Stayed here for a staycation! Great hotel, always a charmer! The rooms are very nice and clean. Spacious and much attention is paid to detail. Lots of dining options and things to do within the hotel premises. Staff is friendly and helpful. Great night club and live music at the restaurant upstairs. They also have a free shuttle if you...

Awesome desk staff,The Council Room restaurant and bar cool place to hang then go chill by the the pool in the summer. Being a local,I have spent a lot(too much) time here through the years. Started using it as as an in town getaway,and now they're expanding but.....the rates have jumped significantly. So it'll be awhile before I stay overnight,... More

We stay here when traveling south from northern Colorado. Rooms are large and comfortable-bathrooms are especially nice with excellent lighting. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. We like the casino although there is no alcohol allowed on the casino floor. We have not eaten in the top floor restaurant bet find the others mediocre at best. A waitress responded... More

Sandia Casino is one of the larger casinos in New Mexico. We stayed here on November 1, 2014, for an overnight getaway. I booked the room with my promotional rate; however, the normal price would have been between $200-$300 for one night. As a reminder to our out of state readers, the New Mexico gaming compact prohibits the consumption of... More

The spa was perfect. Exactly what you'd expect from a high-end spa! The common areas were relaxing and ample. The outdoor pool was steps away. My friend and I had a massage then went and spent a couple hours by the pool then went back and had facials. It was a relaxing and perfect day!

Beautiful large rooms. Had a great time. Nice outside pool. However wish they had an indoor pool with the mild tempatures in Albuquerque most of the year you cant really use this amenity. I used the spa which was fabulous. Overall great resort and beautiful views of the Sandia Mountains. Staff is great!

Stayed 2 nights at the resort. Hotel is really nice and they are always adding on and improving. Everyone from front desk, bellmen, housekeeping and restaurant personnel are friendly and welcoming. We had a room with the mountain and golf course view and it is spectacular. Not a large option for dining, but range from quick and budget friendly to... More

Loved staying at Sandia, fabulous spacious suite, wonderful staff, excellent food & the great casino! We only stayed for 1 night on our way back from Branson, Mo.to Los Angeles, hated to leave!! Want to go back there & spend more time. If you're into golf, the golf course is magnificent!! Pool is lovely & the grounds really beautiful.

Always enjoy staying at Sandia. Rooms are always clean and fresh. I believe the 5th floor is designated for smokers. Any other floor does not have a smoking smell. The Council Room has delicious food - we've had their ribs, burgers, and grilled chicken breast sandwiches. The casino area has a non-smoking area with plenty of slot machines, tables and... More
