“Best Place Ever!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Escondida. Dawn and Pam were both wonderful. Rooms were exceptionally clean. Meals were well prepared. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. And the spa!!!! We had massages done by Vicki and Rose and we highly recommend them both. This is a beautiful hill country hideaway that you can absolutely relax in. The staff are helpful, but not intrusive. Really, really enjoyed ourselves and cannot wait to get to go back. Thanks from "The Andrews and The Cortez's" to everyone at Escondida that made our stay so wonderful.

Escondida resort offers an opportunity to relax, unplug and enjoy the one you love.
No internet, Facebook, or emails!!!! :)

Escondida's charm, breath taking views and accommodating staff have already convinced my wife and I to book a return visit for our anniversary.

The general manager (Dawn) and assistant manager (Pam) made sure we had everything we needed from the moment we checked in. Not only did they serve appetizers and dinner both Friday & Saturday nights, we woke up to breakfast and coffee Saturday and Sunday morning.

World Class Spa experience! Don’t let the country fool you.... Escondida has experienced and amazing spa staff (Rose, Vicki and Michelle) who are just as good as or better than any Austin massage therapist. We took advantage of a couple’s spa package and enjoyed the hot tub under the stars!

Room Tip: Try to book room #9. Great view out your window.

I wanted to get away for a long overdue spa weekend with the girls for my birthday. I couldn't have picked a better place than escondia. It was so beautiful, peaceful, fun, relaxing and to top it off we even made new friends!
The staff, Dawn and Pam made us feel right at home.
Thank you..We will be back soon!

I just got home from a very relaxing girls get-away at Escondida Resort. There were four of us and only one had been to Escondida Resort before. Where to start!! The rooms were spacious and the bathroom and sink area were big enough to accommodate all four of us very easily. The food (breakfast and dinner are included) was fantastic!! Dawn and Pam went above and beyond trying to make sure everyone was happy. The four of us each had a different spa treatment and we all were very happy with them. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub also. Wine out on the patio at night was a perfect way to end each day. I would love to bring my husband back for a couples get-away next time!

Certainly is remote. Sort of like being at a luxurious camp. The rooms were very comfortable, with large baths. The food was prepared in the kitchen adjacent to the dining room and was very good. The two ladies who ran the resort were fun to talk to and very accommodating. We had the couples massage and it ranked right up there with some of the best ones I have had. Very peaceful and restful. Drinks out on the patio in the evening were BYOB. They don't have lunch there, but there was a place just a short drive down the road. Hard to get a phone signal, but that just added to the peacefulness.

Spent 3 days in an excellent home away from home with good food, good friends. Will make Escondida a favorite destination for a yearly visit. Surroundings were peaceful and welcoming. Pam and Dawn make everyone feel at home especially at breakfast and dinner. Wonderful meals and presentation every time. Rooms were cleaner than many hotels; wonderful beds and linens. Secluded acreage; deer grazing nearby; wine on the patio in the evenings. Don't have enough words to describe. simply WONDERFUL!!!

Two best friends and I spent several days last week at Escondida and can't wait to go back. From the moment we walked in we felt like the most special people on earth. Dawn cooked such amazing meals and catered to our every need, Pam was so wonderful and fun and also catered to our every need. The grounds are gorgeous. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and up by the pool, watching the deer and the other wildlife frolic and play. There is no cell service which was wonderful!! The only thing phones were used for was for cameras. We did not take advantage of the spa services, but will probably do that on our next trip. Escondida is a magical place. As soon as you step through the first arch into the courtyard, you feel yourself relax and forget about the outside world. We will be back! Maybe we'll take our husbands next time!
