Delmar en la Cienega
Ranked #31 of 36 Santa Fe B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 20, 2011

One of the worlds most unique hospitality properties lies just outside the little village of La Cienega, New Mexico. Calling it a B & B doesn't do it justice, although it serves a different gourmet breakfast every morning. The beds and rooms go from very comfortable to luxury unavailable from any 5 star hotel. Yet it's not a hotel, although it features a 28 Foot indoor heated swimming pool.

The proprietress is as unique as everything else about Delmar en La Cienega.
You'll find her refreshing touch in every corner of the 8000 sq. foot 5 Room mansion. She knows the local dining and entertainment scene well.

The structure was built as the private residence for a New Mexico state senator.. It is now a quiet, elegant venue from which to discover the spirit of New Mexico.

My family and I had a wonderful time in Delmar en la Cienega. My daughters loved the heated pool and still in awe that there's pool in the middle of the living room. Our room was lovely with a large bathroom and a jacuzzi. This was our third stay in this room and it's our favorite room. Dee served us the most delicious breakfast with fresh OJ, fresh blueberry pancakes and chocolate mousse for dessert. Yes, we get dessert at breakfast. We love Dee; she embraces all of her guests and makes you feel like home at Delmar. She has lived in Santa Fe for many years and will inform you of restaurants, places to hike and visit. Del mar is a must place to stay in Santa Fe, NM. Its location is perfect since it's only a short ride to the main town and tourist area. We highly recommend Delmar.

When planning our 3-week girls’ trip, my friend and I chose to find B&Bs a bit removed from the cities for a quiet retreat at the end of each busy day. Delmar was that, and much more!

We were warmly greeted by Dee when we arrived after a 7-hour trip from Sedona. One look around that evening before settling in our very comfortable, spacious room, and we knew we’d love it: Delmar is a gorgeously and authentically appointed hacienda, with an indoor heated pool and plenty of lovely areas to sit and relax any time of day.

We also had the good fortune of being with Dee for a night or two by ourselves, which gave us extra girl time for great stories and food. Dee was also available to give us a tour of El Rancho de Las Golondrinas, an outdoor living history museum in which you can experience life in New Mexico in the 1700s. We were very appreciative of her knowledge of and enthusiasm for such a special place.

Santa Fe was a fantastic experience, in large part due to Dee’s expert knowledge (need to know where to park on Canyon Road or where to stop on the High Road to Taos?), fantastic breakfasts and unparalleled hospitality. We are lucky to have met Dee and her dear friend Gene, and would absolutely stay at Delmar again.

Room Tip: Loved our East Room; master suite is amazing too!

It's difficult to put into words our experience at the Delmar. The house is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, and Dee was a gracious hostess. Within minutes of our arrival we felt welcomed and at home. Dee is an excellent chef, and the breakfasts were huge, presented beautifully and very good. The location is handy to many interesting things to do, and Dee and her friends were very helpful in getting us pointed in the right direction, making our touring very easy. After a hot day of doing the tourist thing, it was great to return to the indoor pool to relax. Because of an experience like this, we will return to the Santa Fe area and will definitely stay at the Delmar. We're sorry we didn't get a chance to meet her business partner, Marie, as she was traveling.

I stayed here with my partner and two girls (age 11 and 13) and had a heavenly visit. The room, in fact the whole place, is artfully decorated with thoughtful and gorgeous art and furniture. The decor is tasteful, colourful South West/Tuscan in style and also incredibly comfortable. Our bedroom had a lovely big double bed and the girls each had single bed. The en suite shower/bath room was beautiful and double shower was unusual and fun. Wonderful views from our room. Immaculately clean but not clinically so, you can tell that the owners care deeply for the upkeep of this amazing building with an intriguing history.

The breakfasts are a delight - I counted three courses - beautifully presented, inventive, delicious, seasonal and very filling.

We were made to feel totally at home in the relaxed atmosphere. Staying here was a total pleasure.

We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary trip to New Mexico this past October. Never having been west, we were unsure of where to stay. Finding this B&B on TripAdvisor, I called the Delmar en la Cienega to get details and make a reservation. Dee took the call and immediately became a friend. Even before we arrived, Dee and Marie had taken our itinerary ideas and culinary likes and dislikes into consideration, as well as asking all of the pertinent questions necessary to ensure a lovely stay. Our room was incredible and the amenities of their home outstanding. The decor is beautiful with many wonderful touches of local art and the true feel of New Mexico. Our morning meals were inventive, well prepared and served with love and friendship. Dee and Marie rule in the kitchen! Location was also perfect. We traveled to Abiquiu, Albuquerque, Taos, the Turqoise Trail and more. It was so nice to return home each evening after a fun day to find our suite ready and waiting with the song of the coyotes to sing us to sleep after a dip in the heated pool. We just can't find the words to thank them, as Dee and Marie were in many ways responsible for our memorable days in Santa Fe. Definitely the most wonderful B&B we've stayed in!

Charming, friendly hostesses. Delicious, imaginative breakfasts. Amazing home, decorated to perfection. Off the beaten path in the middle of nature but only 15 minutes drive to town. Listen to the coyotes say goodnight to you. Highly recommended!
