I stayed here for a week in February with my wife and overall we enjoyed the experience. I would agree with all the good points other TA users have written however there are a few areas that need sorting out. The first is the hot water system; we could deal with the fact that it was only on for a limitted time in the morning as it could be switched on when needed at other times. The problem was the awful racket the water pump makes. I read about this in a previous TA review but it is a noise that has to be experienced to appreciate how bad it is; a sort of groaning, growling noise that would not be out of place in a Sci Fi movie. Our first room was near the pump but we were moved after the first night as it was impossible to sleep through the racket: I get the feeling that guests who are only staying for one night get the rooms next to the howling pump rather than just getting the problem fixed. The rooms were generaly OK but the beds have the thinest, hardest mattresses and were without doubt the most uncomfortable I have ever attempted to sleep in.
The bigest issue was that the naturally beautiful beach is used by local fisher men as their main toilet. Whilst I understand that this is all part of the local culture, Casamaria does claim to be a beach hotel so they should at least try to keep the beach adjacent to the hotel clean (as the beach hut owners in Goa do). I'm no prude but there is something un-nerving about someone coming to squat within 20 feet of you and leaving a nasty surprise to step in. On some days the beach was disgusting and unuseable, certainly not the place for young children. The beach was really off putting and for reasons of hygiene I would not return: a shame because the hotel was quite charming.
