La Hacienda del Sol captures the extraordinary ambiance of the high Sonoran Desert: mountains, blue skies, saguaro cactus, very comfortable room--and the best restaurant in Tucson (especially the Sunday Brunch) better than any other--and we've enjoyed many other resorts in the area over the years.

And it is reasonable priced--the best value.

Just had a delightful stay at the gorgeous Hacienda del Sol in Tucson, the perfect place for a relaxing, romantic get-away. We were located on the second floor of one of the newer buildings (D) in a spacious, beautifully decorated Catalina room. Being on the second floor was not a concern as one of the staff drove us in a golf cart from the parking lot to our building and then carried our luggage upstairs with a smile. Thanks, A.J.

We loved our private patio with its grand, sweeping views of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains, and one morning we were even lucky enough to spot a few javelinas on a golf course below. One thing I especially liked was the bathroom, which was quite large with two separate colorful Talavera Mexican tiled sink areas, an open shower, and a private toilet area: a unique and pretty layout.

The grounds of the guest ranch were fun to stroll through with their interesting varieties of cacti, flowers, and sculptures, and there were also two swimming pools to enjoy, both with great views. The older buildings have a lot of history behind them, going back to the 1930’s when this was a girls’ finishing school. Old photos in the library and in other areas of the hotel show these days. Both spa treatments and horseback riding are available, but we chose, instead, to loll by the infinity pool, read, and take in the sun.

We dined in both restaurants which feature live music at night and especially enjoyed The Grill, both for dinner and for breakfast. Herbs and vegetables from the organic garden on the property are featured in their dishes. As a starter, the seared foie gras with pickled cherries was delicious as was my barramundi entrée with butternut squash potato puree. To top it all off, we were treated to a stunning orange sunset behind the mountains!

Highly recommend!

Dear pioneerpl,

Thank you for this detailed review! You had one of my favorite city views rooms which is truly astounding. I enjoy watching the monsoon season storms brewing over the Rincon Mountains as they work their way towards the west. I will pass on your compliments to A.J. we are very lucky to have him with us as he does indeed provide a great first impression of our resort! I am glad you got to relax at the pool and enjoy our delicious food in both restaurants. On behalf of all of us, I hope you have a great fall season and please come back and visit us soon.

Warm Regards,

Geoffrey Campbell

We wanted a place to celebrate with great food, wine and views. We found it and it was a very special night. We ordered off the special of the night menu and loved it. The sommelier helped pick a fabulous wine at a very special price. Everything was perfect. We will definitely go back and stay at this private resort in the mountains

Very nice facility, some new units, very roomy, and the older units have been upgraded. VERY quiet, two superb restaurants, very nice lounge with live entertainment, and super nice pools and hot tubs. We scored a special pricing stay which allowed us to stay an extra day/night.

We spent 2 nights in a one bedroom apartment for our family of 4. The room, particularly the main bedroom was very large. The sofa bed was already set up ready for us and was comfortable.The hotel surrounds were lovely - with beautiful views from the infinity pool. Every room seemed to also have a patio area, and we enjoyed sitting out on ours and enjoying the view.

We also went on a sunset horse ride from the hotel - which we would also recommend.

Dear meltel910,

Thank you so much for your review! The sunset horseback ride is one of my favorite activities of the resort. Watching the sunset from the top of the foothills gives you a 360 degree of all the major surrounding mountain ranges. It simply cannot be beat! I am glad you enjoyed your room and our Catalina Pool. We look forward to seeing you again and we hope you enjoy the upcoming fall season.

Warm Regards,

Geoffrey Campbell
