The Tamaya Resort is located a short 15-20 minute drive outside of the Albuquerque metro area and nestled in the desert by the Rio Grande. The architecture is all southwest adobe - and I love it. We stayed there 3 days and every one of them was great.
The valet was always there with the car - making sure to clean off my car's windows before we took off. The attendants, house staff, front desk and grounds keepers were all out-going and friendly in a sincere manner.
Our room overlooked the "basque" (forest lining the river) and mountains. It was an impressive view. I watched the sun rise over the mountain from my balcony in the mornings and then took the a stroll along the river. The trail to the river is well marked and maintained. The trail itself is dotted with exercise stations for those inclined to do something more than stroll through the woods. I highly recommend the trail - I saw river otters playing in the river...a pleasant surprise. Another guest spotted turkeys in the trees...I didn't see them.
We found the staff always very polite, very helpful. We ate our first dinner on the back porch at the Santa Anna Cafe. Excellent pizza - and excellent beer. My wife and I never have seen Road Runners before - but they had one little fellow outside who was interested in anything we'd toss his way. The swifts were just starting to arrive and establish territories - It was pretty interesting watching them chase each other. It's a very relaxing area to sit and look out over the basque and mountains. If you're just enjoying a beer or waiting for somebody to show up this is a comfortable and beautiful area to enjoy or wait. Very scenic, and serene.
The pool areas are attractive and enticing - very welcoming, one pool is separate and set aside for adults only. Didn't use the exercise room or even look for it. I recommend the Regency Club where you can fill up on breakfast - talk to the concierge there at your leisure, get drinks - it's all very convenient.
The rooms we had were expansive and comfortable. The grounds were quite, well maintained. I'd stay there again because I don't care to be rushed - and I want to look out at something other than a city scape. Best place I could find in ABQ area and I wasn't disappointed.
