The beautiful four-star IFA Hotel Faro occupies a prime position on the beachfront at Maspalomas, making it ideal for couples looking for a relaxing holiday in this popular tourist destination. This lovely hotel is recommended for Adults-only holidays or couples with young children looking for some peaceful time out as it offers undisturbed relaxation with all the benefits of a sun, sea and sand holiday in Gran Canaria without the bustle.

Rooms are bright, spacious and well-decorated in traditional Mediterranean style with sumptuous dark-toned wood and pops of colours brought by soft furnishings for a decidedly sophisticated look. The hotel has a delightful and well-maintained outdoor pool which offers gorgeous views over the ocean as well as sun loungers and parasols to keep you cool and comfortable as you sunbathe. If you’re enjoying some time together as a couple and want to avoid tan lines, there’s a private nudist terrace onsite too.

As you would expect from a hotel of this calibre, there’s a wide selection of delicious food on offer to tempt your taste buds. Grab a quick and easy bite on the go at the Tamarona buffet-style restaurant, or head to the Piano-Bar Ganigo to take things at a more relaxed pace and enjoy scenic views of the sea. This is a fantastic choice of hotel for romantic vacations as a couple, whether you haven’t been together for long or are toasting a special anniversary, as the Café Panorama offers refreshing drinks and romantic views of the sun over the clear blue waves.

Whatever your interests and preferred way to relax, the hotel has something to cater to your tastes. With the poolside lounging taken care of at the hotel and the nearby beaches, active guests can enjoy everything from surfing to diving and water skiing at the beach or venture to the nearby golf course to work on their swing.

Maspalomas is a popular holiday resort on the southern tip of Gran Canaria, adjacent to this trendy Spanish island's largest and most hectic package-tour resort, Playa del Ingles. Maspalomas though, is the quieter and more upmarket option sporting the best four-mile (6km) stretch of golden, sandy beach on the island. Maspalomas is separated from Playa del Ingles by a spectacular undulating sea of sand dunes, a protected area that provides a habitat for some rare species of flora and fauna, and a favourite haunt for nudists.

Along the Maspalomas waterfront the promenade, stretching to Playa del Ingles, bristles with bars, shops, restaurants and entertainment venues between luxury hotels and villas. Maspalomas also boasts an exhilarating water park and nearby are numerous other attractions like amusement parks, nature parks, a golf course, an aquarium and theme parks. The resort has become a favourite holiday destination for the gay community, with a designated gay zone on the beach and in the sand dunes. The resort's week-long Gay Pride festivities each May have become world-renowned on the party calendar.

Resort Rating











Those who prefer to do more than just laze on the Maspalomas beach have plenty of options when it comes to watersports, either above or below the surface, from paragliding to scuba diving. Enjoy the thrilling Aquapark, the Holiday World amusement park, a theme park centred on the reconstruction of an ancient Canary village, an aquarium, zoo and many other diversions. It is also possible to take excursions to various sightseeing attractions, like museums and monuments or scenic spots inland, or a boat trip to view whales and dolphins. A must for a Maspalomas holiday is a camel ride through the famous dunes.


Maspalomas cuisine is best experienced at Pizzerria Piz Paz, Escalerita, El Palmeral or Velero Casa Antonio. Maspalomas has restaurants aplenty, most very reasonably priced, offering a variety of international cuisines. Many of the restaurants provide live entertainment in the evenings and double as bars. Visitors can enjoy live music or DJs while trying out a range of different foods from pizza and pasta to Chinese, seafood and Tex-Mex.


On holiday in Maspalomas, it is a good idea to make sure you join the locals in a traditional afternoon siesta in order to take advantage of the nightlife, which is lively but sophisticated. The holiday resort offers a plethora of entertaining bars with karaoke, jazz, salsa, and live bands to spice things up, or theme pubs with happy hours, like Irish or Californian surf spots. A good selection of bars can be found in the Maspalomas Plaza. There are a variety of clubs and discos, two popular dance spots being found in the Holiday World amusement park. Most Maspalomas nightclubs only get going after midnight, and offer free entry, although drinks can be expensive. Those out for a real time on the town, however, will prefer to head for neighbouring Playa del Ingles where the hottest spots are, including the well-known Joy and Cream clubs.


The main shopping centre in Maspalomas is the Faro 2 complex, full of designer stores and boutiques. Varadero Shopping Centre is another popular place to shop in Maspalomas. The surrounding area is crammed with shopping complexes of similar ilk, about a dozen in all, the biggest and best known being the Yumbo Centre in neighbouring Playa del Ingles.


The Maspalomas Dunes are a haven for naturists, so be prepared to see plenty of naked bodies on the sand. The beach, particularly the sunbed area, becomes extremely crowded during the height of the summer holiday season.
