Lajitas: The essence of Texas Lodging
For many years, Lajitas Resort & Spa has been the hotel of choice for Bruce Foods
Corporation while attending the Terlingua International Chili Championship. From the moment we arrive until the time we leave, the resort staff makes our stay as enjoyable and stress free as anyone could possibly ask.
They are helpful enough to send someone to pick us up from the airport when we arrive and take us to the luxurious resort. The property is beautifully designed and decorated and could make any person feel at home away from home. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. The resort accommodates your culinary needs with a contemporary Tex-Mex Café, Candelilla Café, serving breakfast, lunch, and diner every day. They also offer amenities such as a full service spa and an eighteen hole golf course.
We at Bruce Foods would like to thank Steven Dye, Director of Operations and his entire staff for making our stay wonderful. We look forward to visiting again next year!
Bring your own Recreational Drugs
The Ultimate Hideout in Lajitas operates on the psychological premise that after you've traveled for two solid days to get there, you will do anything to convince yourself you're having a great time.
I am not suggesting that you can't have a great time in the Ultimate Hideout, but I am suggesting that you don't have to travel quite this far to do so.
If you just seek that sense of desolate isolation, try having a flat tire on the Highway 170 halfway between Lajitas and Presidio.
They do have golf, a spa and some restaurants.
Unique Quality: Great sunsets & sunrises
Great view of the stars at night
Easy access to Big Bend National Park
Directions: about 20 clicks northwest of Pancho Villa's hide out

$15 cheeseburgers and manufactured charm
My husband and I found our experience at Lajitas somewhat bizarre. First of all, there are ZERO signs once you arrive in Lajitas that state where the resort is. Every building is basically owned by the resort but none say that is where you are - we had to go to the Ocotillo restaurant to ask where the resort was! Once he told us it was the huge complex (only thing in town) that we had passed, we followed the cheesy clip-art signs indicating where check-in was. We were then told to follow the reception girl in her golf cart to our room. Room was large and nice but the furnishings are a little chinzy for $300/night and their goal of being a "luxury resort". We were told there were two dining options, both owned by the resort (of course, this town wouldn't exist without the resort), one a fine dining (the Ocotillo) and one casual. Thank goodness we chose the casual dining restaurant b/c the cheeseburger option cost $15.50!! What a rip-off, once you are at the resort you're at the mercy of whatever they want to charge. Service was horrendous and the food mediocre. The boardwalk is cheesy and the feel is of a cowboy Disney Land.....totally manufactured and trying much to hard to be something it's not - an authentic Western town. What it truly is is a ghost town that has been essentially purchased by an investor and turned into Disney Land!
My overall impression is that the rooms are nice, though overpriced, but the "resort" amenities simply aren't up to snuff. Lajitas Resort is trying very hard to be a 5-star resort but falls pitifully short. Stay in Marathon at the Gage if you want a really authentic, comfortable stay, or in Terlingua or at the Chisos Lodge. Skip this overassuming spot.....
Not up to standard
Given the website, I thought this was a magnificent place. Upon arriving however, I was immediately disappointed. There's just something not quite right about the atmosphere and service. While they are trying to do elegant, they fall short. First of all, the room was small, smelled overly of cheap air freshener, and was in poor repair. The curtain rod fell down, the towel rack was loose, and the hook on the back of the bathroom door fell off. They have no hot tub nor is the pool heated so forget winter use. They have an expensive swiss coffee maker in the lobby that the staff don't know how to use. They charged an $18.00 for resort fees both days but then cancelled the one activity we planned to do at the last minute with a somewhat lame excuse. They failed to send me their resort activity schedule despite the fact that I requested this 3 times by phone and once by email months before my stay. Despite the cold winter weather, they did not light one fire the whole time we where there. There are some good points however. The location is outstanding, the state park is amazing. The service at the fine dining restaurant was very good but it is expensive (about $60.00/head). The mattress was very comfortable as were the robes. But would I stay here again? Not unless they drop their prices by half. The service and accomodation just were not worth the price tag.
The hotel staff was very helpful and this is a beautiful area. The prices for the rooms are very high.The food was overpriced and the service was poor.
I left feeling ripped off.
