                      Excellent stay for families, great spacious room. Loads of stuff for kids, great swimming pool and access to Beach was fantastic it can get a bit overcrowded during breakfast especially after 9 so go a bit early. Wifi speed was not great which in a way was great as it gives you more time off screen! There are a couple of good restaurants inside the Resort and a couple of options across the Road, mike's place can be tried which was a good option right opposite the Resort. All in all a good place to unwind yourself go for it!
                      Great stay, loved the place!

                      The location is great if you want peace quite and solitude. If you want more head somewhere north Goa. This was a great place to stay but then they have shortcomings like no travel desk, slight unresponsive staff and a little bit more quality control on the morning buffet breakfast.

                      It was average stay with no major complaints as well as no awesome moments. Location is good, staff is nice but rooms are not worth the money. Housekeeping is only done after multiple reminders, may be it is because resort was booked to it's capacity. Many facilities in the club area are paid. Foot massage, billiard etc.

                      The hotel was average and does not justify the five star ratings and exorbitant price we paid. The rooms are small and the service is average. The location is good. The cost is too high. I would have been happier if I had to pay less than half of what I paid in off season. Do not recommend the hotel due to the high price.

                      Good stay, great breakfast!

                      Aditi murkute

                      Extremely comfortable bed and linen, spacious room. But you'd expect that at a branded five star anyway so I'd say expectations were met. The room had a strange design though since the wardrobe and the safe were inside the bathroom. The breakfast spread and quality were impeccable, flawless, but a little repetitive with dosas. Breakfast personnel were on their toes with smiles on their faces even though they were running a packed weekend. The pool is big but again with a weird design that doesn't let it be symmetrical. One has to be careful if swimming at the sides. It's got a bridge over it at its center and it doesn't feel good to swim under it as it seems your hand in freestyle might hit its underbelly since it's very close to the water. But the water was very clean at all times and the poolside had a relaxing vibe to it. The beach was at a 2 minute walking distance from the rooms and was very clean with hardly any crowd. However, for me, what differentiates a wow experience from a standard experience at five stars is responsiveness to complaints and attention to detail. Here, Novotel didn't fare all that well. The table tennis rackets were completely worn out and had about 30% of the rubber missing. The pool had a very high amount of chlorine that our eyes burned and watered throughout the day and we suffered from blurred vision until the next morning. The next day the chlorine was lesser but still high enough to cause irritation in just 20 minutes. Another couple at the pool was complaining about the same. We did let one of the staff know and they said they would inform the morning staff to be careful. There was a tent card in our room that advertised the availability of their "Authentic Italian gourmet stone baked pizzas" at Rs.499 each. It didn't mention where were they available so I called the reception to inquire with respect to this advertisement and they said the pizzas were available in Sea Gull, one of their restaurants or even at the bar. We went to the bar and ordered for one as they looked great in the advertisement. They served it accompanied with 2 sachets of oregano and chilli flakes. It tasted good but seemed very dry. We asked for some pizza oil and they gave a little bit of plain olive oil in a cup, so little that I had to tilt the cup for the oil to accumulate so that tiny spoon could collect it. But what was surprising is that they charged us amount instead of as advertised and taxes additional. When I reported this to the front desk, they said the advertisement rate was a promotional rate only for in-room ordering, something which wasn't mentioned in their advertising neither did the reception say that when I had called from my room to inquire. And the in-room rate is usually the higher of the two but not in this case. Difference amount given is not a significant amount to pay when you're staying at a five star but this just shows the lack of clarity in their communication, lack of attention to detail. Had they made an offer to reverse the excess amount, which would be the right thing to do, I'd have been impressed that they have empathy. That's why, as a discerning customer, I'd rate my stay here as standard five star experience as against one that delights.

                      Grand in terms of spaces ... Great architecture

                      Ahmed Rahim

                      We had a great experience of the beach resort. Infact it appeared much better in reality than it does in pictures. They have a magnificent entrance if you can appreciate the style of architecture. Ms. Ellora at the front desk was tremendously helpful since we stepped in. We faced an issue with the room and her entire team got to fixing it. Rosaline the supervisor for the housekeeping was in absolute command of her team, which was very efficient. They have a great pool, larger than what most resorts offer. There is plenty of choice for pool side bar and snacks. It is an absolute family retreat, serene, calm, bounty of nature, plenty of activities for children, live music at the restaurant, huge pool deck, club house, haystack the sit out. Part of the resort is under renovation which appears will finish soon but that least affects their services. Rooms are of good size ... Infact garden facing rooms are better than the ones facing the beach since garden clusters have glass doors for all rooms. So if you draw the blinds you almost bring nature inside your room. Cavellosim beach is very Shelly. Ie broken shell pieces all over. But not so crowded as beaches in the North. So if you are looking forward to relax and have family time and enjoy a beach resort. Dona Sylvia is not just a great choice but the best choice.

                      Awesome Property on the beach

                      Mahendra Singh

                      Nicely built individual rooms, spacious and well maintained nestled in lush green surrounding. Nice and polite staff . Location is too good, just 2 min walk from the Cavelossim Beach beach . Well maintained swimming pool and really good breakfast . The only issue with my room was that the tree in front of our room was the resting place of crows. They used to make lot of noise and make the place shitty every morning . Although the maintenance people clean it everyday but the rooms around that tree are not the best place to stay in Dona Sylvia . There's a play area for kids and also a Sheesha Bbar . Lot of coconut trees with hammocks where one can spend some time is leisure . At the beach there are many Shacks, few of them are good at sea food but not so good in North Indian food like tandoori chicken . Take Goan specialties only . Network is good. You don't need to ask for WiFi password . You can find a agent named Go pal who works for Jack's cruise, offering different packages, we took a dolphin sighting package . It was fun to enjoy the speedboat. Otherwise we didn't saw even a normal fish.

                      Excellent Stay

                      sunil mehra

                      The resort is wonderfully maintained with a very helpful and friendly staff. We had stayed in 2013 when it was just Dona Sylvia, and although the services were great even then, but the resort was ageing. However, Novotel has taken over and done a wonderful job by giving irt a fresh mint look. Special mention to Myra at the kids club for the lovely things she made for our daughter and her keen interaction and warm and friendly nature made our daughter a fan. Keep up the good work. Also, another special mention staff front desk who had gone out of the way for our daughters food requirements the last time we stayed at Dona Sylvia was as usual his most helpful self and made sure we had a comfortable stay. Buffet breakfast was top notch and the staff was very efficient and friendly. Specially the bringing of freshly made bakery items like doughnuts and croissants during breakfast to each table was a wonderful example of the attention given to guests. The pool is excellent and has enough space and varying depths to keep all age of guests happy. A resort we will definitely revisit when in Goa.

                      Good Stay

                      Deepak Keswani

                      Dona Sylvia Hotel is situated in far South. Hotel as such is very nice place with personal beach access. What is amazing is the variety of the food they offer. Veg and Non-Veg both the options are good. This Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort is recommended only if you would like to spend good time being in swimming pool, having good food and hanging out on Cavelossim Beach which is at 3 minutes walk. If you are planning to do lot of sight seeing, then this is not the good place. You'll end up traveling 3 hours a day for any spot near Panjim or in North Goa. Dona Sylvia Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort offered free Sight Seeing trip which included 30 minutes Mangeshi Temple, 30 minutes in old Goa, St. Francis Church Visit. 30 Minutes in Panjim where you can only shop Cashew/Kaju, chicki, kokam, etc.Dona Sylvia has cottages like rooms where each structure has 4 rooms. 2 on ground floor and 2 on first floor.Each apartment having small open space or balcony with garden chairs and table. WiFi coupons are available for Rs. 170/hr valid for a day

                      Highly polite and friendly staff. Nice property

                      mrudul dharod

                      We stayed for 3 nights at the resort. Having stayed at many Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resorts and resorts previously, we were quite impressed with the hospitality and care shown by the staff at the resort. Property was quite beautifully maintained (through renovation was being undertaken at few places). We were allotted beach side cottage and the view was just amazing. Security of the guests was taken quite seriously and there were guards to note each guest who would go to the attached beach. Buffet menu had a good spread both during the breakfast and at meals. There were plenty of chefs stationed during the buffet and there were quite a lot live counters as compared to buffets seen elsewhere. The pool was very well-maintained and was big enough to accommodate enough guests. Overall we were quite happy with the place and really enjoyed our stay there. Would surely recommend to everyone.

                      A spectacular resort

                      Amrish kothari

                      Me and my wife planned this trip after lot of hectic travel and schedule to relax and get refueled during our India trip. It couldn't have been more perfect. This Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort is the best option for South Goa trip with friends and family because of its facilities. Trust me when I write this. Best place to be in Goa during monsoon .. We got warm welcome juice & cookies .. You will find everything in-house. Galore of activities Serene private beach. Gardens all over. The view inside the property was awesome. The room was extremely spacious with all modern amenities .. The property is huge and well maintained from everywhere. There is no any bad comment to say about the Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort. The buffet breakfast spread is endless it goes on and on. We tried all cuisines. All are with awesome tastes.

                      Awesome experience at Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia

                      Sandip Pawar

                      It was all perfect. Hotel location is perfect right on the Cavelossim Beach, beach itself is clean and quite, having no or very limited access to outsiders. Food was good, breakfast was awesome and having very good variety. Food was overpriced, I must say. Hotel has 180+ rooms, hospitality is super awesome, you are welcomed with a pleasant smile by everyone in the Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort. Swimming pool is big, nice and clean. There is a kids corner in the facility where they conduct various events to keep kids busy, kids do enjoy it a lot. There are other games as well, like video game, carrom, chess, pool, various puzzles for kids. Except overpriced food everything else was perfect about the stay. I stayed there for 3 nights, I had breakfast included in my package.

                      Satish Malepati

                      My Stay at Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort for only 1 day, which is my mistake and booked another Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort nearer to airport. I would love to stay for one more day, but have to check out since my stay at other place was already done. Lovely rooms, good swimming pool, help full front office team. Room service is excellent and loved there service at all time. But only concerns was food at the restaurant, which needs a lot of improvement. But no worries we can manage food with little effect outside the resort. I would surely recommend Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort for friends and family member and also would love to stay if I go to south Goa. Beach on Right on the corner of the Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort which makes even stay a lot more happier.

                      Private beach which is clean and feels private

                      Vidya Bhushan

                      Rooms - spacious and comfortable, not sure if you can have a view of the sea from any room as the beach is good 200 m walk, lined with coconut trees in between. Food, Service etc. Is good though not Hyatt, Taj standards. So it wouldn't leave you complaining but neither does it leave you impressed. For instance, Taj Aguada kept our car washed, handed us a complimentary breakfast basket as we were driving back 600+km with kids. Marriott didn't charge for the extra bed they provided. Hyatt handed over vouchers worth 4000/- at check-in that could be used in their restaurants or spa. Such little surprises that make you feel special as a guest were missing, but I am just nitpicking now. For the price, it's a good value for money.

                      Pleasant stay

                      Samujjal Mondal

                      It was my 1st stay at your Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort, I generally put up at Radisson beside this property, but this time I thought to give it a try. The property is nice and maintained, rooms are OK, very close to the beach, nice greenery all around, clean swimming pool, but the thing that is awful is their inhospitable staff's, an instance I asked for a glass of water in the restaurant during breakfast but to my surprise nobody bothered to serve it to me, they were more busy serving foreigners. The guys at reception are quite politie and gave us warm welcome. Toiletries were very limited, not expected in a 5* Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort. So overall it was an OK experience.

                      Undoubtedly a 5 star rated property

                      Ankur

                      This property truly justifies its 5 star ratings. Every staff member treats you like his/her personal guest. Situated right on the beach with great landscaping, pool and rooms this property is highly recommended. There was an issue with our boutique room and the staff very promptly upgraded us to a suite with no additional charges. Restaurant offers decent vegetarian food with a wide variety of drinks and great live music. There is a separate kids' area where my 4 years old daughter enjoyed a lot. But above all it's the wonderful hospitality of the staff that makes this place absolutely fantastic. Keep up the good job Dona Sylvia. We look forward to visit you again soon.

                      Service was excellent and staff was very helpful. Pool was big and clean. Loads of greenery. Some improvement ideas - availability of bicycle was not there and so were the swings which I think were removed. We saw them during our last visit. Food was expensive.

                      The Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort is located close to the beach which is an advantage. The facilities are also good as it has a nice swimming pool. The food is not as good as Radisson which is right next to this Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort and offers a bugey service to the beach. Service here needs to be Improved quite a lot for sure considering the rate charged is high.

The cocktails and mocktails are an add on while swimming in the pool . I would have given half a star more but the option is not still available since they allow
