Spread out across 550 acres
Daily resort fee
Situated in Texas Hill Country approximately 17 miles north of San Antonio, the rustic yet luxurious La Cantera Resort & Spa is beloved by guests for the sheer amount of space it occupies. Spread out across 550 acres, the resort boasts two 18-hole golf courses, several restaurants, five pools, a fitness center, tennis courts and a spa that spans 25,000 square feet. That list doesn't even include the kids' amenities, which range from a supervised Kids Club Camp to an on-site arcade. Aside from its bevy of amenities, La Cantera also wins praise for its accommodations, which range from 395 to 1,698 square feet. Rooms are outfitted with Keurig coffee makers, minifridges, bottled water, complimentary Wi-Fi access, and in select accommodations, balconies (a perk worth the inflated room rate, according to reviewers). Keep in mind: The hotel charges a daily $36 resort fee that covers resort activities, self-parking, bottled water and shuttle service within a 3-mile radius of the property, among other amenities.
