We stayed in El Cosmico during our road trip from LA to New Orleans in Feb. Originally we chose Yurt, which would be a great adventure, but due to some occurrences on the way, we postponed our stay and were recommended the safari tent. Unfortunately, we were hit with arctic freeze and tent was simply not the option. The staff... More

When the check in staff don't even lift their head up to address you it is either that they are too rude to show a common courtesy or they are ashamed to look at you while they charge such a ridiculous amount for such a basic campground. On-site van was a neat experience although the heater couldn't cope so we... More

El Cosmico was every bit as fantastic of an experience as I had hoped it would be!!! I'll never forget this glamping in a 50's-era vintage trailer, which was chic and well-designed down to the last detail! My husband and I stayed here as we road tripped across Texas and this was definitely the highlight! One or two nights is... More

l loved the decor, my boyfriend and I stayed in the yurt. Kind of a long walk to the restrooms. We definitely felt uncomfortable once we were educated on the powerful fertility rope hanging from the ceiling. Cool to stay here for the one-time experience, but I'd probably try a new place if I ever return to Marfa.

First off, I can only speak on my experience with the safari tent...fabulous. I peeked into some of the refurbished trailers and I think Safari was the way to go. Don't stay here if you are not into outdoor communal bathrooms (the ones here are totally fine and pretty neat if you ask me--the shampoo smells awesome). We rented one... More

Camped in own tent NE side by a hammock - end of November, but more damp than cold. Your own tent is how this place is a value ($12); $85-$150+ for their other accomodations not so cheap. Staff / office / lounge a plus (no uppity staff some mention). Good coffee and a place to use the free wi-fi was... More

I was there in September and we slept in the teepee. That was awesome, there is even a gaz bonfire if you're cold. All amenities are very basic but this is also what i was looking for by going in such a special place. Staff was nice and smiling, common kitchen is the best to meet people and the guys... More

We stayed here in late September for one night and overall we did enjoy our stay here, but maybe we built it up too much or not free spirited enough to fully embrace Marfa life and let the little things get spoil it for us. We stayed in a teepee, it was flawless. I couldn't complain about the service or... More

I loved absolutely everything about El Cosmico. It was the perfect choice for us. We stayed in a safari tent and also in a yurt. Everything was clean, comfortable and the staff was welcoming and accommodating. Excellent coffee in the morning was especially welcome after one cold and raining night. There are so many cool details here, it's definitely an... More

My daughter planned a wonderful long weekend trip to Marfa. We stayed 3 nights. October is perfect weather to sleep in a tent or teepee. Fun vibe, great gathering areas at reception building.. We read and snoozed here during the hottest part of the afternoon. Our tepees and tents were clean and attractive. The linen could have been newer however.... More
