Just footsteps from the beach and within walking distance of Calangute's beach bars and restaurants, the Colonia Santa Maria cottages make for a great holiday base.
The Colonia Santa Maria doles out cottages just a stone’s skim away from Baga Beach and within walking distance of Calangute.
Portuguese-Indian style reigns supreme at the Colonia Santa Marina, so whitewashed walls, terracotta roofs and patterned tiles are teamed with jewel-bright colours.

Great location but bad service pathetic breakfast
The hotel right next to baga beach with access to the beachside is a great location for those who loves good food, great shopping & a quiet place. Cannot be compared to the sizes of those 4/5 star properties of south goa, still for a north goan property this has enough space. One attraction was their separate plunge pool & a normal size pool, esp if you're travelling with Kids. Rooms were quite big with extra sofa cum bed, as they charged us for kids despite being a group. Considering the long weekend rates and the price paid, their Service is pathetic, in terms of response times and resolution. We had leaky taps, lack of water in the shower, request for towels etc being unanswered until multiple calls to reception. Poor Mobile connection & Data connectivity across the resort !!! The worst part is their Breakfast menu, which is best to be AVOIDED !!! Given an option, please dont choose a CP plan, ,instead eat from outside the resort.More
Awesome location.. Peaceful colonial resort.
Stayed with Family here, my 4 year old daughter loved the swimming pool, I liked their Service, tasty buffet breakfast, location is too good just between Baga and Calangute Beach. Used to walk every morning on beach during stay. More
Great Location, Lovely Property... Poor Service & Food
CSM... a great property right on the Calangute - Baga beach corridor with direct access to the beach. Array of shacks and famous restaurants within walking distance of the property The rooms... though a bit old are spacious and comfortable, well suited for the relaxing vacationeer. What gets you however is the services... be it the front desk, the room service, the spa or the F&B. The breakfast is pathetically bad... just not anywhere in line with the goan hospitality and flavors, a damp squib... forcing us literally to skip it daily and head out for some good breakfast. After this we did not have the heart to try the food in the hotel at all. 10/10 for the location, 8/10 for the room 5/10 for the rest.More
Service /Quality/Maintenance - Never ever visit to this property again
We have requested the Manager Jeniffer for early check in twice before coming ,the agreed to give us check in at 7 am provided rooms are available otherwise 8 o clock for sure. I saw in one review they have given one of the foreigner early check at 6 am . But we reach there at 5 am and were fine getting room at 7 , but the manager vithal there was unaware of the conversation between jeniffer as she has not communicated and he claimed that whole hotel was booked and he cant give initially and after few mins he ask for money to give we denied to give money and said we are fine check in at 7 as promised. @ 7 the vithal guy comes and was hovering in the property and said manager not picking call hence he cant do anything after lot of argument we get the room at 7 30 and the rooms were single bed and stinky ....You cant survive in that rooms. all the places i could see dirt , the cover are not washed well. and dampening smell. we changed our room to double bed and surprisingly multiple option were available at 7 30 . but still all the rooms has dampen smell were dirty , the shower handle was broken , the latch was broken , infact sofa seems it was not cleaned since ages and lamps had all the dust. I have dirt issue and I got infection due to that . Now come next the TV was not recharged and after reminding 10 times they recharged the TV at 11 at night . the whole day went and breakfast ., please do not expect for variety , they hardly have anything to eat and they royally say no if it gets over , you will have to fight it out . I felt like I am on mission as from starting to end. Awful experience , i dont recommend to anyone, pl do not visit.More
Was ok, just barely
Good location, easy access to the beach. NO WIFI: only in reception. NO Airtel signal: only in very few places (and rarely got 3g or 4g) NO Vodafone signal: barely better than Airtel Basically, you are cut off from the world when you are staying at the hotel, for the most part Swimming pools are functional: but there is no control / check on folks jumping in without taking showers or being improperly clothed. (folks in underwear or in shorts: yuckk) Breakfast selection is fairly limited Staff is friendly and courteous Food taste is kind of average Rooms are spacious on the ground floor: not sure about the other floors Parking space is sufficient, just barelyMore
