One of the most gorgeous and beautiful casinos in USA. If this casino was in Las Vegas it would be a five star. The hotel is luxurious inside and outside. The restaurant has all one needs from many choices. The view of the Sandia Mountains on one side and the view of downtown Albuquerque on the other side gives you... More

We had a good business trip to Sandia. The room was very nice and enjoyable, and the staff was friendly. We really enjoyed the Seafood Buffet, and the other food was good. The pool was very regulated and almost guarded with different polices, which made it a little tough to enjoy not know if you had the correct requirements on... More

From the time we drove up to the valet parking an attendant named Anthony showed the utmost pleasantness grace and care for me and my elderly mother and aunt. If you had a ten to rate him I would give him that. Overall our first time experience at the hotel was great. I have nothing but great things to say... More

We have stayed at the Sandia Resort/Casino several times over the past few years. Each visit is better than the last. Upon arrival we asked for a motorized scooter to have for my husband who is handicapped and expected to pay for the use but found that it was complimentary while we stayed at the resort. We were also greeted... More

When we arrived, we took advantage of the complimentary valet parking. They provide you a scanable ticket when you drop off your vehicle. When you're ready to be picked up, there is a kiosk outside the front doors that allows you to scan your ticket and have them bring your car without having to ask anyone. We visited twice during...

I used to love going to this casino and particularly enjoyed their cheeseburgers so it saddens me to have to write this review. I ordered five cheeseburgers to go for lunch with my young godsons. While I was eating my cheeseburger I bit into something that cracked a healthy tooth completely in half. It was quite painful. My godsons were... More

We have been visiting this resort ever since the Fiery Food Show moved here from the convention Center downtown. Every year it finds another way to disappoint. It was amazing and the service was great. Now, slot machines are where the excellent gift shop used to reside, the "gift shop" is a small kiosk tucked back in the corner by... More

Being an East Coaster, we, too, have Indian Casinos. Sandia is similar to Foxwoods. Busy, spacious, lots of slots, good live music venue and adequate food service. Oh and one more: lots of smoke. It does not have the ambiance of the Mohegan Sun, where premium stores, a grand hotel and signature restaurants raise the level of value. Sandia was... More

I had a great time overall at the Sandia Resort and Casino last month while there for an annual Conference of Legal Support Professionals. The Hotel offered many activities in addition to the Casino, such as a SPA, great pool and Jacuzzi, and an onsite full (dare I say World-class Golf Course, plus great entertainment (Music and Dancing).

I was hesitant to book a room here after reading about how smoky it was. The only place I smelled smoke was in the casino, not in the lobby, restaurants or room. The surroundings are breath-taking and the rooms are spacious and inviting. I love the plantation shutters to keep the light out and the fact they slide open to... More
