At 26.04 degrees latitude, the lower Rio Grande valley is at the southernmost point of the mainland United States; practically due west of Miami.Originally carved through citrus groves and built along resacas, the ancient waterways of the Rio Grand Delta, Rancho Viejo offers a golfing paradise, on two par 70 eighteen-hole championship golf courses. Also located on property are two excellent dining facilities and a conference center with plenty of meeting and special occation event rooms. Our award winning swimming pool, with its very large waterfall and beach landing, will remind you of the South Seas.Cruising the resaca aboard the Delta Dawn (coming soon), playing tennis in the evening on lighted tennis courts or an opportunity to practice your golf game on our driving range, chipping and putting greens is also available. Rancho Viejo, dates back to the Espiritu Land Grant by the King of Spain 1771. Ever present is the influence of the Spanish and Mexican heritage. You see it in the red tile roofs, fountains and tropical gardens that grace the public areas of the resort.

The white old guy (Golf Pro) was condescending and downright rude. The rest of the staff seemed nice enough. Course was in crummy shape. But it's southern Texas and very dry and hot. There are much better options in the valley. Stay away from Rancho Viejo unless you like paying too much and being treated like a 2nd class citizen.

This place is an Oasis on a waterway (resaca) which is a former tributary of the Rio Grande River. The golf courses are challenging and well maintained. The club restaurant is excellent and reasonable considering the quality and the atmosphere. The people are friendly and helpful. The tennis courts are new and well lit. But the best part of it is how peaceful it is.

The nice staff cannot makeup for the fact that this place is CRAP. We checked in, immediately asked for extra comforters for my babies, was informed they had NONE. Instead, they gave me more bed sheets. The restroom was FALLING APART. The shower was dirty and full of RUSTY SCUM AND PUBIC HAIR. The toilet paper holder was FALLING OFF THE WALL. The walls were ridiculously DIRTY. It really felt like I had walked in a toddlers playing area-with writings and smudges on the walls. All the Sheetrock is patched up. The door that exits to the lake HAD WATER DAMAGE AND WAS LITERALLY FALLING IN PIECES-it could very easily be kicked in. Lastly, there were broken bottles immediately outside this door. GLASS THAT MY 2 year old daughter was playing in until I realized that there was a BROKEN GLASS BOTTLE. This is my second time here and it was the same experience all over again!! I gave them a second chance but OH MY GOD!!! PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE MAJESTIC PICTURES!!!!

Everyone on staff was genuinely friendly and helpful; they could not have been nicer. The included breakfast buffet was very good, the lunch buffet was really good, but ... the real kudos go to the dinner menu! Do NOT leave without trying their Steak Tampiqueña - yum!! If you're going for golf, which we did, be warned that the short 9-hole course - El Angél - is in the process of being closed down. We played it, and it was fun, but the greens are not being maintained and are rough. The 18-hole El Diablo is a very good course, in very good condition and very playable. The golf practice range is grass and has lots of targets. There is a large, very countoured putting green just behind. They also just opened a high-tech Top Tracer range adjacent to the "regular" range. I didn't try it, but you can look it up and see the different practices and games you can play on it. Only other negative is the pool was closed for maintenance and cleaning while we were there (was not aware where we booked) but otoh the fitness center is really well-equipped and kept very clean.

Did not know what to expect from staying at a Golf Country Club. But it was wonderful, very quiet and you could walk around the pond or you can rent a bike/golf cart and roam the grounds. The hot breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff was always helpful!! Planning to come back with several family members. It was a nice stay.
