Travellers' Choice
Overlooking Cavelossim Beach and set in 20 acres of beautifully secluded landscaped gardens, NOVOTEL GOA DONA SYLVIA RESORT brings to mind a quaint Portuguese village reminiscent of a bygone era – an architectural style that earned international acclaim for its architect, CHARLES CORREA. A truly wonderful and luxurious location for holidays, small meetings to large conferences. This luxurious 5 star beach resort is situated on the southern coast of Goa, about 45 kms from the airport and 15 kms from the Margao Railway Station.

The property is good, right on the beach. The Duty Manager Mr. Anshul was very helpful, but other staff was a bit rigid. e.g. if the pool opens at 8.30 AM, we could not enter 5 mins early, if it closes at 8PM, we had to get out at 8 PM. we stayed for 3 nights, had issues with key cards twice.We were stuck outside our room in our swimming attire, after walking back from the pool because the key card didnt work. Asked a Houskeeper to help us, but he told us to go to the reception. We had our infant with us. The property is good, but i do not pay to come on vacation to be schooled. I have given 3 stars only because of the property. Other than Anshul, the service is absolutely bad.

We stayed at Novotel Dona Sylvia between 19th to 23rd Feb’21 and it was a great experience. We were a group of 18 pax - all family and cousins/ their families. The resort is great, with a huge swimming pool, gym, club house; and the beach is at a comfortable walking distance from within the resort premises (about 2-3 minutes). The beach itself is clean and secluded unlike the more famous Baga & Calangute beaches of North Goa, which are crowded - not ideal in today’s COVID times. The rooms are Villa type cottages and quite spacious. Washroom size is also quite decent. Housekeeping service is quite prompt while the room service speed could do with some improvement, as we had to follow up multiple times with them. Probably becoz there was a marriage party staying at the resort. The breakfast and dinner spread is also quite decent with a couple of live counters and food taste and quality is good. About a couple of kms away is the Leela beachfront where you can do a lot of water sports activities like Para sailing, Banana boat rides, Jet ski, etc. There’s a marketplace opposite the main gate of the hotel, where you have restaurants, supermarket, and general stores. We’d a lunch at Mike’s restaurant nearby where the Indian food was good and the service of Mr Singh was excellent. Special shout-out to duty manager Ms. Zara who graciously organised a cake for a couple in our group who were celebrating their silver wedding anniversary; and Ms. Kaytie who helped us with a room for a late checkout. All in all, we’d a truly memorable Goan holiday and would definitely visit Novotel again when we visit Goa next!
