“great stay”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Even thought we were there during the recent Pineaple express rains.. we had a wonderful stay. rooms were very clean and more that comfortable. Location between Sonoma and the lower Napa valley made it easy to go out and hit the wine trail and spend the day tasting. Will definatly be back!

Room Tip: Rental car is a must.

This is a great place to stay, and I've stayed here many times. Most recently we reserved both the 1 BR suite and the adjoining studio, and hosted a small family reunion. We were able to cook dinner for everyone in the spacious kitchen, and everyone had a place to sit at either the large dining table, the bar area, or the patio dining set outside. Beautiful heated pool area that also has a kids' water play area and kids' pool, hot tub, fire pit, and outdoor BBQ's. Newly added lounge with bowling, another bar in the lobby, restaurant, coffee shop, ice cream, etc. Everything is top-notch at this resort ... very nice place with professional, friendly and helpful staff. We'll be back soon!

We just came back from a mini vacation in Napa. I booked this hotel through priceline and due to off season the price was very attractive. We originally were booked into their regular room, but upon request were upgraded to one bedroom suite. What can I say - it was just perfect. Everything from huge bathroom, hot tub in the bedroom and full kitchen to the fireplace and the balcony.
We went with a small baby (read: brought a lot of baby stuff with us) and still had plenty of room.
I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who is looking for upscale vacation time spent in the heart of Napa Valley. Swimming pool, SPA, wine tasting right on the property, great views. They even have their own bowling alley! I would definitely want to come back here.

This is a nice time share resort with great amenities. When you check in the concierge staffs are very knowledgable and pleasantly spend time with you for your vacation suggestions from wineries to restaurants choices. I am little confused with the welcome wine bottle and water bottles which only for the first night check for the wine bottle and refill 2 water bottles daily and not sure about room cleaning either only middle of the week or daily room cleaning. We went to the sale presentation it was quick and no pressure to buy more as we are the Diamond Resort owner. There is wine tasting Trinitas on location by Meritage. I would recommend this resort for friends.

When I read reviews from people who stay at the same place on the same dates, and have totally different experiences, I always wonder how the reviews can vary so much.
Overall, this is a lovely resort with a few issues.
Check in was smooth, and staff was courteous. Maintenance issue was dealt with promptly, and we were called back to check on it. Our room was beautifully decorated.
As some other reviews mentioned, the walls are thin. We heard every sound from next door, and some from the hall, too.
My biggest issue was the ventilation system. There were two annoying,frequent intermittent sounds. One was a humming/whining sound that my usually oblivious spouse even noticed, and the other was a throbbing, kind of bass speaker noise.
We liked the location. It took 7 minute to get into Napa, and was that much closer when we went to Sonoma.
We think the $20.00 tasting fee at their tasting room is too high. We found other wineries with very good wines for less money. Try Cline and Jacuzzi. Technically, Sonoma, but only about 15 minutes away, with free tasting. They are directly across the road from each other. Jacuzzi also has free olive oil and vinegar tasting.
Parking is a bit of an issue.
Another reviewer who stayed there recently, referred to a $20.00 resort charge. We didn't have that, but did have a $35.00 "occupancy tax". Really? Call it something else, please. A tax to occupy a hotel? What else would you do in a hotel, but occupy it?

Room Tip: If you want to spend time outside, and you have a choice, not downstairs. Upstairs rooms have a balc...

Everything was wonderful, from the check in where the amenities are explained in detail. We loved the complimentary wine in the suite. The spa is beyond description, You just have to visit to experience. I had the best massage of my life, sorry I did not retain the persons name who gave it to me. My friend also said the same about her massage, so you probably cannot go wrong no matter who gives the services, all are equally great. The restaurant is top notch, food and the service. I had the homemade pizza one night. Don't miss the oatmeal at breakfast, with cranberries, blueberries and nuts . Tour the vineyards, its just beautiful and a good workout going up the steps and thru the vineyard. There is something for everyone and its only about thirty minutes from downtown Napa. We had the best time at the Open Market, you will enjoy the food and the shopping!
All of this if you can tear yourself away from the beautiful suites, everything especially the bed and bath facilities are luxurious. Our friends usually stay at the Ritz and stated that they were more impressed with Vino Bella!

As time share owners, it's nice to have a place in napa. Vino Bello is a nice hotel, clean and located well. They have a few minor issues to work out..our room was never fully stocked with waters and supplies. Our friends stayed down the hall and had fresh waters daily. The biggest problem was the complimentary shuttle. It's a wonderful service and when operating smoothly is great. However, in our 4 night stay, we encountered annoyances 3 times. Usually it was just waiting for people we were picking up at restaurants..they called for a pick up and then were late...so we had to keep circling around and waiting for like 15-20 min! Do it 2 times and you're now 40 min waiting on a shuttle to go back to the hotel. But the worst was one night the shuttle driver called off work, so we were told, and the shuttle became a van that took 6 ppl..we had been waiting to get on and people kind of cut their way in so we did not get on. The guy at the bell desk said, "sorry..you can get a cab".. I explained we had been there waiting..he even saw us sitting there, and said it was just too bad that the normal shuttle wasn't running. A cab is about 30-40$ one way to downtown napa..I asked for a manager who was busy at the time..a cab showed up and it was a limo style one that was 45$..our friends were so annoyed that they just paid so we could make our dinner reservation. When we came back..via the van/shuttle that took forever I went to the front desk again and got the manager on duty. He agreed after a more aggressive conversation to refund us the fare..not the tip. Then upon check out, we found out it was a set amount that didn't even cover the whole thing! I think that's just terrible business period and as a timeshare owner, it's even more annoying. I hope they don't penalize customers in the future because a driver calls in or whatever..we pay good money to be there and business should always run as advertised, with out customers knowing who is calling in and short staffed, etc. it's not our problem..we are on vacation, not at work.

Room Tip: Get a top floor or you will hear everything
