Costa's Montage is a family owned property(mostly), though some units are privately owned. The whole place though, is managed by Faye, who is very reliable and dependable when it comes to handling the logistics of your stay, and travel, etc. She usually goes out of her way to help make your vacation just right.
The property is bang in between the Benaulim village and the beach, making it the most desirable place to stay.
The villas are mostly single room studios, and are very well maintained and cared for.
Designed for peace, quiet and most importantly, privacy, I have been staying here every year atleast once, and in some years, I am lucky with time, twice a year. My stay usually lasts about 3 to 7 days, and because of the cost of rental at Costa's Montage, I find it very affordable.
The swimming pool is large though not Olympic sized, and happily accommodates kids, adults and edge holders quite comfortably.
The rooms are all air-conditioned, and bathrooms have hot water.
The most important thing I like about the place is that every unit also have it's own mini pantry, with a gas stove and refrigerator, so that you can actually do some light cooking if you are feeling too lazy to go out for food. I personally have limited culinary skills so I have limited myself to unlimited amounts of coffee and cup noodles.
Two well stocked departmental stores in the village centre is just a 10 minute walk, and you can buy just about anything from there. My shopping list when I stay there usually includes, lots of soft drinks and juices, mineral water, snacks, sugar, instant coffee, milk and ready-to-cook food that I can fill the fridge with, there by cutting down on my expenses, and also allowing me to play dead, with good fat book or my Kindle. Remember, the pantry has some utensils, but nothing that may allow elaborate cooking. its got frying pans, tawa, utensils for boiling, etc., but no pressure cookers.
Another good thing, you will find that every room also has a very nice clothes drying rack, which is especially handy for drying your beachwear or your laundry.
