See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Now you can visit San Antonio and enjoy the beach all in one with JW Marriott San Antonio’s new River Bluff Water Experience.

The $16-million, 3-acre expansion to the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa debuted in March, 2016. The River Bluff Water Experience expands the existing 9-acre water park and added 130-foot-long beach-entry pool, a 70 by 35-foot sand-filled play area, two thrilling new water slides, private cabanas, a hot tub, and 230 additional lounge chairs and artificial turf lawn space. The new water slides include a 47-foot free fall slide and a looping waterslide.

Of course guests may also enjoy the original River Bluff Water Experience features, which includes a beach-entry large activity pool, a children’s pool, an infinity-edge adult pool, hot and cold plunge pools, a lazy river stretching more than 1,000 feet, and three original water slides. All pools and water features are heated so guests may enjoy the fun year-round.
