Quiet beautiful retreat

Despite an odd check-in experience--the registration desk is in an office nowhere near the front of the hotel--I wish we could have spent longer! The decor is very different with high-end finishes and whimsical touches, like the giant suspended crystal, the 'anaconda' in the bar, and the sculptural logs in the outdoor fireplace. The staff was friendly, the room spacious and romantic, with a huge soaking tub and gas fireplace. We enjoyed coffee on our little patio looking out on a huge open space shaded by giant cottonwoods. It was SO quiet! We never heard a child. For us that's great--but suggests this isn't really a family place. $20 for parking seemed a little steep, but overall we felt the hotel was a good value. We'll definitely stay here again!

Great Surroundings.

The Hotel was very well maintained. Everything regarding the grounds and amenities were perfect. The staff was great until they found out my wife was a smoker. Then she & I were treated a bit like we were not good enough to be there. Weather I go with the Mountain rooms or suite I expect to be treated as if I'm a paying customer as I am financially well off of better than some that stay in the suites. When my wife was forced to smoke in an 8x10 area that was basically being used as a storage area and generally blocked off I was disappointed. I would suggest having the separated smokers area at least cleaned up and presented in as equally comfortable and tranquil fashion as the rest of the hotel. And staff should never act as judge and jury for any guest.

Great place, relaxing environment

It's on a beautiful 10 acre property, well manicured and landscaped. It's close enough to the main shopping area in Taos and easily driveable to other parts. The room we had was nicely decorated in a sothwest motif. Peaceful and serene, but many many amenities as well.

Luxury and Comfort in Taos

The grounds were beautiful, the decor and amenities exquisite. The beds were as comfortable as home! On cold Taos mornings, having the valet bring the car, already warm, was an absolute pleasure. After exploring Taos, it was so nice to soak away the day in the gorgeous bathtub! But I have to say that what made my stay so special was the staff-they were kind and gracious and went out of their way to show me around and make me feel welcome. Job well done-I will definitely come back!!!

Fantastic Getaway

Wow! If you're looking for a fantastic place to relax, look no further. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is friendly, and it's just a ten minute walk from downtown historic Taos. We can't wait to go again!

Top Rated! 5 Stars!

This magnificent Taos, New Mexico hotel is a MUST EXPERIENCE destination. As a married couple traveling with our 2 dogs, well experienced and spoiled by 4 and 5 star and other charming accommodations, we were surprised to find the El Monte Sacrado Living Resort & Spa [...], and found that this hotel truly raised the bar. It is fabulous! Consistently first rate customer service, beautiful design (the room decor is high luxury AND regional charm Taos, New Mexico charm), meticulously landscaped grounds with pools and southwestern sculptures, beautiful architectural and design detail, and delectable gourmet cuisine including regional specialties. The hotel is cheerfully dog friendly. The bed and shower alone are worth the stay because both will expand what you belive is even possible in luxury, comfort & design. If all this were not enough, the hotel boasts a revolutionary green/sustainable water system for the lush grounds, is full of original art, and would be appropriate for business, families, a romantic getaway, special occasions or even a healing retreat. Highest marks! We hated to leave!

Be sure to schedule enough time to spend and dine at the hotel. The temptation sometimes is to use the hotel to sleep and as a pit stop, but you will want time to relax and enjoy this wonderful hotel and beautiful grounds.

Best hotel in Taos!

Upon entering the property of El Monte Segrado resort, my husband and I could already see why it was so highly recommended. From the prompt valet service to the knowledgeable concierge, we were efficiently and respectfully introduced to the resort's amenities. On top of that, our room was perfection! The interior design concept is that of modern melded with rustic (yes, it is possible!) and it worked flawlessly. Although we were only there for one evening, the resort staff made us feel like family. The couple we traveled with incurred a small leak in their bathroom, which was immediately attended to (while the resort dining staff found out and comped us our entire breakfast). Both my husband and myself, upon checkout, regretted that we had not planned for a longer stay. In short, I cannot recommend El Monte Segrado more!!
