Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Mokara Spa, a two-story, 17,000-square-foot oasis, is awash in earthy tones and polished woods.
  • Ostra, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, wins you over with a modern, marine blue-speckled dining room that goes perfectly with the menu of locally farmed chicken and sustainable seafood.
  • Once the Frank Saddlery in the 1800s, the 99-room Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel walks with one cowboy boot steeped in its past (a front desk made of stretched leather; and Wild West pictures and other accents tastefully dot additional areas of the hotel).
  • If you want drinks with a view, head on up to the rooftop café.
Things to Know
  • Mokara is a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel steps from San Antonio's famed tourist mecca, the River Walk, which is home to some of the city’s most popular restaurants, nightlife and attractions.
  • The location can’t be beat — besides the very close proximity to the River Walk, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is less than half a mile away from the city’s other major tourist attraction, The Alamo.
  • We recommend making the (very) short trip to the site of the legendary, 13-day Texas Revolution battle in which William Travis, Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett and 177 other men banded together to defend the site against a significantly larger Mexican army.
The Rooms
  • Rooms have 12-foot ceilings to allow guests to relax in spacious comfort.
  • There are classic four-poster beds in the guest rooms, drawing on the old school western style.
  • In the bathrooms, feel free to call on your own personal bath butlers to draw your water.
The Restaurants
  • Don’t miss the oyster bar at Mokara Hotel & Spa’s Ostra, a sophisticated seafood restaurant. Other signature fish dishes at Ostra include miniature tuna tacos, blackened Texas redfish, salmon with sweet potato hash, and whole crispy snapper.
  • A two-course lunch served Mondays through Fridays lets you choose between spinach salad, chicken caldo soup or Caesar salad for a starter and between a chicken sandwich, redfish sandwich or turkey sandwich for your main course.
  • Ostra also serves breakfast daily, including roasted poblano migas, Mexican coffee and a signature Bloody Mary. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel also has a rooftop café serving sandwiches, salads and cocktails for lunch if you want to dine and take in the view.
