Looking for a fantastic resort in Taos, New Mexico? El Monte Sagrado is the perfect place! The resort is only 3 blocks from Taos Plaza, but feels so private and peaceful. From the moment we arrived, we felt relaxed and everything was taken care of.
The staff at El Monte Sagrado welcomed us and invited us to sit down in the reception area while they checked us into our room. We were offered a drink and they answered any questions we had about the property. They were ready to help with any activity or plan we wanted to make.
Our suite was perfect and spacious: a quiet 2 bedroom suite with a large living room/dining room area and a private back patio. We were there in between the winter and summer seasons, so it was rather quiet. It was one of their international suites, designed in a Japanese style. El Monte Sagrado is dog friendly, and our golden retriever Oso was very welcome there.
The on-site restaurant is fantastic and easily the best meal we had in Taos, and maybe the best in New Mexico! Absolutely delicious food, modern with a Southwestern twist, served impeccably and quickly. Dinner was great, and breakfast was also top notch. We loved their Benedicts: both the Salmon Benedict and the regular Eggs Benedict were phenomenal.
It was hard to leave El Monte Sagrado, and we just wanted to stay a little longer and absorb the peace and serenity of the place. Every detail was looked after and it was such a quiet time of year that it felt very private. It’s perfect for a family but also for a romantic getaway or a ski vacation. But we had to get along to Cortez, Colorado and see Mesa Verde National Park, which we’ll be covering in an upcoming post, so stay tuned…
