we are going to goa in jan 2008 staying at dona sylvia its our first time to this hotel ,can any one tell me if i need to take my own beach towels or do they have them there many thanks kaz
They have towels you can use round the pool and we did sneak them down to the beach shhh dont tell them we forgot to bring one back and it got lost....
thanks alishomoonbean can you tell me is it a nice hotel
we had a nice stay there but hardly ate there as the food although nice it was better and cheap enough to eat out most of the time.
plenty of cups of tea at breakfast and quite a good variety of food.
hubby had eggs most days.
free safety deposit boxes behind reception
the staff always wanted tips but we ignored the persistent ones.
pool was not bad, and really close to the beach.
you can read my review in my profile if you want.

Dona Sylvia is a big hotel and caters for people from allover Europe and elsewhere.....
Don't asume that because YOU have not heard of it its not a good one.
We have never heard of you either...........and most of your information is so way off line!
Agree with Jock and Ali ~ the Dona Sylvia is one of the most established hotels in Cavelossim and has been popular since the early '90's, with many, many repeat visitors and the grounds are immaculate. I'm sure you'll like it as it's also more or less on the beach and is close to all the good restaurants.
We stayed there last year, must have missed the guys who wanted tips, good at ignoring that sort of thing! We always took the pool towels down to the beach, never managed to lose one and wonder how you got away with that Alisha.. you have to sign them in and out? Mind you so many people there put their towels on the beds at about 7am and left them there till about 11am without going near the sunbeds you could have walked off with one of them and given it back. I think you will like it hotel, it was good, food pleasant, like Alisha we ate out as well, we were there 3 weeks and found the best Indian food there was near the end of our stay in late April when Indian people came to the hotel, it was great then. We thought there was a reasonable choice of food.
we did'nt sigh them out...maybe started that coz some one lost one...lol
