“Pretty good, but a few bits short of a 5 star.”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We stayed at the Vino Bello for 2 nights. Overall we found the rooms to be clean and comfortable, and the staff very friendly. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and the deep soaking tub in the room is quite nice.

Managed by the Meritage next door, the hotel feels a bit less loved in comparison. Concierge and the front desk were all located inside the Meritage, which means a short walk (outside) over. If you're torn between the two hotels (different ownership, same management), that might be a deciding factor. Most entertainment facilities are shared.

A few short comings. 1. Shampoo was not replenished at the end of day one, with the hard California water we actually ran out. 2. Sound proofing isn't great, you'll hear the more lively chats of our neighbors. 3. Although you're charged $20 per day as a resort fee for wifi and parking, the comp wine only appears on day one, feels like you're being punished for longer stays. 4. no instructions at all for the in room washer/dryer, for all my experience i couldn't figure out why the dryer wasn't starting.

This review is just of the Timeshare Presentation, not an actual stay at the hotel.
We did go to one of the Master/Presidential/Suites & found the accomidations very pleasant.
It is attached to a very attractive winery & you can join part of a winery group as well.
The presentation was good, no real pressure, pleasant but as we already own a different timeshare group, we did not feel the need to buy into Shell Vacation Club.

I imagine that if you were a big time wine drinker/taster or not from the local area, this would be a great little vacation spot. Rooms were very nice, new, full kitchen, lock-off second bedroom available... pretty standard stuff for the nicer timeshare type rooms.

We received our presents which were nice & worth the trip.

Convenient, easy to get too and a great place to land after a long day on he wine trial! Good workout facility, restaurants and shuttles to head into town for food & drink.

We will definitely be back to this place.

This is a beautiful property with lots of amenities. We stayed in a couple of hotels in this area and this one had the most amenities by far. The rooms are large and have kitchens. The heated pools are a nice touch. All of the staff we interacted with was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were spotless. We found the rooms to be a little on the loud side.

Resort is absolutely stunning. One of the most beautiful I've gone to. The restaurant must be good because it was booked solid every night which made finding a parking place a nightmare each evening. I prefer not to have cleaning service come each day but try as I could to get them to comply was impossible thus, my ipod with earphones disappeared before I left plus I could tell they were using my lotions. :( The wine they left in the frig was excellent. I had hoped for more activites than just visiting wineries but there is nothing else other then going to San Francisco.

Stayed here with my family in August 2013. Resort is nice, but not really suited for kids. I understand that Napa isn't usually a trip for kids, but we thought there would be some activities for the kids at the resort. They have DVDs but they have a very, very limited selection and almost all of the ones that we tried to rent out were missing. They have 2 pools, but the one at the Meritage Hotel is only for adults. They have a bowling alley, but don't allow children after 7 pm. We also ran into numerous problems with appliances, air conditioning, hot water. Though they were minor inconveniences, it all added up to a not so memorable week.

Stayed here for a week with the family. There were plenty of problems during the stay and for this reason, I can only give it a 3 star rating. Some of the problems were as follows: 1. Refrigerator and freezer were not working properly, milk was not cold in the morning and food in the freezer thawed. This was fixed the next day. 2. Hot water was not working. Called maintenance and they were supposed to send an engineer to check the problem. No one ever came. Hot water was restored the next day. 3. Firepit at the timeshare was not working the entire week. When we called to have it turned on the first day we were there, they said they would send an engineer to turn it on. We waited 45 min and called twice , no one ever came.
