The location of this hotel still remains one of my favourites. whilst current conditions are difficult, the hotel were doing their best, although slightly more order is required at breakfast, that needs a little rethink to stop everyone complaining about multiple queues that don’t work too well. Pool heating was switched on, on the 1st sept, not sure why you cannot have it on in August, it would make for less cardiac moments and so much more enjoyable. Another lovely stay though overall, thank you!

3/5 Okay

Stayed at the hotel last year and loved it, but wasn’t quite the same high standards this year. Due to COVID the breakfast had changed slightly, instead of the biggest where you can choose your own foods yourself, it was a buffet that you had to queue for a staff member to pick your breakfast from, the breakfast was chaotic

We enjoyed our stay at the Dona Filipa. The pool area is beautiful, though I imagine could get over-crowded in summer. Breakfast was great although service in the restaurant (in getting cutlery, hot drinks or having plates cleared) was quite hit and miss. Our room was large and comfortable but I would not say it is 5 star standard, overall a good four star hotel.
