Dona Sylvia is a well maintained hotel in the heart of Cavelossim with a lovely beach on it's doorstep and a great pool for those who prefer. The decor is somewhat dated in the standard rooms but not shabby. We were initially given an upper room (at our request) but it had a Juliet balcony, so no opportunity to sit...

We were enticed by the gorgeous outdoor pool and the extremely close location to the beach. However, there were a lot of service difficulties. The menu had limited options and breakfast was very poor. The internet was a nightmare. After many complaints they did treat us to a lovely dinner on our last night. Also, the staff were very friendly...

We stayed at the Dona Sylvia 26 November to 11 December as a pre-Christmas holiday in the sun, and we weren't disappointed. The hotel exceeded our expectations.
