I hesitate to write a review of this wonderful place only because I would prefer to keep it a secret! We have been visiting New Braunfels for years and it is by far the best place we have found to stay. The condo was sparkling clean and was stocked with everything we could possibly have needed, right down to even having a corkscrew. Linens were of good quality, with the exception of one pillow on a single bed. The other pillows were fine.
TV's and stereo worked great, as did all the other appliances we used (coffee maker, microwave, oven, refrigerator, washer and dryer). A/C worked exceptionally well. The resort was well landscaped with plenty of thick grass for kids to enjoy as a play area.
The pool, although small, was adequate and the hot tub was well-heated and working (not always the case at other facilities, in my experience). They even provide beach towels for the pool area.
Lobby staff were extremely friendly & helpful, both at check-in and check-out.
The location absolutely cannot be beaten, just a short walk to Gruene and the Guadalupe River, or a very short drive into the center of New Braunfels.
The only downside was the attempted sales pitch by the concierge staff. That was a bit of a put off since we were here to enjoy our vacation, not listen to salespeople. Just tell them (firmly) if you are not interested in timeshare ownership. This one minor hassle was definitely not enough to discourage us from returning to Worldmark. We would love to stay here again!

We loved staying at the WorldMark. The 2-bedroom, 2.5 bath was great for our needs and Courtney hooked us up with a unit that backed up next to a field that was good for watching deer in the morning. We took full advantage of the kitchen; it came pretty well equipped with pots, pans, dishes, measuring spoons, etc.

and it only takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to Gruene if you don't mind being aware of cars or walking up hill. The property is nicely cared for, but the linens need some attention. You don't get many towels but can pick some up from the front desk, but beware of engaging the staff too much because they'll take the opportunity to try and sell you on a time share.

We received a pushy call from the Concierge desk about wanting to bring by coupons and discuss the benefits of owning a timeshare there on site. We refused at least four times; they are very persistent. We made a house rule of not answering the phone after that. Other than the sales push, we loved the WorldMark and would stay there again.

My boys and our family had a great time staying at the WorldMark Resort in New Braunfels. The houses are very spacious with lots of light. We had 4 adults and 3 children in our party. We spent practically every afternoon in the pool. It is very close to Gruene, the river and New Braunfels itself. We had a 3 bedroom two bath condo. It became known as the wood house; décor is texas theme with a log cabin feel on the inside. The grounds are kept very nice and there is a lot of grassy hills for the kids to play on. The housekeeping was very attentive to our needs as well as the front desk. The staff always made themselves available and were very knowledgeable about things to do . We had a great time staying at the WorldMark.

WorldMark New Braunfels is by far the best WorldMark property I've ever stayed at. Staff was incredibly helpful and welcoming. Our accommodation, the two bedroom unit with spacious rooms and tons of light, was clean and decorated true to central Texas. This location provided easy access to Gruene (down the street) and I-35 (few miles off). We spent most of our time in Austin (45 minutes) while also mixing up some sight seeing in San Antonio (25 minutes) so this location was perfect. Only gripe is pool is pretty small and often crowded. Fitness room (18+ only) is a bonus though as well as clubhouse with pool table.

Room Tip: Ask for a units furthest from the clubhouse / pool area (much quieter).

We were in a two-bedroom condo. It was more than spacious and had every possible amenity. The downside was the check-in process, which was painful. We arrived early and were given a unit but the air conditioner was not working so we went back to the check-in office to wait for the next available unit. The check in time was supposed to be 4:00 p.m., which came and went and we continued to sit there for too long a time. There was another family which also waited an exceedingly long time. They definitely need more staff to clean the units for busy check-in days like the weekend. After we finally got into our unit, the stay could not have been more pleasant. It's a beautiful property and we hope to go back next year. The best part of the whole stay was the close proximity to the little town of Gruene. While the stay started on a sour note, it does not deter us from wanting to go back or from highly recommending it to friends.

We had a three-bedroom condo that we shared with another couple. The place was huge!! We could have held a dance in the walk-in closet in the master bedroom. The staff was so very helpful and friendly. They were anxious to provide anything we needed, additional laundry soad, exchange of towels, photocopies, etc.
Interestingly we spent the next week in a condo in Branson (The French Quarter). That resort had NO internet available in the rooms (only by the pool??), charged for towel exchange, only provided one of each dishwasher soap, laundry soap, etc. for a week stay), and a tiny bedroom with a nightstand and lamp on only one side of the bed.
I would recommend this WorldMark as the location is great, the units are very family friendly, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and the staff is great!! Next time in Branson we will look for a WorldMark there!!
