Westin La Cantera - Family RetreatThursday, August 11, 2011
O - M - G!
Last month my family and I were a part of a wonderful Mommy Blogger Getaway at the Westin La Cantera Resort. My kids have never been on a plane, we do not have annual summer vacations, we have only been on a couple of road trips as a family...so this was a BIG DEAL! Never could we have anticipated the effect it would have on us.
The Westin La Cantera was so family centered. It's noticeable as soon as you check-in, each child is given a stuffed animal and you are given an activity guide with family and adult time-out activities scheduled all day long! No wonder they were chosen as one of the TOP Kid-Friendly Vacation Spots in Texas!
We were able to take advantage of the Westin Kid's Club to care for the kids for a few hours to enjoy the Spa and Texas Wine Tasting. Although there are fees for the Kid's Club Sessions, or an hourly $9 fee, there are plenty of free daily activities such as:
Arts & Crafts,
Nature Trail Adventure,
S'mores by the pool,
Movies on the El Fortin Lawn,
the Rockin' T Lounge (video games for older kids) and Discovery Junction.
Not to mention weekly scheduled activities which include Dinosaur George, Zoomagination, the Magic of Cody Sanders, Yoga and Zumba on the El Fortin Lawn, and even a Looney Tunes Breakfast! You honestly do not even have to leave the resort!
The beauty of it is that you don't even want to.
As a family, we were able to connect with our children, let loose and have fun! As a couple, we were able to experience some Adult Time-Out activities and just enjoy each other's company. Something about that Hill Country just makes you feel at ease... we left feeling so refreshed. It was definitely a great environment for family love!
As a local, I could see us making this an annual family retreat!
