I loved the hotel.  I was absolutely gorgeous.  Bathrooms were clean, elegant, shower was great.  I scheduled a massage and even though the spa was closed for construction, I was escorted to a suite where I was pampered.  The only downfall is if you self park. It's a good walk to the hotel.  I would highly recommend valet.

Very nice, quiet hotel

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, great staff
Cons: no free breakfast
Hotel is very new and quiet. All staff was very friendly. Breakfast was very good in the restaurant, but not cheap. Very large pool. Great hot water to the shower but not great at the sink.

Beautiful facility not run as a hotel. Runs more like a longer stay hotel

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast, bad service
Beatiful facilites, not run as a hotel. Employees look at you like "These funny people that actually come and stay here"... It seems that the owners are more concerned about their property investment than making anybody feel welcome. I called for help with my bags, they never came. The elevator shows the lobby on the wrong floor, you tell them and they say: "Oh it is very expensive to change it", so you have to drag your bags one flight up and nobody cares. They don't have room service 24 hours... The rooms are new, nice & clean. The service leaves a lot to be desired.

My New Home!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I live in WDC but am from San Antonio and visit 4-6 times a year. I've stayed at quite a few places in the San Antonio area, but Eilan has been excellent each time I stayed (a total of 2 so far). Upon my second visit, I was immediately and warmly greeted by name at the reception desk (thank you Kimberly); I had the best service from room staff and housekeeping for the duration of my stay; and the overall ambiance is simply enchanting. I can't imagine staying anywhere else from now on!

Absolutely stunning resort.

Pros: Close restaurants
This resort was absolutely gorgeous! I wish we had stayed much longer to enjoy all the amenities. The pool also was so beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. Extemely peaceful. We will come again!

Hidden Gem

Pros: Quiet, resort style pool, great for families, shopping proximity
I've stayed in this property twice. The first time I visited, they just opened and I could see how they were a bit rough around the edges. But now, the hotel is in full swing! The restaurant is EXCELLENT and the resort style pool is refreshing in this hot summer sun. That pool bar is a plus. Going shopping after a relaxing day at the pool in La Cantera really topped it off for my wife and I.

May be better once it is complete

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
My wife and I went to Eilan for a "date night" recently. We stayed in the hotel and ate at the restaurant. The hotel staff was acceptable, not rude, but not really concerned about much. I was expecting everyone to be on top of their game since the hotel has only been opened a few weeks. I reserved the Spa Terrace King, which was the nicest of four room options they had listed. There was a problem with our room, and the only other room they could come up with was a standard king. Both rooms were nicely appointed, but not to the level I have come to expect from a resort hotel. I would recommend Westin La Cantera as a better option. Additionally, the property is still under construction. The pool is incomplete. The only amenities open at this time are the restaurant and the spa. If there are others, we were not informed of them, nor is there any type of hotel directory in the room. The restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful. The specialty cocktails were good, the oysters were also good. We were not impressed with the entrees.
