The breakfast buffet at $22. a person was a disappointment. Although the omelet bar was well stocked and the chef prepared a excellent omelet the rest of the bar was not well thought out. A cheese tray lacked crackers or rolls and only sliced bread was provided. I specifically asked and was told that no crackers or other bread was...

Pros: 5 star stay for my Birthday, enjoyed every second of each day! From check-in to check-out, the staff here did not miss a beat!

The Mokara Hotel and spa offer first class amenities right on the San Antonio River Walk. The room was quite comfortable and tastefully decorated. The one disappointment was the view, which amounted to the wall of a neighboring building but we were rarely in the room other than to sleep. I was there for a business conference attended by approx....

This hotel is a lovely little boutique Hotel located in downtown San Antonio right on the Riverwalk. It is a smaller hotel was a very private feel. I cannot say enough about their customer service.

We made a reservation at the Omni La Mansion, but we're not happy with the rooms. Rick, the concierge at the Omni suggested that we would be happier at the 'sister' property across the river, Mokara. He was exactly right! This hotel was more suitable to our desires. The rooms are much larger, brighter, cleaner and spacious! The staff at...

First trip to the Riverwalk and we were not disappointed! The Mokara is everything it claims to be....great location, great service, great restaurant, great spa! Perfect for a couples trip. Even the rooftop pool and fitness center met our expectations.
