Oh, don’t worry. Mimi and Papa had supervision duty so I came home to a house fully intact!
Just the beautiful scenery alone as you make your way down the winding country road to Tapatio Springs will get you excited about your stay. We arrived on a rainy afternoon and thought that might put a damper on our weekend. However, after checking into our room and sitting on our private balcony for just a little while, the rain lifted and we began to plan just how we would spend our weekend. From the friendly staff and our handy map we were given at check-in, we knew there were two amazing pools to explore (with poolside games), the Spa (always a girls favorite), Golf, dining at La Cascada, shopping in Boerne and more.
We decided not to plan our weekend too much which worked out really well for us. It was glorious just to relax and enjoy the resort at our own leisure. Over the course of the weekend, we visited the town of Boerne, relaxed in the pool and hot tub, watched the deer and ducks, ate s’mores around the fire pit, dined at La Cascada and so much more.
Needless to say I was like a pouting baby when the weekend came to an end and my bags had to be packed to head back home. If only I could stay one more day I thought to myself but real life mom duty awaited. At least we were headed home all refreshed and re-charged and that is exactly what we were seeking here and successfully found at Tapatio Springs.
If you’re looking for a fun family vacation , a romantic getaway or even a fine dining experience (foodies welcome), you will find it all at Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort and Spa!

Tapatio Springs has two amazing pools. We spent a lot of time poolside and enjoyed every minute of it! Our favorite was the smaller pool as it was more geared for adults and featured a picturesque waterfall. The larger pool is great for families with children who can enjoy the waterslide and splash are with mini-fountains. There are plenty of activities poolside in this area as well. Here you can play cornhole, order a drink from the outdoor bar and even make a sweet smores treat on the outdoor fire pit. While we didn’t get a chance to visit the spa personally, you can book an appointment for a day of pampering if you like. I will definitely be visiting the spa on our next visit!
6. Outdoor Fire Pits
Sit out under the stars and enjoy a delightful treat of smores. Our favorite fire pit was right on the golf course where we could look out over the beautiful greens and see the hill country all around us. Kicking back in an adornack chair and looking up at the night sky full of stars just does something to the soul. Ahhh…..I am relaxed now just thinking about it.
You don’t need to be a golfer to appreciate Tapatio Springs but if you are then you will be in heaven! This 18-hole championship course has been rated a “Top Ten Course” by the Dallas Morning News and it is no wonder why. It is absolutely a sight to see. We didn’t personally golf but we spoke to many families who came just so dad could play golf while they enjoyed the rest of the resort.
The golf course is invaded at night. No, I’m not kidding! I woke up around 2am one morning during our stay and stepped out onto the balcony. When I looked over the edge of the golf course I could see a slow moving parade of – well I really didn’t know what of at first but as I came out of my slumber I could see that they were deer. Not just one or ten or twenty deer but a group of deer that numbered easily into the hundreds. I was in awe as I watched them for a good twenty minutes as they slowly trekked across the course for as far as I could see. They walked with such ease that it was a beautiful thing to witness. I guess you can tell I’m a city girl, huh?
