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.

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.
