“We love the Lajitas Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Just got back from another stay at Lajitas, this is our 3rd year in a row. We love this place. The rooms are great, ....clean and spacious....the Restaurant, Octotillo, has great food too. The staff always goes out of their way to make everything perfect. We love touring around Big Bend National Park and this resort is the perfect place to stay. Already can not wait for our visit next year, you really can not go wrong making Lajitas your destination in the Big Bend area.

Room Tip: We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary on this last visit and the Henry Clay Suite was a perfect way...

We enjoyed our stay very much thanks to the hospitality of the staff and the perfect jumping off point of the hotel. We did a sunrise horseback ride to a wonderful spot and enjoyed breakfast burritos and mimosas. We hadn't ridden in years and Karen made it seem easy despite the seemingly rough terrian. John, the Lajitas property manager, was very interested in our comments about the property and was the perfect host. The pool was a great spot to relax and cool off in the afternoons and the surrounding scenery is just gorgeous.

Our only hiccup was with our reservation. We had reserved through the website which indicated there was availability in the Officers Quarters. When we arrived, that wasn't the case. We were given one of the condo apartments which was very comfortable but didn't have the view Officers Quarters. All in all, it ended up being fine but next time we'll call instead.

Room Tip: Call if you want a particular room

My wife and I recently had an opportunity to stay for a wonderful weekend at the Lajitas Golf Resort and Spa. The scenery was breathtaking, the food was wonderful, and the service was top notch. There is a world class golfing, horse back riding, and hunting to be had, but we had the time of our lives and did NONE of these! We toured, hiked, ate and slept like babies. Do not miss this one. Go out of your way to make this "bucket list" stop.

Room Tip: So far as we could tell, all of the rooms were terrific.

Had the pleasure of spending three days at the Lajitas Golf Resort, and was extremely pleased with the property and the staff that went out of there way to be sure we were satisified. Debbie was a staff member who went above and beyond to be sure everything was just right! She is "special"! We played golf and the scenery is UNBELIEVABLE....A great experience! I could continue but rather than ...just book it and you will see!

Room Tip: corner suite officers quarters..a great view overlooking the golf coarse

This place is big and beautiful - just like Texas! There is so much to do right around the Lajitas resort, you really don't have to leave. We brought two 10 year old boys and stayed busy the entire time! From hiking and swimming to the cowboy shootout, horseback riding and the fossil museum/dig, we didn't even have time for golf.
The staff is so friendly and helpful too! They set up an open fire for us so we could roast s'mores after eating at the great restaurant on site.
We stayed in a suite at La Cuesta. The cowboys chic decor was nice and comfortable, and we certainly slept well too. The rooms were very spacious, and the mexican tile floors were just the right look. We loved the large grass area in front of the rooms on the way to the pool; it gave our dog a good place to run.

Hotel is located just outside Big Bend NP alongside Rio Grande. It is well located to explore the area and so met our needs.
The architecture on main building is inspired by stereotypical western towns. We stayed two nights in the Badlands hotel where our room was both quiet and comfortable. The ambience lighting was nice but there was no means to really brighten the room which could have been a little cleaner.
We did eat breakfast one morning in the hotel cafe. The servings were huge (Texas sized pancakes are just that!) one serving will feed at least two.
We found the activities coordinator to be particularly helpful. We booked a sunset horse ride to Stargazer Mesa. The outing was very enjoyable but one should know that, if all goes well, your horse ride should return you to stables before darkness falls so the name “Stargazer” is somewhat a misnomer.
Our other dinner was at the nearby Starlight Theater in Terlingua (highly recommend).
Overall our experience at Lajitas was such that we would recommend.

Great resort, very nice rooms, had a room over looking the golf course in the officer's quarter. The resort is built on an old fort, some of the ruins are still there and others were restored to be the new resort. First class restaurant, (pricey) not any other place around to eat unless you drive to Terlingua 12 miles away. We rode horses at dawn, just a lovely experience all the way.Quite place. Great views of the mountains. Everyone was friendly. Loved it!!

Room Tip: Get a room over looking golf course in the officers quarters, huge room with a sitting room.
