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.
