The Algarve was named Europe Golf Destination of the Year for 2014 in the prestigious annual IAGTO Awards, the golf industry’s “Oscars” held by global golf tourism industry organisation IAGTO. The accolade followed on from the Dona Filipa Hotel and San Lorenzo Golf Course being honoured as European Golf Resort of the Year in the 2009 awards. The hotel offers everything that a golfer would want from their golfing holiday. Although the hotel and golf course are not adjacent to each other, they have the same owner and both are located close together in the stylish Vale do Lobo area. The Dona Filipa welcomes guests with a touch of glamour and the essence of true quality service. It has recently finished a major renovation; the new interior design concept both embraces the elegance and charm of the hotel while paying homage to its traditional Portuguese style. The Dona Filipa Hotel offers golf packages in conjunction with San Lorenzo, one of the most famous golf courses in the Algarve set in undulating pine woodland and bordering the Ria Formosa Estuary.
