Hotel Dona Filipa
Our opinion: Popular hotel set virtually on the beach attracts a loyal following of guests, many of whom return year after year
This popular 5* hotel set virtually on the beach attracts a loyal following of guests, many of whom return year after year. Part of Le Meridien chain, it is well managed and, although the bedrooms are of an older style, the accommodation is very comfortable.
The hotel foyer has been a subject of a recent renovation and now provides a bright and contemporary entrance to the reception area.
The hotel is a short 5 minute drive to the Tennis Centre, a minute walk on to the beach and a minute walk to the ‘boardwalk’ with its good choice of restaurants and bars from which to watch the sunset.
A previous guest noted ” …. a great hotel as it wasn’t too big. Very friendly staff. We were very well rested and well looked after during our stay” (May 2007)
