The only negative we had with out stay this time was the Bar Eatery. The hotel stay itself was excellent, we had a clean room, luxurious bed and wonderful view of the mountain range. We ate at the Bar Eatery and when we sat down in the booth which had just been wiped down I could smell a strong distinct... More

It's right off the freeway and easy in and out. Plenty of parking, beautiful spacious rooms, friendly staff, casino games are plenty to choose from, great service and great time. The gift shops are stocked with cool native American things.

I had a pedicure at the Green Reed Spa at the resort - bliss! The staff members were very welcoming and friendly; the spa itself feels spacious and wasn't crowded at all even right after Christmas. Décor is minimal and that adds to the feeling of serenity. You can go right from the steam room to a hot plunge pool... More

It was a great place to spend Christmas Day without worrying about the mess visiting family would make if at home. The resort has several restaurants, but the buffet is the best option if you are traveling with a large group, plenty of food choices to make everyone happy. For first time visitors signing up for their casino rewards card... More

Oh my gosh, pretty good food at a reasonable price and little wait, even on Christmas! The Brownie Sundae is the best I have ever had and they let you take your mixed drinks outdoors so you can enjoy the view of the Sandias.

We stopped at Sandia for a one night stay on our way to Colorado Springs for Thanksgiving. My only regret was that we only had one night to spend, due to time constraints to get to our destination for Turkey Day. I wish we could have stayed another night. Yes, it was that good! The resort was awesome, the rooms... More

This place has the perfect setting! Beautiful room and scenery all around. Nice golf course and tremendous meeting space. I highly recommend this place for a meeting. The only problem I have with the place is that it is very smoky near the elevators. It is not so bad in the morning but as the day goes on and more... More

We went here for my birthday and had so much fun. We gambled, ate at the restaurants, danced at the bar, and visited the spa. It was such a great place didn't even leave the entire weekend. I would highly recommend and was very impressed with every aspect of this Resort.

Very smoky. But the place it beautiful. My husband and I both received $25 free play for getting the players club loyalty cards. They do not do match play. It was my husband's birthday and he didn't receive any other gift for that. Which isn't a big deal to us but it's good to know also. The parking garage is... More

I've visited this casino few times during my business trips. Casinos staffs at player club are very rude. They act like player begging or nagging for promotions . They said " what else do you want ". I've been to several casinos, where they always offer you all the promotions to attract you coming to their place. Floor supervisor are... More
