“Awesome hotel...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

This hotel is amazing, the staff is friendly and they are always looking for the best. The character breakfast at Francesca's at sunset is awesome for the kids, actually lunch and dinner with the sunset is relaxing and romantic.
The rooms are awesome, great heavenly beds and showers. They have a pool for kids and family and another one just for adults.
The location of the resort is about 1.5 miles of The Shops at La Cantera, so if you like to go shopping or golfing the resort is the best place for you.

Room Tip: The only disappointment with this hotel is the wifi, it is free but is 256k if you like high speed i...

The view from every window is beautiful. The pools are great for families, couples, and singles. Six Flags Fiesta is very close, and there are a lot of shopping opportunities in the area. My only concern is that it if you need/want to go into downtown, it is a good drive.

We just celebrated our first anniversary at the Westin La Cantera and it was just perfect! The staff is impeccable and the amenities are superb!

I booked our hotel room via the 1-800 number on the website after looking through specials, etc. I chose the "Indulgence Package" that came with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne, and they were both fabulous, and a 4 pm late check out! The gentleman I booked with couldn't have been nicer and it was super easy.

When we arrived, the valet men were extra courteous and took great care of our bags and vehicle. Check-in was a breeze and they must have noted it was our anniversary, because everyone wished us a happy one! I had brought our wedding cake to have for dessert at the hotel restaurant, Francesca's, and they took care of all of the details with delivering it to the restaurant, serving, etc, it was such a relief!

Our room was amazing! We stayed on the 7th floor and had a marvelous view of the hill country. Everything in the room was top-notch, the bedding, the bathrooms, tv's etc. They even have a cute little bag labeled hair dryer, with an actual real hair dryer, not one of those awful wall mounted one your hair get's stuck in!

After getting settled we ventured down to the pools, we chose the adult pool, and enjoyed some frozen drinks. I had the pomegranate margarita and it was fabulous! Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. After that we stopped in the lobby bar and I had the signature margarita, with agave, it was even better!

Dinner reservations were at 7:30 at Francesca's and I swear we had the best seat in the house! The sun was setting and we had the most spectacular view of the sunset! Dinner was fabulous and our waiters, yes we had 2 were just great! The food couldn't have been better. I had the Guajillo Chile Rubbed Filet of Beef- it was extraordinary! I wish I could have it every day! At the end of dinner one of the waiters brought out our anniversary cake and it couldn't have been a more perfect evening!

The next day morning we had breakfast at Brannon's Cafe, and it too was great! They had a buffet option with everything you could imagine from create your own omelets to waffles, fruit and more. Anther pool trip and it was sadly time to check out.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a luxurious weekend get-a-way. They really know how to take good care of their guests!

I can NOT say enough about this fine resort! IT is clean, lovely, and has THE best staff of any resort I have ever stayed in worldwide! We were on the 7th floor (Preferred member floor), and Mary too amazing care of us each day! She welcomed us as we got off the elevator, made sure we had everything we needed at the comp breakfasts and happy hours each day, and was just a joy to be around. We just live 4 hours north of this resort, but will be back every chance we get!!

Room Tip: if traveling with kiddos, ask for a room with easy access to the pool area. if self parking ask for...

We stayed here for a wedding. The spa was booked up,so I was unable to get a massage,but that was my own fault for not booking early.
The breakfast buffet was awesome and largely because of the awesome omelets made for us by Pete. I wanted to go back and have Pete make me more food,but I already felt like a pig.
Thanks for an awesome breakfast!

It is great to hear that you enjoyed yourself (and, you should have definitely had another omelet!). We apologize that you weren't able to get an appointment at Castle Rock Health Club and Spa, but it is definitely worth a return visit! We hope to see you again soon.
