El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa
Nice, relaxing hotel, good location, great staff!
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grounds of this location are beautiful (and this was in spring before anything bloomed!), peaceful, and calming. The food at the hotel restaurant/bar was good as well. Fireplaces in the room is a nice touch.

Very Good8.0
Nice facility, but apparently very understaffed. Valet staff were slow bringing bags to our room upon check-in. We reminded staff of our request for a roll-out bed for our six year old daughter at check-in, and waited approximately four hours for the bed to arrive. After the first night of our two night stay, we left early the next morning to explore the area and returned to our room after 3pm to find that housekeeping staff still had not made up the room. Upon checking out, rather than waiting for valet staff to take our bags, I took care of our bags myself, but there were no luggage carts available. Service staff were friendly but seemed overwhelmed during our mid-week stay despite seemingly low occupancy.

Great hotel, fantastic service, awesome pool. The resturant was closed the night we stayed, but the bar food was really good.

Really satisfactory place!
It was amazing. The overall interior of the hotel was awesome, and also the quality of our room was incredible. Distance from the downtown plaza is really closed. The people in the front desks are very friendly and nice. If I am gonna visit Taos again, there is no doubt that I will stay in this hotel again.
