We enjoyed 5 nights and 4 full days at the Mayan Ranch across the first week of June. We were blessed with great weather and we all (My wife and I and our 3 boys age 9, 5, & 4) had a great time. This is the type of place that allows you to stay busy or you can simply... More

We stayed here after a few days in a B&B in Bandera, as we wanted a Ranch experience. We paid £900 for 2 nights, and honestly, it was a waste. Whilst there was organised horse riding twice a day, there was very little else to do all day, and the evenings were very short - any form of 'feature' (as... More

Just got home from a weekend at the Mayan. What a fantastic place for a company retreat! We had meeting rooms for the business side of things and then plenty of activities for our free time. The food was amazing and lots of it. Our trail rides each day were probably the highlight for me. Beautiful scenery and calm horses... More

First we checked in and signed up for the evening horseback ride. Very important to sign up a day in advance for those. Then we went to our cabin, upon arrival our cabin was quaint and rustic, no frills expected. Large space for closet hanging clothes. Although I ended up wearing a t-shirt, jeans and boots all 3 days. Take... More

I have to qualify my four stars. We were looking for a place to host our foreign executives, so we stayed here to check out the amenities. Fun? Yes! Upscale? Nope. We decided that we'd bring our family and friends here, but for executives, it didn't serve our needs. This place is best suited for kids outings, tourists wanting a... More

this was a great few days and exactly what we were expecting. The cabins in the woods are great and the cowboy delivering coffee in the morning whilst sitting on the porch watching deer grazing a few feet away was super good. Breakfast at the river was also a good thing to do at least once. The trail rides twice... More

We stayed here one night. We had live Texas country n western music. The smoked turkey they served here is about the best I have ever had. It was very moist and had a unique flavor profile that was delicious. The cabins are rustic but comfortable. We saw numerous deer running around. The Hicks family and staff were "down home"... More

This was the highlight of our Texas trip. We loved the ranch and especially the Hicks family who are the friendliest people in Texas. Cabins are lovely and very homely it is great to wake up to find young deer grazing outside. The horse riding is good and the horses are very sweet and easy to ride. We had some... More

My family and I have been going here every summer for 23 years. The food is great and there is lots of activities like horse back riding, swimming, and lots of good programs for the grand kids. What really makes it great is the Hicks family that run the ranch. They have almost become like part of our family and... More
