Since it first opened in 1994, The Sandia Resort and Casino has undergone extensive developments to its property to provide a truly all-inclusive and luxurious experience for visitors. Owned and operated by the Pueblo of Sandia, it was the very first Indian casino in New Mexico at its opening. Now there are approximately 25 tribal casinos in the state, including Sandia.

The goal was to create an upscale experience that was close to home for New Mexicans, while encompassing Southwestern pride and culture for out-of-state visitors. With friendly customer service and opulent amenities, this goal was not only realized, it made Sandia Resort & Casino the best place for entertainment in the state.

The Vegas-style casino floor measuring at 140,000sq.ft. is only the tip of the iceberg in regards to all that Sandia Casino has to offer. With the addition of the hotel in 2005, and another expansion in 2014 to add the golf pavilion and parking garage, Sandia Resort & Casino slowly became much more than just a place to game. Now visitors from all over the nation and New Mexicans looking for a place to get away, can get lost in the lights and sounds of the casino floor, relax at the luxurious Green Reed Spa, dive into the outdoor pool, tee off on the 18-hole championship golf course, listen to their favorite singer at the outdoor amphitheater, dine at any of the numerous restaurants, bars, and lounges, get married to their best friend, and spend the night in one of the grand, luxury suites – all available onsite.

Come say hello to New Mexico’s best place to play – Sandia Resort & Casino!

    Beautiful and comfy rooms…

  78. Melissa Schreffler say:

    Last summer my friend was 9 months pregnant and visited your casino. Another patron misplaced her money and accused my friend of taking it. Instead of handling this rationally or professionally, your security team acted like thugs. Had they bothered to review the security footage, they would have seen her put her own cash into the machine and is not a thief. Your security cornered her hours after she was near the other patron and got in her face to intimidate her and shake her down for $50. SIX MONTHS LATER you offer her $75 credit at your casino. This is in no way adequate compensation for the stress, anxiety, and humiliation you caused her for something she didn’t even do. She was 9 months pregnant. Thank God nothing bad happened to her or the baby. I am disgusted you allow your security to harass any of your customers. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. I will NEVER step foot into your establishment.

  79. Kurt Remington say:

    Fun times!

  80. Tracye Hall Leal say:

    Fun !

  88. Brianna Ricenbaw say:

    Horrible! Don’t stay here if you expect any type of customer service from anyone but the valet. This casino is a joke…they are rude for no reason & even their nicest restaurant has shitty servers who show no enthusiasm for their job. I will NEVER stay here again & will absolutely lead my friends away from such a horrible experience!

  89. Ethan Reyes say:

    Fair to good – could use more work on the sound system, otherwise, beautiful views! Bring Santana back, he rocks the house!

  147. Brandon Smith say:

    All sizzle and no steak. Other than a couple of front desk people the staff was generally annoyed that you were there. The rooms look very nice but there were structural things that are tale tell signs that it was done on the cheap (missing grout, pipes knocking, etc.). On top of that my daughter lost her phone, we tracked it through GPS to the security office and they would not help us at all.

    If you are determined to go there, go there now while the resort still looks decent.

    Not enough staff for simple appetizers and drinks before concerts (but plenty of table games staff)… And not nearly enough staff and spots to get food/drinks during the show, 20-30 minute lines SUCKS!!

  152. Tim Archuleta say:

    As someone who Frequents This casino, It has become Very difficult to Be happy, or smile when ANY amount of time, has been spent there… I Do not win. i read the payback amounts, and I seriously believe that the amount % of paybacks, are Not true… I used to go ALL THE TIME, and more. Any more, i leave with a heavy sinking feeling, and I know If I go back, No matter the amount of $ i spend, Or what’ machines I play. I will leave with nothing. wait. a water. i will leave with a “free” water. I think to myself whenever I leave, Why do I even Come in here? It does not matter how often, how much i spend $ “thousands and thousands in the past 15 years” I have NEVER once won a “HAND PAY JACKPOT”. and this is NO LIE….. I truly believe this casino, Does NOT pay out as much as they say…. close to home? YES unlucky me, Far from Ordinary? YES, I lose A Far from ordinary amount of Cash $ 99% of the time…..

  161. Carlos Gutierrez say:

    Had the worst experience Friday night try to have a nice dinner upstairs was completely ignored after we got Sat at our table we ended up walking out and called the manager and told him our situation he apologized and said that he would make it right I refused because how upset I was we stayed at the upstairs bar to have some drinks then the manager approached us and said he’d make it right for us I refused again he said he’ll come back after we had our cocktails and maybe we change our mind finally after his third attempt we decided to give him the opportunity to make it right he took it to another table service was better we finished our meal I received a $120 bill which was expected the first time I walked in I refused him trying to make it right 2x because I wasn’t looking for freebies but he insisted on making it right and I guess his way of making it right was to citizen give us the service we are supposed to get in the first place he didn’t even offer my girl a free dessert so basically he didn’t make anything right he just Hustle is back in there to get our money where did he make it right still trying to figure that out Horrible will never go back!!!!!!!

  164. Roberto Bobby Hernandez say:

    To begin with we had not seen such beautiful architecture and design as Sandia Resort. To top it off the breath taking scenery of the Sandia mountains right behind the resort. All in all a wonderful place to visit and to eat at their great buffet !

  165. Joan Alvarez say:

    Had a bad experience in the lounge. Bartenders and management were rude and were less than professional. The hotel only gave us one key and it didn’t work.

  166. Augusto Velásquez Ortiz say:

    The Best hotel in Albuquerque, the rooms a the most comfortable and the view of the Sandia Mountains is breathtaking in the mornings

  167. Jamie Jordan-Prieto say:

  181. Hilda Sanchez say:

    Not comfortable when people stand around you while enjoying playing the slot machine and start asking if you could help them out with some money! It’s happening every time we visit! Other than that we love everything else their food, customer service, friendly staff. Facilities amazing!

  182. Becky Pritchett say:

    I not a big Casino fan, however the venue is gray for live music! Beautiful sound and not a bad set anywhere. The rooms are beautiful and the dine on the sandias from the 8 floor is spectacular. Great bar too.

    It’s beautiful but machines are too tight! Other casino let you win more!

  189. Oralia Lopez say:

    This is the 2nd time I visit Sandia. I still think it’s beautiful. The only thing is I could only see my points and nothing else. I don’t know if I had any free plays. But it’s ok I’ll be back for sure within 4 months or so.

    Nasty as Fuck !
    New Mexico needs a good casino that fair and square ✌️

  192. Dominic Herrera say:

    Food is disgusting and the chances of being struck by lightning or winning the lottery are significantly higher than your chances of winning at this casino

    Sandia Resort & Casino Your security put their hands on me and detained me and a friend against our will, you are only security and like everyone one else you can and will be held liable, and since you were representing the casino at the time Mr. Security the the tall fat white guy who did touch me and did prevent me from having free will, and gave ample time for you to explain your reasoning as to violating my civil rights and detaining me against my will, and stealing my drivers license, the casino is responsible for your actions, just because your on Indian territory you people at Sandia are not invienceable, I to can file charges with the FBI or USMS services. So you need to mail my drives license that you intentionally stole, and you need to pay more attention to the crack WHORE prostitutes (Joy Morales) that are patronizing people at the casino or are you guys in on that too and take a cut and allowing these strong out drug whores do what they want to do to include menacing, terrorize, herass, and follow people home and threaten lives and lives of immediate family! I will follow through and hope you know I am very serious and will be seeing you in court for your unprofessional decisions you did violating my civil rights, false imprisonment, racial profiling, and assault!

    And when you expect an answer they do this:
    They block you, answer in an hour or less my ass! By not responding and blocking me and not responding you
    are admitting fault, guilt and responsibility! Also need a correct copy of video of incident. Thank you

  198. Mary Ann say:

    Sandia is not what it used to be, they used to appreciate us before .They give us $5.00 free play what a joke, it cost me more in gas to get there. The last year I have lost a lot of money in there, the machines never pay, Before I could play with $1000 for a long time now It gone with in 2 to 3 hours.
    Come on Sandia quit being so tight. Shame on you.

  203. Isabel Herrera say:

    Is really beautiful and pice full
    Fun,, and I recommend this place for vacation ..

  204. Menzi Menz say:

    The Hotel and Resort is beautiful. But we made the mistake going to the restaurant 30 minutes before closing. First off one of the waiters kept starring at us. You could tell he wasn’t happy. Than I got sick from my food almost immediately. So, I hate to think someone manipulated my food but I did get a ranzig taste.

  205. Cat N Drew say:

    Haven’t been here in a long time, and now I know why… Customer service in the bar was horrible. The bartenders are judgmental and will call security if they don’t like you; wasn’t even buzzed or intoxicated. Not sure why we had to leave. Will never come back here again.
    This is the bar in the main lobby. It needs be avoided!!

  206. Lorrie Griego-Guillen say:

    It used to be so much fun, I can’t remember the last time I won!! For the amount I play I had at least one hand pay, ($500 or more) now it’s been a year, and nothing, you can even win free games, they must adjust the odds!!

  207. Kristie Edwards say:

    I used to love this place… nice little getaway for me and my kids, and a decent price. We have been going for over 5 years. But I tried to book a room for a last minute vacation. And they raised their room rates by $200. They said they didn’t know why but as of the end of July their rates doubled by over 100%. Well now me and my family no longer stay at this establishment. Well…it was fun while it lasted.

  208. Jennifer Millar say:

    My boyfriend and I wanted to spend my birthday there yesterday so we purchased the birthday package which included a cake, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. I never received the strawberries and the slot took my $147 and wouldn’t cash out so I had to wait 50 mins for them to give me my money back and The staffs wasn’t very nice.

  209. Kate Thurston say:

    I have never in my life been so poorly mistreated by an establishment. 14 girls came out for a bachelorette party, spent money on a double suite, a cabana and a rooftop dinner. Thousands of dollars later we were approached by the waitress at 9pm while SITTING in the lounge listening to the DJ and told we were “slowed down” for an hour, the bride approached a women who “appeared” to be the manager of the lounge to ask why we were being cut off. She accused us of “going in and …

  210. David Biagini say:

    Home of the $4,000 CHEESEBURGER!

    I used to love going to this casino and particularly enjoyed their cheeseburgers so it saddens me to have to write this review.

    I ordered five cheeseburgers to go for lunch with my young godsons. While I was eating my cheeseburger I bit into something that cracked a healthy tooth completely in half. It was quite painful. My godsons were emotionally distressed because they had never seen me in such pain.

    I immediately scheduled an appointment with my dentist. The tooth had to be extracted and a bridge fitted. The total cost was nearly $4,000!

    The casino referred me to their insurance company, Tribal First. Tribal First refused my claim because I could not produce the object that caused the break – I had swallowed it. I had four eye witnesses, the receipt, and phone records to my dentist but they still refused.

    I wrote a letter to the casino’s General Manager. It was ignored. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. It has been ignored.

    I am out of pocket nearly $4,000 and have lost a perfectly healthy tooth all because I ate a cheeseburger from the Sandia Resort and Casino. Be very careful if you ever eat at this place.

  211. Bernie Mac say:

    I have no issue with the resort although I am extremely disappointed to see that such a reputable company would hire such a deceiving, cheating, lying and manipulative individual as Victor Saavedra in Security!
    This man and his female partner in crime Heidi have a citywide reputation for being very destructive to many local businesses. They approach a business and do everything in their power to rob them of everything “IF” they do not get what they are seeking! (FREE STUFF)
    They are excellent at attempting to damage small businesses by either gaining free items or giving bad reviews! Fortunately most reading know the pattern of a habitual liar but it is still sad knowing that he is security at your casino! What a shame and what a disgrace to your company!

  212. Ricky Garcia say:

    GREEDY mo fos! They say they honor veterans but yet they can’t even give a Soldier a free hot dog at least…. Ripping people off all day and can’t even do that for the Veterans! WTF???

  213. Lupe Vasquez say:

    Didn’t stay in the resort / we were just passing through but enjoyed it/hopefully I’ll make it back next year and stay at least for the night �

    New waitress I think, food was good thought, typical slots that take your money
