The Hilton Santa Fe Golf Resort & Spa at Buffalo Thunder combines the best of modern amenities with the beauty of the area’s history. Designed in the distinctive Spanish Pueblo style, the pinkish-orange building exterior matches the blazing Southwestern sunsets.

Throughout the interior are distinctive Native American-themed furnishings and art, including a two-story stained-glass window by a local artist and life-size sculptures of traditionally dressed Native Americans. Rooms are similarly designed with carved wooden headboards and furnishings and Southwestern accents.

Gamblers can check out the hotel’s casino with slot machines, table games and poker. Links lovers can try their hand at the golf club, which has three nine-hole courses, a putting green and a driving range. Or unwind at the full-service spa and enjoy a body, face or hair treatment.

The hotel has seven restaurants, including the Iguana Café, which serves locally inspired meals three times a day.

Although there were some issues the staff at Buffalo Thunder were quick to respond. I know the hotel business is a tough one and all issues can't be resolved as one might like. For example our TV was not working and it took over a day to resolve. But I know the staff was doing their best. They tried very hard and I complement them for the effort. (customers know when their getting the run-around).

The staff was friendly, and attentive. The food was good and great value for the price. It was a relaxing and pleasant stay. The golf course was convenient to get too and in relatively good shape given the drought that Santa Fe is experiencing.

We stayed over Valentine's Day using a Travelzoo coupon which included everything we needed to celebrate properly; great hotel room, wine in our room, coupons for local wine tasting, restaurants in the hotel, and golfing. The swimming pool was absolutely refreshing after walking the Butterfly Trail on the premises. The views of the mountains from our room and on the walking trail were breathtaking. All the meals were delicious. The room was decorated in great Southwestern style, had everything we needed, and the bed was comfortable. We highly recommend this hotel.
