“Lovely, peaceful and friendly”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This was my 3rd stay at Tamaya, in association with a conference my husband attends. I am one lucky wife to get to tag along here! The staff is super friendly and helpful; the food is absolutely fabulous -- how they manage to feed 400+ conference attendees and guests delicious, warm food is a talent other hotels should learn! Although their fine-dining restaurant, Corn Maiden, was closed during this stay, we had eaten there previously and loved it. The concierge recommended a nearby restaurant (for our last night), Prairie Star, and it was excellent. The resort has a great 2+ mile walking trail -- made me feel a little less guilty about the great food! The resort is perfectly located too -- 20 minutes from Albuquerque, 40 minutes from Santa Fe. I hope this is one conference my husband keeps attending!

I must say this will be a pleasure to review; I enjoyed our stay at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya from beginning to end. Our check in attendant was very informative and helpful about the variety of activities and options available.

We were lucky to get a room viewing Mount Sandia - it costs a bit more but if possible I would recommend it as the view are breathtaking and sitting at the balcony on a warm day is amazing.

Also, the staff at the restaurants and bar are great - really...all of them very warm!

The rooms are pretty standard in set up. The TV remote was a pain with hard unresponsive buttons.

Breakfast - They have a brilliant spread with fresh cut and whole fruit, pancakes, eggs made to order, sausages, bacon, toast croissants, cheese, salmon, crackers et al. I would go for the buffet breakfast if your hungry.

Lunch/Dinner menu is ok but kind of pricey - portions are huge so order accordingly.

The resort has a whirl pool with deliciously warm water and two pools. One is closed for summer, well it wasnt open when we were there and they are usually heated. They have bikes and a walking trail/track.

They also have a spa - with a jacuzzi and sauna complimentary for guests. I found the spa treatments very pricey though.

Overall we felt very pampered here - the staff seem well trained in ensuring guests take it easy and enjoy the wonderful scenery in NM.

It is a 30 min car ride from Alburquque airport - so if you plan to do some sight seeing factor transport.

We didnt really venture out to see the local town and the nearby casino - check other reviews for that.

One irritating thing is how long the hotel took to eventually charge my account for the bill - almost a week or more to finally debit my account

I will echo the glowing reviews: This is a first rate resort on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the Sandia mountains. It has a golf course, spa, horseback riding, bike trails, pools with water slide (nicely enclosed in a adobe-like structure), restaurants, fire pits (with storytellers and smores program). Even a place for hot-air ballooning.

The spa was great. With rainfall showers, clothing optional uni-sex steam rooms, sauna, hot tub and all the modern treatments you want. Rooms are well done with either patios or balconies. Sunsets were stunning (at least when we were there) and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Saw a helpful front-desk employee deal very well with a rather demanding guest who needed someone to drive her family from the resort to the Taos ski area on Thanksgiving day.

I was a little worried getting off the highway and seeing busy stores and bumper to bumper traffic but the resort is about 3 miles off the main drag so it was very peaceful. The land is owned by the Santa Ana pueblo and you can think of this as a joint venture between Hyatt and the 700+ members of the pueblo. Wonderful place to relax and let kids run and enjoy themselves. Just don't expect to just stroll to attractions to Santa Fe or Albuquerque -- it's located between the two cities.

Best things: Native American storytelling and smores at night; bread baking in the outdoor oven; amazing scenery; fireplaces in the lobby; reasonable prices in the Santa Ana Cafe and a great 3 course organic Alice Waters menu item for $16.95!

Could use improvement: The bicycles need a serious tune-up and some are not very safe -- especially given that we're riding on gravelly roads.

Of course, this has the standard resort amenities: Portico toiletries, 24-hr fitness center, $20 resort fee that includes wifi and use of facilities, valet parking (free self-parking available), deck chairs (with shade) arranged around the pool (and did I mention the water slide?), games, etc.

All in all -- a great for relaxing or for a family retreat with a native American theme.

Room Tip: Sign up by 3pm for the free smores by the fire pit. Check schedule for a taste of the fresh bread as...

I recently stayed at the Tamaya for a business conference. As others have said, the service is far superior compared to other hotels I have visited. Eric (at the front desk) was a rock star! While the interior of the hotel was beautiful, the real treat was being outside. The views were unlike anywhere I have ever visited before. Beds were comfortable, room was very spacious and quiet. Work out room was WELL equipped. We used the shuttle service to visit the casino at night and when we arrived back to the hotel, they had the fireplaces burning outside with ledges to sit and enjoy. Ahhhhh.. :)

My only complaint (and this is no fault of theirs) was that I didn't get to enjoy an early morning bike ride. Sunrise wasn't until 6:30 and our conference schedule started between 7:30 - 8. Bummer.

We stayed here for 2 nights and throughly enjoyed the relaxed desert atmosphere. The grounds are lovely and natural. The food was very good, staff friendly and available, in particular, Chelsea and Antonette at the concierage desk went above and beyond. This is a little off the beaten path but totally worth the trip out of downtown Albuquerque.

Room Tip: If you are not able to walk too far ask for a room near the elevator, this hotel is very spread out...

If you are looking for a getaway, this is the hotel to head to. It is quite a ways from Albuquerque so be sure and rent a car. I accompanied my husband to a conference here and found out too late I would not be able to check out the local attractions listed on the hotel website. They forget to tell you that you will be in the middle of nowhere. While this can be a good thing, I was looking forward to exploring on my own while my husband was at his conference. I could not afford the spa - seemed very overpriced in my opinion. The walking trail is nice - I walked it quite a bit by myself. I can't say anything about the pools - I went in November and did not bring a suit even though the pool must have been heated. The rooms are nice and large - lots of room to spread out. Agree with another reviewer that price for internet is steep. Restaurants were OK but our server seemed annoyed that we did not want the buffet offered that night and that he would have to take our order. Never saw him after food was delivered. It was nice for a long weekend but if I stayed longer I would have been bored. I would go back but only if I had a rent car.
