I have been going to Ojo for years: at first when I was just visiting New Mexico and then several times since I moved to Santa Fe. It is an amazing place. If you want some extra privacy, choose one of the Cliff Side Suites (they each have a private tub in your back patio area), microwave and small fridge, kiva fireplace and lots of comfort. All of the main pools are amazing - take your time and enjoy. If you want to be there when it's less busy to soak, start soaking early am because later in the day many locals and other tourists come just to soak so it gets a little busier.
Anyway, it is hands down one of the most relaxing place I have ever been and coming home from there, I continued to be relaxed and continued napping :) (I will say that I prefer massages at 10,000 waves in Santa Fe but their other treatments are great.)
