Visited family in San Antonio for Thanksgiving. The Mokara Hotel and Spa was our home for 2 nights. The accommodations were superior. The decor was stunning and our room had a balcony overlooking the Riverwalk. Both nights we had a bottle of Champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate truffles, and fruit delivered to our room. The patio breakfast each morning on...

A very clean and comfortable hotel. Staff was very considerate and helpful. Bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Hotel smelled wonderful, not the usual musty smell at most hotels. I guarantee you'll enjoy it. Price for a non balcony room is the same as a balcony room at inferior hotel, and most definitely worth it. Oh yeah, the tub...

Stay here. You will feel like royalty. Absolutely the best hotel stay I have experienced. Please request a room with a balcony with a view of the Riverwalk. You will be glad you did. If you are sensitive to street noise while sleeping, request a sound abatement machine from the front desk.

I absolutely love this hotel!!! I stayed there as business so I didn't have high expectation but it was AMAZING! I wish I could have been there with my husband! I would choose this over Four Seasons and Ritz if there was a choice for less than half price too! ( I would still choose this hotel regardless of price...

I celebrated the 10th anniversary with my wife and the plan was to get the breakfast delivered to the room. Unfortunately, nobody picked up the door hanger that we placed the night before. So we ended up walking hungry to the restaurant which is outside of the hotel. There was also no water in the room. But we enjoyed the...

We did not use our members hotels to get points. Instead we opted for a quality hotel, near all the important attractions, on the Riverwalk, close to the Alamo and chock full of amenities. The hotel is in pristine condition and maintains every detail daily. We saw cleaners, painters and caring individuals in all parts of the hotel. Our room...

This was our first visit to San Antonio, and we think that Mokara is as good as you can do. Great view of the River Walk and its craziness for our balcony, but far away enough to block most of the noise. The property itself was beautiful and well maintained. The best think however was the staff. From valets to...

This is the first tripadvisor review I've done, but this hotel deserves it. I've stayed at about a dozen different hotels in the San Antonio area, and Makora, is by far, the best property I've stayed at in San Antonio. The food is excellent, service is similar to a four seasons or ritz carlton, all of the rooms are well...

Go ahead and splurge on the riverview room! Sit out on the balcony, have a glass of wine, and watch the boats on the river below. Next morning, have your complimentary pot of coffee while on that same balcony and watch as the San Antonio Riverwalk comes alive. You may be tempted to spend your whole visit right there...but don't...

We can't say enough positive things about our experience at Mokara! The moment you check in you are treated with uncharacteristic courtesy and appreciation for your stay with them. The staff, the spa, the food and the accommodations were all outstanding and I would recommend anyone that is looking for a respite from the daily world check in to Mokara...
