Daksha Johar Stay at Daman Ganga Valley Resort in Silvassa
WOW. Yes, it was a great stay here. I had participated in the amazing games and it was great. It was not additionally charged too. I wish the staffs had been more prompt and energetic in their service. If that was there, then this would have been an awesome experience. Also, the food was not that good. It should have been much better.

Bala Talwar Stay at Daman Ganga Valley Resort in Silvassa
This is an amazing place. The service was good. However, the ambiance was not that great. From outside this place looks all classy but once you get into the room, it is all very cheap looking. I wish that there were better and nice ambiance setting inside the room. That being said, this was pleasant stay as the resort had some amazing recreational games. I always considered this place as a paradise for nature lovers. This is one place where one can sit back and relax as well as have adventurous sports. I wanted to take a laid-back and a relaxing weekend away. This is why I chose to stay in the resort here. It was completely worthy and an amazing experience for me. Also, it was very rejuvenating and refreshingly pleasant to have a stay in an estate instead of luxurious hotels.

Ghanashyam Dhawan Stay at Daman Ganga Valley Resort in Silvassa
It was a good experience. My cousin got married in this resort, and he took this package for close relatives. The stay was awesome. They had a big hall specifically set for weddings. The whole experience was great. I had an amazing time. I loved the whole ambiance. Also, the hotel authorities themselves have planned the wedding arrangements and those were really brilliant. My cousin was telling that everything was well planned in budget too. This is a nice place for small scale weddings, or bridal showers, corporate events. I would suggest this totally.
Renting a car with Thrillophilia was easy as well arranged for us with a good driver and good condition car
Car-rental was definitely a great idea to roam the place, everything went smoothly from hotel pick-up and dropped -off. The driver was nice altogether we had a great day... This worth it as it saves us from time and energy

Chatur Tandon Resort Stay and Water Park Activities in Silvassa
This was like the Wonder La. When I visited Dadra, I took an extensive adventurous package of treks, camps, etc. As a closure, I took this, and I was surpised. I was expecting some relaxing day, but it was adventurous again. No complaints though. They had amazing water sports, and super cool swimming pool. The food was good too. It is worth every penny. In fact, this is quite a steal at this price.

Sumitra Dwivedi Resort Stay and Water Park Activities in Silvassa
With this stay and water park activities in Silvassa, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, I had a great time. After tiring visits to the forests there for a research, we picked this package to stay over. This was a delightful stay. We stayed in one of the most popular resorts in Silvassa. We also enjoyed an array of facilities in the water park. With a group of other travellers, I got to play a lot of exciting water sports. I enjoyed those a lot. The food was good too. Also, the stay was brilliant. It had a 4 star experience. The only drawback was the crowd at the resort. I suggest this totally for all people. It is totally worthy at this price for all of you people here. Especially, your kids will enjoy this, so if you are planning a family vacation, take this one. It is worthy.
