We stayed at the CSM for three weeks in March of this year. This was our fourth year at the hotel and can honestly say that the CSM is about the best you can get for location (2 minute walk to the beach) and cleanliness & service. We stayed in block 13 this year and the room was excellent, cleaned every day, clean sheets every day and plenty of tea, coffee & toiletries replenished every day.
I would like to say a thank you to Vijay the manager who helped to make our stay at the hotel perfect.
We have booked to go Goa again in December this year and will be staying at the CSM again.
we have noticed a few people saying that the food in the restaurant was a little bit over priced and not up to standard, well all I can say is that they must have being staying in a different CSM because on each occasion we ate there the food was of the highest standard and reasonably priced as well.
As for the breakfast, this was again excellent (Buffet style) plenty of it both Goan & European and plenty of it!
Especially when you factor in that you get a voucher for three meals a week during your stay here per person.
We ate out a lot and would recommend "Under The Stars" & "Fire & Ice"
If you're travelling with a tour operator don't bother with there trips out, just tell the taxi driver where you want to go and see and it will cost you a fraction of the tour operators charges.
We used Vinney (On the corner next to Pinto's bar as our taxi driver) and found him to be excellent value for money.

- 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
