A nice hotel , but the rooms are very tired

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Staff were friendly and helpful
Cons: Major capital expenditure on the rooms which looked very dated
Location: Easy access from airport, but little of interest closeby except the golf courses.
A well located hotel within a golf complex, and close to the beach, public facilities had been updated, but rooms where in need of complete refurbishment. I was listed as a 5 star hotel, but mu view would be 3 star plus

Excellent location

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: Location close to beach with fantastic views.
Cons: Rooms a little dated, too few and inconveniently placed electrical outlets for today's modern requirements.
Location: Golf courses and beach close by with favourable concessions. Restaurants available in the resort and many others close by (a taxi ride away)
6 nights vacation stay in a junior suite. Excellent location. Public areas recently upgraded but rooms a little dated and could do with some attention. Staff service in restaurant good but elsewhere a little indifferent. Our bathroom sink failed to drain properly, despite efforts by maintenance to resolve the issue, also the bidet had a rather unpleasant brown stain which appeared every morning (probably the result of old plumbing)

Outstanding hotel

This was my third time at Dona Filippe and it was just as incredible as my other two stays. I would highly recommend staying here and Vale do Lobo is beautiful

Hotel Stay

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: ROOMS
Location: Fab golf courses and restaurants, not a lot to do in the evenings as only 1 bar which is a good one. Great place for a long weekend.
The staff were excellent, facilities too. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the rooms, very old and outdated.

Doña filipo

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: Staff, location, pool
Cons: Television in room could have a few English channels,decor of the rooms,coffee making facilities in the room.
Location: Great location on the beach, very close to the bars and restaurants, children's club opposite.
This is a fantastic location just on the beach front, this hotel also has its own privet sun beds free of charge on the beach. The staff here were excellant and very friendly all spoke English. The food here was also good nothing to complain about but wouldn't say it was fantastic. The only let down for this hotel is the out dated rooms.the decor very old fashion and the beds were slightly uncomfortable. The pool area was lovely and kept clean and tidy. We would return and recommend.

Lovely hotel in a great location

Posted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: The Hotel is being upgraded and the finished areas are beautiful. It was a very relaxing hotel to stay in.
Cons: Reception was sometimes understaffed and some of them did not seem to have much local knowledge, almost unhelpful.
Location: Fabulous location near a lovely beach and a number of restaurants nearby as well as the hotel restaurants so lots of choice. Golfer's paradise.
Lovely Hotel in a great location so close to the sea and other nearby facilities. It was such a shame that they were doing lots of building work so it was quite noisy during the day time if you were in the hotel but not so bad if you were by the pool. My room was fabulous, a junior suite, but double rooms were not so good particularly if you were a family needing an extra bed.

Hotel in good location

Posted Apr 24, 2014
Cons: front desk staff could smile and as we have been going for the last four years it would be nice if they remembered our room preference on arrival
Location: near the beach and some nice restaurants
We like this hotel because of its location to the beach and restaurants. It is currently under going a renovation but we were not disturbed at all.
