Excellent hotel! We stayed for 2 nights and it was wonderful experience. The service is very good: at the hotel reception, at the restaurant, bar, pool and above all the house keeping (thanks Krishna). It’s a peaceful and well maintained properly. The room was spacious, with all is needed, with nice balcony surrounded by nice garden. The restaurant is very good, local and international cousin. The beach is in a walking distance and super clean. We recommend to see the sunset and to stay for another 30 minutes after to see the colors of the sky changing. Highly recommended place to stay. For singles, couples, and families. Next to the hotel you’ll find shopping center, and few great restaurants. P.s Thanks for the reception team for the hospitality!

The property is right on the beach. So you can just walk to the beach and enjoy your time. There is a tap and shower when you come back. This helps to clean up all the sand and keeps the room clean from sand. However there are no shacks etc on the attached beach. Since we were looking for a quiet time at beach, this was fine for us but if you are looking for spending time on shacks then you will have to probably look at North Goa. The food in the restaurant is amazing. The buffet breakfast has good spread and the taste is also good. However the bakery items and dessert are not upto the mark. Definitely something that should be improved upon. The rooms are decent sized. One thing that we did not like was the fact that the almirah for clothes are inside the bathroom. This makes it really inconvenient especially if you want something when someone is in bathroom. The house keeping is good and always ready to help you. The swimming pool has varied depth. From 3 feet to 7 feet. This allows people with different swimming experience to enjoy. Also there is a small section in pool for younger kids. The clubhouse also has varied games to keep you engaged. Overall a very nice property to stay in south goa.

This was our first holiday with the little one and I had apprehensively written to Novotel asking multiple questions. The answers were satisfying and so was the service and stay. The property has direct access to beach - which is clean. The restaurant has breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. A large swimming pool caters to the large crowds and though there are 170+ rooms, the sections and spacing ensures that you dont feel in the middle of crowd. If you are traveling with kids, they make very tasty khichadi for children and offer milk complimentary up to a certain age.

Dear Ameya, Greetings from Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort! We thank you for staying at Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia and sharing your valuable feedback on Trip Advisor. We are delighted to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us and were happy with the facilities, ambience and services provided at our resort to ensure your stay was comfortable and relaxing.
