I really enjoyed my stay here: the staff were amazingly friendly, the hotel was clean (gardens beautifully kept). The beach was a very short walk from the main complex. All the food was freshly prepared - the Seagull, the main restaurant, is a buffet, but there are two other restaurants. Mamma Mia is a mixture of cuisines, the Kebabs and... More

Just returned from this hotel but was bitterly disappointed. It has really gone downhill since last time we were there. I don’t know if it was a change of management or what, but after being twice before this time has made me realise that we will not be returning. It’s sad but you pay a lot of money to go... More

Quiet as entertainment finished at 23:00. The entertainment was eclectic. Fellow guests... More

Or hell, depends on the number and volume of weddings. Just returned from a week at this hotel, Deluxe Room as advertised and reasonably comfortable, but very compact and not my definition of deluxe. Food and service ok not exceptional. Wifi is charged and little better than useless. Pool area well kept and maintained, need to be up early to... More

Just returned from our 7th visit to the Dona Sylvia in 10 years, and its great to see many familiar faces both with guests and staff. So pleased that Maria has been moved from the restaurant to the reception area since she is an asset to any establishment, and has the qualities to become a member of management. Well done... More

Staff very friendly, grounds excellent, pool clean and well maintained. Rooms a bit dated but very nice, room service excellent. Entertainment in the evening very relaxed and varied. Christmas Night and New Years Eve gala were absolutely excellent and highly recommended. Had the misfortune of needing emergency hospital treatment, the hotel staff were very professional in particular one of the... More

Located in South Goa , hotel has an excellent location very close to the beach. Good swimming pool and the staff is helpful and cheerful. Wifi network in rooms is bad, though in the lounge the speed is satisfactory. Walk to the beach and swimming in the sea are two activities you would relish. The house keeping needs refinement >...
