4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Frequent staycation can be good for the soul and mind. Sandia Resort continues to improve and accommodate the locals that can help stimulate the economy. The Resort is a beautiful venue and we enjoy the atmosphere. The restaurants are always a pleasure to visit. The smoking in the casino can be overwhelming but there are non smoking areas.

Don't have your bach party, birthday party or any sort of group outing here. I was part of a bachelorette party that was targeted and harassed by the security team. We rented cabanas at the pool and because we were in and around the pool all day (not in the shaded cabanas) security felt we were up in the room... More

We visited this facility for a couple's massage. The staff and facility were amazing. It was very clean and quiet. It was the best massage that I have ever had. We would highly recommend this space as well as the hotel and casino.

This casino was a lot of fun. It had everything you need in one beautiful location nestled near the Sandia mountains. Resort Hotel, restaurant dining, casual dining, events and a nice variety of gambling action. The casino style resort was very well kept, cleaner, non-smokey and exciting. We took our mom there for her birthday and ended up hanging out... More

You used to get a room Sun- Thurs for $49 if you had a Diamond Card. Now it's $209. Sandia appears not to be too much in customer service anymore like they used to. Food has gone downhill along with practically everything else. Too bad----

The room has burned out light bulbs, the bedding is old, snagged, and more reminiscent of a rent by the hour place on Central Ave. Will not stay here again because this is certainly not a $200.00/night room! The concert venue is beautiful but don't waste your money staying the night.

This resort and casino had fantastic restaurants and the rooms were wonderful. We had a great time in the Casino and we also took the free shuttle out and about the city. Very classy upscale place to stay.

We stay at Sandia Resort about once a month and have always found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. Check in at the front desk is usually fast and efficient. Sometimes you will get a surprise upgrade which is always amazing. We typically request a mountain view room, but even if it is not available, the city view... More

Stayed for 2 night at hotel. Asked for mountain view, checked early (by request) received neither. Hotel room had another persons clothing in it. Asked to speak to manager (Brandon). He never returned my phone call request. They ended up giving me a $20 credit. Overall, didn't expect the poor service.

Hi Jen, I just want to apologize for what seems like a less than perfect experience at the Resort. Unfortunately we can't always secure a room that meets all of the requests from our guests; the non-guarantee on rooms is something we're looking to change in the future and I' like to invite you back to the Resort to give...

I have been able to stay at the resort two times and there are no complaints. the team taking care of the golf course is extremely nice. the rooms have an enormous space. the only point that I would mentioned is the smoking smell of some rooms. but the place is great! great food, great casino and great customer service
