“A Perfect Ending to our Road Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2009

This is a off-beat story. On the last day of our vacation, we are rolling into Santa Fe and looking for a nice, clean, comfortable room... something in the range of $100 - $150. I boot up the laptop with wireless Internet connection in the van and decide to check out Expedia. I find a cassita that incredibly lists at $99.00 for one night at Case de Estrellas Moroccan Spa - a four star property. It is too good to be true. So, we decide to park and just walk over there. The manager is showing someone to their room and says he will be with us in 10 minutes. Okay, but why does it take that long to show someone to their room? We wait inside and check out the adjoining art gallery and finally the manager returns. We first ask about a room and he says he can give us a "deal" since it is the last night of a holiday weekend and they are a four star property - $300.00 or something like that. I've forgotten by now (this review is long overdue). We state we found a $99 deal on the Internet on Expedia. He says no way. Well, we boot up the laptop which we carried with us and show him. He says he has to honor the rate. The owner was not one bit happy. And, then later we find out that they've had some issues with Expedia and decide to see if they post a ridiculously low rate, will anyone ever find them on Expedia? Yes, is the correct answer. We register for the room and he takes us there. Wow. It's more like a garage apartment above a carriage house. Beautiful. Rather European, but updated. It takes a while to show us all the amenities including an Espresso machine, all kitchen amenities, stereo, balcony, etc. I stay in four and five star hotels through my job as a conference planner, but on personal trips, we can't afford these types of rooms except perhaps once a year.... and we had already stayed at a historical hotel in California in May. Anyway, the room was gorgeous. Yes, the bedroom is very small and the bathroom even tinier (perhaps to accommodate the huge shower large enough for 2 or 3 people). There virtually was no closet space. But, it did have a full kitchen with dishes and silverware, a dining area, a large living room with a couch and a big-screen TV with a great sound system, and a small balcony. Beautiful tile and carved wooden doors and treatments. The property was not filled. They had a hot tub outside of the spa that we used around midnight. That was nice because every other hotel where I've stayed (including resorts) close the pools and hot tubs at 10:00 pm. Would I stay there again? Probably not but only due to the cost. Do I recommend the property? Absolutely. It was a perfect ending to our road trip where we camped out a few nights, stayed in a different hotel every night, etc. An amazing trip. The only downside to Case de Estrellas is that is far from the plaza and I did not particularly care for the walk in the evening. I told John the Manager I'd write a review and we never got around to it. Here it is. He was a nice guy.

I stayed here with my family in Kama Sutra, as this was their first time to Santa Fe. Every detail was thought out- We had our own garage for our car- which proved to be helpful as there was a hailstorm!!!!!

Immaculately clean; and the beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.

I can't recommend this place enough- it's like walking into a dream.

My husband and I just experienced one of the most wonderful get-aways we've had recently. When we first arrived at Casa de Estrellas in Santa Fe. The manager, John was professional yet made us feel very welcomed and special. He walked us through the main office, which is also a fine art gallery, (Casa Contemporary Fine Art). Since we are both artists and own a fine art gallery on the Oregon Coast - we felt right at home.

Our villa was a cozy, warm and elegant, with hardwoood floors throughout. A well appointed kitchen with a Miele automatic espresso machine, goodies (juice, assorted cheeses, fresh fruit and milk) were stocked in the refrigerator. Tea and coffee was also provided.

The bedroom was inviting with warm tapestries covering the windows and a nice comfortable bed. The bedroom was situated in the corner of the villa - so there was some road noise, however we traveled with a small fan and heard nothing once it was turned on low. The bathroom was fun, decorated with colorful mosaic tile, heated floors, heated towel rack, plush, thick towels and Moulton Brown amenities. It only had a shower (I'm a bath girl) but it was spotless. The living room had a beautiful, REAL stone fireplace complete with plenty of wood to create big, crackling fires with. The fireplace can be seen from the bed too.

John made dinner reservations both nights at popular restaurants that I am sure we wouldn't have been able to obtain on our own.

We look forward to the next time we visit Santa Fe as we will most definitely be staying at Casa de Estrellas.

  • Liked — Cleanliness, attention to detail and made us feel like they were happy we were there.
  • Disliked — Nothing, it was perfect.

My girlfriend and I stayed hear in late August. We originally booked 4 nights and extended 2 more. After seeing pictures of Kama Sutra villa on the website we were excited about staying here. The pictures don't really show how wonderful this propery really is. The staff is attentive and we used the hot tub several times. I really appreciate the non chlorine and very clean water in the tub. I suggest using the spa services. I had the oil drop and my friend had a facial and used the steam room. We just loved staying here and will return.

My fiance' and I were recently married in the beautiful Wedding Garden. We stayed in Celeste and it was very private with a balcony, spacial living and dining area and high end kitchen. The tile work and furnishing are high end and luxurious. The staff is attentive and we always felt welcome. We used the spa after our wedding and tried many of the services. My favorite was the Moroccan Mask and Pediflex foot massage. The quality here is top shelf and we will remember this experience forever.

We arrived late in the afternoon and were greeted by our host John. After arranging restaurant reservations for the evening he showed us around our private villa. Everything about this place is top notch. From the furnishings to the service we always felt like welcome guests. We used the built in expresso machine every day and booked spa services. You should try the steam room it is marvelous. We had oil drop massage on day pediflex with facial the next. Use of the hot tub anytime was really special. This place is a must do!
