Although we did not have one of the refurbished rooms, it was spacious and clean. Our 'double' bed was two 90cm singles, pushed together, but unfortunately they did tend to move apart. Nonetheless, the mattresses were very comfortable and made for an exellent night's rest. If you want tea and/or coffee in the room you will definitely have to ask,...

Much of this hotel rates 'excellent', with great public spaces, the really good Primavera restaurant and a high level of service, especially the housekeeping. The hotel's website would have you believe that all the rooms are delightful and many with super views, but this is an exaggeration as this should be reserved for the refurbished 'premium' rooms overlooking the golf...

This Hotel is situated in the perfect place! It is ideal for family's and couples alike. Great for golfers. It is really close to the beach and has it's own private section, even closer to a number of very good restaurants and a children's play area. The hotel itself is not quite a 5 star but it is nice and...

We have used Dona Filipa as our base for the last two years. Two golfers and our wives. Stayed in Superior rooms. Fantastic beach a stones throw away, the Praca within walking distance and the choice of courses at Quinta and Vale de Lobo. Quieter than Vilamoura and frankly thats how we like it, but still plenty to do and...

Second visit to the hotel, first time was great but new bar and other refurbished areas have really added to the hotel's charm. Nice rooms and immaculately clean. Lovely staff, must give a special mention to the boys at the pool bar, never too far away when we wanted more drinks or food, they are so hard working and a...

We have been coming to the Donna filipa for 12 years. The main attraction is the deal they give you with inclusive golf at San Lorenzo , it's hard to beat the 7 night and 4 rounds deal they offer . This year I visited twice. First visit I stayed in a refurbished room this time in a traditional room....

It's amazing how varied the reviews for this hotel are. My wife and I have visited here with friends for several years and are always delighted with our stay. We visit in September when the kids are back at school so maybe that has some bearing. On arrival we received the usual very friendly and efficient welcome including a generous...
