@SAVEinSA~The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort

Have you ever been to a place and wanted to live there?  Not a location an actual place you are staying at like a hotel.  Check the picture below.  This is where we stayed at on our mini-vacation to San Antonio.  As you are driving up this is what you see...
Welcome to The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort.  It is an amazing place that is right next to Six Flags Over Texas and like I say, down the street, around the corner from SeaWorld.

I was in awe of this place. When we arrived to check in, there was someone playing music in the lobby. While we waited to check in, there was another person doing magic tricks. We felt so welcomed.  Check out our room...
Our room was great and had a wonderful view.  I believe any room you stay at in this resort, you will have a great view.  This is Lil Bit and I on our balcony.
I really like that there were so many activities for us to do.  We received a schedule.  There was stuff for the kids, adults, and families do all day long.  If you wanted to relax, then head to the spa.  If you wanted to take in the view, and enjoy the hill country, then head to the 1 mile nature trail.  If you got hungry, there are plenty of resturants to choose from indoors and outdoors. 

My favorite spot was El Fortin.  (great wedding spot for anyone looking)



El Fortin was set up at night for movie nite on the lawn.  There was pocorn too.  Every night was a different kids movie.  In the morning, El Fortin was set up for exercise where instructors came in and taught class in the open morning air.

Another favorite memory is The Looney Tunes Breakfast where Lil Bit met and took pictures with the characters.  All the kids really enjoyed the characters coming around and spending time with each of them.  They colored with them.  They even got their autographs.  And yes, check out the view in this place.
From the pools to the petting zoo, yes you heard right, a petting zoo.  There was so much to do.  We did not want to leave this place.  But goodbye and see yah soon we must say.

My husband would like everyone to know this resort has a golf course.  And it is a PGA tour stop. 

***Disclosure-No compensation was received.  Thank you to @SAVEinSA and The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort for our complimentary stay.  These are our honest opinions.

I was fortunate enough to stay here a couple of nights for a business trip a few years back and I loved it! I especially loved that bathtub.

I've always heard Texas has great things to do, but I've never been other than the airport. What a relaxing weekend you seemed to have had!
