Sunrise Beach, Texas

 Great Customer Service

Review by Juan on 9/11/22, 6:49 PM

George and his staff were helpful and friendly. We had an issue with the boat on our first outing half way during trip, but Goerge sent out one of his staff member to tow us back to the marina.....fully refunded us and apologized for the short rental . His staff was so helpful that we came back the next day and had a blast. Gotta LOVE the small local business owners! We will definitely schedule our next outing with George and crew.

 Never again

Review by Never again on 8/16/22, 10:44 AM

Rented a pontoon boat and tube for the family. Boat was old, dirty, torn seats, gauges didn't work, very slow, and broke down 2 hours into the rental. They did respond and bring another old, dirty, slow, boat. $9/gallon for gas is ridiculous. I have spent the same amount of money on a boat rental and gas, and received a much newer, faster boat, well maintained, boat. Never again on this lake!

 Terrible STAY AWAY

Review by Will on 8/14/22, 10:08 AM

We rented from Them because they were the only rental place left that had a jet ski available. They were more expensive than anyone else that we checked and when I got there the place smelled like and old ashtray. The jet ski they gave me was old, beat up, and very gutless. I went ahead and took it because I figured it would be fine as long as it works and besides that, I had already paid. (After I left with the jet ski I realized it was very slow and had no power) I had just gotten to our lake house with it when I got pulled over by the game warden because he could not see the registration numbers. Upon inspection he immediately shut me down because nothing was in order. No fire extinguisher, no registration, no emergency whistle. They did give me a full refund but I will absolutely never rent from them again. Their equipment is old, outdated and absolutely junk on top of being more expensive than other places that rent bran new stuff. STAY AWAY.

 Sunday pontoon Rental

Review by Karen on 8/1/22, 10:19 AM

We had a wonderful day renting a pontoon boat from LBJ Marina. The service was excellent. Scheduling was easy on the internet! Thank you! We will plan to rent again next year!

 Easy enough

Review by Kat on 7/25/22, 11:44 PM

Easy to reserve online. Staff is friendly and laid back. I rented the pontoon and jet ski combo. The pontoon’s steering was a bit tricky. The jet ski died on us about an hour into our 4 hour rental time. We called the marina and they brought us a much nicer jet ski. To make up for the inconvenience, they gave us an extra hour. The staff is courteous and helpful. Overall, it was a nice experience and we enjoyed our day on the water.

Review by RR on 7/23/22, 11:14 PM

July, 2022. The whole place, including the room we stayed in, was run down, neglected, dirty, and overgrown with weeds. Very overpriced. Not a family venue, a fishing camp at best. We reserved for 3 nights, but checked out after 2 nights because we were so uncomfortable there. Owner wouldn’t offer even a partial refund. If you want to eat at their restaurant, the steaks start at around $60. We rented a pontoon boat for 4 hours - very pricey, and hard to operate - steering wheel very hard to turn. Prepare to pay $9 per gallon for gas used in addition to boat rental fee.

 8 hour boat rental Lake LBJ

Review by MC on 7/11/22, 12:43 PM

First time renting with this marina. Renting was easy, getting there and picking up boat easy. Then, the experience went downhill form there. They didn't provide an anchor or dock lines as standard. When I asked for anchor, they gave me a very small poor anchor that only works in very calm waters - not LBJ as those familiar with the lake understand. when I asked for dock lines they d said use the line with the tube which for those who boat very often understand that doesn't work well at all. So, I think they just expect you to drive around the boat for 8 hours , so can pay the 9.00 per gallon fill up fee at end. My gas gauge was actually working , said only use da quarter of a tank of gas but charged me for 14 something gallons which I think was either purposely cheating me or inaccurate - wish I had stayed on dock to watch them finish filling it up so i could have verified which issues it was. As a side note they also don't let you go down the Llano past 2900 bridge which was an issue for us also as we were meeting friends on another boat a little downstream of that bridge. anyway overall experience was pretty poor though the folks were friendly - just all the logistical issues made it a very poor experience - wont ever rent from them again.

 Lovely 1/2 day on the lake!

Review by Family Fun on 7/4/22, 12:36 PM

This was our first time renting a boat on Lake LBJ and definitely will not be our last. Booking on line was so very easy and the selection of boats with their descriptions made it easy to pick the best one for our needs. We rented a towable when we got there and that was easy to do as well. The staff was courteous and made everything easy. I liked the availability of restrooms before we boarded the boat and the cold waters we could purchase before we boarded as well. We did have a problem when out on the water - my husbands fault - but with the number on the side of the boat we quickly called in and everything was back to normal in a matter of minutes. We called in a lunch order at Boater’s Bistro and took it back out on the water. The food was delicious and was ready when we arrived on the boat to pick up. Overall it was a fabulous day and we will have a repeat of the day very soon. The price for renting was fabulous and was worth the hour drive. Great job!

Review by AJ on 7/3/22, 10:52 AM

Staff was friendly. I rented a 150 hp tritoon be able to have decent power and speed. The boat I got had neither. Gas gauge didn’t work. Engine over heated about 6 1/2 hrs in to 8 hr rental. They brought a longer tritoon with a 135 hp motor, it ran better. Upon returning they said the 150hp motor tritoon was 2000 lbs heavier. Never again. FYI. Make sure you watch them fill it up. I was eventually charged $167.00 for gas.

 Great boat rental!

Review by Bret on 6/1/22, 11:08 AM

We rented a pontoon boat from Lake LBJ Resort, and it was a great experience! When we arrived early they said “no problem, you can take it now”. The check-in was super easy, and The boat was in great shape. We had a great time on the lake and check-in was easy too. We plan to use Lake LBJ Resort the next time we stay at the lake. Great experience!

Review by Stan on 3/27/22, 6:16 AM

Owner and staff were very helpful and friendly. The Fisherman's Room was clean but tiny. No fridge or microwave. Our second stay and will probably stay again.

 Great room

Review by T Shanks on 1/12/22, 8:55 AM

Great place to get away. We rented the romantic room with the hot tub. It was nice and quite right after Christmas. And dog friendly. Could not find a better place for $155 per night Thanks for the hospitality. We will return.

 DIrty!

Review by Boating on 11/16/21, 11:00 AM

Boat had multiple tears in the cushons......was very dirty....not the experience I wanted for taking out friends for a day on the lake! Will try another marina next time we want to go out! Staff was friendly but told us they "forgot" we were coming!

 Fun Fun Fun

Review by Rene on 10/4/21, 1:36 AM

Had so much fun . Friendly and all went smoothly. Would rent again and recommend to my friends .

 Trip to LBJ

Review by Rick on 9/17/21, 8:15 AM

We had a wonderful time. The 21foot pontoon with a 90 Honda wasn't the fastest on the lake but moved us across the lake at a very acceptable speed. It was stable and everything was ready when we arrived. I would do this again on my next trip to Texas. Only complaint was we did not have an anchor but as calm as the lake was it was not an issue.

 Would not rent again

Review by Dissapointed on 8/30/21, 10:14 AM

We rented a boat for a family outing in August. The pictures on the website definitely do not match what you get when you arrive. The boat had torn interior, stained carpet, gauges that didn't work and reverse worked only part of the time.. I rented the biggest/most powerful boat they had so we could let the kids wakeboard and the boat could not pull up a 140 pound skier. It was obvious the boat had been abused for a long time and was hardly water worthy

 Great Time

Review by Steve P. on 8/27/21, 5:12 AM

Had a great time, super friendly and helpful staff. Fun experience plan to be back.

 Our Family Lake Trip

Review by McNamara Family on 8/10/21, 9:58 AM

We had so much fun! The staff, especially Blaze and Leo, were awesome! Truly went out of their way to be helpful and informative. Check-in was easy. Everything was as advertised, and our family had so much fun making memories on the lake. We will definitely do this again!

Review by pontoon/jet ski combo on 8/7/21, 6:06 AM

We rented a pontoon/jet ski combo. We had originally set up a reservation with another marina, but they called 2 hours before reservation and stated boat was broke down. We were put in a bad position, but this marina had a reservation, that fit our needs. The guys helping us were very thorough in safety, driving of boat and jet ski. We were very satisfied with the whole experience!!!

 Rented 2 Pontoons

Review by MDR on 8/1/21, 8:50 AM

We were very happy with the boats and service. Having owned and rented pontoons several times, my expectations are moderated by an understanding of how much these boats are used and abused. The service was awesome. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The boats included a JC 221/75HP and the Oasis 23 with 150HP. We were not interested in towing but just wanted a few hours on the lake for our land-locked visitors. Everyone had a good time and both boats worked great. One big recommendation is to check the prop before you leave the dock. We did not and after being on the water a little bit I raised the motor and could see some chunks out of the prop on one of the boats. These were there before we started as we never hit anything but I had not checked them out. If I rented again, I'd raise the motor and take pictures of the prop.

 Stay away from the 50 horsepower pontoon

Review by Bob on 7/26/21, 4:55 PM

With my boat in the shop I had to rent a pontoon from this outfit at the last minute due to having company in town. It was very easy to check in and the staff was very nice but lets talk about the so called boat. If the state required an annual inspection like they do with cars this sucker would fail 100 out of 100 times. It's a joke that they even put this rust bucket on the water. The only boat that they even had available was a pontoon with a 50 horse power Honda. Let's put it this way. I'd put a fishing boat with a trolling motor up against this turtle. Speedometer didn't work so I couldn't tell you the top speed but I'm guessing top 6-7 MPH was all she could muster. It was actually comical. It didn't help that the carpet had horrible stains, seats had mildew, 1 of the 6 speakers worked and 2 of the speakers were hanging off the seat. Boat is rated 12 people maximum. We had 6 with a few coolers and the boat did a nose dive after every big wave. When I say nose dive the ENTIRE 1/3 of the boat was submerged when a big wave hit. I called and spoke with a manager the next business day to express my concern. He said it was a great boat that was only 1 year old. All I could do was laugh. That rust bucket had to be 15 years old.

 Family Day on Lake LBJ

Review by Vicki on 7/24/21, 8:29 PM

The staff was super friendly. We rented a pontoon here because other outfits did not have any available -- as well as the convenience of booking online. It was a little drive from where we were staying at Horseshoe Bay but it was kind of fun to see all the deer along the way and get off the main roads. Once we were out of the cove it was actually pretty quick to get back around to the open water. The kids had a blast tubing.

 Terrific hospitality

Review by Sharon on 7/19/21, 4:43 PM

We could not have had a better experience! We were greeted by Blaze and Radar, who helped us park (an RV) snd explained everything to us. My family if 8 had a fantastic time! Booking was easy snd when I sent an email explaining that we had an RV, I received a email response less that 16 hours later. If we come back to the area again, we will definitely book with Lake KBJ Marina!!

Review by Kim on 7/4/21, 7:45 AM

Rented the smallest pontoon (50) to do some relaxing cruising around the lake. The boat was in good condition and had everything I needed onboard. Friendly customer service and great price! Will rent here again.

 LBJ Resort and Marina

Review by John on 6/29/21, 9:34 AM

Rented a tritoon boat. It held all 15 of us. We pulled the grandkids and a few of the adults around the lake on a tube for about 4 hours. Plenty of room on the boat for all of us and two coolers and several small bags. The boat had an awning over the driver and about 6 passengers. Ladder made the exit from the water easy for all ages. We would have liked about 5 more mph but it was still fun. The service at the marina was very good.

 Terrible customer service. Bad boat

Review by A dad on 6/27/21, 11:08 AM

We got the Xplode thinking I would actually have some speed. We could not get over 15mph. I called them about 30minutes into the rental to ask about this, they said that they “throttle down” the boats because most of their clients are not experienced boaters. We had a couple of experienced boaters in our group. Very disappointed. We got the boat because we wanted speed and adrenaline. Towing our kids on the inflatable was boring to them because we were going so slow. When we got back I asked about this “throttle down” thing, and they told us the same thing. I’ve never heard of that before. The next day I called because I got a bill for an extra $50 for renting the inflatable. The boat description said that I came with a tow already, but the guy who answered said I misread it. Ok, that’s fine. But I asked about the “throttle down” again and this time the guy said they do not throttle down anything and started yelling at me. He sounded like the owner the way he was talking about the business. I have never been treated so unprofessionally. I was not upset or anything just wanted to get some clarification and he just plain started yelling at me saying they don’t “throttle down” the boats. The day before 2 people told me they throttle down boats. He just kept yelling and hardly let me get a word in. I am very disappointed that people like that actually are business owners. Combative for no reason. Maybe he was hanging a bad day? I dunno, but I am never going back here again and I would not recommend anybody going there. People like this do not deserve to be in business. Absolutely horrible people skills. I got hung up on for asking for clarification when I was given inconsistent information. Weird vibe from them. A bit shady. They are BS-ers
