Had a very relaxing time. Ate some very good meals in their restaurants and spend a little time gambling. Went to Santa Fe and window shopped and saw a few museums. Returned for a very delicious nightcap and had a wonderful nights sleep. Breakfast at the iguana restaurant was wonderful.

Although this hotel is about 30 minutes from Santa Fe, they do run a shuttle for those wanting to go into Old Town and perhaps have a drink without worrying about driving. Hotel is popular with golfers and gamblers. They sometimes have shows. The buffet was good value and the drinks prices weren't too bad.

This hotel/casino offers excellent value for the amenities provided. A little out of the way for Santa Fe, but well worth the 20 minute drive. We would definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Beautiful hotel and the service is 2nd to none. Second honeymoon was fantastic! Thank you. Restaurants we tried were all great. Buffet is great value. The Café is wonderful. Deli in Casino had wonderful breakfast items. Rooms were spotless. Staff very helpful and thoughtful. We can't wait to return to this site. We had a King Suite and well worth... More

I stayed at Buffalo Thunder Resort last week and it was such a splendid experience. I was blown away by the inviting and helpful staff. They truly made my stay delightful. From the moment we arrived Allayne from the front desk, was so quick and accommodating. Jionni the concierge, was extremely experienced and answered every question we had. He went... More

Smoke signals..... And that's not good. We don't smoke so, I guess it's my fault for going there, but I thought it would be better, if it were a Hilton property. There is a non-smoking area, but by the time you walk through the smoke, you smell like a pack of unfiltered cigarettes. Not my kind of place! I would... More

Located a short drive out of Sante Fe, so that means quite! Beautiful hotel throughout. Very quite so buffet was not open. Room was peaceful, as well as the spa rest area, and pool. Casino was clean and paid off well also. Only gave cleanliness a four star, because towels were laying around in pool area. That is a no-no... More

We were told about this hotel/casino by a local resident who suggested that it would be a great centralized place to stay and explore northern New Mexico. They were correct. We had a very nice room with a view of the mountains over the golf course. Also, they had many food options along with the casino, if you are interested.... More

Stayed here on a family vacation. The rooms were large, beautifully decorated and the beds were a dream. The suite was large and felt more like a private residence than a hotel. The staff was courteous and extremely friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and the complimentary dinner was better than most restaurants! The courtyard and trails were...

This was our 4th visit. We enjoy the Jr. suite room layout. Great Guacamole in the Iguana Café! It is made to your order, so fresh and lots of chips! Roomy rooms and very clean. Many things to do aside from the Casino gambling. Staff is always helpful and friendly. We will go again. Also they have great room package... More
