In the past I turned up my nose at the idea of trading my beautiful Hawaii timeshare for a glorified mobile home. After reading good reviews we decided to give Riverpointe a try. I am not sorry we did. Yes, the units are small but they are not old or run down or old fashioned in my opinion and we generally stay at Mariotts, Westins, Hilton etc. They are cutsied up mobile homes and considering the space limitations, I think they are very attractive and comfortable. The high ceilings and numerous large windows help create an airy and cheerful space. The resort realizes they have minuses to overcome and do what they can, such as providing high quality comfortable beds, good linens, thick Egyptian cotton towels, good quality appliances, etc.
The public amenities such as the club house, pool and spas are not lavish but are more than adequate. We used the grills on a few occassions and they are conveniently placed for a short walk from most units. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and the resort activities such as wine tasting evenings are wonderful. We enjoyed walking along the river in the morning and appreciated the fact that Walmart is .20 mile away, the Wine Train is .80 mile away, and if you feel ambitious you can walk to downtown. The location is great and that makes up for many minor short comings. If I could substitute a fancier resort on the same grounds that would be fantastic, but let's face it, that isn't possible. Only you can say whether the trade off between convenience and luxury is worth it for you. I have no idea why a previous reviewer said that the pictures did not match the resort in real life. Everything looked exactly as shown in the photos as far as I could see.
Napa is a desireable travel destination and Riverpointe places you right in the heart of restaurants, shops and wineries. It gives you the means to cook some of your own meals if you like. The location is quiet, peaceful and scenic, and the individual units insure that you don't have noisy neighbors above, below or on the other side of the next wall you as you'd have with a hotel. We enjoyed our stay and I would happily stay there again.
