Crowd Type: Foreigners from UK, Russian republic (Ukraine, Kazakistan etc), few Danes & Americans, rest being Indians

The hotel is located at 100 meters from the main Baga Calangute road, the small lane has mostly Kasmiri owned shops selling handicrafts & owners trying to flirt with foreign ladies :-( . Indians are given 2nd grade treatment at these shops

The best part of the hotel is the spacious layout with wide green lawns & palm trees in the front & around the villas.

The rear side of the hotel opens into the baga beach & has multiple shacks lined up. The tourists can laze around the shacks for entire day by buying a beer & snacks. The best part is that the beach is not crowded in this stretch as at main Baga & Calangute areas. One of the best places I have stayed in Goa

My recommendation :  I recommend this to families with small kids since this very safe location & children can roam around the hotel safely.

My stay in November at Colonia Santa Maria over 4 nights was a memorable experience !!
