With its hacienda-inspired architecture and relaxed Texan style, this sprawling country resort has a little of something for everyone. Golf aficionado? Look forward to 36 holes of golf on a course that hosts the annual Valero Texas Open, designed by two of golf’s biggest stars, Pete Dye and Greg Norman. Pampering more your scene? The Lantana Spa has 30 treatment rooms, including two couples suites with fireplaces and two outdoor private treatment rooms. Guest rooms are large, with Juliet balconies overlooking the rolling hills of San Antonio Hill Country. When it comes to eating, the choices are just as impressive, with six dining experiences showcasing Texas specialties like BBQ, aged steaks, and Tex-Mex dishes.
In the Area
Take an oenophile’s tour of the surrounding area with Texas Hill Country Wineries or entertain junior travelers at Natural Bridge Caverns, a complex of natural cave systems open for tours and other open-air diversions like zip-lining. For a dining experience that’s more Mex than Tex, head to La Hacienda dos Barrios, whose menu features south-of-the-border treats like carne asada tacos and shrimp-stuffed chile relleno.
How to Get There
Starting with Valet, they loaded our bags while I checked in. Front desk was so friendly. Valet who took our bags up left us his name in case we needed anything else. Room was clean, spacious. We had a king and double adjoining. Dined at 18 Oaks the first night, excellent food and service. All the restaurants on the resort were great. Kids activities every other hour. Breakfast buffet with the biscuits and gravy, to die for, said my family. I'm Celiac and they had a menu for me.Bar had a great lounging area, places for everyone. Not too loud. Pool is amazing. Grounds are amazing. This was a great place. Worth the price of a nicer resort. Downsides - the smell of the bbq drifted in our room so we were hungry most of the time, lol. The pillows are super soft and spongy, we drove in and brought our own. Just be aware. Drinks at the bar are pricey but we got great service and had such a good time, I can over look that. Overall, it was amazing and we will visit again. It's off season, I would imagine the summer is pretty crowded. November is a perfect time to attend.
A three night stay for a conference. Absolutely perfect. Amazing room and hotel facility. Staff, could not be more helpful. Would give it more stars if possible! One the nicest all around hotels I have stayed at.
To be honest, I'm a bit of a traditionalist, thinking that holidays should be spent at home or at home of family. However, in 2 of the last 4 Christmas's we met family at this resort and...it is fantastic!! The facility is beautiful and the food is fantastic. The brunch is the best I've ever had, and the Christmas dinner is very,very good! I would highly recommend, and intend to go again! Turns out...you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!
