My partner and I spent 4 nights based at Santa Fe whilst exploring Puerto. The best surprise for my vegetarian girlfriend was the restaurant (open to the public as well as guests). It serves stunning authentic food without the need for meat - and as a meat eater, I didn't miss it! We love exploring the local area around where we stay... yet one day, we had all 3 meals at the hotel!

At the tail end of the rainy season, the hotel also provided a peaceful place to relax whilst waiting for the skies to clear. Both pools are lovely and you can recline on the top deck staring out to sea for hours, with a cold beer in hand.

Rooms were good - A/C for those that need it, ceiling fan for a gentle draft. Ideally located if you want to turn left for the beach or right for the town.

Stayed: October 2017

My partner and I stayed at the Santa Fe for a week in August 2017 and we loved the place. It has a great layout and there are shaded spots everywhere to relax out of the heat of the Mexican sun. There are also plenty of spots to sunbathe with an amazing view of Playa Zicatela too, watching the huge waves smash the beach is mesmerising!

The restaurant is one of the highlights, a very extensive menu and every meal we had was tasty and of a generous portion. The restaurant also overlooks the beach and has plenty of space and ventilation so you dont get too hot, the waiters are also very attentive, efficient and polite.

There are two pools, one for screaming kids and one just for adults which is nice. All the rooms have air con AND a ceiling fan and so you can always retreat to your room if the heat gets too much, which it can in the middle of the day.

There are two pet Iguanas who chill out on a small tiled roof area near the pool and are quite happy to be photographed, they don't really move much and are quite safe.

The hotel also partners with the local tourist guides to offer pick up and drop off to all the local attractions, from baby turtle release to bio-luminescence tours.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: More expensive rooms are a little bit quieter, away from the kids pool, but noise is not a problem really.

Property has a beautiful, classic colonial design. Tropical impressive landscaping. Its location at the end of Zicatela provides additional privacy. Pools and restaurant also make it stand out from what I saw elsewhere in Puerto Escondido.

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 a feeling of privacy and quiet with a number of palm trees interspersed throughout the property.
The beach is directly across the street and the wave action can be loud, but not disturbing - it's the ocean doing what it does best.

Room Tip: Select a suite over a regular room. It's worth the cost differential.
