Dona Filipa Hotel

Set next to the beautiful nature reserve of Ria Formosa on the Algarve coast, and with sandy beaches and sheltered coves nearby, the award-winning resort of Dona Filipa boasts every facility you'll ever need for a truly relaxing Portuguese break.

The vast enclosed grounds of the fully supervised Kangaroo Club are the perfect place to drop the children off as you head for the San Lorenzo Golf Club. Designed by Joseph Lee and recognised as one of the best courses in Europe, it's only a few short putts away via the courtesy shuttle service operating to and from the hotel.

Evenings are spent reliving your day's triumphs, or otherwise, in one of the hotel's two excellent restaurants. The fabulous main restaurant, Primavera, hosts extravagant themed buffets, such as the Wednesday night Champagne Buffet, and the Sunday night Fisherman’s Buffet.

Afterwards, head back to your spacious guestroom or suite, with its terracotta tones, exclusive atmosphere and luxury amenities.

Guests can stay in one of the 154 stylish rooms, with views of the Atlantic Ocean, the hotel gardens or the magnificent golf courses.

Restaurants & Bars

As well as the main restaurant, Primavera, dining options include the Dom Duarte Grill Restaurant, Dona Filipa Hotel's fine dining restaurant, where you can enjoy a mouth-watering mix of international and Portuguese cuisine.

For an afternoon tipple or well-deserved sundowner, head to the San Lorenzo Bar. The terrace is the perfect place to relax after a long day on the golf course, and the daily live performances receive rave reviews.

Activities & Entertainment

Tennis is a popular activity at Dona Filipa & San Lorenzo, thanks to the three ATP floodlit tennis courts. For those who would rather sit back and relax, then the swimming pool is the place for you – plus the views of the Atlantic Ocean are amazing.

The private Beach Club on the nearby Vale do Lobo Beach is also a great place to unwind, and there are two alternatives when it comes to spa and wellness facilities – in-house massage and beauty treatment facility The Estetica, and the Vale do Lobo Royal Spa.


Vale Do Lobo, 20 minutes from Faro Airport.
