Reviewed 3 March 2014

We have stayed in this hotel many times, and keep coming back because it is very good. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because there are no tea making facilities in the room, no room service and no option in the evenings to get a bar snack to eat in or take to the room, the only option being a full evening restaurant menu, which we don't always want. However, this is good value at a discounted €20 per person against €24 for non residents. This is the less good bit.
The good and excellent bits:
The breakfast is really lovely with loads of choice and available until 10.30 am.
There are plenty of cushioned sunbeds both by the pool and down by the beach.
The pool is heated, which is not always the case in the Canaries!

The hotel seems to have had a facelift since we were here two years ago and looks very smart this year.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The food in the evening restaurant is buffet, but very good and good value for the money with chefs available to cook fish, steaks etc in addition to the usual buffet food.
All the rooms face seawards which means that most have a beautiful view of Palm trees, pool and beach.
Rooms have a decent sized fridge to keep your drinks and other stuff in, which is not full of mini bar bottles as is the usual problem. The bathrooms are spacious, and have a hair dryer and a bath (with a plug!) in addition to a good shower.
Beds are on the hard side but bedding is good and sheets changed twice a week.
All rooms we have stayed in have been nice, the added bonus being that as they are carpeted, you don't get the clatter above from people walking about at 2 in the morning.

We enjoyed a 7 night winter holiday in this wonderful hotel. Travelling with Thomas Cook from Stansted UK.
Our top floor room had a good sea view through the trees and onto the small Hotel beach, the room was a good size, clean and well maintained.
The restaurant was light and clean and had a delightful view over the terraced gardens, on warm nights you were able to dine outside at no extra cost, otherwise you are free to choose your table.
Food was faultless with lots of variety. Only down side is the entertainment which is quite poor.
Overall a good holiday and a Hotel that we would return to in the future, what a pity that most tour operators do not now fly from Stansted.

My husband, myself and our two children (aged 15 & 10) stayed at the Fariones Hotel garden bungalows for 1 week in February and it was outstanding. Our bungalow was located in the gardens of the hotels with the private beach outside our door and the bungalow itself was spacious, clean and well maintained. There was some building work going on in the bungalow next door which was a bit noisy from 8.30am in the mornings but to compensate us the hotel offered us buffet breakfast each morning free of charge. They did also offer to move us but our bungalow had such a nice aspect that we didn't want to move. The AMAZING breakfast buffet more than made up for the early mornings! The staff were all so obliging and friendly and the cleaning staff were great. They cleaned and made beds every day as well as providing clean towels every day which on a beach holiday is great. The grounds of the hotel are just fabulous and you sit outside listening to the ocean rolling in along the volcanic rock coast. The place is so quiet and has everything you could possibly need including a lovely pool area, a bar and restaurant. On our last day we weren't leaving until 5pm and while checkout is normally at 12 pm they allowed us to extend it until 3pm allowing us an extra day on the beach before having a shower and packing up for the airport transfer. I can't recommend this hotel/bungalows highly enough. Well done to the Fariones for yet another wonderful destination in Lanzarote. We stayed at the Fariones Playa some years ago and it was also outstanding. Thanks for a great and relaxing holiday.

Grounds and beach were nice. Breakfast was excellent with something for everyone: goat milk yoghurt, fresh fruit, grains and seeds, eggs cooked to order, pancakes. As well as full English and continental.

The week that we went the average age of guests was about 70, which meant it was quiet.

This hotel had a very laid back attitude to the way in which the guests were made welcome. Very few restrictions on whether you had breakfast inside or out. Rooms were spotlessly clean with fresh towels every day if you wished and the free gratis toiletries replenished as they were used. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Central for shops and restaurants. Thoroughly enjoyable time.

You cant beat this hotel for its location, for its outdoor areas, gardens, pools, lounging areas and private beach - absolutely wonderful. I have always found the staff to be polite and efficient so no complaints there either but the rooms - Oh my goodness - 4 star?!!! Well, by whose rating and by what criteria - they are not even 2 star, they are "grim". A total revamp is required and the dark wood and rattan doors and fitted furniture is for the scrap heap - they are years past their sell-by date - likewise the seating in the indoor lounge areas - get rid guys or you are going to lose more business!!! The improvements to the seating and layout on the terrace since last year is wonderful, the service is great, the breakfasts (with the exception of the bacon, does anyone actually eat it?) are great, lots of variety and both indoor and outdoor dining seating areas. The wifi is practically non existent, kept disconnecting after a few moments, two English channels on the TV being Sky News and BBC World News though lots of Spanish and German channels, unfortunately I speak neither language to my chagrin, but a fortnight of the latest world news has me totally edified!!! Another whinge - having to pay €20 per week to hire the room safe - in a 4 star hotel???!!!!! And the request for €30 for a late check out time of 3 hours, in a hotel that was a long way from fully occupied, and for a room that was due to have its balcony painted that day and so was not going to be re-rented - a little wheedling and I didn't part with my €30 but, it niggled and was unacceptable given the actual circumstances and indeed, would have been mighty shortsighted as my €1500 in 2015 would definitely not have been going to the Fariones Hotel, or indeed, anywhere in the group - but, they redeemed themselves by not insisting, so, well, I shall consider, if the rooms have been revamped in the meantime. No AirCon or heating, no tea making facilities, no fridge, no English channels, no DVD player, no proper WiFi so, its important to bring plenty of reading matter and keep the fingers crossed that the weather is kind enough to allow you leave the room for the day. I found the maid service on the 7th floor excellent and a small problem with the shower was dealt with immediately by mantainence, so well done there - but, don't get hungry between 15.30 and dinnertime because there is no food, not even a sandwich available from the bar - I do think that perhaps the higher management should be treated to a few nights in an "actual" 4 star establishment I think someone at the top has got very comfortable in trading on "return business" and "location, location, location", and what about a loyalty system for returning patrons - all the best US hotel chains offer them, perhaps a little thinking outside the box is required somewhere within a managerial establishment that has apparently become a little complacent.
