Top notch service from beginning to end of stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. The spa services and facilities are not to be missed. You get access to spa facilities when you stay there, so no extra feel. Great way to unwind each day after sightseeing. Only slight complaint is I wish the gym and the spa area (sauna, whirlpool,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 April 2017

We went to San Antonio to see the River Walk and Missions. Also my granddaughter wanted some sun as she lives in Bellingham, Washington where it is still raining!! We couldn't have stayed at a nicer hotel. It overlooks the San Antonio River. You go downstairs to the bottom floor and walk right out onto the River Walk. The room...

Great hotel Although it is on the pricey side. I do believe my stay was worth the money. The service was incredible from free water bottles before leaving the hotel in the morning to the turn down service at night. I would definitely return to this hotel!

Property is wonderful; staff is exceptional. Check-in was seamless. Room was modern and quiet. I told the valet in the evening that I had an early flight; my car was waiting outside of the hotel when I checked out with no additional action by me. Concierge Petra helped me with a quick business matter. She was professional in all respects...

We chose the Mokara Hotel based on Trip Advisor ratings. It was ideally located right on the famous River Walk of San Antonio which is like living in the middle of a botanical garden. The hotel is directly across the street from the River Walk and the restaurant/bar is on River Walk level (one level down from the street) and...

The staff were very pleasant and helpful. They seemed to go above and beyond to try to help. I'm a tea drinker and usually have go without or have coffee flavored tea when there is only an automatic coffee machine in the room; here tea service (and even coffee) is complementary and only a quick phone call a few minutes...

We were traveling with another couple and chose Mokara based on the Trip Advisor ratings. We were not disappointed, and in fact our expectations were surpassed. The location on the River Walk is excellent, and if one were not staying on the River Walk it would probably be a completely different experience. We didn't have much of a view from...

Since it was my first time going to the river walk, I wanted to stay as close as possible. This hotel was very nice, quiet, and I have never been around a better hotel staff. This will be the only hotel that I stay in when I visit San Antonio.

We stayed at Mokara on our honeymoon and it was our first experience at a high end hotel and we felt so welcomed and everyone was very friendly. LOVED our stay. The room was awesome and we all the staff was very friendly and the service was great.
