We came here for a couple 90 minute massages and LOVED our time here. The spa area is lovely with a little courtyard for relaxing afterwards. The changing area includes a sauna and showers with shoes/robes/toiletries provided. The staff was absolutely wonderful. My massage with Juniper was outstanding and every bit of relaxing that I had hoped for. She had a magic touch! The staff emphasized that the amenities of the spa and pool were included in our experience (post massage) which was nice, given we were not staying at the resort.

It’s a great oasis to escape to for a quick getaway! The service was exquisite and we felt so spoiled with the kind and generous service. They have the most beautiful pool and spa with a very pretty walkway with a koi pond. The rooms are also very accommodating with all you need. Highly recommended!

So great. The rooms are well insulated and there is very little outside noise that gets in. The salt water pool and hot tub are great and you leave soft and refreshed. There are so many beautiful spaces to enjoy and can't wait to see the ground when things are blooming. 10/10 coming back again soon. That staff is great!

Loved the friendliness of the staff, the ease of moving around the property, the tranquility of the place… I loved it all! My room was beautiful too. A huge jacuzzi in the room, beautiful garden view. The place seemed like it was made for me. Loved my trip.

Two girlfriends and myself wanted to do a weekend getaway somewhere relaxing. booking a stay with El Monte Sagrado was the best decision. They provided us with impeccable service, the ambiance was magical and the food was AMAAZINGGG. They were attentive to us the entire stay and even had a shuttle available 24/7 to take us, then pick us up from anywhere downtown and drive us back. The spa was beautiful and the services/ staff were wonderful. We will most definitely be back!

We love the hotel. The spa is wonderful. Hot tub is great after skiing. And just a short walk into town. The hotel has all of the amenities we need for a week and Taos!, New Mexico. This is our fourth year coming and we will definitely be back next year.

We spent a couple of nights at El Monte Segrado recently. Overall a nice stay - lovely grounds, pleasant check in, helpful staff, comfortable bed, and adequate space. Unfortunately, guests upstairs created quite a bit of noise while we were there - heavy footsteps and a barking dog until 10:30-11:00 pm and again at 8:30 am. I do wish hotels that accept dogs would segregate them in a specific area so that those of us without don't have our stay disturbed. We would probably stay here again but would definitely choose a different room - we found the Taos Mountain rooms just too noisy and disruptive for a restful stay.

The bones are here at the resort the problem is that the resort is really tired and filthy dirty. We moved to 3 different rooms during our stay and one was called the Kama Sutra (I am not lying) They have a very small staff for a very large property. Each room was extremely dirty and I couldn’t wait to check out. But, the food was delicious, the bar was ok, still dirty. The bartenders made us delicious mocktails. BTW adding mocktails to your menu would be a good idea. People are sober for various reasons and having options would have been nice. Bottom line I hope this hotel gets some new owners that have the vision to bring this beautiful property back to its glory. It truly would be an amazing spot if someone took the time to love it, and add some new paint, clean out the cobwebs and update the bathrooms etc.

We stayed here for one night due to my grandmother's funeral. I want to start off with the positives the staff was super helpful! The resort is beautiful. The pool and jacuzzi are beautiful. They also let us check out at 2 pm no additional charge the day of the funeral, Which is appreciated. The cons. The room had alot of issues and I think for the price this shouldn't of happened. Not clean, dusty, mold in rr around tub and holes in molding and walls etc. Also the heat kept going off and was not turning off. The sink would aggressively spray all over each time you used it. I have alot of family in Taos and I'm not sure Id refer them or if we will return.
