Last weekend we went for a 4 night stay at Dona Filipa. It was necessary to recharge batteries since holidays are yet to come. What a lovely and quiet place in an Algarve full of people. The hotel is under renovation and we can see from the main entrance, bar and restaurant that the chosen decoration is quite nice! Well done. Staff is really helpful and very attentive. They have valet parking! So nice! Breakfast was very good by the pool and we could see the staff making an effort for things to go smoothly since the hotel was full! The beach area is great! So quiet! In my opinion the service by the beach could be improved. Not that is bellow algarve standard but if you have ever went to Asia you would understand. We had a late check out in one of the room that allowed to stay on the beach to late our on the departure day! Very good indeed! We play golf so we appreciate there is an arrangement between the hotel and San lourenzo and Pinheiros Altos golf course. We end up playing also in vale do lobo since us very near by and very nice and well maintained. I definitely want to come back!!!! Collapse

We arrived yesterday and the room nor hotel is 5 star. The room is so dated and old fashioned. The bathroom is awful with mis match tiles and very old dirty looking bath with white shower curtain. What 5 star has shower curtains that stick to you whilst you shower it's awful!! The whole room needs an upgrade and the balcony doors need replacing they are so cheap as is the furniture on the balcony. The bed is comfortable that is the only positive. We just don't want to be in the room it's depressing and we have paid £2121 for a week to stay here. Not been to such a low standard hotel for as long as I can remember. Really disappointed and have another 6 days left!!!! Our only holiday this year and what a waste of money! Collapse
Excellent Service and Location

This was our second visit for a child free weekend away and it was once again very good. We had early morning tee times at San Lorenzo and the service bus took us there and back. The rooms were clean, breakfast simple but ample and we loved the new pool and dining refurbishment - in spite of what other people have written. The one black mark was the beach man. It is simply unacceptable for our wives to be one of the first to arrive at the beach beds to find that 40 beds have been 'reserved' already. What made it even worse was that some of these beds were then not occupied until after 2pm. Sort it out please Collapse

DONA FILIPA HOTEL, Algarve, Portugal I would like to thank and praise the management of DONA FILIPA HOTEL in the Algarve in Portugal. I booked a room at DONA FILIPA Hotel for last weekend (Friday 28th July to Sunday 30th July) including a round of Golf. Unfortunately at the very last minute I had to cancel the above booking because I fell ill. Under the terms and conditions I had to pay them “two nights retention charge”. When I wrote to them that I cannot travel due to health reasons and hence would like to cancel the booking and requested them to waive the “retainer charges”, after some consultation they “agreed” to waive the cancellation charges. As a frequent traveller all over the world, I must tell you that I have stayed in expensive hotels and they are all “ruthless” in insisting on retainer charges. DONA FILIPA HOTEL Management treated me with utmost courtesy (when they did not have to) and I strongly recommend DONA FILIPA HOTEL despite not having stayed there. GAUTAM PHILIP (M. A.

Stayed a week along with another family - using interconnected rooms which worked very well - spacious rooms with decent balconies. All front office personnel were extremely helpful all week - from arrival to check out - very friendly and professional. Breakfast was ok / not in my view great - certainly I had expected more given the level of the hotel and prices charged. We only had one lunch (there are many places to eat close by) and it was not impressive - restaurant was pretty empty at lunch and dinner and I feel they don't try too hard. The staff in the lobby bar were always helpful - though seemed quiet there also at night. There was some particularly awful 'live Music' there one night with a bizarre Elvis type singer - just really cringe-worthy. For me overall a nice hotel - some good points but some others that need some attention Collapse
