My husband and I stayed at the hotel in March. The reviews I had read previously have basically summed up the hotel very well. The hotel reception area and staff on arrival were all very welcoming and friendly. During our stay the staff always went out their way to make us feel special. We stayed b&b which was lovely, with...

A large upmarket entrance and reception greets you, with staff throughout the property, being friendly and vey efficient. There are Terrace and Pool bars serving all beverages at selected times. Food is also available...

We really enjoyed our holiday at IFA Faro hotel, Maspalomas, Gran Canaria. The hotel is just at the back of the beach with direct entry through the hotel garden gates. Our room was a superior room facing the sea and pool and had a nice balcony with lounger and chairs. The staff are friendly and helpful and understand English quite...

This hotel keeps things simple. The staff are pleasant without being fawning. The food does not strain to achieve gourmet standards but is perfectly acceptable. The pool and the gym are fine for the number of guests. The location is in its way idyllic. The guests are EEC rather than BREXIT. The entertainment is not the finest but then you...

Overall we enjoyed our stay at IFA Faro and would most likely return in the future. On the plus side our room was good and kept clean by Phepa. Variety of food was excellent no complaints there. If I had to be critical the evenings entertainment was pretty dire. As was events during the day. Having said that location excellent...

I really recommend this place. It's new and beautiful. The food is good and they offer a huge variety. The rooms are quite big and clean. The hotel is located next to the sea and a very nice promenade, where we sometimes had a drink. I would definitely go there again.

A very comfortable hotel with good buffet breakfast and dinner. Your lounger by the pool was labelled for you for the length of your stay so you didn't have to reserve it for the day at the crack of dawn. Staff very helpful. Plenty of shops (some expensive!) and restaurants nearby. To be recommended.

This was our second visit here (and we don't usually like returning to the same place). It's a great hotel. Clean, comfortable, lovely breakfasts.

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

“a sea view room on 2nd-4th floor is very good.”
