The flies [flying insects] in the restaurant & bar are extremely terrible. I wrote to the hotel management about this issue but never heard back. I bought a very nice / expensive bottle of red wine to celebrate Mother's Day to be ruined by a fly dropping into my wife's glass with no action from the restaurant but a new glass.
The shopping area connected to the resort has an outfitters store, a womens store and one nice restaurant. Additionally the Boardwalk Bakery and Pizzeria is there, which did have good pizza and ice cream, although not much in the way of baked goods. We were staying in the RV resort so I can’t comment on the hotel. Also part of the complex is the Lajitas General Store, where they make sandwiches, but have few options of actual groceries.
I have mixed feelings regarding this hotel after spending 4 nights here. The place is reasonably nice and is quite large. It’s way overpriced though. While prices are partly attributable to the isolated location they still sting. We stayed here because we wanted to see Big Bend National Park. Terlingua is a much better location but the lodging options there are a lot more rustic. The hotel is right next door to Big Bend Ranch State Park which is a plus. The resort itself is very dated. The bar and restaurant remind me of a country club circa 1975. The facilities are designed to look like a fake frontier town and remind me of a tourist attraction from the 1960s or 70s. They also have Confederate statues that are in poor taste, to say the least, and are woefully out-of-date. Our room (#111) was pretty nice. It had antique-like wooden furniture which was very solid. Some might find it dated but I was ok with it. The biggest problem was the fact that they moved the sink from the very large bathroom to the bedroom. This made no sense, really shrank the room and was generally annoying. Our room was located across the street and a five minute walk from the main part of the hotel. We didn’t mind the walk. Food options were very good at breakfast and lunch but lousy at dinner. Food quality was average. Service was generally good with a few exceptions. We didn’t golf but my wife liked the pool. They had a lot of other activities but we didn’t pursue any as we spent our days at Big Bend National Park and State Park.…
Lovely couple of hours enjoying a chat with the friendly professional bartender, great beer on tap & excellent pizza. The views out the plentiful windows were beautiful & the furniture was welcoming & comfortable. Our stay at the Maverick RV park was functional & we enjoyed the area. Easy access to Big Bend Ranch State Park & Big Ben National Park. The drives along the Rio Grande were great & there were lots of paths to walk directly out of the RV park.
The golf is fantastic! The guys at the Pro Shop were friendly and great! The rooms were old, drab, and tired! No elevator, beware if you can't climb stairs! Narrow hallways! Furniture in rooms dirty, worn out end tables, grout and tile in bathroom cracking! Overpriced for the rooms! Find another place to stay. But the golf is amazing!!
We stayed three nights. Room was spacious and had frig. It was nice to come back to after a hot day in the Park, even if the drive was a bit long. Wish that bed linen was softer, and that there had been a bathtub, or at least hot tub at the pool. Restaurant food was tasty (not fancy) and well priced. Buffet breakfast was well priced and ample.
I love this place so much that Im thinking about going to work there. I love life by the Rio Grande river. The mayor of Lajitas Texas is a goat lmao. I couldnt believe it until I seen it with my own eyes! The locals are friendly. I feel like I stepped back in time
We loved everything about our vacation. This resort is quaintly made to look like an old Western town. The room was comfortable. Pool water was a little cold at spring break but the temperature was perfect for laying out and my son ventured in the water. We tried the horse back riding and shooting. Fun! Definitely worth the money. We really enjoyed Big Bend National Park and also seeing the night sky and the milky way as it's a Dark Sky location. It is very remote. The town is small but we had plenty to do and enjoyed the relaxing, serenity. It is a desert. Lots of mountains, mesas and desert terrain. There were very few children but my 10 year old loved the western adventure and we enjoyed the seclusion. The other guests were very friendly as well. We don't golf but there were lots of golfers here. If you're not into golf or nature, or you are looking for lots of other children this may not be the spot for you. IT's also pretty hot. Dry heat. And unless you want to puddle jump into their airport, be prepared for a few hour scenic, relaxing drive.…
We did not stay at the Resort but we did book a horseback ride with them . . . . we went with the Sunset Trail ride and we were not disappointed. The horses are very well taken care of, the tack was in good condition, and it is a joy to ride a healthy, well-trained horse . . .they were very responsive and knew their job well. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about the desert environment and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip with her. We rode to an overlook where we enjoyed a nice wine and cheese plate as we watched the sun go down .. .the scenery was beautiful and the desert at night is so peaceful! This was truly a memorable day on our trip to Big Bend! We heartily recommend it for anyone in the area!!
A True Oasis Exceptional staff, BEAUTIFUL setting, lots of activities. Sad that the Food and Bev manager, Logan, is leaving. Such a natural, welcoming manager! Great place ... BEAUTIFUL location! ... really a great, fun environment. Horse back riding, golfing, and alot more plus a great RV park. Set in an old west environment.
