Situated on 600 acres of scenic rolling property in the Texas Hill Country, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country is the largest JW Marriott property on the planet! Seriously! And River Bluffs Water Experience is a free amenity for hotel guests, featuring a 650-foot rapid river ride, a children’s water park including smaller rides and a beach entrance, three huge water slides, a number of heated pools and whirlpools (as well as an adults-only infinity pool!), and a 1,100-foot long lazy river. Recently finishing a $16 million expansion (February 2016), the resort increased the size of this water experience from six to eight acres, including an added sandy beach entry pool, cabanas, a spa, and two translucent body slides with 60-foot drops!

The resort is secluded from the city in the Cibolo Canyons area, and promises family fun, adventure, and rest and relaxation when and where it’s needed most – deep in the heart of Texas!
