Stayed at the Dona Sylvia for a 2 week all-inclusive break 30th Nov – 14th Dec Stylish hotel with friendly service, including all members of staff right down to the maintenance team! Couldn't fault anything, but I think a hotel of this standard should, however, include free wi-fi. (Minimal charge of 300r/4 hours access) but that’s a gripe of mine... More

Just returned from 2 weeks here and I'm happy to say it was just as good as our previous stay early this year , (see my earlier review back in Feb). We flew direct from Manchester which took about 9 and a half hours...the flight is good though as the Thompson Dreamliner is a very comfortable plane. Arriving late at... More

Hey all!!I am revisiting this page to re-review this awesome holiday destination for the sole reason that it deserves nothing less. Dona Sylvia was the first name that popped into our heads when 8 of us really close childhood friends decided to have our get together in Goa!! We planned the trip 6 months in advance and friends from London... More

It was off season, so we got a good deal on this hotel. The hotel is on Cavelossim, so if you are staying in that area, the only thing that matters is your resort. Dona Sylvia doesn't disappoint on that front! Very pleasant staff, awesome buffets, amazing swimming pool ( it has a bridge over it!), pleasant grounds, beautiful bungalows... More

The hotel is wonderful Y located with beautifully kept gardens surrounding a low rise set of pretty " bungalows" and a path winding through the... More

A group of 6 of us went to dona slyvia in the first week of December. The villa was the one closest to the beach (when booking ask for it). The beach is the selling point- away from the chaos of north goa. The staff are surprisingly and uniformly are a very happy bunch and will accomodate your request(s) asap.... More

We stayed the first two weeks in December. It took 2 hours to clear the airport and another hour to drive to the hotel. Beware of the porters at the airport who will imply they work for Thomsons and wrestle your luggage off you and then demand money once you reach the coach followed by the coach driver then demanding...

Had a great time at the Dona Sylvia and would recommend this hotel. Not sure if this would suit picky eaters or families with young children as there is obviously a lot of curry and spiced foods. I am not a great curry eater but always found something nice to eat from the buffet especially the delicious deserts. Beautiful pool... More
