“No Internet”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I stayed for two nights, the 1st in a standard hotel room, and the 2nd in a condo. I booked there because of a wedding, and the wedding party negotiated rates.

Overall, the place was nice, in a small resort type of manner. I will be honest; I did not use any of the facility except as a place to spend the night. I assume it has a lot to answer.

My major issue was the condo did not have internet access. I needed to do some work. When I complained at the front desk, they admitted that the condo did not have WiFi access. They suggested that I come sit in the reception area to get online access.

The front desk personnel were very nice. However, I find it ridiculous in today's world where a resort would not provide internet access. I needed it for business, but we also wanted to research local restaurants and shopping. It seems like such an easy thing to do. I will not go back unless it is provided.

Also, I would be interested in:
Queen beds, instead of Full
A restaurant or bar onsite.

I arrived to the property after the sun had gone down, but by next morning I could better see all the various things this facility has to offer. This location is ideal for families with children. They have so many things to do on the grounds. The lay-out was very nice and attractive. The accomidations were comfortable, but my room in particular was dated. More importantly the A/C unit wasn't working properly. Fortunately the outside temperatures were favorable. The room was clean and the staff was nice. I would stay there again.

We were referred to this property because of a wedding we attended. Was pleasantly surprised by the facilities and because we booked so far in advance, the price was far less than any traditional hotel we could have reserved. Knowing that there was no restaurant on site was OK as we planned accordingly (there is a refrigerator in each room and a grocery store and dining options just down the road). Since we were in town for a specific event, we did not take advantage of all this property had to offer, but would highly recommend it from at least a "hotel" perspective. The housekeeping staff was extremely friendly and accommodating to us as well.

Room Tip: Request a handicap-accessible room if available upon check-in for more square footage.

Although I am not 100% certain how to categorize T Bar M resort, I know how to categorize my opinion of it: It was fantastic! It is not exactly a ranch nor a resort really; it's a huge rambling expanse of land which holds guest accomodation as well as residential homes (and some of them were very plush looking houses indeed, not sure if they were rentals or if people own these houses & apartments, it was all a little mysterious. There were no clear boundaries between 'vacation' accomodation and 'residential' so we weren't sure what the setup was.) So some of the facilities are not for visitors. We were stunned by how big it is, we took a walk around the grounds and counted about 6 (more?) swimming pools, countless tennis courts, football pitches, rope swings, a putting green, swings & slides, wood climbing frames....they provide free bicycles for guests to pedal around the grounds too, how cool is that? It seemed to be a very out-doorsy place, wonderful for families. There are individual cablins as well as lodge-style rooms. It is not a dude ranch so not the kind of place to come for horse-riding etc. It is also not some sort of luxury serenity spa. It seems to be a popular place for conferences, weekend getaways, family trips, groups of kids on sports events, that sort of thing. We thought it was wonderful and the price was very reasonable.

We travelled as a couple for 2 nights and visited ew Braunfels and Gruene nearby. The grounds were full of deer and other furry friends scampering around. It is peaceful and relaxing. They serve a hot breakfast every day included in the price; we are lazy and slept in too late to sample it but apparently the food is excellent. Our room was great! Comfy beds, a nice big bath, a sizeable desk for any work that needs to be done, a fridge, large flat screen TV - what more could you ask for? Would love to return in the summer and actually swim in the pool. Thank you for a delightful stay!! We love Texas!!

Our organization holds meetings at T Bar M. The food is wonderful, the staff great to work with. It's a peaceful and pretty place to meet. Conference room and accommodations work well for groups of various sizes. Fun to have the gym for after hours team building activities.

We attended a weekend class here and when I checked on rooms online it said to call. Tried for 2 days to get a person to talk to and left messages each time. Finally talked to someone who told me they were "sold out", had to ask if they took a waiting list, gave my name, number and email and never heard back. I went online the day before the event and saw there were rooms available! I called, left messages, no response, finally booked online. Upon arrival asked if I could get the special rate they offered the group - NO, I didn't reserve soon enough (well I sure tried). Housekeeping failed to clean our room (and we paid more than the other 100 people attending), when we discovered and told front desk they said crew already gone, we asked for clean towels and coffee, upon return to room later the towels were dumped in sink (so bottom one wet) 2 coffee packs but no cups were left. On departure day asked for check out at 12 rather than 11-NO, they are a hotel and have to get ready for new guests. I sat in lobby until 5pm (cold, cloudy, windy, classrooms all occupied) and I overheard desk attendents say nobody was checking in-so they could have let me stay in the room while they cleaned ones that the 100 other attendees checked out of: Lacks customer service training! There was a computer in lobby I tried to use but desk clerks didn't know how to "get access". Guess they are so busy they don't need to make customers happy.

The kitchen and dining area staff were all friendly and effecient and the food was good. Staff at gym, pool, grounds keepers also were friendly.

Room Tip: Could hear people talking/walking in halls, baby crying. Possibly condo's and Sunday Houses woul...

This is a great family vacation spot! We've stayed here on 3 different occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. Beautiful grounds, nice pool, great food at the outdoor grill. So much to do -- putting green, bikes, lawn games, tennis, rec center. Rates are reasonable and a full hot breakfast is included. They usually serve eggs, bacon or sausage, sometimes biscuits and gravy, sometimes waffles. It's usually all good, but I'm not a big fan of the Kolaches. Overall, a great value and a wonderful place to make fun family memories!
