We stay here when traveling south from northern Colorado. Rooms are large and comfortable-bathrooms are especially nice with excellent lighting. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. We like the casino although there is no alcohol allowed on the casino floor. We have not eaten in the top floor restaurant bet find the others mediocre at best. A waitress responded... More

Sandia Casino is one of the larger casinos in New Mexico. We stayed here on November 1, 2014, for an overnight getaway. I booked the room with my promotional rate; however, the normal price would have been between $200-$300 for one night. As a reminder to our out of state readers, the New Mexico gaming compact prohibits the consumption of... More

The spa was perfect. Exactly what you'd expect from a high-end spa! The common areas were relaxing and ample. The outdoor pool was steps away. My friend and I had a massage then went and spent a couple hours by the pool then went back and had facials. It was a relaxing and perfect day!

Beautiful large rooms. Had a great time. Nice outside pool. However wish they had an indoor pool with the mild tempatures in Albuquerque most of the year you cant really use this amenity. I used the spa which was fabulous. Overall great resort and beautiful views of the Sandia Mountains. Staff is great!

Stayed 2 nights at the resort. Hotel is really nice and they are always adding on and improving. Everyone from front desk, bellmen, housekeeping and restaurant personnel are friendly and welcoming.

Always enjoy staying at Sandia. Rooms are always clean and fresh. I believe the 5th floor is designated for smokers. Any other floor does not have a smoking smell. The Council Room has delicious food - we've had their ribs, burgers, and grilled chicken breast sandwiches. The casino area has a non-smoking area with plenty of slot machines, tables and... More
