Fodor's Expert Review La Cantera Resort & Spa

16641 La Cantera Pkwy., San Antonio, Texas, 78256, USA Fodor's Choice

Make a list of the things you'd look for in a luxury, full-service resort, and chances are La Cantera has it. The limestone quarry (cantera, in Spanish) on which it's built was a natural foundation for its golf courses. It also offers the full roster of resort services—including a 25,000-square-foot destination spa, kids' programs, and tennis court—and is immediately adjacent to upscale shopping, dining, and movies. On the northern edge of San Antonio, the resort is a short drive to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and SeaWorld and 30 minutes from the Alamo and the River Walk. It offers a choice of seven eateries, each showcasing Texas-inspired cuisine with a distinct Hill Country twist.

The resort has an adults-only floor, SEVEN, that has private access, a dedicated concierge, and more. The ultimate in privacy and personalized service is a stay at the Villas, La Cantera's retreat within a retreat. It's like your own serene neighborhood, where each beautifully appointed villa is named for an iconic Texas ranch; the sparkling pool, hot tub, and poolside bar are just steps from your private patio, and you have your own personal resort cart to travel around the 550 acres.
