The best bed I have ever slept in and the pillows were amazing. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. Great location for dinner and nightlife right on the Riverwalk. The staff was amazing! The rooms were large. The food was excellent!

If you want to stay in a fabulous hotel on the Riverwalk you will not find a better one, a more friendly staff and any better facilities than the Mokara. Truly a great experience and just puts the cherry on top of a great City

The Mokara hotel is very nice. Rooms are quiet and the well laid out. The bathroom especially large. Located on the River walk and centrally located. Staff was well informed and attentive to the hotel patrons. Always asking if we needed directions or give advise on where to go.

This hotel is a nice boutique like hotel. The front desk staff and valet were excellent. You can take the elevator down to the Riverwalk level and go from there. Our room was really nice. They had offered us a free upgrade with a view of the river, but we had 3 people and needed an extra bed. One thing... More

This is a nice, somewhat boutique hotel, right on the Riverwalk. I was there for two separate stays and for the most part was pleased. The rooms are nice, bathroom is spacious, with a separate shower and tub. I checked the grout in the showers (usually a good gauge on how thoroughly the place is cleaned); one room it was... More

I just visited the Spa for a deep tissue therapeutic message. I got a hot stone message. When I booked the appointment I ask if my husband could also get a deep tissue message as well and was told that the Texas Two step was a deep tissue message with hot stones. Let me tell you we got hot stone... More

Dear Kristine: Please accept my sincere apologies for any miscommunication regarding our services, and that the couples massage experience did not exceed your expectations. I know that Gianni Rivera, our Spa Director, has reached out to you separately to discuss and resolve your concerns in person. As you can imagine, we are unable to mix deep tissue massage with hot...

We stayed in this hotel on New Year's Eve. We've traveled quite a bit and this is by far the nicest hotel that we've ever stayed in!! We booked the Amor del Rio Package and had a very large room at the end of the hall. The room had a huge bathroom which had a double person whirlpool tub!! The... More

We loved the quiet sophistication of this small hotel. Everything was just perfect - location, spa, restaurant, and especially the staff. It was the perfect retreat from our hectic life. Although it is located on the Riverwalk, it wasn't loud.
