Very peaceful beach, nice resort with Portuguese ambiance, big swimming pool, nice decor . Lot of in house activities at resort. Beach is kind of private. You can enjoy beer at beach shacks. White sand beach.

resort organised a city tour to north Goa, old Goa churches, Jetty ride, and also dolphin chase trip.
over all we had really enjoyed our stay at Dona Sylvia.

we visited in Sep2013, and the resort was just amazing, good food, amazing pool, beach is just a walk away from room. Nice facilities and good staff.
i liked it overall as in south goa you don't have much to do , but this resort solves it all and you need not go anywhere else.
The beach is a white sand one neat and tidy.
loved every moment of stay.
Truly recommended.

Excellent property and well maintained lawns. I stayed with my wife, mother and 2 yr old son towards end of August. Though the room was small, it is well maintained. Only glitch was the bathroom which was a bit small and needed repairs at places and the toilet flush was not working well. The room service was efficient though at one time they got our order of milk late at night even though that order was placed in evening (The evening order was served late and a reminder actually generated a second order). Staff is courteous and takes good care of guests. I would like to mention Prajakta at front desk and the manager Mr. Jimmy for taking good care of us. Coming to food the breakfast was good and served a variety from indian to continental. The Seagull restaurant staff was efficient. The 850/- + taxes for Buffet seemed to be overpriced and we usually had our lunch at Mike's restaurant just across the road outside. The resort has easy access to beach through its lawn and while the beach was wonderful, the beach shacks were closed as it was still raining occassionaly (just 5 mins showers sometimes) and the only good place to eat is Mike's restaurant outside DS. Still I consider this property as a good resort to spend relaxing vacation and if they only improve the food options then its really worth it.

Room Tip: First floor room has good balcony.

I stayed at Dona Sylvia with my wife for 2 nights/3 days. Actually all my earlier stays in this resort were for business purpose, attending my company's conferences. My holidays were just wonderful, thanks to the lovely staff of this resort. The best season to stay would be during monsoon as this resort is spread over 22 acres of green lush area, which blossoms during this season. The resort has mediterrian style cottages, mixed with Goan architecture. The whole resort has very well maintained landscaped garden, big swimming pool and a clean beach just on the backside of the resort. The lobby of the hotel is huge with typical goan style decor. Compared to many other resorts we stayed in Goa, Dona Sylvia has by far much larger area and hence everything is quite specious. The restaurant "Seagull' is recently opened after the renovation and offers excellent breakfast. The breakfast was one of the best ones I had so far. The buffet is bit expensive @Rs.850+taxes but a la carte offers aexcellent Goan sea food dishes. I would strongly recommend Prawns curry and rice as well as fish curry and rice, which is typically authentic Goan. The F & B manager Mr Rajesh takes personal care of the guests and treated us like very special guests. The rooms are averagely decorated but clean. The big plus is the open private veranda you get where you can sip a morning cup of tea....an ultimate experience. The resort is bit away from airport (45 kms) but this part of South Goa is worth traveling that distance. Special mention about the friendly and helpful staff of the resort. Ms Geeta at reception allowed us 3 hrs late check out with a smile since we had our flight in the evening. The only thing which is bit irritating is after checking in they tie a plastic coloured band around your fist, which you are supposed to keep till check out, for package identification. This is really really awful and resort should discontinue it as guests virtually hate keeping it tied during the stay.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms in the villa have an open veranda which has privacy as the ground floor ones a...

Hotel is good beach touch, Room Ambience is Fair, Staff is very Courteous & cooperative. Property is nice. Lot of activities for kids. Only glitch is food (Veg) which is average, lot of ideas needed to improve on it. Overall nice place for family, value for money minus food.

This is a lovely hotel, we are going again for Christmas - this will be my 6th visit, my Partner
2nd time. Lovely friendly kind local people, and very good staff at the hotel. Lovely beach
and all areas very well kept, and very clean.
Food was excellent nothing too much trouble when anything extra was wanted.
Only complaint, far too many rude, arrogant, ignorant Russians who seemed to think
they had exclusive rights to everything, and manners non existant. At times, we felt quite
sorry for the waiters having to deal with such arrogant rude people.
Apart from that, the holiday was fantastic, and can´t wait to go again this year.
