Just back from Maspalomas and a lovely stay at the Ifa Faro. We paid for a sea view room and it was great- beautiful views of the sea and the palm trees from our good-sized balcony. The sun lounger reservation system is great- I don't know why all hotels don't do it! If you don't like your chairs, they seemed happy to move people, but we liked the spot we were given. We really enjoyed all of the modern restaurants on our doorstep- especially SushiMex for dinners and Pinguino Soul for ice creams. The day we checked out we were allowed to still use our sun loungers and then had access to a bedroom on the ground floor for showering and changing before heading to the airport- a great service for guests! We also loved watching the aqua gym sessions after lunch- the girl who leads them is so enthusiastic!
The only small improvement I would suggest is about the tv- I know I didn't go on holiday to watch telly, but when we're in the room getting ready for dinner or after an evening in the bar, it is nice to have something on in the background. The only English language channels are news channels, while there was much more variety for Spanish and German speaking guests. At least 1 non-news channel in English might be nice.
Would 100% recommend this hotel to a friend.
- 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
