“Convenient to downtown Santa Fe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is an OK property, not one of the more outstanding Diamond Resort properties. The upside is it is within walking distance to downtown, but if you don't want to walk, there is a courtesy van to take you there. The downside is the 1 BR suites only have a stovetop and the washer and dryers (which are not free) are in the reception building. Even though we were assured we had a top floor unit, we ended up on the 2nd floor which is really 1 1/2 floors up from the parking lot. If we wanted to sit out on the balcony, we had cars pulling in right up to the unit.

We regret if the apartment allocation was not to your satisfaction and we would like to assure you that we always try and fulfil all our gusts’ requests, however to our equal disappointment, due to the availability limitations this is just not always possible. We regret if this has caused you any inconvenience, yet we hope that you had an otherwise pleasant stay and that you might consider us for your future bookings!

This is run by our time share company, and we've stayed there many times. It's within walking distance of the plaza. The swimming pool with hot tub is nice in warm weather. The staff is accomodating. The rooms are functional and pleasing. We enjoy the place, but it is not on the high end of the scale. For us, it's a bargain since our schdule is flexible and we get in for half the points. My only real knock is the lack of adequate parking.

My husband and I just got back from a long weekend to Santa Fe, NM (our first, but probably not our last). The Villas de Santa Fe was perfect for our needs. We stayed in Rom 2312 (Bldg 2, 3rd floor). Had a view of the hot tub and patio area with the 2 gas grills. The kitchen only has 2 stove top burners and no stove, but we were able to make breakfast and one dinner in the condo About 5-6 blocks from the plaza and an Albertson's grocery store less than 1 mile. They have a free shuttle which we took to the farmers market on Saturday. Then you just call them to pick you up. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here the next time you are in Santa Fe

Room Tip: See above. We were in Building 2, 3rd floor. Pretty quiet.

For Springbreak, we booked 4 nights at this place: the rooms were very clean and pleasant; commodities more than decent for the price. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt safe walking around. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Service when required was fast.

We got a great deal through a third party online. Villas de Santa Fe is literally a 5 minute walk to the plaza, which is very convenient, and it has free parking. Nice kitchen but we only stayed one night and didn't get any use out of it. Nice and spacious suites, and 2 huge hot tubs on site (not in the room). Only problem we had was that both tv's in the room did not have the option for closed captions, and a call to the front desk did not prove helpful in obtaining them.

I stayed at this property for eleven (11) nights in late January and early February and was delighted with the one bedroom (King) accommodation. The suite was clean and quiet with a well appointed kitchen, two flat screen TVs (one with a DVD player) , and even a sofa bed.
I especially liked the exercise room in the main guest building and the convenient laundry
"down the hall". Staff were friendly, informative, and helpful (free local shuttle) with the exception of one young woman at the front desk who was prone to irritability. The location of
this property (as some have noted) is excellent for those who wish to walk the five or fewer
blocks to the downtown/Plaza area and leave the vehicle parked in the secure villas lots.
There are also two internet accessible computers in the main building for guest use.
Making this an even sweeter experience for a solo traveller like me, the condo cost during this off season time was an amazing value through hotwire.com . Highly recommend this property for solo and couples - especially for fantastic off season rates.

Room Tip: Top floors seem quietest.
