The Santiago sounds great on TA and because of all the glowing reviews it receives on here I thought i would give it a try. Well, it is a nice place, but beware of snake oil salesmen. Close to town? here is my question, is Hoboken NJ close to NYC - yes but not necessarily walking distance. Always crowded -...

I've been to Palm Springs many times and each time I try to find a place that just feels right - a place that is central to downtown Palm Springs, has a great pool, and clean, comfortable rooms. I've stayed at the Parker, Riviera, Saguaro...the list goes on but each time I keep looking for a place the encompasses all...

This was my first time at a resort of this type, and it was wonderful. Peaceful, clean, and beautiful. Staff was through and friendly. Plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas even when it was full. Friendly guests. Breakfast and lunch is a great amenity to allow maximum time at the pool. Fridge in the room is also nice. My companion...

From the spacious suite to the friendly staff always making sure you have everything you need, I really felt at home. Bob, Grant, and Josh were all to be commended. I loved the Cantina with the snacks, beverages, and condiments available 24/7. I can be a night owl and this was a welcome treat when I had a craving. The...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Santiago. The renovation is excellent. Tasteful and appropriate choices throughout. The mature landscaping is impeccable. Every corner of the grounds has been carefully designed and maintained and the views are spectacular. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pool and the hot tub (both of which were cleaned daily) and always a supply...

I stayed at the Santiago last week. It was one of the cleanest resorts of its kind that I have stayed in. The room was perfect, the pool area was extremely well taken care of and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. The amenities were very nice too with both breakfast and lunch served and all included. It was also a...

My partner and I stayed here for the first time and loved it! The room was nicely remodeled, and the furnishings updated- we loved our poolside room.

The Santiago resort is clean, rooms are spacious and the pool is great. In fact all facilities are fine. Our only interaction with staff or management however was a phone call on arrival as there were no staff on duty and no instructions or keys left; a polite good morning from Bob at breakfast with a reminder to order lunch...

I'd like to firstly address the housekeeping. We offer full service, each day for every room. We also offer guests the alternative option of fresh towels and water placed outside the door. Many of our guests choose this option to keep their room undisturbed. This option is selected by hanging a sign outside the door. We try to be friendly...

I really enjoyed my stay at the santiago, the staff was great, very relaxing poolside and enjoyed the box lunches they provided each day. Only two complaints. 1) we asked when we booked our room for something very quiet because my husband is very sensitive to noise at night. Sounded like a heard of elephants above our room.

The property and rooms had just been renovated when I stayed over my birthday in June, 2015. The room was excellent as were the grounds, pool and common areas. The staff is awesome, very friendly and helpful at all times. I've stayed here in the past and I see no reason to change!
