Stayed here for 20 nights All Inclusive from 24th October until 13th November. Overall we had an excellent time. The hotel is spotlessly clean and we found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The variety of food was amazing. We have stayed at other hotels rated 4 star and their food was poor in comparison to IFA... More

Arriving at the hotel we had a fast check in and found the reception staff to be pleasant and informative. We were given a room on the first floor overlooking the pool although trees blocked any view we had. The room was spacious clean and had ample storage. You need to take your own hairdryer. We were fine with no... More

Firstly let me congratulate the hotel restaurant staff, who very respectfully reminded guests trying to enter the restaurant on an evening inappropriately dressed, that they could not enter unless they followed the hotel restaurant dress code, far too many hotels have signs displaying a dress code and then dare not enforce it, once again well done to the IFA Continental,...
