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

The Mayan dude Ranch is all about family. This dude ranch has been owned and operated by the same family for almost 65 years!!! Second and third generations of the same family now work many jobs at the ranch, and you will see and talk to them throughout the day. The guests also include many multi-generational families!! Some couples who... More

Our first trip of this kind and we will do it again! My boys loved it. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, activities kept my 4 boys (and my wife and I) busy, food was delicious and plentiful, family owners/staff were so gracious. Grounds were always picked up yet you never saw anyone picking up trash. Horse rides were pleasant... More

I used to go to the ranch with my family when I was a child, and I remember it being so much fun. My husband and I took our two kiddos last week for our family vacation. We loved it and so did the kids. My son said it was his favorite vacation (better than the cruise he went on... More

We booked the Mayan Ranch for two days in June, and our only regret is that we did not book it for longer! We have a six year old girl and we had a fabulous time. Here's the breakdown.
