First let me say that I like this hotel and casino, but I do think that they have too many rules. The rooms are very comfortable and roomy, and the bathroom is roomy too with a tub and separate shower. Buffet is always crowded but I don't think its that good, but they offer a lot of specials for seniors... More

The bathrooms are spacious, seperate shower and bath, toilet not right next to them. The rooms are good size. Their internet connection is sometimes very slow. Room service and housekeeping can sometimes be a problem. Bien Shur stake and lobster was not as good as I thought it would be. The dinner plus glass of wine cost me about a... More

Courteous and friendly staff. Doesn't make any difference if the rooms are complimentary or you have paid for them. The staff is great. Rooms are beautiful, clean and food at hotel restaurants are wonderful. The view of the mountains is breathtaking. Love this place.

My husband and I reserved a deluxe king room but when we checked in we were given a king suite as a free upgrade without requesting. Beautiful and spacious room with 2 bathrooms. The shower was so nice and the bed so comfortable. Nice view of the mountains and the pool. Room number was 717. Will definitely come and stay... More

Arriving at the Resort - Sandia Resort and Casino is like stepping into a little bit of paradise. This is not your run of the mill resorts or casino, but first class all the way. I have said time and time again, you would really feel comfortable walking bare foot any where in this resort...it is so clean and beautiful... More

From the check-in staff to the waitresses in the lounges, everything was pleasant during our stay here (May 2014). One tip: Always have your ID on you if you intend to buy alcohol, regardless of your age. The room was clean and in good repair. Good food at the restaurants. Some of the drinks at the bar were not "great"... More

Because our plane was grounded and we had two unexpected days to stay in Albuquereque, we wanted a hotel venue a little nicer atmosphere than an airport hotel. The resort shuttle picked us up promptly, and we checked into this beautiful resort at the foot of the Sandia Mountains. We aren't golfers, but other guests told us the course was... More

Room and service was excellent. I enjoyed the buffet. The tub was a really nice tub, but was narrow. I was on the seventh floor and had some trouble figuring out how to turn on the air but was finally able to figure out.

I stop by this casino every time I fly into Albuquerque and drive to Santa Fe. It is very nice - super clean, nice non-smoking areas and a beautiful view of the Sandia mountains from the back of the casino. Every time I have visited there have been LOTS of slots available, a ton of penny slots and a few... More
