Update: The contest has now ended, but please feel free to still enjoy the review!

San Antonio and I have had an interesting history over the past year. My husband and I had a great anniversary trip to San Antonio last fall – so much so that we decided we needed to plan a family trip to bring our toddler to experience some of the “kid friendly” things the city has to offer. So, we planned a family trip in December of 2011, but then had to cancel when we found out pretty last minute that our renters in our Austin house were moving out, and we needed to get the house ready to put on the market. Instead of seeing Shamu, we were painting, scrubbing, and meeting with a realtor that weekend. We rescheduled our trip for May 2012, but my own work travel schedule temporarily got pretty intense around that time frame, so we decided for family sanity to just stay home that weekend. However, we had not given up on wanting our daughter to have fun in San Antonio, so when Hyatt reached out to me to have us come and experience three days of “Free Time” at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, there was no way I could say no. It was the perfect opportunity to take Little C on the River Walk, through the lazy river at the resort, and to see Sea World!

Since we were able to see and do a ton of stuff in our three nights at the resort, I am going to divide this series into three different posts. The first two will be dedicated to the resort, and the final post will be about some of the things we did a a family in San Antonio. I’m very excited to not only share my experiences at this resort and in the city of San Antonio with a toddler, but to also help one of you experience a very similar trip of your own courtesy of a giveaway sponsored by Hyatt and this site! The grand prize winner will receive three nights mid-week at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa (blackout dates do apply) and a $250 Hyatt gift card to use at the resort for food, beverages, Camp Hyatt, golf, spa treatments, etc. Two runner-up winners will receive a $50 Visa gift card. More details on the prize and on how to enter at the end this post.

The Lobby and Check-in:

The lobby reminded me some of the Hyatt Lost Pines resort. They both have large and beautiful lobbies that sort of feel like your own very large and very nice living room. Our kiddo loved the rocking chairs, the golf cart, and especially the cave in the lobby. Yes, there is a cave in the lobby! In fact, it actually took a really long time to get our C through the lobby due to her going in the cave, sitting in each rocking chair, and pretending to drive the golf cart every time we walked through the lobby. It was quite handy when we wanted to keep her occupied if we were waiting to get our car from valet though!

Check-in was very simple and efficient. We were told that we were in a suite in a quieter portion of the resort. That may have been a nice way of saying very far from the lobby! However, it was indeed a quiet part of the hotel, and we were quite grateful for that given our need for peaceful sleep for our little one. I love that the hotel even has signs up at night in the hallways reminding guests that kiddos are sleeping. For what it is worth, we also remind our daughter that people are sleeping when she is walking down the halls wide awake by 7AM!

The Room:

The Hill Country Suite is a true two room suite. It is the standard upgrade if you are using a confirmed suite upgrade (though I am told there are also occasional upgrades to the VIP suite!). Again, the layout reminded me of my visit to the Lost Pines, which was a good thing. The living space had a TV, a couch, a chair, a mini fridge, and a dining table. Basically, it had enough room for us to explode with all of our stuff! I actually love having the fridge. It allows us to raid the Regency Club and have our own stock of drinks and snacks in our room. It is also nice to be able to open the curtains and look outside or eat our breakfast out on the patio.

Since we had a living room and hall closet for most of our “stuff”, we were able to keep the bedroom pretty neat and orderly. The bedroom pretty much consists of just a room for sleeping – which works for us. There isn’t much extra room in there, but you don’t need it when you have the living room. The blackout curtains did a great job at allowing us to sleep in a little, and I appreciated that the bed was king sized so that the three of us fit comfortably in the same room. I hate it when suites have small beds!

The bathroom was clean and I have no complaints. It wouldn’t hurt the bathroom shower area to be upgraded whenever the hotel does a round of renovations just to make it feel more modern, but it was also perfectly fine in its current condition. I rarely have time to linger in bathrooms; so as long as they work properly, I’m pretty happy.

The Regency Club:

By virtue of my Diamond status, we were given access to the Regency Club. If you don’t have status with Hyatt, you can still book Regency Club rooms for an additional premium and/or spend 4,000 additional Hyatt Gold Passport points per night if you are on an award stay. Only you can decide if that premium is worth if for your family, but we always get a great value out of club access. We eat breakfast, snacks, and sometimes even make a dinner out of the evening appetizers in the club. Given food prices at resorts, it is fair to say that as a family of three we often get about $50-$75 in actual value from the club each day. However, in reality the value is greater than that for us due to just having the peace of mind that there isn’t a charge every time we are thirsty or hungry. We can also get food from the club and eat it in our room without having to pay room service prices.

This club did a good job of having multiple food and snack options at a time. There were some things that tasted better than others, but I was always able to find something that we all enjoyed. A tip if you stay here: the staff in the club are very attentive to keeping the mini fridges full of drinks, which is great. However, that often means that the drinks in the front are not yet chilled. Pull from the back. πŸ˜‰ We never saw dirty dishes in the club, and there were always 2-3 employees in the club making sure everything was in order and everyone was taken care of.Β  I never saw them say no to any request in the club – they were super friendly and very helpful.Β  Like at many resorts, the club is open seasonally (typically Memorial Day through Labor Day plus busy times during the winter holidays), so make sure to inquire as to whether or not it is available during your stay.

Prices and Award Stays:

Resorts like this one during peak travel times are often not cheap.Β  While much of my trip was graciously covered by Hyatt, that is not how we normally travel (first time, in fact), so I am very interested in finding ways to afford returning to this resort in the future.Β  On weekends in the summer, this resort seemed to often be price at $250 per night and up for a basic room – sometimes a bit higher than that.Β  Weekdays seem to run a bit less, and once the kiddos go back to school in late August, the rates do seem to drop some.Β  If you have some flexibility in your plans, really look at the rates for different days and weeks as they do vary.Β  If you happen to be a government employee (and I know there are many in the San Antonio region), I have seenΒ  the government rate for $106 per night.Β  That is a steal!Β  Also, remember to check for promos like the current “Free Time promo” to really save some cash (and get free breakfast!).

There is a $22 per night resort charge that covers internet, full use of golf practice facilities and chipping green, golf bag storage, preferred golf tee times, complimentary personalized golf bag tag (please claim at the golf shop), tennis, bike rental, 800/888 access charges and local phone calls.Β  I hate resort fees, but they are the nature of the beast at many resorts, so be sure to factor that into the total price.

This hotel is a Category 5 hotel meaning that it costs 18,000 points per night for a basic room, or 22,000 points for a Regency Club room.Β  I would say that is a pretty fair Category for this hotel.Β  If you are going on a peak travel time, then spending 18,000 points per night is probably a pretty good deal as you would be getting close to two cents per point value.Β  If you qualify for a promo/discounted rate, or travel on the less expensive off-season, then it may make sense to save your points and spend cash (if that is an option for your budget).

You could also choose to use your two free nights from getting a Hyatt Credit Card at this resort.Β  This is by no means the most expensive Hyatt in the world at which you could redeem your free nights, but not everyone has Tokyo, Paris, etc., on their travel agenda, so this might be a good use for a “closer to home” resort.Β  Another route would be to get the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card.Β  The 40,000 point sign-on bonus your receive after spending $3,000 in three months is more than enough for two nights at this hotel if you transfer your Ultimate Reward points 1:1 to Hyatt.Β  In fact, with the points you would earn from meeting the spending required for your sign-up bonus, you would almost have enough points for two nights in a club room.Β  A third option is the Ink Bold Business Card.Β  If you can meet the $5,000 spending required for the full 50,000 point bonus then you would end up with more than enough points for three free nights at this hotel.Β  Depending on the going room rate, that is more than $750 in value out of one credit card sign-up.Β  All of these are good options if your goal is to get some reward nights at this hotel.

Contest Details:

Of course, the cheapest way to visit this resort is to just win this contest and go for free!Β  As I mentioned earlier in the post, the Grand Prize will be three nights mid-week at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa (blackout dates such as holiday weeks and Texas Spring Break week do apply.Β  The prize has no cash value).Β  Additionally, all three nights must be used on one trip.Β  The winner will also receive a $250 Hyatt gift card to use at this resort for food, beverages, Camp Hyatt, golf, spa treatments, etc. (yes, it must be used at this Hyatt).Β  Two runner-up winners will receive a $50 Visa gift card.

To enter to win, just leave a comment on this post stating why you want to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa.Β  You are limited to one entry per post in this three part series.Β  However, you are encouraged to enter three times by commenting once on each post in the series.Β  I will randomly select one winner from each post once the series is complete.Β  Of those three winners, I will then randomly select the Grand Prize winner.Β  The other two runner’s up will each receive $50 Visa gift cards.Β  (I bet you can guess which card I will be using to purchase those cards for 5x points!)Β  The Grand Prize winner will be put in touch with Hyatt to arrange their free three night stay and $250 Hyatt gift card.Β  I will send the $50 Visa gift cards to the other two winners.Β  Sound good?

Check back in a few days for the next installment of my review of the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa.Β  In that post I will talk about many of the awesome activities and amenities that are available at the resort.Β  As a teaser, it will include horse drawn carriage rides, a couples massage, an outdoor movie, and more!

Disclosure:Β  I do receive a commission if you are approved for a credit card using one of my affiliate links.Β  As always, thanks for your support!

Comments

  1. I want to visit because I haven’t been to San Antonio in ages and I would love to visit another Hyatt.

  2. I travel to visit family near San Antonio every year and it sure would be nice to stay at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort instead of on the pull-out sofa… πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve been through San Antonio, but I’ve never had the chance to stay for awhile and see the sights – it’d be fun!

  4. I would love to take my 5-year old niece who is fascinated with “cowboy” things and keeps asking when she gets to go to Texas!

  5. I would love to win the contest, as i love the Hyatt brand, the hotel sounds awesome, and we’ve never been to Texas!

  6. I stayed there as a child when it first opened and the golf course was not yet completed. I would love to take my three kids there. We have not made the trip to San Antonio as a family yet.

  7. Wow! This place looks gorgerous! My fiancee and I never been to Texas so I would love to surprise him with this if I’m the lucky winner. He’s had a stressful year with losing his job, finishing a tough first year in grad school and planning our wedding for next year. We would finally be able to go somewhere to think about nothing and chillax πŸ™‚
    Thanks for a fab giveaway!

  8. I’d love to visit the Hill Country Resort and Spa. I live in Austin, so this would be a nice weekend away.

  9. My 6 year old already has a list of places she wants to visit, and the Alamo is on the list. This would be a fantastic family getaway!

  10. Beautiful property! I would love to visit for the golf! The resort fees are a great value for all of the golf inclusions!

  11. We’ve really enjoyed sneaking away from Austin to the Hyatt Lost Pines and this one is the next closest Hyatt Resort.

  12. Who wouldn’t want to visit a hotel that has beautiful scenery, beautiful hotel layout, spacious, friendly and just welcoming. I would go there and get some R&R and enjoy Austin for the first time ever.

  13. I would love to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because it is a beautiful hotel, and we would also love to visit Texas. Thanks.

  14. Lived in Texas years ago and always enjoyed San Antonio. Would love to go back and get me some good mexican food and hit the links at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort.

  15. I absolutely love traveling to San Antonio. I find something new and fun to see and do everytime I am there. I love traveling and hope that one day my daughter will love it too. San Antonio is someplace I want to take her and experience through her eyes. The Hyatt there looks amazing and I am adding it to my “must go” list!

  16. Seven years ago our son was born in San Antonio. We hardly ever get a chance to go back and visit friends. This would give us the perfect excuse to take some vacation as a family in our favorite Place in Texas!

  17. I have been wanting to go to this resort for a long time! It looks like somewhere my husband and I could have a great time. Plus we don’t live far, so we could get there easily.

  18. I would love to win this because I have never been to San Antonio and it is on my travel to-do list. Thanks!

  19. I’d like to go back and give this property another try. Seems your stay was a lot better than mine.

    When I visited, the Regency Club was closed. Diamond amenities were not offered and when I inquired, they were not honored. Add to that the ‘resort fee’ (for internet, which I get for free anyway), and I have to say I was left wondering why I would return to this place.

    Rooms were adequate, but small. Mine had a tube TV and not a flat screen.

    Happy to see you and your family enjoyed your stay better than I.

  20. I have never been to San Antonio and it would be a great city to experience with my girlfriend to escape the Minnesota winter

  21. I would love to visit as it is a relaxing and fun location within 4 hours driving distance; I love visiting and exploring my local area!

  22. I’m up in the cold of new England and this would make a wonderful honeymoon! Getting married in oct!

  23. I want to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because I’ve never had a taste of authentic Texan BBQ!

  24. I would love to visit because there’s nothing better than a “free” vacation — especially when it’s a quick trip down I-35 from home!

  25. This would be a good excuse to visit the Hill Country and I have truly been wanting to take my mom for a visit.

  26. I want to visit for the rocking chairs, the golf cart, and especially the cave in the lobby, because they are all Little C-endorsed. Also the Alamo.

  27. I am getting married in August and would love nothing more than to take my wife to what looks to be a relaxing and wonderful experience!!

  28. I have been to their pool once when my brother was at a conference there and it was amazing! I would be an awesome get away!

  29. Would like to take my wife to visit her old pastor and his family, as he moved away from California and rarely gets to see him now.

  30. I haven’t been to San Antonio, and would love the opportunity to enjoy the city this fall with my wife and child. Thank you!

  31. I would like to go because I love the Hill Country and would love for my family to enjoy some Texas hospitality.

  32. I would love to take my wife there for a well deserved rest. She just got through a 30 hour labor with the delivery of our first baby yesterday July 4th. Yeah!!

    Would love to take her and baby on a well deserved little get-away sometime in the future.

  33. I want to win the 3 free nights because my wife is pregnant with our 2nd child. She could very much use three nights at this resort! – Along with the spa treatments of course!

  34. Why I want to stay at Hyatt in Hill Country:

    One of my favorite TV shows is “King of the Hill” and I just love Hank and Peggy Hill (from Arlen, Texas). Seriously though, the Texas “Hill Country” is a great area and the people are great and I would love to stay at the Hyatt there. If I win I just may have to sneak off to New Braunfels to visit my buddy Boomhauer and drink a beer or two with him, in the alley…

    I have frequented San Antonio in the past and it is a great city for ANY age or any family (with kids, newlyweds, golden years, etc.). A river runs through the middle of town and there are a BUNCH of great shops and restaurants. You will be lucky if you win, but I hope it’s me!!!!!!!!

  35. I’ve heard the riverwalk is something everyone has to do. My wife and I have never been to Texas and would love to have a chance to go and stay at a Hyatt to visit that area.

  36. I started reading your blog while my wife was pregnant and have learned a lot about traveling with a little one. He may or may not come along if I’m selected. Your earlier post about taking time to travel without children is something we could use after a few months of parenthood!

  37. Living in Hungary right now, when we come back to Texas for a visit, we start with relatives. We have enjoyed a getaway to this property once already and absolutely loved our time there. We would enjoy a similar getaway in the future.

  38. I want to ride my horse over there, eat some fried pickles, and fall asleep in the lazy river. Then get up and play horseshoes. Yee-hah!!!

  39. My family has never been to San Antonio. Our 2.5 yr old daughter would love the flight out there. And the hotel doesn’t look half bad πŸ™‚

  40. I need this vacay to happen because I’ve NEVER been able to participate in such a luxurious hotel/trip that Hyatt can provide!

  41. After teaching abroad for two years, we’re finally heading home to the States in a few months (and traveling home business class thanks to blogs like yours!)! We’d LOVE to hit up San Antonio while on our upcoming 6-week American road trip!

  42. We’ve always wanted to go to San Antonio; everyone we know who has been has raved about the town! This would be a great weekend getaway for me and my wife!

  43. I’ve never been to Texas and I’ve always wanted to; I have a toddler about Little C’s age and I’m dying to take him to a family-friendly resort, and heeelllllllo outdoor movie and carriage ride?! *fingers crossed*

  44. My wife’s a hard-working Michigan teacher, and our two toddlers would LOVE the Riverwalk (and Mom and Dad might dig it, too). We’d love to go because Texas is callin’ our name!

  45. Pur family would love to stay here for a few days. We hear great things about the resort and staff and we understand the lazy river is one of the best I’m the state of texas

  46. Have never been to this property and it would be a great excuse to Visit San Antonio and see some friends again

  47. My wife and I haven’t been able to get away on a vacation for some time now. This would be the perfect place!!

  48. I would love to use it to surprise my wife for our first anniversary next April!!! She has never been to Texas and its near the top of our list to visit.

  49. My wife and I live in Austin, and we have never gone down to San Antonio together. This looks like a great way to finally do it!

  50. I’m originally from San Antonio, now living in France. Haven’t been back in a good while; I have a cousin getting married in TX and to stay there while I’m back would be lovely!

  51. Like everyone else it would be great to get the experience, especially with two little ones under three. Regardless, thanks for putting together a site with great information to help people like me get to give their families the gift of travel. From your review it looks like whomever is the lucky winer will surely enjoy it!

  52. We would love to take our mildly autistic son to a resort like this, sounds likes he would love it. Dad could get a break with some golf, then mom could have her turn with a spa treatment!

  53. I want to visit Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because our 9 year wedding anniversary is coming up, and we have not yet been to Texas together.

  54. Would love to stay there for the club food and snacks…looks delicious! Also being around some of the best Mexican restaurants can’t hurt either…

  55. We have enjoyed San Antonio but haven’t been in a while. We would like to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country.

  56. I’ve never been to Texas and would love to check it out. I’ve heard good things about San Antonio. Also if you have any pull with Chase do you think they could open up the checking account offer in Nebraska? πŸ™‚
    Thanks Mommy Points awesome site!

  57. I would love to visit here on a “stay-cation”. It has been on my radar for awhile and we love the fact there is a Camp Hyatt for our son! It would be a great time for our little family and a break for the mommy and daddy!

  58. I’d like to visit this Hyatt because this is a part of Texas I never seem to get to.
    Also, if Little C likes it, how can I go wrong!

  59. I want to visit because it seems like a great place close to home to take my family on a mini vacation.

  60. It would be a nice getaway when I go visit my baby nephew next time in Houston. I’m sure he would enjoy it!

  61. We’ve already stayed at Lost Pines and it was a great family vacation. It would be neat to try out the other Hyatt resort in Texas!

  62. I want to win this so I can take my family again to http://www.schlitterbahn.com/nb/
    I took my son there years ago (the year the Spurs played the Pistons in the NBA Finals) and it was an amazing time. He has said he would love to return one day. It is VERY family friendly, you should visit if you have not already.

  63. It would be great to take a brief get away to Texas and it couldn’t get any better than staying at the Hyatt.

  64. I would like to visit the Hyatt Lost Pines since I have long wanted to take my family to the Hill Country.

  65. The review looks and sounds so great! I want to give my angel a good night’s rest, my beautiful wife. If I were to win I’d be able to do so and spend an amazing time with my wife in San Antonio, a place we’ve never been in a state we’ve never been.

    Thank you Mommy and Hyatt for the opportunity!

  66. My husband and I want to take his parents on vacation. This would help with the cost! We’ve also never been to Texas.

  67. I would love to visit this resort because from your review it sounds amazing, it’s close to New Braunfels and it would be a great mini vacation with the kids before the crazy school year begins and we are super busy with all of their activities!

  68. Vist family (in Austin) without too much visiting. πŸ™‚

    Also, the kids haven’t been to the riverwalk since they were 2 months old. And Seaworld !!!

  69. I want to visit the Hyatt San Antonio resort bc it would be great fun to take my sister and her kids who live in Dallas!

  70. I’ve never been and one of my old college roommates just moved down there. Great reason to see a new city and visit him!

  71. With the daughter in college and a mortgage, my wife and I don’t get to do much travelling for the simple enjoyment of it. We could really use a recharge.

  72. I would like to win so I can take my 80 year old mother to the resort. I have taken her to the Hill Country before and she loved it.

  79. My daughter tells detailed stories about when she lived in Texas and her ranch there, with friendly sharks in the swimming pool, and lots of other details of that nature. She, however, has never actually even been to Texas. Help me make her an honest little girl by giving us the Texas vacation.

  89. Would love to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa for so many reasons, let me count the ways. 1. Life is busy, busy in a inner city trauma hospital. 2. I work full-time and am in school full time pursuing my nursing degree.
    3. Have a good friend in Houston I haven’t seen in 5 years.
    A break from the daily grind would be awesome and refreshing.

  90. I have wanted to visit the resort and San Antonio for a while since we have really good friends in the area.

  91. I sure would like to go back to this wonderful resort with my family. We had a great time last time I was there for a conference!

  92. would love to visit Bush country just to relax with family and to reaffirm myself that it is not my state to live in. It is nice it working for your family

  93. Great post. I could use a vacation this year (and I’ve wanted to see the resort ever since your review when Little C ended up on the floor).

  94. We also have a toddler and I’m just wanting to plan a trip for his birthday somewhere family friendly and fun. I was thinking about the Hyatt Lost Pines resort but this one looks even better with its proximity to San Antonio. Thanks for sharing and look forward to the rest of your series!

  95. A trip to San Antonio and staying at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa would be amazing. Relaxing after 15hrs of summer school and working full time would make me a happy camper.

  96. I visited San Antonio for the first time with my then-fiancΓ© in April for work and really enjoyed it. We got married in May and would love to return as a married couple. πŸ™‚

  97. I want to visit because I’ve been to hot, nasty Dallas for work for months on end, and host, nasty Houston for work for months on end, and now I’d like to go to relaxing San Antonio for leisure!

  98. I would love to take my toddler on a fun trip before baby #2 arrives. I’ve been to San Antonio as a college student and a pregnant business traveler and would love to experience it with my kiddo and husband!

  99. Well because of you I have learned so much and would love have a Hyatt experience. I aways stayed at Hilton properties and always was just so happy they would have me. I did not realize that I could have expectations about my stay and how I needed to be treated. I am starting to notice the little things that Hilton is not doing and just came back yesterday from one of the worst experiences I have ever had and we left early and paid for a night we did even utilize just to get home!

  100. Would love to take my family to visit the river walk and other sights my two kiddos would enjoy including the resort!

  101. I would love to win the trip to the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because I’m a 911 Dispatcher and I would love to unwind there and experience some of their spa treatments. My line of work is very stressful and it’s not very often I get a chance to unwind. This would be an amazing trip. Hyatt ROCKS!!!

  102. I would love to visit because we went to this resort on our first wedding anniversary before our child was born. It has been 3 years and we would love a chance to revisit!

  103. I would love to get away from the crazy traffic and hot, humid summer days in Houston. The resort looks like a great place for a summer chill-out!

  104. Winning the three day package would be huge for me. My sister live in SA and just had a kid, we just had a kid, so this would be a fantastic family reunion!

  105. I have family in Austin, Texas. It would be wonderful to meet up with them at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa. My son has not been to Texsa since he was a toddler and is now in college. My daughter would love to see her childhood friend who moved back there when they were in kindergarten. They are both going to be juniors in high school in the fall. Everyone would enjoy the trip from Maryland.

  106. Having just moved to TX ( Houston!) my kids and I are dying to get out and explore our new state! The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa would be a great place to kick off our *let’s discover Texas* tour!

  107. My wife and I would love to take our family to the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort. Both of our parents live in SA and it would be great to visit them soon! San Antonio is a wonderful family town and a stay there would be incredible.

  108. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. I live in Houston and have 2 small boys (almost 1 and almost 3 years old) so this would be a great place for us to visit because it is within driving distance and looks like it would be a great first vacation for our young family

  109. I want to visit Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because my family has not yet been to Texas and this resort looks like a great place for a family vacation

  110. I would love to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa with my family. It looks like a great place for families, especially for families whose kids span several age groups (younger to teen). San Antonio is also on my list of “like to visit” places in the US. πŸ™‚

  111. I would like to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort because:
    1. Your terrific description made it sound like a great plac to stay.
    2. I have become a big Hyatt fan-I got wonderful treatment st a recent stay for a conference at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
    3. San Antonio is a lovely city to visit, with lots to see.

  112. Lost Pines was great for a toddler, mommy, daddy and grandma. It would be neat to try out the Hill Country Hyatt resort.

  113. Hyatt is indeed my favorite hotel brand. They go out of their way to have lots of fun activites planned at the resorts. Would love to come stay and relax with my family before getting the kids back to school. Thanks for the consideration!

  114. I have stayed at this Hyatt and it is really great. Regency club is awesome. Lot of fun for kids.

    Would love stay again.

    Thanks

  115. Glad to see a great place like this in the Hill Country! I demand all other hotel chains open great options like this in central Texas. πŸ˜‰

  116. It’s close to home and that is a requirement for us right now as husband is less than a year post transplant. Been a crazy year for our family and we could all use some R&R and pampering!!

  117. I’m originally from Texas and love the hill country! I would love to take my boyfriend here as he has never been to TX and it would be great to relax, dine, and show him what this great state has to offer πŸ™‚

  118. I have been throughout TX — Dallas, Austin — but never had the opportunity to visit San Antonio or the hill country. Northerner (Chicago) needing some good “Southern” hospitality!

  119. The resort looks beautiful. The pool would be an amazing retreat from this 90-100 degree weather of the past few weeks!

  120. Would love to take my mother to the beautiful resort after having to deal with the loss of my grandmother. She needs a much needed vacation!

  121. The hill country is what brought be back to Texas and the hill country will likely keep me here for quite a while longer. Being down in New Braunfels, this would be a wonderful “weekender” for our family to get away from the hustle and bustle of the “real” world.

  122. This would be a great destination for us to escape the cold North Dakota winter! We passed through San Antonio a few times (and that’s been several years ago now) but never had the time to stop and see any of the tourist attractions the city has to offer.

  123. I want to visit so we’ll have a great place to stay near SeaWorld that also has lots of kiddo activities right at the hotel!

  124. “When in Texas do as the Texans do”. I’d love to bring my family to see all that the beautiful U.S. has to offer. We’ve only begun to scratch the surface with Tennessee(home state) and Florida under the belts.

  125. I have wanted to visit San Antonio for awhile and have yet to make it. A few night free nights and a spending credit at this resort would be great.

  126. I have to admit, I have often wondered what the regency club was… Thank you for that info. I think I will look it into it when I win this 3 day trip! πŸ™‚ I would like to win so I could relax, not answer emails and get lost in the Spa! DREAMS can come true.

  127. I love to visit/want to visit the hyatt hill country and would recommend the hyatt hill country just as a resort close-ish to home that has amazing amenities for adults and kids!

  128. I soooo wish we could visit here. We love San Antonio! My little boy wants to be a marine biologist and would absolutely love Sea World. The two room suite would be perfect for our family. I’ll either have to cross my fingers for this contest or do so very serious saving!

  129. I love the country rustic feel of the hotel and the Hyatt name means quality and luxury. I would definitely love to enjoy a little getaway with my husband and two children.

  130. My husband and I are celebrating 16 years of marriage this fall and Hyatt Hill Country Resort looks perfect for our getaway!

  131. I have always wanted to stay at this Hyatt. After reading your very informative blog we will definetly make plans to stay and for three days!!! I would like to rent a cabana and also have the couples massage. Thank you for blogging on this resort.

  132. I would love to win this stay! I have 4 children ages 9 and under. I am a teacher in a very low income elementary school and my husband is a lineman for an electric company. Money is always tight and our children are always top priority so a trip like this is not financially possible without a chance of winning this prize! It would be a great family experience for us!!!!!

  133. I would LOVE to take my family to the Hyatt. Our summer has consisted of baseball only since my oldest is playing All-Stars. I feel bad that the other 2 kids or him haven’t had much FUN time this summer. This getaway would be perfect for all of us from the activites to just hanging out at the pools!!!

  134. We would love to Win!!! I have two boys and they would love to play golf with their dad!! I on the other hand would enjoy a day at the spa!!!

  135. I have stayed probably 10 – 12 times over the last 5 or 6 years. I would be hard pressed to pick just one thing that I liked. All of the amenities are, from golf to the Lazy River to watching movies on the lawn with the kids, “Top Notch”. If I had to pick one thing it would be the satisfaction of knowing that I provided my family with another great memory.

  136. Why do I want to win this vacation? Who wouldn’t? Sounds divine!! I would probably bounce between the spa and the lazy river! Ahhhhh!!!!!!!

  137. I want to visit the Hyatt Hill Country Resort to get away from the hustle and bustle of being a stay at home mom with two young children and not have to go grocery shopping, or answer the doorbell! It looks so serene.

  138. I would love to visit here to be able to spend some down time with my family verses being constantly on the go.

  139. How wonderful that you all had time to spend it together at this beautiful resort, enjoying each other and also the resort’s activities. Although I don’t have a family, it’s important for families to spend as much time together as possible, even if it means they can’t travel due to various reasons. The important thing is to be with each other. Life is short.

  140. My family has 2 little ones that we have adopted so a vacation is beyond due for our family. We r lucky to go to dinner or a movie. Heard soapy great things about this place but would love to experience first hand. We have our fingers and toes crossed X 4.

  141. My family went to the Hyatt Hill Country every summer from the time I was 3 until I was about 17, and things just got too busy. I would love to go back and enjoy the spa, lazy river, and just walking around the beautiful grounds again. Maybe play a round or two of golf with my dad!

  142. I would love to visit because we’ve been to the Lost Pines and love it, but we’ve never made it to the Hill Country one with our son!

  143. San Antonio has always been a favorite place of mine to escape to. This hotel seems very relaxing and just be able to unwind from everyday stress and there are a varity of options to do so.

  144. I have been wanting to stay at this resort for a while but it was always out of the budget! The tips on rewards and discounts are very helpful! I think my family would really enjoy visiting this resort. It seems to offer something for everyone!

  145. We went Easter weekend to the Hyatt and absolutely loved the resort. As a total indulgence I booked one of the cabanas. What a perfect way to enjoy the pools. The Sunshine Pool Staff were excellent and made sure all of our desires were met. Besides the cabana you are provided with two chaises, towels, flat screen tv, a safe to lock your valuables in, frig with waters and fruit and a charging station for electronics. Also there is a table and four chairs. The wait staff takes care of everything and there is a sign with your family name welcoming you. It was worth every penny.

  146. Your article was a thorough discussion of every experience possible at the sprawling resort with one exception. When my wife and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary there, Rhonda (my wife) experienced playing air hockey in the small arcade. The arcade is also where my lack of coordination was on full display on the foot pad dance video game. Unfortunately, we couldn’t manage to win the Kindle E-reader hanging in one of the other video games but we did manage to win some kind of consolation prize: a doofenschmirtz stuffed creature of some kind. Joy!

  147. I would love to visit this resort because we desperately need a vacation and this is the perfect place to go! It has everything we need- kids’ activities, awesome pool, spa…As a busy mom of two, this is just what our family needs!

  148. We stay at this hotel twice a year, in April and October. It would be nice to plan a trip here when it is summer and would use the pools more!

  149. I would love to have a few days at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort because this year we had a somewhat “working” vacation. I’d love to be able to just sit back, relax and sip on a strawberry smoothie by the pool. *sigh* Heaven!

  150. Thank you so much for the great review of the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa!! This looks like a wonderful place to stay as a family or as a couple. For me, I would love to have a trip for just my husband and me. I have been ill for almost a year and did not get to go anywhere for our 15 year anniversary in February. A few nights a way would be so great for us. Thanks again for the great information and photos. Certainly makes me want to make the trip even if I don’t win.
    Tammy

  151. This would do wonderfully for my 40th Birthday end of this month as i am already visiting san antonio at that time

  152. Since my husband and I have been married 5 years and two children later, we have been unable to go on a family vacation due to moving from Alabama back to Texas and then both having new jobs and of course having babies. We would love to be able to create some great family memories at this gorgeous resort.

  153. Our family had a mid week stay reserved here and we had to cancel due to our air conditioner needing to be replaced unexpectedly. We are a family of four and would be truly blessed to win this contest.

  154. Holidays are amazing at HCH. We have been there for Easter and just after Christmas. They really know how to make it special and include the whole family.

  155. I think my family would love the pool areas the most; however, looking at your pictures, I think the entire resort is beautiful. I can’t wait to go this fall! We’re really trying hard to budget a trip around Halloween.

  156. My husband has stated here for a business convention. I would live for our family to have the chance to visit together!!

  157. After readiang your blog, the Hyatt seems like a fantastic place to spend quality family time and that is exactly what we are looking for without going on a cruise (my husband hates cruises) Looks like there is something for everyone without ever leaving the hotel.

  158. I want to visit the resort and spa because my husband and I went to san antonio for our honeymoon. we were planning a trip for our one year. anniversary which was june 19th. the hyatt hill country spa and resort was a place we wanted to go to. we would love to go back to san antonio for our anniversary and stay at this resort.

  159. My husband and I are desperately in need of a long weekend away. We have been caring for my terminally ill father and could use a break. We have also never been to Texas except for airports.

  160. We have been going to this Hyatt for 12 years now, stayed through hurricanes, spent Thanksgivings and a couple New Year’s Eves there. Our little 2 year old has yet to experience the fun and would love an opportunity to share it with her! Great blog post do far! We always stay on the first floor, super fun!

  161. I would love to visit again because its so beautiful and to finally visit the wonderful Windflower Spa!

  162. We want to visit becausr we have heard endless amazing comments from friends…this is close enough to acces for a quick trip, but far enougj to feel like we are ”getting away” and our family needs to get away!!!

  163. I am a hardworking mom who’s turning 40 in August what a trip this would be for me and my Hubby to get away to celebrate! This place looks amazing, fun, and relaxing!

  164. We are looking for a great place to take our first official family vacation with our 16 month old twins and this sounds like the perfect place!

  165. I want to visit the resort to allow my husband and I to spend quality, fun time with our girls! The activities sound like we’ll all enjoy them.

  166. I went to college in central Texas, and haven’t been back to visit since. I’d love to get back to visit my old stomping grounds, and enjoy a beautiful resort that I could never have afforded on a college budget!

  167. We went to the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa last year for our family vacation and LOVED it. We would love to go back, in fact, my daughter just turned 13 last week and that is where she wanted to go for her birthday! Unfortunately, we were not able to afford it at such short notice. My father in law lives in a memory care facility in the area so when we drive the 7 hrs to come visit him, we usually stay a few days in a hotel. It would be so great if I could surprise my 3 kids with staying at the Resort again! We would love to make more family memories there!

  168. What a beautiful to relax and enjoy the family. I’m thinking it might be a good weekend get away for the hubby and I. However, I’m thinking the grandkids would love the lazy river as much as us.

  169. Looks like a wonderful place for a spa vacation. My work involves taking care of people physically and emotionally all day, so a chance to relax and be pampered sounds incredible. Wish me luck!

  170. I want to spend time at the resort because I love how happy my family is there and we can ALL use the relaxation and down time. We love this place!

  171. Going to San Antonio would give me the chance to visit an old friend and her family. She raves about the city and alwanys asks us to visit!

  172. I would love to float the lazy river with my sweet little girls and husband!! Would be a great way to spend time with my family!!

  173. I too love to visit Hyatt Hill Country Resort. I have had the honor of tagging along with my sister when she visits. The resort is definitely my own private dream oasis, and I hope to get to visit again soon!

  174. This past year has been rough for my 6 yer old daughter and I. My husband of 11 years and I divorced and we’ve moved to kerrville to relocate. A girl trip together would bean amazing way to start our new life.

  175. I’d love to try it out, it looks beautiful. I live here, so I never know where to recommend that people stay, so it be great to have a first hand perspective!

  176. Hello,
    I would love to be chosen for this because my husband and I never had a honey moon and we’ve had a rough journey. Our 22 yr anniversary is on Oct 13 n with my bday also being Oct 5 it would be even a greater blessing. We’ve only taken 1 trip yrs ago to Port Aranzas without our kids which their grandparents took care of. Now that they are older 21,17,16 it is a trip that you have no idea how much we need. The Wildflower Spa looks absolutely magnificent and it would be a first Spa visit for me now 40. Trully this would be a much needed blessing for us if we get chosen and we would make sure we would pass on to our friends and families what an awsome time we had at the magnificent Hyatt Hill Country Resort! Thanks for your time and consideration in this matter!!!! God Bless πŸ™‚

  177. Hello,
    Your description of this magnificent resort leaves my heart racing at the thought of actually getting a chance to visit…as I mentioned before the trip is a much needed trip for my husband and I. We never had a honey moon and this October 13th we will be celebrating not only our 22yr of marriage but my 41st bday on October 5th making this a dream come true and a real blessing!!!
    I would love the opportunity to visit my very first Spa ever…The Wildflower Spa looks magnificent. San Antonio has also been our families vacation city of choice for yrs due to its rich culture and beautiful scenery. Originaly I am from Puerto Rico but I’ve lived in Texas (Houston and surrounding areas…flat lands) Lol:) for the majority of my life…My sister moved to the Hill Country and from the moment I visited her I fell in love with this beautiful part of Texas! The rivers the mountains it all reminds me of my lil island with the exception if the cactus!!! Lol…but anyway this would absolutely be a much needed break for both my husband and I. We had a rough journey but it’d s journey that with God we’ve been able to withstand. I was bummed to know I wasn’t part of the winners in their sweeps stake but I am so happy and hopeful to get a second chance! Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

  178. This would be a perfect winter getaway for the kids. They would enjoy the pools, lazy river, Camp Hyatt and the s’mores at night.

  179. We (my family and I) have been looking at Hyatt Hill Country web site and found your review. We would love to stay at this resort and know that there would be plenty to do based on your review!

  180. Floating down the Lazy River after a workout and massage at the spa, (while my son’s in Camp Hyatt) is a single mom’s idea of BLISS.. then floating down again with him πŸ™‚

  181. I don’t want to win for myself, but would like to enter for my son and who is an Air Force fighter pilot and his wife. He has been stationed around the world and is often gone weekends. His wife could use some spa time, I’m sure.

  182. The Texas hill country is one of my favorite spots to visit in Texas. Just driving through the scenic roads and seeing nature in its full glory relaxes me. I’ve stayed at Hyatts before, but have never been to this resort: it looks amazing.

  183. I am taking my parents to San Antonio for their 60th birthdays and would love to surprise them with a trip into the Hill Country!

  184. My husband and I spent a weekend at the Hill Country Resort 15 years ago the weekend after we were married. It would be wonderful to go back.

  185. I want to visit, because with work and school my family truly needs some bonding time and this is a great place to do it!

  186. My youngest daughter just learned to swim and I would love for her to try out her new skills at the Hill Country Hyatt.

  187. Top ten reasons I would want to go to Hyatt Hill Country:

    10. It will be a nice change to stay at a Hyatt property instead of a place where they “leave the light on for u:”
    9. To float the river but with a PG rating unlike the boob festival on a Saturday at the Guadalupe river
    8. To receive the free golf tag
    7. To see how many towels you can check out at the pool before they charge you for additional resort fees
    6. To see “magic mike” on the lawn for movie night:)
    5. To try to catch up with the obama’s on the amount of vacations taken
    4. Nothing boosts a sagging approval rating with a teenager like a vacation!
    3. So that I don’t have to be subjected to another losing game by the Houston Astros
    2. Where else could I relax and read”fifty shades of grey”
    1. To win this contest so that I can surprise my family

  188. I would like to win this contest to enjoy a weekend away without going too far from home. We live just outside of Austin and haven’t ever visited this beautiful resort!

  189. Two years ago we left our home town of New Orleans to move to northwest Houston for my husband’s work. Our vacation of choice before that was to drive 3 hours to Perdido Key, Florida where we would rent a condo owned by a lovely couple from Louisiana. We loved this spot so much that we visited there at least 4 to 5 times per year. The condo is on a private stretch of sugar sand beach just next to a National Reserve which means that the beach was never crowded and always peaceful. While there, my husband ALWAYS commented, like clockwork, how “mellow” he feels there, and I know it is true by the visible changes in his face from angled and tight to round and smooth. It so far is the one place where my husband and I are most relaxed while wading in the warm waters or sunning on the pristine beach or snapping candid and loving photos of our kids enjoying the beauty of nature while building forts and castles in the sand for hours before filling their buckets to wash them away and begin again.
    That bit of heaven for us is now 9 hours away which is much too far for our quick jaunts to the coast. I have been looking for a spot here in Texas, not just a vacation spot, but our go-to relaxation spot to take in nature, spend time with the growing kids, and to watch my husband’s face melt into calmness.
    I would like to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because after reading your articles and viewing the photos, I think it may be our spot here in Texas. I hope that we are chosen so that we can soon find out. Thank you for posting such beautiful articles and working with Hyatt to share their property with other families.

  190. My mom wants to visit San Antonio so would probably give it to my parents. Or maybe I’ll take her and leave my dad at home!

  191. My family and I Love the Hyatt and would love to visit again. We made some wonderful memories last summer there. We are starting homeschooling this year, so this getaway would be perfect… as we are going down to 1 income to make this happen, it may be a while before we can afford it on our own.

  192. I would love to win a visit to the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and enjoy time in the pool and river with my husband and kids!

  193. I would love to visit the Hyatt Hill Counrty Resort because I know it’s an Amazing place for a family vacation! πŸ™‚

  194. I want to visit the resort for a relaxing spa treatment that I feel I so deserve after 9 months of this pregnancy that’s had me up and down the whole time. πŸ™‚ Couldn’t think of anything better than a massage while on a little trip with my hubby!!

  195. We have not vacationed much since choosing private school for our sons. This would be a great treat for all of us!!

  196. When my kids were younger, we were frequent visitors to this resort. In the last 6 years, we have been too busy with school and sports to find a convenient time to go. I appreciate the information on getting discounts for a stay.

  197. I commented on the 3rd posting first and realized my comment was quite longer than others! So I would love to be able to experience Hyatt resort and go back to Seaworld! Our family vacation to these places were not so great due to my some becoming very sick while we were there and the rain that occurred everyday of our trip. Thanks for the info! Wasn’t aware of the regency club.

  198. So I can relax and unwind as well as explore San Antonio with my significant other for our upcoming anniversary.

  199. I wouldn’t want to be you to decide who wins. There are so many great stories to choose from. From the look of this place it would make anyone happy to visit. I guess I am an out of the loop type of person because I am totally confused on all the “points conversation.” I still enjoyed reading the blog however.

  200. We have lived overseas and traveled the world with our two kids, but if you were to ask them what their favorite hotel was, I’m fairly certain they would say Hill Country Hyatt. The kids are grown now, and it’s been way to long since we’ve been there. Would love to take them back one more time, for old time’s sake.

  201. I just wanted to say that I just got wind of the contest and love this blog! When you are familiar with something, it is wonderful to read about it! My husband and I had our honeymoon in San Antonio nearly 17 years ago, but it was not until we had children, our 1st is now 8, that we came back – and our first trip was to the Hyatt Hill Country Resort. We have come here to the resort for 8 years, with the exception of one year we tried the West Ranch Resort and was not nearly as impressed. We have always upgraded to the suite that you stayed in, though this year was the first year we stayed in a regular room.. we steadily watched the resort grow with activities for our growing children. We never knew about the Regency Club until this last visit and cannot believe how wonderful it was! This was also the first year my husband has been employed by someone other than himself, due to the economy, so though we all had to share the regular room and make our regular stay of 5-6 days, down to 3 nights during Memorial Day weekend, we still had a fabulous time. We made it a point not to leave the resort, not even to see Shamu…and the new waterpark was not opened yet, so we were ok with that. We have watched our boys grow here and every year have been able to see them do something new at the resort. Our goal has been to put them at Camp Hyatt so that we can enjoy the Windflower Spa together but have not done that either. We look forward to many more years to come as we have now made this a tradition. We love the beach area for the ages of our children and lunch by the pool from Papa Ed’s and we do the breakfast at least 1-2 times during our stay. Can’t wait to come back again and would love a free stay to surprise our kids!

  202. I want to take my toddler places around Texas but fear the less kid-friendly places… this sounds awesome! We haven’t been able to take a family vacation yet and are really looking forward to something like this soon!

  203. We would most look forward to taking our kids to a part of the country we have never been and relaxing at a beautiful looking resort.

  204. Would love to visit this city that I have heard so much about. Thank you for the awesome review . Really enjoyed reading it. I love being able to refer to your blog for reccommendations for different hotels in various cities. I am frugal but I am pretty picky about my accommodations. This looks like a great place!

  205. Living in SF, my wife and I would like to enjoy the summer in a city where we can actually wear shorts and a t-shirt. San Antonio would fit the bill perfectly!

  206. I would definately enjoy going to the Botanical Gardens with my 4,7 and 8 year old. Also the Blue Star Art Complex would be a great place to go also. I like focusing on areas that are not always the most ‘touristy’ places because I want to get to know the people and nature of the area I visit. Since I have never been to Texas I would definately focus on finding small local mom and pop shops and restaurants. I want to immerse myself in the Texan lifestyle!

  207. We used to live in Austin when our children were young. I miss the trees and the occasional rain, as it never rains here! The Hyatt Hill Country resort looks amazing!

  208. Wow. This hotel has a cave in the lobby?! That fact alone almost sells it completely for me. But the Regency Club looks amazing too!

    My girlfriend and I would *love* to have an opportunity to travel and stay at the Hyatt Regency Country Resort. Going to enter this and cross my fingers. πŸ™‚

    Keep up the awesome posts though! I love following your blog!

  209. I want to visit the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because it sounds like the perfect (and much overdue) getaway that my boyfriend and I have been looking for.

  210. Quite frankly, it actually doesn’t look like my cup of tea… I’m on the complete opposite end of the spectrum as far as properties go wanting tropical beaches and exotic shops.

    Hopefully I’ll win though, just so that I can try new things. After all, isn’t that what travel is all about? πŸ™‚

  211. San Antonio has been calling for a while ( since when I made a quick visit in 2001). Would love the opportunity to enjoy the town

  212. I was just doing some research into San Antonio and in particular the RiverWalk…We’d love to see it live and in person!

  213. I have never been to Texas and this resort seems to encompass all that I think is Texas. I would love to be here and see for myself!

  214. I would like to win this prize because I have always wanted to visit San Antonio and this looks lime an excellent place to stay whe we finally check it out!

  215. As a hotel consultant based in Houston, I have had the good fortune to stay at many of the Texas based resorts for work. It would be nice to actually get to take the family with me for a change.

  216. Oh man, a trip to Texas would be much appreciated πŸ˜€ So warm and relaxing, a nice break from PA and UK weather πŸ˜€
    Cheers

  217. My wife and I haven’t had a vacation since our son was born 2 years ago. We’d love to explore San Antonio and take our son to Sea World!

  218. I would love to see this resort first-hand. Your description of the room and grounds was great. It makes me want to go there.

  219. I want to win so that my husband and I can take our little girl on a vacay! 2 room suite, black out curtains, family friendly…looks amazing! Thanks!

  220. I would love to treat the entire family to a stress free trip! My son is obsessed with hotels right now.

  221. I’m looking for a place to take our family that’s not Disney World or the beach. This looks like a great alternative!

  222. I would love to visit to give my wife a break. She’s been stressed with a new baby and could use some time off.

  223. I want to try this Hyatt property because I was planning to take a trip to San Antonio in the near future. San Antonio seems like a beautiful place from what I see and hear from family. I was originally planning to go in Sept but had to cancel. Was going to stay at the Westin La Cantera Resort, but these seems just as nice.

  224. I have always wanted to go to San Antonio and this looks like a wonderful place to spend a couple of days relaxing.

  225. I want to take my family to the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa because the suite you get with the diamond suite upgrade would work perfectly for us.

  226. Not a big fan of Hyatt hotels! Buy hey would give them a shot if it were free! How about throwing in airfare or four.

  227. My wife loves your blog as she feels your the only blogger who gets her! She got Diamond Status with a match this year via the Hilton free status, would be great to visit another Hyatt.

  228. I’ve heard only great things about the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa. There on Facebook page and when I go through the pictures of there hotel I daydream of being there. It looks awsome!

  229. Room looks great! we were just at the hilton sedona and it was underwhelming for a cat 7 hotel especially at the price.

  230. I would want to visit the Hyatt since I’ve actually never stayed at a Hyatt (still a newbie to miles!) and this one looks great!

  231. I’ll be in Houston and would love to do a girls trip to San Antonio with my mother and sisters. My mom is taking a week of work and my sisters are free the same week. The stars are aligned for us to go to San Antonio!

  232. My only other trip to SAT included a nighttime dinner cruise on the grand canal. I’d love to relive that!

  233. My DH and I are thinking about heading to Texas between Christmas and New Years. This looks like a great place.

  234. I’d love to visit this hotel with my boyfriend. Yesterday was our 5 year anniversary and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 5th year together than to relax at a nice hotel and take advantage of the wonderful amenities. It sounds like a great change from a stay-cation in S. Florida! Great contest! πŸ™‚

  235. The Hill Country is an under-appreciated gem in Texas. It’s time we get back there, and this Hyatt looks like the right home-base.

  236. This resort seems to provide exceptional value for top tier Hyatt members. I’m tempted to test out the waters and enjoy the cave! It seems like a great place for a family vacation.

  237. I’m a frequent Marriott and Hilton customer and has never stayed in Hyatt hotels but your nice post of this Hyatt resort tempt me to apply for a Hyatt credit card.. That would be a wonderful 5 days family vacation if I win this contest. Thank you!

  238. I am a middle school social studies teacher, from Oregon, and have always wanted to visit the Alamo, but haven’t had the chance. My wife and I will be traveling to Houston in the fall and if we have a free place like the Hyatt to stay near San Antonio we would definitely make the trip. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your blog. I have recently become addicted to collecting reward points and read your blog daily, along with a few of your favorites.
