Where to start, me and my wife went there as part of our honeymoon. This place is truly a family run place, I can't speak high enough of all the staff who run this place (they really are a big family). I have never felt like I was so welcome, so much in any place I've ever been too. The... More

We visited this week and had a fab time. The guys do a great job. Our cabin was much better than expected. Large, clean, well maintained, amazing aircon and the entertainment was good for the kids and adults alike. You can join in as little or as much as you like. We met lots of great people and thoroughly enjoyed... More

We stayed for 3 days and our family (2 parents and 2 teenage boys) had an amazing time. There was always lots to do, or just lounging by the pool if you need a rest! The people are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, the food is great and so much of it - useful for feeding active... More

Hard to find a vacation spot for a family of 28 ranging in age from 11months to 73 where all can find more than enough to do all day long, but that was certainly our experience- even our teen-age granddaughter that was prepared to be completely bored. Food is unbelievable, the staff made us feel SO SO welcome, and we... More

Our family (consisting of parents and 2 teenagers) spent 5 days at the Mayan Ranch and loved every minute of it! The food is excellent (thank you Timmy!). The cowboy wranglers- Jeremy, Cody and Ryan made the horseback riding real. Swimming in the Medina River was exceptional especially following afternoon horseback riding. Loved the singer at breakfast each morning and... More

Highly recommend for all ages! LOTS of activities for everyone. Cabins are great. Service and food wonderful. Loved the "Cowboy" ambiance. Ranch has been owned and run by the same family for many years. My family enjoyed the authenticity--nothing "fake" about it. They even grow, cut , and bale their own hay for the horses right there on the ranch.

Thank you so much Greg (Hick family) for accomodating us even though we just walked in at 11 pm. We really appreciate your hospitality. What a wonderful birthday gift for my wife Marita. We enjoyed everything during our stay in your beautiful ranch! God bless !

We took our 2 oldest grandchildren ages 11 and 9 here for vacation and they has a blast! They met new friends and experienced so many new things and had so many activities that they were actually disconnected from technology the entire visit. They rode horses twice a day, swam in pool everyday and participated in activities that filled everyday.... More

As visitors from the UK, we had no idea what to expect but The mayan surpassed all our expectations. The welcome from the family is so warm and they all work together to make sure everyone is taken care of and has a good time. We stayed in cabin 12 "the Loft" which was a two bedroom cottage about five... More

This is definitely a Texas ranch and is not your Hilton property. If you're looking for a true Texas ranch experience this may be worth a try. Activities are scheduled throughout the day and we particularly enjoyed the horse rides which were scheduled for morning and afternoon. We stayed in the lodge which was very rustic. There are no coffee... More
