After a long scarey taxi drive of about an hour to the resort we finally arrived at the hotel.

We arrived at about 11.30pm, so too late for dinner, but was offered a cold alternative. As it was late we went strainght to the room and declined this offer.

We stayed in a Superior Room, which has a large balcony including two sun-beds. Rooms large and very clean. Nice veiw over the pool and towards the sea.

Hotel food was the most dissapointing part of the holiday. There was very little choice at Breakfast and Dinner. All the so called hot dishes were cold. Also you are allocated a dinner table for the whole week which we did not like.

The location is perfect. Right in the middle of the resort, and infront of the best part of the beach by the Lighthouse. Beach is amazing, hugh, white sand, goes on for miles. Could always find a sun-bed or quiet area. Be careful in the sea as two days in a row we saw peolpe having to be rescued by the Life Guards as they had been dragged out by the currents.

Hotel entertainment wasn't all that. Only stayed in one night to watch a show and it was very poor.

Best bar we found right outside the hotel was the Boot & Ball. Sky Sports and great friendly service. Otherwise they are mainly German bars.

Great Resort, but would not revisit this hotel. Food lets it down.

On arrival after a 3.5 hour flight and a 1 hour taxi ride the initial welcome by the reception staff was very cold and arrogant. After 20 mins sitting in the reception area, a reception member informed us that we would be receiving complementary champagne which we are still waiting for???

I have travelled throughout the world and stayed in some very impressive hotels, this was not one of them.

The restaurant was well below par, had it been a British hotel it would struggle to achieve 3 stars due to the poor standard of food on offer. The meals rotated around a German/Spanish theme, which were all defrosted and not fresh.

*Please don't make the same mistake we did and ignore the bad reports on this hotel*

It staffed by predominately Germans which have little time for their British counterparts.

I lived in Germany for over 8 years and have no problem with Germans ....however they must have a problem with us
On departure they didn't even make the effort to say goodbye, they just looked away to save the effort, it summed up the 7 days A real shame, we will definitely not be returning to this resort, we should have been informed it was a German hotel, staffed by German Reps & Staff who are very anti British.

Just got back from 11 nights at the hotel Faro Jandia and we are already considering booking it up again for next year. We were a bit worried before we went as we there are very few reviews on it but we were not disapppointed. The hotel is lovely. The rooms are amazing. Really big, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. You are given champagne as you check in and wine and fruit in your room on arrival.

The best thing about the hotel is the Wellness Centre downstairs which has a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room as well as a heated spa/pool with all sorts of water massage features. The hotel provides bath robes for you to use here which makes it all really relaxing.

The food was very good. There was a huge amount of choice for both breakfast and dinner. Sometimes you were given champagne for breakfast and aperitifs before dinner. Again, nice little touches that made it seem really special. Meats and fish were cooked in front of you at the back of the restaurant and there was always a wide variety of soups, vegatebles, salads and desserts. My only criticism would be that there are hardly any tables for two which meant that we had to sit with a different couple almost every night. Not very romantic!

The resort itself was quite quiet but perfect for a relaxing holiday. The hotel is on the main strip of shops/bars/restaurants but when you are inside you wouldn't know it as it is so peaceful and calm. We arrived the same time as the locusts and were horrified to go to the beach and see it covered in huge red bugs! Luckily by the next day they were all dead and by the day after that, impressively, all of them had been cleared up. The hotel and resort is about 95 percent German and hardly any of the staff seem to speak any English. Also, it is a nudist beach and be warned - there are lots of them!

The entertainment in the hotel was quite good. Mainly acrobatics and flamenco shows but they were all very professional. We had a Bee Gees tribute one night which were hilarious because they were Spanish and really obviously didn't know the words to the songs so they kind of mumbled and hummed their way through most of them which was great entertainment in itself!

The weather was lovely. We did have a bit of rain but it tended to only last a few minutes in the morning and then there was bright sunshine for the rest of the day. We had heard about how windy the island can be but it wasn't that bad at all. In fact in the heat the cooling breeze was very welcome. Sometimes it was too strong to sit on the beach though but inside the hotel you were protected from it.

All the staff are so friendly and helpful. One day our bath robes hadn't been replaced so we went down to reception to tell the and by the time we had walked back up the stairs to our room we just saw the maid leaving it and they had been put on the bed. We were so impressed as they must have literally ran there to beat us to it!

We would definately recommend this hotel if you want a really relaxing break. Jandia is a beautiful place and perfect as a winter getaway. We will definately be going back.

Hotel very clean - none of our favorite cockroaches to be found. Rooms very nice - great view pool and sea and lighthouse. The breakfast was fab. evening meals - on the whole something for everyone - meat and fish cooked while you waited. The hotel is located on the main strip - although you wouldn't know it once inside. Hotel staff were great - don't know the meaning of a single shot - you get a least a treble for your money - surprised I can remember -although they do presume you are German when they first meet you. Excellent entertainment - they work on a 3 week rota so you don't get a repeat the second week.
