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.

Had a nice meal outside at the Santa Fe Bite(formerly Bobcat Bite) near the Capital Complex. Beautiful day, colors and just all around enjoyable experience.
... and styles, thus creating the "Santa Fe style". Today Santa Fe is a vibrant cultural, historical and artistic tourist destination.
After obtaining directions from a friendly local we eventually found our way to the Touchstone gallery. I was in heaven; on display were lots of fossils and minerals, triceratops horns, mammoth tusks, and many large mineral display pieces. I wandered around the gallery for several minuets, like a confused kid in ...
... Mexico, which is as diametrically opposed to the one in Nevada as could possibly be the case. Las Vegas NM is a fabulous historic little town with over 900 historic buildings on the registry and is also a place where Butch Cassidy worked as a bartender. We arrived and parked up in the quaint little plaza and headed off for a little wander around and also to find somewhere to have a spot of lunch. We came across a restaurant called El Rialto which stocked an ...
... nodding oil wells. We followed the road south on the east side of the river of the same name (this was dry and sandy about 50-100 metres or so wide) for about 5 miles and then crossed back to the west side of the river at an old WW2 style bridge.
We spied a signposted road to a canyon so we took it. This crossed the dry river bed and then turned north following faint old signs to Crow Canyon and the parking area (beside a gas head) for the 'Main Panel' ...
... trail looped among petrified wood deposits and badland hills of bluish bentonite clay. The stripy colouring amazing and the badlands themselves impressive with their elephant 'skin'. Sensational and a sight not seen by myself before. I love the desert landscape and so interesting here with all the different formations. Large plateaus and mesas of different sizes. Colouring varied from hues of grey to the purple and pink tones and to the reds when we crossed the interstate ...
