On the advice of my sister-in-law, who had stayed here, we booked a night in the middle of a four-day car trip. The resort was delightful in all respects. The five public hot baths (included in the amenities offered to overnight guests) range in temperature from 101 to 107 degrees. My wife's massage was the best she has ever had. Private baths are also available for an additional fee, and we booked one for the evening to stargaze and watch the moonrise. What decadent luxury! All the baths overlook the placid Rio Grande, and the peaceful surroundings are beautifully enhanced by the serene decor of the grounds -- there are both Native American and Asian contemplation corners everywhere you look. The site is not large but feels comfortable rather than enclosing. The staff are all courteous, friendly, and helpful. This is a definite repeat -- only next time, for two or three days!
