OK,,,,,,, here’s the scoop. You need to have your expectations properly aligned with what type of accommodations are here. Not a Four Seasons type of hotel, but an “off the charts” five star experience nonetheless. I LOVED my stay here. My family LOVED our stay here. Having said all that, let’s get to work on trying to “align your expectations”. A good place to start is with the cons. When you turn off the paved Hwy 67, you are greeted by a plain Jane farm gate and four miles of bumpy dirt roads that lead you to your accommodations . (I was glad I drove my RAM pick up truck and not my wife’s BMW). When you check in and sign all of the paper work, don’t ask for a key to your room, because there isn’t any. Yes you can lock your door from the inside at night if you like, but no key is necessary, as everyone staying here are good people, just like you. Call it Boy Scouts honor, or whatever you like. If you are expecting the maid to come in during the day to clean up, change linens, and perhaps leave a chocolate mint on your pillow, you are in for a long wait. You make your own bed, and you learn not to soil your sheets, because they don’t come to your room during your stay. The room reminded me of a quaint bed and breakfast I stayed at in Taos, New Mexico. Mexican/Southwest style, wood burning fireplace in the corner, clean (but not impeccably clean). OK, now that I’ve shocked you, let’s get to the good stuff. You will always, and I mean ALWAYS remember your stay at Cibolo Creek Ranch. The History, including the in-house museums will enlighten you and intrigue you. The Hummer guided tour of the 45,000 acre ranch will saturate your senses like never before. Breathtaking, awesome, incredible!! The chef cooked meals, in a quaint family style dining area will have you begging for more. There is definitely a spiritual connection to be made here, like no other place I have ever visited. Totally unique, totally SW Texas. If you think you can find another place as good as this in the Marfa, Presidio area, forget it. It doesn’t exist. Yes it is pricey, but TOTALLY WORTH IT!!

I was excited to visit Marfa and booked a 3-night stay on-line. I called the hotel and let them know my wife and I were coming down to visit Marfa to visit art scene. Never did they offer that Marfa was shut down due to Covid. Three hours later, after trying to make dinner reservations in town and schedule art tours--I called the hotel back to cancel the reservation and let them know we would come back when Marfa was again open. They insisted on charging me $900, saying that it was their "policy." I asked to speak with the manager and left my name and number but never a word heard back. If you want to spoil yourself with an expensive vacation at a great place, take this one off your list!

My wife and I recently stayed at Cibolo Creek for our anniversary. We chose the Ranch because it was away from everything so we could enjoy ourselves during COVID isolation. We fly into Marfa and drove to the Ranch. Upon arriving it is like stepping back into a Spanish/Mexican Hacienda. The architecture is spot-on authentic. I have visited some Haciendas in Mexico and this one was exactly like what you would see in Mexico. The staff from the front office to the restaurant/bar to the maids were outstanding and very friendly and accomodating. We arrived on a Wednesday so my wife and I were the only ones seated for dinner and boy was the food great. The great good continued to breakfast the next day and on into lunch and dinner. I would say you come here for the beautiful scenery (the Chinati Mountains are all around you) but you stay for the food and hospitality. As has been said before, this not your ordinary Dude Ranch, its very upscale but also very comfortable and accomodating. We can't wait to return this summer. Thanks again for such a wonderful trip.

My wife and I made last minute reservations for Thanksgiving, after we sadly canceled our large extended family gathering due to COVID. The resort is in a stunning location. The drive in on route 67 is awesome - classic West Texas desert, through the cool town of Marfa, and great views of the beautiful Chinati mountains. Awesome. The resort grounds - and the facility itself - are top notch. It has an understated look as you drive up, but you'll soon appreciate the meticulous design and construction/restoration work. The buildings are extremely faithful to the original structures, and we noted the great craftsmanship everywhere throughout our stay. Our room was comfortable and spectacularly furnished. We found the absence of room TVs to be a plus and contribute to the vibe of the ranch setting. We similarly found the dining room and other common areas perfectly done. It all set a terrific mood. We had dinner (very nice beef) Wednesday and Thanksgiving dinner Thursday. Both were very good, as were breakfast on Thursday and Friday. The food was well prepared and the COVID-driven seating arrangements in the dining room thoughtfully done. All these accolades - so why only 3 stars? The subpar service. Now, by subpar service I do not mean rude staff. There were extremely friendly and courteous. Nor do I mean lack of staff - there was enough coverage to take care of the full house. Rather, it was our impression that the staff is not trained to provide 5 star service. And they didn't. The "shortcomings" all fall under the first world problems category. Especially given this tumultuous time. But when you are shelling out $1,000 a night (king size room, tax, dinners, wine, and the service charge) you do expect some basics. Instead: - in the week leading up to our arrival, I called the resort to find out if I needed to make dining room reservations. I called during normal business hours but got a recording saying that they would call me during regular hours. I made the same call the next day. And the next. And the next. In all, I left messages 4 days in a row with no callback. I then emailed and finally heard back 2 days later. - upon check-in, we got not even a brief description of the property, activity options, or dining program. Nothing. And, after we left the office and lugged our bags to the room (it's a bit of a walk, over gravel), I asked if there was a resort map and listing of activities in the room. I was told "that's in the office". So I trekked back to get them. - the staff member who guided us to our room casually mentioned that there were no room keys. All guest rooms are unlocked. I like the vibe this creates but would have loved to hear more about the reason. I'll bet there's a good story/culture objective but we didn't hear it. - at dinner, on both nights, we were simply served water with no description of other beverage options. I asked for a wine list and it appeared to catch our waitress off guard. She brought it, and our tablemates at the other end asked for one too. They were told (very politely) that they would have to share with us. - this is a tiny one, but when we ordered our wine the server simply filled up all the glasses. No cork inspection, no small pour for a taste, no asking for the green light to dispense it. Both nights. - both nights, our dinner was simply brought out and dropped in front of us (and our tablemates). No description of the items and no confirmation that it was consistent with prior requests (they did ask about dietary restrictions when I made the reservations). The plates were just plopped in front of us. - no after-dinner drink offerings. My wife flagged down our server after dinner the first night and asked for coffee. The request seemed to surprise our server, and the bland coffee was slow to come. We didn't bother the second night. - we went on two of the hikes, guided by brochures. Both were a full page of text. A simple map would have been extremely helpful - especially since the text descriptions had factual errors and were clearly very old. - we departed Friday morning, and walked to the office at 8:30 AM to settle our bill. But it was locked, with no sign as to when they'd open. There were no check-out directions given to us when we arrived and nothing in the room to guide us. So we simply left. (We got the final bill via email and it was 100% accurate). None of these small snafus made a major dent in our enjoyment. And I'll confess I feel like a snob even writing some of them. But for the premium pricing, I did expect premium service. From the other reviews and the overall great reputation, it's clear this place can deliver on that. Just not this Thanksgiving.

My family and I stayed in Cibolo Creek Ranch for 3 nights during the thanksgiving week! We felt safe and comfortable during the ongoing pandemic! Staff were friendly and warm! The ranch offers a number of activities, we enjoyed the peace! On the flip side, their prices were exorbitant for the value they offered in terms of rooms, activities et all! I would have expected a 5 star plus treatment for the money we paid (upwards of 800$ per night ) for a 2 adults and a child room, definitely the service was no where close to it, dinners were 85$ a night, we are vegetarians, surely did not feel the worth, to top it all, they charge 15% service fee for the dinner separately and the overall bill separately. Overall good place but DEFINITELY no way value for what you spend!
