We chose the CSM purely for location and couldn't have chosen any better. It's a perfect location 2 minutes from Baga beach, shops and Calangute all in walking distance. A taxi rank just outside the hotel, we had a great driver Kali the taxi man, who we used for all of our trips around Goa. The hotel staff were very... More

CSM is a great property very close to Baga beach. White buildings with manicured lawns surrounded by white picket fences brings the colonial architecture alive! Two swimming pools with sun decks, a restaurant that serves good food - north Indian, Chinese and continental along with an in-house cafe dot the property. The room was small but was clean and comfortable.... More

No words would explain the friendliness of the staff or the fantastic location. Have already booked to return next year and am hoping that the staff that we grew attached to are still working their. Rooms where basic but spotless. Defintely would recommend. Wuld not change a thing
