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.

This was an excellent location for us to walk in a nice area (more residential ) into town. It was also good because a shuttle stops at the hotel and takes one directly up in the mountains to the ski area. The grounds at the El Monte are very well maintained and the room was clean. We stayed in the Navajo suite which was spacious and we enjoyed the balcony and ability to have fresh air in the room. The staff at the front desk were all very helpful and seemed proud of the resort and making the guests happy. Very friendly and accommodating to dogs as well.

We love this place. The grounds are amazing with great trees and mountain views. If you want to walk around and enjoy nature without hiking this is a great hotel for you. Rooms are wonderful as well. We have a recently renovated room #3 and loved it. Fireplace in the living room, comfortable bed, ginormous walk in shower. It has a TV but who watches TV anymore? Wifi was great. Staff- They really want you to have a great experience. We needed a few thing upon arrival (phone was broken, more pillows, and extra hangers) and we literally had 3 different people at our door within 30 minutes of showing up. Food- We love the restaurant and probably ate their 10 times in a week. Taos has some wonderful dining options, but the food at El Monte is among the best. Spa- My wife is a spa enthusiast. She has probably been to over 40 spas in her life and the El Monte is her favorite. That's as high a compliment as I can pay a spa. I like it as well and had a facial and massage. Good times. Pet Friendly- They love your dog. Location- You are close enough to walk to Taos but they have a driver and car available if you want someone to drop you off. A few times my wife would want to shop or go to town and I wanted to stay in so she would just have the car drop her off.

We went to Taos for a few days away from home. We had a very comfortable room. It was well maintained and furnished with southwestern style furniture. The service in the hotel was great. We were shown to our room. The valets were always friendly and helpful. We had a soaking tub and separate shower. The grounds are beautiful. I used the pool and hot tub which were very nice. They were located next to a greenhouse area so there were lots of plants. It was a great place for a get away.

First impression of El Monte Sagrado...lovely entrance, lovely grounds, excellent service from the valet who also brought my bags to my room and even got me a bag of ice. I first checked out the pool area and found it very small but nice...and completely overrun by young children. Noting the pool occupancy limit posted on the wall, there were many more people (children and adults) in the pool than permissible. Two adults (without children) were trying unsuccessfully to enjoy the hot tub...and soon left. My room...a Native American Suite...was large, adequately furnished, basically comfortable and functional...but it just seemed a bit worn and tired. Mostly, my three-night stay had several troubling service-related issues. First, I was walking through the common areas and was about to intersect an employee at a crossing point. She specifically sped up and deliberately stepped in front of me at the intersection, just to get in front of me! I said a bit loudly "that was rather rude!" but she completely ignored me. Secondly, when I first checked into my room, there was no soap and only white washcloths and towels. While removing my makeup, I (naturally) got some on the hand towel. The next day, a black washcloth and a small bar of soap appeared...but why weren't those items there to begin with?! Thirdly, on my second night, I wanted a bucket of ice; I would have been happy to get it myself but I saw nowhere to do so. I called Guest Services and no one answered...I called Room Service and no answered...I called the Front Desk and no one answered...repeated the same process. Finally, someone answered the phone and I made my request...and waited...and waited...and waited...nearly 40 minutes. So, I tried calling answer. Now, I was just ticked off so I got dressed and went down to the Front one was there! I walked over to the restaurant and saw an employee with a bag of ice. I asked if it was for me and it was...but he was clearly put out at my request...for ice! a hotel! Fourth, two large complimentary (from what I understand) bottles of water are provided in one's room each day. The bottles required a bottle opener (or at least I did) but there was none...and, given the service issues I had already encountered at this point, I was not going to start a calling marathon again. Finally, on my last day, the manager was in my room (see below) and he said there was supposed to be a bottle opener with the coffee making supplies, and he did bring me one. But, at that point, Housekeeping had already serviced my room three times and they never noticed the bottle opener was missing?! Better yet, don't provide bottles of water that require one. Fifth, I wanted some extra pillows and a blanket so I used the items from the large zippered bag in my top shelf of my closet (generally for the sofa bed, I presume). Each day, Housekeeping put the items back in the bag and back in the, everyday, I had to get them back out. If a guest is using them, wouldn't a reasonable person just put them back on the bed so they are readily accessible?! Lastly, on my final day there, I returned to my room around 6:30 p.m. and found that Housekeeping had not been there at all, even through I had left my room around 12:15 p.m. My bed was a mess, there were wet towels on the bathroom floor, my coffee supplies were depleted, my trash cans were full (including Brie cheese rinds from my breakfast!), etc. I called the Front Desk and they said they would send someone I waited...and waited...and waited. Finally, I went down to the Front Desk and complained again. The manager returned to my room with me and replenished my coffee supplies and brought me a bottle opener. He said someone would be there shortly to clean my I waited...and waited...and waited again. Finally, I just gave up and requested a refund of my "resort fee," which was done. And what exactly is this "resort fee" for?! I know a lot of hotels are trying to charge this now as a way to increase revenue without increasing room rates but, yes, some of us do notice it. This is NOT a resort...there are no tennis courts, no golf course, nothing that makes this a resort. There is an extremely small pool area which, as I mentioned above, I was unable to use on the three separate occasions I checked it out due to overcrowding. But that hardly justifies a "resort fee"...especially one of $25 per day. No way... I really wanted to like this hotel but my four-day stay was a big disappointment and, if I returned to Taos, I would definitely stay elsewhere.

There are two things I have done at El Monte Segrado. First, I had drinks during happy hour and second, I had breakfast twice. Both were great. The drinks were great but a little on the pricy side. The breakfast was great but also expensive which is expected as most hotels are.
