We attended a 4 day conference at this guest ranch. We stayed in a well equipped handicap room. The overall facility was well maintained and the numerous staff was always very helpful. The food was served buffet style and was mostly tasty. The stay was in early October 2014 and the weather was perfect. There are a number of different... More

Have never written a review before but since I rely on them, I thought maybe this would help someone else. We booked a week but we only lasted 3 nights because of the large bugs. There were large dead bugs laying everywhere when we arrived. We were surprised they were not swept away. When they started showing up inside, we... More

We first visited the Flying L on Valentines weekend to have a quick getaway from Austin and to check it out. We had a big event planned in our home in early August and then wanted 30 plus family members to to join us at a guest ranch in cowboy country. The flying L guest ranch popped on our radar,... More

My daughters and two grandchildren and I enjoyed this beautiful place outside of Bandera this past weekend. We ALL had fun in the water park, except when a large group arrived the next day. That particular group's teens were obnoxious in the river ride...got in everyone else's path; also played rough in the shallow children's area. Groups should be more... More

We spent a long weekend family vacation at Flying L. Our initial impression was less than impressed. REMINDER- initial impressions are not always accurate! We thought we had been given the wrong directions because it seemed like we had driven into a neighborhood. This guest (NOT dude) ranch is in the middle of a subdivision. That being said as we...

When it is almost 100 deg. if you do not want to make frozen drinks, maybe you should not be a bartender. Water park needs friendlier people. Was there for the week, this guy was rude every time. I have been a property owner here for many years, and this was our least enjoyable time. Miniature golf was nice in... More

We stayed at Flying L the week of July 4th. We were so disappointed. It was so expensive for starters. We expected this very nice facility for the money we spent. It was nothing more than a summer camp environment. The basketball goal was broken, the mini golf was awful and all the putters were void of grip and rubber.... More

Went for 3 days over July 4th with kids 8 and 9. I don't play golf, so that wasn't a consideration. We were there to experience a guest ranch. Good: The breakfasts were great. The water park was fun. The horse riding was better than average for this sort of place. Enjoyed the July 4th activities OK: The "chuckwagon dinner"... More
