We were planning a weekend trip to Taos and wanted to stay somewhere different. Someone recommended a bread and breakfast place...I immediately thought of a crowded breakfast table, sitting with people we didn't know, having to eat a breakfast made of veggies.....but we decided on giving it a try.
We decided to stay at Casa de Benadivez...right downtown within walking distance of the town plaza. I had seen name, but never paid attention to a "bread and breakfast" as a weekend place.
Wow! I was surprised with courteous staff as soon as we walked in. Wonderful lobby area...but the best part were the rooms. Very comfortable...set within a small plaza area for only several rooms. Very private, but not overbearingly quiet. Relaxing best describes outdoor plaza and room. Parking was perfect, away from street and traffic. The area where our room was, very quiet and enjoyable.
Breakfast was a big surprise. Options on what one wanted to order...and it was very delicious and made to order. Definitely had a New Mexico decor in the eating area...large enough and private enough where one didn't feel overcrowded. The morning staff was very attentive and very helpful.
I would highly recommend La Casa de Benidevez if you are looking for a great place to stay. Our stay broke many false myths of a bread and breakfast. I enjoyed our weekend stay...wanting to stay longer because I felt very relaxed and my spirit geared way down to one free from any anxiety and concerns.
Looking for a great place to stay, right near plaza, with very comfortable rooms, excellent & courteous staff, wonderful setting away from noise and traffic...this is the place.
Enjoy a long weekend or extended stay here and you will leave Taos
blessed by your visit!
