We stayed one night at a junior suite at 5th floor. The space was well disposed, the bathroom and shower was excellent. A wellcome plate with strawberries dipped in chocolate was waiting at us at arrival. Turndown service with chocolate was also provided. The bed was very comfortable providing 9 hours sleep! The breakfast buffet was the best I have...

We liked the location of this hotel and that it offered non-inclusive half board which gives us better choice of drinks, meals and tours. In fact the food was superb, lots of choice, daily themes, inventive cocktails and an extensive choice of red, white and roses with a good range of prices.

Very quiet and friendly week experience. No significative problem. For people who look for rest without crying children and noisy late dancing activities it is the perfect choice. At proximity but outside the hotel we recommend Bogeda restaurant. Good breakfast, good location, friendly staff, good beds and rooms.

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.

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.

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
