The resort is a beautiful place, however , their buffet is disgusting . We went for Sunday evening dinner because I had 2 complementary meals . Even for free this place is not worth visiting, much less the $16/person regular price.

The hotel sits an easy 15 minutes outside the touristy Santa Fe Plaza area. Travel in and out of down town Santa Fe was...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had an excellent experience. This was our last stop on our vacation and were really looking to wind down, and this was the best place to do so.

Nice room, good service, beautiful area, very nice pool and gym area. But the glass shower doors will explode on you if you're not careful! Ours shattered all over the bathroom just being closed wrong. Luckily we were not hurt and they let us in another room right away to shower.

The hotel is beautiful and the services are excellent. Location a bit far from Santa Fe but is a nice getaway. Casino is very tight but nice. We've stayed here several times and enjoyed the time spent.

“Ask for a room away from the Casino area, this is a 5 story hotel and stretches far away from the Casino.”
