Every staff members we met was smiling and friendly. If we needed something they quickly assisted. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. The food and drinks were well prepared and quite delicious.

Amazing, I would definitely come back again! Gorgeous estate and the room was perfect. LOVED the bath tub!

Bathroom with walk-in shower was horrible no room around the sink. Shower leaked on the floor and curtain shower was mildewed - disgusting. Beds very uncomfortable.

El Monte Sagrado was the perfect accommodations for our family while in Santa Fe. The rooms were spacious with well-appointed bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was well-stocked and fresh. The personnel was quite welcoming and accommodating. I appreciated the texting communications upon our arrival and their effort to meet our needs immediately.

Beautiful resort with a spectacular room overlooking the grounds. Texting for “services” worked excellently the one time we used it.

Really really nice one off hotel! The only one like it in the country. Not too far from historic downtown district, we drove, but staff told us it’s a 10 minute walk.

Love the place. Very romantic spot for a couple.

Great property and very courteous staff. Rooms were just a little dark but very clean and spacious.

Excellent place I would definitely recommend to my friends and aquaintances. The casitas are a must, plenty of space with even an outdoor patio with a beautiful fountain. The Argentina casita, wao!!! Service is top of the line. Super relaxing experience! I can't remember the name of the front desk lady, but thank you! You are amazing!

The indoor pool and spa was great. Fun, good bar, good bar menu, good breakfast. Overall, a grand slam

A beautiful setting combined with friendly, responsive service made our stay memorable. We will be back!

We stayed in this hotel after camping for four days as we thought it would be a great place for some R and R, around 930 at night one of my party was talking on the phone on the property and was assaulted and experienced an attempted mugging in plain view of the bell desk, no one came to help and he would've been assaulted further if not for another guest returning to the property at the same time and their car scared off the attackers. The hotel's response to this event was simply a statement just to say that it was unfortunate. The staff was extremely rude when dealing with my questions , The assistant manager was evasive and brash, the human resources manager tried to get us to sign legal documents in the middle of the night, and the general manager thinks that an apology is an OK resolution for this matter. The property is nice however if you care for the safety of your family and your guest as well as expect the staff at ahotel with a rating this high to treat you appropriately , this is not the place for you .

The hotel has is quite lovely -- beautiful grounds, very nice rooms, and good facilities. The staff was helpful. The value was good. One criticism is that the spa wasn't up to the same high standards. They had no one to help, no one to stock items, and overall the facility not very well appointed. In addition, I find the parking charge excessive given that you could park the car yourself. To their credit, the valets who were very attentive would drive you to town center and to restaurants if you requested.

Excellent! Very nice amenities especially the pool and grounds. Loved the yoga.

Loved the complimentary yoga on the weekend. The site and the rooms are beautiful. Great location - just a few blocks from downtown Taos.

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!

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.

The photos in the website show how beautiful is the place but when you are there, it is much more! Great details, great staff, just special. Thank you!
