My husband and I arrived to the San Diego Estates and we were pleasantly surprised on how large and clean the place was. We had a 2 bedroom suite, there was plenty of drawer space, the closets were large, the beds were very comfortable. I was very concern on how the beds would feel, but to my surprise again (nothing like sleeping on a good mattress). The Kitchen had everything we needed, as we enjoyed cooking our own food. We also used the electric barbeque grill, which was very clean, The only issue I had was the people above us in the upstairs unit were loud, I think they had a child that like to run, but it did not last all night. The pool was wonderful and the spa was nice as well, I enjoyed watching a movie under the stars at the pool as well. The golf course was very nice and the cost was very reasonable, the tennis courts were always available, the winery we visited was awesome and the people of Ramona are very friendly, we met so many nice people. Now I do have to admit that as we were driving up the winding road to get to the estates. I was thinking that maybe we made a mistake, because it was dark and we felt like we were going to no mans land. but after getting a good night sleep, we woke up to see how lovely Ramona really was. Overall I would come back again, I would just pack lightly ( my husband and I over packed. great place, staff was very nice.

Room tip: it may be more quiet upstairs, but be ready to climb stairs.

Very spacious accommodation and beautiful area although a good 40 minute drive to San Diego. Great facilities, tennis, table tennis and lovely pool area and all included in cost. Accommodation slightly tired but lovely and clean. We really enjoyed our stay

We just spent a week at the San Diego Country Estates Resort. It is a beautiful spot, wooded, quiet and relaxing, with excellent facilities for several sports and lovely units that are well equipped and nicely decorated. Its only downside is that it is quite remote, reached by either Hwy. 78 or Hwy.67 off the 5 or 15 Fwy., so once you're there you probably won't want to wander very far. The resort is about 10 miles outside Ramona, which is a small, old fashioned town. Up Hwy. 78 about 22 miles farther is charming Julian, and you can also make a day trip to the Palomar Observatory. We escaped one day to La Jolla and it was a two-hour drive each way. Fortunately, there are some pretty good restaurants in the area, both in and around Ramona and Julian, so you can eat well.

Room tip: There are no elevators, so depending on your needs, you may want to request a ground floor unit in advance.

Visited for two nights, checkin was very efficient, with very friendly and helpful staff. It's a short drive from check in to our accommodation, a very spacious one bedroom apartment on the second floor. All amenities are provided, including a BBQ on the balcony area. It is clean and tidy, and while we were there, quiet. It is a large estate with a mixture of residential homes, timeshare guests and visitors. It is nicely landscaped, with numerous tennis courts and several small swimming pools, although we found these to be packed with families and children ( inevitably, and this isn't a bad thing, it just meant there was no opportunity to a actually swim ). Getting around by car is easy, although it is a long drive to shops and restaurants, in Ramona. We used it as a base to get to Julian and Borrego Springs, and it was nice to come back to a relaxing, quiet apartment at the end of a trip. I'm not sure I'd be so keen on the area when it is fully occupied, parking may be difficult and the facilities would be pretty packed, and I'm not sure it would be quite so calm and quiet. Very enjoyable stay though, it's a lovely part of California.
