Our stay at the Vino Bello was absolutely wonderful. As this was our first trip to Napa, we relied heavily on reviews and felt satisfied with what we read about the property. Vino Bello is connected to the Meritage Resort, along with having Trinitas Winery and Vineyards at the back side. The resort is on the edge of town (Napa) but is extremely convenient to major highways, without all the town traffic. Its seems a lot of office buildings have popped up around but you can't see much, if any, of that. The pool area is fantastic....huge pool, hot tub, barbecue pits (nice ones) and everything is very secure. Keep your room key on you...you need it to gain entrance to everything. I also checked out the workout room and was surprised...its completely outfitted with lots of equipment. I didn't visit the spa but stuck my head inside and it was very luxurious.
Our room, a 1 Bedroom condo was absolutely gorgeous. Granite, nice furniture, up to date colors. Big, comfy bed with lots of covers and pillows. We had an in-room jacuzzi and a huge, spacious bathroom with double sinks and a two person shower. A full kitchen with brand new appliances (and a dishwasher) makes this place great for families who want to do a lot of their cooking at "home." A nice bottle of Trinitas Moscato was in the fridge, along with bottles of water. Daily cleaning service was another plus. Fresh towels and toiletries with a made-up bed on return were very satisfying.
We had some problems with our AC unit and didn't realize it till almost 11:30PM (we had cool nights). We called the front desk and maintenance showed up within 10 minutes. When he saw that he could not fix the problem, he brought over a portable AC unit, that worked just fine for us. Upon arrival the next day, the problem was fixed and our room was super cool.
There are concierges in the Meritage part of the resort and they can give you some great tips and ideas for Napa BUT there is one person here that gave us several recommendations that were "hits out of the park." His name is Kerin and he is the shuttle driver. Yes, there is evening shuttle service to Napa's restaurants and other places in town. Kerin is very knowledgable of the area; give him a few of your likes and he'll get you to the BEST place in Napa to satisfy those likes.
Don't forget to visit Trinitas Winery at the back. There are vineyards you can walk through and a tasting room in the cave portion. The Moscato was delicious; we also brought home some of the Zinfindales....not the spicy ones but the more "jammy" ones. Use those words and you'll be able to navigate the menu to what I liked.
We ate at the Siena restaurant; food was good but nothing exceptional. Service was very good.
The hotel will also take care of shipping any and all wine your purchase in Napa. Just bring it to the front desk, fill out some paperwork and payment info, and that's it! Our wine arrived within a week of us getting home, in perfect condition.
I have to say, also, the front desk and all staff at the Bello Vino/Meritage were extremely friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to return.
