Sandia Casino

Sandia Casino offers a fun, sophisticated, and all around spectacular gaming and entertainment atmosphere just minutes from downtown Albuquerque. Found on Rainbow Road to the north of Albuquerque, this sleek and rather refined casino hotel aims to honor the native pueblo culture through its overall decor. Guests will relish the fact that there is plenty of things to do on the side when they're not gambling, and you certainly don't have to leave the grounds to stay busy. As for the gambling, the Sandia Resort and Casino offers more than 140,000 total square feet of gambling space, and set within this space are slots and table games to suit a wide range of interests.

For table game enthusiasts who are visiting the Sandia Casino, blackjack, roulette, craps, and other industry favorites such as three card poker and mini baccarat are among the options. It is also possible to pull up a chair at one of the tables in the spacious, nonsmoking poker room, and if you want to switch things up at some point, this is the only casino in New Mexico that offers live keno. Fun table games, poker, and keno aren't the only possibilities when it comes to Sandia Casino gaming, however. You can also enjoy some entertaining bingo action. Should you be wondering, the slots total more than 2,000 and there are more than 50 table games. The gaming action at the Sandia Resort and Casino can be enjoyed between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Sundays and weekdays, and around the clock on Fridays and Saturdays.

As is true of most casinos, at least the good ones, the Sandia Casino offers a players club for anyone who is interested in having the chance to earn special rewards while they gamble. It also offers other entertainment options for when it's time to take a break from tempting Lady Luck. A variety of events, such as big ticket concerts, are among the overall entertainment options, and between the four restaurants and the three lounges, you should have little trouble getting something good to eat or drink. The restaurants include a fine dining rooftop establishment, a steakhouse, and a buffet.

Enjoying special events and treating yourself to a dining experience aren't the only options for things to do at the Sandia Casino when you want to take a break from gambling. At the Sandia Casino Hotel, a lovely 18-hole golf course that is part of the Sandia Golf Club is available for play during the day, and you can drop by the state-of-the-art spa when getting pampered is the main objective. The 12,000-square-foot spa, you might be interested to know, offers some excellent facilities, including sauna rooms and plunge pools, and golfers of all levels can challenge themselves on the links. From the front tees, the Sandia Casino golf course is 4,900 yards. Play from the back tees, and you'll have to negotiate 7,700 yards of sumptuous desert golf terrain.

There are some good casino hotels to choose from in the Albuquerque area, such as the Isleta Hard Rock Casino and the Route 66 Casino. You won't want to overlook the Sandia Casino Hotel, however, especially if a relatively upscale room and a wonderful outdoor pool sound good to you. The views of the surrounding mountains in the pool area are sublime, and generally speaking, the overall atmosphere is an enticing one. This casino resort and the surrounding area have the Southwest written all over them, and in a very good way.

Getting to the Sandia Casino Hotel is made easy by the fact that the Albuquerque Airport is only about ten miles away. Resort guests can enjoy complimentary airport shuttle service, and both limo and sedan service are also available for a fee. Once you get to the resort, you can still rely on limo and sedan service for getting around if you please. The rates are more enticing than you might think, especially if you split them with others.
