“Great Family Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

My family of six stayed at the Hyatt Wild Oak in February 2014 and we had a fantastic trip. We exchanged another timeshare for a two bedroom unit for one week. The rooms were very nice and well equipped. We slept well in the beds, although the mattress on the couch bed would be inadequate for anyone other than a young child.

The highlights for my family were the pool and the Camp Armadillo kids center. The pool was heated to the mid 80s, and given that most schools were in session, we had the pool almost entirely to ourselves. The indoor waterslide was a blast. Unfortunately, the outdoor waterslide and the lazy river were undergoing repairs, but the weather was in the 30s and 40s for most of our trip (Darn you polar vortex!), so we probably wouldn't have used them anyway. When they weren't swimming, my children spent a lot of time making crafts and playing games at Camp Armadillo. The staff was excellent, and we can't say enough nice things about Patricia.

Other nice features of the property included the firepits (ask for a s'mores kit at reception), the playgrounds and the nature trail.

Rudy's BBQ is close to the property, and we ate there multiple times. The kids also loved the Children's Museum in downtown San Antonio.

We stayed here in February 2014 when the polar vortex brought sub 30 degree Fahrenheit temperatures to the San Antonio area. We were worried our trip would be ruined by the cold temperatures because our kids didn't want to be outside. But with the indoor/outdoor pool with two water slides (one inside) and the children's activity center Camp Armadillo, we were able to have a great time. The staff at Camp Armadillo was amazing, in particular Patricia, who spent a lot of time with our family.

We stayed here in late January and thought the property was amazing. JBs was excellent (had a special every lunch and dinner in addition to their regular menu and happy hour from 3-6), the Icehouse had the best chicken sandwich ever (quite a compliment coming from my family), and there were plenty of activities (pool, running trail, playground, putting green were our most frequently visited locations).

The rooms were very comfortable, having all the amenities of home. We particularly appreciated the in room laundry (very helpful for our 5 day stay) and spacious accommodations. The staff were always friendly and helpful, getting us anything we needed (special thanks to Dale for making sure we had everything we needed for our JBs takeout order). When you get the chance to come out, make sure to give yourself time to wander around the property and enjoy the details that make Wild Oak Ranch a treat!

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to the pool and JBs, (especially with kids), because you will probably be sp...

We usually are a Florida type traveler but due to scheduling thought we would try this property in San Antonio. Beautiful, peaceful, lovely condo - JB's food and Dale and Jillian top-notch. Truly enjoyed this trip. Weather always iffy in February but we had 4 beautiful days with 2 around the pool.

This is the third time I have been to Wild Oak Ranch so far in 2014. It is a great place, lots to do. We even went swimming in the pool today, Feb. 14, 2014. The staff here is fabulous and very friendly. We especially like all the employees at J.B's. Dale and Jillian are always very helpful. It is nice to go to a place where people treat you so great. The food at J.B's is awesome. Cancelled my New Years Eve Reservation at a fancy, big time steak to eat at J.B's, it was great. In fact it was so good we had our Valentines dinner there also.

My husband and I stayed last night at this great resort. We had no idea what our experience would be. We arrived to find a very ranch type setting paths, awesome pool for kids, great hot tub and fire pits.... for adults. Great place to stroll around. We really enjoyed the room, plenty of space, nice sound system, very quite... The balcony area very nice overlooking wooded area. The jet tub was a very nice surprise.
JB @ the hyatt wild oak had a relaxed inviting indoor outdoor eating area.
Our server Dale was great, as well as the manager Aaron. Both helping us with our food selection. We ordered the angus burger and their famous mac and cheese. WONDERFUL.
We both enjoyed our stay and will be tell our friends...Great Staycation spot for locals.

Room Tip: Large families may want to take groceries, foods.... great kitchen and patio for outdoor eating.

We have gone back several times in five years. Its relaxing, clean and so much to do on property as well. Game room, two pools, hot tubs, volleyball and beautiful garden with fire places to enjoy the night cuddled :)
