Everything was fabulous, including the absolutely delicious dinner at Cielo's. We stayed in one of the upper Casita's with a fireplace and the lighted courtyard at night was dreamy. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to anyone travelling to Tucson.

We stayed a couple days while in Tucson, then came back for more. I liked having the restaurant close by. Staff masked efficiently. The rooms are spacious. I loved the cactus gardens and flowers, that bloomed even midwinter.

The hotel has nice pueblo-style architecture. We stayed in the room had a nice gas fireplace. It is clean and roomy. We enjoyed nice dinner at the patio of Cielos, went to swimming afterwards. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Be sure to ask if you like the room has the fireplace since not all the room has one.

What a charming little resort! Perfect SW feel and look to the property. Beautiful pool area, small cactus gardens, fountains, and breakfast area. About 1 mile walk to great coffee (Crave) and retail area. Views from North facing rooms of Catalina mountains are stunning, especially so at sunset. Breakfast each day included coffee, juice and a choice from two options, served at your table. The main building (office) is full of historic charm and includes a great library to enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon book.
