I was scared because of the mixed reviews on line. The first room we were given was not that great. We asked for a different room and the staff was accomodating. The second room was wonderful. Great pool with a wonderful pool bar. The Tiki Lounge was fantastic. Best Pina Colada and Mojito that we have had-fantastic bartender. The hotel was nice and clean and the Tiki Lounge overlooks the river walk. We upgraded to the Fun Pack and it was totally worth it for $30.00 more. Used the $30.00 in the Tiki Lounge-which was excellant. Parked the car and took the trolley into town to eat and see the sights. Also paid $10.00 for the river taxi and it was totally worth it. Combined with walking, the trolley, and the river taxi-we saw all of San Antonio-from King William, To SAMA and Matisse, to down town and the River Center Mall. Wonderful advice from the concierge about how to use the trolley, by texting. The staff really made the difference in making the trip one that was so/so to a fantastic experience. The hotel is on the river walk and I liked it a lot. Thanks El Tropicano for a wonderful time.
