Canon del Rio Retreat & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2014

We stayed only one night at Cañon del Rio during our Spring Break trip to New Mexico. I wish it could have been more. After a day of walking and climbing at Bandelier National Park we arrived in Jemez Springs thinking we would hit one of the hot springs in the area for a soak. When we saw the hot tub right out back we asked ourselves - why drive? We stayed in the Navaho Room which was very comfortable. We actually had the whole place to ourselves that night and enjoyed a quiet evening sitting by the fireplace. As others have mentioned, breakfast was great! We were enjoying our morning conversation with Dagna so much I almost forgot we had things to do and places to go and we needed to hit the road. Highly recommended.

Canon del Rio went above and beyond exceeding our expectations. The owners were extremely helpful and a pleasure to meet. The breakfast was fantastic and offered a nice selection. Rooms were a great size, clean and offered a nice view of the court yard. They were also equipped with basic essentials such as shampoo, conditioner and body soaps. We did the couples manage and loved it! Great quiet atmosphere and the girls were very experienced. Extremely welcoming place we are already planning our next trip!

Room Tip: We booked the Navajo Room and LOVED it!

Canon del Rio, filled with Southwest artworks, hospitality, and fantastic breakfasts, is a hideaway in Jemez Springs well worth visiting. The rooms are great, with access to sauna and hot tub, and the mountain views are spectacular. We had a couples massage, which was expert and reasonable. This place is a treat. Spend some time there.

Room Tip: We loved "The Apache."

This is truly a peaceful and calming place to unwind and relax! We enjoyed great conversation with B and B owner, Dagna, who served amazing breakfasts and had great tips on places to visit! Our couples massages were fantastic! Innkeeper and massage therapist, Kristi, with her knowledge of acupuncture and Chinese herbs went the extra mile in helping my husband with his chronic back pain - she even provided valuable take away information! This place is not to be missed - so charming...it even smelled great and is so beautifully decorated! We did not want to leave!!

My husband and I went there just after New Years. It was a lovely treat. Dagna's incredible breakfasts and absolute charming personality made us feel like we were truly apart of the place. A great place to be yourself and to relax ..its a shame that like other reviews that the evening dining options were a little disappointing but its just a small village... We did a lot of hiking. My husband got the romance package that included a couples massage and a foot massage. We were newbies in getting massages so we weren't sure about what to expect ..our massage therapists made us feel so comfortable..it was truly a therapeutic and rejuvenating experience. My husband was planning the next visit before we left. We took advantage of the sauna and the meditation room with lovely views of the canyon; the hot tub was being renovated at the time but it sounds like its going to be awesome!! We stayed in the Apache the king size bed was memory foam ..and the linens felt luxurious. I would say that the room is right next to the Great Room ..so you could hear the comings and goings of the other guests...it didn't really bother us too much, but we might chose a different room next time. Cool place.

Room Tip: In the review I mentioned Apache is located closest to the great room. Sometimes you could here the...

Jemez Springs is a wonderful little place, and Canon del Rio is a wonderful way to experience it. It really is nestled down in the canyon, with impressive red rock cliffs rising from the charming little Jemez creek behind the property, with lots of cottonwoods to enhance the effect. But the best thing about it is John and Dagna's hospitality and down home charm. They are naturals, and their B and B is truly a treasure. We've been there three times (twice in the winter) and we've always come away vowing to return for longer. Do be warned, however, that there isn't much choice of local eating establishments or night life. It's a little town, with hot springs and hiking to compensate for its shortcomings in other areas.

I was fortunate to receive a gift certificate for a stay at Canon del Rio and recently spent a week end there. The owners, Dagna and John, go all out to help you feel indulged and pampered. Dagna's fabulous breakfasts (heartier than other B&Bs I have ever been to) and her warm, engaging personality makes everyone feel welcome. Kristy, resident massage therapist, gives great foot and all over body massages, with great care given to figuring out just what is best for you. The outdoor setting is natural landscape and the indoor great room and fireplace are warm and inviting. All rooms look out onto a pool and there is a sauna and meditation room in the massage area. Beds are very comfortable. The village and ruins of Jemez Springs provide charm and fun places to visit. I definitely will be a regular visitor.
