“We Will Be Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

This place is absolutely fantastic. The first impression we had, was made at the front desk when we checked in and found that the people working actually like their jobs. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and pleasant to deal with.

We got to our room, immediately went out to hop into the spa which was not only hot, but very clean and relaxing. The pool was in the same shape. This is a place that stays on top of their game.

The rooms were very clean along with the plates, silverware, dishwasher, microwave, stove top and fridge. The bathroom looked as though it was just built. Just incredibly clean and spacious. We were all just amazed with this place. The gym has an eliptical, a multi station machine, a flat bench and a rack of dumbbells....a place we all used daily.

We were two mins from a major grocery store, where we stocked up on food for our trip. One night we cooked steaks on the grill out on the patio and it looked as though it at had never been used. We walked 5 blocks to the plaza one morning for a day of shopping and avoided the headache of looking for a parking place. The walk was easy and very pleasant.

I could go on and on with this review, but suffice to stay, this is a GREAT place to stay, and the best so far for us. My wife and I traveled with our two girls and our room was large enough to accommodate the four of us with no problem.

i love this place. It has a pool, barbeques, and a large outdoor area with sun loungers. Each suite has 2 rooms, 2 tv's, 2 queen beds and a sofa bed. While we were there my son and grandaughter stayed for a few days and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The location is away from the plaza but the mini bus service is excellent. There is a laundry room and board games can be freely borrowed from the lobby.

We were first attracted to this property by it's location and pricing. Wen we arrived, the staff was exceedingly helpful. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and nicely updated. We stayed at this property with our 3 children and there was plenty of room. The laundry facility were clean and the kids enjoyed playing pool in the main office area. We would definitely stay here again while visiting Santa Fe!

We stayed a week at the Villas and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was clean, the kitchenette was nicely appointed, and the bed very comfortable. We were close to a grocery store so we made many meals in the condo, particularly breakfast. The weather was abnormally cold, -16 degrees so one day we stayed in watched movies and made a big pot of chili. One of the nicest amenities is the shuttle service until 10 at night. They will take you anywhere within a 3 mile radius which is great because it's so close to all of the museums, restaurants, shopping and the plaza. Another great thing is the laundry facilities, it was nice being able to wash clothes and not have to being home laundry. The service was outstanding from the housekeeping staff to the front desk. We would definitely stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villas de Santa Fe. It was in a great location - within easy walking distance of the Alberstons Supermarket, Sunflower Farmer's Market and Old Town. The suite was really gresat with a decent kitchenette and a super comfortable bed. The front desk staff were really helpful.

Booked through our Diamond Resort points this 1 bedroom apartment was a little smaller than others we had tried before, however, having said that it was newly renovated and overall really nice.

Our only issue was the lack of full kitchen facilities, as this apartment only had a kitchenette area, rather than a full kitchen, therefore no stove or washer/dryer facilities.

With a cramped living/dining/kitchenette area, it was the smallest American unit we had stayed in that was not a lock-off unit, but made the most of it as the bedroom area was a good size and bathroom very roomy. There were also 2 flat screen TV's for such a small unit - one in the living area and 1 in the bedroom - and the aircon was very good too.

Parking here is tight and we found it difficult to find a space when we returned in the evening.

Overall the resort is smart, clean and friendly, with laundry facilities off the main reception area, free coffee/drinks in reception and a games room with a pool table.

We would return, but may consider a larger unit next time if we decide to stay for more than a few days. This is a great base to visit the Albuqueruqe Balloon Fiesta, if you are happy with the 50-60 minute drive - which we were and had an amazing time at the Fiesta.

We enjoyed our stay at Villas de Santa Fe. It's conveniently located and has all the amenities that made for a comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, we walked the three blocks to the Sunflower Farmers Market and purchased groceries for breakfasts in our suite. We were in the building next to the reception and it was very quiet. We used the shuttle service a couple of times. We obtained a good rate on Hotwire, but we were told the regular rate is over $200/night for a 1 bedroom suite. We would stay there again if we could get a good rate.
