Golf course is outstanding. Resort was clean comfortable and friendly. Plenty if activities to go eith the beautiful views of the Big Bend area. Terlingua is a nearby town with a few restaurants but otherwise you are hours away from other civilization.

We actually stayed at the Maverick Ranch RV resort nearby that they’re associated with. The campground is as good as you’ll find in the desert-southwest. From Resort you can bill off expenses to the campground account. We took advantage of that to do some Cowboy Action Shooting on their range. Had a terrific time. John was a great guy to introduce new shooters to this. . One problem we had is flat we made the reservations for the campground through the Resort and it looked like we were getting double-billed. Also, the rates changed from the time we made the reservation and the time we went there. We got charged the higher rate. That just seemed a bit wrong

The South Lost the Civil War and Robert E. Lee was fighting for Slavery

The rooms are adequate, but do not justify $500/weekend night. The golf course was well maintained, but I didn’t understand the need to place the Robert E. Lee statue in the middle of the putting green. I understand that Mr. Kelcy Warren, Lajitas owner, is promoting this installation as Art and Education, but no where does the plaque mention that General Lee for defending Slavery. And did it need to be placed in a prominent location? It comes across as Dallas wouldn’t keep it, but I am a billionaire so I can do what I want to do. Mr. Warren spent 2 million dollars on this effort. If his intentions are genuine, I would think he would invest in the black communities. Additionally, if Mr. Warren is genuinely interested in educating, edit the plaque to say “THE SADDEST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. MAY WE ALWAYS REMEMBER LEST WE FORGET. MAY WE NEVER FORGET LEST WE REPEAT OUR MISTAKES of defending Slavery! This was a horrendous mistake and left blood on our Nation’s hands. The South Lost, let it go!” The new Confederate monument on the opposite side of the street seemed to be a slap in the face.

Worse customer service

In our travel to all 7 continents, this resort has the worse customer service. The location is isolated and not many places for food etc.. Twice the dinner and breakfast places ran out of food. No milk or Orange juice in the morning etc.When I complained to the manager, the answer was" oh but we had Almond milk". Reason was supplier did not deliver. Right outside the resort is a grocery store. They had the milk and orange juice. The restaurant could have picked it up just like we did. Even if the restaurant are not owned by the resort, its a obligation of the resort to keep their guests satisfied.. If the supplier did not deliver, the resort has several planes transporting guests. They could have used the planes to get immediate supplies. Instead of telling the guests that they ran out of food, the employees would tell you that the place was booked solid and no tables were available. When you looked in side the hotel at peak or non peak hours it was almost empty. Later on we realized the real reason was no supplies. Once we did finally get the reservation and sat to eat. The next table(s) was occupied by ROWDY FOLKS and extremely loud and noisy. It was so loud that we could not hear person sitting next to us. There was a Danish couple who even walked off!!.I expected the manager to request the folks to cut down the noise or move them to the bar or outside. That of course did not happen. My wife wanted a safety pin and called the front desk. She was told they dont have the pin. When my wife pointed out that normally big hotels have a sewing kit which has a safety pin. The front desk clerk then agreed that they do indeed have a sewing kit, but it will be billed to the room!!! Check out time is 11 am and we called at 10:45 am for porters to come up to bring our bags down. After some time we were called back and told that no porters were available as they had all gone to pick up new arriving passengers.Does someone realize that their are guests trying to check out and all porters are sent to the airport. Not a single porter was available for existing guests. The walk way from rooms to restaurants has a bamboo roof which leaks and the ground below which is uneven gets wet and slippery. Some people even fell, Very poor customer service.. 0 ).

Can't wait to go back

I took a group of 10 guys out to Lajitas for my bachelor party and it was even better than expected. My fiancee and I went out to Big Bend/Terlingua last year and I loved how quiet, remote, and serene that part of Texas is so I decided to do my bachelor party at Lajitas because I didn't want a big blow-out debaucherous bachelor party and I've heard the golf course is a bucket list king of place. Lajitas did not disappoint. The service was great at the hotel, restaurant, cafe, and golf course; the new lakeside cottages had ample room for all of us to spread out without being cramped; and all of the resort amenities were excellent. On top of that, pricing on food, drink, etc. was not ridiculous 'resort pricing' that you'd see at other resorts. The golf course was in great shape and is by far the nicest I've played on. I'm a casual golfer with a mid-high handicap so it was a challenge for me but the views alone made it worth playing - regardless of how many balls I lost. The 5-stand sporting clays was also a lot of fun - just challenging enough for us experienced shooters but still had some clays the beginner shooters hit. Food and coffee at the Boardwalk Bakery as great, as was dinner at the Candelilla Cafe - definitely try the Octotillo bites and quail legs.
