JW Marriott San Antonio – Where Luxury Combines with Good Ol’ Family Fun


To celebrate the one-year anniversary of TravelMamas.com, one lucky family will win a vacation package to San Antonio, Texas at the world’s largest JW Marriott Resort! Because the point of a vacation is to relax and have fun, the two-night package at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa includes special goodies to pamper every member of the family. Approximate retail prize value is $1,000. Read on to learn how to enter!

Earlier this month my family spent a few days at this beautiful resort. All vacations hold a special place in my heart for the moments of togetherness and wonder that can only be felt through travel. However, some destinations stamp a bigger imprint on my heart. It is the memories garnered on these trips that lull me to sleep on restless nights. The world is big with many new places to explore so I seldom like to return somewhere I have already been. However, I am already dreaming of a return trip to San Antonio, and to this JW Marriott in particular.

Lantana Spa

Let’s start with something all moms deserve…a little relaxation at the spa! After a dip in the whirlpool, I received a Saving Face facial. This included a gentle enzyme peel and healing mask as well as an upper body massage and nourishing hand treatment. If you can’t decide between a facial and a massage, this is a good choice because it felt like both rolled into one heavenly treatment.

Next, I had a Restorative Organic Massage with a scalp massage, hot towel massage and foot treatment. While this allowed me to slip into that lovely state of spa-induced half-awake, half-comatose Zen; it felt more like a body treatment than a massage to me. With eight other massages to choose from, next time I think I’d opt for the Citrus and Sunflower Organic Massage, which combines essential oils with a traditional full body massage.

Rather than hurrying back right away, I took advantage of this rare bit of me-time by showering and readying at the spa. They had everything I might need right there from lotions, soaps, and mouthwash to disposable razors. I was a happy bowl of pudding by the time I left to rejoin my family!

The Lantana Spa suggests you arrive at least a half hour early to check-in and take advantage of the spa’s hot tub, sauna, and steam room. I suggest you go even earlier; how often do you get to relax and have some time to yourself, free of a kid pulling at your pants leg or complaining that their brother got the bigger half of the cookie?

TPC PGA-Tour Golf Course

I have only golfed once in my life but my husband, Phil, was thrilled to have a chance to golf at a TPC PGA-Tour golf course. He was given the choice of two courses, one of which was regarded as easier and therefore more appropriate for the non-professional. Phil is a pretty decent golfer so he chose the more difficult course.

Here’s what Travel Daddy Phil had to say, “Hold on to your golf pants…when they say the course is tough, they mean it! Greg Norman designed the course and it was definitely intended to challenge. The practice areas and course were in perfect condition and it was just gorgeous. I was supposed to play with a couple other guys but the impending rain kept them off the tee. Although I played by myself, I had a great time, and, I didn’t have to tell anyone what my score was!”

Range Riders Kids Camp

If you will be staying here during a busy time, like spring break or summer, be sure to sign up for Range Riders before you leave home so you can snag a spot in this delightful camp for kids.

Upon check-in at the hotel my daughter, Karissa, received a treasure map that led us to Range Riders. Following the map’s path was a wonderful way to get her excited for her adventure away from mom and dad!

During warm weather, kids are asked to bring a bathing suit and sunscreen for a splashing good time with the counselors and other campers at the kiddy pool. No need to worry about safety either since kid-sized life vests help keep children safe poolside.

I stopped by a couple of hours into Karissa’s Ranger Riders experience and she begged me to let her stay longer (which I happily obliged). She had a busy day, filled with lunch, crafts, and make-believe play. She had a lot to show for her efforts too. A photo of Karissa standing by the Range Riders’ life-size plastic bull was placed into a frame that she painted herself and decorated with stick-on jewels and puffy letters to spell-out her name. She also drew a stick-figure portrait of her family with special markers on a souvenir Range Riders t-shirt.

Due to my daughter’s age (we celebrated her fifth birthday at the resort), this was Karissa’s first experience at a hotel kids camp. Many resort kids’ camps start at the age of five, but this program allowed kids aged four and older who are potty-trained.

When I asked Karissa if she liked Range Riders, she said, “I loved it!” What did she think was the best part? “My teachers, Miss Perry and Miss Courtney!” I can’t think of a better endorsement than that.

River Bluff Water Experience

The best part of our stay at JW Marriott San Antonio was the time we spent together at the resort’s River Bluff Water Experience.

We could’ve spent all day just splashing in the little kids’ zero-entry pool, with its fountains, three small slides, but there were too many other watery diversions to enjoy!

My husband and I took turns climbing the Water Tower to zoom down the Acequia Tube Slides with our daughter in a double inner tube. There are two exhilarating options – one slide that is mostly open-air and one mostly-enclosed tube slide. Karissa didn’t want to brave the latter, so I went it alone (for research purposes, of course!).

Not only was the River Bluff Water Experience a whole lot of fun, but also it was beautiful. The 1,200-foot lazy river was lined with Cypress trees and walls made from natural rock. I almost felt as if I were floating down a real river through the Texas Hill Country!

For some mischievous fun, kids can spin and pump various mechanical doo-dads to spray other guests afloat on the river. This may have been my two-year-old son Leo’s favorite part! He giggled and stomped his feet as he watched in awe when his actions from above made the water shoot out below.

Restaurants and More at JW Marriott San Antonio

For dining, there were six restaurants plus room service to choose from. The fanciest was 18 Oaks, where I dined on a sublime steak. The most unique eatery was the High Velocity Sports Bar with its winding wall of television screens. For a quick breakfast or snack option, there was also a Starbucks onsite.

A favorite memory from this trip was listening to live country music echoing through the resort’s two-story lobby as my kids joyously danced about. The lobby contains a bar on the lower level with billiards plus checkers and chess tables inviting guests to linger in this expansive lounge.

A Truly Special Place

While San Antonio offered plenty to do outside the resort, the JW Marriott San Antonio was the kind of place you don’t want to leave. Maybe it was because it was a new resort, but the staff exuded a warmth and excitement that is rarely found. You could easily spend a whole week just enjoying the resort’s amenities and never get bored.

So what are you waiting for? Enter to win a family getaway at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country!

  1. I LOVE this giveaway. The Lantana Spa appeals to me, as going to a spa is something I would only do while on vacation, it’s a treat. The spa looks lovely.

    You have no idea, I have wanted to go to San Antonio for most of my life. Between the Riverwalk and the restaurants and all the sightseeing, I know it would be a fabulous and memorable trip. Hope you pick me!

    Carol P Dziuba I deserve to win a getaway to JW Marriott San Antonio because it is a destination I have so wanted to visit for so long. I’ll remember the Alamo….and the JW Marriott in San Antonio if I win!

  5. You had me at “spa”!

    I am on your distribution list (twice, actually)!

  7. Cori Shifrin says:

    I would love to experience the River Bluff Water Experience with my one-year-old, Ethan, because he loves the water! We have friends in San Antonio, who we haven’t see in years, and we would love to reunite. I also love the dueling piano bar, “Howlin’ at the Moon”, which is right on the water in San Antonio. I would also love the spa to relax with a deep tissue massage!

  8. WOW! First off, we have never stayed at a resort, and it sounds a-MAZ-ing! I would be in heaven at the spa, for sure! With three boys, you can only imagine how much I need that! :) My husband and boys are all golfers as well (I try), so the PGA golf course would be fantastic! And the water park looks like so much fun. We have a little bit of a span of ages and abilities, and it looks like there would be something for everyone there! I’ve always wanted to visit San Antonio; I’ve heard so many great things about the city! This is an amazing contest; thanks so much for the chance to win!

    All the things included in this vacation are things we dream about.

    With being in college for the last 6 years we have been on a real budget.

    A spa treatment for me is something I’ve asked for on every birthday and holiday, but when it comes down to it we just can’t quite afford it. I wouldn’t even know how to act!

    My husband hears his buddies talk about golfing, and I worked for a resort golf course at one time so I know how much fun it can be, but still he’s never been able to go. We just say to ourselves, “After college…”

    Of course the kids would just love the pool, the activities, and the getaway, but this would be a great experience for all of us!
    What a treat for all our hard work!!!

    Please chose us to go!!!

  16. Kim Holtel says:

    Please, spa, take me away! If only for 50 minutes . . .

  17. I need the spa treatment!!! And the JW Marriott’s Range Riders Kids Club sounds incredible!! I think my kid would wanna spend more than 4 hours there!! Looks like the perfect spot for families!!

  18. I’m on the email/newsletter distribution list!! :)

  19. I would like to use the Lantana Spa. There is nothing like a really good massage to make me feel pampered an rejuvenated.

  20. Wow what a great package!! On a selfish side I would love to be able to go to the Lantana Spa and receive the massage and facial. However,it would be a great get-away for our whole family. The River Bluff Water Park would be a great place for my husband and I to re-connect and bond more and enjoy more time with our kids and de-stress from me working full-time and my husband job searching. Plus my kids love to swim and a break from the snow and cold would be great!

    The JW Marriott San Antonio looks like a great place to stay!

  21. I am on the e-mail list!

  22. I think as an entire family we would most like the River Bluff Water Experience. But for me, personally, I would love some time at the spa. I really would love to win this! We have inlaws in San Antonio so we could have a vacation and see family at the same time!

  23. I follow Travel Mamas on Twitter and tweeted about your giveaway.

  24. I follow you on Facebook and wrote why I wanted to win on your page.

  25. I now subscribe to your newsletter.

  26. I would live to check out the pool! Sounds like a great way to cool off in this Texas heat.

  27. I’m following you on Twitter and I tweeter the giveaway, but I don’t know how to link to a specific tweet! I’m @wandering_off

  28. I have been to the JW, and it is fantastic! So I’ll leave it for someone else to win:)

    Also, Leo is so cute! I just want to squeeze him.

  29. I would love to try the Resort’s Lantana Spa for a relaxing massage

  32. Newsletter Subscriber too!

  33. Caitlin G says:

    Iam on the email list as well. I have to say that pretty much EVERYTHING about the JW Mariott San Antonio looks amazing! MY 5 year old would FREAK over the River Bluff Water Experience, and i would freak for a massage..and a cocktail at High Velocity Sports Bar! What a gorgeous place! My sister lives in San Antonio, she’s pregnant and a little hormonal. A visit from her big sister and God-daughter sure would cheer her up! Just sayin….:)

  34. Roblyn Honeysucker says:

    The River Bluff Water Experience with the zero-entry kiddie pool and lazy river sounds fantastic for my 2 young children. I would feel comfortable letting them play in this area for hours.

  35. the spa! that caught my attention first thing. but the river bluff water experience area looks amazing – my kids would LOVE that! i’m also on your email list.

  36. shannon Baas says:

    the spa as I need to relax.

  37. Elizabeth N. says:

    Definitely the Lantana Spa for me! It sounds amazing – I mean, can a spa really be bad? But it would be a dream come true to spend some time there! We’ve never been to San Antonio, so that would be a great vacation for all!

  38. Sandra P. says:

    I am on the distribution list. The Lantana Spa sounds just wonderful!

  39. Andrea D says:

    Oh the spa! I have been to San Antonio only once and it was fun and beautiful. My hubby wasn’t with me on the trip and would love to bring him there!
    Thanks for the chance :)

  40. Leslie Price says:

    I *need* to experience the spa! I love San Antonio and would need very little encouragement to go back! I could spend all day just wandering along the riverwalk.

  41. I would love the opportunity to go to San Antonio. I’ve heard of this resort and have always wanted to go. The resort and the wonderful amenities sound great. I had no idea it was so nice!!!

  42. Jennifer says:

    We would love the river experience. My kids are fish out of water. They just love to swim.

  48. Ok, where to start?! First, it looks to be a beautiful setting. Throw in the spa and the infinity pool, and I’m in heaven! I want to go just for the scalp massage. The Range Riders camp seems like a lot of fun for the little ones. I might enjoy it more than the kids, though :-)

  49. This family trip sounds wonderful. I’d love to get a spa treatment. I’d love to take my husband golfing (he’s a teacher). My kids (1 & 2 years) love water parks already! I’m enjoying this e-newsletter subscription.

  50. I want to win the trip to San Antonio because we need a get away! We went to San Antonio in 2008 and absolutely loved it!!!

  51. I think the part we would love the most is River Bluff Water Experience. My daughter and I could spend all day there. Then again I could use some time at the spa, relaxing and being pampered.

  52. Frances Carty says:

    I would like the Spa experience because I am a single glam girl.

  53. Stevie M. says:

    I would most look forward to the Lantana Spa, because I cater to other all the time and it would be nice for once to be pamper.

  54. Kevin McCarthy says:

    What a combination! Marriott and Spa!

  55. I would love to try the CUSTOM PURIFYING FACIAL in the Lantana Spa. Thanks!

  56. I’m a fan on Facebook. Simone T. Thanks!

    I want to win the trip to San Antonio because we can drive there and it would be nice to have a vaca that doesn’t involve a trip to visit family.

  57. I would absolutely indulge in the spa treatment, and golf outing. I am not a major golfer, but my husband enjoys it, so some quality time alone enjoying a hobby of his would be much appreciated! I love the San Antonio area, and have visited there myself before dear husband, and kids.. I would love to be able to share it with my family!

  58. I would want to win the trip to San Antonio to be able to share the wonderful culture and landscape with my family. I have been to SA before I had a family, and have always talked about going back WITH family.. What a perfect opportunity!! :)

  59. I am on the e-mail newsletter distribution list! :)

  68. I want to just relax in the Lantana Spa. That would be heavenly!

  71. I really want to do the River Bluff Water Experience because it looks so fun for the whole family! I love playing in the water right along side of the kids and I know we would all love this.

  72. I want to win the luxury trip to San Antonio, because I want to sip on a cup of sunrise, spread my arms in morning air and hug Springtime flowers with my daughter Sunshine.

  73. ohhhh ! I would love to go to the Lantana Spa. I have never treated myself to a spa day and I could really use one. The spa there sounds so nice and relaxing

    Depending on the time of year (temperature in SA), what I would like best would be the golf course. If it’s too hot, I’d prefer the water park.

  77. Heather McDonough says:

    I’d love to check out the spa. I haven’t been to one in so long and I’d really like to just relax.

  78. That lazy river has been calling my name since I first heard about the JW opening in San Antonio. My husband and I were married at a JW Marriott resort 6 years ago next month. What a terrific anniversary present this would be for all of us (there are 5 of us now!!)

  79. You can find my tweet here

  80. The spa sounds wonderful.

    I tweeted your contest too. Thanks

  81. I would LOVE to have an afternoon in the spa… Sublime. Downside… Caelan, age 3, is potty trained and used to spending time in kids clubs. It wouldn’t seem fair to let her sister go and make her stay behind.

    I kind of feel guilty entering this as we will be there in September, but if I win we can have Doug’s family join us for a couple of days (though I will take the spa treatment for myself).

  82. And tweet… http://twitter.com/iatraveler/status/11005480555

    I already follow you. :)

  83. Do I “deserve” the trip? Probably not. But if I win I can invite someof Doug’s family to join us while we’re there- we haven’t seen them in over 2 years, so it would be nice to get together. Besides… then they would OWE ME! Bawah-ha-ha!

  84. And, finally, I am already on your email list!

  85. I would most like to experience the River Bluff Water Experience. My son took swimming lessons last year and will again this year. He loves the water and water slides. The River Bluff Water Experience looks like it would be amazing to play in the kids’ pool with my son while letting my wife relax in the sun!

  86. I would definitely love this trip for my family. Looking at the pictures of the JW resort…what 2 year old would not have fun here!! And of course, I could really use a day at the spa. This working mom definitely needs a vacation!!

  87. Cheyanna Jaffke says:

    I would like to try the spa experience.

  88. My entire family would love this place! But of course I’d spend most of my time at the spa – the Saving Face facial sounds great – I love it when a facial also includes massage!
    I also follow you on Twitter and tweeted the contest: See @macaronikidnyc.com.

    Spa Treatment at the Resort’s Lantana Spa is what I would love. I know my boys would love the JW Marriott’s Range Riders Kids Club.

  91. Spa, baby! I’m all about being rubbed. Then Mama can return to the family feeling rejuvenated & refreshed.

  92. I would LOVE to go to the Lantana Spa. Awesome!

  93. Ok. If it’s my choice, it’s the spa.. But if we go with kids, I know we will probably spend more time in the lazy river. :)

  94. I’m your fan on FB now. :)

  95. We got engaged in SA (Alamo Bowl…tres’ romantic!) So would love to take our 1 year old and 2 year old back to see where it all started. They are water bugs so would love the River Bluff Water Experience. Anywhere warmer than the Midwest would be fabulous!

  96. I’d love to head to the spa!
    …without my 5 year old to worry about.

  99. The Lantana Spa because I need a spa vacation. I did some more research and this is what else I learned. Inspired by this rich past, the Spa will draw upon San Antonio’s history to create simple and timeless treatments which will leave guests feeling rooted in the folklore and romance of the Curandero’s power. These treatments will aid in healing both the body and mind so that a sense of place and time is achieved. Guests will be embraced by the bountiful healing culture that has surrounded the Texas Hill Country for centuries

    The Water Tower slide sounds great! My kids love the water and fast slides are right up our alley when it comes to having a great time. We welcome the water wedges.

  108. Oh boy, I’m drooling over the spa!! I could sure use a massage or facial or pedi…or all 3!! Hubby will drool over the golf course, which is his favorite warm weather past time. And our 2 year old will love the water. This sounds like the perfect vacay spot for our family. I lived in San Antonio for a year in high school, and i absolutely love it – I love to go back and visit!

  109. I would love to experience the Spa Treatment at the Resort’s Lantana Spa. I get so tense at work and have so much to do. It would be nice to just relax for a little while.

    Wow the water entertainment and location are fantastic

  115. Definitely the Lantana spa. I’d probably get more than one spa treatment while I’m there. I’d get the citrus blossom facial and the texas sunset body wrap along with a mani/pedi.

  116. So. Honestly? We have yet to be on a vacation without his family or my family in attendance. So I’m all about the hotel featuring JUST.OUR.FAMILY. However, beyond that, I will never turn down a spa treatment :)

    My favorite part would be the SPAAAA! What woman wouldn’t want that?

  118. I would love to experience that spa treatment!! I hardly ever pamper myself like that so it would be such a treat!

  119. I’d like to experience the 1200 lazy river!

  120. THis would be so perfect, we need a vacation! San Antonio would be perfect because we can drive there and my son is old enough that he could enjoy the kids camp and even my 18-month-old would enjoy the water fun. Thanks for the chance!

  121. The spa – definately! I work hard and really could use a pampering to relieve stress.

  122. The spa!!!! for sure

  123. I’d like to be on your newsletter mailing list. Thanks

  124. My husband is an avid golfer and I would love to for him to be able to play the TPC course. This would be such a great gift to give him. He really deserves it this year. Not too mention our kids would love the water fun! We hope to see your resort soon.

  125. Joined your distribution list….this is a great site. Thanks!

  126. I would use the pool and spa for sure !

  127. The Lantana spa because being pampered is such a treat, and rare with 3 children!

  128. Lisa Nevils says:

    I would love for my mom and I to enjoy a spa experience. We both love to travel and being from California, we have never been to San Antonio, Texas. Our bags are packed !

  129. LON E. LIGHT says:

    My wife’s father had a Post Office convention in SA; a number of yrs ago and really enjoyed his visit; he passed away many yrs ago; but my wife really wanted to visit SA; especially with All the amenities that you offer for this contest.

    I would like to try out that Golf Course..it looks very Nice.

  130. Anita Rittenhouse says:

    My sister and I, both Mothers have always had a secret desire of visiting San Antonio but could never find the time nor money while we were raising our children. Now in the twilight of our lives, the relaxing atmosphere of the resort and, especially, the Spa and the “Resorative, Organic Massage” sound WONDERFUL! Our motto: It’s never too late!

  131. Relaxing by the pool is at the top of my list of things to do at the resort. Having six restaurants to choose from is a definite plus!

  132. Susan Goff says:

    As a grandma with my only grandson in Texas, I would love to take the family here. He would love the moving the pump and playing in the water. I would love to watch him while his mother can relax at the spa. It would be great!

  133. sandy craig says:

    My sports crazy husband would love the High Velocity Sports Bar. I would always know where to find him. We would love to experience that.

  134. Allen Bourgoyne says:

    My work works very hard being both a stay-at-home mom with our 4 year old and running her own business, the Lantana spa would be great for her, she deserves some papering.

    Just signed up for your newsletter, my wife was born in Texas, I lived there for 8 years, good to get updates!

  135. Barbara George says:

    My sister lives in Houston, and I in CA. She has lost her job and may lose her home. She really could use some R & R – I know a break from her surroundings would do her a world of good. The spa treatment, not to mention the change in the environment, would be most beneficial to her at this time.
    It would be great to surprise her with this. (I am entering JW Marriott San Antonio give away)….I hope this is the right way to do this. Thanks!

  136. Janett S McCoy aka...Jannn says:

    What a wonderfully cool looking place for me to take my 2 grand girls to have some grandma time!!!!
    I have only 2 grand kids my Valencia age 14 1/2 & my Lyric age 3, so I am always looking for ways to have quality time and showing them not only my love but what else is out their in this big world!
    I already know Lyric will want to spend all her time in the water as she is part…”DUCK”…and my Valencia would so enjoy having a spa treatment & shopping in the town shops!
    Something for everyone….granny’s love, travel, spa, shopping!! all we need for a wonderful time in such a awesome city and awesome Hotel-Spa!!!!!!!!!!!1

  137. MARGE HUDOCK says:

    IF I WON I WOULD SPEND TIME AT THE SPA….BEFORE AND AFTER SOME TREATMENTS. THE PEACEFULNESS JUST SOUNDS LIKE WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF. AND THE TRICKLE-DOWN EFFECT ON MY FAMILY WOULD BE WONDERFUL!

  138. Joy Rynearson says:

    I would love to have the spa treatment! Life around here has been more than hectic (downright grueling, I would say). I was a “spa virgin” until a month ago and it certainly helped me get back on track.

  139. Following on Twitter and tweeted now

  140. While I know that I could use (and love) the spa, my husband would be so estatic to have a mini golf vacation. I would contemplate joining him, even thought the last time I golfed was 4 years ago. Our golf courses are just opening now and he is itching to play, I’d love to surprise him with this.

  141. Already a fan on facebook, just commented: I would love to surprise my hubby with a mini golf getaway, while the kids and I enjoy the rest of the resort.

  143. LINDA BECERRA says:

    MARRIOTT RESORTS ARE THE WAY TO GO THE BEST!! WE HAVEN’T BEEN TO SAN ANTONIO IN TWO YEARS. I AM HOPING FOR A TRIP THIS YEAR!! PLAN TO TAKE MY PARENTS WHO ARE IN THEIR 70’S AND HAVEN’T BEEN THEIR YET. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT SURPRISE FOR THEM! WE HAVE BEEN TO HILL COUNTRY, FREDICKSBURG AND GRUENE WHAT A BLAST SO MUCH HISTORY! WE WANT TO GO BACK WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY!

  144. Steve Scott says:

    Waterpark because it would make my two boys so happy.

  145. I would absolutely love to soak in their amazing, winding pool. Utter relaxation to be sure. Also, my hubby has a pass to fly free anywhere in the continental U.S., and San Antonio is one place I’ve always wanted to go!

  146. Lori Bogisich says:

    This resort sounds like heaven. I would most enjoy the spa. I have had an hour back massage once at a chiropractor’s office. I have never been to a spa. I have been in hot tubs at friend’s houses and my previous gym, but I have never had a facial, scalp massage or a massage with scents and/or oils. So I think I would like that best, but the pool looks really nice and that is one of my favorite things to do lie by the pool (when I can find a pool to use) and read a book, when it gets to hot, jump in do a couple of laps then get out and read some more, with no interruptions. It is amazing what will make a mom feel like a million dollars.

  147. Debra Espejo says:

    As the mom of 3 kids, this would be a perfect place for my entire family to enjoy. While I am being pampered in the luxurious Lantana Spa, my kids could have their own entertainment at the Range Riders Kids Camp. As a family outing where we could all have a great time together, we could all enjoy the River Bluff water experience!

  148. elsa ronquillo says:

    i look forward to going to san antonio and experience the allure and beauty of texas. had a great spa experience @ Marriott Newport Beach Villa and I want to have a good deep-tissue massage w/ my husband. Marriott has yet to disappoint. . .

  149. Kim Lloyd says:

    My daughter is getting ready to go away to college in the fall. A vacation with all of us together as a family would be exactly what we’d love to do before she leaves. We’d especially enjoy the River Bluff Water Experience. Thank you for this opportunity to have a vacation together as a family.

  150. Janice Gydesen says:

    My husband and I have been to San Antonio once and loved it. We also stay at Marriott when we visit grandchildren in Idaho. We have been busy helping with grandchildren and would love a vacation. We have never been to a spa. The Lantana Spa sounds wonderful and just what would rejuvenate us to come back home and help. Thank you for this opportunity to try.

  151. Marjorie Clark says:

    I would love to be pampered at the Lantana Spa. My grandchildren and I would also enjoy the water park area. I love the Hill Country, I inherited farmland in Comfort, Texas (my grandfather built many of the buildings in Comfort) which is only a 45 minute drive. I have been trying to rennovate a 1911 farmhouse and a weekend at the spa after all the hard work would really relax and rejuvinate my spirits. The countryside is beaufiful and I am looking forward to retiring in Comfort…:)

  152. The best thing i am looking forward to is the lantana spa. and my beautiful kids valerie and vanessa would love the water park

  153. sandra smith says:

    I absolutely LOVE Texas…and thru research I discovered my grandfather was a cowbow in there long ago…maybe that explains it. I’ve had nothitng but great experiences here and would absolutely love to spend time at the resort, get away from the rush of CAlifornia, and experience some time in the wonderful spa, a facial, full body massage, all of the above. The pool overlooking the golf course looks magnificient – who could resist. This is a place that must be explored.

  154. Christi Coles says:

    I would look forward to sleeping in and then relaxing at the infinity pool. I am 4 months pregnant and in the process of buying a house, with my fiance traveling for work I am left to get everything done, I am utterly exhasted. My daughter would love the pools and waterpark and I would love an hour or two at the spa.

  155. The Lantana Spa seems to be the hot spot. The much needed spot for some good ole’ mommy-time. The kids….Oh yes, the kids. LOL. They would be at either the water park or the Range Riders Kids Camp. ALL DAY. My King would be playing golf for sure!
    This is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    Sassily Yours…

  156. I would love a spa treatment! We have lost 5 relatives since Nov ’08 including my mother/best friend. We have not
    had a vacation in 2+ years. My son is graduating from college and loves to travel to new places. This would be a
    wonderful reward for all of his hard work. My husband is a
    golfer and would head to the golf course. It would be a joy to have some family fun time. We love Marriott.

  157. There’s no contest – the Citrus and Sunflower Organic Massage is what I would most enjoy. Wait, any treatment at the Lantana Spa would be heavenly; being able to spend some “me” time without hearing “Hey Mom” would be a real vacation.

  158. I receive the Travel Mama’s e-newsletter and love it.

  159. My husband and I have always wanted to visit San Antonio. Now that we live within driving distance, a vacation to Marriott would be perfect. We have a son who would love the Range Rider Kids Club. I can just imagine the fun he would have while we enjoyed the Lantana Spa – guilt-free!

  160. I would love to experience the Lantana Spa. Like most women, I am in desperate need of utter relaxation and pampering. I don’t get to treat myself to anything, so this would be fabulous!

  161. There’s not anything I wouldn’t want to try. Spa for mom, golf for dad and waterpark for kids…Awesome!

  162. I tweeted: http://twitter.com/karonwarren
    Did you?

  163. The spa! As a new mom carrying around a 20 pound 6 month old, I could really use a massage!

  164. You’d find me at the Lantana Spa. San Antonio is one of my favorite U.S. cities to visit.

  165. Enter to win 2-night family stay at JW Marriott @travelmamas: http://bit.ly/9rYlN8

  166. Either the spa or the winding pool…sounds so relaxing. The kids would love the waterpark.

  167. The Spa since I need some relaxation

  168. i think the whole trip would be wonderful since it would mean we be getting away as a family and leaving our everyday lives behind if only for a few days. we have to connect now since time flies by so quickly

  179. Paramjit Gill says:

    The spa treatment sounds like heaven to me. It is something of a luxury item for me and cannot afford one very often.

  180. My husband and I have been laid off twice in the last year and because of finances we have not been able to take our daughter on any getaways or vacations. She has never asked or complained why we haven’t and we would really like to do something special for her. She loves water and slides.

    Much gratitude,

    Trish

  181. Molomatic says:

  191. Wow – what an awesome resort!

    I think I’d most love to spend a lot of time with my whole family at the River Bluff Water Experience – we definitely struggle for places to have fun together and JW Marriot’s water park sounds like a perfect solution!

  192. Copy of my FB fan page comment:

    Anjanette Porter Morton: I think my family deserves a weekend away at the amazing JW Marriott Resort in San Antonio to give my boys a chance to spend some quality time with their dad who works away from home 4 days a week. I’d love some quality time with him, too! ;)

  193. Last comment! I’m now officially a Travel Mama…looking forward to the newsletters!

  194. I would just love that pool!

  195. steven lewis says:

    River Bluff Water Experience, I just love being in the water!

  196. I would love to experience the spa treatments….especially the restorative organic massage.

  197. I was already a twitter follower. I tweeted about your giveaway!

  198. The golf, and of course the pool for the wife and kids. But, I was saying something about golf…oh yeah, the pool. Oh okay, everything. Ahhhhh

  199. @1CouplesKitchen – we retweeted the contest!

  200. Most excited about Lantana Spa – the organic restorative massage seems divine! River Bluff Water Park looks like a ton of fun as well.

  201. I’d be all about the spa. Relaxation and San Antonio fun, what more can a gal want?

  202. Ahhhhhhhhh, the massage is top of my list! And the blue sky, surrounding fresh air…

  203. Nicole Scott says:

    the spa and deluxe room

  204. I am excited about the lazy river and other fun water features – just add a pool and my stepson can be entertained for the entire day!

  205. I would love to experience the 1200 ft. lazy river. Now that is what I call relaxing!Hope I win:)

  206. I would love a spa treatment, because I deserve it!

  207. Simone Morrow says:

    I’m a musician, so the live country music is a must. Also, the Lantana spa sounds great, especially the facial, since I’ve never had one, and what’s a vacation without water?? Can I kayak down the river?

  208. Tom Tiencken says:

    The winding wall of television screens for the ultimate in sports viewing at High Velocity

  209. I’d definitely want to try the spa. I’ve heard good reviews of the spa elsewhere as well, and it is definitely my idea of relaxing.

  210. The MASSAGE! I am in great need of a little Spa visit! Hip Hip HORRAY!

  211. Want to with the JW Marriot Giveaway because we haven’t been on a trip in FOREVER! We absolutely need one. And with this economy it is tough! Glad you can help!

  212. Sherrelyn says:

    I would LOVE to visit San Antonio and take my husband and son along to visit a piece of our family history – The Alamo!! – as we are related to SAM HOUSTON and they have never been. The fact that is a JW Resort is like a dream come true. Pick me! PICK ME!

  213. OMG, I would love to experience the Spirit of the Curanderos Energy Treatment massage!!! I went to the JW Marriot website and they have 17 pages of services available at the Lantana Spa, including yoga, steam room, aromatherapy, you name it. It sounds like an incredible experience. What a great girlfriends getaway destination!

  214. What is a spa? Yes, I’ve never been to a spa!! Could you take me there? I’d love to experience the “good life” at the JW Marriott in San Antonio!!!

  215. Hello,
    A friend of mine sent this link to me because she thought I could use some R&R. I am a single mom of a very active involved 12 year old. She is the highlight of every day…but things get very hectic as I work full time and try to keep up with her schedule. The Lantana Spa sounds like heaven to me. It would be so indulgent…something that I very rarely every give myself. The idea of a massage that would take me into a world away from the every day commitments would be such a guilty pleasure. Half awake, half comatose…now that is a relaxing place that I can only dream about! The beauty of the surrounding landscape would certainly be a tremendous stress release that would rejuvenate the sole.

  216. Probably the spa treatment is best!

  217. Jennifer R says:

    This would be a great trip for my family…. fun in the lazy river, spa treatments (I have never had one), great dining and room accommodations… plus we have never been to San Antonio.

  218. Would love to explore Sea World and the Riverwalk. The windng river pool area would be fun too.

  219. Marsha May says:

    SPA! SPA! did you say facial and massage….YESSSSSSSSSSSS..can’t remember the last one.

  220. Kim Williams says:

    I would LOVE to experience the Infinity pool! I love Infinity pools!

  221. Kerrie G says:

  225. I can’t wait to see the incredible water tower! My son would love it and so would I! My sister and I would love to experience a spa treatment as well, while my husband will play golf. We are planning a trip to Texas in July.

  226. Kathleen says:

    It all sounds so wonderful, and I would love to sxperience the Spa and the River Bluff Water experience with my kids! But what I would most like is not only to be able to go away with my family, but especially to see my husband get a chance to play golf on the TPC PGA Golf Course. I work all day, and my husband stays home with my two boys (1 1/2 and 3 1/2) so since we are on one salary and trying to keep our heads above water we have not had vacations in years and my husband never spends money to golf because of the money involved. Even when I tell him to take a break and go with his brother, he will stay home to spend time with me and the kids instead. So to get him out there and to be able to go away as a family would be awesome.

  227. Water Park!!!!!!!!! My three boys would love it :)

  228. Dreaming of leaving the kids at the Range Riders Kids camp and reading a book or going to the spa!

  229. Jennifer Eng says:

    I would most appreciate the River Bluff Water Experience. My little guy is such a fish and we don’t have a lot of places nearby home where we can take him to swim and play in the water, especially during the winter, and especially for little ones! We soak up every opportunity to spend time in the water (pun fully intended!) We have family in San Antonio, so a trip to this place would be perfect!

  230. Jennifer Eng says:

    Became a fan on Facebook and posted on your fan page! I want to get away to the JW Marriot San Antonio!!!

    Where do I begin, there is so much we would like to experience. But since we have been having cold weather, I think being to enjoy the River Bluff Water Experience and having my son gain some more experience in the pool to reinforce what he is learning in swim lessons.

  256. I like the idea of River Bluff Water Experience because swimming and spending time in the water is a good way for our family to bond :)

    I am a fan of Travelmamas on Facebook

  287. Kids Camp! My Special Needs daughter has been medically housebound every winter for 5 years and we are done with our last winter this May so I cannot wait to get out there with the kids! DH and I would love a change of scenery and the kids need it as well.

    I do product reviews and giveaways on my blog, able2able… Your Special Needs Resource Directory and now I have a new fantasy – being offered a weekend mini-vacation so I can do my own review and giveaway as a parent of a Special Needs and a Typically Developing child!

    Would love to try the Lantana Spa…..sounds like my kind of place! My idea of the perfect vacation would be a relaxing one!

  289. I am the first woman my boyfriend has introduced to his kids and I’ve just started getting to know them on the weekends his ex-wife doesn’t have them. It would be such a meaningful experience for all four of us to spend uninterrupted time getting to know each other in such a relaxing yet exciting environment, especially because the kids would be so happy in the pool.

    I would love to go to the River Bluff Water Experience. My granddaughter would have a wonderful time and I could stay cool in San Antonio’s exceptional hot weather.

    I would love to have a spa treatment at this place. JW Marriott’s are amazing. Thanks for the chance to win!

  292. Oh man! I could really go for a Citrus and Sunflower Organic Massage ;o) That spa sounds amazing! I could use a little pampering!

  293. I would love to experience the Texas Sarsaparilla and Coffee Scrub at their spa because it sound like a relaxing experience.

  294. Laureen says:

    I would absolutely love to experience the Lantana Spa’s Spirit of the Curanderos Energy treatment! I particularly love that they use natural mineral salts and offer a massage with wild crafted organic lavender oil. My lifestyle revolves around organic, healthy products, so this would be perfect. I also need to de-stress! ;) Thanks!!

    The River Bluff Water Experience sounds amazing and my family would love it. We love floating down lazy rivers and splashing in pools. It’s right up our alley!

  298. Brilliant information. I’ll make sure to return as I write a travel blog for families.

  299. Wow, this place looks great! My son is too young for kids’ club yet but they seem like a great way of getting a bit of grown up time!

  300. My name is Holly and I am a mother of 6. I have 4 girls and 2 boys. I would love to be able to take my kids to San Antonio. My husband and I were married in January. Neither one of us could take the time off or have the funds for a honeymoon. So a weekend away with all our kids in San Antonio would be great!!!
