“A pretty lighthouse close to sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

This was a nice lighthouse close to the ocean. Good for sunset walks at waterfront. Really enjoyed the sea breeze and shops nearby.

“The lighthouse is very nicely restort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

It's a landmark along the see. Next to are lots of shopping arcades and restaurants. Restaurants are much better, even a bit more price as all the cheap kind of fast food restaurants.
Quality you pay for even in Spain.
Shops are tax free and less expensive as at the Airport.

“Nice place but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Walked around El Faro and had a lovely meal at one of their restaurants however there are lots of touts which ruined the place for me. Don't waste your time with any of them! They promise you free stuff for a bit of your time and by a bit they mean half a day which they don't tell you. Also there was a very dirty and drunk man who was trying to block the way, shouted and grabbed his bits in front of me which as a woman found disturbing. If it wasn't for people like that it would be a lovely place.

“good shopping!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Great shopping centre lots of designer shops also, great restaurants and bars. Very clean, lovely walk along promanade - only downside would be the amount of "reps" trying to sell trips or tours - very annoying to be bothered so much!
