When we found out we were in IV rather than III there was a little disappointment but how wrong we were. Santiago IV is absolutely lovely and suited my family perfectly. Just when short walk of about 5 minutes from the main hub of Las Americas and Santiago III, this complex is peaceful, clean and ideally situated for a young family. We had a garden room which as you would expect was on the ground floor with a neat and tidy garden space. The room was well equipped with all the basics. The kettle was for use on the hob rather than electric and there wasn't a microwave however these can be easily rented through reception if you want them. The room was very clean and our daughters cot was made up with fresh linen and very comfy as it had a mattress. Towels are provided and changed daily aloning with your daily room service . The garden was part tiles and part artificial grass with a patio table/chairs and awning which provided shade. Just outside the gate was the pool area so easy to nip back to the room if needed.
The complex has two pools and more than enough sunbeds although this might not be the case in high season. There is one heated pool which despite the warm weather was very pleasant and much better for us as the main pool was too cold for our little girl. Unfortunately you can't have lilo's or balls etc. In this pool so you would need to use the "fun" pool for more raucous play. The lifeguard on duty is very keen and will speak to people who he feels are breaking any rules. While some may think that seems unfair it does mean there is calmer pool for the very young, people wanting a relaxing swim or those who just want some peace around the pool. The one negative of the pool area was the lack of shady places to sit and parosols only offer a little cover. Security also do spot checks as keep your room key or guest card with you.
You can use the bigger pool with water park in Santiago III if you want however we found it much busier and noisier. Our daughter at 18 months was also too to young to go on any of the slides so we stopped by our own pool.
The location is lovely. There are a selection of bars right outside the complex however a short few minutes walk in any direction will take you into the busier and cheaper restaurants and bars. The beach front is also on the doorstep as guests can use an entrance round the back which leads straight out to the beach. Famous Veroicas Strip is a fair walk but pleasant with many bars to stop at on the way.
If we were to visit this area again then we would stay here, it made our holiday even more enjoyable.
