“Magnificent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2011

Hacienda Linda is like the Garden of Eden. The beautiful landscaping and wildlife is exquisite. The living quarters are restful and peaceful with little surprises if you look for them. While all the amenities are of the highest caliber, what truly makes Hacienda Linda stand out are the owners, Dan and Linda. They are the warmest and friendliest hosts that you will find. They truly make their home yours. They see to your every need, happily. And Chef Dan's omelets are unmatched, guaranteed. I highly recommend this wonderful getaway. Thank you Dan and Linda for a remarkable time.

It would not be overkill to simply copy and paste ALL the synonyms in a thesaurus for the words - welcoming, delicious, friendly, vibrant, etc. to describe this gem in the desert. Even though the level of praise using this method would be on target, it would be the lazy route to take, and lazy is one word that most definitely does not apply to the gracious hosts of Hacienda Linda. They have clearly worked tirelessly to create a haven that just envelopes guests in an authentic desert experience.

We are fans of bright colors, interesting decor, and the majestic saguaro cactus, and Hacienda Linda delivers all these things and much more. Linda and Dan, the owners, are very talented artists, and their flair for color and the creation of lively vignettes both inside and out elevates their b&b to the ranks of the most elite in our opinion. We have stayed in 54 b&b's, so we feel qualified to make that superlative comparison.

The level of peacefulness and pampering is just off the charts here. To gaze out from the treat-laden breakfast table on the portal to the lushness of the desert is to once again realize the startling variety of wondrous plants that grow in the sandy desert. You truly feel like you are experiencing a very special connection with the desert.

Linda and Dan are the very definition of indulgent hosts. They are warm and genuine and care very much about the quality of their guests' visits. They prepare tremendously flavorful and colorful food and serve it on plates and platters that mirror the vibrancy of the colors on the walls. Hammocks would be a good idea for the portal since you may have to just roll out of your chair into a supine position to allow for some digestion to take place before you begin your day's activities!

Hacienda Linda is a very precious place, and if you stay here, you will find yourself immediately wondering how soon you can return!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hacienda for a week. Linda and Dan are amazing hosts and the location is priceless. You felt as if you were one with nature. At night, you can see a skyline full of stars with absolutely no "light pollution." By day, its as if you are walking through a national park in your backyard with a veiw of the desert and its natural habitat.

My kids and I enjoyed being one with nature and don't recall having a better night's sleep away from home. When you're at the Hacienda, you'll be treated like family.

I would love to go back every year to relax and the location is not far from other sites. You don't have to venture far, you can take a walk and take in the unique Tucson atmoshphere with affordable, personalized service that you cannot get in a hotel.

I would highly recommend Hacienda Linda to friends and family.

Staying at Hacienda Linda was a memorable experience. The home and rooms are incredible. The hosts, Linda and Dan, are very warm and inviting. The scenery surrouding their property was amazing. Loved it and recommend to anyone looking for beautiful mountain scenery and desert vegetation.

You won't believe how many beautiful sights there are to see. Cozy bed and beautiful interior, too. You can visit the city of Tucson--and that is its own kind of fun--but this is the real desert.

This B&B is super stylish and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Very comfortable with friendly hosts. Giant Saguaro cactii as far as the eye can see and close to the Desert Museum. A bit of a drive into restaraunts and night life of Tucson, but the plus side is the pristene desert and all the wildlife and vistas it offers. My wife and I enjoy hiking and there are plenty of trails nearby. One of the hosts is an interior designer and it shows!

Two nights here with my wife and we both felt restored and inspired. Tuscon is an eclectic venue and has grown since the time we lived there. We had a wonderful stay at Hacienda Linda. Breakfast was generous.

I was so pleasantly welcomed by two of the most gracious hosts I have ever met. The location is well worth the trip to the natural desert surrounding. This is what Arizona is all about. If that weren't enough, the breakfast was delicious and the home is decorated in the most unique and tasteful style imaginable. I enjoyed every aspect of my stay.
