Hello friends! We spent four of the most glorious days in San Antonio this past week at the Hyatt  Wild Oak Ranch resort, with some of our friends.  If you have never stayed there, you need to continue reading this post, because I promise by the end of it, you will want to go there. This was our fourth trip there in eight years. And it never gets tiresome. This was my view for most of the days.

The lazy river {otherwise known as rattlesnake river} is just so relaxing, all you do is float around in a tube all day long. There's a little bit of shade due to the trees but a lot of sun too. Talk about a family-friendly resort, this is it! There is a sandy beach for the kids to play and build sand castles. 

In the morning they played classical soothing music that you would hear at a relaxing spa. During the day they play country music. If you tire of the lazy river, you can head up to the main pool where you will find two water slides and a game of water volleyball. The water in this pool is so comfortable, almost like bathwater. 

Each room has a full kitchen with all the accessories. We simply buy groceries at one of the local grocery stores and prepare meals for the week. You don't ever have to leave the resort if you don't want to. They do have a full service restaurant and bar on the premises - JBs. The resort offers a free shuttle to its sister resort the Hyatt Hill Country as well as Sea World.

The resort offers many family opportunities such as golf on the putting green, a nature trail, volleyball, basketball, movie night, Smore's at the Wallflower  Pavilion.


For those that prefer to dine without the children, there are babysitting services available at camp armadillo, where they will entertain the children for a fee. How does princess for the day or superhero for the day sound? I bet the kids would enjoy that! 

For a family outing, why not try Sea World? For better rates try to buy your tickets ahead of time or on Groupon. Our kids had the fabulous opportunity to touch and feed a dolphin. They had so much fun! It was so nice to take advantage of the free shuttle service from the resort to Sea World. Front door service at its best. 

We were able to take in a few shows while we were there!

As well as a few rides! 

We had such a great day at Sea World! I think getting wet was a highlight of the day and our trip!

Early morning river floating with the family! 

Not sure where we spent most of our time - at the lazy river or at the main pool playing on the water slides.

The grounds are so beautiful we just had to share these photos of some of the flowers you will see.

This Hibiscus was bigger than both my hands! Crazy!

We were able to take most of these photos early in the morning before everyone got out for the day! I usually took an early morning walk by myself around the premises! What a great way to start the day! 

The Icehouse is a small store which carries some baked goods as well as some necessities. 

A great sitting area just outside the main registration building! 

This little cutie {my little one} greeting everyone as they came into register for their stay!

After we check-out of our room at the Wild Oak Ranch, we went into "town", walked the River Walk and visited The Alamo. As the evening closed my hubby treated us all to a horse drawn carriage ride around the city! Isabella LOVED it! 

The weather was perfect as was our vacation! Are you ready to spent some time at Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch? What do you have planned this summer? A stay-cation or a vacation away from home? Where to?
