Our first stay in San Antonio, not knowing the area we picked this hotel by chance. The hotel is easy to find by car from the airport, with good access to the freeway network (took less than 30 minutes). Great base for getting to theme parks, sports arenas, shopping malls, town centre, main tourist sites, all of which were no more than 30 minutes by car.
The hotel was in the middle of a major renovation while we were there but was so well managed that there was no negative impact on our stay. The renovation was to revamp the rooms and add slides to the water park.
My son (12) loved the water park, my daughters (20's) loved the spa. We used the free bike rental (30 minutes free) which could be improved if there was more access to the golf course trails.
We used the family-centric buffet for breakfast and a couple of evening meals. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Not the cheapest for those on a budget but certainly less than you'd pay in a major hotel in the centre of town.
Although the customers were a mixture of business visitors, golf players and families, we found the hotel looking after all types in equal measure and were definitely family orientated.
