This is our fourth visit to the Ranch and always in October over our fall break. We have 6 and 7 year old daughters who love coming here. The lazy river and the indoor/ourdoor pools provide a lot of fun play time for our girls and there are lots of places for adults to relax while the kids are playing. We enjoy the gym, hottubs, sauna and steam rooms as well. The staff in Camp Armadillo are great. We didn't put our kids in the camps sessions but we did do the daily arts and crafts although it wasn't as diverse this year as it has been in past years.The girls loved the new slushy machines in the camp. The camp did have some fun events for the kids like a sand castle building contest and diving for pearls. We also took advantage of the fire pits in the evenings and the free s'more kits.
There are both advantages and disadvantages to going during the down season. We loved the personal attention from the staff and the ease of getting a chair by the pool or lazy river. The restaurant was only open a couple of days we were there. Although we eat most of our meals in the condo it is nice to have the option to grab lunch by the pool or a margarita at happy hour.
The staff overall is excellent. Chris in the Rec Department was fantastic. Frequently checking in on us and our girls. He was also our 'personal trainer' while we were there as we were the only ones who showed up to the fitness sessions. We appreciated both Chris and CJ making the effort to adjust our workouts to change things up and challenge us. We went home feeling like we had maintained our fitness while on vacation.
Travis at the front desk was extremely helpful and accomodating. We knew him from previous years and he recognized us upon check in. He definitely improved our stay by helping us upgrade as well as helping with other things.
The resort grounds and accomodations are beautiful. Wonderful nature/jogging path. We love having a full kitchen and laundry and enjoying having meals on the balcony. We used the grill frequently which the staff will light for you upon request. Housekeeping did a nice job every day and we were always fully supplied with everything we needed.
The location is great. We always go to Sea World (cheaper tickets are on Craig's list) and the zoo is beautiful and only 20 minutes away. There are many things to see downtown including all the historical sites, the riverwalk and the Mexican market. Austin is an easy drive as are the caves and hill country.
This is a favorite vacation spot of ours an we will continue to go back.
