My wife, 4-year-old son, and I stayed at El Monte Sagrado in late January 2016. We stayed for 2 nights while we went skiing at nearby Taos Ski Valley. Overall, our stay at El Monte was very good. We are repeat customers of the hotel and very much enjoy the property. The hotel was purchased in September 2015 by Heritage... More

Complex is the perfect way to describe this property. It's 7-9 acres of lodging, restaurant, convention center, bar, hot tub, gardens and all are very nice. The bacon mac & cheese is a must but beware the green chili on top is quite hot. Our room (#2) was very close to everything. The concrete floor was a bit chilly in... More

We stayed in one of the Casitas and the service is excellent specially the service tha the Spa center provided us that was second to none. The service at the restaurant was really good. The only complaints were with the Casitas I think they should have some area rugs because the brick floors are really cold in winter and thought... More

It was a weak start having to wait to register and issues with our reservation that was no fault of ours...but the staff made up for it with a nicer room upgrade! The grounds were amazing! The spa was tucked away that was well designed with a relaxing ambiance. We were told Johnny Depp loves staying there and hangs out... More

So, we got a really nice room (they all are) in a wonderful setting and we really enjoyed the space. The price of the room if you can get it through the hotel itself is worth the visit. Do NOT use a third party reservation as their prices are up to 50% higher. Service was just OK. Don't believe what... More

We have owned a condo in Taos for 10 years and visit here frequently. There are many outstanding local dining options with authentic food and wonderful service. This is not one of them.

We booked a short stay at the property recently having heard good things about it and read positive reviews on Trip Advisor. What we found was generally disappointing considering the room rates.

Having checked out early from a very disappointing hotel in Ojo Caliente, I was hoping for something outstanding to end my trip to NM. This hotel got everything right. My wife and I stayed in a casita away from the main building - the room was unique and romantic. Despite the rustic feel it was luxurious, with a comfortable bed,... More
