My husband and I only stayed for one night for a weekend getaway. First off, we were very impressed with the service/friendliness of the staff. Upon arrival we were greeted by the concierge who welcomed us and gave us the map of the grounds and escorted us to the front desk. We were early and the room was not ready, so we went to have lunch at the restaurant. By the time we were done with lunch the front desk attendant came to let us know that the room was ready and gave us the room keys. We stayed in the Catalina King mountain view room which had everything we could've asked for. The food was also amazing. For dinner my husband ordered the steak and I had the salmon. Both were delicious. I'm not a huge steak fan, but I tried some of his and it was cooked perfectly! We ordered in-room breakfast and we were once again impressed with the chef. Note: We filled out the bfast card the night before and put it on our doorknob before 2 a.m. Overall, the resort and staff exceeded our expectations. We will definitely come back and tell anyone visiting Tucson to check it out.

I had the good fortune to have been gifted an overnight stay Memorial Day weekend in one of the new suites at the Hacienda. The rooms were beautifully decorated paying homage to its southwestern heritage. To celebrate my birthday, drinks were prepared in the bar, followed by a scrumptious dinner at the Grill. The next morning I enjoyed a delicious breakfast, followed by a massage and facial in my suite. The grounds and gardens are spectacular, and the staff is phenomenal! I was treated like royalty - an amazing weekend!

This hotel was quiet and secluded yet 1-3 miles from shops and restaurants. You'd have to drive to go to another restaurant, BTW. But, no need - we ate at the hotel's 2 restaurants 5 times during our week there. The food was delicious. Our room was spacious and cleaned every day while we were out. The pools were quiet. The decorations around the hotel are unique and beautiful. We golfed at other resorts during the day and some were quite a drive out of town and miles away from anything. We were happy with the choice we made.

We were guests here of a friend who lives nearby. We were attending a party at his house and he did not want us to have to travel too far via taxi. He had arranged an early check-in + a generous gift of food and wine to be delivered to our room upon check-in. While we ended up arriving only an hour prior to the "usual" check-in time, we were informed by front desk staff that our room wasn't ready. Our protests were brushed off as, "Too bad." After a text to our friend, the staff quickly arranged our check-in. The food and wine was slow to arrive. While the accommodations are lovely, the upper-level management (who arranged our and several other party guests reservations) and the front desk apparently don't communicate. This is slow season and they should be happy to have someone willing to pay $200. + for a room! I'm sure they will do better next time!
