Quick recharge on the way home! A review of Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa
On our way home to El Paso from our daughter's wedding in Burton, TX and with no reservations, having seen the beautiful entry statement from Highway 71 into the Austin area, we wheeled into the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort on a whim. It was a great decision!
We are now in day two of a four-day (stay three nights and get a fourth free package) recharge of our batteries and between the fine accomodations, gracious staff, beautiful grounds and diverse activities my wife, two children (10 and 15) and I are about back to normal. The pool area can hold your attention all day, with its winding "river ride", slide, waterfalls, beach and splash/squirt garden...while Old Buck's serves up beverages and food at your station, and bike rides take you on winding trails through the woods. The golf course is challenging and beautifully laid out. Horseback riding was a thrill for our 10-year old boy!
Work is obviously still in progress as they finish the last touches on this retreat in the famous "Lost Pines" of central Texas. However, the staff makes up for any glitches with their great attitude and genuine smiles. Give it a few months and Hyatt will have this place hitting on all cylinders. For a Texas native, the keen attention to the history of the state (with a focus on its artists, musicians and writers) in the lobby and room decor is fascinating and presented with museum-like quality.
We'll be back!
