Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Just returned from 9 nights at the superb Donna Fugata. Blown away by the consistent standard of service and the size, quality and features of our bedroom. Safe, fridge, tea/coffee, the biggest bed, well appointed bathroom. We played 5 rounds of golf, and felt that the layout of the course was great, and very aesthetically pleasing, but the condition of greens particularly were heavily sanded and quite slow. But a good test of golf and very walkable. The pool area is divine, and not at all crowded, and the beach just enhances the facilities. Breakfast was memorable due to fantastic choice and quality.
Unfortunately we made the mistake of driving one hour to this golf course. While the pictures online look nice, don’t let the pictures fool you. This golf course is literally one of the worst golf courses anyone of us had played in the foursome. It looks like they basically ran out of money and stopped caring for the course a few years ago. All of the T marker signs are completely washed out, half the grass is dead on the golf course, the greens are literally like putting in a cow pasture. It was so bad that despite the ridiculous €200 we paid to play the course, we all decided to leave after nine holes. We tried to get some money back but unfortunately they said they could not figure out how to process a refund on the credit card… Surprise surprise. I don’t think that was the first time they had been asked. The four euros for a small bag of wood tees in the expense of golf balls only added to our misery. We are clearly spoiled in the United States with amazing golf courses. This course ranks high in Italy, however, if you’re going to golf in Europe I would stick to Ireland and Scotland.
Good welcome from reception staff. Nice room clean and with nice toiletries and thick fluffy towels..ate the first night in the grill restaurant by the pool. Service was poor, food very bland and overpriced for what it was. Also tried the one of the other restaurants again food overpriced for the portions. Breakfast is good with a varied selection. For the other 2 days we were there we went to local towns. Friendly, helpful people and good food. The golf courses are in dire need of attention. Very poor greens on the link course but the parkland one did fair better.
We booked three nights at this resort to take a break from sightseeing in other parts of Sicily. We are not golfers but took full advantage of the other high-class facilities. The resort has a spa, fitness centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and three restaurants. Our room was spacious and well equipped with a balcony overlooking the golf course. The bed was large and extremely comfortable, the bathroom excellent. We enjoyed the restaurants in the resort; the restaurant "il Carubbo" was especially good. The choice of food at breakfast was amazing. The resort is situated in superb surroundings and the old part of the hotel (a renovated farm estate I understand) is very attractive. Our thanks to all the staff and waiters we dealt with, who were all very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed ythe resort so much that we stayed an extra night. The only real criticism is the temperature of the outdoor pool which lacked a few degrees. Shame it is not heated. Overall a lovely stay. W e shall love to return
This resort had everything for a relaxing holiday.. Two beautiful golf courses, the most fabulous spa, an enormous pool, 4 or 5 restaurants, several great bar areas and luxury rooms. But the best part of all was the friendly, efficient and extremely helpful staff. They couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommend a stay here.
We enjoyed our recent stay at this lovely and atmospheric resort. We were fortunate in staying in one of the comfortable and spacious ground floor rooms which had its own terrace. As well as the accommodation, we appreciated the beautiful grounds, the elegant but comfortable furnishings throughout the resort, the quality of the restaurants, and the welcoming and efficient staff. The resort is situated in tranquil countryside, but is close to the area's many baroque towns and other visitor attractions.
Beautiful hotel situated in the countryside in South East Sicily. Staff extremely friendly and helpful especially as our luggage was lost by EasyJet for two days. They provided toiletries, advised us on where to go for essentials and also spoke with the baggage people to locate our bags. Two golf courses, one a links course and one parkland. Both interesting although quality of the bunkers was poor and some areas which should have been GUR. The rooms were well appointed, lots of storage space, outside patio, walk in shower plus bath. Lovely infinity pool although too cold to swim in it. However there was an indoor pool, spa, steam room and Jacuzzi that guests could use for free for an hour each day. Two restaurants were open during our stay, a Pizzeria which also served fish/meat and an a la carte restaurant. We ate in the Pizzeria and were happy with the food but didn't sample the other restaurant as it was closed for a wedding on the day we tried to book. Siciy is a huge island and there are long drives through windy country roads (with Italian drivers who are keen to overtake even if there is a bend ahead) to get to many of the attractions. This is the only downside to this hotel as it is quite remote and you definitely need a car with satnav. However, if you are looking for a modern hotel but with some old buildings that provide character in lovely countryside, this is for you.
Have recently stayed 3 weeks at the Donnafugata Golf Resort, excellent hotel and efficient friendly staff. Two great golf courses embedded in the wonderful Sicilian landscape of Ragusa. Look forward to staging future Golf weeks at Donnafugata.
The rooms, the grounds, the food are all top notch! they are a bit "isolated" but if you are looking to golf and/or want to have a peaceful time - here is the place to be. The staff is just so nice and the Chef was the best. They have a great spa also. While I didn't get any treatments I enjoyed the sauna, whirlpools and the steam room.
I’m traveling among Europe and Middle East and during the new year eve, I had the fortune to stay in this property. I had an amazing experience at Donnafugata Resort, the rooms are gorges, very clean and detailed oriented. I was delighted of the customer service at the reception, moreover I was extremely impressed of the quality of the food and beverage at the restaurant. The presentation of food was done by artist chefs, the quality of food was over the top! The service was all over the place even do was very busy for the year end party celebration. Best in class by far! John
