El Monte Sagrado in Taos, New Mexico

Taking a cue from the Native Americans, a culture that embraces tranquility and the gifts of nature, El Monte Sagrado offers an awakening experience that is both surreal and serene. With charming guest rooms, suites and spacious casitas, this Taos, New Mexico marvel is surrounded by mountainous beauty that further promotes a calming effect on those fortunate enough to find themselves here. The intimate chambers, with their hand-painted walls, local artists' creations, delightful kiva fireplaces, tandem soaking tubs, and private courtyards or patios, are considered to be mini capsules of luxury where the world fades away once the door latches behind you. Quaint, charming, and just a couple of blocks from Taos Plaza, this resort is a part of the Lifestyle collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.

This adobe-style sanctuary is home to the delightful De la Tierra dining destination, whose menu displays cuisine with global and indigenous influences coupled with a setting illuminated by the soft glow of candles. The Gardens offers both a casual menu and setting, while Anaconda Bar features live entertainment, a mix of refreshing cocktails, and a socially vibrant ambiance centered around an amazing 1100-gallon saltwater aquarium. The hotel's Living Spa should rise to the top of anyone's list when yearning for a much-needed massage or body treatment. Taos is often thought of as an enclave for artists, which it most certainly is, but there is more to the story as well. Fly fishing, llama trekking, and skiing at the nearby Taos Ski Valley are among the many recreational activities, but culinary lessons, wine tasting and pottery classes should not be overlooked either. A closer look and you will discover that El Monte Sagrado strikes the perfect balance between a luxurious getaway and a culturally rich retreat.

I can't say enough about this place. Everything here was perfect and beautiful. I stayed in the New Mexico Casita Suite. It had a King bed, huge soaking tub with rain shower with invigorating pressure. The living area had a gas fire place and a large screen TV. We also had a kitchen with dining area, and everything we needed if we wanted to eat here. It also had a private patio overlooking the beautiful grounds. There are so many wonderful treasures at this hotel it would take to long to tell about them here. Global suites are lavishly decorated with art, furniture and textiles from around the world. The hotel is on a major street three blocks from the plaza, but when on the grounds, you would never know it. Very quiet and private, The Anaconda bar was very impressive too with the life sized anaconda slithering up the wall. This hotel must be seen to be believed. Heated salt water pool and spa with a Biolariumon for reflection. Great hotel to get away from it all. Parking is ample. Even thought it is close to the plaza, the hotel offers a free shuttle service to and from town. Plus you get a Local Treasure Discount Brochure that gets you 15% off many museums, shops and restaurants. The hotel is also pet friendly! I recommend everyone stay here!

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the spacious room with a jacuzzi tub that had shutters that opened. The swimming pool and hot tub were nice and there is a peaceful area to walk in right there with lots of vegetation We ate a meal in the Anaconda bar. Food was good, service great and bartender was friendly and fun. We had breakfast in the dining room one morning and that wasn't good in several ways. We both had fruit and my daughter had a bagel and I had an English muffin. Also, 2 cups of coffee. I believe it was $24.00. None of the fare was remotely worth that much. Also, when a waiter poured us water, some was spilled on the floor. I brought it to the attention of 2 employees and it was never wiped up. One other thing about the hotel is that some of the furniture in the room needs repair. A lamp was practically broken in half with cord showing and the armoire I used didn't close easily, it had to be forced. The registration people were the best, escorting you to your room. Also, they had valet parking and a shuttle, both a great help. All in all , a great place where I would stay again

Just off Kit Carson St. in Taos, you barely know it's there; however, when you find it, it's like being in a beautiful Pueblo and garden atmosphere with first class service. Our room was fully accommodated with a large garden tub, separate shower, and gas fire place. Our balcony was a quiet place overlooking a grassy knoll and gardens. Pet friendly. Restaurant has excellent food and service. Vice nice gift shop too. A short walk to the Taos town square, where you'll find coffee shops, ethnic stores, and a wonderful open market on Saturday including live music. Artsy, classy and fun. A real one-of-a-kind resort and town.

There are some great things about this place but it's also really lacking in the resort and luxury department which is what they self proclaim. I could see this being a great value for rooms priced under $200, but for anything more than that there needs to be some upgrades and attention to detail. Well I don't think this place qualifies as a resort the grounds of this hotel are gorgeous, and well manicured. The decor in the lobby and throughout the exterior are beautiful. For a resort or even luxury the reception is non existent. It would be nice if they offered a sweet, baked good, cocktail, drink or anything besides the ice water and waxy green apples. I came to reception on the morning of our stay to see if we could grab something to little to nibble with our coffee on but was told there was only full service sit down breakfast available in their empty restaurant. Avian just not what is on par with other "resorts". This is another over looked detail that would be an inexpensive detail in guest satisfaction. The valet is complimentary but that is because the parking lot is about 25 yards away from the entrance and spots are in threes, meaning they sandwich cars in between to make more room. But you also have the option to self park in the same lot which makes it a little bit of a fiasco. It was not busy and a few steps from the entrance so we were going to self park but If you do self park be prepared to be harassed. We were told where to park by one attendant who was very nice, but then when we parked another attendant asked what we were doing and then asked us to get back in and move our car again. It was a little annoying. We stayed in one of the global suites over the weekend which I don't recommend. Our rate was $452 for one night. All though it was large and the beds were pretty the rest of the decor was outdated and tacky for my taste.The hotel was booked with a wedding for the weekend so rooms were limited and we were put in the China themed room. It was decorated exactly like your typical Chinese restaurant and very dark. Besides the TV there wasn't much else to hook up your phone or music or electronics. The bathrooms were large and had a decent sized tub but the shower head and toiletries quality were on par with a sub standard motel. One of the lotions was half used but like I said they sucked so who cares. Again, not luxury or resort. These are the details that make hotels resorts and luxury. We wanted to ice but were told by the front desk there was not an ice machine and house keeping would bring some by, an hour later and no ice we eventually left for dinner. Our fireplace didn't work, I'm assuming the pilot light went out but after just having maintenance come over to fix a loud hammering sound coming from the heater we didn't want to go through the hassle of calling them to fix it. The gym had the most basic elliptical machines I've ever seen, and there could have been more perks better equipment if your going to say your a luxury facility. Other resorts ive stayed in they had water bottles along with cucumber water, headphones, magazines, and new equipment with TV's on each one. If your going to call your self a resort and charge for it you should have resort amenities not basic ones. The living spa was very nice, and had great attention to detail. I got the feeling that this was separately run from the hotel but either way more of this is what I expect from a resort. The pool and hot tub are about 75 ish yard from the spa, but they had a lovely sitting room with might leaf tea, nicer showers with amazing hair and body products. A two person sauna and steam room. The reception was so accommodating. I would come back here for a treatment So if you stay here make sure to book a basic room, or I've heard that their mountain rooms are also nice. If these are not available and you have to spend more do it else where, or book a sweet air bnb.

Wow, wow, wow! What a tremendous disappointment! I booked four nights at this hotel, and checked out after one. My wife wanted to sleep in the car rather than stay here! OK, here's the story. I did my normal internet searches for the "best" hotel in Taos. This was the only one that was rated 4 stars. The off-season price was over $300 per night, which was fine. We arrived late in the evening and checked into our suite. IT WAS FILTHY! Everything was insanely old, dirty, musty and smelly, including the area rug that was literally rotting into threads and never, ever, ever has seen a vacuum cleaner. Spiders and bugs on the floor (which they said was caused by excessive rain to the area before our arrival). We called the front desk and requested a different suite. Now it's 10:30pm, we had just driven for more than 12 hours, and yes, you guessed it, the second "suite" was worse. My wife could write her name in the dust on the bed's headboard. She made housecleaning come to the room and vacuum the filth, at least in the bedroom where we were going to sleep. It was chilly out, so we attempted to use the gas fireplace. No workee. Called maintenance, they sent someone who got it going, but five minutes after he left it stopped again. I completely shut it off, hoping that we would not become affixiated while we slept. One of the windows in the room was open, and the mechanism was broken so that you could not shut it. Plenty of bugs and spider webs around the window. The hideous wallpaper and decor was from the 70’s, almost everything in the room did not work, including the phone in the bedroom. The bed was lumpy and old, and you sank down almost to the floor when you laid in it. My wife went to look at a third room, which was not a suite in their main building. She said that the room was better, however she noticed the two ladies in the room across the hall had a little “yapper” dog in their room, so moving to that room wasn’t an option for us. Although my wife wanted to leave and sleep in the car, I convinced her to tough it out. After spending a horrible night in the “room from hell”, we checked out early the next morning. The front desk lady who checked us out was very understanding. You could tell that this wasn’t her first rodeo. She made several phone calls and we finally booked a room in a bed and breakfast, which only had one room available for one night. Bottom line, our trip to Taos, NM was reduced to two nights instead of four. We ended up driving to Santa Fe (1.5 hours away) for the remainder of our trip. In all fairness, the outside grounds of El Monte Sagrado Resort was very nicely landscaped. Every staff member that I dealt with was understanding and accommodating. Their “main” buildings (NOT THEIR SUITES) are evidently newer and better, but evidently those rooms book up very fast. Either way, in my humble opinion, this is far from a four star hotel.
