How to Get There
We absolutely loved are spring break vacation to Lajitas Golf Resort. We have never been in this part of Texas, and were amazed of the beauty all around. The Resort is located in the perfect spot to take advantage of both Big Bend Ranch State Park, and Big Bend National Park. We drove in and spent the day hiking in the State Park, and then checked in early evening. Check-in was quick and easy. Grabbed our keys and had a short walk to the condo we rented. Condo was fantastic. All the luxury and beauty of a large scale resort, but on a small property. We loved not having to walk a mile from parking to get to the room! Since it was Spring Break they had a dinner buffet, and it was delicious suprise. The next day my husband and son participated in the Wild West shoot-out and it was the highlight for my son (9yrs). The man in charge of this was great! My daughter and I went on the 2 hour morning trail ride and the sunset evening ride. This was the highlight of her trip! The horses are well taken care of, and the wrangler, T.T.,, was great! We also played a round at the golf course. One word - AMAZING! If you are a golfer, you must play this course!! Every hole is breaktaking!! Even if you don't play from the black tees, at least drive your cart to them to see the shot from the black tees!! We also experienced Big Bend National Park one day, and used Far Flung for a full day river trip. Every experience was memorable, and there is still so much more to see and do! We will definitely stay at Lajitas when we get back to the area. Oh, the condo was great, kitchen was great. We cooked most meals in the kitchen and it was well supplied.
It's hard to express how special our experience at Lajitas Resort in Terlingua, Texas was or how strongly we recommend it. This was my second visit. Our party of 5 adults fit comfortably in the Clay Henry suite, with two bedrooms, a shared living space, and a porch overlooking the board walk. We tried just about every organized activity, from sporting clays to old-style revolver and rifle target shooting, and horseback trail riding - where else can you do these? - to ziplining, spa treatments, paddle boarding, and golf at the spectacularly scenic and well-groomed Black Jack's Crossing. On our last day we spent the day in Big Bend with our guide from Big Bend Hiking and Boating Company (fantastic!) and finished back at the resort with Dinner Under the Stars. It was a wonderful 3 night stay and we all want to go back soon.
Lajitas Golf Resort is amazing!!! We stayed at the Maverick RV Park with our travel trailer for 5 nights and loved it. The views around the RV Park were beautiful. Great club house at the RV Park with nice laundry facilities and nice pool. Just a short walk up to the main Lajitas Resort where we found a bakery, little boutique, bar, and restaurant with a GORGEOUS outside sitting area. Lajitas is placed just a short drive from everything. We loved it and highly recommend this RV park. We will be back!!
Not worth even a fraction of the money, but you have no other choice if you want to be close to Big Bend! The best comparison I can think of is the Lajitas General Store that sells 6 packs of Busch beer for $10,99 and gas (only 87 octane) for $3.89 a gallon! This resort and many places in this region of Texas are the sorts of places that "sell gasoline cans for $50" (not literally, but hopefully you get the point) because they know if someone runs out of gas and are desperate, they will pay anything. Everything, except the golf course, at this resort is merely decent. For example, when you walk into the registration area, you will see 5 front desk employees behind the counter. But only one will make eye contact with you after you stood there for an awkward 30 seconds. And ask, "Can I help you with something?" I wonder how the other 4 felt when you ask, "Where is the ice machine?" Your room won't get serviced until after 3 pm. Bed is decent. The pool water is freezing (atleast in March). But they do offer an abundance of clean pool towels. The "rain shower" head is so high that the water pressure is non-existent. Oh, and yeah, if your toilet overflows (like ours did), expect that nobody is going to come clean it up until atleast 7:30 am when housekeeping staff arrives. Yeah, it's a hotel that should be charging $80-120 a night for a room. But, instead charges $3-800 a night for what exactly I don't know nor can figure out. Except if it is because they know YOU DON"T HAVE ANOTHER CHOICE!! You kind of feel a bit dirty after paying your bill and checking out of this place. And I suspect they do too. The Lajitas General store gas station is only 20 miles away from Terlingua which also has a gas station. The Terlingua gas station charges $1.89 a gallon for 87 unleaded gas. While 20 miles down the road, the Lajitas gas station charges $3.89 a gallon for 87 unleaded gas. The same Terlingua gas station charges $6.99 for a 6 pack of tall boy Busch beer. While the Lajitas General store charges $10.99 for the same beer! I don't know how anyone doesn't feel a bit dirty after paying or charging Lajitas, Texas prices. A $2 snickers bar is fine, especially if you are buying it at a Four Seasons or comparable resort. But, it becomes, perhaps, a bit dirty when a white trash mountain resort charges $5 for the same snickers bar. The snickers bar is merely a snickers bar. The problem is the trash that decided to charge people $5 for the Snickers bar because the customers think they have no other choice.
We won't be going back. And it is a shame because that golf course is one of the top 5 courses in the world in my opinion! It was worth every penny of the $125 green/cart fee per person that we paid. Golf course staff was great. No bev cart or snack/drink stations open on the course. But some of the most amazing views and golf I have ever played! If you go, tolerate the local mountain white trash workers, business owners, and locals. Be prepared to spend alot of money because you know they are all entitled to it. But, even if you don't golf, pay $50, get on a golf cart, and ride the 18 holes! INCREDIBLE!! Then go back to your decent, overpriced hotel room, restaurant, etc.. and take in the views. Because, "views" are all you get at Big Bend and the surrounding areas. And the locals and business owners are going to try and take every penny you have so that you can enjoy those "views". If you have to stay in a hotel, this is the only place to go unless you are willing to drive 2+ hours from Alpine to Big Bend. If so, Gage hotel is decent as well. Sorry, that is the truth! My suggestion would be to get into Big Bend early in the morning (because you have to pay their extremely high entrance fee to get to Lajitas unless you drive through Alpine which is over an hour longer), see Big Bend (Santa Elena Canyon- bring bating suits, Chisos mountain- hike one of the trails and see "the window", etc.. Then, drive to Lajitas resort, check in and stay for 1 night. Play golf or ride the course in the morning, an get the heck out of there preferably by driving to Presidio if you are going west, or through Alpine if you are either going east or north. I think Lajiats Resort has a minimum length of stay during certain parts of the year because alot of people would do what I just suggested.
So, if you decide to go, prepare to get financially raped. Your hard earned money will help finance alot of the locals alcohol and drug habits. You will feel dirty when you leave. But the views at Lajitas golf course and at Big Bend make it worth a one time visit! Enjoy...
We just happened to be driving by and the Resort stood out so we stopped and got a room. We got to our room then went to the bar where we set outside for hours and enjoyed all the family’s playing corn ball and enjoying the large fire pit. The employees were wonderful and nice. The grounds are beautiful.
