“Best food, beautiful villas,shame about that odor.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We enjoy eating here, the food is good and prices surprisingly reasonable. We have spent a night in their villas and they are very cozy and comfortable.
If only the owner would do something about the terrible smell as you walk in and out of the wine tasting area. Whenever we take friends it is awful.
They have been told about the problem but??????!!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Hotel and services very good. However, they did not mention that major construction was going on either at time of reservation or at check-in. Due to the construction noise,I asked for another room.They tried to up-sell to a more expensive room or move to an inferior room. At the suggestion of the check out clerk, I wrote to management and did not receive an acknowledgement.

My wife and I stayed for two nights on a TravelZoo deal. Nice, spacious room, but a few problems with the room--the first problem required a room change, the second by a visit from maintenance. One or both could/should have been dealt with before our arrival.

Further, someone had left a coffee pot, etc., from room service outside of their room, and it stayed there for 24 hours, even after maid service had cleaned our room.

In spite of the problems, we enjoyed our stay. It just could have been better...

Room Tip: Mountain-view rooms are at the perimeter and offer more privacy along with the view.

My Husband and I stayed here the other day. Wow!!! Beautiful!!! We loved our Villa by the pool. It was very large, and so romantic with the fireplace and jacuzzi tub and a wonderful bottle of wine. They thought of everything from coffee in the room to q-tips and bath salts. The bed was also very comforable. The grounds are very nice too.
We did go to the wine tasting room and yes it was crowded but that is to be expected this time of year. The woman who helped us was great!
We had a wonderful time and will be back!

The wine tasting is not cheap, and they were decent. I would not say awesome, just decent. The tasting room was crowded, and the servers were not interested in chatting. I would not recommend buying the wine at the shop - i found MANY of the same for cheaper at the grocery stores in the area. The outside area is quite beautiful, but inside was like a zoo.

The reason this winery is running a great deal on Groupon is because they are under construction. My vineyard view villa faces an ugly unfinished 7 story building. And that view comes with the sound of a grinding cement mixer outside my window (Villa 2303). I don't deny anyone the right to better their property or expand, but 1) Don't run a groupon during this time, it's just cheap and mean and 2) Tell me when I book so I have the option not to be subjected to this. I called and complained and got a free breakfast, but would rather have peace and quiet. I wish I could attach an audio file so you all could hear how loud it is.

Room Tip: Don't believe the "vineyard view".

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...
