Dona Sylvia "Beach" resort

I am looking at Dona Sylvia Beach Resort.........As we like a beach walk during the day can anyone please tell me is it on the beach as I read somewhere it is a five minute walk and also read that it is a walk through hotel gardens to beach??? Also is it close proximity to go walk to bars, restaurants, shops etc in the evening please?

The DS gardens lead onto the beach under 5 mins walk. The hotel is literally on the doorstep of the village centre so everything is in really easy access!

It really is a nice stroll through the gardens to get to the beach. We stayed in the radisson and cut through. Would stay here again as everything is on the doorstep.

It is very ideal for a beach walk . On left side you can go up to the estury beyond the leela and can see small ships coming back .Also you will pass via Holiday INN , which has anice shack serving cold beer and bites .Also nearby is sams shack .

The hotel has direct access to the beach. Building regulations stipulate hotels can't build directly on the beach, hence the walk through the gardens.

The hotel is in a great location for long walks along the beach. If you turn left you can walk to the mouth of the River Sal. If you turn right you can walk for miles to Varca, Benaulim, Colva etc - the furthest we have walked is from Colva to Cavelossim though we regularly walk to Varca & back.

The Dona Sylvia is close to the centre of Cavelossim village so you are within easy walking distance of shops & restaurants.

Depending which part of the hotel you are staying in, it can take up to 10 minutes to wander to the beach entrance. We were in between the beach and the pool, so it was perfect for either. The hotel also has a main entrance on to the road where all the shops are.There are quite a few shacks on the beach, but you must eat lunch and have a few drinks if you want to use their sunbeds all day. We found that they preferred to save the beds for Russians who were not staying at an A/I hotel and who would spend all day drinking at the shacks.

The shack that we used was Fat Willy's just a couple along on the right as you enter the beach from the hotel gardens.
