Very nicely situated hotel with great decor and feel to it. The employees are very helpful and friendly however there is a slight inflexibility and officiousness of tone at times. Room was very clean with good facilities. Unusually there is no gym onsite which is a bit of a shame. Restaurant and bar were pleasant to visit with very good food. Collapse

We came on a golfing holiday with our pro which was supposed to be 5 star quality . The deal was 4 meals in the hotel , 2 of the group were strict vegetarians and their option was pretty dismal , they were brought a big plate with a couple of undercooked potatoes and some frozen veg from a packet , Also the deal was 4 dinners offered, the drinks were house wine and water , after 5 nights we were presented with an extra bill of 91 euros per meal for drinks . Doesn’t sound a lot in 10 people but considering 3 of the group are strictly tee total and the others don’t exceed 2 half glasses of wine it seemed very unfair , and mabye the biggest scam of all was the fact that none of the receptionists , waiters or management informed us of this surcharge and our waiters would walk around serving this cheap house wine to the whole Resturant as if it was part of our paid meal , no bottle was ever left on the table ! We shall never be coming back to this establishment , the hotel is over 40 years old , has no gym and definitely no where near what it’s advertised but what ticked us all off more was the sneaky way of profiting on their guests in these sneaky ways ! Unethical and dishonest , basically another little scam bringing in 400 euros extra not advertised Collapse

Four of us stayed at the Dona Philipa Hotel on a golfing break. The package was very reasonable as the hotel has a tie in with the San Lorenzo golf course. We have stayed at the hotel before and it has been recently partly updated to a good standard in the reception, bar and dining areas. However, other areas are rather tired and in need of further improvement. The bathroom and separate wc in our room were tatty and certainly not 5 star; the paintwork needs attention; the bath/shower and basin look original and are very dated. We were on the 5th floor and it took an age to get hot water up there. Our friends on the 4th floor had no problem in this respect. The corridors and common parts could also do with a lick of paint. On the plus side, I must congratulate the delightful staff on their courtesy, politeness and efficiency. They were great and customer service was outstanding. Ana in reception was particularly helpful. Breakfast is first class with a bewildering range of choices to suit every taste. So, I would rate the hotel as 4 star but with updated bathrooms and hot water system, improved paintwork in certain areas 5 stars for me is achievable. Collapse

Husband and son went of skiing so my daughter and I decided to try the hotel. We are regulars to VDL, and just wanted some sun for a few days. The hotel is really good. Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly in the breakfast area. We were really lucky in having four days of sunshine in February. We sat by the pool and swam in it every day. Also booked a new refurbished room with a garden view, but we could still see the sea. Room was very comfortable Hotel mainly had golfers staying but that was fine. Staff always helpful. If I had two comments, it is a bit of a rabbit warren to find your way around but you get there eventually . Secondly it is a shame that the hotel does not have a partnership with VDL and allow you to use the bus circuit. Seems a bit stupid to be independent when you are smack bang middle in the resort. But neither of these points would stop us staying here again. Sorry one final point, beware of new showers - if you use the overhead shower the bathroom floods, which is a shame considering they are new rooms Collapse
lovely location overlooking the sea, welcoming staff and updated rooms are very nice

We booked one night at the Dona Filipa in order to play golf at San Lorenzo. We hadn't played golf here for nearly 20 years so we were looking forward to playing the course again. Staying at the hotel means the rate to play San Lorenzo is at a good rate (compared to non-resident rate). Before staying, I'd had the opportunity to see a number of hotel rooms. The updated rooms are lovely and of a good quality and standard. Those that are still to be redecorated and updated are the same as they were 20 years ago and very much in need of renovation. We stayed in an updated room and it was very nice. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is modern and nice. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast and enjoyed golf at San Lorenzo. Fortunately it wasn't too busy when we played as we got round in just over 3 hours 20 mins - we were lucky that a group of four let us through and there was no one in front of them otherwise anticipate slow golf.
