“This is not a resort”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Here for a business meeting. It would be a great place with some renovations. The rooms need paint, new carpet, new bathrooms, mold in the shower is not good. Beds were good. No elevators to the 2nd floor. Refrigerator sits on the floor and is small. Hard to deal with on the floor.

After August they have no open restaurant. This place is really more suited to a kids camp in the summer time.

Service here is good for the most part. Only complaint was a request to change to a first floor room. After dead silence, the reply was there were none. One of our group came in 30 minutes later and requested a first floor room and got one. I have to say that the staff here is very friendly and nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room with a porch.

A mixed group of friends of mine went for a long weekend to this rural resort near New Braunfels. We rented a two bedroom condo for two nights. The facility has tennis courts, swimming pools, a basketball court and even an inside tennis court. The rate of about $400+ night was a bit pricey I thought, but did include a reasonable breakfast. The location is nice and the rooms were decent with a fridge, stove. Room was clean with a little deck area that backed up to a wood, where there were plenty of deer, who often came up to the buildings. Entertainment nearby included river rafting down a quiet river, the Comal ($15 which includes the inner tube). Staff was courteous. There are a few restaurants in the area as well It is also next to Newks Tennis Ranch, where its possible to get tennis instruction, though I believe some is also available at the resort itself. I would give the place 3.5 stars, but this site does allow it.
Overall, we had a pleasant experience and are considering to visit again.

Room Tip: There is a variety of rooms to choose from, so inquire or go to their website.

T Bar M was more than we could have asked for! As soon as we arrived we saw a family of deer!! Beautiful!! They were everywhere! Watch out for deer poop when your walking!! Didn't bother us!! The game room and gym were so much fun for all four of us!! The lowest priced room was great!! Next time we'd like to stay in one of the condos. Best part, it is run by a Christian family. This place is beautiful, worth the money w all the extra free family stuff! Better than I expected!!

Stayed here for Labor Day Weekend and was so happy we had found this place. What a diamond in the rough.. Its a very busy place but their is plenty of room and lots to do. The best time to go is when the Sports Complex is open to non-camp folks. Which is Sept 1 - May 22... Book a weekend and see for yourself.. My next stay will be in the cabins they look very nice. Thanks T Bar M Resort Staff...

Just spent Labor Day Weekend here and my family had a great time! There is a ton to do--we were thinking about any other places we've been that had more to do...couldn't think of any. While it was busy, there were lots of quiet areas to be by yourself both inside and outside. It's very nice but I guess it's not "fancy" so maybe that's why some folks don't consider it a resort. It's not the type where people wait on you hand and foot...but I paid a very fair price for what we got. The room was nice (simple) but had what we needed...besides, we were too busy to spend much time there. I was surpised at all the extras that nice hotels don't offer...Starbucks coffee in the room, free popcorn and movie, smores at the campfire, free goldfish in the lobby for my 6 year old, a free breakfast which was very nice, the pools were great, the bikes worked, the rocking chairs were very comfortable. Again, it is an active type resort and it is very kid friendly, but it looked like kidless adults enjoyed it too. I will not hesitate to go back in a minute!

This is an awesome resort , friendly staff and a lot of things to do . My kids were excited to go back from a day in the water park to the resort. Breakfast was a plus , Maria was very friendly and very attentive . My favorite is the nightly movies with free ice cream and popcorn. We are definitely coming back ...Thanks to Tbarm M resort staff for your great work.

We are a family on a budget and were referred to T Bar M by a friend who promised our kids would have plenty to do without spending alot of money. We were thrilled that after a long car ride, the kids were able to burn off some energy at the pool and the putting green. The table games in the gym were a huge hit with our middle school boys. I was comfortable in the friendly atmosphere and felt safe letting the kids enjoy the different activities. Our first evening was so relaxing. Our younger children loved watching the movie outside with popcorn while our older children played on the putting green which glows at night. We all had ice cream before getting ready for bed. This was all free of charge. Our room was very nice and the staff was helpful and friendly. The front desk staff even helped us pick out an affordable restaurant and activities in New Braunfels. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Our room was in the hotel and had two queen beds. It was very nice. The staff did tell us about litt...
