    We are Indians, We stayed at this hotel for a week in April 2017. Yes we were in a minority... mattered not. We received excellent service from all staff at this hotel. What I noticed was that the few Indians there were at the hotel had a tendency to treat waiters and other staff in a condescending manner, like they are inferior servants. I have noted this issue whilst travelling around India. Whilst India has a huge middle class population now, unfortunately the mindset of these middle class is such they treat the non wealthy people with disdain and rudely. No "please, thank you or smiles". I see this ALL the in India all the time. Try next time, smile at them, say please and thank you. If they do something wrong, point out so, but with a smile. You will get a shockingly good response. My partner and I are often regarded as "nice Indian couple". We stand out for our niceties with staff at hotels and restaurants. REMEMBER, THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS, JUST LIKE YOU AND ME

    HI, Would you be able to answer something for me. We want to book this hotel, but I have a mobility problem and tend to use a wheelchair to get about quicker. In your opinion would you say that I could access all of the complex. I know they have a disable room but not sure if I would be restricted. It looks a beautiful place and we'd love to book, but need to be sure of the hotel. Many thanks Joy

    I have stayed at Dona Sylvia twice in the past, I love Indian food so had no problem in eating. My wife does not like Indian food and found options very limited. But we love the people at this hotel. My question is simple: when we were last there the evening bar was located above the Reception Desk, was very small and so under-stocked it was unbelievable. We were offered only Fosters lager from tins or another variety and no cocktails whatsoever. We enjoy our evening drinks but will not return unless we are assured that cocktails, beers and spirits and wines are available in the evening and these are included in the All Inclusive packages offered to Uk customers. We would like to come end of May 2017
