My son and I stayed at the MacDonald Resort Dona Lola from the 19th January 2013 for 1 week.
When we arrived there was retiling work being carried out by main reception and along the bar/ coffee shop and steps up to the car parking area. The landscaping around this area including the fish pond was empty as well and it looked very sad. The main outdoor lido was completely closed and drained with extensive work and what I can only describe as painfully slow work being done by 1 person. The Sky satellite service for Sports and movie channel stopped for 2 days owing to the subscription expiring. The indoor male changing room had a shower out of use for the whole week while we there for some re plumbing and tiling work.
On the plus side the reption staff were helpful and the resort manager was polite and keen to attempt to promote the facility. The quality of the apartment Room ((Elizabeth 212) was generally good and clean.
However for a 5* RCI resort it was frankly very disappointing. I strongly suspect that in the busy holiday Easter and Summer periods this resort is really good but in quieter Winter time especially January all the maintenance is carried out and I would definately not recommend it for a holiday in the Winter.More
