Summer at the J.W. Marriott Hill Country Resort

My birthday was almost 2 months ago and we finally got to do the plan we had originally set up for the day. We had planned to spend the day at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, but the storm rolled in and we had to postpone. We finally had the chance to go and the day was absolutely perfect! The sun was shining, the pool was cool and the husband and I were extremely relaxed. The best part was when the checkin girl said she loved my outfit, so naturally we had to do a mini shoot, haha! In all, the experience was great. The resort has a huge pool, an adult infinity pool overlooking the golf course, a sandy beach pool, a heated whirlpool, a lazy river you can float with the provided inner tubes and a full on waterpark grade slide. We opted to cool off and just relax, though. One thing's for sure, the food and drinks are highly overpriced and you can't bring anything from outside, but who's to say your insulated water thermos is actually water? Just saying... Aside from that, the staff is attentive and the relaxation is well worth it. A Day Pass grants you access to all the water activities and the game room for the kids, as well. I might opt for the Spa Pass next time. The Lantana Spa has amazing reviews so I might just check it out. This Summer I plan on enjoying myself and continue to discover what Texas has to offer. Rivers, lakes, hiking and, pool time and outdoor fun is what is all about!
