The Isleta Casino and Resort, or the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Albuquerque, as it is also known, provides some of the best gaming action in the southwest outside of Las Vegas. Whether you prefer slots or tables games, there are plenty of both to enjoy, with the poker room serving as the prime hangout for poker enthusiasts. Bingo fans can also get their fill of fun at the Isleta Hard Rock Casino, especially since high-stakes games are held on a daily basis. There are more than 1,500 slot machines on the casino floor, and they include both reel and video machines. In the table game department, more than 30 tables are in place, and these tables put the focus on blackjack, craps, and roulette. Capping it all off when it comes to gaming at the Hard Rock Casino Albuquerque is the Rockstar Club, which is a program that is designed to allow gamblers to earn special benefits while they play.
At some point during your visit to the Isleta Casino and Resort, you might get the urge to take a break from gambling for a while. Two bars provide excellent nightlife venues, and complementing these bars is a restaurant and club that would be right at home in Mexico. Mexican food takes center stage at the cantina-style restaurant and club, and tequila fans should have little trouble finding their brand of choice on the shelves. One of the bars at the Hard Rock Isleta Casino and Resort hosts DJs and local bands with regularity, while the other bar provides a lively social atmosphere in the heart of the casino floor. Wrestling matches and special entertainment events add to the overall entertainment scene at the Isleta Hard Rock.
When looking to get something to eat at the Hard Rock Casino Albuquerque, the buffet can be a good place to go if you're feeling indecisive about what you want. A fusion of southwest cuisine and Italian fare is on offer at the larger of the two bars, and there's also the cantina-style restaurant and club. Other options offer burgers, soups, popcorn, and more at the casual eatery in the Bingo Showroom, drop by the deli-style restaurant to get a sandwich, step into the elegant café restaurant, or get some pastries and things the like at the coffee bar.
The Isleta Casino and Resort can make a fine place to play and stay when visiting the Albuquerque area. This is especially true if you are into the hip and trendy atmosphere that Hard Rock resorts provide or if you want to have the opportunity to tee it up on one of the Southwest's best golf courses. There are no less than 27 holes to play at the Isleta Eagle Golf Club, and these holes are separated into three different 9-hole layouts. Well-manicured fairways and greens are what this course is all about, and the surrounding desert terrain is complemented by a few lakes and the Rio Grande River. After a round or more of golf, you can treat yourself to a rejuvenating session at the luxurious, full-service spa. Guests can also relax at the attractive pool area. The pool is both an indoor and outdoor pool, and just steps from it is a guest hot tub. Enticing seating options are also part of the mix at the pool area, and guests can enjoy convenient towel service or secure a private pool locker.
Seven meeting rooms and a collection of ballrooms are also among the Isleta Casino and Resort facilities, and should you be interested in the accommodations, they include a variety of room and suite categories. Regardless of which guest unit you choose to book, it will come with some very inviting amenities, such as a large flat-screen TV, an alarm clock that you can plug an iPod into, premium bedding, and a deep soaking tub in the sparkling bathroom. While the Isleta Hard Rock Casino Hotel is hard to pass on, those who prefer camping can always consider spending a night or more at the RV park and campground. The sites at this full-service campground are close to all the wonderful Isleta Hard Rock facilities, especially the resort's two fishing lakes. These lakes offer trout fishing in the fall and winter, and catfish fishing in the spring and summer.
