A group of us plus one dog spent three nights here over Labor Day weekend. There was a special where the third night was free with a two-night stay, plus breakfast credit at the hotel cafe each day, which was great since this is several notches higher than the places where I generally tend to stay. The resort is tucked away and tranquil, with great views of the Sandia Mountains, especially late in the afternoon when the huge outdoor terrace is shaded and you can sit out there and have a drink.
This is a terrific place to get up early and go for a run or ride the hotel bikes along the trails in the morning, have breakfast outside on the patio of the cafe, and then spend the day lounging poolside. There were a lot of families with small children here, but there is a walled circular pool in the middle of the resort with signs designating this pool area as a quiet zone. While we were there families tended to stay at the other pools where there was a water slide and an outdoor dining area and more room to spread out. Generally if people with noisy small children didn't get that the circular pool was a quiet area, one of the other guests would eventually ask them nicely to pipe down, and they would comply.
One of our rooms had a mountain view; the room I stayed in faced out onto a slope that led to the golf course. But who needs a view from the room when you're outdoors all day? The room did have a private patio with table and chairs, and you could sit out there and enjoy mostly silence--the golfers never whizzed by in their carts until later in the morning. The room itself was very nice, and the beds super-comfortable. The breakfast in the cafe is excellent, especially the blue corn griddle cakes. Don't miss the bread they bake in the outdoor ovens mid-morning - slather it with the various flavored butters, especially the cinnamon butter.
All aspects of service at the resort are excellent, at every level and in every department. The only thing that marred our stay was that throughout the weekend it seemed like someone was smoking near the air intake, because the smell would come through our room vents, and sometimes it was strong. We mentioned this at checkout, and the desk clerk was apologetic and even knocked a little off our bill. He didn't have to do that, we had only suggested that maybe they post no smoking signs near the air intakes if that was the cause, but we appreciated the gesture. I would happily stay here again for another weekend getaway.
