I have stayed at all of the other RCI exchanges in Ruidoso and Pinecliff is by far the friendliest and most welcoming. It's not a 5 star resort, but it doesn't pretend to be. (There are NO such places in Ruidoso!) The staff and manager are awesome. The condos are quiet and the grounds we'll maintained. I had a very good experience.

Just spent a week at Pinecliff Village. The photo on this site is NOT of Pinecliff Village and needs to be corrected. What a great time we had there. We had a second floor one-bedroom unit. It was spacious, clean and well furnished. Besides being a great place to stay, we have to compliment the staff. We got a bit lost when we got into Ruidoso, so we called the Pinecliff office for directions. Arthur answered the phone and not only gave us directions, but stayed on the phone until we arrived on the site. Thank you Arthur. We were greeted happily at check-in, by Katherine, and given a lot of information. We were told that there would be an 8:30 a.m. meeting at the clubhouse the next morning. We figured it was a sales pitch on the timeshare, but decided to attend anyway. To our surprise the meeting was not a sales pitch and was very informative. Coffee and pastry was served. The manager, Karen Morris gave us so much information about the town of Ruidoso and the surrounding area. She also told us that there would be tours to different interesting places during the week. All we had to do was be ready in our vehicle and follow her. We took advantage of two of these guided tours. The first one was a visit to the Spencer Theater. On arrival at the theater, we were led on a tour by one of the employees. She explained everything about the theater, from the marvelous acoustics to the hand blown Chihuly art. This was an amazing theater out in the middle of "nowhere." You will have to google it to find out all the details of this amazing place. But when you stay at Pinecliff Village, don't miss going there. The second tour we did, following Karen, was a trip to St. Joseph Mission. After visiting the Mission, Karen lead us to a wonderful little Mexican Cafe called Old Road Cafe. It was definitely on the old road. But to our surprise there was no sign on the restaurant and you could easily miss it and think it was just a lovely home along the side of the road. The food was authentic and the service was great. After a great lunch there we followed Karen to the "Heart of the Desert" Pistachio Farm. After taking the tour of the pistachio plant we enjoyed some wine tasting and other samples of fudge and other products they make, using the pistachio nut. Can you even imagine pistachio wine? There were other tours scheduled that week to the Bar J Ranch for dinner and a western show, and a few other places. After checking out of Pinecliff and getting to our next stop, I discovered that I had not completely cleared out the dresser drawer in our unit. Yes, I had left some clothing behind. I phoned Pinecliff and spoke to Catherine. She said not to worry that she would take care of it. A few days after we returned home, a package with my clothes arrived in the mail. A big thank you to the staff at Pinecliff. Thank you Karen, Mary, Catherine and Arthur for a wonderful stay. And we were never approached to buy into the timeshare. Make your next visit to Ruidoso a stay at Pinecliff Village. You will definitely enjoy it.

We had the wonderful experience of staying here while on a marriage retreat with Fort Bliss, and I would definitely recommend it to others. From the second we arrived, the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. They were friendly, accommodating, and fun! The unit we stayed in was very clean, comfortable, and we felt right at home. We were sad to have to leave when the weekend was over, and hope to be able to stay at Pinecliff Village again in the near future.

We found this through our RCI travel planning. It is an old facility. The two bedroom we had was updated somewhat in the living area and kitchen. The bedrooms needed paint on the walls and new carpet and the bathroom was very small and compared to a cheap motel. The staff and on sight residences were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating which made our stay better. We will probably not stay at this location again. I may be spoiled to a little nicer facility. The indoor pool was okay and the hot tub was very dated. With all said, it was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils.
