We were staying in town for JT concert and when we arrived at 6 p told that the type of room I booked 3 months before was not available. When I complained the clerk literally asked me "do u want it or not!" No apology no calm explanation just a completely rude unprofessional response. Then she proceeded to give us... More

Dear Mr. Broncosman, Thank you very much for the very candid response regarding your first stay at Sandia Resort & Casino! I truly apologize for the unprofessional behavior of our Front Desk staff. Yes we were sold out and do not guarantee room types, but we definitely could have handled the situation with much more tact and understanding. I do... More

We were recently at the Sandia for the second time. The resort and golf course are beautiful! Everyone associated with the establishment is super friendly. Best $2.00 cheeseburger you will find in the casino. Fantastic seafood buffet! Pool area, hot tub, spa. All first class. We will make it a annual trip.

Recently took a group of 16 golfers for a trip to New Mexico and organized it through the Sandia reservations desk. Britni Lujan and her entire team helped make our trip extremely enjoyable. The food was great, the rates were very fair and the ease of our group to play golf and get around made the trip a great success.... More

My husband had a two-day seminar so we decided to book at the resort. 1.) we dined at both the buffet (breakfast) and the restaurant for dinner. Food was ok, service good but a little overpriced. 2.) they did accommodate an early check in (12 noon) 3.) didn't realize you aren't allowed to leave your kids alone in the room,... More

My review is a few months late since I've been traveling quite a bit, but I always thoroughly enjoy my stay at Sandia when I am in Albuquerque. The staff is knowledgable, happy, helpful, the room are extraordinarily clean and nicely luxurious and comfy and the bathrooms are wonderfully large with a walk-in shower and soft towels. Great views from... More

First let me say that I like this hotel and casino, but I do think that they have too many rules. The rooms are very comfortable and roomy, and the bathroom is roomy too with a tub and separate shower. Buffet is always crowded but I don't think its that good, but they offer a lot of specials for seniors... More

Courteous and friendly staff. Doesn't make any difference if the rooms are complimentary or you have paid for them. The staff is great. Rooms are beautiful, clean and food at hotel restaurants are wonderful. The view of the mountains is breathtaking. Love this place.
