This was essentially a revisit having spent a delightful week at El Pueblo in the 80's with the kids. Our annual TAOS trips now involve my wife and I spending the first 3 days of the trip alone and the kids joining us with their kids; total 14 in all, for the following week of skiing in a property of their choice to handle the group. The room we were assigned, 103, suited our needs with no complaints and we agree with the previous reports concerning cleanliness, comfort, etc... Em and Gastone saw to the front desk and took their management duties with a sincere professional attitude towards pleasing their guests.
A major plus was the breakfast....picture an astonishing assortment of offerings to please and a facility made up of nooks and crannies to sit and enjoy your breakfast; and without any hassle...I commented on it to the gal in charge and she asserted that getting up at 5am each day was the reason it worked so well.
All in all it was a delightful stay and when it came time to pick the kids and their 7 boys at ABQ on Saturday am we knew the peace and quiet was over. A $650 grocery bill at Costco on the way back sealed it...and of course we stopped at Gabriel's Restaurant on the way up as we always do coming and going.
This was also a certified homerun because the evening they got here we got a foot of snow on top of the excellent base in place and the skiing was A1. Also got 15" the day we left for those who followed.
One of the best years in recent memory in TAOS!
