“Villas de Santa Fe - A Good Deal”
Reviewed May 6, 2008

We arrived for a five day stay on Saturday after an early bird flight from JFK. All we wanted was to get into the room and relax. We arrived at 2:00 PM. We checked with the desk and our room was ready! Usual check in time is 4:00PM.

The front desk staff was very good, cordial, friendly, and extremely helpful. The resort offers free shuttle service to the 'The Plaza".

The one bedroom unit was excellent, the linens were very good quality, towels were heavy weight. The room was nicely decorated to promote local culture and art.

The resort is centrally located in a residental area. Our room overlooked the the heated hot tub.

Anything we needed was just a phone call away. The resort was a great deal.

We spent most of our time traveling to National Parks including the Pecos National Monument, Santa Fe Historic Trail, Fort Union National Monumnet, Tent Rocks, and Petrogylphs National Park -- photographing as much as possible.

We also visited the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque, and the Sandia Peak Tramway with its great views. The Sandia Casino was a nice side trip for lunch.

If you like hot chile then visit the Horseman's Haven located on Cerrilllos Rd. Great New Mexican cuisine. If your journey takes you to Chimayo, visit the Rancho de Chimayo, which opens for lunch at 11:30 am. Good place to eat after visting the Santuario De Chimayo Mission.

We had a great time on our trip to New Mexico.

Villas de Santa Fe was recommended to us by a friend and we were very impressed. The accomodations were spacious, clean and really nice - much better than staying in a hotel. The location was really convenient to everything, and the free shuttle was great to avoid having to park downtown. We stayed in a one bedroom, and the value we got for what we paid was excellent. If we ever go back to Santa Fe, we would definitely stay here again.

Villas de Santa Fe was a very nice place to stay. We stayed six nights in a one bedroom unit. The furniture and the carpet was all new. The bed was comfortable as well. The bathroom was a little small and could have used a little work. The lobby was great, check in and out were a breeze. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had to get different directions everyday. They also volunteered to print out our boarding passes the day we checked out. Did not use the hot tub because it wasn't as hot as I liked, but the kids loved it. Pool table and computers were close to the lobby as was the laundry. Everything was very, very clean. Not as big as the units in Sedona, but still comfortable. Would go back in a heartbeat.

After reading negative comments from both Trip Advisor and from the huge guest book in the entrance, I was almost ready to dismiss the property with a 3-circle rating. After all, there are stains on the carpets in the units, hallways, and even in the lobby area. And yes, upholstery needs firming, dining chairs need to be recovered and bedding should be improved (pillows and sheets). But many of us are staying at half the rates of major hotels in town. Front desk and grounds workers are very friendly and helpful. There is always someone at the desk should any problems arise. Since our last visit four years ago, numerous changes have taken place. Gone is the room where sales representatives would entice guests into buying time shares. Instead, there is a small workout room with enough equipment to satisfy most guests. Near the front desk is a business center offering free internet access. Hot drinks and orange juice are always available in the lobby. Fortunately, the free shuttle into town is still available from 7 am to 10 pm. As many contributors have noted, the location is indeed very good, just 5 blocks from the plaza and two long blocks from the De Vargas shopping center. Can you imagine what this place would be like if attention were paid to the building upkeep?

This property is badly in need of upgrading and a functioning maintenance plan. The locals come in and freely use the pool. The manager is a young fellow who doesn't really manage but allows the property to age more rapidly than it should. But then Sunterra may be having cash flow problems. But you simply can't beat the price $135 USD per night for 650 sq.ft and a five minute walk to the Plaza.

My husband and I spent a week here at the end of July. We really enjoyed it. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit and had plenty of room. The kitchen is small but adequate. Our building seemed to be full but we weren't disturbed by noise from other guests. Check-in was smooth and we really enjoyed the always available hot chocolate, coffee and juice in the lobby area. It is very close to the Plaza -- just a 5-10 minute walk. We would definately stay here again.

A spacious clean one bedroom suite with living room and well equipped kitchen. It is a pleasant 5 minute walk from the center of town. The ammenities are minimal (small pool and hot tub) but this is a bargin by Santa Fe standards.
