Big Family Trip to San Antonio , Hill Country

We are looking into a big family trip to the San Antonio/Hill Country area in July - 17 adults, 10 kids (newborn to 16 yrs old). Any ideas where to stay? Something with a lot of activities, or activities in the area. Thanks.

I'm leaving for the Hyatt Hill Country tomorrow morning! I think that would be the best place for you & your family! I'll let you know more details when I get back, but I know they offer "Camp Hyatt" for kids 3 years old & up.

They offer a lazy river pool, spa, golf, etc...........

Hyatt will be quite expensive. There are several places along the rivers that have large cabins and multiple cabins that can be reserved by large groups. I've never had occasion to use them. Hopefully we'll get some replies here.

Hyatt Hill Country is VERY expensive (was just there about 10 days ago, and we had a discount). There were a large number of families there, but I think they had to be with the big corporations that were convening there....or they had to have gotten on some promo deal. That being said, it is a fabulous place to go, so many activities for kids and adults alike. Landscaping, wildlife very enjoyable, great golf course, lots of swimming options...food, a little disappointing. If you go, pack your own drinks and snacks...will save a lot of $$.

In a pinch, try Gasthaus Schmidt, Fredericksburg's B&B booking agency. A year ago they booked our family into a lovely two-bedroom house in Fredericksburg. What impressed me was their knowledge of the properties beyond B&Bs.

The cabins are a great idea. However, they tend to book up fast. We have friends who book the same cabin every year and their compound has yet to have a new opening in the summer.

I loved the Hyatt in Hill Country. I could see how it could be pricey, but that depends on where you have stayed in the past.

You can eat off property easily and bring snacks and food too.

No one seemed to mind that we drank our own beer or water down by the pool.

It was such a nice place.

Wild Oak is a Hyatt property too, but not in the hotels and resorts division, but vacation timeshare division, a separate entity. If it has yet to sell out, and I don't know that it hasn't, they do occasionally rent rooms, but once all the timeshares are sold, the doors are closed to the outside.
