4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is a lovely place to spend a weekend. Our king villa was cozy and quiet, the grounds were beautiful and the service was excellent. Even if you're not a big wine taster, it's worth a trip for the hotel itself. We were able to walk through the vineyards and orange groves with a beautiful scenic vista of Temecula. The stay includes a free bottle of wine in your room. We're not big red wine drinkers, so we asked to have ours exchanged for white. No problem! A busboy delivered a new bottle within half an hour. The hot water could have been hotter and the bath towels a little bigger, but those were my only complaints, and minor ones at that!

Room Tip: All the rooms have private patios with hedges surrounding them. We had a vineyard view; it was lovel...

My wife and I stayed Friday through Sunday and had an incredible time. The resort is beautiful, the wine tasting was great. We did a private tour of the facility, got to meet one of the wine makers and tasted some really good wine. (They really do a nice job on the Red Wine) we bought close to two cases. Our room or Villa was spacious with a private patio that overlooked a small vineyard. My wife was having coffee out on the patio on Saturday morning and was delighted to see the Hot Air Balloons floating over the patio. The room it self, was nicely apppointed, roman style jacuzzi tub for two and separate shower, comfortable king size bed, refrigeration, and a bottle of their Syrah compliments of the hotel. Dining was just as good at the Vineyard Rose, We ate dinner their two nights in a row, and breakfast before we left Sunday. Highly recommended, and we shall return.

Room Tip: They are called Villas, nicely appointed, private patio and within walking distance to the wine tast...

We stayed at the Resort in 11/2012 and the hotel is the best in Temecula. The Villas are spacious and the food at the hotel is wonderful. The wine there is also very good and they have won several awards for there wines. We also went to a few winery tours in the area which was also very informative. Temecula Old Town is always a good way to walk around and have a bite to eat. This was a great weekend trip!

South Coast Winery is a great way to relax and spend a few days. Just got back from a sales retreat there and the property is very nice. All of the rooms are "villa" style so you don't have to worry about noisy neighbors above you. Grounds are well kept and there is a nice pool and a fitness center. If there is a downside, it is that you are inTemecula. Temecula is nice but it is not the same as Santa Barbara or Nappa. That being said, you can still find some nice wine tasting (make sure to visit Brier Winery. The menu at the restaurant is a bit limiting and when I asked for a burger they couldn't do it. But there is an In-n-Out right down the street. All in all I would bring the wife there for a weekend getaway in the future. Probably not the kids.

My husband and I, stayed in a King Villa for one night in October. The rooms are huge, with small refrigerator, fireplace, small patio , huge bathroom with jaccuzi tub, and sitting area. THe resort is beautifully maintained..Customer service was top notch..Just wish we could have stayed longer. Would highly recommend the balloon package for a special once in a life time memory..We did eat at the restaurant, very nice..food is good..not great, and the service was excellent. The views from your villa are breath taking..Hope to go back..!!

We only stayed one night at the South Coast Winery for a conference my husband was attending. We will certainly return! Every hotel room is a private villa with a little back patio right in the vineyards. The villas are tastefully decorated in light colors and furniture in dark cherry tones, with vines hand painted on accent walls. They have very high ceilings and are very spacious and extremely clean. The bathroom is immense and has double sinks, a separate multi-jet shower stall and a Jacuzzi tub, also immaculately clean.( See photos)
Our experience at the tasting room was wonderful. Our pourer, Jennifer, was knowledgeable and generous in serving some delicious wines AND we met some very nice, friendly locals who turned us on to a wonderful restaurant in Temecula ( Gourmet Italia). You know a tasting room is a good one when the locals are spending their money there, right?
The only thing I found a little strange was the comparatively tiny office where they have the guests check-in. It gives an odd first impression that things will be cramped, as there is basically no room for the guests checking in and out. This is obviously not so, everything is very spacious here except this tiny lobby.

South Coast Winery Resort and Spa is an amazing place. My wife and I go every year after Thanksgiving to relax and luxuriate. Every hotel room is a villa with vineyard views and convenient location to either the pool/spa areas or to the restaurant and tasting room. The service is very high quality and professional and the rooms are kept immaculately clean and well maintained.

The winery is easily Temecula's best for both quality and selection. At most other wineries you go you get 5 tastes of whatever they tell you they're pouring, but at South Coast you get to choose from every wine they make (and it's dozens) guided by the most knowledgeable pourers I've met in Temecula.

The spa is luxury at its finest. Tremendous selection of services and skilled therapists make every guest feel like pampered royalty. And, I must say, it is really nice to be at a winery and get a complimentary glass of house champagne once your service/treatment is done. The spa and pool menus for drinks and snacks are perfect for relaxation and luxuriating by the pool.

The Vineyard Rose Restaurant is elegant, beautiful, and always cooks up excellent quality meat and seafood. And the wine list is extensive, naturally, and very reasonably priced.

This is a destination resort for sure and worth the trip on its on, but you certainly should also just stop in for a tasting if you're only in Temecula for the day.
