Donnafugata Golf Resort & SPA in Ragusa, Sicily

In southern Italy, Sicily to be exact, the luxurious Donnafugata Golf Resort & SPA – part of the LVX collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts – sits on the hallowed ground of the stunning Donnafugata Manor. Set on emerald fairways designed by Gary Player, the resort is close to breathtaking beaches and cultural landmarks. Recently renovated, the hotel retains its original details while embracing advances in technology. The collection of two and three-story buildings conceal spacious guestrooms and suites. Attention to detail is noticeable behind each chamber door. There are wide plank, hardwood flooring and calming color washes. Advances in technology are discreetly evident with wireless internet access, satellite television and well-stocked refreshment centers.

While the 18-hole championship golf course certainly is enticing for enthusiasts, the resort is also a celebration of the palate. Il Carrubo is the resort's fine dining restaurant with striking interiors and an equally impressive menu of international and regional fare. Breakfast is served inside Il Fico d'India where a buffet of morning favorites is displayed alongside pots of steaming espresso. Golf House is the quintessential 19th hole and features celebratory cocktails and appetizing plates. You will also be pleased with the state-of-the-art fitness center and wellness retreat where a full spectrum of spa treatments is available. The region, part of the UNESCO World Heritage program, has withstood the test of time. Sicilian Baroque-style architecture has been meticulously preserved and the cities that make up this part of Italy - Ragusa, Modica, Ibla, Noto and Scicli - is teeming with ancient cathedrals. A stay at Donnafugata Golf Resort & SPA gives you the best of both worlds allowing you to experience relics from centuries past while enjoying many modern conveniences.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 16 hours ago

I have recently returned from a two night business trip to this hotel. The hotel lies in the beautiful Sicilian countryside and has it owns 18 hole golf course with many of the rooms offering views overlooking it. The rooms are all of a high quality standard and offers all the facilities you would expect from a 5* property. We ate in the main buffet breakfast as well as the on site restaurant and all then food we had was delicious and of a high standard. The breakfast especially had lots of choice and catered to all tastes. Although we didn't make use of it, we had a tour of the onsite spa and wellness centre which again was of a high standard. I really enjoyed my stay at this lovely hotel especially in the outdoor areas such as the around the infinity pool and the lovely outdoor square from the restaurants and bars.

A lovely spot but the entrance road to it is very poor and scruffy. You have to park away from the hotel and walk up to its non decrpit entrance. Staff are friendly,rooms are spacious and well equipped. Lovely grounds poor signage can leave you wandering around . Nothing feels really joined up ! Food was Ok and breakfast a bit canteen like. Pool and facilities are excellent. I don't play golf and visited for a 2 day conference

Seven golfers, mixed group, 5 nights, 2 rounds on each course. Let's start with the positives. Nice welcome, good size room, clean and well serviced. Excellent concierge/front desk service. Good breakfast buffet selection. Efficient caddy master support, helpful proshop staff. Lovely old courtyard area with excellent cocktails service in the 'night bar'/sunset bar. Very nice indoor pool/hydrotherapy layout. Attractive ourdoor pool and extensive pretty gardens. BUT....its a golf resort and its not being cared for anywhere close to well enough out on the courses. Both have excellent design layouts. The Links especially has lots of really interesting and memorable holes. But if you've got a course which is littered with many huge bunkers you have to ensure there is enough sand in them! Many were virtually bare, with no sand running up to 360 degree vertical lips, stones galore (and even the odd broken bolt to contend with. Such a shame. The Links fairways too (and some tees) were neglected with a quiet significant rabbit damage. The Parkland course was mainly in better condition and the greens putted better. But large areas of fairways had been infested with weed and coarse grasses. The fine dining restaurant was closed throughout our stay, so we ate out after the first night. The Clubhouse restaurant was poor, with poor service, even surly on occasion. The buffet at lunch was fine, but the salads from the a la carte menu were atrocious. Overall the review has to be decided by the quality of the golf offering...and that's only 3 star. It really needs more resource allocated and significant refurbishment on both courses. I hope it gets it....SOON.

We stayed at Donnafugata as the first part of a two destination trip with Verdura. The resort is undoubtedly very pretty, with a lovely central square with bars either side. The main restaurant had excellent food, pricey but as the Ā£ has slumped against the Euro it is to be expected. The staff were very friendly. However, there were several issue with the resort. First, was our room with a bed like concrete to sleep on. Despite complaints over several days and many failed attempts to add toppers, the bed remained very uncomfortable and the lack of sleep affected our enjoyment of our stay. We finally gave up trying to get the bed softer when quite comically, housekeeping put a set of pillows underneath the top sheet! This made the bed about a foot higher than it would normally have been and absolutely impossible to sleep on - this is a five star resort, remember!! Considering that the property appeared to us to be barely half full during our stay, it was very odd that at no point were we offered a bed in another room to try. Our private terrace was also a mess, constantly covered in cigarette butts blown across from our neighbours' room. The smokers left half way through our stay, but their full ashtray of butts remained for the remainder of our stay. Sadly, there was also little point actually having a terrace, as the sun could not be seen from it after 9:00 in the morning. The next issue was the state of the golf courses. Both were in very poor condition, the Parkland especially had dreadful fairways full of weeds and ant hills. The Links course was slightly better, but throughout our stay we did not see any greens staff working on the course. When we asked in the pro shop about the condition of the courses the director of golf did not even bother to come out of his office to talk to us. Is this five start service? Our conclusion that the resort is struggling financially is based on the lack of staff (both on the course and manning the bars), the lack of clientele in the property, and the final clincher was when one of the senior staff heard that we were moving on to Verdura he handed us a business card to pass on!!! Despite being situated in a nice quiet location, we will not be returning to Donnafugata. Verdura has probably taken much of the golf business away from this resort, and for very good reason as it is a far better resort. For golfers looking for luxury and good quality golf courses Donnafugata could not be considered in the same class as Verdura.

The hotel was very welcoming and the staff were charming. Rooms were comfortable although there was some bad scratching on the floor. Facilities were first class. The golf courses were very nice and challenging although the bunkers had suffered in the rain. The hotel was well placed for Montalbano fans
