We have attended a number of events at The Hacienda, and always found the accommodations unique, relaxing, and beautiful. When planning our wedding, the venue was the only one we considered. From the first meeting with the staff, we felt embraced, and that our vision would be carried out to the maximum. Our team delivered in every possible way. They never objected to changes, alternate wishes or our numerous phone calls. Thanks Hacienda wedding team, you made our special day special indeed.

My wedding at the Hacienda went so smoothly and was orchestrated perfectly by the Hacienda! I had a great time, everything was beautiful, and it was very little stress to plan. So much is included in their wedding package - dinner, cake, pianist, decorative flowers, table settings, wedding coordinator, bar. This means a lot less work for me, the out-of-town bride! The only downside is this means not too much flexibility in what you want to do, and if you want extras, you always end up paying extra. Most of the time this made sense, but for example, we had to pay extra to have 30 minutes of photo time before the ceremony! That's not a lot of extra time, but we paid several hundred dollars for it, and they wouldn't let us arrive any earlier. Overall, I loved how my wedding turned out. This is great for a laid back bride who wants a beautiful wedding and isn't too particular about every detail. Also, overall the package was a great value compared to other venues in the area.

The Hacienda venue is excellent and the staff very accommodating and helpful. Everything went incredibly smoothly, the food was good and everything was arranged beautifully. I received many compliments from attendees on the beauty of the setting.

The event went FLAWLESSLY. Everything was smoothly scheduled and went according to that schedule. As the mother of the bride, I didn't have to do a thing except follow directions. I was able to relax and enjoy the day. It was stress-free and that is the best compliment I can give.

The venue is enchanting! They have the best wedding packages in Orange County. All my guests loved the food and their carrot cake, everything was delicious. They worked with us very well to make sure the event was exactly the way we envisioned it! The coordinators were great the day of the wedding. They took care of us throughout the whole event and made sure we were very happy with everything.

We had a great experience planning our wedding with the staff at the Hacienda. We were quite last minute in booking our venue and they helped us out with a lot of aspects. We used both a Dj and Flower Boutique from there list of vendors which were quite reasonable and very professional. The venue organizes everything which may be a little unnerving for those brides and grooms that want to know all the details and know exactly how everything will be set up. But no matter how much or how little explanation you give them they make it look beautiful. The venue has such a great atmosphere and it is so beautiful at night with all the fairy lights and wonderful decor.
I was a little worried about the food, as there was no tasting of the menu we wanted (dinner buffet) but the food was wonderful, everyone loved it and it was presented beautifully. The cake, that is included, is also great, you maybe thrown off by carrot spice cake, but it tastes great.
The night ran smoothly and we all had a wonderful time and a great party celebration.

OMG!! We can not say enough good things about this venue. BEAUTIFUL! HELPFUL! YUMMY FOOD! EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! They were awesome. We highly recommend this venue if you want a non stressful beautiful setting wedding. We are from Hawaii and our families were surprised we choose this location to get married because we could have chosen to get married on the beach but we picked this location because we loves Disneyland which this location is near. The online pictures are beautiful but do not do the place justice. There are so many great picture opportunity places on sight. You would not know it from the outside but once inside it was like you were truly transported somewhere else. We are completely satisfied with everything that transpire from beginning to end. Mahalo from Maui Hawaii, <3<3<3 Elsa and Michael <3<3<3

We had our wedding here this November and it was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. The coordinators at the Hacienda are so friendly, helpful and on top of EVERYTHING- they take all the stress and worry off of you. This venue is pretty much all inclusive and it allowed us to plan our wedding in 5 months (actually, it was pretty much done in 2- thanks to The Hacienda). The venue is gorgeous, the perfect setting for a wedding. The day of the wedding was flawless. Christin was our coordinator and she was amazing! She was calm, on top of everything- everyone loved her and was so impressed with how well she handled everything. Art was also one of our coordinators and he was the one who showed us around initially and he was awesome too. He was very helpful in recommending vendors and answering all of our initial questions. I would recommend renting out the whole venue so you have the entire place to yourself. The whole night was flawless. Also, we did the buffet with Mexican food and the food is AMAZING...all of our guests loved it. I would highly recommend this venue!

We had the most amazing and perfect time on our wedding day thanks to The Hacienda! Their all inclusive, affordable venue made it possible for us to have a beautiful wedding! The price includes the ceremony space, the ballroom, the food & cake, linens, floral centerpieces, and 2 event coordinators to help our on your special day! Everything from the decor, to the food, and the wonderful staff contributed to the success of that special day. We have received many compliments from my guests about what a treasure we found! The food and the cake was delicious. The coordinators were always one step ahead of the itinerary and everything really went smoothly. The only negative comment we got from our guests, was that a few people were not finished eating and their plates were taken away too soon. However, because we booked the Sunday brunch wedding, I think everything moved fairly quickly. Other than that, we had the best time at our wedding, and so did our guests! I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a small or inexpensive wedding, but would still like it to be elegant and beautiful, to check out The Hacienda. You won't regret it!!!

Our wedding was so perfect in every way! I think I am one of the luckiest brides and somehow got the best vendors and especially the best venue that I could have ever imagined! The Hacienda specializes in weddings, so they know exactly what works; but believe me, you won’t get a cookie cutter wedding. They basically do the big details for you and they work with you on certain aspects of the wedding and you adding the little finishing touches. Some of their rules might be a little restrictive for some brides, but it was exactly what I wanted. I wanted as little stress and worry as possible. Everyone we dealt with at the Hacienda was helpful and answered every single question we had prior to the wedding.
On the day of, they set up our favor table, sign in table, table numbers, cake and whatever else… exactly as I asked them to. The day of coordinators that the venue provides, took care of everything! I didn’t have to think about anything at all. They do all of it for you! In regards to the food, I didn’t have much time to eat, but I tried a bite of every single thing and it was AMAZING! Also, the cake (spiced Viennese carrot cake) they make is to die for!
Honestly, I never imagined having a wedding where I’d have people coming up to tell us that it was the “best wedding they had ever been to” or the “best wedding food they ever had” or it was “the best venue they’ve seen”… etc. The Hacienda made it all possible. They made our day so magical and so memorable!!! Thank you!

They basically do the big details for you and they work with you on certain aspects of the wedding and you adding the little finishing touches. Some of their rules might be a little restrictive for some brides, but it was exactly what I wanted. I wanted as little stress and worry as possible. Everyone we dealt with at the Hacienda was helpful and answered every single question we had prior to the wedding.
On the day of, they set up our favor table, sign in table, table numbers, cake and whatever else… exactly as I asked them to. The day of coordinators that the venue provides, took care of everything! I didn’t have to think about anything at all. They do all of it for you! In regards to the food, I didn’t have much time to eat, but I tried a bite of every single thing and it was AMAZING! Also, the cake (spiced Viennese carrot cake) they make is to die for!
Honestly, I never imagined having a wedding where I’d have people coming up to tell us that it was the “best wedding they had ever been to” or the “best wedding food they ever had” or it was “the best venue they’ve seen”… etc. The Hacienda made it all possible. They made our day so magical and so memorable!!! Thank you! Read less

My wedding this past June 16, 2013 went great. Everything I asked of The Hacienda Staff was met. My tables were perfect, the cake table looked great, our Sweetheart table looked beautiful. I had no problems whatsoever. I feel the price we paid for the venue and for the amount of guest (50) was perfect. All of my guest loved the look and atmosphere of The Hacienda. The Staff was very attentive and kept on top of things at all times. Very satisfied.

We truly had a wonderful experience at The Hacienda. From beginning to end, they really made us feel special, everyone there was friendly and helpful. For a busy couple, that worked long hours, this venue and all it had to offer was perfect for us. On our wedding day, our coordinators, Christin and Art were great and kept us on track. Christin especially stood out to me because she was always smiling, always keeping us in check for time and the evening's events were so seamless. The Taos room where we had our reception was also fantastic, it was very romantic and the room was warm and inviting. All of our guests complimented our venue as it was a unique place for a reception. Everyone also enjoyed the food and wedding cake, it was all very delicious. This place will always be special to us! Thank you Hacienda!

From the moment we first walked into the Hacienda, my husband and I knew this was where we wanted to get married. We booked with them a little over a year before the wedding and then went back for brunch probably 5 times with various members of our family between then and our wedding on June 9th.

During the planning there were a few hiccups - some misunderstandings and some things that were not explained as clearly as perhaps they could have been early on - but the service, the staff, the food, the ambiance and just the venue in general on the evening of the rehearsal dinner and day of the wedding more than made up for any of the issues experienced during the planning process.

Many of our friends and family have said this was the perfect place for us to get married and we couldn't agree more. Just this morning my husband asked when our next free Sunday is - he wants to go back for brunch!

An absolutely magical evening! Art and Leann (sp?) were our wedding coordinators and they were very accommodating. Every detail was completed to perfection. The venue is gorgeous and all our guests raved about the romantic setting and food. Many guests commented about the tenderness of the chicken and the GREAT mashed potatoes. The carrot cake wedding cake was a hit also and looked fantastic in the cake gazebo decorated with twinkly lights. The sweetheart table was decorated with fresh roses and each guest table included an elegant orchid. We were fortunate enough to not have rain which caused us some concern since we had the outdoor courtyard. During that week we contacted The Hacienda and they had all details under control for plan "B" if needed. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, holiday party, etc. We married one week ago (11-11-11) and are still reliving those special moments. Thank you Art! Thank you Leann! Thank you The Hacienda! You made our special day just perfect !! !! !!

The Hacienda was fabulous! Last year we had attended an Open House to check it out. We loved what we saw and booked our wedding. It was the only venue that we saw. It was everything we wanted.

Working with the Staff (coordinators are wonderful) was seemless. Anytime I had questions, there was always someone there to help. They handled it all. The rehearsal was great and the wedding was even better.

All my guests loved the venue and complimented it's beauty. The food was great (we had the Southwest Buffet) and the cake was super yummy (carrot, my husband's favorite).

If you really want to get a great value for your money, check out the Hacienda. I don't think you will be disappointed.

PERFECT! That is how I would describe my experience with The Hacienda...from the planning process to the wedding itself. When I was searching for a venue and found The Hacienda, a lot of comments I had read about it were mostly positive, but the one negative was they weren't flexible enough. I understand brides dream of this day and what their colors will be, flowers, etc., but what I appreciated most about the restrictions is that the venue is up front about it. Now that I've had my wedding there, quite frankly I think it works to the benefit of the bride and groom that the Hacienda does things their way to ensure that things go off without any snags. I preferred not having too many options because both my husband and I are workaholics and didn't have time for the details. But to my surprise, we actually had more options than they led on - we could choose flavors of cake, the design of the cake, the linens we want even though the selection is slim. Also, the Hacienda was flexible with our rehearsal day because we couldn't do the weekday. As long as they did not have an event the day before the wedding, we were able to have our rehearsal then. And if we wanted, we could have chosen our own florist, but why spend that extra money when the Hacienda provides nice flowers and centerpieces. I loved my orchid centerpieces - those things are damn expensive if I did it on my own. And so, we left everything in the hands of The Hacienda and they were entirely competent. I trusted them because they wrote down every detail, and I mean down to how many little votives I wanted on the table- and I mentioned that in passing while we were taking a tour of the place! The coordinator did not even have a pen in her hand to jot the note down. But when I was sent the contract a few weeks later, that little detail was on there and day of my wedding, sure enough I had my votive candles. They did not miss a thing. They provided the stuff I just didn't want to buy, too, like the unity candles, the cake knife and serving kit, the cake top...and at no extra cost.

And I'll be honest, for the low rate we paid I did not have SUPER HIGH expectations. I thought we were going to get what we paid for- beautiful but not elegant, and decent food, but not great. But The Hacienda exceeded my expectations. It was elegant, it was classy. The decor was far more beautiful the day of than I imagined. Seriously, for the price The Hacienda charges, it is a STEAL. The food is excellent (far better than the cuisine I've had at $50K-100K weddings)!!!! I was really nervous it would just be OK, because we were not able to taste our actual menu choices. They allow you to taste their food, but not what is actually on the menu for sit down dinners. But again, I was pleasantly surprised. We are foodies, and trust me, my filet mignon and my husband's Brandy and Apricot Chicken were to die for. Oh, and those scrumptuous mashed potatoes. OMG and the bread rolls! People couldn't stop talking about them!! And it was awesome to have the free flowing alcohol. It is what every couple wants and can barely afford- that was great! The bartender rocked it, and the coordinators the day of were on TOP of EVERYTHING. The cake was gorgeous and DELICIOUS, another food item people still are raving about.

If there is anything I could change, it would be the sign for The Hacienda that is on 17th Street. It is so dated and it makes the venue look cheap from the exterior. I was very embarrassed and apologetic to my guests in advance for the "location" and I said for them not to judge by the sign or the exterior. But everyone's reaction after the wedding was..."that place was amazing", "such a great find", "I loved that everything was available right there", "what a beautiful place!" In conclusion, we have had nothing but great reviews from our guests and I want to thank the Hacienda for giving to us the most perfect wedding!!!

LOVED the Hacienda! Where do I begin? Obviously, it was beautiful. But the staff there was also SO fantastic. All through my wedding, I felt like a wedding coordinator was always easy to find and so responsive to anything I needed. And they were really helpful, answering all my questions before the wedding too.
And nothing could be more simple than a wedding at the Hacienda. They are so well organized. My wedding wasn't crazy or hectic (apart from, perhaps, the flower girls and ring bearer :) ), because the staff had everything under control.
Dinner was delicious -- and served quickly. (Who wants to wait and watch other tables eat?!) The cake was delicious. And I didn't pick out my own centerpieces; I just trusted the Hacienda to have something beautiful, and they did -- orchids!
Loved it. Loved everything!

I had my wedding reception at The Hacienda and could not have been more pleased. It definitely had the "wow" factor that I was looking for, and no matter how many times my mom and I called or stopped in with questions leading up to the wedding, the staff was always helpful and understanding. Many of my guests commented after the wedding about the great location, helpful staff, delicious food and overall wonderful experience. My only critique is the inflexibility we experienced with planning food (unable to make separate plates for guests/family members with severe allergies), other than that I have zero complaints. You won't regret booking The Hacienda for a small get-together or huge bash!

We just got married in the Taos Room at The Hacienda last weekend and couldn't have been happier with the venue, the process or the staff. We were referred by a coworker who had gotten married there a couple months ago and loved it. It's an all-inclusive venue--the cost of our package included the venue; ceremony; ceremony musician; decorations/flowers (not personals); food (appetizers and meal); the cake; unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks; and assistance from their coordinators throughout the process.

I'm not one of those girls who's been planning her dream wedding since she was five, and I knew that my guy and I would be on our own as far as the planning, so the all-inclusive route The Hacienda offers was great in terms of significantly reducing the number of details we had to manage--we only had to take care of getting the photographer, videographer, deejay (required to be picked from their list), officiant, my bouquet and bridal party flowers. This was especially helpful given that we decided to put our foot on the gas and plan our wedding in 2.5 months from start to finish.

The price was right as well. Before checking out The Hacienda I'd looked into a few other venues and determined that the cost of renting the venue plus getting catering, cake, decorations/floral, ceremony, etc., was going to cost way more.

The space is beautiful--California Spanish garden, but also has a covered patio space. It was the perfect size for our 100 guests so that nobody was off in the boonies nor were we stacked on top of each other. We got so many compliments on how nice the venue was.

From our first visit, the coordinators (they all work on anybody's wedding, but you are assigned specific one[s] for the day of your wedding) were friendly, informative and helpful. Whenever I had a question or needed something, I could count on getting the answer or it taken care of quickly. At one point we were struggling with selecting a deejay (The Hacienda requires that the deejay be selected from their list of preferred vendors) so I called and one of the coordinators was able to give me a rundown of the styles of the deejays (e.g., more emcee vs. quiet) and that helped us pick one that ended up being a great fit for us. On the day of the wedding our two coordinators couldn't have been more on top of everything and helpful. They ran the show so well that we never had to wonder "what should we be doing now?" They checked in with us frequently throughout the event, making sure we had everything we needed, whether it was an extra pin for a boutonniere, our meals, or a refill on our champagne, and they were efficient with the schedule and kept things flowing smoothly without being stressed, stressful or bossy.

The reason I gave a 4.5 on Flexibility is that for a few of the items your choices are limited or nonexistent, such as only being able to use a deejay from their list of preferred vendors, not being able to play recorded music during the ceremony and having to pay extra if you want a cake flavor other than their Viennese spice cake. We're pretty easygoing people, so we weren't *too* bothered by it, but it did make a couple things a little challenging--not being able to use a deejay that other friends had raved about, having to work within the pianist's repertoire for our ceremony music (side note to The Hacienda: In addition to the classical songs you have listed in the FAQs on your website, please list the fact that Don knows contemporary songs/artists such as Coldplay, The Beatles, Colbie Caillet, etc., and is willing to learn songs he may not already know if given enough lead time. I learned this talking to him a few days before the wedding and it opened up more choices for us to find music that was a better fit with the vibe of our ceremony.).

On the whole I highly recommend The Hacienda!

We just got married in the Taos Room at The Hacienda last weekend and couldn't have been happier with the venue, the process or the staff. We were referred by a coworker who had gotten married there a couple months ago and loved it. It's an all-inclusive venue--the cost of our package included the venue; ceremony; ceremony musician; decorations/flowers (not personals); food (appetizers and meal); the cake; unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks; and assistance from their coordinators throughout the process.

I'm not one of those girls who's been planning her dream wedding since she was five, and I knew that my guy and I would be on our own as far as the planning, so the all-inclusive route The Hacienda offers was great in terms of significantly reducing the number of details we had to manage--we only had to take care of getting the photographer, videographer, deejay (required to be picked from their list), officiant, my bouquet and bridal party flowers. This was especially helpful given that we decided to put our foot on the gas and plan our wedding in 2.5 months from start to finish.

When planning my wedding, I knew I wanted an outdoor setting. I wanted to stay away from the traditional ballroom environment since it's always been the setting for almost all weddings I've been to. I found the Hacienda through my sister who attended an event for her company. The setting is very beautiful. Lots of trees and flowers, and twinkle lights.

If you're someone like me, who has budget restrictions, and was pretty laid back regarding details (centerpieces, musicians, linens, etc.), the Hacienda is a godsend. True, the cost per plate is higher than some places that I've checked, but I didn't have to worry about the centerpieces, linens, cakes, musicians. At the day of the event, LeAnn and Kristen were my coordinators and they were AMAZING. My guests, the groom and I LOVED them. They were very professional and kept checking on us and making sure we were happy and on schedule.

The food was also very good. Everyone loved the chicken marsala and the sirloin they served. So happy with the food.

The only complaint I had was that they don't let you in earlier than 30 minutes before the ceremony. I had to purchase an extra 30 minutes to take pictures and get ready, which wasn't enough time. But overall, the Hacienda made our day even more special. Highly recommend if you're laid back and want a small, intimate wedding.

The hacienda was the perfect place to have my wedding. The staff was very professional and was very on top of things during the ceremony and reception. The Casa Courtyard was absolutely breathtaking during the day and at night. It was the perfect backdrop for my pictures. I didn't have to stress about anything because the Hacienda took care of it all. I'm so grateful for the staff at the Hacienda for helping to make my wedding day one of the best days of my entire life!

My husband and I had our wedding and reception at the Hacienda. We were looking for some place that could accommodate several things. A specific date on short notice, somewhere we could have both wedding and reception, a location with a beautiful outdoor setting, and somewhere with inclusive packages. We hit the jackpot.

We had the wedding and reception in the evening in their outdoor patio area. It looked like a fairy land, with all the beautiful flowers and white lights in the trees. It is a very romantic setting.
The food was fabulous, and everyone remarked at how wonderful everything was.

When you read the information on their website, it can be a little off-putting. I had a specific D.J. I wanted to use. He was not on their list, however, when I spoke with the D.J. he said he had done weddings there. I called the wedding coordinator, and they had him send over his insurance information, and we were then good to go.

My only negative comment would be this: since they do not allow recorded music for the ceremony, I had to use one of their pianists. I sent her the list of music we wanted, and in corresponding by email, she informed me she had a standing date every Saturday to play for a local church. She would finish that service 15 minutes prior to the start of our ceremony, but felt she could make it in time with no problems. She was almost one half hour late, which pushed back the schedule for the entire evening. Since you only have four hours for wedding and reception without paying extra, her lateness gave us less time to dance and enjoy the music.

All in all though, we highly recommend The Hacienda. Their wedding coordinators are wonderful, the facility fabulous and the food? Well, we have gone back since then to dine:)

Perfect! I am so happy that we choose to have our wedding at The Hacienda! From start to finsih the staff was always there to help with whatever we needed. Anytime I had a question I could just pick up the phone and call and whoever answered the phone always had an answer for me. It is an all inclusive package which takes a lot of pressure off of you during the planning process. I choose to have my own florist and get my own linens and The Hacienda worked well with all of my vendors. Everything went so smoothly on my wedding day. They really have it together at The Hacienda, not to mention it is such a beautiful place you must see it in person the website doesn't do it justice! I was so happy and stress free on my wedding day and I thank the Hacienda for that! It was just perfect!

We absolutely loved the Hacienda. The ambiance is BEAUTIFUL. The ceremony and reception were just perfect and the best part about it is...the bride doesn't have anything to stress about!! They do everything for you! All the other reviews say everything wonderful about the place and the staff but what I HIGHLY RECOMMEND is that you take advantage of the extra hour before the ceremony for pictures so that you can be involved in every second of the reception. Also, my fiance and I regretted not paying for an extra hour at the end of the reception. Everything just went by too quickly since there are only 4 hours for the reception. The staff really helps move everything along but I wanted more time to dance! As the star couple of the night you get pulled in a million directions and may feel like you miss out on some fun dancing time!! All in all we LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS place!!

Hacienda, had an open house over a year before my wedding date, do I could choose any date really. Also, the open house allowed you to get a discount on their services for booking early. They are the caterers and cake makers, wonderful. It takes the stress off having to find those people, too. The food was delicious, my (now) husband wishes we could have taken that food home to enjoy later, me too. They also gave us recommendations for other vendors, who in turn gave you discounts for booking early. They were the best site that I could have imagined, thank you Kristen and team!

The Hacienda is truly a hidden gem in Santa Ana, CA! They have a beautiful and unique venue that fits many event needs! They really provide some amazing packages and services for their prices! We received LOTS of complements on the beauty of the venue as well as the amazing service! I don't think I ever saw any unncessary plates/cups sitting on any of the tables. The day of the even coordinators were amazing and on top of everything! I never even had to ask what was next or where I needed to be because they were always there letting me know what was next in line!

The place looked amazing, the timeline for the night went very smoothly and everyone had an amazing time!

The only little quirk that I would want to point out to any and all brides is the fact that you do not have any ONE person as a primary contact until the rehearsal. Which is a little nerve racking while planning a wedding. The staff are very friendly when you call and helpful, but you just always feel as though there are loose ends everywhere because they really leave everything until the rehearsal. The staff is very knowledgable and they truly do know what they are doing! However, since you haven't ever worked with them before it's hard to just let go and trust and they really don't put a lot of confidence in you to trust them...they just simply say "yes we'll take care of that at the rehearsal". But, trust me they really do know what they are doing!

I absolutely recommend The Hacienda to everyone! Our wedding was perfect and went so smoothly. I loved our two coordinators that were provided on the day of. They took such good care of us. The property is so beautiful and must be seen in person to really grasp all that it has to offer. I have wonderful pictures to prove it! They have great food, ambiance and staff. They provide so much in their package it's hard to list it all. I really liked that they included the cake (super yummy carrot cake!) and the ceremony music (pianist) and he was awesome! Another perk, it was nice not having to worry about getting guests from the ceremony site to the reception site too. Having it all in one location made the day much less stressful. Our family and friends keep saying its the best wedding they have ever been too!

The Hacienda was absolutely perfect for my husband and I. The Hacienda provides: ceremony music, centerpieces (they choose fresh flowers), linens, caterer, wedding cake, and free flowing champagne, beer and wine all night. That in itself was enough reason for us to choose this as our wedding location. Not to mention that the property itself is just beautiful. Its full of flowers, fountains and original hacienda architecture that make you feel your in another world. They also provide two onsite wedding coordinators to ensure that your special day goes off without a hitch. It was such a relief knowing that I had someone to "worry" for me and I could just enjoy my day. I gave them a low score on the flexibility because they do have some rules that they're very strict on. For example, our ceremony was at 6pm. No one was allowed on the property untill 5:30 even though there was no event before ours. They only allow live music for the ceremony and have a list of DJs that you must choose from. Great location and price. You must see in person, pictures do not do it justice.

Great location and price. You must see in person, pictures do not do it justice. Read less

My husband (then fiance) and I were originally going to book at at Tivoli Terrace. At the last minute, we decided to take a look at The Hacienda. I can't tell you how happy we are that we did! Every single person on staff was SO wonderful to us from start to finish! The convenience of having an all inclusive package under one roof took so much stress off of us! The food and our cake were absolutely delicious, the place was magically beautiful and charming, and I have the pictures to prove it! We could not have made a better choice... The majority of our 150 guests complimented us that night, or called us afterward to say what a beautiful wedding we had! And to top it off, we went back for dinner on our one year anniversary, and everyone remembered us! We have no doubt whatsoever in our minds that when we renew our vows, it will be at The Hacienda! Thank you Art, and everyone else who made our once in a lifetime wedding experience so amazing!!!
