The best part about Colonia Santa Maria is its location. It is situated right at the beach, between Baga and Calangute beaches. Exit from the back gate and take a right for Baga, and take a left for Calangute. Despite its excellent location, it is surprisingly affordable. The hotel itself can be categorised as mid-range, in line with the price...

We stayed in CSM for 5 days in Nov16. This was our second stay at CSM in 2 years. The cottages are just a hop skip and jump to the beach, that is what draws me to this place. The cottages are well appointed, service is good. There are 2 swimming pools. I preferred swimming in the smaller one which...

Good property and quite location. The beach is just few mtrs away. The rooms are spacious and neat. There is much scope to improve the hotel and specially the breakfast buffet which didn't serve cold cut and bacon etc etc which is very strange. Room service and housekeeping staff have been helpful. On the whole, the stay was good and...

We had a lovely time at CSM The room was superbly appointed, spotlessly clean. Our room boys made sure it was like it throughout our stay. Clean sheets every other day and towels daily.

We have been visiting CSM every January for the last 12 years. It is a delightful place to stay for people prepared to sacrifice some of the efficiency and facilities of a large modern hotel for the quirkiness and charm of a genuine Goan institution. Most of the reviews of CSM on Tripadvisor are accurate and unsurprisingly they are very...

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
