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.

Very friendly hotel!
I would highly recommend getting a taxi to the hotel from the airport as the coach cannot get down the narrow road to the hotel reception, as we found out when we arrived! We were greeted by the friendly girls on reception and given fruit juice to drink as the paperwork was sorted. We were put into room 201 which is right by the main pool which we were slightly nervous of the music and entertainment being too noisy in the evening but the music goes off at 10.30pm. The room was cool inside and simple but had everything we needed. A very nice sized room. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and all say hello even the pool boys. It's a little walk down to the beach where we tried the banana boat but preferred Bobbys beach shack. We'd go there for lunch where we felt very welcome by Raj and his team. Breakfast was good the egg man will do your omelette just as you request which goes down well with the coffee with just hot milk! We enjoyed the food in the hotel especially the battered prawns but we're disappointed by the steak night as it wasn't steak at all... So we went to a couple of restaurants aftrr that night just a 5 min walk down the road, the cherry olive and our favourite the fire and ice restaurant. We really enjoyed our stay at the Colonia Santa Maria and like others have said it's a little piece of heaven in the chaos outside! ! Thank you to all the staff :o) More

It is bang on baga beach-couldn't have asked for a better location. Located in the heart of North goa. Lovely rooms and lovely library and reading room on the property. Two swimming pools and a decent restaurant if you are too lazy to go out.More
Average property, old construction not at par with the newly built resorts. When we entered our room intercom was not working. Electronic safe was locked. Around 1 A.M power in our room tripped and as intercom was not working I had to walk to the reception to complaint about it. Limited coverage of WIFI only in reception area and restaurant. Weak Mobile signals in the room so One can't use mobile data . No mini bar in the room. Although the staff was courteous and attended the above complaints quickly but still it took 15 hours to solve the intercom issue. Breakfast was above average. Only good thing about is the location. Overall property is overpriced for the services it provides More
Green, Widespread, Beach-side property - LOVELY!!!
We (4 adults and 2 children) stayed here for four nights and enjoyed every bit of this beautiful beach front property - its massive in terms of area, amenities and the way you get treated by people working there. I & my family totally loved it. Don't forget to spend evening at the beach side restaurants - they are open until 2am midnight - sit, relax, eat and drink. Enjoy the famous baga beach - just walk a few meters from the hotel and you will be at the famous baga beach. Would love to be there again soon!More
A secured and well maintained property with nice rooms
This property very well maintained with room blocks on both sides of a beautiful stretch towards the beach. The beach is not visible from the rooms but once you walk out of the guarded gate towards the beach you just have to cross the shacks to be at the beach ( hardly 5 minutes). Breakfast buffet is very good. There are neat pool areas too. Staff is courteous and helping. Proximity to Baga beach and Tito's lane is an advantage. Wi fi not active in rooms, only in the reception area.More
