rooms are big enough for two persons. One of the best features is to reserve sunbed next to pool for as long as you are staying at the hotel. There is no need...

IFA Faro is in the centre of Meloneras, it has I think 190 rooms altho does not sit in huge grounds. We liked it very much because we thought it was a relaxed hotel and not too frenetic or overpopulated. The staff are brilliant, the food is good an nothing seemed to be skimped on.

The IFA Faro overlooks the sea, sand dunes and is an excellent location in the resort of Maspalomas. The hotel is small compared to other hotels in the area - 170 bedrooms.

We had a sea view room - well worth it. The room itself was large and well furnished, if a little quirky, with the separate WC and shower room having frosted glass doors that left little to the imagination! The view and the accompanying noise of the waves breaking on the shore was delightful. The restaurant buffets were splendid with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The IFA Faro Hotel is ideally situated close to the sea, a very short distance from the very south beach of Maspalomas and its lighthouse, on the island of Gran Canaria. Thanks to its perfect location you can enjoy fantastic sea and beach views, with their 6 km of golden sand dunes which extend to Playa del Ingles. The hotel, with a 4 star category and elegant architecture underwent a complete interior, solarium and swimming pool reform in 2005 and 2006. These reforms give a mixture of an up to date image and provide a notably brighter atmosphere to the hotel. ... more   less
