My mani pedi cost me $ 150. I had a gift card worth $ 115.00. I had to add & 10.00 to that to get these 2 basic services. With tip of $ 30 I actually paid 40$ for the service. The shellac manicure was worse than the one I pay for at my regular nail salon... the pedi was... More

This review is for service and atmosphere. If you are looking for steam sauna spa pool etc they don't have that. They do have lovely and calm decor, attractive treatment rooms, yummy robes, and terrific staff. Perfect facial by Leslie. Top 99.9% level massage by Carl -- what an expert. Very professional, products are top notch. Service excellent. I got... More

My wife and I booked a few services as part of our trip to La Cantera is celebrate our anniversary. My wife enjoyed her very first facial there. Perfect choice for a first time, because she was extremely pleased with the facial and the knowledge and caring displayed by her therapist. She also greatly enjoyed her Swedish massage. She's hooked... More

While the location is a little hard to find within the Westin hotel (my only complaint), Melissa gave me a terrific deep tissue massage and Catherine gave me a perfect spa manicure. The products are not only eco friendly but luxurious and help you feel pampered. I routinely get massages so I understand when someone is going through the motions... More

Susan W gave the most amazing massages for neck, shoulders, back, and feet - my husband I have massages regularly and she gave us the best 50 min. massages we have ever had. Not sure how they accommodate more then a couple, but there was only one changing/bathroom area and a very small waiting room. Fortunately only my husband and... More

We are staying at the Westin Riverwalk, where the Woodhouse Day Spa is located. I love facials and massages, and thought this would be a good opportunity for break from the meeting we were attending. The facility would be better named a massage parlor, than a "spa". The reception area is also where you wait for your service, it is... More

I have been here several times in the past and every time it just gets better and better! My husband & I get the couples Swedish massages and it is the best! No one else comes close.

Cindy took care of me and was wonderful. Half way through she stopped and showed me the difference between the two sides of my face. She was wonderful! I would definitely return again!

I needed to find a spa while my stay in San Antonio. I did a search and found The Wood Day Spa at the hotel Contessa. I got a neck, shoulder, and back massage with Michelle. Michelle, did a wonderful job! I highly recommend her if you need TLC on your upper body.

I went to the Westin Hotel location on the Riverwalk. My massage was 60 min. Deep tissue massage, with 25 min. Reflexology along with the Nu wave facial was awesome! The spa accommodations were like going to a local massage near home. The waiting area very small and anti spa like. No meditation room, no lockers, no robe or slippers... More
