I stayed at the Hacienda Nicholas over Thanksgiving week with a few friends for my birthday. It was hands down the nicest place I have ever stayed for overall experience. We felt like we were staying with family, fed a fabulous hot breakfast every morning, tea, coffee and homemade goodies every afternoon and had full use of the sitting rooms in either the Madeline Inn or the Hacienda. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable, giving us plenty of directions, advice on where to eat, the best places to visit...and even fixing an early breakfast for us on our last day. We really enjoyed Greg, our cowboy, artist, tour guide, chef , innkeeper who made sure the coffee was ready early and the fire was stoked at 0700. And the Absolute Nirvana Spa...what a treat! My facial with Janice was phenomenal! It was so much more than a facial being that she is an acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine as well. My lulur treatment with Lauren was pure bliss. I glowed the rest of the week! Loved every minute of my stay and will highly recommend to anyone who asks. We will not bother to stay anywhere else when visiting Santa Fe again.
