We saw more police arrests per day than in any other city we have ever stayed in! However, once in the safety of the Mokara, all is well. The rooms are excellent, spacious & comfortable. Breakfast was disappointing, I don't think they had a professional Chef working on the day that we ate, I could have done a better job....

Just returned from a couples weekend trip and can safely say this is the finest hotel in downtown San Antonio. I could go on about the fantastic rooms, great service and world class spa but it's what you would expect from a truly 5 star property. Note that the spa is clothing optional so you may need to switch into...

Had a business weekend here. A/V service were great, comparable prices of typical in-house a/v (always expensive). Hotel rooms were fantastic. Bath butler was interesting, I didn't see much value in it though. They just draw the bath for you and turn the jets on, it will probably be a maintenance man that will do it for you.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we had a perfect visit. The hotel was immaculate, smelled wonderful and was a beautiful and relaxing retreat. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the spa was the best that we have ever experienced. We will definitely be back.

This hotel is nice, don't get me wrong. It just did not live up to the standard it seems to set for itself. Entering the lobby, there is a feeling of quiet elegance. Then the staff addresses you and what the feeling turns into is snobbish-ness. Many of the other guests seemed to perpetuate this feeling, and my husband and...

Visited Molara Spa while in San Antonio and got the best massage ever with Lauren. Liked it so much took my husband the next day for a massage and I got a facial! The spa was so calming and no detail was overlooked. I spent an hour in the Relaxation Room getting a much needed break. Their aromatherapy bath products...

This hotel provides well-appointed rooms, good service, cleanliness and a fantastic restaurant. Time and again, during our stay, I observed the results of excellent training. Don't expect a large pool, but it was adequate for cooling off at the end of a day of being out and about. The Sunday breakfast buffet was lovely. This property offers access to the...

I am so happy to be able to write a glowing review for a hotel in all areas that they provide service. The staff, wonderful. The property, wonderful. The service, outstanding. At a time when a personal and caring hospitality experience is rare, with hotels depending on their amenities alone rather than service excellence to satisfy customers, my stay with...

The Mokara is a beautiful property. At an excellent location, along the river walk. The spa is exceptional and the pool area is stellar. Great service too! I would recommend this hotel. I walked to the mall and to the Alamo. We had a great time and will stay at this location our next trip to SA.
