JW Marriott San Antonio Resort & Spa Review

Set among the bubbling streams and tree-covered hills of Cibolo Canyons, just outside central San Antonio and at the entrance to Texas Hill Country, the JW Marriott San Antonio Resort & Spa offers a magnificent family escape. The resort encompasses just over 1,000 rooms, including 85 suites, so don't expect an intimate retreat, but the spacious design is such that you should never feel like you're part of a crowd. In the guest rooms, custom-designed furniture that incorporates hand-tooled leather, copper, and ironwork brings a touch of the surrounding countryside inside. Bathrooms are spacious with separate tubs and showers, and some suites feature cozy fireplaces. Among the resort's seven dining options, Cibolo Moon is the signature restaurant, featuring a refined interpretation of authentic Texas cuisine plus stellar buffets and brunches loaded with homemade items, down to the condiments. What really makes this resort special, however, are the outstanding facilities: the River Bluff Water Experience includes a 650-foot river-rapids ride, a 1,100-foot lazy river, and designated children's and adult pools. The sumptuous Lantana Spa is a peaceful oasis that has its own restaurant and pool and a lengthy menu of natural and organic facial and body treatments. And finally, the TPC San Antonio Golf Resort, open exclusively to resort guests and members, features two championship courses designed by Pete Dye and Greg Norman.
