We wanted to spend a couple of days relaxing and enjoying the weather

5 on September 17, 2018

We booked a room for 2 nights. The suite we were given was lovely. The staff was so helpful and the grounds were fabulous. We spent the evenings playing cribbage and reading by the fireplace in the living room area. The breakfasts were delicious and make to order for us. One morning we ate outside on the patio enjoying the gardens and Mountain View. We decided to spend en extra night as we just were not ready to leave. We definitely recommend this place. Hopefully we will be able stay there again Frisco Tx

Peaceful and beautiful place

Our room in the historic section was a little warm due to no cross ventilation Otherwise great with nice view opening onto the back garden, Wonderful made to order breakfast with many choices in cozy dining area. Homey atmosphere, quiet surroundings with lush vegetation. Would definitely recommend for couples, singles, maybe not children..

Lovely setting and great food. Loved the privacy!

A hidden gem

5 on August 21, 2018

Found this B&B on Trip Advisory. We refer to it as a hidden gem, because it is off the road and not visible until you travel a few hundred feet to the parking lot. It is rustic, but the room we had was very comfortable, immaculate and relaxing. The property is beautiful. It was enjoyable to amble around it. It would be very pleasant to sit outside and enjoy nature. The gentlemen who prepared and served an excellent breakfast were very attentive and friendly, taking the time to chat with us and answer all of our questions about the area. We wish we had dined at the restaurant that s near the B&B, the Love Apple. We had dessert there, and it was delicious. Our hosts considered it the best restaurant in the area. As a warning, this restaurant doesn't accept credit cards (cash or check). We are definitely coming back to Hacienda Del Sol!

Our favorite B & B!

Hacienda Del Sol has been our favorite B & B for over 15 years! My husband and I try to go for our anniversary every couple of years. We have stayed in many of the rooms and have loved them all! The under the stairs hot tub is a must! Breakfast time is something we look forward to...always delicious options prepared with love! And the owners are just lovely!

Great stay

We had a great stay at Hacienda Del Sol B&B. We enjoyed the room, the breakfast, the late-night visit to the hot tub and our visit to the restaurant adjacent to the B&B.

The ideal B&B

5 on August 07, 2018

We can't say enough about our stay at the Hacienda Del Sol B&B. Everything was just what we needed! From the grounds, our rooms in the Taos Suite, the breakfast, and the outstanding innkeepers who helped us with restaurants and other activities in Taos. It was restful, delightful and just perfect. We can't wait for a return visit to learn more about the Taos Pueblo and different cultures of New Mexico!

Time with Sister.

We had a wonderful visit with staff and with other guest. Really surprised and happy to see a Saint Bernard as a guest! Liked the sign up for the hot tub. The accommodations was wonderful. Disappointed on the hot tub not being Hot :o( a Big plus for me staying at places. Liked the designated parking, very cool! Really liked reading the old guest books and finding our entry from 25 years ago. Beautiful property and good food. Would recommend.

Room and breakfast were great, staff gracious. Expensive, but worth it.

Best Experience!

5 on July 12, 2018

We came here for a quick weekend getaway. The room (El Pueblo) was perfect - 1st floor that walks out on to the lawn with an incredible view of the mountain! The service was outstanding and breakfast was delicious. We’ve already booked another stay in December and can’t wait to be back!
