Fodor's Expert Review Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort
5501 N. Hacienda Del Sol Rd., Tucson, Arizona, 85718, USA Fodor's Choice
This 32-acre hideaway in the Santa Catalina Foothills is a charming and more intimate alternative to the larger resorts, and is partly a guest ranch, with riding stables down the road. Designed in classic Mexican hacienda style, this former finishing school for girls was converted to a guest ranch during World War II and attracted stars like Clark Gable, Katharine Hepburn, and Spencer Tracy. The best rooms are the west-facing casitas with fireplaces and private porches, where you can watch the sun set over the Tucson Mountains.
- outstanding restaurant and bar
- buildings and landscaping are stunningly beautiful
- not enough resort amenities for some (no golf or spa, just a few massage rooms)
Rate Includes: No meals
