Not Just a Golf Resort! So Much More to Enjoy!
This was a Big Bend country winter trip. Have visited and had great lunches at the Lajitas Golf Resort in years past. This time stayed four nights in a standard room. Large room and nicely furnished with great amenities. Very clean, well maintained hotel. Love the vintage feel throughout the resort. The restaurant serves delicious food; we had our supper there one evening. Beautiful surrounding. We walked one morning on their nature trail that wound around golf course alongside the Rio Grande River. Turned out to be a true birder’s paradise! Best kept secret! So many other activities also offered by resort!!!

Great Place to Stay
We love this place - and we don’t even golf. The buildings have a wonderful historic feel and the scenery is amazing. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The food at the restaurant was fabulous. We sat out on the patio to eat so we could enjoy the views. It is a bit of a drive to get into Big Bend National Park, but completely worth it. There are lots of hiking trails near and at the Resort too. We will definitely stay here again.

After Christmas stay till New Years
This remote destination is quaintly tucked between Big Bend National Park and the State Park, closer to state park. The resort is spread over several areas, some rooms are attached to the front desk area, some are across the street, still all very close and within walking distance. Room was very clean, lots of hot water, beds fairly comfortable, staff was very delightful, well informed and was around 24 hours. We only took advantage of the restaurant, Candelilla Cafe on our first night. A bit expensive, food was good quality, buffet and menu options available. The bakery was not near as good. Selection was slim to none and quality was eeh. Stayed in the Calvary Post #105. Can't wait to go back!

Off the beaten trail but well worth the side trip!
We travel in our 40’ motor home and we’re looking for a spot either in or near Big Bend National Park. Found it on the internet and booked a goldmine! The Maverick Ranch has large, well maintained RV sights adjacent to the resort. The golf course is challenging with beautiful sightseeing as well. The activities available are horseback riding, zip lining, off roading in ATV’s, hiking, gun and skeet shooting complete with a old west town for action shooting, a spa, old west saloon, restaurant and a swimming pool at the Ranch. Everyone is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, they bend over backwards to make you comfortable and feel welcomed. We will definitely return. That said, it is not cheap. Being in the middle of no where and close the Big Bend, everything has to be trucked in and that costs. But it shouldn’t stop you from staying!

It's a long drive through the Big Bend -- and Hot Water is Scarce
We stayed in a 2d floor hotel room (as opposed to a condo) over New Years -- to appreciate the resort you have to recognize that it is a long ways, well over 100 miles, from the nearest Hilton or a Marriot -- the location, the mountain desert, imposes its own conditions, and the Lajitas copes with those conditions in an excellent manner -- the rooms are exceptionally clean, the food is top rate, the bar is well stocked, the people enjoy their jobs. If traveling through the Big Bend, recognize this Ain't New York City, and the Lajitas Resort has to be considered the absolute best accommodations available. There are some B&Bs in Terlingua that may be nice, but the Lajitas is a full service resort, outstanding staff, and with an interesting list of activities in addition to golf.
