Lost Pines is another great example of the Hyatt resort formula - pick a pretty site, add in landscaping and water features that look like they were always there, provide plenty of free activities, offer really very good food and then add in a service-minded and enthusiastic staff. This is our second trip and it was every bit as good as the first. I won't go into detail about the hotel since this has been amply covered by other reviewers, but I do want to mention a few things.
1 - I love the fact that there is so much shade. Even if we got out there mid-morning, there were plenty of chaises in the shade available out by the pool.
2 - The Regency club is fantastic. I should note that the club is only open during the summer and on holiday weekends the rest of the year, but I think it is the best Regency Club we have ever been to. The staff is so wonderful and accommodating, the food changes a fair bit and honestly, if you are not a big eater, the dinner offerings could be made into a meal. Breakfast is continental but certainly enough for a meal, there is no lunch service but there are snacks and drinks out all afternoon, and then evening service consists of several cheeses, crackers, hummus, a crudite platter, some seafood related thing (oysters, crab claws) and then some hot appetizer (small samosas, etc) - at least while we were there. This is not super gourmet food but it is tasty, nicely presented and easy, with no waiting for a table or for a waitress. The staff is top-notch - so lovely.
3 - Let me also say that the lunches we had at the resort were fantastic - the Texas/goat cheese BLT is hands down the best BLT I have EVER had and I have tried a lot of BLT's!
Overall, a wonderful place to disengage from regular life and enjoy some time with your family. We will be back without question.
