Dona Sylvia made me fall in love with South Goa even more. We stayed here with our 4 year daughter and absolutely loved it. Our room was sea-facing, and was just a few steps away from the pristine Cavelossim Beach. The room had all basic amenities like tea/coffee maker, snacks, mini bar, toiletries, a safe for valuables, and an iron...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff are the best I have come across. They are so attentive. They really know how to look after their guests. The food was the best I have ever had in an all inclusive deal. I am European and I loved so much to eat the delicious Indian food. Although the included food...

The hotel has been refurbished in parts but our room was very tired. The room was made up every day and at night a male maid always knocked to enquire if we needed anything. A cobweb behind the bathroom door looked as if it had been there for years. Our air conditioning failed one night which was sorely missed, it...

Dona Sylvia – a true gem, in our opinion. The reasons are many… beautiful grounds abundant with trees, greenery and flowers (it is a true botanical delight!), pretty Mediterranean-style bungalows/villas all painted in pretty colours, the warm sea (and I mean warm) and golden sand, right on the doorstep. But, mostly, it is undoubtedly ‘the people’ that make Dona Sylvia...

Fabulous hotel and holiday in Goa, the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because you have to pay for the wifi!!! The hotel was kept very clean throughout our stay, there was a free safe in the room and free bottled water was provided every day. There was also a fridge in the room. Food was lovely,...

A perfect size hotel, everything laid out close to each other, pool, bars, dinning. On a beautiful stretch of beach, ideal for long peaceful walks. Airport transfer by coach aprox 50-60mins. E-visas are great but long queues as they all have to be photographed and finger printed. Passport visas quicker. Only one immigration form to fill. New terminal but transfer...
