“Balloons Over Horseshoe Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We stayed Easter weekend for Balloons Over Horseshoe Bay Resort. Not only were there many things to do at the Balloon festival (which was fabulous), the resort also had a lot of family activities planned for the Easter weekend. The rooms were great and the grounds were beautiful. The staff was very helpful and professional. There is always transportation available to take you anywhere you want to go in the resort area. Horseshoe Bay Resort is definitely one of my favorite places to stay.

We stayed 3 nights at the Horseshoe Bay Resort near Marble Falls and had a great experience. The property is a former Marriott with beautifully appointed rooms and gorgeous public areas. The resort has a beautiful pool area, amazing tennis and golf facilities and an astounding garden complex. Exotic birds, giant land tortoises and koi ponds teeming with turtles and fish. A walk along The Palm Path is a great way to unwind. the resort fee included an hour of free bike rental and a free drink at the Yacht Clun on Lake LBJ. We had a nice dinner at the Lantana Restaurant and our tour members all enjoyed the beautiful breakfast buffet. My favorite part was walking around the WhiteWater 18 hole golf putting course which was just spectacular. If you are a golfer, then this is the resort for you! I believe they have 72 holes of regular golf as well. We will be using this property again whenever we travel to the Hill Country. It is an easy and scenic drive from Fredericksburg, Austin, San Antonio and Waco. A perfect location geographically. Thank you to Amberlee and the nice front desk staff and bellman who all helped make our stay so enjoyable. Even though the property has recently gone through a sale and is now being managed by Horseshoe Bay, our experience was still right up there with what you would expect from any luxury resort.

Room Tip: The 7th floor rooms are the nicest and the ones overlooking the pool are especially nice too.

Dear Allisonbee,

Thank you for taking the time to review Horseshoe Bay Resort. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Although Horseshoe Bay Resort offers many unique features, we are especially proud of our luscious gardens with exotic animal and plant life. Our guests are always finding nice quiet spots along the trail to take photos, read or simply relax. We are glad to know you enjoyed them. I will be sure to pass on your compliments to Amberlee and the front desk staff as our associates are always looking for opportunities to go above and beyond for our guests.

We hope to welcome you back to the resort soon.

Marble Falls High School held their Prom at the Horseshoe Bay Resort this Spring and it was nothing short of perfection; I'm convinced there's no theme, party request, or event vision that Rachel (the Event Coordinator) cannot make happen! Rachel took the Prom Committee ideas and created a venue for the school that far surpassed any expectations. She made the most of our budget, quickly answered our many questions, and stayed through the event to ensure its success. The entire event staff at Horseshoe Bay was a pleasure to work with, their professionalism is unmatched. Even more importantly, they were FUN, going so far as to dress for the theme. The teenagers LOVED their experience at prom -- thank you, Rachel!!

We had the distinct pleasure of using the hotel facilities and two golf courses (Ram Rock and Apple Rock) during April 14 and April 15. John Kelly, Libby DeShazo and Stefanie Taylor, members of the staff at Horseshoe Bay Resort, were wonderful assets and helped us arrange a golf outing for twenty four golfers from Cordillera Ranch. The hotel staff and the service provided to us was commendable. The golf courses were in excellent condition and a challenge to our membership. We definitely will consider using the facilities at Horseshoe Bay Resort for future golf outings. A special thanks to John, Libby and Stefanie. You are to be commended for your service and interest in making this a memorable event for all of us. Bob Murphy

I have been to Horseshoe Bay a number of times. The golf courses are superb and the service at each one has always been very friendly and spot on. You are certainly made to feel that you are at the first rate resort Horseshoe Bay has advertised.
Upon arriving at The Marriott we were greeted by a very friendly staff. At checkin the staff again was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, that is where it stopped! Went to the bar and waited and waited (no they were not busy. No more than 10 people in the area). Finally just gave up and went up to the bar and ordered and waited on myself. Drinks were good but very expensive. Blended scotch $11.50??
Then again this morning we went to the restaurant. They had a nice buffet ($19.50). The made to order omelet was excellent-everything else was average at best. Don't ever remember paying over $50 for an average breakfast. Again, service was no where near what you would expect at a high end hotel.

All in all, I will go back here as staying at the resort is about the only way to play these great golf courses. Service at the courses - a10 for sure, greeters/bell hops/concierge -a10, the rest definitely needs some managerial training.

Room Tip: Eat elsewhere!!!

6 Executive's with our company stayed in two of the Water's Condos, in March on 2014. They really enjoyed Horseshoe Bay, the entire thing. The Condos, Golf, Restaurants, and the people. It was very simple to book the entire event with the Group Sales Manager, John. After everything was booked working with Amberlee was a breeze.

All of the Executive's raved on about how great Amberlee and other stuff at Horseshoe bay made their stay so wonderful.

Would highly recommend Horseshoe Bay, my Executive's will be back in 2015!

Room Tip: Water's Condos were great!

After 21 years of planning annual association events, I cannot say enough good things about Horseshoe Bay Resort! A beautiful and relaxing venue, tucked neatly in the Hill Country of Texas, was a retreat beyond belief! The staff was very attentive to our needs, prior to our visit, during our visit, and we left having made new friends. Lisa, Libby, Cesar, Jake, John and Eugene were all 5 stars! We could not have had executed the program without these individuals working to make it happen. A death in my family a couple of days prior to the event, at any other hotel, would have devasted the program. Libby was a kind superhero, and picked up the ball herself and made a touchdown for our team! As a culinarian, I am sensitive to the quality of food offered and was extremely impressed with the fare, not to mention the price associated! Dining at the Yacht Club is superb! Hands down, we'll book our annual conference at Horseshoe Bay again and again in the years to come. Thank you, Horseshoe Bay!
