“One Night Review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Spent one night mid week. We stayed in one of the villa. The villa was clean and well appointed. A large bathroom which is great when sharing the room. Our air conditioner did not work even after the first call to the front desk. We ordered room service and watched a pay per view movie. Room service was prompt and our order was correct, but the onion soup was very salty and luke warm. Coconut shrimp small and overly cooked. I would stay again if it was a special price.

Hi jdkbeach,

Thank you for choosing South Coast Winery Resort & Spa and for taking the time to post a review of your stay. We are always delighted to read about the impression our guests take home with them, and we are delighted to see you enjoyed your 1 night mid-week stay with us. We are so glad you found your private villa to be clean and well appointed and the luxurious bathroom to be spacious.

Please be assured that we value every comment received from our guests, as this provides us with direction for continued improvement. We hope you'll visit us again soon to enjoy another stay in Southern California's Temecula Valley Wine Country.

Cheers!

I love my stay at South Coast Winery Resort and Spa, I wanted to rest and have fun at the same time and I found it here, we have wine tasting during the day and at night relax at the jacuzzi and have a great dinner at the restaurant.
I stayed at the hotel and the room was very clean, the furniture was new, the bed so comfortable and with an excellent view. They have great service and the food was excellent I will be there next year again or as soon as I can.

Room Tip: Choose hotel rooms if you are looking for a vineyard view.

We loved out stay at South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. We wanted to get away and find a place that was peaceful and where we could relax. We found it! We will definitely be back. The room was so private (we have a villa) and the pool area was my favorite place to unwind. The meditative spa music that was pumped into the pool area was serene!

The restaurant was divine, I wish I could go back.

We asked for white wine in our room as it was a complimentary Anniversary present to us (very classy), but there was red waiting. They immediately came to switch it for us which was very nice of them.

The only odd thing was a terrible odor floating around the entrance to the gift shop. There must have been a plumbing issue (hopefully temporary). Other than this, it was great!

Room Tip: Ask for a map of the villas first and get one closer to the spa/pool! However, the walk through the...

About an hour and a half drive, a world away! Had a lovely afternoon, evening and morning at this resort. Stayed in one of the villas rather than the hotel, which we really enjoyed. Nice large villa with first class appointments. Didn't have time for a spa treatment, next time, but hubby said workout room was great and I loved the pool early in the morning watch the hot air balloons floating g over head as I swam. Jennifer, in the tasting room, was outstanding. What exceptional knowledge of the wines, along with a friendly and fun personality, will return just to taste, and buy, wine from her! Dinner in the restaurant was outstanding, had some great wine for half price on Monday night, made dinner even better. Can't wait to go again!

Room Tip: We were in villa 11, A, quiet, nice.

really enjoyed the place. employees very courteous & helpful. the villa we stayed at was decently kept. the A/C was extremely loud & the matress too soft for our taste. the furniture is a bit old. the restaurant has excellent food & good service.

Travelled on business and stayed here as the standard Marriott location was booked. The room was very comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the vineyard. The complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch and I appreciated the Kuerig coffee maker in the room. Restaurant food and service was very good. The front desk staff was friendly and accomodating but didn't find that they had quite the caliber or professionalism that I think this resort is trying to brand themselves as. The construction in the gym was not quite finished and there were no towels or water. The room is not the ideal set up for working out of as there was no outlet near the table and no desk. All this said, the location and facility is lovely and I will be back. Enjoyed my stay.

We spent one night on a package deal that included a tour thru wine country. We thought everything was great....helpful staff, comfortable beds, but especially enjoyed the "bungalow" layout literally in the vineyard. Great stay!!
