Clean, Relaxing, Comfortable, Friendly...

4.4 on June 22, 2013

My husband and I spent our anniversary in the Adobe and the Los Amantes. Air did not circulate well in the Adobe and we were very warm at night. We kept the windows open and used a floor fan; a ceiling fan would have been nice. I thought the Adobe had a private patio, but the fence is only a couple feet high in the front, which made me a bit uncomfortable leaving the shades open enough to circulate the air. The Los Amantes is larger and comfortable without a fan. Both rooms had clean bedding and the mattresses are firm, but not hard; comfortable. The Los Amantes does not have the large black Jacuzzi pictured on the web site. It has a smaller double white Jacuzzi up against the wall, which allowed for a nice double chair in the corner; perfect for cuddling! Candles are in the room. The area between the Jacuzzi and the sink and toilet doesn't have a door, but they do have a privacy screen that can be moved over. There are no T.V.'s in the rooms, but there is a CD player and they provide a few CDs. There is an outside hot tub with a sign-up sheet for private use. It was no problem to reserve a time slot and very enjoyable. Service was OUTSTANDING! Erika and Mark are spectacular! They were friendly, interesting and informative, but not pushy or invasive. Mark's breakfast is definitely worth waking up for!

Wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Hacienda Del Sol is a wonderful place to relax and rest. We stayed here for our anniversary and loved it. We were treated like family and will return as soon as the opportunity arises. Gerd and Luellen were the perfect hosts and we will recommend Hacienda Del Sol to all of our traveling friends and family. Don't miss this magical place when visiting Taos!

A Summer Stay in Taos

5 on September 02, 2012

This Bed and Breakfast could not have been more perfect. It was relaxation personified. The breakfasts were outstanding with three options each day. The location was quiet and peaceful and our hosts/hostesses were delightful and made ach guest feel as if they were the most important. The location was convenient to everything we wereinterested in doing, and the staff was most helpful to assist with out "tourist needs". Joe S., Phoenix, AZ

Beautiful view of sacred Taos Mountain.

A charming and gorgeous B&B, certainly hope to return. Our room provided a view of the mountain and courtyard; delicious breakfast and friendly hosts. Will certainly recommend it to others. A central location with many restaurants and museums close by.

Great Place to Stay in Taos

The setting is beautiful and peaceful, the rooms very appropriately decorated. The hosts were particularly knowledgable and helpful. If you are up for an adventure ask the hosts about Manby Hot Springs (at the end of Tune Road) in the Rio Grande Gourge.

Hacienda del Sol - Beautiful

We stayed at Hacienda del Sol for one night and it was absolutely lovely! The grounds are beautiful and I really liked the communal living room - I highly recommend this B&B for a authentic, relaxing stay.

Our Weekend Getaway in the Mabel's Salon

5 on September 07, 2011

We absolutely loved our stay at Hacienda Del Sol B&B. We came up for a weekend getaway and to share a wonderful wedding experience with our friends at The Love Apple just next door to the B&B. What a wonderful experience! The room was AMAZING and had the cutest, smallest, entry door that opened into a beautifully decorated Mabel's Salon room. Past that the food was GREAT and everyone was so friendly! We highly recommend it and we will be back for another fantastic stay! Thank you! Gloria

Spectacular courtyard

Beautiful view of the Taos Mountain. Hard working managers.

Would definitely return

4.6 on September 01, 2011

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We liked that our room had a door that led to the grassy common area (although mosquitoes were very present), and we enjoyed a glass of champagne (ice bucket provided upon request) while viewing the mountain before dinner at the Love Apple (highly recommended). The room and bathroom were immaculate and nicely decorated. I was happy to have the small room fan because we can't sleep with the windows open due to hubby's allergies. My only small complaint is that the hot tub was too hot, maybe that's the way to make sure we leave in our 30 minute alloted time. :o) Overall, a very pleasant stay.
