“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Picked this resort as our friends & traveling companions were staying here...was a little apprehensive after reading reviews but was pleasantly surprised. From the moment of check-in till we left...what an accommodating resort. Very pleasant & helpful front desk staff...very willing to suggest restaurants & points of interest. Complimentary coffee, juice & hot chocolate in the lobby area which was a very comfortable area with tv & very comfortable seating. Very, very clean rooms & very comfortable beds!

Don't hesitate to pick this hotel...you will also be pleasantly surprised.

Location, location, location. A few blocks from Santa Fe Plaza makes this an ideal place. Close to the restaurants, galleries and shops makes this a great location. Parking is a nightmare for the plaza and so to be able to stroll to destinations is a great feature. The overall qualities of the Villas is cleanliness. Spotless. The beds are so comfortable. Quiet neighborhood. When we had a problem with the TV and blu ray player, hot water temperature, the response was quick and friendly. The kitchenette was very well stocked. The items provided were surprisingly good quality. My only quibbles are that the Wi Fi should have been free. $30 to ATT for 1 week subscription is high way robbery and the washer and dryers should be free. Otherwise, I am very satisfied and would not hesitate to return to the Villas.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay here at Villas de Santa Fe. We were very thrilled to read that our accommodations, amenities, customer service, and location met, if not exceeded your expectations. Our team members take great pride in providing exceptional customer service towards our guests. Please be advised that we do not profit or collect the fees related to Wi-Fi. These fees are charged by a 3rd party vendor- A T&T. That being said, we have received a lot of feedback in regard to Wi-Fi costs, and have been in discussion with our Homeowner’s Association to see if this can be covered for guests in the future. We sincerely appreciate your recommendation, and look forward to seeing you again the next time you travels take you to Santa Fe!

Recent drove up to Santa Fe to visit the Santurio de Chimayo which is a Church built in 1810 and has been known for it's HEALING DIRT. We last visited this place 3 years ago and due to a recent injury to my Feet, we decided to take the trip again for the Healing Dirt. My Sister who decided to let us use her Time Share which is in Santa Fe about 50 miles south of Chimayo. It is at the Villa de Santa Fe. Great Place, centerally located to downtown Santa Fe and the NM Veterans Cemetary.

Room Tip: Stayed in ADA room which is the best room with ADA accessibility yet. Great Bathroom, bed and kitch...

This is an OK property, not one of the more outstanding Diamond Resort properties. The upside is it is within walking distance to downtown, but if you don't want to walk, there is a courtesy van to take you there. The downside is the 1 BR suites only have a stovetop and the washer and dryers (which are not free) are in the reception building. Even though we were assured we had a top floor unit, we ended up on the 2nd floor which is really 1 1/2 floors up from the parking lot. If we wanted to sit out on the balcony, we had cars pulling in right up to the unit.

We regret if the apartment allocation was not to your satisfaction and we would like to assure you that we always try and fulfil all our gusts’ requests, however to our equal disappointment, due to the availability limitations this is just not always possible. We regret if this has caused you any inconvenience, yet we hope that you had an otherwise pleasant stay and that you might consider us for your future bookings!

This is run by our time share company, and we've stayed there many times. It's within walking distance of the plaza. The swimming pool with hot tub is nice in warm weather. The staff is accomodating. The rooms are functional and pleasing. We enjoy the place, but it is not on the high end of the scale. For us, it's a bargain since our schdule is flexible and we get in for half the points. My only real knock is the lack of adequate parking.

My husband and I just got back from a long weekend to Santa Fe, NM (our first, but probably not our last). The Villas de Santa Fe was perfect for our needs. We stayed in Rom 2312 (Bldg 2, 3rd floor). Had a view of the hot tub and patio area with the 2 gas grills. The kitchen only has 2 stove top burners and no stove, but we were able to make breakfast and one dinner in the condo About 5-6 blocks from the plaza and an Albertson's grocery store less than 1 mile. They have a free shuttle which we took to the farmers market on Saturday. Then you just call them to pick you up. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here the next time you are in Santa Fe

Room Tip: See above. We were in Building 2, 3rd floor. Pretty quiet.
