“Best Wedding Weekend Ever!!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

This past July we had our daughter's wedding at Barton Creek Resort and Spa. It was spectacular. We hosted over 200 guests from all over the United States as well as New Zealand, Australia and Sweden. They all had the most amazing time at the resort. Everything was perfect from the Bridal Luncheon on Friday afternoon to the Farewall Brunch on Sunday morning. The staff at Barton Creek was great to work with and the food was absolutely delicious. Our guests could not believe the spectacular food stations they provided for our wedding reception as well as a beautiful seafood display on ice during the cocktail reception. Kristen Crawford was especially helpful and so pleasant to work with in coordinating every detail of our wedding weekend. Everyone had so much fun playing golf, swimming and enjoying all this resort had to offer during our wedding weekend. I would recommend this 100%. They made all our visions of a dream wedding for our daughter come true. To view picture of this event go to http://www.jenniferlindbergweddngs.com/Lindsayand Matt/

We feel honored to be a part of the memories that were created that weekend. We hope that your daughter and new son-in-law will return every year for their anniversary.
Kristin is a very talented wedding planner and we are very fortunate to have her on the team here. Our best to the newlyweds!

We have been going to Barton Creek since the mid 1980's and always had high marks for the resort.The last 3 years we have stayed at Barton Creek with 3-4 couples on pleasure and always enjoyed our stay until last week. The hotel rooms and have always been fabulous and the golf courses superb-no different this time. We are now thinking differently about where we will go next year for other reasons.

This visit we had issues with the service, billing and food

Spa- 1.Hostess was rude and inconsiderate. Not very courteous
Massage specialist was incompetent and did not know had to treat one guest in our party. Mid way through the session she quit the session for fear of injury.

Food- Several in our group ordered a bone-in ribeye at $42 which came out very tough. Many of us did not finish our meal. The scallop potatoes were under-cooked. For a $600 meal we were all very disappointed. On a positive note their breakfast buffet is fabulous.

Billing- We bought packages and were over-billed on several occasions. When your on vacation you don't like to watch every charge. Fortunately the staff worked with us to get corrected. Be careful when you get a package deal...

We are now considering Horsebay or San Antonio as alternatives for next year.. Hope Barton Creek corrects the issues.

We sincerely appreciate the constructive feedback noted by these loyal past guests regarding their spa, dining and billing issues last week. We will most certainly identify and correct the items noted as it is critical to our overall service delivery. We also thank our guests for their tremendous level of loyalty for the past two decades and hope they will view this as an isolated experience. Thank you.

A beautiful resort both inside and outside. Excellent service. Food was delicious in both the 1812 Grill and in the dining room. I spent all day in a seminar and hope to return soon!

Our girl trip was that seldom chance to visit and relax. The spa really added to our leisure and the food was incredible! We're already talking about another trip! And we've recommended it to our friends.

We came for a few days from Austin and it was great. The pool was great and the servers were very prompt. The food was excellent and the restaurants on-site had great food. The breakfast buffet in the morning had a good selection.

I think Hyatt Lost Pines is a little more kid/family friendly, but the place is a lot closer to the city and overall it was a great stay. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Great weekday rates.

It has been a terrific summer season thus far with many families enjoying the resort. Many parents enjoying golf and spa as the children enjoy our Summer Camps. Great weekday rates available all summer long.

I recently stayed at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa for a business conference. The hotel is what I would expect for a luxury resort. The staff was friendly, the rooms well equipped, and the activities/dining plentiful. However, everything is going to cost you, so bring the wallet. The hotel is older, but it is charming in that way. Also, the halls are filled with old Texas memorabilia that is quite interesting to view. The setting of the hotel is grand, just in the hills, East of the line between the Texas gulf plains and the Texas hill country. The hotel may have been built in stages, so you have to wind your way around to get to different things such as the spa, dining, shops, and rooms. However, the maps they have around are adequate to let you know where you are and where you are going.
PROS:
Beds good
Rooms large
Decor is great
Staff is friendly
Food at both Hill Country Dining and 8212 is great, especially 8212
Grounds/golf course is beautiful

CONS:
Bottled water: $3-$5 in gift shop and $8.50 in the room (bring some with you)
Housekeeping could have done more of a deep cleaning (especially the bath tub)
Electrical outlets in the rooms are SCARCE (but this is expected for a older resort)

Overall:
Would I stay here again? Yes
Did I get a good nights sleep? Yes
Did I enjoy my stay? Yes

Room Tip: You want a room that is floors 3-5 (better view)
