One of very few times that an entire weekend stay for a group did not give anyone anything to complain about! Ok, maybe way too much salt in the burger from room service for one guy but room service breakfast was great! Decor, cleanliness, maintenance, valet, spa, front desk, concierge, housekeeping...everything was perfect!

1. good location 2. great service - outstanding staff 3. overall a very pleasant experience 4. Ostra restaurant was very nice for breakfast and had things on the menu that would appeal to everyone in the family. However, the dinner menu was expensive and limited to mostly (undercooked) seafood, which was too adventuresome for our taste.

We needed a break from work but we didn't have the time to air travel. We chose to go to San Antonio. Recently we had stayed at the Hyatt Hill Country, this time we chose Mokara - both for the spa. The Mokara was a better fit for us, more adult focused. The spa was heaven. The service was wonderful... More

Overall a good experience, however; the service received did not match what we were charged. We will look at other options in the San Antonio area for next years annual visit. There were many hidden charges that caught us by surprise. IN the past lunch was included in the spa package, this change led to a $100 plus lunch bill... More

If you're looking for a quiet refuge with friendly staff, you can't do better. Details matter at Mokara, and it shows in everything they do. I've stayed at six other Riverwalk hotels this is by far my favorite.

Amazing service amazing people amazing hotel. Really, that's why we pay...for top 10 service. San Antonio can be proud, the warmth and quality of the service is fabulous! Thank you! And one more thing: room are not warm and not conditioned dry. I appreciated the humidity level so I had great sleep

My sister and I take a few trips a year for enjoyment, usually to historic cities but many to Las Vegas as well and always stay in 4 or 5 star hotels. This particular trip was special as I was born at the Nix Hospital but left San Antonio as a baby for St. Louis. As this is my 60th... More

The room was quiet and comfortable. This room had no view, in fact if you looked out the window you will see a brick wall from the next building. If you want a view be sure to request one when you book the reservation. The hotel staff was very attentive. The location is right on the riverwalk in the downtown... More

This hotel made every accommodation possible. Wonderfully nice staff, great breakfast, and amazing room service. We felt pampered. Plus it has access to the river walk and is not far from most major attractions. We walked everywhere, until it started raining.

The Mokara Hotel and Spa in San Antonio is the first "boutique" style hotel from Omni Hotels and did they ever hit a home run! My partner and I spend two nights here for a quick getaway and enjoyed every minute. The hotel is beautiful, set in a historic saddle factory that supplied saddles to the Rough Riders back in...
