Dona Filipa Hotel Awarded 2016 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor
9 June 2016
Five-Star Vale do Lobo Hotel Recognised for its High Quality by Visitors
Dona Filipa Hotel is delighted to have been awarded with its latest Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. The accolade means all the more to us because it is awarded using the consistently great reviews our guests have left over the past year. Thanks to this valuable feedback, the five-star Dona Filipa continues to be recognised as one of the best hotels in the Algarve.
Dona Filipa’s entire team is constantly striving to achieve the high standards of service and excellence our customers expect and demand… and this award recognises the value and effort put in to maintaining our rigorously high targets year in, year out. And, as some of our guests have been coming back to the hotel since it first opened its doors back in the 1960s, we know that we must be doing something right.
Over the course of the last year, Dona Filipa’s Trip Advisor page has received such positive comments as: “Vale Do Lobo is a beautiful spot and this hotel's situation right opposite the beach and the Praça is perfect… I'd recommend it unreservedly again and would certainly go back” whilst another praised the food and service, saying, “Breakfasts are legendary with a vast array of fresh fruit, pastries, bread, cold platters and hot dishes. A chef will cook an omelette whilst you wait, then eating it out by the pool it was heaven.”
Growing year by year, TripAdvisor has become one of the most trusted and widely used rating websites in the world. From, accommodation to dining and entertainment, there isn’t a restaurant, hotel, theatre or bar worth its salt that can’t be found on their site. Very few people make plans without consulting TripAdvisor nowadays… with up to 340 million people research and share experiences on the site each month.
JJW Hotels and Resorts also offers two other TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-awarded hotels in the Algarve: the five-star Penina Hotel & Golf Resort and four-star Formosa Park Apartment Hotel. Penina is set in over 360 acres of grasslands and natural beauty and is the original home of golf in the Algarve. There are three golf courses to choose from, including the legendary Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course, which has played host to a record ten Portuguese Opens… whilst the luxury resort also boasts six restaurants and bars serving a huge range of Mediterranean and international cuisine.
Meanwhile, the Formosa Park Apartment Hotel is set against the backdrop of the stunning Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and offers guests exceptional scenery and wildlife. Conveniently located next to the Blue Flag Ancão Beach, guests can enjoy one of the finest stretches of relaxing coastline to be found anywhere in the Algarve. All guests (like Dona Filipa Hotel) also receive exclusive access to the award-winning San Lorenzo Golf Course, and the 27-hole Pinheiros Altos, one of the leading golfing centres of excellence in Europe.
