Couldn't be more pleased with this trip. Ambience, location, staff, food, all 5 stars. Went on a business trip, will be returning with my family next time we are in the area. The rooms were exceptionally beautiful. Highly recommend.

This hotel location is excellent, right on the river walk to enjoy the lights and the city. The one area that this hotel stood out above all is there service and friendliness. It is said to say nowadays many of the "fine" hotel have forgotten what that word means. This Hotel shines in this department. The Concierge Petra was simple...

Wonderful stay at the Mokara. The location was ideal and we opted for the King Riverview room and the Christmas lights were very festive. The entire experience was outstanding. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend.

The quality of the food in Ostra and the in room dining options seemed to have dropped off a bit. The Towels in our room were a bit...

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.
