I needed a place near the beach at a reasonable rate and Santa Fe was pretty good.
The building is a bit older but then again so is most of Manly. I didn't want to pay for a higher standard and anyway I was out and about enjoying Manly and Sydney all day and it was a great place to sleep at night. Close to everything. It was a simple 1 bedroom unit, the bed was good, foxtel was a real bonus and the beach was only 40metres from the door. The staff were also really helpful and suggested good places to eat and things to see and do.
So all in all, the Santa Fe was a great place to stay.
