The Island at Lake Travis looks impressive on line. Many of the photos were taken when the lake was about 70' higher. The Island isn't an island anymore - more of a peninsula. The entrance side bridge goes over land not water because the lake is so low. There are no boat ramps available at the resort due to the low water levels. You can find boat ramps at parks in Lago Vista. But - then the hard to get to docks - the resort and its associated dockage company want to charge $50 per day for docks that are sitting there unused as well as fairly treacherous to get to. It's ridiculous.

We also were disappointed that the pool closest to our condo was closed all wkend because they shocked it on Friday. Poor plan for pool maintenance.

Once we got out on the lake, it was great and we had fun. The condo was well maintained and updated. I think some of the condos are in pretty poor or dated condition so make sure to look at recent photos. Also make sure if you want a water view you are on the Lake side facing Pace Bend park. Otherwise, you will be looking at what used to be water but is now dirt.

They have one restaurant that was open on wkend only and BYOB because waiting on license. Food was pretty good. Service was pretty good. Nothing spectacular. Was nice to sit outside on the terrace and have dinner and brunch.

Supposedly there is a spa but never saw it.

Very few people there so if you want a quiet get away, it's a good option.

If I could give them a 0 I would. This condo is in HORRIBLE conditions!!!! It's old, out-dated, disgusting, and just plain out TRASH!!!! They should be embarrassed to rent this condo out to anyone. The furniture is old, the ceiling is disgusting, they have a shelf as a table with linens on it, the restroom curtains are yellow and HORRID! There was what looked like a car window cleaner sponge left inside the bathtub! *vomit* the closet doors have been removed and replaced with curtains???? seriously??? The amount of things that are wrong with this place are infinite... There's not enough space on this page to write down all the bad thins wrong with this condo! What a shame that you take money from people and precious time from their vacation by renting this piece of crap out! Wow... That's alla I can say. Don't ever stay in this condo room 3105! Horrible horrible horrible!!!! You're better off sleeping on the benches by the lake!

Beautiful place. It's not an island any more but still has a lake view and easy access. The amenities are great. We rented a condo directly from the owner, it had 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom with easy access to one of 3 pools. Beautiful landscape. The sunset is priceless.

My family stayed at The Island on Lake Travis and had a great time. It is somewhat isolated but close enough to town and other places where you do not have to drive a long distance. The grounds were well kept and the condo was very clean and somewhat up to date. (the beds in unit 1214 were showing there wear). Parking was under the condos and we felt very safe. The only thing is that the island is no longer an island at this time because the lake is down 50-60 ft. The pool areas were well kept and not very crowded. We would recommend this place for a family stay on Lake Travis.
