    Gorgeous Hotel

    This hotel is truly a hidden gem! If you want to feel like you've stepped into a relaxing Spanish villa, come here! We hosted our wedding at this venue and I had lots of family come from out of town (Utah) and they all fell in love with the venue and surrounding area. The grounds are gorgeous, with all the established lighted olive trees, small vineyards and the fountain in the middle of the outdoor dining area. All of our wedding guests loved the venue and enjoyed their stay. The rooms were clean and updated, the beds were super comfortable and the staff were kind and professional. Reema (the general manager) was so kind and patient with us - answered all of our questions and was very accommodating. The best part was that they allow dogs! We brought along our own fur baby and there were 3 other dogs that accompanied our guests. This was a major plus since pets were a make or break issue for some of our guests (some wouldn't have been able to attend because they couldn't find a dog sitter or trusted kennel in time). Thankfully, the walls were thick enough that we couldn't hear anyone next to or above us and we didn't hear any dogs barking. We all had a lovely visit with Hacienda and I would recommend them for an event or just a weekend stay!
