“Every time we stay here something breaks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have stayed here 4 times with my boyfriend when we come out to Napa.
The PROS-------
-free bus rides into downtown Napa
-mini kitchen in room with wine glasses
-free bottle of wine
-mini fridge to keep your cheese :)
-it's pretty clean
-there's a place to plug in your electric car
The CONS
-the heat/ac controls DO NOT WORK
-one morning we woke up 50 degrees in our room!!
-the phone didn't work
-restaurant is WAY over priced for what they offer
-it's farther away from Napa than you think
-you have to be 25 to go to that meeting to get the free stuff
-the only free wine they give you is MOSCATO.. EWW

Valued Guest,

Thank you for choosing the Vino Bello Resort for your stay; we appreciate your loyalty and feedback. I would like to take the time and address some of the cons you experienced during your stay with us. Our engineering staff follows through with regular maintenance on all of our heating and air conditioning units regularly. I do apologize for your experience and can assure you that I have been taking the proper steps to ensure this doesn’t happen. We are a 10 minute drive from downtown Napa but as you said, the shuttle service provides transportation to and from our resort and downtown Napa. Our restaurant is comparable and competitively priced to those in the surrounding area but this information has been taken into consideration and is appreciated. Once again, I value your feedback and hope you return soon and often.

This was our second time staying at this resort and this time we took our kids with us. The 1bedroom accommodations are excellent, spacious, and well-appointed. The kids loved the "richness" of the room. There are two pools - an adult only pool - and a family-friendly pool that includes a little wading pool, spa, fire pit, and a small water shooting thingy. Beautiful areas around to walk in, including the vineyard on the grounds. We didn't make use of the shuttle to downtown Napa this time, but that is there if ever we need it. The addition of the sports bar complete with bowling alley was a fun visit, and the new coffee shop is a bonus for the early morning coffee and pastry run. We will be back once again, whenever time and budget permits.

This was a nice property. Although it is not quite in the heart of Napa, it is perfect for families. The drive up to Yountville and many of the vineyards is easy since the hotel is right off the main route that goes through Napa, Highway 29.

Each room has a mini kitchen as well as a washer and dryer. It is a large resort with many amenities including a few nice pools, a bacchi court, and a coffee shop.

I would recommend going to see the concierge to get some coupons and suggestions for vineyards. The man we spoke to was Justin. We saved quite a bit of money by going to speak to him.

My husband and I went to Napa for a long weekend. The Vino Bello is attached to the Meritage and the resort and staff were first class. Our hotel room was enormous. It had a full kitchen, dining area, living room with gas fireplace, separate master bedroom with jetted tub and a large bathroom with a glass enclosed shower. We could bring food and wine back to our room and use a stove, microwave, refrigerator etc. We will definitely return in the future.

My husband and I went here with my daughter and son-in-law for a long weekend. It was B-E-A-utiful! We had a rental car, so the drive to the vineyards wasn't bad. We enjoyed the pool, the en-suite amenities. We go to Napa regularly and this is definitely going to be our destination of choice!

Fantastic resort with everything you could want and more besides. OK, maybe it's lacking a grocery store, but who needs that when you have a town right there? Lovely, lovely property, great location, fabulous facilities and a spa that is very cool (built into a cave). Plenty of pools, hot tubs etc and even 2 workout stations that are open 24/7. Tasting on site, you can walk the vineyards and concierge is more than helpful with anything you could want to know. DVDs to "rent" (no charge) and they even supply popcorn to go with them. Outstanding resort.

Room Tip: There is no such thing as a bad room, best as I can tell!

Dillon and Vaughn were very helpful and nice. Very nice resort. Service at the restaurant was slow but the food was good. The place is a little south of town, so plan for it. Mini kitchen in the rooms.
