We stayed at CSM 21st January to 4th February, it was our 1st time here and the 1st time in Goa - we picked this as it looked a 'safe choice' and it met our expectations. We booked through Thomsons and flew direct from Manchester on the 787 Dreamliner - this is highly recommended - feel free to email me...

I was disappointed with Baga in general. I was expecting Baga to be far prettier - the beach is lovely and the food is exquisite wherever you go, however that's it.

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
