My wife and I stayed for one night in June. I think it will be the first of many stays. The resort is about 8 miles from "downtown" Ramona but has many self included activities that you never have to leave. The staff is very friendly, and upon entering our one bedroom suite, we decided to skip driving to town... More

Great location...outside the hustle and bustle of San Diego but close enough to drive into San Diego to the beach or seaworld in less than an hour.... We loved the quiet location and the great service of the staff... Is a must stay if you a quiet great value in the wine country of Ramona, CA

We enjoyed our stay very much! The suite was great, bed was comfy, pool was wonderful. We went to the Ramona Drag Races - right down the street (almost). Very convenient. Hope to come back next year! Loved our stay.

Riviera Oaks Resort is located in the San Diego mountains about half an hour drive from Escondido (Northern San Diego). The drive there was not bad and the place was easy to find. The place looks like an apartment complex from outside and nothing looks special. There's a pool and Jacuzzi right outside of our unit. The inside, however, is... More

We were staying at the resort for a week. It's an older timeshare, a little run down - room and furniture. Asked for a room facing a pool; got one facing the road instead :-(. The service was excellent - staff reacted to all our requests very quickly. The resort is about 45 min drive from San Diego. We also... More

The resort and the accommodations proved to be an oasis in the desert after climbing the boulder filled mountains of Ramona to get there. The units were well decorated, stocked and maintained. Huge amount of room, storage and closets. The grounds and facilities were wonderful (pool, tennis, gym, horseback riding, etc.). The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping (Francisco... More

Had a huge 2 bedroom suite. The location is a little remote bit it's really peaceful and serene. Our room faced Ramona Oaks Rd so there was some road noise, but I loved that the room faced the creek bed and trees. A little noise from the room above us but not too bad. Loved the pool/jacuzzi and the overall... More

We stayed in a two bedroom villa and were absolutely astounded by the quality of the accommodations. We booked this through Expedia and will never do that again! Trying to get something through to that organization is difficult or next to impossible. However the resort itself is absolutely beautiful we have a villa that is next to a park is... More
