I stayed here for a conference and was pleasantly surprised as to the accommodations and equally surprised by the excellent customer service. I stayed on the fifth floor in a king room overlooking the city; the view was sparkling with lights and serene when snow was falling. The halls were rather noisy during the day due to the number of... More

We had visited the casino a few times, but never stayed there before this trip. We arrived before check in time, but the receptionist welcomed us and was able to get us checked in. We requested a high floor with a mountain view and received both. We also received a corner room that was a little larger than the other... More

We stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting relatives in Rio Rancho. We were made to feel at home by all staff throughout the visit. Concierge arranged car hire and even dropped us off to collect the car! Elmer in the restaurant was one of the best waiters we've ever experienced. All in all enjoyed all aspects of the resort. We'd... More

The rooms are nice but certainly not worth what you lose in the casino. The slots are so tight since the construction started and now that it is finished they are just as tight as ever. Better bet for the money is to go somewhere else regardless of what they advertise.

Once a year I go visit and play at the casino. My last visit was business related and was able to eat at the top in the Ben Sur restaurant. Bring your wallet and food pallet. I believe this casino has the best decor in the area.

We had an amazing time at Sandia! We were welcomed by their quality free valet and bell hop service and whisked away to our beautiful suite! The room was large, comfortable and extremely good value for money. When signing up for the casino we were given $25 free play each! The casino comes equipped with its own bar and dance... More

I go all of the time to the casino at Sandia but this was my first trip to stay at the actual resort. Man, I was not expecting how nice these rooms were. I had a suite based on my play and these suites are HUGE! Nice and clean and very recommended. I would recommend this place anytime you are... More

The rooms are luxurious, and quiet. The food at the fine dining is excellent. I forgot what the name of the restaurant is. We went there for our anniversary. The machines started paying after 6:00 p.m. We went on a senior day. I go for the get-a-way-quiet and the restaurant experience and my husband goes for the gambling. We will... More

I stayed here for one night, to be closer to the airport after a week in Santa Fe. Looks impressive as you drive up, and that continues through the lobby and casino, all the way to the room. I asked for an upgrade at check in, (which I always do) and was given one of the largest hotel rooms I... More

We visited the casino on our last day in Albuquerque. When we first registered, they gave each of us a generous stipend to play either machines or table games, t-shirts, and a deck of cards. We enjoyed our time at the casino. Unfortunately, our experience at the buffet was most disappointing. The variety was very limited. The quality of the... More
