    Novotel de Sylvia experience

    The property location is good. Beach is clean, unspoilt and is excellent experience. This does not qualify as luxury but is a very good hotel and resort.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Wonderful stay in nature's lap!

    Overall I had a pleasent experience. Location, ameneties, food was fabulous. But, they should check the room for cleanliness before checking in guests. Out of 2 rooms, we had to change 1 room because of pesticide sort of smell coming in the room. It was so much that it was literally difficult to even breathe. Although they promptly changed out room when we complained. Also, own more thing is they tend to miss out things after housekeeping everyday like face towels, footmats which we had to request them again. Staff was courteous.
