Nice resort but some of their charges are obnoxious and tacky.
Reviewed 6 july, 2022
While it's a pretty resort , some of what they charge you for is absurd and for the life of me, do not understand why on one hand, they try to be a first class resort and charge accordingly yet stick you for $3.00 if you want ice in your cocktail, or $5.00 to shake a martini. It's pathetic that they don't just add these charges to the price of a drink. Instead one sees all these "upcharges" on one's bill which leads to annoying conversations with waitstaff and managers. For the $500 or so a night they charge ( before resort fees) , they want $8.00 for a bowl of peanuts at the bar and $1.00 for olives in one's drink. Someone at this organization has no common sense. Will not return.

Omni Barton Creek has done a great job with the new additions. This is my second visit and I am really glad to experience the newer rooms. Very nice, peaceful, and comfortable. The staff, service, and food is very good. Well done Omni!!
Great Resort, Disappointing Golf!

The resort is beautiful, rooms are nice and everywhere is clean and well kept. The pools are a very nice retreat and the restaurants offer very good food options. We didn’t have anything that wasn’t well prepared and very good at any of the restaurants. The service is very good and efficient without being overwhelming. Now to the unfortunate side. If you plan on playing golf pay very close attention. I’m an avid golfer and played both the Crenshaw and Fazio Foothills courses. The Crenshaw course is in very nice shape and I would highly recommend it. This is the report course which allows access every day. The greens are fast and challenging but this was a great course and well worth the money. On the flip side, the private course the Fazio Foothills course while a great layout is a complete mess! They charge $300 for a course that should be about $125 on its best day. I’ve seen municipal courses in better shape. Torn up patches everywhere, tee boxes, in the fairway, run ups to the greens. It’s embarrassing that they would charge the money for this course. It’s a very bad look on not only the resort but also the members of the club that they are okay with those conditions. If you are thinking about a trip here then definitely do it but avoid the Foothills course at all costs unless you don’t mind paying $300 to play on a dirt patch.

We’re wrapping up a week here (spring break) and we’re here with another family to enjoy Austin and environs. We wanted a resort this time instead of a downtown hotel. This Omni has totally lived up to our expectations. Our room was very nice and in terrific condition with a beautiful view of the golf course and hills. Simply beautiful. I do wish we could open the windows as the night air is great here but we made good use of the many fire pits so we figured out a way in the evenings. Free parking was helpful and slightly far away as the property is sprawling but, come on everything’s big in Texas! From the free water bottles at the front desk, to the good coffee in the rooms to the excellent and clean pools we had fun. The driving range was also really terrific and challenging. If you golf but don’t feel like playing a round the driving range is a good activity. The common spaces are nearly pristine and I don’t understand what prior reviewers are complaining about as the lobbies and rooms are totally up-to-date. When I had a minor service call for a slow sink drain it was fixed immediately. As for the distance from downtown, it is an easy drive and we’ve found we are getting in our car for everything around Austin anyway so NBD. This has been one of the nicest resort stays we’ve had anywhere and we’ve stayed in a lot of well-regarded hotels. I look forward to returning to the area again sometime!
Better than expected

We stayed here 3 nights for part of our Texas road trip and really enjoyed the property. I’ve seen some reviews that mention the property needing an update, but we saw no evidence of that during our stay. My kids really enjoyed the pool here and the one dinner we had at the hotel was pretty good. The hotel is a little further from downtown than some may like, but we found it very convenient for our exploration of the city. It was nice to come back here after a day of walking around downtown or waiting in line at Franklin’s!
