This review is solely about the nice experiences my wife and I had on relatively brief visits to the gorgeous public spaces on the ground floor of this large resort. On Tuesday, 14 Jun 2016, on our way to lunch at nearby Gabriel's, we stopped here for a break in late morning after driving down from Taos. We were so... More

We stayed at the Hilton Buffalo Thunder since it had a casino & golf, plus the rate was very reasonable. Our room, a Jr Suite, was very spacious and bathroom was excellent. Shower plus separate bathtub with plenty of room. Granite countertops. Bed very comfortable. It was a hike to get to lobby and casino however. We only had breakfast... More

Nice romantic getaway. Suite was awesome and the digital key is the greatest idea Hilton has come up with in years. Checked in online Hilton sent the digital key to my app, I never had to check in at the front desk.

I was here last weekend for a wedding I was in. I had my room booked for two nights since it didn't make sense for me to commute back and forth to Albuquerque. The rooms are actually pretty nice. Typical Southwest décor that most hotels in New Mexico tend to lean toward. Our room had a balcony as well which... More

This resort is very pet friendly and elegant. It has something for everyone. We love it! The bar and casino area are excellent. The golf course is beautiful. The people are wonderful. There is an excellent courtyard for dog walking.

Everything was excellent. Upon check-in was sent a text to see what was needed to make my stay a 10 and all requests were met. Enjoyed the pool, spa (free to HH members), casino and mostly the margarita's. Nice quiet locale outside of fabulous Santa Fe!

Check in was a long process. Original room assigned was unacceptable. It was changed. We are Hilton Honors guests, however you would never know it from the check in staff. Hotel was not full and our request for an upgrade, which we would pay for was not honored. Staff was supposed to text us when our room was ready but... More

The resort is luxurious and well kept, the food is delicious and the location is breathtaking. Everything is wonderful except for the casino. My husband and I have gone there at least once a year since it was built and have never won anything to speak of in the casino. I know that it is called "gambling" for a reason... More
