I must say, the property was beautiful. Lots of summer blooms and color. We stayed over the weekend and it was very quiet. Within walking distance to downtown. Lovely rooms, gas fireplace balcony. Open walkways building to building, but all are covered. Downside in the room, with AC running, once I entered the bathroom to shower (family was still asleep),... More

Yes, I am reading the recent reviews and am not surprised. I have stayed there twice. The first time was before Marriot's name started appearing on their website--the stay was amazing. Service and food was excellent, attention to detail was spot on, and the overall feel of the place made one want to return. Last time I stayed Marriot's name... More

We stayed for 3 nights in early July 2014. Grounds and pool area were nice and it is close to town. Those are the good things. The hidden fees, the noisy rooms, and indifferent staff are the not so good things about the place. This was our last stop on a long vacation to New Mexico, stayed out other "lower"... More

Any fees should be disclosed when you make your reservations and if they were not, we need to know so we can address that issue. Please allow us... More

We stayed at El Monte Sagrado this past weekend with high expectations from it's 4 star rating, description and pictures. The room was clean, unique and lovely (Taos Mountain) and the grounds are absolutely beautiful (best part of the experience). The pool and hot tub were also wonderful. The down side is the Restaurant and all the extra fees, which... More

I couldn't decide whether to rate this hotel average or very good. The grounds are unique, serene and beautiful. We enjoyed the setting of the hotel. We booked a Mountain View room that was nicely appointed and clean. It looks just as the photos depict. The 'bathroom' can be completely open to the room (except for the toilet) or shut... More

We stayed just one night at El Monte Sagrado in July 2014, and had an excellent experience! The grounds are beautiful, a really serene setting. My husband and I stayed in one of the casitas, Tibet, and slept with a window open to listen to the waterfall just outside. The décor was exotic and charming, luxurious without feeling formulaic. We... More

I'm a Platinum Premier Marriot member. My wife and I arrive late in the evening and were hungry and tired. First, I was using Marriot rewards points to book the room. The gentleman at the front desk seemed disturbed I was using rewards points. He informed us that we were upgraded to a suite because he didn't have a room... More

This was one of the finest properties we have ever booked. I don't think I've seen a hotel that was more expensively put together. The room was very good looking with a fireplace, large bathroom, interesting furnishings and a small patio. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained, as well as, an important part of the setting. The staff was... More

We arrived two hours ahead of the "check-in" time on Thursday, July 3. My husband is a Premier Marriott member. Kessler Properties just uses Marriott to get bookings. Marriott should do themselves a favor and send someone out to look at this property. As a previous reviewer noted in their review, room was dirty - linens we discovered later had... More

We stayed in the Global Suite and it magnificent! The living room was nice and cozy and the two bedrooms were perfect for our family. It was nice to have a feeling of another country. There was a minor problem of the hot tub not heating and the doors not locking, but the hotel staff is quick to fix the... More
