An upper-middle-range property in beautiful Texas Hill Country, the Hyatt Residence Club San Antonio, Wild Oak Ranch takes full advantage of its location with 39 acres of grounds dotted with nature trails, fire pits, a movie pavilion, and a slew of on-site amenities. While some features are located at the four-pearl sister property a short drive away, guests choose the Ranch to save some cash while still getting access to the other resort. On-site activities at this hotel, however, are still plentiful (a kids' camp, fitness classes, mini-golf) and families appreciate the large, apartment-style rooms.
A family-friendly property that stands out for both its high design and surprisingly reasonable rates
While its four-pearl sister property (with upscale dining and a spa, which Hyatt Residence Club San Antonio, Wild Oak Ranch guests have access to) is perhaps better suited for a romantic stay, this Hyatt is a great choice for families seeking an elegant getaway -- with reasonable rates considering the many on-site features, such as a large indoor/outdoor pool, kids' camp, workout classes, and movie nights. Located on 39 acres, this resort almost never feels crowded, and the well-maintained grounds -- complete with nature trails, gardens, and seating areas centered around fire pits -- make for quiet spots where families or even couples can feel back-to-nature. The hotel's overall design is reminiscent of an upscale country lodge; picture sweeping ceilings, antler-adorned lamps, and faux cowhide chairs in the lobby. Rooms are similarly earth-toned.
The Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch is situated amid 39 acres of gorgeous, quiet Texas Hill Country land. This gives it a tranquil vibe, but local attractions are nonetheless within easy reach. The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort, the hotel's sister property where the shared spa is located, is just a three-minute drive away (but is nearly 30 minutes walking), and SeaWorld San Antonio is less than 10 minutes by car. The Fiesta Texas theme park is about a 20-minute drive and San Antonio, and its famous River Walk, are also within 20 minutes. The San Antonio International Airport is about a 25-minute drive from the Oak Ranch property.
This lodge-like hotel has 156 studios and apartments (with one or two bedrooms). All are spacious, with elegant (not cheesy) Western-style decor; picture warm, earth tones throughout with dark wood accents, fresh plants, paintings of local scenery, comfy leather chairs, and beds with dark brown runners and tribal-inspired throw pillows. Balconies or patios, large flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi come standard.
While studios come with kitchenettes (microwaves, toasters, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers), apartments have fully-equipped kitchens as well as dining areas and separate living rooms with flat-screen TVs. Most come with washer/dryers, but not all, so be sure to double-check when booking.
Some features are located at the sister property, but most -- including tons of daily activities -- can be found right on the grounds.
Guests rarely leave the property during their stays. After all, activities are plentiful and offerings change daily. While most are kid- or family-oriented (movie nights with free popcorn, a kids' camp -- for a fee, outdoor volleyball, a playground, and a game room), some -- such as yoga, water aerobics, and wine tastings -- have adults in mind. There's also mini-golf, a small business center, a large indoor/outdoor pool with water slides, whirlpools, and a lazy river, and a fitness center with modern cardio machines and free weights. Guests have access to the spa at the sister property as well.
Options are a bit more limited as far as on-site dining. There's just a casual poolside restaurant that serves lunch and dinner (and breakfast during peak season) and a convenient store with snacks and wine. Several more restaurants are located at the sister resort, and there are also some tasty local spots within a short drive.
