Dona Sylvia is a very nice place, beach is so close that when ever you feel like having fun you are on the beach. Prefer to take beach facing Vila. Pool is also big and full of activities. Nice spread in breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ms. Geetha, Mr. Shawan and Mr. Vincent were of great help to me. Lovely place...
