We arrived at Omni's Mokara Hotel and Spa in the evening of Sat. July 26th. We were excited to be staying on the River Walk and to be able to treat relatives who were flying in from Switzerland to dinner there. High school friends joined us by renting a room at this same hotel upon my recommendation. Other lifelong friends... More

Hotel is lovely and service is very good. Simply not worth $500, especially when you have a view of the parking lot and fire escape. Concierge (Petra) was outstanding in helping arrange reservations and special treats. Hotel lobby is lovely and service is outstanding, the room is simply to pricey.

My hotel experience was one of the best ever. I was treated like royalty and I will continue to recommend this hotel always. I will also like to do a holiday stay-cation at The Mokora Hotels Spas in SA

It is easy to see why this is rated the best hotel in the city. The concierge Petra anticipated our needs expertly. Everyone was very friendly including those who clean rooms. We never had an employee pass us in the halls without them giving us a very real smile. Up until a few months ago I was working at a... More

We wanted 5-star hotel in San Antonio, and could only find 4-star options. We booked the Mokara and were glad we did. It was impeccable - the staff was great, the accommodations wonderful. The Mokara easily surpassed some Ritz Carltons we've stayed at in the past. Be sure to visit the spa.

This is the best place I have ever stayed at in San Antonio. I make 4-6 trips a year to the city and always stay around the river... decided to try this Hotel. The service, rooms, staff, restaurant and bar are incredible. I will be staying here every time I go to San Antonio from now on.

This is an outstanding hotel. The staff in particular are cheerful and courteous and showed an interest in our reason for travel (a drum corps competition at the Alamodome, who doesn't want to talk about their kid?) The room was well-appointed and very comfortable. I particularly appreciated the no-party policy, having stayed previously at a hotel that was filled to... More

I stayed recently with my husband for one night to celebrate our anniversary. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The check in process was slow and crowded. There was nobody there to valet the car, which is a problem b/c there is no where to park, you have to valet. We booked a couple massage and the spa was... More

Dear Mel: I was truly disappointed to read that your anniversary celebration at Mokara fell below expectations. I assure you that the lapses you describe are not at all typical of our hotel and spa, and we will continue to relentlessly train our associates and upgrade our property to exceed the expectations of our valued guests. If we may be... More

I booked the Mokara because of the ratings on Tripadvisor. I go to SA often and usually stay at another resort. The experience lived up to the high ranking on TA. From the moment we arrived for was great. Pulled up to the entrance, valet was there, doorman got our stuff so in before you know it. The bellman that... More
