We spent nearly a month looking for the perfect venue for our Fall 2017 wedding. We visited over a dozen locations and researched many more online. We were very impressed with the photos and reviews for Sandia Resort & Casino and decided to check it out in person. We met with Ana (who is really amazing) and got a tour of the premises. We were actually surprised by how much we loved the place.

The views from here of the Sandia mountains are stunning. We loved the mountain-view terrace and the newly constructed archway/pergola for the ceremonies. The ballrooms are gorgeous and the smaller more intimate rooms (eagle, etc) are really nice with the windows to the outside. We got to see one of the ballrooms set up with the tables dressed for a wedding that weekend and it looked picture perfect. The options for color scheme and centerpieces were by far the best of all the places we checked out. The staff really takes care of the details. The hotel makes logistics extremely easy: they have shuttle services to/from the airport, you have use of a limo the weekend you get married, complimentary room for couple, and they even include a nice wedding cake with the package. The value gained for money spent is incredible.

We spent over a week going back and forth between our top three choices. We ultimately decided upon a different venue that was able to cater slightly better to our vision (more rustic/outdoor).

Definitely check out this venue and meet with a wedding coordinator here.

I met with Beth who was absolutely amazing, she showed us the inclusive pieces of the wedding and was not bothered to answer any of my questions. She followed up with me and took the initiative to save the date I am looking at just in case. She was receptive and insightful to my needs and very positive to work with. The venue is beautiful and have a lot of things that I appreciated being included (cake, champagne, bride and groom suite, etc.). She responded quickly to my requests, concerns and provided me information necessary to move forward with planning my wedding. She allowed room in her schedule to meet with me and then later that week to meet with my fiancé and myself again.

Beth and her staff at Sandia were excellent. They took care of everything and even stepped in when our cake people fell short. Beth ensured that our reception was perfect by communicating with the DJ and everyone else involved. It is a gorgeous venue, we took some beautiful pictures outside. The ballrooms are spectacular and I would recommend them to anyone.

The cost of our wedding day was fairly hefty, but between the excellent service we received planning and organizing everything, and the fact that the wedding and the reception at Sandia went off without a hitch made it a real day to remember. Sandia catered our reception, setup a bar, all of the decorations and gave us a free room for our wedding night. The view was beautiful, the venue was beautiful and we couldn't be happier. Special thanks to Meghan for helping us through the whole process!

First off - I loved this venue. Our guests loved this venue. The food was great. You can read all about the great stuff in other reviews - let me tell you about the bad stuff that happened.

We held our ceremony and reception in the same room. We planned the room ahead of time, and come the day of, the room was set up wrong. Make them change it if this happens to you. The gift table was next to the door & we let it slide. Bad idea.

When they say they'll take care of the gifts for you, DON'T BELIEVE THEM. They are YOUR responsibility, and you will find that out first hand when someone steals some of them, and the first thing they do is stutter and say they don't know what to do. They they start saying it's your fault, not theirs. It's a casino. Post a guard on your gift table. Have someone accompany your gifts up to your room with them. They will NOT take responsibility for anything, no matter how many thousands of dollars you spend with them. They won't even say they are sorry - they are too busy saying it's not their fault.

And by the way, your next month after that is spent in living hell while filing "informational claim reports" with Sandia and Police Reports with tribal police.

And then, when you get your decorations back after the wedding, which they have used some of for your wedding reception, along with some of their own, you will find that there are some missing, some broken, and they are not packed like you originally packed them. If they are fragile, don't expect them to be handled that way. It's not theirs, therefore it's not important I guess.

Previous problems we had - getting rooms for our guests was a horrendous pain! They promised us rooms, but forgot about a player's tournament - thus no rooms!

Overall, my experience has been exceedingly frustrating with Sandia. Although the location is beautiful, the rooms are nice, and the staff can be nice at times, the frustrations that I experienced I would not wish on anyone. Good luck.

I worked with Beth while planning my wedding here in May of this year. I really cannot say enough good things about her she was amazing! I planned the entire wedding from out of state so you can imagine how that was! Beth went above and beyond to help me get everything together! She set up mock tables and sent me pictures of different ways I could set everything up. She also met with us several times the week of the wedding to make sure we had everything we needed! It ended up raining on my wedding day so we were unable to use the patio like we really wanted, but that didn't matter because they still had a really nice inside area with great views that turned out really nice :) The staff that catered to us on the night of our wedding were amazing. From serving us at dinner to serving the cake, they did a GREAT job. So professional and courteous the entire time. Our wedding was a blast and all of our guests had so much fun! I highly recommend this venue and working with Beth!
