  • It was a well organized night of fun with something for all ages to enjoy. Look forward to going again. 
  • Whenever family comes down we all go to the River Ranch to see the Rodeo. It never fails to be a big hit with young and old. The rodeo isn't the same thing every week. If you saw it once, you should s...  read more »
  • Adults had a great time and the kids had a great time. With 2 children under 10 and 1 child over 14 we all had a great time. We stayed in the owner section with full hookups on the canal. We enjoyed f...  read more »
  • Room and property was clean and tidy. Went on a crowded weekend so they ran out of golf carts but the walk to places on property isn't bad. Rodeo was entertaining. Apparently all the recent rain caused some of the activities to be closed, or maybe they just opened late that day. Over all it was a nice overnight getaway, would have liked to have been able to do more things in the morning though. Again probably wet conditions caused activities to be closed.
  • First, let me state that I base my vacations on reviews and I do not easily throw out negative comments without serious warrant. Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo is one of the few deserving "resorts" of a terrible review and I highly recommend that you reconsider visiting this location for family vacation. My stay at Westgate River Ranch was for a family reunion of over 50 individuals. We rented a conference room to socialize during our stay, my largest complaint is that they charged us daily for the tap water that they provided in a jug and fined us for every outside drink we unintentionally brought into the room. Further evidence of their insensitivity was when they made me stop drinking a water bottle due water being considered an 'outside drink' right after watching me use my inhaler while struggling to breath. In the middle of Florida summer heat no one should deprive an individual of water or charge for something that is a necessity of life especially at a location claiming a "Resort" title. The employees are disrespectful, rude and act as if their customers are an inconvenience. If you were wanting to play tennis, basketball, or any of their other ' fun' activities - be warned you will pay for each and unreasonably so. FYI to business professionals- there is little to no cell service. Its unfortunate that 4 vacation days were wasted at a place as unamiable as Westgate. If I had a second chance this would be the last place that I would spend time with my family and I highly recommend that you reconsider your vacation here.
  • Long drive from Orlando, bus broke down but not their fault. Food from the grill was ok. Beans were great. People were very friendly. Rodeo was awesome. Definitely go on saturday if you are in doubt, it's on rain or shine.
  • My kids and family loved everything about the resort except the customer service. We camped out here in a tent. They had just added the bathroom and shower facilities for campers. Everything was clean. The rodeo was awesome. My problem with the westgate ranch was that they designed their white fencing enclosure for their animals to look good, but not functional. A cow busted the fence while eating from turning it's head and the cowboys had to follow him back into the pen. The watusi cow just ran around all the people sleeping in their tents at 1am before he decided to go back inside. My kids were 6 and 4. They were very scared over the incident. I tried to get a room just for the night, again at 1am. They had 3 rooms available, at 1 am, but would not give me a break on the price, even under the circumstances. Otherwise I loved everything about the place, just won't sleep in a tent again until they make the changes to make things safe. I will stay there again but maybe in a room, which isn't as much fun, but I have to weigh fun and safety.
  • What a great place for the family, their service is great and their facility truly make me feel relax. I enjoy leaving all the stress from work and spend the weekends with the family here. I have stayed at their hotel rooms and their glamping tents, both have been AWESOME experiences. Highly enjoy with my family.
