My wife and I have visited dozens of resorts over more than 30 years of travel from coast to coast and this resort definitely ranks in our top 3. The methodical lay-out - from location of front desk, elevators, restaurants, coffee shop, pool, casino, etc. - provides for a most pleasant and efficient experience. The staff from check-in to check-out...

We are not resort people, we like little out of the way hotels. But, we were invited to a wedding in Albuquerque, and the Sandia Resort & Casino was the recommended place to stay. All events except the wedding itself were in the hotel. I can only say we were treated like kings. The hotel van picked us up at...

A nice and inexpensive lunch buffet. It is a long way out but just $2 for a day pass on the ABQ buses. Route 8 then 140 then a lengthy walk from the bus stop. Asian, Mexican and American food and soft drinks are included. A Thurday afternoon it was not busy.

We stopped in and had dinner in the Casino on the restaurant near the pool. The food and service were good and cost between $12-30 per person. They serve a little of everything from burgers to steak. We dropped $80 in slots and called it quits. Best of luck to ya!!😊

It's $28 per adult, unlimited food & drinks. Lots of salmon, crab legs, shrimp, crawfish, and lost more. It was very good, very delicious. Place over all was fairly clean, staff was friendly. But get there early, cause it's only open 4pm-10pm & the line gets long. Also there's more than just seafood, regional food, Italian, Mexican for more options!...

I didn't know what to expect coming into my stay at Sandia. But I came away really impressed with the hotel. I'm not much a casino guy, so I really did not spend any time there, but it looked like it was well appointed for the gambler. My room was really big and had a great leather chair and ottoman...

I stayed here for only one night, coming into town just to attend the Fiery Foods Show on the premises. I arrived a couple hours before check in but my room was available and they let me in early.
