Buffalo Thunder Resort is about 15 minutes north of Santa Fe in a beautiful setting. My wife and I like to go here for a quick getaway and coming here is like traveling to much further destinations without the long trip.
The setting is beautiful with some rooms overlooking the pool area and some rooms looking out toward the mountains of Santa Fe or Los Alamos. The hotel, run by Hilton, is everything that you would expect it to be; clean, well run, and nicely decorated.
The buffet is very good and was well patronized on the Sunday night we were there. The casino is nice, even though it is on the small size. We won enough money to pay for dinner!
In the past we have visited in the winter and the indoor pool is amazing. Highly recommended.
My only complaint would be the charge for internet. This is obscene and a practice that needs to stop. The only way I can visit nice places like this is having the ability to work and take care of business when I need to. Being penalized to access the internet is no longer acceptable. Would you charge me to use the TV? What about the toilet?
The other issue is calling the hotel, which I did to see if I could check in early. After going through the various options to reach reservations or the front desk, I gave up when being put on hold for several minutes. I called back and just hit "0" and was connected to the front desk right away. Keep this in mind and bypass the phone options.
I definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the area. I've not patronized the spa or golf course, but they look great also.
