We spent 5 nights at the Monasterio in July 2012. After reading countless reviews, we decided on the Monasterio. We were a party of 3 adults, and most other hotels in the area had very small rooms. When we arrived, I made sure they knew that we wanted a large room with a terrace or balcony. (Reading through the reviews I found out that there were many styles & various sizes of oxygenated rooms.) I also showed them my VIP Expedia card, which I believe helped get us the presidential suite. Yes we were escorted to the finest room in the hotel (a major upgrade)! We made this beautiful suite our home for 5 nights. We truly felt like we were living in a castle. The presidential suite over looked one of two smaller courtyards. The room itself was amazing, oxygenated, very large & comfortable with sitting areas, private balcony and a beautiful bathroom. The entire length of the suite was all floor to ceiling windows that opened on to a beautiful courtyard, and the cascading hill above. We had sunshine in the late afternoon where we enjoyed sipping wine on our private deck. The service and the food were exceptional. We ate most of our night time meals in the bar restaurant by the fireplace. The breakfast in the courtyard is most memorable. You will just love the early morning fresh mountain air with the powerful warming sun shinning through at the high altitude. The coffee is excellent and you can enjoy either a very selective buffet or breakfast or order by menu - or both - your choice. There was always a classical musician playing live music during breakfast time..... Just beautiful. You will not be disappointed with this hotel. Although expensive, its worth every penny!
