This was our first time ever traveling to the Westgate River Ranch, and a Westgate property in general. We were here on a 3-day, 2-night complimentary military promotional stay that we had won. We are 2 adults and 2 children (6 and 3 years old). We were originally booked for a 2 queen bed suite, upon winning the promotion. Disappointingly,... More

We stayed for Father's Day weekend. The room was nice with a great screened porch. We ate all of our meals on the patio and enjoyed a bbq lunch. We rented a golf cart and had a great time never having to use our car the whole stay. Hubby went skeet shooting and enjoyed it a lot. The petting zoo... More

Checked in for a week. Friday and Saturday nights they offer entertainment at a cost. During the week the activities were limited to certain hours. The airboat or swamp rides would not take just 2 people. Kids were bored out of their minds. We were an hour and a half from Orlando. Closest grocery store was 30 minutes away. Their... More

The Westgate River Ranch is an exciting place if you enjoy country style outings. I took my wife there for her birthday. We checked in on Saturday and checked out on Monday morning. If we were to do it again we probably would have checked in Friday night and then checked out Sunday morning. There weren't that many activities to... More

We have 3 boys. We spent a week there with our boys and puppy. It was a fun time. We enjoyed the area and it was relaxing. It's very hot in the area during the summer not much shade. Also, there needs to be more sidewalks on the property. The other thing we noticed is that there were many ant... More

Just got back from a weeks stay at the River Ranch. The experience was great. It was relaxing, adventurous, entertaining, fun, etc. We stayed in the hotel room portion of the resort. The rooms were great. Dressed in a western theme. The only things I did not like about the room were the beds, air conditioner, and the occasional visit... More

I read the reviews prior to booking this place, so I guess some of my disappoinment is my own doing. The place could be so much more than it is. On the surface there has been a revamp of some of the rooms, and it has been done fairly well. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fully loaded with... More

The resort is very nice. It's natural setting is a perfect habitat cranes, cattle, and even some buffalo are on sight. We had our family reunion there and therefore were entitled to a few of their group opportunities. My family enjoyed the rodeo and the 2 bedroom cottage that our hostess rented for the weekend. Everything about the weekend was... More

Yamira makes the glamping experience welcoming and wonderful. Saturday night was awesome with the rodeo and saloon. Sunday's airboat ride was an adventure but expensive. The petting farm and the care taker was inviting. The grounds are stunning! Overall a great experience but more action or things to do would improve the vacation especially during the week.
