Enjoyed an outstanding dinner with colleges this week. A state historical site dating back hundreds of years. Friendly hospitality! Try the steak or grilled fish for dinner. At dark, visit the fire pit. Hope you get to visit with the ranch owner John Poindexter.

For us this was not just a lodge. It is a historic masterpiece. You really can't enjoy this place until you truly understand what John Poindexter has accomplished. His vision of restoring a ranch and fort back to what it was like in the 1800s has made it a Texas star. We enjoyed the isolation and solitude. If you are...

An absolutely superb place to get away from it all. Food of the highest quality. Service impeccable. Every room was charming. The ambience of the old fort cannot be replicated elsewhere. A must stay place in the middle of nowhere. We will come back again. We stayed in December 2013 - January 2014 but just now got around to the...

The experience here has been top notch from start to finish. Elena in the front office has been so gracious with assisting with reservations, and we were allowed to check in early and join for lunch on our first day which was an unexpected treat. The location is breathtaking and you instantly feel like a welcome guest in a very...

There are very few places left in the world, sans Aman Resorts, that equal the attention to detail at Cibolo Creek. John Poindexter has made an oasis. Very few will know or appreciate the solice, excruciating beauty, and warmth the resort effortlessly presents.

It's the "place to be" but not up to what one would expect of such a pricey place. The pool and pool chairs (mine was broken)were old. the rail leading into the pool very wobbly. Expect to eat there as Marfa is 33 miles away. The food was good but breakfast buffet was a little slow in getting things back...

Fabulous.. No other word for this hidden gem. Architectural splendor and friendly luxury set amongst the glory of a private 30,000 acre ranch in Southwest Texas. Comfortable rooms, excellent food, bartender Zack rocks those deserved gin and tonics after a hardy Hummer tour of the high country, pictographs, waterfall and Cretaceous oyster beds! Already planning our next stay!

Thank You for an awesome review... I will be sure that Mr. Zack receives his "reward" for having his name mentioned here. We as a total team here at Cibolo are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Brian Severn General Manager

We have lived in West Texas for over 35 years and have never stayed here until Memorial Day weekend. It was well worth the wait, the service and accommodations we top notch.
