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
The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, is great for both business and leisure. A nine acre water park with a whirlpool large enough for swimming, is the premier leisure attraction. There is also a well stocked fitness center, a spa, golf courses, a game room, and more.
Meanwhile, when it comes to business, this Marriott can only be described as cavernous! There is a huge convention center, multiple restaurants, and over 1000 rooms. The service is five star all the way from the front desk to housekeeping to the concierge. If there is one downside, that would be the price. Look for a special or save up your Marriott Bonvoy points. Better yet, go there on business.
Stayed for a business meeting. Lots to do from golf to pool to spa. The food options are ok, could be better. Large sports bar on-sight. Rooms are comfortable, but not what you would expect from a JW property. You will have a comfortable stay, but again, not on par with other JW experiences I have had.
This place is indescribable. Really. Bring the kids, or leave them at home. Plenty of stuff to do, great restaurants, great activities. Golf anyone? Unbelievable courses, tracts. Incredible pro shop. You won't be ready to leave when yor times up. They make it easy to relax and enjoy. I promise!!!
Very nice sprawling resort near San Antonio. Very good for a relaxed holiday with children. Nice lazy river swimming, golf course next door. lot of indoor activity like pool tables, Chess,Basketball and swimming keep the children busy. Huge sports bar with plenty of action specially AFL on the huge screens. Excellent rooms and excellent service. Truly JW standards
Just spent 4 days at this “city” with 950 other friends at or National Sales Meeting. It was my first visit to the property. The newly renovated rooms were very well appointed and quiet. The bed was very comfortable and the AC/ heat actually worked normally which is rarely true for any hotel. The bathroom in a regular king room was massive with a tub and large shower. The conference center rooms and staff were exceptional. There are multiple dining and drinking options, two full TPC golf courses, a stand alone spa, and a waterpark. The surrounding landscape reflected what you would believe to be TX Hill country. Resort is about 20 minutes from downtown and should be considered if you are visiting anywhere near. Overall impressions...excellent staff, amenities, food, drink , rooms...5 Star across the board. I also loved the down home true southern hospitality! Don’t miss this oasis...
