“Nice resort in Napa, with one or two limitations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Stayed two nights in August 2013. A nice resort with lots of amenities that we did not get a chance to use as we were busy touring the area. Room was a good size and clean. Welcome package included a bottle of wine, two bottles of water and free wi-fi. There is a $20 resort fee though. Our package also included breakfast which was made to order and quite good. However, it was pricey and if you are paying for breakfast there are no other options close by.

It is about 10 minutes to downtown Napa and there is a shuttle service to take you to restaurants in the evening.

There are two concierge stations and I spoke to a couple of the concierges, but neither was particularly helpful. One was more interested in getting me to sign up for a some kind of vacation or time-share session. The other just gave me the most basic of tourist ideas that you can get out of any of the guidebooks.

Upon checkout, we found that we were charged for breakfasts, which were included in our package, but a manager on duty sorted that out quickly.

Location is a little drawback here, you actually go through an office park to get to the resort.
Plus, everything is at least five miles away.

Other than that, a nice spot.

Best couple get away, very peaceful. The spa is spectacular. We had a room over looking the vineyard and it was lovely. Would definitely recommend. Is was our first vacation since we had our boys and it was well worth it.

I recently hosted my birthday celebration with 25 of my closet friends at The Meritage Resort and Spa. The event was a year in planning but the staff at The Meritage Resort really made the difference after we all arrived. The property did an amazing job no matter what the outlet. From the sales team, front desk staff, to the staff in Siena and Crush - the service was fantastic at every encounter. The spa was one of the most peaceful and relaxing spas I have ever visited. And Rosemary at the Concierge Desk can arrange just about anything you want to do in Napa. The accommodations were well appointed and the views were amazing. Our enitre group was mostly hospitality executives and event planners - if a hotel can impress us then you know they are good. Kudos to The Mertiage and thanks for making my birthday so special.

My husband and I went to the spa at the Meritage during our recent mini moon in Napa! We had a fabulous time and the staff was amazing! The spa is also relatively affordable and offers a number of great packages and deals to take advantage of during the week!

The spa itself is amazing! It is built in a cave and is so relaxing and peaceful. The facilities are great and as I mentioned earlier the staff is top notch!

If you are in or around this area definitely go to the Meritage!

We recently visited Napa only a day and had the pleasure of being at this great hotel. The staff was very friendly, the views were amazing and the bed was very comfortable and clean. This is a definite top notch hotel, a step above all rest. Spectacular!

Overall, I wouldn't recommend staying here. There were highlights here and there, but overall our experience was less than satisfactory.

As for the good parts - the rooms are decent and well taken care of. The resort offers a shuttle service to and from downtown Napa at regular intervals in the evenings which comes in handy. The pool area is nice, and we had a decent visit to the spa.

If it weren't for the horrific service at both restaurants/bars, the "wool over the eyes" techniques used by resort management in attempts to sell time shares through bribes of discounts to the spa, or the blatant begging of tips by the valets and others, the visit would've been far more enjoyable.

I should have known something was amiss when we got a discount for using a Visa or MC to pay for the visit. Nothing is classy about bribing your guests with payment methods.

Our advice - spend an extra few dollars per night to stay somewhere smaller. The Meritage is too big for these folks to handle.

From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out our stay at this property was perfect.

The grounds, lobby, pool, cave, rooms, night club/bowling alley, fire pits, lounge areas, coffee shop..everything was just lovely.

Our room was in building 4 facing the vineyard. Gorgeous bedding, views, bathrooms, patio. The bed was comfy the shower was roomy and the bedtime chocolates delicious.

We spent three nights here and on the last day I was sad we had to leave. We will be back and will be staying here again.

Side note - Paoletti vineyard is the best place we visited. It is Napa's best kept hidden secret.
