“Great place to get away from it all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We enjoyed our recent stay here. Very comfortable resort and friendly helpful service. Great place to serve as a base for Big Bend activities since it lies between the state and national parks and close to Terlingua. Only wish it was a little easier to get to.
Our room was comfortable and extremely clean. Large room but layout did not lend itself to two beds which caused some congestion. Fireplace in room was a very nice touch.
Restaurant was good but perhaps not great. View and outdoor seating was very nice. Menu could use a little more variety.
We would stay again if in the area and would recommend to friends.

Just spent three nights at Lajitas Resort, and it was wonderful. This is a great place to stay if you're just touring the Big Bend without camping in the park. Very near the park entrance and other neat places.

Wonderful room and restaurant. Just a good experience

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cavalry section and were very please with the surroundings. Quite and peaceful!

Wife four kids and a long drive from Michigan, we were looking for a quiet oasis to get some rest near the Mexican border. We decided the small town of Presidio wasn't going to do it and chose Lajitas. Although we got in late and left after breakfast, we were thrilled with the grounds, the fountains, the decor in the rooms and a wonderful breakfast. The drive through Big Bend to Presidio was breath-taking. I want to return and check out the golf course, the shooting range and even the hunting opportunities. It was a slice of heaven all bundled up in a few hour stay. We'll be back!

My fiance and I took an eight hour road trip to get to Lajitas, with the intention of hiking at Big Bend and doing a day trip to marfa. He is a golfer so he brought his clubs along, but didn't have any level of expectation for the course, or the trip in general.
There were so many great aspects of this hotel, that made our experience really wonderful and why we'll definitely be back.
Firstly, the golf course was beautiful, surrounded by mountains and steps from our room. It was as much a delight for me to just ride around in the cart while he played, because I had the chance to photograph the course and surroundings. He thought it was one of the better golf experiences he's had.
Secondly, the location of the hotel is great-- only about 15 minutes to Terlingua for the bit of nightlife we had, about an hour to a great hike we did in the park called "The Window", and a little over two hours to Marfa, which is a whole experience in and of itself.
The hotel definitely has a family-run sort of feel to it. The bakery on site is pretty low key and food was rather un-displayed on industrial looking bakery racks. The woman at the front desk was very real, and super busy-- seemingly very un-corporate, but in a refreshing way.
The food at the hotel is not really anything to rave about, but I don't think one goes to Lajitas for the dining-- and the experience very much outweighs that reality.
Oh, and we received a third night free as part of a special they're running. Just another great aspect of the trip.
It just felt like we were a world away from our lives in Austin, and we'll definitely be back.

Golf conditions were very good. Golf staff very accommodating to our needs. Beauty is incredible hotel is excellent. Hotel staff very responsive to meeting our requests. Rooms spacious with nice amenities. We will choose to stay in condos next trip which will be our 3rd in less than a year. 2 couples sharing condo is very spacious. THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIUL GOLF COURSE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS. So sorry I've lived in Texas for 25+years & not visited. I've sent 5 couples since my initial visit & they, too, have raved about the golf course, hotel accommodations and friendliness of the staff. Golf course continues to be improved and manicured to resort standards. Wonderful place for family events and golf enthusiasts!! Going again in late May!!

Room Tip: No elevator in hotel. Difficult for older people to climb steep stairs, or those with bad knees. Con...

Made reservation online, printed copy reservation with confirmation number. Showed up at 5:00PM on day of reservation to check in. They can't find any record of it. Showed them my copy of reservation with confirmation number. They discovered that they had the day right but the wrong month in their records. Apparently there is a disconnect between the online reservation system and their official reservation system. They had no rooms available for us. Best they could do was put us up in a hotel in Alpine over 100 miles away. Promised to send vouchers for two nights free stay in the future, haven't seen them yet and frankly don't expect to. Check your reservations by phone, don't depend on the online reservations system, apparently it's unreliable. Confirm Confirm Confirm

We were able to secure a very good rate so we decided to stay here during our visit to BBNP. Even though we would have loved to explore the resort, we ended up spending most of our time hiking and sightseeing in the NP, leaving early and arriving late.

The gentleman at check-in was efficient and friendly - just what you hope for after a long drive (same experience upon check-out, except with a female employee that time). I asked to see two different types of rooms and was kindly obliged. We saw a standard, 2-Queen room in the hotel section, above the registration area and while we were more than satisfied with the size, cleanliness, and location of the room, we elected to see a deluxe 2-Queen room in the Calvary Post building, which is across the street from the registration/hotel lobby. We went with the deluxe for the slightly bigger size of the bedroom and bathroom. Really, either room would have sufficed, again, since our only time in the room was spent sleeping and showering. Thankfully we didn't have any issues with the heater since it became cold enough for snow to blanket the area for two days of our trip. We didn't have any issues with loudness of neighbors or outside noise from vehicles (off of one of the main roads, 170, in and out of BBSP/NP).

The location is roughly a 30-40 minute drive to the NP, again, depending on your speed, traffic, and conditions of the road. Considering the quality vs. other lodging options int he area (also size and offered amenities of the resort), it is worth the extra drive if you feel closer lodging makes more sense for time management purposes. You will pass Terlingua on your way to the park(s) and the town offers dining choices, one of which is the delicious Starlight Theater (see sep. review).

I'm not one to dwell on the decor of a room (unless it poses a safety hazard and needs to be replaced!) but there are some noteworthy items to share regarding our western style themed room. The semi-vaulted ceilings were adorned with beautiful post and beam, evoking a log cabin feel. Each of the beds (both were very comfortable!) had large, matching wooden headboards, with equally impressive frames and foot boards. All of the light fixtures matched the theme of the decor, adding to the essence of the room. My favorite part of our room was the very nice, wall-to-ceiling tiled doorless shower that greeted you with a large rain showerhead. Adding to the shower experience was the strong water pressure and plentiful hot water. The Crabtree & Evelyn bath products garnished the experience!

No, we weren't able to enjoy any of the facilities since we were busy hiking throughout our stay (no not even dining!) but we can attest to the cleanliness of the rooms and grounds and the friendliness/professionalism of the staff. Our great rate was the cherry on top.

We will definitely plan on returning when the occasion calls for it!

Room Tip: If you want to be in the same vicinity of the dining areas, lobby, and excursion desk, stay in the...
