Historic ranch amid 30,000 acres of plateaus, gorges, red mesas and rocky peaks in southwest Texas near Big Bend National Park. The enclave consists of several castle-like adobe forts and Spanish-style dwellings housing the guest quarters. The main compound (“El Cibolo”) features an outdoor pool and hacienda trimmed by an inviting veranda. Handstitched quilts, old photos, Saltillo tile floors and adobe corner fireplaces accent the 21 accommodations (no phones or TVs), the Master Suite augmented by a separate living room and plush bath. Activities include hikes and horseback rides, 4WD ranch tours, skeet shooting, star parties and visits to Big Bend. Restaurant serves traditional Mexican dishes; also fitness center and spa.

From the Hideaway Report

December 2012 Hideaway Report

Cibolo Creek Ranch lies 33 miles south of Marfa, in the Big Bend of West Texas, and was founded in 1857 by cattle baron Milton Faver both to safeguard his trade between Mexico and Fort Stockton and to protect his 20,000-plus longhorn cattle from raids by Comanche and Apache Indians. Three main springs, Cíbolo, Ciénega and Morita, provide the ranch with a constant supply of good water, and Faver constructed an adobe fort at each. ...

We stayed at Cibolo Creek last May and found it to be a wonderful west Texas escape. The scenery alone is worth a trip back. Unlike the previous commenter, all of the guests at the ranch while we were staying there were from Texas and had been to Marfa several times before. They seemed to be looking for a one-stop weekend getaway, which is exactly what Cibolo Creek provides. There is plenty to do on the ranch (we particularly enjoyed the hiking and the star gazing). I do agree that the staff could use additional training and we overheard they were going through some staffing changes, so I would expect changes to be imminent.

Recently visited Cibolo Creek and were extremely disappointed and perplexed. Absolutely beautiful place, but I have never experienced a staff less trained in hospitality. Could hear people talking through the wall in the next room. Had an excellent steak one night, but all other food was very average. Had a waffle that was so overcooked that it required cutting with a knife and then crumbled. Some guests seemed to like it more, but, unscientifically, that seemed to coincide with people who had never seen west Texas and were enthralled with the "ranch" experience. Over the years, they have skillfully created an image of being a hideaway for the rich and famous, but I would expect anyone accustomed to Harper-style properties to be very intolerant of an ambivalent attitude. We went from Cibolo to a Rosewood property, and I could not possibly overemphasize the difference in staff training and attitude. We were literally anxious to get away. Very perplexing.
