“Exceeded My Expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

Villas de Santa Fe offered a deal on Groupon that was too good to pass up! I checked the reviews on tripadvisor before purchasing, and since each review I read said this was a good place, I made the purchase.

On the way to Santa Fe, I got a little worried about going somewhere new that I had never seen, but when we arrived, the outside had a nice appearance and seemed well-kept. We went inside to check in, and the men at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful; they were some of the best front desk workers I have encountered (and one was even new). This helped put my worries at ease, but when we walked in the building where our room was, I felt concerned again because there was an unpleasant smell that was pretty strong. It resembled chlorine or bleach, so I decided that was actually a good thing.

My worries were completely gone upon entering the room. The room was very clean, and my husband and I were surprised to see that we had received a huge suite completely to ourselves with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area, fireplace, flat screen tvs, and kitchen. The beds were a little low, but they were very comfortable, and the overall decor was nice.

The resort also offers many amenities, but we spent most of our time out and didn't get to take advantage of them (next time..). One thing we hoped to use was their gym, but they have only one treadmill, and it was being used. Since we couldn't wait, we had to leave.

We visited for Valentine's Day weekend, and after spending all day Saturday out shopping and sightseeing, we decided to ask the front desk for dinner suggestions. The same men that had helped us check in were there and handled this very thoughtfully and even called restaurants for us to make reservations/see if there would be a wait. They even gave us great tips for parking. The restaurant they recommended for us (The Blue Corn Cafe) was wonderful.

Overall, Villas de Santa Fe was an excellent stay at a great location, and I recommend it if visiting the Santa Fe area. I hope it will exceed your expectations as much as it did mine!

((ALSO, If you visit, be sure to eat at The Blue Corn Cafe, take a trip to Los Alamos (it's not a far drive), and DEFINITELY go to The Chocolate Maven for breakfast or brunch.))

We stayed at Villas de Santa Fe because I had purchased a Groupon. It was a great value for the money we spent. Location is perfect, 10 minutes walk to the center plaza and great restaurants. The Villas offer outdoor pools and spas, a workout room and shuttle service. We didn't use any of these so can't tell you how they were. The room we had was spacious and included a living area complete with full kitchen (dishwasher, fridge, microwave, 2 burner cooktop and all the dishes and cookware), dining table and chairs, seating area, 2 flatscreen TV's (one in living area, one in bedroom), plenty of storage for clothes but not food and bathroom. The only issue we had that the bathroom door didn't shut properly. Since it was just two of us, it really didn't matter. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and extra sheets and blanket.

If you do stay here, there's a great breakfast place just 3 minutes away called Clafoutis. It opens at 7am and you want to get there soon after as the lines start about 7:45am. Well worth the walk and wait.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor as the plumbing can be noisy.

If you keep on mind this is a Diamond Time Share "Resort", and more of a condo and not a hotel, you will understand this place better. We have been to a number of Diamond resorts and this one excels in comfort and cleanliness . Beds are very comfortable , shower good, decor attractive and they have large flatscreen TVs. The apartments are not large, and do not have large separate kitchens or huge bathrooms as some do, but they are very recently redecorated and updated attractively and are big enough. Clubhouse is very nice with exercise facility, pool table room, computers, etc.

I would not call it a real resort -- no on site restaurant ( but who wants that in Santa Fe a foodie capital!) and pool is small. But it is all very nicely done and is a very pleasant place to stay in Santa Fe.

Our only complaints are
1) noise from apartment above, most likely chairs scraping on the lovely tile floors in kitchen and dressing areas. Try to get a top third floor room. There are elevators.
2) our biggest complaint was the lack of wifi in spite of the fact that it was advertised as being available in the rooms via Attwifi. It was NOT and front desk said they could not help with that and told us we had to call ATTwifi. We did, everyday, and never got a connection. A good hotel and a good resort these days offers free FUNCTIONING Wifi. You cannot count on it at Diamond Resort Properties.

We were not able to get the beds we wanted but the price helped off set that. We were very comfortable in the unit, which was big enough for the two of us. We over looked the big hot spa and cook out area, and it was no problem.
When I contacted staff about a problem with the air jets on the hot tub, it was addressed and corrected within minutes. Very quick service.
We had excellent rersponse to our questions for eating recommendations and tourtint sights.
Yes, we will try to stay here again.
It would be great to have free WiFi in the rooms.

The property was very nice and clean. Even though we were given a handicap accessible room it was good. I did not like the low bed though. The location of this property is very central and the free downtown shuttle was great!
