“Resort in the middle of nowhere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Lovely grounds and comfortable rooms. Good mattresses. Very dark in the room even with all lights on for me, but when I checked out I learned that they'd had lanterns available had I thought to ask. Two queen beds but only one chair - at the desk, so a bit crowded. We had a walk-in shower but every room is different. The room next to ours had a claw foot tub. Nice little refrigerator and microwave in the large bathroom.

We really enjoyed the pool, but don't golf. WiFi iffy and slow. Lovely restaurant but plan to spend the night dining as everything moves slow. Disappointing bakery - little selection and seemed leftover. However, fabulous fresh baked cookies in the main lobby afternoons.

We stayed at Lajitas with a car group and found that the resort was wonderful. The food, employees, and facilities were all very nice. Our only complaint was with our noisy neighbors who partied all night. It's too bad that we don't play golf, the course is stunning. We tried to get into the spa for massages but couldn't because there's only one person working there.

Lajitas is like a mirage in the dessert! There is no cell signal, but luckily the hotel has wifi. The hotel is beautiful, and it is really truly in the middle of nowhere. It is along the Rio Grande, on the Mexican border, and it is even beyond the US border patrol checkpoint. However, it does have excellent restaurants, excellent spa services, horseback riding, and amenities you expect from larger big name resorts. The view of the stars and Milky way are astounding. And it is a great starting point for trips in to the breathtaking Big Bend National Park.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the main hotel, and in the Cavalry post, both are wonderful. The suites are roomy...

I have been coming to the Big Bend area since the late 70's and have stayed in many different hotels and clearly the Lajitas Golf Resort and Spa stands head and shoulders above the rest. We choose to stay here a couple of times per year because of the quality of the rooms and its location. The restaurant has had some management issues in the past, but the food has always been excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend the resort to anyone looking for an upscale place to stay in the Big Bend area.

Room Tip: Be on the look out for specials, "$99/night", "stay two nights, third one free"...

I don't play golf but I followed my husband and a friend around in my own cart and really wished I had of had a great camera. This place is all about the views. If that's not your thing there's little else here. Very quiet and spread out. I'm offended by the huge graphic nude painting in the Thirsty Goat saloon but this is really a man's place so I doubt anyone would agree with me. I've been to Lajitas several times and will definitely go back again. It's a good place to connect with Yourself and the wonder of nature. Cell phone service was very patchy so that was a plus too! Went on a raft trip down the Rio Grande with Jenny from Far Flung and had a blast. A little long but once again the views are spectacular. This area is very remote so its pretty impressive that this place is even here.

Big Bend area was a totally new kind of trip for us Brooklyn folk. We needed to stretch our eyeballs, and the topography delivers.The national park was awesome, and EMPTY the week after Labor Day (our travel time). We had the Lajitas resort almost to ourselves as well, and were delighted with all aspects of our time there. The staff is outstanding, professional and friendly to boot! We totally enjoyed the Thirsty Goat Saloon, Cendrillion dining room ( pheasant on the menu) and the divine pool (temp was 104 one day - so that was a necessary treat). Summer and Emerson welcomed us at front desk, kept us apprised of daily events, Glenda organized three wonderful excursions, and the dining & bar staff (Bo, Rudy, Dean, Renee, Desiree etc. were entertaining as well as professional. Could not have asked for a better time. Sorry I do not have photos to share just yet...

Western style resort for all comers--campers, renters and those wanting the comfort of a spacious room. Very clean, friendly and attentive service, beautiful views of the south Texas hills and Mexico across the Rio Grande. First class, knock-your-socks-off golf course. Two dining options but limited menu choices. Food was more than satisfactory tho. If it weren't so far away we'd be return guests.
