Well I returned to CSM exactly a year later. OK things change but I was a little disappointed. However, I had a fabulous two week holiday no delays on flights and the Hotel lived up to their high level of service.

Colonia Santa Maria, Sounds very classic as a name and trust me it is. White row houses with neat and minimal (but essential) furniture. Each row house has 3-4 rooms. Staff is friendly, Breakfast is good. But it's Goa! Who has food in a hotel restaurant hence I had it only once but it was impressive nonetheless. The end of... More

The registration and dinner was poor. The cleanliness was good. The beds were bad quality. The noise is high but this is expected due to the location. On room advice, the block closest to the reception enjoys free wifi. The hotel was very rule oriented, also like a dormitory. Of exceptional mention, was Vijay Sharma who went the extra mile...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Colonia Santa Maria Hotel Beach Resort, also known as CSM Hotel or CSM Beach resort, is the premier Four Star resort on Baga beach of Calangute. The silver sand Baga beach is rightly touching the property. You do not have to go onto the main beach itself for the sun deck of the hotel is the rising green dune from where you get magnificent view of the Arabian sea and sun bathe without being hassled by the vendors on the beach. Our sea facing rooms and suites give you magnificent views from your balcony. The resort spread over four acres of spacious gardens is built in Portuguese style villas, each having six suites/rooms. Main beach is just couple of minutes walk even from the farthest room from the beach. ... more   less
