“Wine Wednesday.....nothing to whine about”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

The new Wine Wednesdays with wine tasting from 6 to 8pm and a special discount at the hotel with a bottle of wine, made for the perfect mid-week anniversary celebration!
The South Coast Resort room with jacuzzi tub and a patio facing the vineyard,was beautifully furnished. The restaurant, pool, and spa, along with the evening wine tasting, made it a truly
memorable anniversary. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: The first floor of the hotel has jacuzzi tubs and have patios facing the vineyard

This property is quite beautiful. Everywhere you go, there are grape vines... you can quite literally walk out the door and there are beautiful vines all over. We're staying in a villa at the moment and it is quite large and it's nice to have more seclusion over their standard rooms; however I will say that it definitely looks like they've been around for quite some time. Everything is clean, no worries... but their jacuzzi tub looks like its from the 80's... it isn't porcelain, it's that beige plastic so it looks dirty even though it isn't. They could definitely spruce up the paint or the wall paper here, as well as the curtains to give this place an updated look. I think this place is great, but as a 27 year old walking into this place... I feel like I've aged 15 years.

Aside from the outdated decor and in room amenities, this place really is quite beautiful and very much relaxing.

Room Tip: The villa's are really nice because of the privacy; however, make sure to ask for one that is fu...

Hi Chrissy K.
Thank you for your 4-star review of South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. We appreciate you choosing our beautiful winery resort for your recent trip to Temecula Valley Wine Country, and so glad you enjoyed the gorgeous vineyard in such close proximity to your private villa. The villas here at South Coast Winery were carefully designed to evoke the old-world styles and rustic charm of an authentic countryside villa found in the wine regions of Province or Tuscany. For those who prefer a more contemporary style and design, we offer up a three story, 50-unit, all suite found hotel tower set in the midst of the vineyards, equally spacious & luxurious with a modern-twist. Whether you prefer modern chic or countryside charm, we want you to know South Coast strives to provide the highest standards of excellence to each and every one of our visitors. We look forward to seeing you during your next visit to Temecula Valley Wine Country!

We had a three night stay in one of the villas at South Coast for a business wine tasting event. The villa rooms are delightful with nice patios looking over the vineyard and they are very comfortable and all with gas fireplaces for the cool evenings. The people were great, the pool area is nice, the spa is excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. We had a winery tour which was excellent and South Coast produces some enjoyable wines. Their restaurant, Vineyard Rose, is also very good. Definitely worth a return visit.

Room Tip: Request a villa with a vineyard view.

Starting the minute we walked in (room was ready 4 hours early) the experience was an 11 on a scale from 1-10. The service and professionalism were superb. The atmosphere and being able to get up close was the best we have ever experienced and we have traveled to many places over the years. Another positive for us was this place is right in our back yard! We live in Menifee and Temecula Wine Country is roughly about 25 minutes away. We did the behind the scenes wine tour and our guide (Tony) was the best. Informative and funny at the same time. A lot of knowledge along with his peer Sonia.
The food and wine that we had was over the top. I can't believe that being here in South County Inland Empire we haven't been here before. Our room in the main building was the best we have ever been in. All modern electronic stuff (fireplace had a remote control with about 15 different settings) that would not turn on until you place your key card into a special slot for electrical to work. Not only a perfect room but takes our environment into account as well. Never have seen that before. It just seems that the entire resort was built with the guest in mind and not built with cutting corners in mind. The bathroom, well I want that bathroom in my house but I won't describe it. You need to go and stay to see it for yourself.
We are going back so we can enjoy the Spa next time. Oh, we joined the wine club. Couldn't resist.
Anyway, that was our experience. I am sure when you all try it out for yourselves you will hopefully have the same type of exceptional visit.

Room Tip: They have private bungalows that seemed great but we did not stay in one.

We just spent 3 days at South Coast and loved it. We got a villa, and book 2 separate online special packages during our 3 days stay, the luxury package for the first 2 days, and the Carter Estates Wine Package for the 3rd day. This allows you to get more for your money s the packages are bundles with extras like massages, lunches, breakfasts, wine tours, wine tastings, spa and gift shop discounts, etc which complement your stay and makes it just a tad but more expensive than a regular room but with a lot of extras included that make it hundreds less expensive in the long run. The villa was great, as was the restaurant, pool, wine tour, tasting, and spa. I was a little under the weather one day, but the massage brought me right back to life. Thanks South Coast for an awesome getaway!

Stayed at South Coast in a villa in the vineyards. Wow what can I say....the whole experience from start to finish was awesome. Upon arriving we decided to do a tasting before we checked in. Matt was our bartender and he was great. We then checked into our villa which was beautiful and the patio was in the vineyard. Our package included breakfast each morning in the restaurant which was also excellent. We used the spa facilities and had hot bamboo massages. The spa facilities are beautiful and the massage was beyond great...thanks Anna. South Coast is a great location for being able to tour all the wineries and also close to the old town area. Our package also included a case of wine as we checked out. What more could we ask for. All in all a wonderful time at a wonderful winery.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and get a villa with a view of the vineyards. Our villa was near the pool and...

This was a great place to go for wine and relaxation. The resort is huge and beautiful. The rooms were large, bathrooms huge and nicely appointed. Bed was very comfortable. We didn't use the spa because of limited time but I would definitely try it next time. We had breakfast and dinner on the restaurant patio and it was lovely. Service was great. Will definitely go back!
