Editor’s Review of Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch

As soon as you enter the lobby of the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch, you know you're in Texas. In fact, the setting is so luxuriant, with leather sofas, stained wood ceilings and native flagstone floors, you half expect to walk in and shake the hand of Lyndon B. Johnson. In his place is a gracious staff not only ready to ensure your family's vacation is memorable, but to implement unique changes so when you return, there's always something new to try. It helps that the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch is continually expanding, adding new pools and lodging choices. Still, it remains more intimate than the much larger Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa located across the street.

The Ranch is a Hyatt Residence Club property -- timeshares that
... more are rented out to the public when the suites become available. They cater solely to leisure travelers, so the moms and dads you meet will be wearing swimsuits, not business suits. The property is really the best of both worlds -- there's a free shuttle across the street to the larger Hyatt, so you can experience the golfing, spa and waterpark, but the Ranch has its own lazy river and water slides with far less people. This is not a place where you need to wake up early in the morning to snag your chaise lounge chair. Nestled amidst the woods of the Texas Hill Country, you feel embraced by nature and you might very well spot raccoons and deer. Add spacious two-bedroom suites with full kitchens and you begin to understand the allure. less

The cornerstone of the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch is the spacious studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom suites. The Texas ranch d├ęcor extends to these condos, with leather sofas, stained oak woodwork and Texas-themed prints, like wildflowers and cattle hanging from the walls. Enter the suite and you immediately see the full kitchen, complete with cupboards full of pots and pans, a full size refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender and coffee maker. All rooms comes with free Wi-Fi access.

Beyond the kitchen, you'll find a dining room table that seats six and a living room with a queen sofa bed, two leather chairs and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player. A library of DVD's is available at the front desk, along with a library of books. Walk past the living room and you'll reach the long balcony, which overlooks a live oak forest.

Since these suites are primarily occupied by tenants who spend a week or more on the property, a washing machine and dryer connect the living room to the first of the bedrooms. The Master Bedroom features a king bed and adjoining bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and the luxury of a double vanity. Across the hallway is a second bedroom, with two twin beds and a second bathroom.

When you take into account the pullout sofa, the two-bedroom suite accommodates a family of six. If you still need more room, consider the three-bedroom option, which simply adds another bedroom and bathroom, and can house up to eight people. Pack n' Plays and air mattresses are also available for no extra fee.
