Character error 

The instructions tell Ofelia to turn the hourglass over when the door opens, but she waits until she has entered the Pale Man's domain.

Continuity 

When Ofelia enters the lair of the Pale Man, she sets the hour glass down on the wall (where she entered). From when she puts it down to when it is next in shot, quite a lot of sand has fallen, and this is even before she's walked into the banquet chamber. There is no way that the sand would have lasted past when she was eating the grapes, let alone to when it supposedly did run out.
After the car stops for Carmen at the start of the film, Carmen gets back into the car first followed by Ofelia who is sitting on the right hand side as they drive off. When the car arrives at the mill Carmen gets out of the car from the right hand side followed by Ofelia.

Revealing mistakes 

When Ofelia goes down the stairs in the labyrinth and is talking to the Faun, his shadow still shows Doug Jones' legs while they are in the stilts. The special effects crew took out his physical legs, but the shadow still exists.
When Ofelia bites her finger under her mother's bed, you can see the tube she is squeezing the blood out of.
In the scene where Ofelia picks up her little brother to take him with her, the baby is crying and making noise but when she turns around you can see the baby is a doll and is not animated in any way.

Spoilers
