This is a large and lovely country club feeling property in a great location near St Helena. The rooms are spread around the enormous grounds, some with views, some with less privacy -- so I would choose carefully -- you might like to be set in the woods, or you may prefer to be closer to the faciities. The pool was big and very fresh and clear; but the spa is small with no real "day room" to relax in -- apparently, a new spa is being built (I did not try a spa treatment, but heard they were excellent). The service was attentive and friendly throughout. Our suite was very pleasant, with a nice sitting porch and gas fireplace that we used at night -- but we did hear noise from the attached unit early in the morning.
Do have the concierge book some of the smaller, more interesting wineries for tours and tastings in advance of your stay -- these book up, and the commercial wine tasting places off the main roads are crowded and not generally as interesting. I wish we'd gone to see some of the smaller, more unique artisan vineyards.
There were nice bikes to rent at the resort, which we used, but beware -- the intense traffic on the main road isn't bike friendly, though the terrain is flat and the views are lovely.
