My husband surprised me with a weekend stay in the Owners Suite at Escondida. It was a real treat! Food was delicious! All of the posts concerning the "laid back" atmosphere are correct. We had massages at the spa and enjoyed the grounds. We took day trips into Medina & Bandera and toured the area. One evening, after dinner, we... More

I agree with the poster who said the property is more akin to a bed and breakfast than a true resort. Nonetheless, my husband and I enjoyed the trip. We felt like we had the property to ourselves (even though there were other guests) which was really, really nice. We enjoyed having pool and jacuzzi to ourselves, but also meeting... More

Stayed for a couple of days with the wife and had a fine time. Here are the caveats. It's a lovely property with nice but average rooms. There is no phone service but the internet is adequate. Service is what you'd expect at a B&B verses a "Resort." Bring your own drinks, snacks, etc. The meals are one plate of... More

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon here and it was perfect! Pam and Dawn took great care of us, as well as the other guests. It really shows they love what they do and want you to enjoy your stay. The food was an unexpected surprise as well. Dawn is an amazing cook. They are vegan... More

Loved this treasure; really felt rested after the weekend. The building is reminiscent of San Miguel architecture. There's a pretty little dammed up creek, pool, hot tub and very good food (breakfast & dinner are included). Nice hike on the property, clean room.

I treated myself and two daughters to a girls' weekend at Escondida Resort. The property is beautiful and the main area is very well appointed and comfortable. Our room was over the top beautiful with the colorful tiles and furniture. The main meeting and dining area felt like being in a private home. Dawn and Pam are so friendly and... More

What a relaxing, wonderful place to unwind and just relax! The rooms were comfortable and roomy with a fireplace and comfy chairs! We were treated like queens! The spa treatments were fantastic! The food was awesome! Dawn and Pam made sure that our every need was met and more. I highly recommend Escondida Resort for your next getaway!

I fell in LOVE with Escondida from the moment we entered the gate to the property! The beautiful grounds and surroundings were absolutely breathtaking. The accommodations were comfortable and so inviting. The overstuffed, fluffy comfortable chairs right next to the stone fireplace had my name written all over them! As I sat in my robe and pj's and read, I... More

We recently stayed the weekend at this resort after seeing it advertised on Texas Country Reporter. It is very isolated and perfect if you are looking for some down time. No cell or internet service so be prepared to take a step back in time. You are approximately 15 miles from the nearest town which sometimes is a blessing in... More

This was our second trip to Escondida Resort and we were sooooo happy to be back. (we missed last year as the property was sold out on the weekend the three of us could get away) If you want to get away from it all, this is absolutely the place to be. Please be reminded - there is noooo cell... More
