“Gorgeous but more geared 4 adults-not overly kid friendly for aquatics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Decided to book here after much research into what available within 30 min of Safari Park zoo where my 9yr old & I could stay; reviewed website and trip Advisor....couldnt wait to experience and share in this 'treasure' with my competitive swimmer as pool was what sold me......After spending full day with soso weather at zoo navigated through mountains and arrive. Told though that pool will no longer be opened to children after 9 and no jacuzzi at all, puzzled re hot tub but left it at that (have stayed many places& only 2nd time experienced this)
Fantastic supper at oak Grille with superb service; ask front counter about pool in morning told opens around 630/7 in morning so decide as would only have 20 min then to go in morning instead before we check out & go to Yuma. We get up early & head down and advised by 'manager' talking with friend that pool not open until 11 for children 2 access but she could go into wading pool (which was freezing and one foot deep). One swimmer in pool doing laps & my child would have to sit freezing to watch me...rooms lovely, gorgeous scenery and looked like good course but this restriction soured most of the stay as if I had known we would have stayed elsewhere...I advised front desk of this when checking out and was told they would update website but no other attempt to acknowledge what felt like misrepresentation- this alone raises questions and will pay more to stay elsewhere & advise my other golfing families to do same if want fair access to amnetities that u pay for- oak grille staff and food fantastic

Room Tip: middle rooms provide easy access to vehicles and still enjoy balcony

We are very proud of our restaurant, the Oaks Grille. Thank you for acknowledging it!

This resort is in a beautful setting, even though it rained on us the entire weekend, my husband managed to get in nine holes oif golf before the rained closed the course for the entire weekend. The rooms are spacious and the meals were great at both the restaurant the and the Oak Grill. We were there for the St Patrick's weekend, good band and everyone there was so very nice to us. We had a room overlooking the tenth hole with a balcony view. We would go back there again but only if we knew we would have the warm temps and sunshine.....a very nice place to go. There is a casino nearby and several winerys in Ramona if you want to do other things.

Our group of friends come each March for a little golf vacation. We love it here, the golf course is in great condition, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Since my review last year (April 2011), there have been noticeable improvements in the restaurant/bar food and service. They have a new chef, the food is tastier, and operations seem to run smoother. The restaurant is also busier so make reservations. A new menu is more oriented to burgers, pizza, salads, and sandwiches but still includes entrees and nightly specials. The bar, which now extends onto an outdoor patio, is very pleasant. The restaurant is now open for breakfast on Mondays and lunch & dinner are served in the bar on Mondays. All of the staff are friendly and helpful and a joy to be around.

Room Tip: top floor rooms have high ceilings; wireless internet does not always extend to the rooms further aw...

We happened upon this condo/restaurant/golf resort by accident and were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. Very friendly and helpful staff, you are made to feel at home. The condo was clean, updated, comfortable bed and lovely view of the golf course from the private patio. This is a very reasonably priced property with a very good restaurant and cozy bar with friendly locals and guests and a fun, relaxed atmosphere. We would do a return visit and next time play golf!

Room Tip: We had a room in the second floor with a great view of the golf course and lovely landscaping.

We were in the area for one night; our son competed in his first race at Barona Oaks Motocross Park. We don't have a trailer like a lot of the other racers and honestly this was the only place to stay for miles other than the Barona Casino which didn't appeal to us. I read all of the great reviews before booking and San Vicente did not disappoint! The hotel is older, but is very clean and the grounds are beautiful and well kept. We are not golfers but did enjoy the great view of the course from our room. We ate dinner at The Oaks Grille and it was fabulous. The service was great too, and Mary Lou was very sweet and accommodating. The best part is we paid over $90 less than we would have for a comparable room at Barona Casino. We have already booked our next stay in a couple of weeks and this will be our place of choice when we come to race.

We booked our stay with this resort after reading the reviews on tripadviser. We live in San Diego County and wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary away from the crowds and city life. We originally booked our stay for the first weekend in February and where unable to keep the reservacation. Mary Lou was kind enough to reschedule our room without charging a cancelation fee considering we canceled less then 24 hrs in advance. We stayed on the top floor overlooking the golf course. Our room was ready when we checked in. The room was very clean and airy. The ceilings are vaulted, which made the room appear larger, where the ceiling meets the roof there are window which bring in more light. The grounds are well kept and very nice. We ate two meals at the Oaks grill, the breakfast was just ok. The dinner on the other hand was fantastic. If your a golfer this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor

Thank you so much for choosing our resort to celebrate your anniversary. Our employees take great pride in the service provided and are happy to assist however we can. We hope you choose to return often as we do have "mild" changes of season which provides a different backdrop for your visit. San Vicente Resort is AAA Triple Diamond Awarded and our rooms certainly meet the criteria.
