5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Excellent hotel!! The staff are very friendly and helpful especially Petra,the concierge, who is very knowledgeable about restaurants and sights to see.A room on the riverwalk is a must,as the view is spectacular. To our surprise there was a bottle of champagne, as well as chocolate covered strawberries,raspberries, blueberries in our room as it was my wife's 70th birthday. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Ostra(Mokara restaurant) on the patio of the riverwalk. Each night a bottle of water was provided on our bedside table along with the bed being turned down.What a nice touch. We would definitely stay at the Mokara on future trips to San Antonio.

Quiet luxury right on the riverwalk. Room was the best we've had in San Antonio - spacious rooms, quality bedding. Service was a little off but they were always friendly and had great hospitality. The Spa is definitely worth a visit.

It was an outstanding experience. I arrived with high expecations due to the reviews on Trip Advisor and being ranked number one in San Antonio. However my expectations were exceeded. The accommodations were spotless and the amenities and little features made the stay extremely comforatble. I highly recommend the Mokara to anyone planning a stay

I found this place on Trip Advisor and again they took the cake. This place is WONDERFUL! Small boutique and charming! Beautifully decorated and the rooms are to die for. The staff so pleasant and on a holiday when we were all off they were happy to see us! It is a must stay when in San Antonio on the Rivewalk! Shhhhh don't tell anyone, it is my secret!

We enjoyed every moment of our stay, the staff are second to none, the location is amazing and the food was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable. This was our second stay at the hotel and will not be our last.
