Just been told that the hotel will not help us get to the airport as we have no cash. There is no cash in the local ATM's and we are stranded. Very poor customer service. Although this is a nice property the staff are less than helpful.

This sudden demonetisation of high value Indian currency notes has caused a lot of problems to visitors to Goa as also to all of us in business. We all do regret the inconvenience being caused to holiday makers and tourists visiting Goa. However, your credit and debit cards are accepted at Colonia Santa Maria and you will have no problem...

This is a wonderful property that is walled off from the busy part of town. It felt more like a resort than a hotel. The staff was all very friendly, always greeting you as you walk past and are happy to accommodate the best they can. The rooms were a good size, plenty of room for my brother and I....

I loved the property and it's location. The beach is just few minutes away. It's a small property and I liked the lay out. The rooms are spacious and neat. There is much scope to improve the breakfast menu and the service at the restaurant. The restaurant didn't serve bacon or pork sausages and for Goa that was very strange....

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
