Let me get my ONE negative comment out of the way first: other reviewers are correct when they say that this resort is not in the most ideal area of Napa. It IS across from a corporate park, and it is not close to downtown. That said, everything else was great, and I actually would not have WANTED to stay in downtown Napa - it was quieter out at Bello Vino and Meritage.
The room was beautiful. My husband and I stayed in a one-bedroom condo unit in the Merlot building. Bathroom was beautiful, shower was great (although somewhat low water pressure), jacuzzi tub was beautiful, kitchen was nice and fully-stocked, bed was comfortable, fireplace was enjoyable. We were very happy with the room. We didn't have any problems with noise as other guests have said they have, but occasionally we could hear people walking above us (we were on the first floor). We got really good sleep here. The only problem was finding parking, but luckily there was complimentary valet when we couldn't find any parking reasonably close to our room.
I was originially considering booking at the Meritage, but was somewhat scared off by some of the negative reviews. Although I'm glad we stayed at the Vino Bello and enjoyed the full kitchen, I think my fears of the Meritage were unfounded (Vino Bello and Meritage share the same concierage and check-in desk). The staff was very concerned about service, and everyone was very friendly. The lobby of the Meritage was gorgeous, as was the restaurant Siena.
The grounds of the Meritage/Vino Bello are also lovely. Lots of outdoor sitting places with fires burning in pits and fireplaces at night - lovely! We really wanted to take advantage of the cave spa and cave tasting room, but we just simply didn't have time - it looked gorgeous, though!
We had absolutely no problem getting to and from downtown Napa with the Meritage shuttle bus. It was very convenient.
The complimentary bottle of wine in our room was appreciated (even though Moscato isn't my favorite).
Overall, I was very satisifed. I would stay here again, and I would most definitely take advantage of the spa next time!
