“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 4, 2007

Excellent! one of the best places we've stayed. My girlfriend and I stayed here on a cool fall night,and one of the high points was sitting outside by the firepits with glowing wood fires going.
I would much rather stay here than on the riverwalk!

Great resort for families, romantic weekend, or girlfriend weekend. We went here for our anniversary and had a great time. They have an adult only pool that was great, it was quiet and relaxing even though the big pool was close by you couldn't even tell. The adult pool over looks the hillside and the golf course it is beautiful. They have a huge pool with water slide and beach entry pool for small kids. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The spa was nice too. It is a little pricey with all the hotel taxes they add on, but it is worth it for a nice get away. It is right up the street from Fiesta Texas and there is a nice mall with Nordstorm and Neiman's right near by too.

Public areas, pools, golf, spa, gym all great. Beautiful hotel. The staff is wonderfully responsive, friendly & competent.

Lots of families with kids of all ages. There is a large separate adult-only pool.

Food is also very good. Rooms are comfortable & very nice but not quite up to the level of public areas.

Well located for San Antonio, Austin, Hill country, water parks.

We spent one night at the La Cantera on the tail end of our trip to San Antonio and Port Aransas. Very pleased to receive a free upgrade to the casitas (cottage rooms removed from the main hotel). We had our own private pool (small but perfect for a 5&7 year old) and golf cart to zip around in. The kids loved this. This area of the property was also much quieter and relaxing than the main hotel. Nice patio to relax on with a filtered view of the golf course. I'd stay in this area again if offered. We paid $219 a night with AAA discount but this was for a traditional room.

The pool was a disappointment - smaller than expected and very crowded. The kids liked the slide - although a short ride and not very steep. With the number of families at this property and the size of the grounds, they need to build a second family pool with more slides, lazy river, etc. to compete with the Hyatt. Very nice rooms. Comfortable beds. Loved the linens. Great size for a family of 4.

Staff was very friendly. Ordered room service - food was good.

Loved the location. A short drive - 5 to 15 minutes - to everything we wanted to see and do - shops, airport, riverwalk. Boudros was recommended for dinner by friends from Austin but we never made it there. We had a good meal at Papasitas - texmex. Beef Fajitas were great.

Overall, I'd stay here again but only for a night or two. Not much to do on the property unless you are not a golfer. Beautiful course and looks very challenging.

Beautiful Hotel sitting on the mountainside. A PGA golf course surrounds this hotel. Great helpful staff. Rooms were nice and clean. The view was wonderful. It had great poolS little kid pools and a lap pool, little river and a water slide. The kids loved it. It was open 24hrs and we were out until 11pm swimming. Towel service was great, It was just an enjoyable hotel for all ages.

  • Liked — The pool was the best point of interest for us and our little children.
  • Disliked — For the price I would have thought the rooms would be more glamorous.

The stay here was excellent. I was there with my wife who is 6 mos. pregnant and our 6 year old daughter. The Pool area is the best around. Plenty of chairs and shade to relax and a great waterslide. This hotel is close enough to everything. We went to the Shops across the street and had a great meal at PF Changs. We spent one day at Sea World and also visited the Riverwalk and San Antonio Zoo. We ate Breakfast at the hotel, Very good but Very expensive. We also ate poolside one evening and it was reasonalby priced and also very good. The room and bathroom were both very comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel.

Just stayed there last weekend with my wife, 4 year old and 1 year old and the stay was excellent. We stayed there 2 years ago as well.

I really like the pool set up. There are great areas for all ages from toddlers to an adult only pool. We spent to majority of the time in the kiddie pool but also went into some of the other pools and the slide is very popular with the kids. Service around the pool area was very attentive.

Not sure if they do it every night but both nights(fri and sat) we were there they had smores at 8pm and an outdoor movie at 9pm.

The staff was very courteous from check in to check out. Our room was 4304 which was convenient to the pool, had a balcony and an ok view.

Kids 5 and under eat free and they have a breakfast and dinner buffet that is $15.95 for the adults. The breakfast buffet is really nice with pretty much everything you would want. The dinner buffet could use some improvement but very convenient when you have kids. Self parking is free and I think the valet is about $15/day.

Fiesta Texas is right next door as well a very nice upscale shopping center. Seaworld is about a 15-20 minute drive.

The pool water was a litte colder than expected. When we called they said it was heated to 85 but it definitely wasn't. It should warm up naturally though soon.

I would definitely reccommend and will probably go again this summer.
