This centrally located hotel is a hugely popular accommodation choice in the area. The hotel is just a short walk from the hugely popular Baga Beach and is situated in the city's vibrant Titos Road area which features a good selection of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. The Colonia Santa Maria Hotel organizes daily boats trips, and there are several water sport activities to enjoy on the beach. Overlooking the hotel's grand swimming pool is The Balcao, the resort's main restaurant which is tastefully decorated with local Goan art and serves specialty dishes and includes live music and entertainment in the evenings. An excellent location along with an endless number of activities makes Colonia Santa Maria Hotel an excellent choice in Goa.

very good location to beach and Titos Lane”
I and my friend stayed this hotel. I really reccomend this hotel to you. most of customer are from Europe when I visited. This hotel is connected to the baga beach ,so you can reach there in 5 mins. breakfast is also good at this at this price. and the pool is also clean. About the room, it is clean and enough big to share with my friend. and It has a nice balcony.
A well organised quiet friendly hotel in a good location half way between the chaos of Calangute and Baga. Access to the beach is via private entrance directly behind Big Banana beach shake for a sun downer or two. Serves a good breakfast with a selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk if looking to dine out evenings. If I returned to this part of Goa I'd return to CSM, something that a lot of guests seem to do!
relax and enjoy”
We came to Goa to relax and unwind after a hectic dance tour in Northern India. We were delighted by the friendly greeting and facilities offered at the Colonia Santa Maria. We had good service and were made to feel at home. Would recommend as a venue for a holiday as the facilities are excellent.
Excellent location in Calangute”
The location of this hotel is excellent with easy access to the beach. The units are appropriate with beautiful gardens and security guards 24/7. There are 2 swimming pools available. There are is room for improvement in the restaurant both service and the cook. I would recommend using restaurants on the beach with no tax. The 5 to 7 Happy Hour is available for cocktails on the beach, but I recommend you supervise the making of your drink because the bartenders are not good in general, except for the mojitos at TGI Friday (copy cat name of the USA company).
Great location, two minutes walk to beach. Very friendly, competent staff. Swimming pool and adjacent area spotless as were the rooms with towels being replaced on a daily basis and bedding every other day. Breakfast could be a little more imaginative but fresh eggs cooked to your liking available as well as a range of Indian dishes; fresh fruit juice would be a great improvement! We will return
A good resort with direct access to the beach ”
Very well maintained property , very well managed. It is beautifully landscaped and planned. Spacious suite room with outdoor sitting area or balcony. 2 swimming pools. Playroom for children, a gym. It is quiet and safe. Some entertainment gets organized on evening at the restaurant but this is never too loud. Access to the beach from the property and next to several shaks you can choose, the beach here is pretty clean and not too crowded. However it is not far from the busiest spots of baga beach.
Good location ”
The location is great for easy access to the beach if that's what you want. I wouldn't sunbathe on that beach though, I preferred the hotel pools....small but refreshing. There are constant and numerous guards on the grounds to prevent trespassers. The food was good, the traditional music entertainment on the seafood night was excellent. There are good restaurants on the street leading to the hotel too. Most of the staff was courteous and nice, the guards were very polite. Wi-fi is only in the main lobby and disconnected/reset on occasion so that I needed to enter the password more than once. (They won't give you the password either, you must go to the front desk from them to enter it in your device.) The room was musty-smelling when we came in but that cleared up quickly with the fans and A/C use. There were dishes left outside our room from a neighbor's room service all three days we were there, so that was a downside. Overall a good stay. Would come back if I am in the area.
A very satisfying n pleasant experience...one of the best properties of baga beach”
Well over experience was awesome...quite helpful staff...neat and .clean rooms...more variety can b added to buffet breakfast.mobile signals are as it is weak towards beach rooms....if free wifi can b extended till those rooms nothing like it.
Great hotel, brilliant staff”
So I stayed here during the rainy season as I feared I might be hotel-locked by the rain, so I chose a slightly up-market one with what looked like a nice pool and great reviews. The hotel did not disappoint, my room was nice, spacious, extremely clean and well maintained and cleaned each day - new towels and sheets were perfect. The food at the hotel was priced well and very good indeed - fresh and tasty - as was the breakfast, which is apparently even better during season. The pool is lovely, fairly big and most importantly really clean and well maintained - plus thankfully there is some discipline shown to (female) guests that try and use the pool whilst wearing clothes - it's a pool people, wear a swimming/bathing suit - even if it's one that covers you head to toe - not clothes! There is no wireless in the rooms - but really, do you need this when you have a lovely pool and the beach a stone-throw away? Also the wireless in reception covers the entire pool and dining area and cafe area as well - so this is all that is needed. My biggest praise though comes from the staff, to a person from waiters to cleaners to chef's and those on reception - fantastic, efficient, friendly and helpful - this does not surprise me as the manager Vijay is a total professional and makes time to speak to every guest personally - lovely man and brilliant at his job.
FORCED WIFI NETWORK ON GUESTS”
Hotels policy of using a software to block guests from using the guests own Data Pack for Internet is clear violation of ones right.. A reputed hotel should not employ such tactic only to earn 5$ extra to use their WI-FI... As a business traveller I was denied my right to use online banking within the confinement of my hotel room using my own internet pack, and no individual would be comfortable to use an open WI-FI used by hundred others for online transactions.
Excellent understanding staff and great location ”
It was a pleasant stay, kids enjoyed, very friendly staff, reception desk was welcoming, I would say I was surprised to see each an every department staff speaking so well, location is great if u are with kids.... Over I was satisfied and would come back again Manohar
Colonia Santa Monica (CSM) - A good stay”
The hotel is located close to the beach - it is in between Baga and Calngute beach. If you want to Calangute beach proper, then you need to go 2-3 kms in full traffic (that is why i rated it 4 on location), but if you just want to be on the beach and dont care if you want to be on Calangute proper, then nothing like this hotel! It is 2 mins walk to the beach. Hotel has very co-operative staff and is very clean and well maintained. Breakfast is good and I have dinner twice at the hotel itself. They had live music (indian classical one day and western on another day). It was excellent having dinner with live music - my first experience! Hotel is very close to the market area and good from a shopping point of view. Children love it in the swimming pool which is clean and refreshing. The only complaint i have with the hotel is that they dont arrange for Activas on rent. As a result when i visited on long weekend the activas were hardly available and the ones which were available were asking for whopping Rs. 2000 rent for a day. If hotel can tie up or arrange activas on request, then it will be great. I stayed there from 2nd Oct to 5th Oct 2014.
Initially the room alloted to us did not have the ac working. they immediately changed the room.very prompt service.super location.room aervice excellent. fantastic stay. walk to the baga beach.luxky star mambo bobbys is a walk
It was simply awesome to stay in this hotel!”
I stayed for 3 days and had a great time indeed! The location is simply great! In the radius of 1 Km, you have all the great joints, bars, cafes. To name a few great ones, TITOS and BRITTOS.. What else you want in life? It is bang on Baga beach. There is a direct access to the beach, hardly 300 to 400 meters...as ou enter the beach area, there are nice beds, which one can use and have drinks and snacks....and off course enjoy swimming..... The hotel has nice stylish white Villa type structure externally....inside is modern.... You have a LCD and all other basic amenities, one would like to have in the room.... There is a nice balcony...and each villa has an attached garden, worth to look at or even walk.... Rooms were clean although the bathroom were a bit small... The restaurant was amazing....they play nice music....they have a nice bar...I am vegetarian and trust me they served nice veg food... Breakfast was limited but just right... They can add some more options..... We were surprised to see a gentlemen singing at the restaurant.... Ad they asked me to recommend a song or my wife and they would sing... They encourage to dance...the whole atmosphere is simply lovely and romantic... Staff are courteous and nice right from reception to the restaurant...my son had got sick and they held me connect to a busy doctor at his chamber... This was a great help..... Scoters are available for rent easily.... Taxis are right at the doorstep but I was disappointed as the taxi fellows had a monopoly and I was not sure if the rates quoted were genuine.... Swimming pool is small
Nice, Clean and on the Beach”
My nephew booked for me on line as I was on an emergency visit to Goa. I was not expecting much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised on my arrival. It has great location, very friendly staff and nice and clean rooms. I would certainly like to visit again on leisure and I highly recommend it to all my friends.
we family of 6 went to stay in this hotel. our stay was wonderful. specially liked the cottage kind of structure from outside of the rooms. very nice dining place & service was also very good. just on the beach & shacks around the place are also very good. we had wonderful time in this hotel. few things to suggest are larger swimming pool, they had two pools at different points within the hotel but smaller ones. also there was no mirror in the room, though the bathrooms were really good with good large mirror therein.
Nice Location , Good Rooms”
The stay was very nice, the beach was just besides the hotel. Most of the happening places in goa were nearby like Titos etc. Plenty of restuarants , Shacks , shopping places just within walking distance.
nice beach hotel - but no wifi”
nice beach hotel, reasonable cost for proximity to beach. breakfast buffet was reasonably stocked. pool out behind the lobby was very nice. room was a little musty. biggest drawback for me was lack of wifi, and what internet that was available was only in the lobby, and (i feel) at a very high cost $1 for 15 minutes.
We had a enjoyable Stay with a Good Room,Hospitable Staff, Regular Room cleaning service,and a good Breakfast.The Hotel location is excellant if you plan to spend your Day swimming at the Beach. The only suggestions I have is for the Hotel to arrnge with a nearby Beach Shack Bed Reservation for Hotel Guests and to offer Bacon for Breakfast on all days instead of only Saturdays.
CSM, as it's known locally, is a good hotel with rooms pleasantly spread about among the well-groomed grounds. My room was large, with a separate sitting area and a small balcony. Friendly staff, pretty pool area. The hotel has theme nights, with enterainers and poolside dining, a fun evening. All things considered, a very "civilized" place to stay.
