This is a classic hotel with a variety of rooms and a quite good restaurant. An adult pool next to a large deck can make for a pleasant afternoon of watching some huge waves. The kid pool is in another area. The rooms are not fancy, but very serviceable and some of the larger suites have private balconies. There is...

We stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe for the second time in 3 years. The hotel is not over-the-top fancy, but gives you clean and spacious rooms in lovely surroundings. Most of the rooms also have a balcony or outside sitting area. There are two pools on the property (one adult only) and a terrace overlooking the ocean. Although there...

The hotel is a bit worn, but it is on the beach with great views from the restaurant. The hotel surroundings are quaint and nice, but the rooms are a bit sparse. Our shower dribbled adequately, but some more flow, and a cleaner shower floor, would have been nice. It has air-conditioning - a plus.

We had high hopes but were disappointed at the old, outdated rooms and the really dreadful bathroom. The room was small and austere with an old, faded, dingy bathroom. The room also has no safe!! You have to use a lockbox at the front desk. What an inconvenience if you need to access your valuables regularly. The hotel exterior is...

We've been staying here for more than 12 years. A lovely, unique property with a first-rate and caring staff who are always ready to help. The restaurant is beautiful and comfortable with a delicious menu and a wait staff who are always pleasant and attentive. It is our home away from home.

We were two couples, escaping a snowy winter in Vancouver, BC. I concur with what other reviewers have said, this property feels a little dated and it attracts and older clientele. That's fine with me! It was clean, quiet, and comfortable (no beds in Mexico are soft, but this one wasn't hard). We walked 1.4 k along the Zicatela Beach-facing...

This boutique hotel is wonderful. It is low-rise with gorgeous colonial architecture and two beautiful pools (one for families and one for adults only). There was NO loud radio blasting. The culture among the guests was refined friendly. We met many Canadians and Europeans. The weather is perfect (sunny with a breeze and about 80 degrees F every day). Guests...

I love the Hotel Santa Fe -- I've stayed there six times over the last 25 years. The location can't be beat on the border between the Playa Principal and Zicatela beach with unobstructed views of the oceans. They have one of, if not the, best restaurants in town and the service is always friendly (if occasionally slow). The rooms...

This hotel is located perfectly on one end of the famous Zicatela beach (and what an awesome beach). It's quite a large hotel - but doesn't feel that way because of all the twists & turns, multiple levels & pools. Feels like living in a tropical garden - very well maintained. The rooms - especially the bathrooms - are a...
