This hotel is situated on what must be one of the greatest beaches in the world. The hotel is excellently run - some quirky experiences, but nothing that detracts - and the rooms, especially the newly upgraded 'boutique' rooms, are lovely. This is the third time we've been there in the last six or seven years and it didn't disappoint...

We really enjoyed our two weeks in Dona Sylvia. The place is very neatly located near the beach and other restaurants and shops. The hotel is beautiful with well maintained lawns and gardens. I really liked the hammocks on the way to the beach :) This is the hotel you want to stay at if you don't like that much...

Had a lovely Xmas & New Year holiday . Accommodation was ok unfortunately we had one of the bungalows that hadn't yet been upgraded furniture wise. The food was very good as long as you enjoyed spicy curries. If you didn't the chefs were more than helpful to make you something European. A special thank you to Raju the chef...

It is a nice Hotel, very good swimming pool. Also a very expensive one, with a internet costly. The internet is very poor and the personnel didn´t seems to bother and solve the problem. It is a ack of respect for the clients. Food very monotonous, withou little variations

South Goa is the place to go to if you are looking for a quiet and relaxed holiday in Goa. Cavelossim is a beautiful beach. Dona Sylvia is a good resort. Overall ambience is lovely, very green and well maintained. The pool is gorgeous. The stroll to the beach is short. The room service is prompt. Buffet breakfast was pretty...

We arrived on Xmas day and we had upgraded to a Boutique room (we organised this via reception very efficiently some months earlier) at around 9am. I think because we had upgraded, our room was ready straight away. We ended up taking our own cases as I think the hotel were very busy organising the gala dinner for the evening...

“The boutique rooms are worth having - lovely rooms. We'd recommend asking for a single floor chalet.”
