Maspalomas is one of my favorite beaches in the world, for sure because I know it from my childhood. Faro is the best place to be, yes it is an old building and you can see it, but location is wonderful. You will find one of the best veteran people working at this hotel, customer oriented and extremely friendly. Choose...

This is an excellent hotel for a four star. It is literally next to the sea/beach. Rooms are very good and staff are very helpful. If you enjoy being in close proximity to the beach and need a good quality hotel this is the one for you.

Upon our arrival, check-in was quick and staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't chose to up-grade to a sea view therefore our room didn't have a great view. However this did not bother us. The most important thing was that the room was spotlessly clean and serviced every day. The shower and bathroom were amazing. The room was carpeted...

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
