This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this place in the last 10 years and both the times our experience has been the same. Quite peaceful place to relax, chill... More

Resort is located bang on the beach. Being south Goa the beach is beautiful and clean and without nuisance associated with other beaches of north Goa (hawkers/garbage). Hotel is... More

Our annual conference of Registered Investment Advisors (fpgindia.org) was recently held at Dona Sylvia from 26th to 29th July 2016. The hotel is 50 minutes away from the airport and almost 25 minutes from Madgaon railway station. The location is beautiful and is less than 100 metres away from the beach. The hotel offers a private entry to the beach.... More

We drove to Goa- from Delhi- wife, me and two daughters- a teen and a tween. This was the perfect place to stay at after 4 days on the road. As it promised - it was luxurious and absolutely on the beach. A great breakfast would be followed by a trip to the beach, you simply walked from out of... More

For someone who wants a lazy holiday the hotel is fine since the beach is nearly at the doorstep. But since the cottages are spread over the property and the Radisson Blu is in the same compound the use of a buggy is necessary which are only 3 in number and therefore take a while to come. The rooms are... More
