I wasn't sure how the stay would be as there were mixed reviews when I was investigating where to stay.
Well the place appears to be in the process of being refurbished as some rooms are being worked on.
We are a party of 4 with 2 adults and 2 teenage grandkids. I got the basic room. I chose this because of the proximity to the Plaza and the price was so great.
As it turns out everything is new or nearly new. We have a huge bedroom with a nice living room, dinette, small kitchen fully stocked with everything necessary for cooking.
The Plaza is maybe a 7 minute walk. There is shuttle service to wherever one needs to go within a radius but the walk is really nice. The Santa Fe School of Cooking that we will go to is also within walking distance as are grocery stores.
We needed extra blankets and had them within minutes.
I highly recommend the Villas to anyone and we will stay here again.

... round the area - flat rooved buildings, mostly a shade of red clay or earthy colours. There were many tourist trinket shops, and many eateries as this is such a visited site. We had a coffee in a cafe but headed back fairly early, as we planned to stop at the Vivác winery on the way (we had seen it was open!!!) and we were having an early dinner before the Pink Martini concert that Carole had cleverly got tickets for!!! ...
We move on to Santa Fe to stay with Kristen Van Horn, who is the daughter of our friends Barb and Rick Van Horn in State College, Pa.
