We are Diamond Resort time-share owners, but we were less than enthused by our stay at the Villas. Our first impression was that there was very little land and property for this resort and it seemed to be in the middle of downtown in a lower class neighborhood. The parking lots have the narrowest parkling spaces we've ever seen and not a whole lot of them. We easily found the elevator, but found it to be ghetto-style and possibly the last thing to be renovated, if it's even in the plans. Dark and dank! Upon entering our 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite, we found a dirty sock, a bobby pin and some used soap pieces on the floor. My daughter instantly noticed the "art"work on the walls were the same as the ones our Arby's restaurant has in Iowa. Not impressed with Santa Fe being so well-known for its artistry. Our dining room table was dressed with plastic blue placemats and we had no oven, but I should've known that as apparently no ovens are found here at the Villas. We usually like to eat in a few nights, but it's more difficult w/o an oven. The recliner was broken and would not go into an upright position without manual help on the footrest. My husband was disappointed in the fact that the BlueRay player and high-def TV had only a cheap analog cable hooking it together. On the other hand, we had 3 full-sized flat-screened TVs in the suite. The pool was the tiniest we've ever seen anywhere and the only way to get to it was to walk by the reservations desk. Our condiment basket in the kitchen included 2 packets of coffee (one decaf and one regular), but we were charged $1 for each extra packet. On the bright side, we had a quiet stay and there were NO sales reps to pursue us with sales promotions. Santa Fe is a lovely, quaint city with beautiful scenery for miles around. If we were to go back, I'd check out other places to stay.
