“Beautiful Wedding and Stay at Ponte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We stayed at Ponte Inn May 5-9 and had a fabulous time. The great service, rooms, food, and grounds made the wedding perfect. They made us feel like we had individual attention and not just a number in a big complex.

If looking for a wedding venue, this is a great place. We live in Texas and did all arrangements through Ponte for flowers, music, cake, food, clergy, photos etc. with the help of their wedding planner Liz Tyler. She made it so easy and personal.

If we return to Temecula, we would definitely stay at Ponte Inn. Thanks!!

The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. The grounds, lobby, and room are beautifully maintained. The food was excellent. The Bouquet restaurant was very good and the food was delicious. The live music in The Cellar was very good as well.

This hotel and vineyard was beautiful ,. The most gorgeous setting with outdoor dining
The rooms are beautifully appointed with beautiful vineyard views when we stayed it was glorious to watch hot air balloons in the morning,.the wine tour was a little disappointing as quick and small area but the outdoor dining was lovely . There is no room service in the morning so breakfast served in the lounge this was once again delightfull great veg juices also. Evening restaurant gets booked up so best to book in advance,. No privacy outside rooms as people can walk around at leisure lovely welcome pack

Room Tip: We stayed groin floor with terrace beautiful

The Ponte is a very nice hotel. As other reviewers have said, the rooms are well appointed, the beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly and the restaurants offer very good food. However, it is a stretch to call it a first class resort, particularly if you compare it to Napa Valley properties. First, there is no pool. Temecula is hot; sometimes very hot and there is no plausible excuse for the absence of a pool. The staff does its best to toe the party line and say that a pool would spoil the "tranquility of the experience." Wrong; some of the most tranquil hotels in the world have pools. Second, there is no spa. Yes, you can get a massage but they are done in your room. "So, if we move the chair, and squeeze around the bed, we might be able to get the table to fit." That would certainly be very relaxing. It looks like a lot of the guests are attending a wedding or event either at the hotel or nearby. If you are looking for a nice place to stay after some wine tasting and wedding festivities then the Ponte should work just fine. But if you are looking for a true resort experience then you should keep looking.

The Inn sits on the edge of the vineyard. We were greeted promptly on arrival, given a glass of wine and made to feel welcome. We were also given a free wine tasting [which we took advantage of]. Our patio opened onto a vineyard and we spent the afternoon relaxing with a bottle of wine. The Inn is also within walking distance to a couple of vineyards. We ate breakfast here and two dinners. One dinner at Bouquet and the other at The Restaurant at Ponte. Both meals were excellent as was the service overall.

Room Tip: I do not think there would be a bad room.

From the entry of the property to the lobby, the restaurants, the rooms, the staff---everything is perfection! This is a luxury resort so if you are looking for the Hampton Inn, this is not your place. If you are looking to be spoiled and treated like you're somebody this IS your place! Two very small suggestions for this superb facility--1) pave the drive way and parking lot. a resort as gorgeous as this deserves a paved parking lot. 2) It seems intentional that there is no pool and in truth we didn't miss it, but perhaps a large hot tub? Someplace to hang out in the afternoon to grab some sun and downtime. As mentioned, we didn't miss a pool one bit.
This resort is spectacular, the views are amazing and the staff is 100% there for the guests. If you don't enjoy yourselves here, something is missing. 4 days of Heaven for us! Yes, YES, YES--stay here!

Room Tip: The standard rooms are large enough. We went for a suite because it was a landmark birthday celebrat...
