Our stay was mid-week and therefore many of the advertised activities were unavailable. The only restaurant was the Smokehouse which is just average. The grounds are very pretty. I would highly recommend bringing your own food and drinks. There are grills everywhere. The golf course was not up to par. It could certainly use an overhaul. Most of the activities...

Went to the ranch for the hay-ride, cookout and the rodeo. While being loaded for the hay-ride, a very rude boat owner was upset because the trailers were blocking the boat ramp. Dean, the trail boss, calmed the guy down to prevent a scene. Well done Dean.

I would never stay in the motel rooms again! Dirty and disgusting. Upon arrival the room smelled gross. Shower had someone else's hair in it. The cleaning lady was making the beds when I ran back to the room to get my something I forgot. I witnessed her coughing all over the pillows and made zero attempt to cover her...

We had reservations for an Airboat ride for 10:00 a.m. We drove about an hour to get there and we were told to arrive 15 minutes early. When we were 10 minutes away, we received a phone call asking if we would mind switching to the 11:00 tour. We really didn't want to, but agreed to do reluctantly, as they...

I'll start with the positives... beautiful grounds, fun airboat ride & very clean rooms! We enjoyed riding the bikes around however getting the bikes was a fiasco &'took forever! Now let's talk customer service...they need some serious help absolutely no personalities, not helpful & given the impression they didn't want to be there. They definitely were not prepared for Spring...

I have always wanted to get my husband (who is from the city) to go camping to no avail. This was the best compromise we could both think of. It has the feel of camping but all of the luxuries of being at a resort. We went with another couple and their children. We had a great time! We roasted...

On the positive side, the ranch is a good concept and there is plenty to do for both young and old. The most positive things were the rodeo and horse back riding. On the negative side, the deluxe room we had (larger more costly room) did not have any type of lounge chair to sit it. The room had a...

There is sooo much Westgate River Ranch Resort offers!!!! We came tent camping with our Girl Scout troop last week and absolutely fell in love with this place. Rodeo, adventure park (zip lining, mini golf, mechanical bull, rock wall climbing), horse and pony rides, fishing, petting zoo, pool, archery and skeet shooting, swamp buggy and airboat rides on Kissimmee River,...

The staff was very eager to help in everyway. I took the family for a birthday weekend. When I spoke to the front desk they helped with the rodeo and got me in touch with catering to have a surprise cake in the room waiting. The rodeo is a must see along with the petting zoo. Took the family trap...
