The situation of the property was perfect, it was very close to the beach with a collection of restaurants close by. Our suite was very large with a huge bed and pleasant sitting area, very nice bathroom and plenty of wardrobe space with a pleasant view.

Dated hotel
The rooms of the hotel are very dated. The bed were two old spring mattresses pushed together, where half of mine you could feel it has had it’s fair share of usage. The pillows were also very old with hundreds of clumps of fluff balled up inside. They did prepare cribs for us, however the structure of the building is not family friendly, as the elevators only bring you to half levels, and you will need to carry the stroller up and down the stairs - also going to the restaurant and the pool. The gym is also offsite. Doesn’t deserve 5 stars in my honest opinion

The Dona Filipa Hotel is superbly located within walking distance of their beach area, well equipped and staffed. The restaurant area is also but a short distance away as are the many golf courses of the Val do Lobo and Quinto do Lago area. The staff are friendly, helpful and friendly!

Never again
Outlets did not work in room to charge phones etc. Staff kept coming into the room everyday, starting with just after our checkin waking me up from a nap, even with the do not disturb sign on door. Asked front desk to call a cab, they called a chauffeur that was double the price. Breakfast was great. Close to the beach with lounge chairs.
