If I could afford to get married here all the time I would! The Hyatt is has tons of natural Beauty and charm. The staff there was amazing. They were so accommodating to all of our needs. They went above and beyond in every aspect. Gretchen the wedding coordinator there is friendly and does her job well. She was knowledgeable and was always reachable for whatever was needed. I can't recommend the Hyatt enough. I almost forgot to mention how DELICIOUS the food is. My husband is a chef and it is no easy task to please him when it comes to food, yet the Hyatt did so
The PERFECT day!Reviewed on 11/28/2014 Laura S
Kristin and her team at the Hyatt did a FABULOUS job with everything. We came to them four months prior because La Cantera had put us in a bind by being closed, and they executed everything flawlessly and made us feel like we were top priority!!! Not only did they give us a great deal on rooms for all our many out of town guests, they really made our day feel like it was a huge deal to them! They blocked off our lawn during the ceremony and before, and the Fredericksburg ballroom that we used was beautiful and perfect!! Everyone loved the food, the venues, and how nice everyone was there. Everything truly happens for a reason, Hyatt made our wedding day absolutely amazing!!!
Hill Country SplendorReviewed on 7/08/2014 Annie C
If you're considering having your wedding here...DO IT! I married my man under the Hill Country Hyatt's colossal oak tree on the back lawn. I had a wedding planner, but really did not need one because the Hyatt's wedding coordinator (Nicole Garza) was so competent and organized. The Hill Country Ballroom was a perfect reception venue. I highly recommend taking advantage of the lighting company the Hyatt partners with. The effects the lighting had on the ballroom were incredible! Our guests loved that they could stay in one place for all festivities and party around the giant pool/lazy river prior to the main event. Cannot give the Hyatt enough kudos for setting the scene for a dream wedding.
Perfect Night!Reviewed on 10/28/2015 Lizz B
I can not say enough good things about the service at the Hyatt Hill Country! We had our wedding at Lone Oak, a grove of oak trees near the entrance to the golf course and it was BEAUTIFUL! Our coordinator Gretchen was fantastic and did an amazing job helping me coordinate all my vendors. I planned my wedding long distance and she was always available with great ideas and was extremely flexible in meeting with me during my short visits to San Antonio leading up to the wedding. The wedding packages they offer is OUTSTANDING! Our ceremony site, reception site, dinner, bar, wedding cake, tables/ linens, and a honeymoon suite were included in the package at an incredible price. The meal at the reception was phenomenal and the staff went out of their way to make sure that every guest was attended to (we had a few picky eaters and even they were blown away by the meal). I couldn't imagine a more magical night and it would not have been possible without Gretchen and the exemplary staff at the Hyatt! I HIGHLY suggest that everyone check them out, they are the best.
Beautiful venue, bad bar experienceReviewed on 4/13/2015 Nicole G
First of all, the Hyatt is an absolutely stunning place to get married. There are various venues to choose from and it's great for gathering family and friends for a weekend of fun. Unfortunately, my experience was less than I hoped for. After a picture perfect ceremony and cocktail hour, things started to go down-hill at the reception. I can say they did a great job setting up our party and the food was awesome. The BUT comes with the bar service. The staff was insanely rude and condescending after claiming too many of our guests were too intoxicated. They cut off our bar at 10 p.m. when our wedding wasn't scheduled to end until 11. Now from my definitely not intoxicated view, it was a ridiculous judgement call. First off, it's a wedding! No one was doing anything out-of the ordinary. 90% of our guests were staying at the hotel. They claimed safety and liability was the issue, But THEY actually caused the safety troubles when they shut down the bar...causing the majority of our wedding guests to leave early! Those guests proceeded to "Charlie's Long Bar" inside the hotel where the reception bartender told those bartenders NOT to serve anyone that had been at the wedding. Many of our guests then chose to DRIVE to a bar to continue the celebration. This is exactly what we were trying to avoid by ensuring they all booked $200-$400 rooms/night. Side note, one of wedding stipulations was that the hotel bar stay open till 1 a.m. for our guests. I will say the hotel staff (other than the bartenders at the reception and bar) was extremely friendly, understanding and apologetic. It was just an unexpected, and truthfully, embarrassing experience. The management has tried their best to apologize and make it up to us...which we appreciate. It's just kind of sad because there's no way we can really go back and gain that one hour of time we could've had at our special day with all of our guests.
Amazing!Reviewed on 7/08/2014 Dora G
Everything was amazing! Food, service, treatment to myself and my guest, everything was outstanding! The wedding planner communicates well and is very organized. She catered to every request promptly.

Hill Country WeddingReviewed on 5/22/2013 Andella D
We held the ceremony and reception at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country and I was amazed at how friendly and accommodating the staff was, the beautiful landscape and interiors, and the flexibility of changing the location so quickly with impending rain. We had an amazing time with the help of our coordinator, Nicole Garza. I would recommend this location for weddings with family coming from far away as it become a vacation for all of our guests.
Great Home Base For Our WeddingReviewed on 10/27/2012 Alex I
We stayed here, had our rehearsal dinner, and Sunday brunch at the hotel as well. Our guests loved this resort & it had something for everyone (spa, lazy river, running trails). Nicole was great to work with & we had a wonderful weekend.
Wedding VenueReviewed on 5/08/2012 Courtney E
My best friend go married her outside. The ceremony was very pretty and reception was covered and not too close to the main hotel part, which made it feel more private. The staff was very friendly and didn't mind that we used the bar area to take a lot of pictures!
