“Welcome to the Wilderness....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Lately I've stayed in both budget and upscale hotels. Sometimes both surprise you. The WOW factor for Hyatt Lost Pines is not so much the hotel, but it's location. I don't think I have ever stayed at a hotel that has taken better advantage of its natural surroundings. This one backs up to the lower Colorado River, giving guests plenty of opportunity to soak up nature and hike, bike or horseback the 18+ miles of trails. The staff is over the top. Never crossed paths with a single employee that did not welcome me, speak to me, or ask what they could do for me. There's a resort fee that covers the complimentary bikes (one hour free) the water park with lazy river, slide, kiddie and adult pools (even a sand beach), s'mores at the fire pit, and the rocking chairs overlooking the river. There's a golf course, stable, spa, and a disc golf course running right along the river, and plenty of bird and butterfly-watching. Don't miss taking pics of T-Bone and Rib-Eye, the resident Texas Longhorns. The best food bargain is the $8 Tacos Pastor, recommended by the bartenders and worth every bite. It is a pricey stay, though so be prepared for that. But it is more than just a pricey hotel, and the natural surroundings are priceless.

Room Tip: I had a balcony room and it overlooke the butterfly garden and longhorn pasture. Not a cheap room b...

Lost Pines is a great family resort! There are many activities for kids of all ages and for families. Your family can enjoy watching the movies outdoors each night after S'mores or floating down the lazy river during the day. There is also a pool for Adults Only, a spectacular golf course and wonderful day spa. You can find great deals online when booking your visit to Lost Pines. My family and I have been coming back every summer for the past three years and plan to continue to do so for many more!

We just returned from this hotel and I'm sad to say I did not enjoy our stay.

Upon arrival our reservation and the price we booked a room for was wrong. I hoped this was the end of problems when we checked in but boy was I wrong.

Our first night in our room... The AC wasn't working properly. We called the front desk and were given two box fans at 1am. I'm HIGHLY allergic to dust and explained to the front desk we could not be in the room for them to "work" on it so they resorted to the box fans. Really? $300 a night room was reduced to a $150 + all the fees/taxes that are added to it.

The next day I complained enough that we were moved to a different room. We left to visit bastrop for a couple of hours. When we returned our toilet was not working. Here we go again.... Really could this much go wrong in a two night stay??? It could and it did. Come to find out housekeeping had been flushing soap bars down in the toilet. A guy had to come and dig it out. :/ $100 off our hotel room was given for this mistake. Again you're paying $300 a night so take it down to $200 now (don't forget to add all the taxes and fees).

Everything is beyond over priced at this place! The rooms weren't that clean and def not what I expected for the price. Every extra activity that you would like to try will cost a small fortune. In the end for a two night stay we walked out of there spending $800! Yes $800 and that's with the $250 discount! Wow!

I plan to call corporate office and complain of our experience on Monday bc the front desk made it known our problems weren't their problems!

Our medical group returned to the Hyatt Lost Pines resort for our annual retreat this past weekend. As usual, we arrived to welcoming staff and everything in order. This year, however, a thunderstorm caused changes to our plans. From what I could tell, the staff handled everything very well. Our meeting room was comfortable and well stocked.

The resort rooms were very quiet and comfortable. The kids had fun riding bikes and enjoying the lazy river and water slide.

Our family is looking forward to our next visit there.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side of the hotel are probably quieter, but have a longer walk to the activities.

Hyatt Lost Pines is one of my favorite Spa Resorts in Texas. A two hour 15 minute no traffic drive from Houston. You turn off 71, and proceed down this very hilly, winding and heavily forested roadway to the property, stopping for the occasional horse or animal crossing. Then you come upon this well done hotel resort. They greet you at Valet and check in, very friendly and quick unload and registration. We had been here several times before and prefer a room on the south side 1st floor with patio, which is closest to the pool, spa and all the food areas. The rooms are a nice size, well appointed and kept in fine repair. The beds are pillow top, big screen tv"s, big bathrooms, lots of well placed outlets, mini fridge and coffee making. We chose a junior sweet with a connecting room with my family of 6. Did I mention it was Mothers day weekend.
The service in all areas was great.
The food is adequate, very average. .Very disappointed with one meal, but they tried real hard to make it right.
The Spa is awesome, great wet areas, relax room, treatment rooms and my massage was excellent, I am very picky.

This is a very family friendly place, kids buffets, kids menus, smore's every night, activities everyday, movies at night, activity room and camp Hyatt. Did I mention the awesome pools, waterslide and lazy river. They also have other activities such as tennis,fishing kayaking, horseback riding, ziplines, eco tours and Did I mention one of the top golf courses in Texas..

There are also places you can escape if you have no kids on the trip, adult only pool, spa pool, awesome bar with back porch, fire pit and live music.

Room Tip: South side, rooms with a patio, first floor, close to spa,pool, restaurants and easy access to ballr...

We've recently returned from a 2 night getaway to Lost Pines Hyatt and really enjoyed ourselves. The grounds are beautiful, extremely relaxing and felt more like a large B&B than a resort. We went midweek as an anniversary trip for couples and the resort was very quiet then. By the time we were leaving on Friday, the families and kiddos were arriving. If you prefer quiet and serene, I'd say midweek is best. But, you could see how families would love it too as there's no shortage of things for kids to do. The lazy river wasn't quite as lazy with all the families as kids but again, it's just whatever suits your preferences. The restaurants are nice but pretty pricey. Beautiful golf course - great views and lots of wildlife around. We didn't have time to enjoy a lot of the outdoor activities but there are many to choose from: archery, skeet shooting, horseback riding, kayaking/canoeing, hiking, etc.
Overall, a great place to feel like you're getting away but just a quick drive from Austin.
Oh and they're pet friendly!

Where oh where do I even begin?! This hotel is the BEST family vacation spot near Austin and Houston! Families everywhere - kids for your kids to play with - swimming - games and more. Then great food - great wine selections - mixed drinks - and places to sit and watch the day go by. But bring your wallet and credit cards - it is priced nicely too!
