“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

This winery is the best! The setting and location are beautiful. The staff at the wine tasting are fun, ask for Jen and you'll have a great experience. The villas are pretty, cool and stylish. Dinner? Amazing, and top it all off with bananas foster for breakfast. You may end up wondering if you are in heaven...

There is a lot of competition in this new wine country so I would say shop wisely. The packages they offer are fairly priced but once you get there things are less affordable. Dining options are is bad but they are a bit pricey. I managed to gain wait while not have a meal that was stand out in the least...never a good sign. The room we had was very nice, clean, modern and comfortable. The patio was nice for warm summer evenings. The layout of the facility was a bit confusing and could have benefited from better signage. The key card system has issues so getting the card reset and having difficulties getting into spa, pool and your room could be a challenge from time to time. This is a smoke free campus so If you enjoy a cigar now and then I would look elsewhere. In the end just nice enough.

We were "forced" out of our house by termites! We needed to be gone for a couple of nights (for our house to be tented) & came up with the idea of staying here. We had a villa & were truly amazed with its size and furnishings. We did a little wine tasting at South Coast (thanx Gregg) & enjoyed relaxing by the pool. It was quiet & relaxing. We will definitely return in the near future!

Celebrated our 20th anniversary. First off, Kayla at front desk was friendly and started our stay with a smile. Then we walked into our Villa, very nice set up, great little area outside with the grapes hanging from the vines. The bathroom, beautiful shower, dual heads baby and a jet tub...forgetaboutit.....then wine tasting....hook, line and sinker, we joined the wine club....Greg saw the opening and went for the kill, nice....the pool, Jacuzzi area nice place....had couples massage, sparkling wine and chocolates....all great. Dinner at the Vineyard Restaurant, good...special of night ran out of shrimp, no worries...gave me 2 beautiful scallops, with the Ribeye-one mistake didn't mention the 20th anniversary or throw in dessert-fumbled it there...Mimosa breakfast simple, good, but Management, don't charge for the coffee with the breakfast vouchers, breakfast should be all taken care of....Overall excellent stay for a great getaway...oh and be sure to visit old town Temecula, great way to spend a few hours also!!

Awesome weekend away with my wife! We stayed in one of the Syrah rooms in the new hotel building. The hotel is about a year and a half old and is in excellent shape - it still smells new. The room was huge, with a nice sitting area and a comfortable king bed. The bathroom was clean, tiled and classy. Towels, linens, carpets, everything was clean and fresh.

We spent several hours down at the Grapeseed Spa pool lounging. While we didn't indulge in any spa services, we enjoyed the ambiance around the pool and jacuzzi.

We ate two dinners at The Vineyard Rose Restaurant, both exceptional. The first night I did the prime rib, which had a wonderful crust and was perfectly cooked rare. The second night my wife and I did the Chef's Table Dinner, which is about $135 a person but included five substantial courses, excellent wine pairing and personal attention by the chef as well. We were completely satisfied with this dining experience as well - the food was expertly prepared and exactly what we were hoping for. I highly recommend the Chef's Table Dinner and will be doing it again next time we visit.

I'm looking forward to another weekend away with my wife here. It's a perfect place for a romantic getaway, and would be a blast with friends as well. Highly recommend!

Nice rooms, very helpful staff, food was good although the restaurant setting could have been much better. Wine is what this place is all about, great tasting room, great wine, staff really knew their stuff and were happy to share their knowledge and entusiasm. We rolled in a morning hot air balloon flight which was simply awsome. Temecula is not Tuscany but it's getting closer.

Recently stayed at the South Coast Winery for a night after a day of wine tasting throughout the region. We did not dine in the restaurant or use any of the facilities so this review is strictly for the rooms.

We stayed in one of the deluxe villas and it was outstanding! It seems to have been updated recently, very spacious and clean. I would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend the deluxe villas
