Ifa Faro Hotel was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. We arrived late due to the wait at the airport for the coach transfer so missed our evening meal. However we were offered a cold meat and cheese selection and drinks and as we were tired this was enough as we just wanted to sleep.
We were told by the desk staff that we had been upgrated to a Junior suite on the 5th floor right in the centre of the row with the most wonderful sea view you could ever wish for. It was so spacious and very very nice.
At breakfast the choice was vast, including champagne and catered for all tastes.Evening meals were also great with so much to choose from.
On our first morning we met the pool man who found us two sun beds and parasol and booked them to us for our weeks stay which is a brilliant idea. We used the pool area on most days at some time in the day. Another great plus to this hotel is that you can just walk out of the hotels glass door onto the beach, go for a dip in the sea and then walk back, use the shower and back on your sun bed to dry out.
The hotel staff were all very friendly and greeted you with smiles. We frequented the bar on most evenings for a cocktail and to watch the entertainment. Most other guests preferred to sit on the outside terrace but we sat inside to watch the singing duos who sang a range of songs in german, english and spanish to cater for all guests. The magician, and acrobats were brilliant and the fashion shows were interesting although the prices were way out of our purse strings.
As a bonus the lighthouse which is right next to the hotel was used to illuminate a 3d light show while we were there and entertainment provided by the Canarian Government band and to end the show, a firework display. Couldnt believe we had all this on our door step.
I would strongly recommend staying at the IFA Faro Hotel if you want an Adults only get away from it all holiday. Maspalomas is low key with lots of very nice restaurants though some are very expensive but for a week, its nice to treat yourselves.
- 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
