Thread: Hyatt Hill Country Vs. JW Marriott

    Hyatt Hill Country Vs. JW Marriott

    The wife and I are taking the kids and another family/kids to SA next month. We have been to Hyatt Hill Country several times so we know the drill there. Just wondering if anyone has been to JW Marriott and how it compares from a kids/pool/lazy river/ - is it worth the switch? Many thanks

    We've been to the JW. It's a pretty bad ass pool and lazy river setup. Great place to take kids and they have a (somewhat) small adult only area.

    The JW has the considerably better pool setup (a fair amount of slides for a hotel setup) but the lazy river is better at the Hyatt (more natural looking/feeling where as the JW one, you know you're in a pool). The JW is like a mini schittlerbahn where as the Hyatt is like a mini "float the river" trip. That's my best analogy.

    I'm guessing the JW is also more expensive...

    JW marriott feels less crowded even when it is sold out. A bit of a walk to the slides after your ride, but that helps keep the lines shorter. Buffet breakfast package is pretty handy at JW.

    The wife and I have taken our daughter to both and probably prefer the JW. We really like both, but the JW is newer and that always helps. I really like JW's bar, too. Both can be pricey. We also enjoy staying at Lost Pines in Bastrop.

    I've been to both a lot.

    IMO JW Marriott hands down. Pools is killer. The lights are awesome at night. Hypnotic.

    It's a moster place but feels more spread out and chill. Food is good ant the Velocity sports bar is great for watching games on their projectors.

    Hyatt is nice, but JW raised the bar.


    Lost pines is really cool too. I used to be a BS counselor at the Summer camp out there.

    Wife is going out of town to visit family tomorrow early. Surprising the kids. I booked a night at the JW with points. We've been there before, and we all loved it.

    I told them tonight that I was going to think of something fun to do tomorrow, so just be ready. Around 10am, going to say, okay, I think I got it. Get dressed, pack your bags, we're going somewhere. They won't know where until we pull up. Spend the day at the pool, do the s'mores on the firepit, watch the night time movie.

    Wife is totally jelly. Teach her to leave us alone for the weekend.

    ah, the sea world joints

    where be the JW with the lazy river?

    The JW is really awesome. Got here at 12:30. Checked in and then went down to the Velocity sports bar for lunch. Kids played checkers while we waited. Watched the British Open while the kids went over to see the animal show. (snake, wallabee, porcupine, etc..) We then changed and went to the pool. Alternated between hanging out with the kids on the slides/pool/lazy river, and going back to the seats and having a beer and reading. Went back to the room around 6 and ordered room service dinner. After that, took the daughter to do the big inflatable ball while the son played football on the green with other kids. S'mores then at the fire pit followed by watching How to Train a Dragon in the pool. Kids are passed out now while I sit on the balcony and have a drink. Love this place.

    Wild Oak looks like fun. Says you have access to the Hyatt restaurants. Does anyone know if you have pool access as well? Anybody have additional comments on Wild Oak?

    The Wild Oak has a fantastice pool with two slides, one inside and one outside. The inside pool is heated during the cold months. The pool can go from inside to the out and they do have their own lazy river. If you are staying there, you and any of your guests can use the facilities.
