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.

From the moment we arrived, there was a handshake from the porter, the Reception staff were lovely and we settled into our spacious clean room. In the morning the view was spectacular. The breakfasts and evening meals were superb; we were spoilt for choice. The quality and

This is in a good location. A pleasant promenade overlooking the sea extends to the west with a few cafés and shops. To the east is a sandy beach leading to the dunes (naturist if you wish). Overcast weather did not encourage sun bed use for long and after a few days the

I have reviewed this hotel a few times now and praised it to high heaven each time. This time was no different. Amazing location, friendly staff, only metres away from being in the swish resort of Melonares. It could do with a lick of paint here and there, the showers are only

If you like a bit of point break surfing (as I do) the surf here is world class first thing in the morning, like glass.
This is genuinely the view from our first floor room. Spectacular. The structure you can partially see on the very far right of the first photo is an equally spectacular lighthouse.
