went to Happy Hour on the Terrace with a friend. They have live music nightly from 6 to8. the views are super. The staff is very friendly. The food was good, but pricey. The only problem was the flies. the terrace is open air which is nice you have to fight the flies.

Stayed here three nights and found it an excellent base camp for exploring Tucson as we traveled to Saguaro National Park, east & west, and spent time downtown. It has lovely grounds, two pools with views, and accommodations. We chose to stay in the original historic building which started out as a boarding school for girls in the early 1900's. The charming rooms are organized around a landscaped central courtyard. We especially loved our view to the cactus garden, and the darling bathroom tiles. Also, the piles of grapefruits placed around for visitors were much appreciated -- the most amazing grapefruits I have ever enjoyed! Very kind and caring staff. The location is a quiet, birdsong filled setting which we loved, entirely relaxing and calming.

We spent several nights here while attending a destination wedding. Breakfasts and bar offerings were very good. The various courtyards were perfect settings for the wedding service, cocktail hour and reception. The staff were very accommodating. We stayed in the John Wayne room. It perhaps could use some updating, yet still held charm. I loved the boarding school history. You can Uber to downtown for $13!

We were visiting family and decided to stay at Hacienda Del Sol. We stayed in a Catalina Room with 2 Queen beds. Our views were breathtaking! The Catalina Rooms are the newer ones and ours was wonderful. Loved the decor and the peaceful nature of the resort in general. One night, while enjoying wine on our balcony, we looked down and saw a family of javelinas romping around! My daughter had a facial and said it was fantastic. Overall - This resort is wonderful - we will be back.

Recommended by a friend, a lovely property with friendly staff. Stayed the night after a long drive from LA and couldn't be happier. Had dinner in the restaurant patio at sunset and the waiter was wonderful - listened to live entertainment, watched the fire in the fire pit and setting sun. Comfortable room with gorgeous landscaping in the courtyard - a guava tree! Looking forward to my next stay.
