What a beautiful resort! Full of history, lots of services, yet it feels quaint and small. Some of the best service I’ve encountered. Restaurants were great, horse back riding fun and beautiful scenery, beautiful pool, historic rooms (I was in the headmistress suite!) as well as brand new areas. I’d highly recommend this to anyone going to the Tucson area.

The grounds were fantastically well kept and it’s a beautiful and tranquil oasis in the middle of Tucson. Fantastic mountain views with a high quality restaurant and live music to unwind on a night. Would love to revisit.

Our recent trip to Arizona could not have been better, with much of that due to this lovely hotel and its employees. Our historic room was quite large, gorgeous, and comfortable in every way. In addition, our room was decorated with photos of famous movie stars from the forties and fifties, setting off the Southwestern decor, which included beautiful hand-crafted Mexican tiles. In addition, the staff was always pleasant and attentive to meet our every request. In one instance, I absently left an expensive piece of jewelry on the bed, and Katy, our housekeeper, found it and placed it in a prominent spot for me to see. Such honesty in the world of travel is far from ordinary. The food at the hotel was excellent as well. In summation, Hacienda del Sol rewarded us with a wonderful week in Tucson. If you would like a taste of the Old West combined with quiet luxury, this is the place for you.

Hacienda Del Sol is THE PERFECT place for a wedding celebration! The guests can stay at the resort and the ceremony and reception areas are perfect! The Mountains are the perfect background for a ceremony, the rooms are charming and the gardens are unbelievably colorful.

We recently stayed here for a Romantic getaway & we were so absolutely blown away with the level of customer service. The staff were so friendly & always made sure we got exactly what we needed. The chef is extremely talented -- he made the best Egg Benedict we've ever had! The highlight of our stay was the Couple's Massage right on our own patio. Thx again Hacienda Del Sol for a wonderful stay ! Katie & Xavier, @xkflyaway Instagram
