Poor service, poor value

JW review Pros- nice architecture, kids activities look fun (unverified) Cons- 1. Incompetent room service: we asked for enough tea and water for two people and the server only brought 1 cup and 1 cup's worth of water. 2. A luxury hotel should not have beds that are lumpy. Our bed had a large hump in the middle. 3. Poor planning: on a Sunday morning, we were told there was a 25 minute wait for brunch at the restaurant when there were more tables that were empty than seated. Management should anticipate times of increased demand and increase restaurant staff accordingly. 4. Astonishingly inefficient valet parking. We waited 45 minutes for our car to be retrieved, and had to hunt down the valet staff to make sure it happened. They appeared stressed and indifferent to customer service. In sum, this hotel is absolutely not worth the luxury prices it charges. It gives lip service to customer care, but in reality is substandard in every way. Go somewhere else.

Impressive stay

We spent 5 days in this hotel, which looks already impressive from the distance. Comfortable, spacious and friendly staff. Good location for us, as we wanted to visit the Northern surroundings of San Antonio. For this hotel an own or hired car is essential.

Family Friendly, yet elegant

We have two children and the resort offers plenty of entertainment if you choose to spend the day there. The location also affords you the opportunity to take short, fun day trips to a number of historical sites and other places of interest. The food is terrific and the prices were reasonable. I didn't have the chance to golf but the Texas Open was taking place later in the week and the course looked terrific. We would definitely return.

Beautiful hotel

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is really friendly and helpful. Warning!! Do not stay there if you want a quiet time!! It is catered for families (it has a small water park) so there are a lot of kids running around everywhere. Also, couldn't get to sleep in since there were kids making noise in the hall, and apparently the walls are paper thin. This is definitely a place to go if you have a family.

Great Family Vacation

Really enjoyed resort. Although it is several miles (about 15) outside of the downtown area and therefore, renting or having a car is essential, the resort itself was beautiful and the pool and water park great for the kids. Good restaraunts on resort but also several very close by (within 2-3 miles of resort property) as well as a great dine in movie theater if you want to escape the heat for a few hours. My boys had so much fun, they actually said that they were going to miss Texas when we were leaving.

Riverwalk and the Alamo is a must. Amazing shops and restaraunts and you can take a boat tour of the river to learn more history of the city. Villita Village has art shops and galleries that can be found in the oldest residential section of the city where they converted antebellum homes into galleries and restaraunts.

A Great Family Get Away!

An awesome resort! The poolside and the River Bluff were a BIG hit with the kids. The resort felt like a home away from home. We all enjoyed hanging out in the lobby areas at night to play games. The resort grounds were beautiful and full of activities for the kids...tennis, basketball, games, etc. The location was pretty convenient...short drive to the highway. We recommend RiverWalk, The Alamo, SeaWorld. We all love the Natural Bridge Cavern and Safari...only 20 minutes drive from the resort.
