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

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...

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!
