Close to Big Bend National Park
The horse ride to see the sunset was great! The golf course was breathtaking. The hotel was too expensive for what they offered. Poor internet and their maintenance was poorly. The restaurant was good and the staff there was very friendly.

Top notch golf course with very average hotel
The golf course is something to behold. I would highly recommend playing a round or even just taking a cart out to drive the course. Beautiful! The hotel accommodations, service in general (there were some excellent standouts), and food are very average, though. Way overpriced for what you get, I’m sorry to say.

Beautiful Desert Oasis
Really beautiful golf resort located in an area of the country I have never visited before. I did not realize how stunning the mountains and desert could be. The resort itself is a calm place to relax and enjoy time with the family. The golf course is amazing. Even if you don't golf, I really suggest renting a golf cart so you can drive the course. It is relatively inexpensive and well worth your time.

Nice location, uneven facilities and staff
Perfectly nestled between Big Bend National and State Parks, with historic facilities, I was ready to have my boots blown off. They failed to impress with my first phone call to the "activities office" to arrange for a rafting trip. Response to my question as to if the Rio Grande river (which abuts the property) was at a high or low level this year? "I don't know." Couldn't arrange for a river trip, either. Just gave me the number of a couple of local outfitters. "Which one of them are operating right now?" Response: "I don't know." Checked me and my two kids into a room for four people only to find a single king bed. "What happened to my reservation for three kids?" I asked to the reception. Answer: "I don't know." Finally go them to roll a sad little flimsy cot into my room for an extra $20 a night. But here's the best one of many, many puzzling interactions with cheerful yet inept staff: "Where's the pool?" Response: "I don't know. Did you ask at reception?" This place need a lot of improvement and training.

Confederate Robert E. Lee will greet you
Lajitas is a nice place to stay in far west Texas if you don't mind supporting an establishment that displays a Confederate monument. We stayed at Lajitas for two nights and were walking around the albeit beautiful grounds after dinner when I noticed an oddly familiar statue. Being from Dallas, I knew this was the bronze statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee which was removed from a city park and purchased at auction for $1.4 million dollars.
I was immediately sick to my stomach to be staying here and indirectly supporting a management group and owner who would brazenly place this object of oppression on their property (yes, it's their private property I understand that). You can argue that it's a part of history or a beautiful piece of artwork all you want. I want to warn anyone who feels otherwise that a statue that glorifies the Confederate general who fought to keep slavery intact is on display here.
As far as our actual stay at Lajitas, it was fine. The food was meh, rooms were okay, grounds were well kept. No issues, but we'll never be back.
