My children and I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort. We all had a fun, relaxing time. There is plenty to do at this resort, for both adults and children.
I took advantage of the web check-in before driving to the resort. I received an SMS when our room was ready, which was an hour before normal check-in time. When we arrived at the resort, we parked at the entrance, checked in with the front desk, and then asked for help to unload our car. Another person then took our luggage to our room after I parked the car. (Self-parking is a short distance away; fortunately we always found a parking spot in the front section.)
Our room had a king bed, chair, desk, TV, and mini refrigerator. (Quite a few people bring food/drinks to keep in the room.) Fortunately we also had a balcony, which was nice to sit & read the paper (delivered to the room each morning) or hang our swimsuits to dry. When we requested housekeeping, they did a great job.
We were given an activity guide for the week, which also mentioned activities for nearby McKinney Roughs. We made S'mores in the evening (8-10pm); hosts gave out pre-made kits. Movies started nightly at 8:45, with blankets/towels and popcorn provided. My kids rode bikes (free for 1st hour) but the main attraction for us was the pool area. There is an activity pool (volleyball/basketball) as well as a small beach and hot tub. The lazy river is connected as well as the slide. (Note that there is no lifeguard on duty at the pool.) There were many seats available around the pool/river; most seats by the river were shaded. Food/drink service is provided at the pool. There is also an adult-only pool, which connects to the lazy river.
We ate breakfast at the Firewheel Cafe each morning, as it was included in our room rate. We chose the buffet, which had a nice selection and included our drinks, although we did not eat enough to get the full value. McDade's, near the lobby, serves ice cream, desserts, coffee, etc. It's worth a visit. The hotel is dog friendly; we saw many guest with their dogs. There are also 2 resident dogs, Hoss & Honey, who are on-site at certain times of the week.
We have been to the Hyatt Hill Country Resort as well, but after this visit, we prefer the Lost Pines location, not just because it is closer for us but also because this resort is newer and the service was better overall. You can do as little or as much as you'd like at this resort and enjoy a fabulous time.
