    My husband and I enjoy Santa Fe and frequently travel there. This was our first stay at the resort and we were very satisfied. The staff was professional and friendly. The rooms were nice with a kiva fireplace and nice balcony overlooking the golf course. The art work was outstanding. We had the bed and breakfast plan and were extremely happy with the service. We would definately stay at the Buffalo Thunder resort again.

    Parking can be a problem,especially if you come back late in the evening.

    I would definitely recommend,,,It's a beautiful place to come and relax...there is a casino downstairs that was fun to come back to after town shopping. It is a few minutes away from where we really wanted to go but we didn't mind the drive. I checked for hotels closer to the town area and some reviews said they were too pricey or too dirty..I Was happy to have chosen this hotel...the only negative thing is "I guess the cleaning people came in and saw an empty water bottle from the bar " The hotel put it on my bill...we never use the stuff from the bar because it's expensive,,we always bring our own...the lady at the counter removed it without a problem. Other than that it was a perfect getaway even if it was just for one night.

    Spacious, location, convenient while traveling by car, could not ask for a more courteous and helpful staff, nice rooms, outstanding breakfast. I recommend guests book to include the breakfast. It is a four star place for sure.

    If your plan is to visit downtown Santa Fe, it is a dozen miles drive and parking there is not real easy.

    I appreciated the quality of the service. I was having real problems with the safe in my room and the staff was most helpful and attentive. When the matter was resolved, the management even offered me coupons to use in one of the property's various restaurants/bars, which was not necessary, but welcome!

    Good

    Wifi is not working in the room. It seems to only work in the lobby. The location is too far from the Santa Fe centre. Rooms are very dark.

    The swimming pool was closed and was very upsetting as they decided to perform maintenance during regular hours. We were really looking forward to going swimming and believe this incident decreased the value of our stay.

    Superb

    The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was very nice with a very comfortable bed and a nice balcony space. Greatly enjoyed the golf course and the pool. The food was also good although we ate a lot of meals in downtown Santa Fe with family and friends. Excellent margaritas at the lobby bar.

    The bathroom sink space was a bit small and cell phone service was occasionally poor. Downtown Santa Fe is close (20 min) although parking there is a bit expensive.

    Fabulous

    The room was fantastic but I was charged for just looking at mini bar.

    Way too much walking to get to anything-they need small shuttles-I was sore from just getting from room to casino or cafe

    Hotel looks brand new, very clean and luxurious, has an excellent restaurant and bar with view of pool area, a Starbucks with great coffee and goodies baked on premises, plus built on beautiful terrain, close to Santa Fe.

    The tv was big but most stations were not in hd. Other than that, the room was above par, very clean, beautifully furnished.

    The price of the room was excellent. I feel I got an exceptional room for the price! I was impressed with the family atmosphere as well. Pool, arcade, kid's club, etc.

    Exterior and interior design was perfect, it matches the local architecture.

    Extremely rude ( 0 smile) personnel ( except the consierge), they look like they only respect the guests that look highly reach and pay full check with no doubts or questions at all. Mini bar sensors are unacceptable making guests feel like they are thefts by definition.

    The beds were comfortable, we had a nice balcony, and the rooms were really nice and very clean.

    No mini fridge in the room. Rooms were really far from elevator/stair ways.
