My wife and I have just spent a week in this hotel ,it is rated as a 4 star and it really lives up to its billing ,from the moment we arrived the staff were more than helpful .we got there after the restaurant had closed for the evening meal but they had prepared a very nice meat and seafood salad with drinks all served with smiling faces .Our cases were taken to our room ,we did not have a sea view but still more than suprised at the size and standard of our accommodation ,tastefully furnished and fully carpeted throughout .A mini bar was in the room but not with astronomical prices as was the same with the safe ,your keycards also acted as a hotel credit card so no money changed hands when purchasing drinks or extra meals in the hotel .The food was of a high standard with a good variety and plenty of it ,the dining room was a very nice place to be in also you could eat outside if you prefered ,all the public areas had plenty of seating and very spacious.The area is bulit up but its all done in a very sympathetic way with an excellent selection of high end shops a short walk across the road ,its also a great place for a stroll after diner .The beach is accessed through the pool area via a glass door which is locked at night ,you pick your poolside sunbeds at the start of your holiday and these are yours for the length of your stay wether you use them or not ,the pool area is also well laid out and screened from the path by glass panels .
All the staff we had reason to speak to were brilliant and very helpful ,from the maid who cleaned your room to the manager .
This hotel has standards which we have not found in some 5 star hotels ,I cannot recommend it highly enough ,we shall certainly be going back ,we are mature travellers and have stayed in over 50 hotels worldwide and this one is in the top 3 .
- 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
