“Wonderful way to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

We stayed here on a Tuesday night and wished we had booked at least another night. Our patio room overlooked the vineyards. We booked the wine and dine package that included wine tastings as well as breakfast the next morning. I have absolutely no complaints and Madelyn was excellent in helping us with everything we needed. The room was spacious, the bathroom, toiletries, robes, slippers, and beds were all first class. There were not many guests around, so it was very quiet and relaxing. We ate dinner and breakfast in the Bouquet on the patio. Those were nice as well although one of our steaks was undercooked (which they fixed).
I would love to come back and spend some more time and maybe do some of the spa options. We had our 19yr old and 21 yr old daughters that loved the place as well!

We booked the Ponte because we were attending a concert next door and Wiens Family Cellars. We could walk (if we enjoyed the party a little too much). It was perfect. The rooms are stunning. We had a patio off the vineyards. It was a great place to enjoy the coffee provided in the room before having the wonderful Italian coffee in their restaurant. The grounds are simple yet perfect.
I was remarking to my husband how it felt "real" The grounds and decor are not over the top "cheesy winery" They have a beautiful blend of rustic/elegance. The infused water in the lobby is always a favorite. The beds were comfy. The shower is huge. The out door sitting areas are wonderful. We left our party and came back to sit around the fire pit until after midnight with friends. They have a quiet time which for us, that are not traveling with children and are not 21 anymore, we appreciate the more adult atmosphere.

Every one of our experiences at Ponte exceeded expectations at every turn. We loved the boutique-feel of the Vineyard Inn -- very nice accommodations with personal touches and wonderful customer service. Madelyn sent us an email before arrival to make sure our arrangements were in order and greeted us with wine at check-in (a very smooth process). We booked a balcony room for two nights and requested a vineyard view based on suggestions from other tripadvisor users. While we still had a view of the parking lot from one angle, the balcony also provided a great view of the vineyards and hot air balloons each morning. The rooms were clean and very quiet, the bed and pillows were heavenly, and the hotel grounds were breathtaking. Breakfast at Bouquet on the patio was lovely. Our waiter provided great service while giving my husband and I space to enjoy our relaxing anniversary vacation. Looking back, we wish we would have had all our meals on our 5 year anniversary at Ponte restaurants. Unfortunately, we made the poor decision to have dinner at the restaurant at South Coast Winery where we experienced a VERY noisey patio dining area, awful service, and mediocre food. Conversely, at Ponte we felt welcomed and appreciated as valued guests. While Ponte was fairly expensive (both room rates and restaurant prices), their overall service, room accommodations, and atmosphere set the backdrop for an unforgettable landmark anniversary getaway. What a great first experience with Ponte! We WILL be back for many more trips in the future!!!!

Room Tip: Have breakfast at Bouquet. Beautiful view, relaxing atmosphere, and great service!

We came all the way from Sydney, Australia to experience the wonderful hospitality of this beautiful hotel in the Temecula wine country. I have already told our friends in Australia of our exceptional experience. The service, food, luxurious rooms, the pretty gardens and expansive views of the vineyards are exactly what we wanted. We loved our stay. The Ponte wines are fabulous. We were extremely happy with the whole experience......Thank you to all.

I was at this hotel last week and I must admit, it was perhaps the most amazing time I've had in all the times I've been to Temecula. What an extraordinary staff including Madelyn and Al of Guest Services and the overnight front desk staff (I forgot her name). All were very helpful from the time of my booking, during my stay and at my time of departure. A far cry from the troubling experiences I've had next door at SouthCoast. I will surely be back again and again. I've already have friends looking into this establishment for future vacation plans! I can not praise the staff enough for the warm welcome and services provided during my stay. The entire team at Ponte was on point for services, efficiency, technology, hospitality and guidance. Bravo to the Ponte team and their dedication to providing top notch hospitality to their guests. And did I mention this hotel is pet friend too :)

Thanks again and again for all that you have done for me and my family, it was the most memorable stay for us in Temecula thus far!!!

This was the most relaxing 3 days I have spent in a long time. The ground are amazing, surrounded by vineyards, so peacefully quiet. The staff was very accomodating, the minute we walked in we were given a glass of moscato, the rooms were beautiful and you thought you were the only people in the hotel the rooms are extremly quiet. We became wine club because the wine was really good and our advisor Andrea was fabulous We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and lunch at the winery, Susanna was our server at lunch and was great. All three meals were extraordinary, Mario our server at dinner was very knowledgeable of all the entrees, portions were generous. It has been a very long time since I have been so impressed with every aspect of our stay. This a 5 star expierence.
