Some of the waiters and cooks were soooo friendly that they were paying close attention to serve me well. It has a big nice lawn, where children can play. Swimming pool is also cleaned and nice. I will surely... More

We decided to stay at Dona Sylvia based on our good experience in the other hotel Radisson Blu the previous year - both owned by the same group. We had a total of 6 rooms booked with the entire family. Were there on 7th and 8th July 2015. We loved the property and the grounds also very nice staff they... More

I traveled to goa with my daughter and after going around North Goa, were settled here in tranquility and peace. While we couldn't really get into the water with the rough sea, we enjoyed walking around, playing table-tennis and binging on the meals. A nice quiet place, but with mis-managed wi-fi.

Dona Sylvia is the ideal place for those who lead a hectic and stressful life. Here the ambience is beautiful and clean. Plenty of fresh air, sunlight, greenery, a great variety of tasty food. Walk on the beach, swim in the pool, relax on a hammock or just chill out with your favourite novel outside your cottage. Rooms are comfortable,... More

At first sight this is a most enchanting place, beautifully maintained, manicured lawns, green all over, with a private beach. When you look closer the cracks appear. The most well maintained swimming pool I have ever seen, pristine is the word. But no changing rooms at all. Everyone comes to the pool in swimsuits, showers and then enters the pool.... More
