Things To Do
San Antonio perfectly embodies the spirit of the Lone Star State: a cosmopolitan city that seamlessly blends the diversity of cultures and traditions that came together to form it. Here, the sounds and flavors of Native America, Old Mexico, Germany, the Wild West and the Deep South merge as one. La Cantera Resort & Spa is representative of this rich history. The resort’s name also reflects its location in the scenic Texas Hill Country. Long described as the playground of Texas, the Hill Country provides the perfect location to enjoy the best that Texas has to offer.

Resort Pools
Enjoy the majesty of our hill-top vista from the comfort of our resort's heated, infinity-style, pools. Our Hill Country family resort also features a separate kids pool, which includes a splash area for toddlers and two water slides. For those seeking a sophisticated experience, the adults-only pool offers a secluded space with incredible Hill Country views, along with ten luxurious cabañas and a sophisticated poolside bar and restaurant, Topaz. Enjoy poolside dining at Vista Grille and bask in the sunshine at the Vista Pool. Villas guests have access to a private pool, and for our most secluded poolside experience, visit the pool at Loma de Vida Spa & Wellness.

Pool Cabañas
Be pampered poolside in your own private cabaña, available at both the resort and adult pools. The luxurious accommodations offer space to unwind and enjoy La Cantera Resort’s incredible pools and breathtaking views. The Resort Pool cabañas are family friendly and offer enough space for eight guests. The Adult Pool cabañas can comfortably suit eight adult guests. Both cabañas types include an in-cabaña refrigerator, HDTV, safe, ceiling fan, bottled water, small bites and a personal cabaña attendant. Cabañas are available for full day rentals and reservations are strongly encouraged.

Loma de Vida Spa & Wellness
Loma de Vida Spa & Wellness is a secluded sanctuary immersed in nature and situated on one of the highest points in San Antonio with breathtaking views of the Texas sky. The spa invokes the spirit of the Hill Country and Texas to inspire traditional spa offerings (massages, facials), signature experiences indigenous to the area and results orientated services integrating technology and nature to create a true sense of balanced well-being.

"Pleasantly surprised, Covid clean"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 21, 2020 NEW
Recently visited last weekend and to my surprise, we had a wonderful trip. This was my first but will definitely not be our last visit at La Cantera Resort & Spa. The grounds were beautiful, the hotel lobby and rooms were spotless and tastefully decorated. The pool service and food were all A+. The pool area was one of the nicest we have experienced at a hotel and we have visited many higher end properties. We utilized the hotel's shuttle service to visit the Shoppes which was a nice perk and very convenient. We self-parked and didn't think the walk was bad as other reviews mentioned at all. Can't wait it return. It was nice to relax in a less crowded setting as well due to Covid. Loved our stay!!

"Marvelous Hotel... But Some Flaws!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 09, 2020 NEW
Starting with the pros, La Cantera is a marvelous hotel, with gorgeous premises, breathtaking views and well kept gardens! The pools are nothing short of amazing with their infinite edges. At night the fireplaces and lights spread throughout the pool and patio areas are just great! Now with the cons, the rooms are unfortunately not even a close match to the style and beauty of the hotel. Rooms have been painted but are extremely old. Furniture is outdated and the TV is small and of poor quality. Same happens with the bathroom (rather small too). Main compliments: kudos to the management for the astonishing gardens, cleaning, pools and outside decor. Main complaint: the hotel should advise clients that they are fixing all of the roofs, instead of advertising that remodeling had finished. There was loud noise after 9am and plenty of dust coming into the room, due to cutting and fixing the roof! General disappointment: so far, I haven’t seen any advantage in VIP hotels, as being a Gold Member of Hotels.com As in previous hotels, La Cantera did not apply my 20% discount on food and beverages and refused to offer a room upgrade (and the hotel was quite empty)!

"Tiny Rooms"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 09, 2020 NEW
The property is beautiful but the guest rooms are tiny and the walls are paper thin so much so that you can hear a sneeze, a conversation and a toilet flush. The front desk staff is not properly trained. They could not find our reservation even though it was made through their website and we had a confirmation number. We were stalled at the front desk for 45 minutes which was very disturbing for my family since we arrived at 7:45 pm and wanted to get ready for dinner. The front desk clerk Nini finally made another reservation after making us stand and wait for 45 minutes and the hotel was only about 35% full. She gave us the worst room in the house that was for handicap and we had to kneel in order to hand clothes in the closet that dragged on the floor. We had a back of the house roof top nothing view even though our Confirmation was for a deluxe two queen bed room. My recommendation is for guest to call before they arrive to make sure they have their reservation and tell them ahead of time where in the hotel you desire to stay. This is totally inconvenient but necessary at this property.

"FABULOUS"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 29, 2020 NEW
I took my hubby here for his birthday last weekend and we had a GREAT time! WOW! They have renovated the hotel since we had been there last time and it was gorgeous! Our room (5106) was very nice. It was a great size and the bathroom was roomy with double sinks. The bedding and bed were comfy! Our view was overlooking the pool area. Speaking of pools, HOLY COW! The Topaz pool (adults only) was unbelievable. It was HUGE and had an infinity edge that looked out over the hills, golf course and the Hill Country. It was stunning. I believe that it was heated because the water was so nice. You can order food and drinks, right to your fabulous lounge chair. There are cabanas for rent but we didn't use one. With all the Covid rules now, there was PLENTY of space to social distance. We met friends for dinner at SweetFire Kitchens and YUMMY! Our server, Ryan, did a great job as well. The cocktails were tasty and our food was great! We sat out on the patio and it overlooks the lovely courtyard. We also ate breakfast here the next morning. One of my favorite things was the hours...meaning, the pool area was open until MIDNIGHT(!!) and SweetFire Kitchens serves breakfast until 5:00pm (at least on the weekends). That is AWESOME because the last thing you want to do on vacation, is get up early just to catch breakfast! Even though the resort is in a very fun area (movie theater, first class shopping, Top Golf, bowling, restaurants galore, Andretti's), you don't really even need to leave the resort. We didn't!! We had a FABULOUS experience and we can't WAIT to go back!!! Great job La Cantera! Oh, and Tiffany Coy, Director of National Sales, was THE best!!!
