We stayed at this resort on our honeymoon in July. We had booked an avaerage room as it was peak time of year and prices were quite expensive. I had informed them on booking (6 months in advance) that it was our honeymoon but thought nothing more of it. On check in, a friendly receptionist knew we were on our honeymoon and upgraded us to one of the new suites. It was fantastic!. After checking into our room the hotel sent a complimentary bottle of champagne with a congratulations card. What a lovely touch!.
The complex was exquisitely clean, light and airy. The pool side was very pleasant and if you managed to order your drinks at the outside bar as opposed to a waiter serving you at your lounger, you had free refills!! (good tip to remember). The bar staff were very friendly and keen to chat. The cafe area near the car park was a great place to pop for a croissant and coffee mid morning.They also have a sports bar with bowling alleys which were great fun.
The resort has a free bus transfer to Napa central which has fantastic places to eat and drink. They also give you a contact number to ring and they will pick you whenever you want.
The spa and wine tasting are located in a little cave/grotto. The spa was quite expensive and so did not venture there but the wine tasting was very enjoyable. The only negative point was they did not have enough staff and made judgements about whether you were worth while investing their time in. While we were there 2 members of staff were paying attention to an american couple who ended up not buying anything however we spent £100 on wine. Hey ho - should not judge a book by its cover!!
Overall a very thoughful modern complex. I would definitely stay there again.
