About Alsation RV Resort

We have stayed at Alsation RV Resort in Castroville, Texas four times so far. Alsation is a Good Sam 10-10-10 Resort.

Our Review…

  • 9 Luxury Casitas These are designed for Class A’s only because of the way they are designed (pull-in).  Backing a 5th wheel simply won’t work because of the design.  They are only a small building with a shower/commode, and closet inside.  No room for bed, futon or sofa bed.  No sleeping inside them.  However, each casita has their own covered patio and kitchen that looks out to the golf course.  Each comes with a grill.  They are nice but again, no room for your guests to stay over or sleep in.
  • 60 Over-sized RV sites – all sites are paved and level, ample spaced and staggered so when parked, you’re really not looking in your neighbor’s windows.  Each site is long with a nice half circle patio. Each patio has a small bistro table and two chairs.  We fit nicely with a 42′ fifth wheel and dually.
  • 30 and 50 amp hookups No problems
  • Giant Infinity Pool – Never swam in it, so we can’t give a review because it was too cold to swim most times.  However, it was appealing aesthetically.  It should be a heated pool considering this is a resort.
  • Large hot tub  – We used it however, sometimes its not hot enough. They need a ‘no children under the age of…’ sign and enforce it. Hot tubs are meant for relaxation and adult conversation; not splashing and horse play.
  • Large Event Pavilion – It was absolutely beautiful however, management never uncovered the chairs and tables for guest to sit out on nice warm days.  They were often pushed into a corner always covered unless there was a private event going on during the weekends.
  • 18 Hole Golf Course – never used it; no review. This seems to be the owners focus.
  • Gym – Poorly located; small gym room consisting of a treadmill, eliptical and universal weight machine.  There were very vague instructions for any of the machines; small pictures on the machine how to even use the intimidating sized universal weight machine. An average lady needed a stool to stand on to change the gear.  Because the gym room is located inside the office building, it was only available for use 9:00 am – 6:00 pm. during business hours.   We wanted to use it early mornings and after dinner but couldn’t.  It was locked when the employees went home for the day. 
  • On-site Laundry Facilities – The laundry is not centrally located. It’s on the other end of the resort grounds where the restrooms/bathhouse are located. Its small. Only one person can be in the laundry room at a time.
  • Restrooms – The RV Resort restrooms were clean except on weekends. I didn’t feel safe unless I locked the door to the outside because they were located in same small building as the laundry on the other end of the park. There were no shower doors to lock, so when the door to the restrooms was opened, there was a bee-line view into the shower area.  There were no benches or chairs to sit on in the ladies room.
  • Parking – Plenty! Guest parking lot close to one side of the Resort near the pavilion and restaurant.
  • Activities – There really are none other than a holiday party.  They need to hire an Activities Director.
  • Staff – The staff, Chasity (former office employee), Janet and Mike are exceptional! They are friendly and helpful. There are others who also work the office and maintenance who we’ve found to be friendly and professional as well.
  • Free WiFi –  We rely solely on our own private WiFi so we are unable to give an assessment of their free WiFi.
  • Hiking Trail – The resort has a nice path type hiking trail on the far side of the golf course that you can walk to from the resort. Its a great place to walk the dogs or get some exercise but be wary of rattlesnakes!
