No, you may not be in an updated room...no problem...or have a lakeside view...again no problem...but to see my 97 yr. old mom and the smiles on her face as she enjoyed the deer all during the day...we will definitely go back one day! We spent a week there and loved it! You can walk down to the lake, feed...

The front desk clerk was really nice. But-This place was dirty and dated. The unit was a 1980's mirrored nightmare with cheap furniture. The black jacuzzi (mirrored of course) was visibly dirty including hand prints on the mirrors. The Internet was inconsistent and slow. And the deer were all over the place. I know some people find that charming but...

We stayed at The Shores while visiting my daughter who lives in Austin. After reading some of the reviews, we were very worried about the conditions. The unit we stayed in had newer carpet and updated bathrooms. It only has one real closet in the 2nd bedroom. The deer in the area provided entertainment for the children in our group....

Lagos Vista is a quiet secluded location tucked away in the Texas hills. It was such a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The scenery was spectacular. I'm already planning my return trip. The office staff was welcoming and friendly.

We picked this resort because of the nearness to a place we had to do some business and decided to make a vacation out of it. The only nice parts in our unit were the bathrooms. The counters were gouged and stained. The carpets dirty and the furniture was beyond disgusting. I dropped a piece of popcorn on the couch...

Lago Vista is a really nice place to stay. It was our first time there. The staff was very friendly and so helpful. We got great advice about local restaurants and maps and advice for our day trips. It was quiet and relaxing.

Reasons not to stay here: 1. Stained carpets that look like a murder scene. 2. 30 year old counter tops filled with years of abuse and deep gashes. 3. Ugly brown hollow core doors with holes punched in them. 4. Toilet paper and tissue that feel like sandpaper. 5. Spotty internet at best, available less than 50% of the time....

We stayed there in the middle of winter. The staff was accommodating and we were in one of the remodeled units so it was comfortable and acceptable. For two couples or a family with kids the fact that at least most units have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths plus a full kitchen might be a big plus. Other than that,...

We stayed here for a week as part of a vacation club. Check in was quick and the receptionist very helpful with any questions. The units were clean and nice enough, but were very dated. Everything worked without any problems. The décor of the unit was typical Southwestern, with much of the furniture and furnishings handcrafted heavy wood. It was...
