"Lovely golf resort for training camp!"
The Danish Golf National Team held their annual training camp at Donnafugata from 14-21 February 2017. We had received a great offer and were excited to explore the facilities at Donnafugata. When we arrived on Feb 14 we were welcomed by the friendly and service-minded staff at the reception - you felt very welcome and got the feeling that this is a very unique spot in Sicily...the main lobby is amazing! ROOMS/HOTEL: The rooms are spacious with a large bathroom, comfortable beds and lots of closet space. The interior and resort is beautiful and the buildings blends perfectly into the surrounding green areas. Everything is well maintained. Outdoor pool area was closed for the winter but it looked nice - fitness/spa area was great. Loved the steam bath and the indoor pool where you could easily spend 60 min. per day (if we only had the time to so do :) ).... Wifi works great around the resort - all the way from the lobby to the driving range. FOOD: The breakfast was amazing with everything you could desire! Loved the Latte Macchiato and nutella croissant! We had buffet lunch and dinner as part of our group event and the food was good. Lots of pasta with different sauces - perfect for young athletes with a busy schedule. As an adult gourmet I could have hoped for a bit more variety in the menu - maybe next year :) GOLF: Obviously the golfing facilities was the most important thing for us! Unfortunately the short game area and putting green was not up to standards and that was really our only concern for the week - had they been better I would have given the resort 5 stars! The condition of this area should be improved if we shall come back to Donnafugata next year as this is crucial for the players' ability to practice well throughout the week. The driving range was fine and the two 18 holes course (Links and Parkland) were great and very different which gave the players lots of variety during the day. The greens on the courses were in a better condition than the putting green, so thumbs up for that. All in all Donnafugata is a beautiful spot in the Sicilian countryside and hopefully we will return next year!
"Amazing hotel and great food & service "
Been there for one night beginning of December. I have to say that the place is stunning and great views and golf courses everywhere. Very nice arrival experience with the reception lady who checked us in and gave us a nice free upgrade. Food is great in all restaurants and has a lot of option and the real taste of Sicilian food. Gold courses are great especially parkland and the ladies at the gold reception and really friendly Definitely coming back again and for looking forward spending the new year eve there.
"Lovely hotel with service from the heart "
We stayed over a long weekend at this beautiful hotel. From the check in till the check out we experienced excellent service from everyone. Especially the concierge team was very helpful and gave us good recommendations. The golf course is well maintained and we enjoyed our rounds of golf. All in all definitely recommendable.
"Great stay, friendly staff"
I stayed at the hotel for a weekend mid November and was blown away by the friendliness of the front line reception staff. I had a young guy help me with my luggage and he explained the resort to me and all the facilities. The food was great, however I wish they had more variety. Overall I'd definitely recommend it and come back.
"Thank you Donnafugata!"
My wife and I held our wedding reception at the Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa in September 2016 and all that we can say is Wow! Ragusa, Sicily is our favourite place in the world and if you are planning to explore the area (you should), you simply need to stay at Donnafugata. The hotel and traditional Sicilian landscape is utterly beautiful, but what makes this hotel so incredibly special, is its staff. We first visited Donnafugata in June 2015 and from Day 1, the hotel staff treated us like family, made us feel so welcome and immediately began the process of putting together an incredibly elegant and unforgettable wedding day. From the planning process, with Gabriella and Francesco, right through to the room / table setup with Massimo, these guys are the best in the business. Head Chef Giovanni sat down with us for a whole afternoon and composed our incredible bespoke wedding menu, which left our guests in amazement. The food is top quality, with a home made yet 5* feel, enjoyed in a truly beautiful setting and served by the amazing Paolo, who made our guests feel like royalty for the day. For those enjoying a break at the hotel, the rooms are of fantastic quality, the pool is beautiful, the breakfast the best we have experienced in Sicily (and we have stayed all over the island) and while we are not golfers, the courses certainly made for a wonderful place for photos! The hotel is c. 30 mins drive from the towns of Ragusa Ibla, Scicli and Modica and a similar drive to Comiso Airport. It is secluded, but enjoy that fact. Having stayed in many hotels across Sicily, we can say that this is the finest quality hotel experience you will find, nestled in the most beautiful part of the island. Giulio, we would like to congratulate you on your fantastic team and hotel, and look forward to seeing you next September! Amanda and Stephen.
