Guests are given a warm welcome on arrival. Unfortunately, because the flight arrives early morning, there is a wait for the rooms to be made ready. (The answer is to pack a swimsuit in your hand luggage, change in the loo, and adjourn to the pool!) Everywhere is spotless! The gardens have an army of people working endlessly. There is...

Full marks must go to the kitchen brigade for lunch and dinner service, who produced an excellent range of dishes, particularly vegetarian. Also, the patisserie, for the terrific sweet selection. Equally, Brasab, the Executive Housekeeper excelled himself in his attention to detail. Having spoken with his Deputy, who phoned Brasab, asking me to relay everything I had told her. Within...

Booked a Thomson package. Airport check-in etc very good at Gatwick, flight good. Long queue for e-tourist visa at airport in Goa. Paid extra for private transfer which was excellent.

It's 4:30am and we are our way to the airport. Typical Goan reception of queues at every stage. You need loads of patience and time. Few know the English rules of queuing etiquette but heh ho this is what Goa/India is all about, so you go with the flow. Apart from the queues what is not to like from a...

We chose Dona Sylvia for a relaxing 2 weeks holiday and were not disappointed. The resort, staff and service are 5* and if you have any problems, they endeavour to fix them immediately. This included the surprise 'dry' 3 days due to the Indian election. We were not informed about this when booking our holiday and were impressed at how...
