Just returned from 5 day 20th Anniversary Get-Away. This resort located in a industrial area sits on the same grounds as the Mertiage Hotel. We had a one bedroom studio which was just perfect for the price ( didn't have the points to book through RCI) and the two of us. The location of the resort is perfect, just off the highway and 4 to 5 miles from downtown Napa. You have to visit the downtown area - Allegria - Restaurant was the best. I mean the very best. The food and service was top notch - went there on our first day of arrival - 20th and then we had to celebration our departure with a great meal. Some of the other gotta try restaurants (sorry can't think of the names of them but you have to go and eat there) are right in that little square near the vistors information center, another one that stands out is Piccolini ( good - decent). Also go by the um... riverfront right off of First street near the courthouse and Napa Inn B&B a few other good eats and a delicious sweet shop. Don't go to Buttercreme Bakery! It was a waste of our time and money. Not one of our personal favs - have and MUCH MUCH better and the staff wasn't very friendly. Back to the resort for a minute: The staff at the Mertiage is great - people friendly and the bar area is perfect with great evening entertainment.
I am not a wine drinker but my husband drinks socially. We visited some very nice wineries - the most memorable being in St. Helena just about a 30 minute ride from the resort. Our two favorites were The White Hall and Prager ( actually met the owners). They are just off the main highway down the road from each other. Prager was very interesting because the tasting and wineries are in the backyard or basment of the owners summer home? Busy they are but very accommodating.
Heading back to the resort is a restaurant called The Mustard. Fine to California Casual dining. nice prices and the food looked very good but the wait was 25 minutes and we had, had too much to sip so we needed food ASAP (LOL). I mean a day full of sipping can take its toll.
Anyway, back at the resort there is a sufficient fitness center to meet your cardo needs and the pool and jaguzzi was great. This resort doesn't have a restaurant on site so you share with the Mertiage which is maybe 20 steps away. The food was always excellent.
I hope this write up helps and if you have any further questions please ask. Oh.... evenings require a lite sweater or jacket.
PS: the only minus is in the AM when housekeeping and I guess other visitors are moving around you can hear them. But for some reason today - Sunday- it wasn't so bad.
