I use Santillana with my native speaker class but only as a supplement for reading.  I like it but not as a textbook.  I asked for a teacher edition, was willing to pay for it and spoke to the rep aouut it and he never delivered.

I have been using Santillana since August. They lack a digital test generator. Writing test and exams is very time consuming!! It is surprising they do not have this tool!
I was in the selection committee and voted for Vista's Descubre and Temas for AP Spanish. I had used them in San Antonio and there were EXCELLENT!
Santillana has many mistakes. The English parts sometimes is not grammatically correct. I grew up with Santillana and they have excellent books for Spanish speaking countries but I believe they lack when it comes to books for Spanish learners.

Vista Higher Learning has an awesome digital resource!
