Gunit K. Families - 27/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good hotel, excellent location! We were staying at radisson blu which is a joint to this property for 2 nights and we stayed 1 night at Novotel as radissson closed due to low occupancy. But to be honest I liked the Radisson blu property more than Novotel may cause its new and updated with its amenities in the rooms and restaurants are better. Novotel being a big and older of the two has its own perks but needs renovation as its very run down. Overall both were excellent properties. In their own ways.

Paras-Indian 24/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

Beautiful, comfortable and lush green resort. Very comfortable with spacious balconies. It gives feeling of lost in nature. USP is the private beach with minimal disturbance and undoubtedly one of the best beachs in Goa. Very cordial staff- Ms Zara is immensily impressive. She is always there to help one and all and immediately clicks a bond with her helping attitude. Buffet food spread is impressive. All in all a must stay. No complaints

Dear Guest, Greetings from Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort! We are thrilled to understand that you had a relaxing stay with us.
