Quality with warmth. This is a well maintained first class property. The best most accommodating friendly staff! Especially the valet team. A beautiful property to stroll and enjoy the well planned landscaping with the mountains in the background. Easy walk to the Taos Plaza. The bar is one of my favorite watering holes. Well stocked and well done. My negative...

Awesome property with amazing rooms! The rooms were extremely nice with huge tub and fireplace. Comfy bed and direct tv! The pool and hot tub were supposed to be salt water but my eyes burned and the wife's brand new bathing suit bottoms faded from the high chlorine content in the hot tub. Very cool pool and hot tub that...

Even though I visit Taos every few years this was the first time I've stayed at El Monte Sagrado. This stunning resort style hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from town on an immaculately groomed 8 acre property. The rooms were beautifully appointed with southwestern accents, very comfortable bed, sunken tub, big screen TV and beautiful fireplace. The...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

I have been coming to El Monte for years - through several management changes. The last visit reminded me why I return. Beautiful grounds and rooms. Exceptional and distinct pool area.

Taos is known as a funky artist colony, and many of the hotels and inns are quaint but not luxurious. El Monte Sagrado is a new standard for this out of the way town. Very spacious, very upscale, very Southwestern all at the same time. We stayed in a Native American suite which was huge for two people. Our back...
