Perfect stay over 2 nights. In one of the pueblo suites that was new, very clean and quiet (located at the far west end) with 2 double beds, 2 nice sitting chairs and a corner fireplace. The only thing we did not like about our room was that the bath room sink area served also the frig and coffee maker area and held the only mirror in the entire suite.
Both early mornings, we went for a hike in the back hills, ranging from 3 - 6 miles. Then came down and had a wonderful breakfast at both the Artesian one morning and Mesa Vista, the local dive, across the highway where the locals ate the other morning. We enjoyed our private Kiva pool and spa treatments in one afternoon, particularly liked the Moore Mud therapy ; and the ladies did a great job. Also spent a few hours soaking in different mineral pools and using the sauna room during the other day. Had a good dinner at Artesian too. All staffs were very nice except for the rookie who checked us in, repeatly saying everything 2-3 times especially about their bathrobe policy. It's in the middle of no where. A great way to spend a couple of relaxing days!
