The best part was that we went at noon and our party of six was sat immediately. When you pay with your free members card you get a discount, which covers the tip.... More

Friendly staff, very comfortable rooms, good choice of dining establishments--I was somewhat disappointed this trip to find that most of my favorite slots had been removed (favorite meaning that I usually won on them) and replaced with not so generous slots--also, the place is now "lousy" with penny and nickel slots (I play $1 an $5 slots)-Of course almost all...

The Council Room in the Sandia Resort & Casino is a nice getaway from the casino area to have a sit-down relaxing meal The decor is classy with the dark wood, the service excellent with friendly staff, but the food just okay.

Went to Bien Shur restaurant for a birthday celebration on election day. The place was about 15% full and we had a 6:30 reservation for a window table. I ordered the prime rib only to find out they had already run out. Really, at 6:30 on a Tuesday? Our meal was OK, but in the future there are better restaurants,... More

This is the most beautiful resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room overlooked the swimming pool. Fire pits, and best of all, the San Dios Mountains. The bed and pillows were super comfortable and liked the turn down service. Over all, just a great place!
