Near a sandy beach and very much a favourite for families in the summer months.
The Dona Filipa Hotel combines an elegant simplicity with modern art throughout the hotel and traditional elements in the decoration of the bedrooms. The Dona Filipa Hotel nestles at the edge of golden sands of the exclusive Vale de Lobo estate and near to the stunning San Lorenzo Golf Course, owned by the hotel and at which guests have privileged rates. The hotel enjoys breathtaking views of the sea and sits amid landscaped gardens where you find the pools and tennis courts, and whilst the hotel is not actually beside the sea, the sandy beach of Vale de Lobo is only about 100 metres away through the grounds and is equipped for the use of the Dona Filipa's guests. There is a wide range of bedrooms, some of which accommodate two adults and two children up to twelve, while others interconnect. The junior suites have an open plan bedroom with living area containing a sofa bed, but an extra bed can fit in the room as well. The deluxe suite has a separate living room and a spacious bedroom and two bathrooms. Furnishings are simple yet colourful and in keeping with regional character. A great bonus at the hotel is the Kangaroo Club, available for children aged from 6 months to 12 years inclusive. A whole host of activities are offered for the children according to age, and the club has its own children’s pool, playground and mini-golf with bouncy castles in the summer. The restaurants at the hotel cater for adults and children. The Primavera is the main restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; from here you can enjoy views of the swimming pool and the sea. There is also a more formal dining restaurant, the Dom Duarte grill. A short walk away, outside of the hotel, is a shopping and eating Plaza with an array of shops and bars offering entertainment. Also nearby is a putting green and crazy golf course. The combination of location, facilities for families and the range of bedrooms make the Dona Filipa an ideal hotel for families.
