Still in San Antonio and still having fun. Sadly the bright colder weather has been replaced by cool and misty days.
Our visit to the Rodeo and Stock Show exceeded all expectations. We were advised to arrive early as there was plenty to do and see before the show. We arrived just after 3 and spent time walking around the stock pens. Cattle and …
... the situation to the lady on the other end of the line (Lynne Meeks). It seems that the information she had did not match the information we had right there in black & white. OK so part of the problem was we had purchased a Rand McNally GPS first then returned it because we thought we had found something better. As it turned not, NO! So that's when we went back and made the big purchase of the Magellan GPS and a few other items, all on this receipt. Lynne pet ...
... and 54 miles until we called it a night, we stopped for gas in Junction TX. Pulled up to the gas station, out of the car, and there was my scary movie. There were bugs everywhere. Crawling up the gas pump. Laying dead on the road. Screaming, we tried to get gas and record this appalling phenomenon. It was impossible, it was too gross, had to get back in the car immediately. Stay away from Junction ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa San Antonio
Great For Kids
Stayed at the Hill Country Hyatt recently for family vacation and meetings. Rooms were nicely appointed and clean. The pool service was wonderful. The nicest thing about our experience was how much our children enjoyed the facility. The pool was spacious and had many areas for them to enjoy. They especially enjoyed the Lazy River. Also, there are S'mores and a movie in the evening. As mentioned in other reviews, there are a lot of children and it is not convenient to River Walk.
However, Sea World is very close. Bottom Line-- If I had my children with me, I would return to Hill Country Hyatt. If not, I would choose somewhere on River Walk.
We have three children and this is definitely the place for them to have fun. The lazy river is just great. I don't think the water is over 3 1/2 feet during the whole ride. My 4 year old finally just got out of her tube and floated in her life vest. They have a little beach where they kids can play and another little pool for the babies, toddlers across from the adult texas-shaped pool. They also have a new salon located in the health club area called "The Spaaaaht"...its for girls and pre-teens to get anything done like nails/hair braids/pedicures, nails, etc....the only draw back is that they were only open from 10:00am - 2:00pm the days we were there and we were at SeaWorld during those hours. Also, they book up rather quickly for massages, etc....so if you want one, you need to book it as soon as you can. My husband loved the health club area, too. You really have to watch the buffets in the Cafe. Our breakfast buffett was 13.00 a piece for adults and $6.00 a piece for the kids. We would have done better just eating off the regular menu...so make sure you ask about prices if they aren't posted when you walk in. I think that was the most expensive breakfast we've ever had for bacon, eggs, and pancakes! I really just enjoyed the big rustic furniture in the lobby areas and the big rockers out on the porch. I went out one evening and drank coffee and rocked under the stars it was very peaceful. It is a very kid-friendly hotel...I would not recommend this for a "couple". I did see at times, quite a few kids unchapperoned (I'm not comfortable enough to do this with my own children ages 9 and under...the ones I saw were mainly pre-teen/early teen aged. The furniture in the rooms could be updated and we did have some stains on our carpet area, but I didn't mind...we were just in the rooms to sleep or get ready for the next day. As long as I had good running HOT water in the shower (which stayed hot for all 5 of us) and a place to put my head at night, I was fine! We will be heading back there next year for sure.
the rooms were very clean and neat. the staff was very easy going and always offered a helping hand. the lazy river was wonderful and the pools were great! very family oriented and also good for couples. my family has been there 3 times and are planning to go thereagian and bring along friends this summer. I have 4 children ranging in ages 15 to 6 and they all have an awesome time! the food is great and when your at the lazy river and pools people bring you food and drinks poolside!!!! there are also beautiful nature trails and and beautiful golf course! And there is also a great camp hyatt for the young ones in the family that is great! this is not all there is more! go to hyatt in san antonio! you will have a blast! ( garenteed)
The only Hyatt that was a disappointment!
This hotel was not up to Hyatt quality!! It lacks all the fine features the other Hyatts are known for. This hotel should be known as a "children's resort" as many parents seemed to feel it was okay for their children to run and scream throughout the lobby and hallways. The Regency Club lounge was very poor compared to other Hyatts; their evening desserts consisted of cookies only (as opposed to most Hyatts, which offer wonderful Regency Club amenities) and this was a complete disappointment. The distance from the Riverwalk is also a drawback (especially considering a minimum of $60 round trip by cab, or $80 via the Hyatt Shuttle). The suite we had was nice but I would not advise anyone who wants a special vacation to stay here!
Great Family vacation spot!!
This will be our third summer in a row to go to the Hyatt Hill Country. We LOVE IT! It is a WONDERFUL, awesome family vacation spot -- it is definitely a FAMILY/KID-FRIENDLY place, so I wouldn't recommend going there if you don't have kids. The rooms definitely could use some updating/renovation, but it is still a wonderful place to go have fun! We love floating on the lazy river all day, and the fun family activities at nghts... movies on the lawn, hayrides, s'mores, the playground, etc!
The Hyatt Hill Country is looking VERY worn
The Hyatt Hill Country is San Antonio is the perfect resort for the family. It has a "Lazy River" where you can innertube all day, then have fajitas on the lawn and S'mores by the campfire. The golfing is great and the jogging and biking are quite nice, too. It's minutes away from Sea World and you can get downtown in about 20 minutes. The cowboy ambiance is also very fun. But the resort has not renovated its rooms in a decade and they are very beat up! I love going to the Hyatt Hill Country but I will not return until major upgrades have been made in the guest rooms.
Lots of Fun!
I was so surprised to find negative comments on the Hyatt Hill County, so I felt I had to write. We go back every summer with our son (6) and always have a great time. The resort is right across from Sea World, which is so great. We all love the lazy river and the kids love the sandy beach. Yes, when the kids are out of school it is full of families. Our son enjoys having others to play with and we enjoy floating around the river on our tubes with margaritas in our hands! Our experience has always been very positive! Have fun!
I recently stayed here for a meeting with the TX Land Title Assn. What an awesome resort. The hotel was decorated perfectly for the holidays and they have a new spa which is wonderful. The banquet food we had was as good as something you'd find in a fine restaurant.
I can't wait to bring my family down here sometime soon.
If you are looking for a resort experience in San Antonio DO NOT go to this place. We checked in to find a beat up room that was dirty and appionted much like a Days Inn. There was bloody kleenex in the room and every piece of furniture was stained, and dented.
Not for couples only.
My wife and I decided we needed a getaway for a week.We have no kids and decided a resort such as this would be a perfect destination. Not so. When we arrived, children of all ages were running wild throughout the lobby. Later, this turned out to be the case on most of the property. There is a very nice golf course, but my game is not that good to justify the $120 fee to play. Out of all the couples there at the resort, I think we were the only ones there without kids, which made for a very odd experience. All in all,if you have children who like to be unattended for several hours at a time, or are really into golf, this is the place for you. Otherwise, don't expect a quiet, romantic experience here.
