    Amazing staff & beautiful hotel

    Overall this is a really great hotel. The interior & style is on point, rooms are great with huge rain showers and excellent design throughout. The biggest praise must be to the staff. They are all so friendly and helpful and by day 2, the breakfast manager knew my name and room, which was so impressive. The negatives are small but worth a little mention as it is an expensive hotel. The rooftop infinity pool & area is not open yet, which meant the poolside was a little crowded. Around the pool are Bali beds, but you have to pay a very high price to use them, which I don’t think is acceptable. Incidentally in my 5 days I didn’t see them used. The breakfast is good, and so is the other food I tried. However as a vegetarian, there is no non-meat option from the room service and seeing as the dinner buffet was 60euros, I’m glad I didn’t pay for this as the menus were majority meat. However the hotel is right on the beach and having breakfast on the terrace was a wonderful way to start the day. The area is away from the main tourist area but there are plenty of restaurants around and a small supermarket opposite. The restaurants do get booked up so worth bearing this in mind. By far the best staff I’ve ever met and this is by far a reason to book!

    Great location & views; on beach & next to dunes; nice promenade on beach. Bus stop 5 mt walk (although we had rental car). Clean & comfortable. Great, plentiful buffet breakfast. Ate buffet dinner one night; lots of options, but only one fish choice, & they charged for water. Pleasant & helpful staff. Lots of shopping, restaurants, groceries nearby. It’s a shame they charge (2 euro/day) for in room internet (free in lobby areas); & charge to use in room safe!

    Disappointing return

    I stayed at IFA Faro 3 years ago and thought it was great so was looking forward to staying again. However, it has gone down in standard in that time. I paid extra for a superior room which I assumed would directly overlook the sea. It didn’t; I had a sidelong glance over the sea and a building site. Regarding the building site, I appreciate that IFA has no control over this work but other hotels post warnings about current work; they did not. Being woken at 8am on my holiday by drills and other large machinery wasn’t great. Although the breakfast was still splendid, the evening meal was not. There seemed to be a distinct re-use of the sad leftovers from breakfast into a tired array of bizarre “salads”. Hot food was also available and was ok but I suggest to the management that it would benefit from focussing on quality in a few dishes rather than many average to poor dishes. Service was also variable. Some staff were perfectly pleasant. However, a couple were surly to say the least. One barman in particular seemed to take a dislike to my friend and I referring to him at one point as “that boy” (we’re both 40). We both felt that our attempts to speak Spanish were rather sneered at despite the staff being perfectly happy to speak English to their multitude of German guests. Why did it seem that we were also the only ones checked at every meal for our room cards as though proving we were suitable for the hotel? In summary, I won’t be returning to IFA faro.

    Idyllic in every way, fabulous location.

    It was a breath of fresh air to stay at the IFA Faro Hotel, we were made welcome from the time we entered the reception area with our luggage until the day we departed for home. Attention to detail was incredible and the service in all areas was exceptional. The breakfast was superb, an incredible selection and the waiters and waitresses so friendly and attentive, as was all the reception staff, concierge and chambermaids. I am so looking forward to my next visit and would love to bring other family members along to also enjoy the wonderful IFA Faro hospitality. We requested an upgrade on our room before we arrived and on arrival were given room 1507 on the 5th floor, with fabulous views over the sea and the most glorious sunsets every evening. Room was very spacious, well furnished with superbly comfortable double bed, spacious balcony with two sun loungers, small table and two chairs. The lovely swimming pool along with a large jacuzzi, so well situated, just a few steps away from the beach. We were on bed an breakfast basis, as we we were advised of the wealth of lovely restaurants in the Lopesan Boulevard just a short walk beyond the lighthouse. Saying this we could see that the guests that were on half or full board said that the lunch, dinner and pool bar areas all provided delicious food with varied menus, at all times. A great hotel, food, location, service, facilities all of the highest standard. Highly recommended.
