“Great Birthday Trip”
Reviewed April 27, 2010

I traveled from Arkansas to Albuquerque to visit my daughter for our birthdays in April. We went to Ojo Caliente for a "girl's spa treat" and really enjoyed it. We were pleased that it isn't a "fancy" upscale place. It's luxurious without being pretentious. We enjoyed a massage and soaked in the various mineral springs until we had wrinkles. The restaurant was outstanding and we really enjoyed the food. Our room was very nice and very comfortable. I would definitely recommjend Ojo Caliente.

My husband & I were born and raised in Santa Fe. We have always wanted to go the Ojo springs. We splurged for anniversary and rented a cliff suite w/ private tub. WOW! It was absolutely amazing!!! Worth every penny. The restaurant is delicious! Do not eat anywhere else. We had lunch and dinner and are sorry we missed breakfast.

This was my second stay at Ojo Caliente. I like the rooms in the original building., which are quaint and modest and reasonably priced. I love that they have places to stay from primitive camping by the river to the new upscale casitas. Something for everyone! I also enjoy the restaurant and the nearby hiking. It is truly one of my favorite places to renew and recharge.

My husband and I went here on a recommendation from a friend. If you like hot springs but not the "funky" atmosphere that sometimes can accompany them - then this is the place for you. From your first impression of the waterfall/logo sign you can tell this is someplace special.

The lobby is beautiful with a fireplace and native sculptures and the front desk staff were very helpful and nice. The grounds are well taken care of and at night transform into a "litle village" type atmosphere with fireplaces and paths that beg you to sit and stay awhile. The gift shop is something that should not be missed. And don't worry, if you forgot to bring something for soaking - they most likely have it.

There are many different pools to choose from. Our favorite ended up being the "iron" pool with the pebbles on the bottom. We liked this one best for both the temperature of the spring water and its overall appeal. But the absolute best was our private outdoor pool with fireplace at night. We loved it so much we booked it twice. The first time was for 2 hours (which I found to be a little too long) and then for 1 hour (which was perfect). No swim suite required. The view of the stars from your pool and the fire - both relaxing and magical. Our massages were great and the spa staff was excellent as well.

We did not stay in the rooms as we drove our RV there. But we did see several of them during our stay and they ranged from quaint and cozy to the very elegant. The RV park was very private with lots of trees and the sites are situated along the river so it made for lots of nice walks with our 3 dogs. We also got to hike up into the mountains just behind the property every day.

And last but not least - great restaurant. We had lunch one day and dinner the next. The food was fabulous with that perfect local flare. If you are there on a weekend - reservations for dinner are a must since there is limited seating.

Since returning, I have given out 6 brochures to friends and told them it is a wonderful romantic getaway. Perfect for a weekend trip from Colorado. I would go back tomorrow if I could.

My friend and I stayed over one night in the historic hotel. We had a wonderful visit! And the food served in the hotel restaurant was some of the best we'd ever eaten. The staff were all friendly and warm and the hot springs delightful. With the cost of admission included in the price of our hotel room, it was a bargain! We both will highly recommend this sweet resort to friends and family as a get-away that's not too far away.

Front desk greets guests by charging money for the loss of the room key or the tag for the pools, they do not understand the importance of building loyalty with a guest, no spirit of service, we wanted to stay for another night but the rate offered was not in accordance with the rate previously offered on the phone at the moment of the reservation in case we wanted to stay for another night. So we drove for another hour and stayed at the Hilton in Santa Fe.
Food was cold and the shrimp was really dry, the quesadillas where so dry and hard we didn't finish our meal. Front desk staff is totally untolerant.
Agood review for housekeeping staff, they where really polite and friendly.
