Taos wedding - El Monte Sangrado?

Hi All,

We have stayed here twice and loved the property, but not the service. We're planning out wedding and need some ideas!!! Does anyone have a better venue idea? We need a property that can accomodate about 25 people. thanks!!

I think that we might need additional information. El Monte Sagrado is a world apart from every thing else in Taos. Nothing else in Taos will come close to matchimng its glitz or its construction costs.

I also agree that I was dissatisfied by the service at El Monde Sagrado. I had a special holiday meal there and found the meal itself rather "generic." I also agree that it still has a higher profile and general standard than any other place in the area.

Perhaps you might find a small Bed and Breakfast that would work with you, help you find private catering for a meal of your choice, provide a lovely outdoor setting and more intimacy for you event.

I know Santa Fe better than Taos and can't suggest a specific place, but perhaps someone else here onTA can.

Absolutely, regarding the property, but I'm worried about the service. TA is definitely mixed with reviews. Here are some examples...valet, waited for almost 20 minutes at times. Meals were very inconsistent. The bar, it was obvious that the staff had local friends they were serving and neglecting guests. the fish tank in the bar was filthy last year when we were there...a little thing, but a big one. Thanks for the feedback...keep it coming :)

Thank you. Yes, we've considered staying and having guests stay at el Monte but having the reception elsewhere...ideas for that would be greatly appreciated.

Several B&B's offer full wedding services -- including 4-star accomodations. You can try Hacienda del Sol 866-333-4459 http://www.taoshaciendadelsol.com and the Inn on La Loma Plaza (800) 530-3040

http://www.vacationtaos.com for starters. Most B&B's in town can accomodate small weddings and can arrange catering, etc. You can call around using the Trip Advisor listings and might just be surprised at what's available.

A potential caterer to use is Manna. (505) 604-7889. Brett House Catering also does weddings 575.776.1919.
