El Cosmico

It’s been a week since we came back from Marfa and the most common question I have received is, how was the hotel?? In short, it was great! This place has a unique way of offering you a place to rest your head.

Situated at the edge of town, El Cosmico is where you want to be if you want to experience a non-traditional hotel. Different from your standard rooms or suites you have a few options to choose from. You can pick from trailers, yurts, teepees, safari tents, or even pitch your own tent. For our trip we reserved a safari tent!

A good thing to know is that check in is scheduled for 3pm and check out 12pm. Considering they are usually fully booked you will not only want reserve in advance, but also plan for activities early in the day until you can get in.

So here’s the gist…

We arrived early and went ahead and grabbed some coffee, browsed their store, found the cutest shirt for our daughter, and then relaxed on the communal hammocks.

Other amenities they offer include outdoor kitchens, seating areas, and a bar.

The necessities include private outdoor bathrooms, tubs, showers, and an open area to wash up.

Our room was pretty perfect as I’m sure each one is in it’s own way.

Our tent included a queen size bed with the most colorful blanket. There is working electricity inside which allows for overhead lighting, a fan, because you definitely need it during the day, a heated blanket for the evening (y’all it’s cold out here)and a desk area. On the desk you have a Mini bar of sorts that includes a wide variety of items at a cost.

This is very much glamping with very bohemian/hippie vibe. We loved it!

The entry door is a combination of a few hooks and a couple of zippers, one being mesh and the other a solid canvas for privacy. There are also two small windows to allow in light during the day or for gazing at the stars at night.

We really loved our stay! It was nice and quiet all evening and although cold, the heated blanket helped a ton. Except for Andrew, haha, his went out in the middle of the night which only meant we had to cuddle more. 🙂

Whenever we head back west there is no doubt that we will not stay here again. Next time we will for sure choose a different room to experience something new.
