We did not try to the hotel but we ate dinner at the restaurant. Food was ordinary and it was expensive by provincial standards. The decor was pretty chic though. We ate at a low-table where we sat cross-legged.

As what other reviewers previously said, this is not a beach-front property. But it has its advantages, like it being conveniently situated near the market, other restaurants and bars, and churches. More so, the beach front hotels are more expensive, especially during the peak season, and we decided to spend more of our travel money on exploring the whole of... More

I stayed for several weeks early March, 2014. Seems to be running at 100% since the typhoon. Very reasonable prices, pretty good food though I suggest testing out some of the surrounding resturants, and quite clean. Seemed to be a solid place to visit.

Last time we were in Santa Fe CouCou had just opened and it would have been very unfair to do a review at that time...NOW 2 years on Cou Cou Restaurant is efficient serving up pretty reasonable food across the board. The restaurant is well set up..big tables for groups..has a good atmosphere to it. The downside is the staff..generally... More

We had lunch here one day. Fine service, good choice, simple food, not great, but not bad either. We ordered some calamari, spring rolls and sandwiches / burgers. Overall good, but a little greasy. Burger bun was very soggy when offered (from the burger and all the juices), so could be improved here and there. Comfortable seating. Place looked nice,... More

Enjoyed our stay at coucou bar hotel. sta. fe has the best beaches, loved our morning and afternoon alks on the beach. Internet is weak in the rooms have to go into the restaurant. Prices in the restaurant are high but it seems nearly all the resturants are European owned and they are all expensive.

Absolutely value for money! Rooms were big enough and really was well kept. Location was great since it was near anything important, like the market place, grocery, drug stores and of course the night fun. i sure would stay here again when i return back to the island, back to Sta. Fe..... See you there!!!
