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

We went to the Flying L for the day to go horse riding and to its water park. The horse riding was wonderful and I highly recommend it. The water park was ok, but, the food service at the water park fast food window was horrible. After waiting in line for 40 minutes it took another 45 plus minutes to... More

We sepnt 4 days & 3 nights during Riverfest weekend in Bandera. We enjoyed the nightly entertainment, especially the great storyteller. There are s'mores you can make nightly over the campfire. We were so busy we didn't have time to make it to the watermark on the grounds but we did spend Saturday evening taking the ride to the ghost... More

This is a great resort for families. The water park is large with good variety, the activities are ran well, and the rooms are nice. My only complaint is the food could use some improvement and lunch should be included for the price.

My Aunt & Uncle live here and it is beautiful! I traveled with two boys (15 & 12). We went horse back riding and had a great trail guide. The boys loved riding around the grounds in a golf cart. We played a round of miniature gold and enjoyed s'mores & stories by the campfire after a horse-drawn wagon ride.... More

Three in our party contracted a very painful food poisoning after eating the dinner that's included as part of their package. The food was beyond terrible in every way. We couldn't find one decent place to eat in Bandera either and the service at the Flying L Ranch was awful. They neglect to tell people (or point out in the... More

My husband and I visited the Flying L Guest Ranch through Interval International. We rented a one bedroom unit and stayed for a week. We had a great time visiting Bandera and San Antonio is an hour a way. We also visited the Natural Caverns. We participated in a few events on the Ranch and would highly recommend their pizza...
