... As we were finishing our lunch, a couple of us were observing a huge flying bug near the wall. Then suddenly we were distracted and delighted by the sighting of a green anole lizard that crawled out of the dark for a few seconds only to disappear even more quickly back into his secret hiding space. On our way back to the hotel, we discovered we had access to a second swimming pool which sits just above the ...

... in the hot, dry summers that concrete slabs and the foundations of homes can be broken. How do I know that piece of Texas info? I'll come back to that shortly.

In the meantime here are the some other highlights: the Alamo! Honestly, it was well into the 90’s and by the time we parked the car and walked the few blocks to the Alamo, we were wilting a bit. Paula kept the anticipation high and splurged by getting us the phones for the self-guided ...

... irritated and enflamed by the horseriding that he couldn't get it comfortable on the thin mattress.
Back to the barn at 9am to lead our horses in for grooming, tack up and ride down to the arena. To be honest, neither Mase nor I were particularly keen on riding that morning - we'd have been just as happy sitting, watching the kids than bouncing up and down on horseback. However, the kids were in their element, particularly Matt and Jo. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mayan Dude Ranch Bandera

    Great Spring Break

    from

    Going to the Mayan is not like going to a 5-star resort. It is more like visiting a friend's ranch, a friend that happens to have a large family that loves to entertain, cook and relax.

    The Best Family Vacation Ever!

    from

    This is the very best family vacation ever!!!! We spent 4 days at the Mayan and loved every single minute. There is never a dull minute, and the staff is exceptional! Horse rides are safe and wonderful - the food is fabulous - the activities are varied and fun. One of the best parts is meeting new friends from all over - the Mayan Ranch has something for everyone! This was the most relaxing trip we've ever taken. Our children (ages 9 and 10) said Mayan was "better than Disneyworld!"

    Wow!

    from

    We were lucky enough to hold our neighborhood reunion there, people came from all over the world. WOW! Friendliest,most relaxing and wonderful food. I can whole heartedly recommend to anyone, young and old!

    Fabulous

    from

    My wife and I have been to the Mayan on a number of occasions, including a couple with our son and grandchildren. Unfortunately we are now a bit too old to participate.

    The accommodation was great, the food better (and I love my food), and the family and staff as friendly and helpful as anyone could wish. None of us had ever ridden a horse, but we all loved it. If any of the family reads this-please give big Sundown (horse) an apple for me

    Best of the best !

    from

    The Mayan has been a favorite for years the 12 children of the Hick's now have their children working to keep every guest excited about their vacation. The guest's children are kept busy and leave some time for the adults to watch the sunsets from the balcony of the bar. Just minutes from the historic city of Bandera. During the summer the rodeos in the community are great.

    Make sure you make your reservations well in advance, some reservations are booked 5 years in advance for their annual visits.

    This hotel is Awesome

    from

    This was the best place i have ever been to. The food, the activites, the country-western dances (with a little bit of modern music thrown in at the end), and the help. Every single person on the staff was attentive to your every needs. Oh, and the cabins, they are perfect! A rustic feel, but complete with a tv, ac, and a fridge. Two horseback rides per person a day, which is perfect. And the cooking, the best food i have ever tasted, especially the steak. There is a newsletter left at your door every morning, so you always know what is going on right away. there is a pool, tennis courts, basketball court, volleyball net, dinosour tracks, and entertainers every night. I especially liked the shows, not all of them were exactly professional singers, but it made me laugh. and the shows on tuesdays, everybody knows how to act. i could just go on and on with this, but i think you get the picture. this place is perfect.

    So much fun

    from

    Wonderful vacation. We stayed for three days and had a lovely time. The cabins are decorated in a western and rustic style, they're very spacious and extremely clean. The people there make you feel at home, they're very friendly and always in a great mood. There's so much to do so no time to get bored. Lots of activities for kids as well. Very big Texas meals with music and entertainment. We can't wait to go back!!!

    Great resort for a family

    from

    Friendly family owned ranch with beautiful scenery, hay rides, horseback rides, swimming pool, etc etc, and excellent food! Loved our accomodations and the balcony that went with it. Wild life of deer, roadrunners, etc. And the restaurant in Bandera, Billy Gene's was excellent and friendly.
