My husband and I recently stayed for a birthday get-a-way. Upon checking in we were put in a room that was not what I reserved. The staff worked diligently to rectify the problem and accommodate us. Additionally they sent a bottle of wine to our room, which was a wonderful gesture. We enjoyed many different activities, some of which were new for us. Each staff member was great. They were patient, fun, encouraging and knowledgeable in their instructions. The challenge course was clearly our favorite! Josh and Cortnie were amazing!! Very safety oriented with great humor, people skills and a sense of providing a new experience with skill and care. Scott was also there with support and encouragement. My riding lesson with Norris was awesome! He was extremely helpful and an intuitive teacher. Super friendly and clearly an expert in his field.
Our dining experiences were also good. The menu was somewhat limited with choices our first night but everything was farm to table fresh, well presented, and plated hot. The second evening the menu was expanded and again the food very good. The dining room is expansive and includes a wonderful Texas style fireplace with very comfortable couches to snuggle in front of. There is an additional bar, separate from the dining room which was fun to have a cocktail in. Nice touch in the morning, they heat their coffee mugs:)!
Our massages at the spa were first rate. Often in resorts I have found the service over-priced for the quality of therapist, not true here. The outdoor pool and hot-tub overlook the Texas hill country and offer a beautiful view at sunset.
This is a place to experience new things and connect. It is Texas style, not an uppity resort. Come to have fun, relax, try something new and be treated like favored guests.
