“Perfect Place for Napa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

The hotel is more like condos with very special service. We had a one bedroom condo and have stayed twice. Its nice because we had a full kitchen so were able to cook healthy meals and also save some money vs eating out.

The location is perfect. You can get to any vineyard fairly quickly from here. Also a pretty view being next to Trinitas Vineyard.

Additionally, the hotel offers many amenities - bowling/billiards for a minimal fee, pool, hot tub, 2 gyms and even has a movie library for free and they even throw in free popcorn! They have onsite tastings, a nice bar, and restaurant.

The rooms are spotless and well maintained. Even my own home does not look nearly as clean/maintained as this. The service was exceptional. Everyone who works her must love their jobs because they were all very nice and upbeat without being fake or insincere.

We hope we will be able to come back and stay again in the future!

Terrific location for a first time explorer to wine region. Quick and easy from San Francisco and simple to get to Napa or Sonoma locations. This part of Meritage Resort is condo style with full kitchen (we had a one bedroom unit) yet all the features of the resort were right next door. Concierge Michelle is the best-remembers us and all of her suggestions have been super! Not too busy this week so maybe quieter than other reviewers have said- (I think so many tile floors make sounds louder) but still hard to get a parking space near our building. I would definitely stay here again.

The one-bedroom units are lovely--great design with a well equipped full kitchen, fireplace, wonderful jacuzzi tub and separate large glass-walled walk-in shower. I enjoy sitting on the room's private patio in the morning with beignets and a latte from the on-site Blend Cafe looking out at the private vineyard on the hillside. A great way to start the morning whether you brew your own in the room or get a cup-to-go.
They have a lovely spa and a nice tasting room with their Trinitas vineyard brand in the hillside cave under the vineyard.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. I find the concierge service to be knowledgeable about Napa.They suggested we try the relatively new Nakedwines in downtown Napa and this is a great new find--if I was up to being in a wine club--I would choose to support these different wine makers.

Room Tip: Choose a room favcing the hillside vineyards--but even parking lot side will be quiet.

Hello Leila M,

Your description of your morning routine paints a very beautiful picture of our property, and I am so glad that you had such a wonderful experience with us. The Blend Café and Trinitas Wines are indeed a find in Napa and we are so lucky to have them as part of our property. We hope to see you very soon, so we can tell you even more about our local wineries and what the Napa Valley has to offer.

Regards,

Didn't know where to stay in Napa. Wanted a good place at a decent price but didn't have time for a lot of researching. Went w/ friend and as soon as we arrived were happy that our expectations were surpassed. Attractively appointed, very clean, comfortable, helpful staff and fair price. Free shuttle to town and a bottle of wine in the room were nice surprises. Ate at hotel restaurant for breakfast 2X and food was very good and reasonably priced. Would be happy to stay there again.

I stayed at the Vino Bello for a conference and found it to be a fantastic location. The amenities are great and every single staff member that I encountered as friendly and helpful. The resort is a vacation timeshare property attached to the Meritage and they share many of the amenities. The conference facilities were top notch. My room included a small kitchenette and a washer and dryer, perfect for a longer stay. It is convenient to downtown Napa and all of the wineris in the valley. I would highly recommend it and can't wait to go back.

The Vino Bello resort is a Shell Vacations Club property that is also part of the Meritage resort. The spa, restaurant, wine cellar and night club/sports bar are all on the same property. Unfortunately, we didn't plan any time to take advantage of any of these amenities and spent all of our time away from the resort on day trips. Everyone from the Bellman, Front desk staff, Concierge and suite attendants went out of their way to make us feel not just welcome, but special. The Vino Bello suites are everything that you expect from a top drawer accommodation with plenty of room including a nice balcony with table and chairs, very nice modern decor and furnishings, linens, bedding and a very well equipped full kitchen. This is especially handy in Wine Country where meals can be very expensive. When we travel, we really appreciate not having to go out for every meal and we really enjoy cooking and grilling which the Vino Bello accommodates in spades. The modern gas grilles adjacent to the pools were good performers and allowed us to make several meals utilizing the local cuisine components. The best airport is Oakland and it is a very quick 30-40 minutes drive to the Vino Bello. Located at the very South end of the Napa Valley, it was only 5 minutes by car to the center of Napa, thirty minutes to the Plaza in Sonoma. The resort also runs shuttles to several stops in downtown during the late afternoon and evenings which makes going to the wonderful local restaurants and markets very easy to do and also enjoy the wines and not have to drive. Going South from the Vino Bello, it was less than an hour to downtown San Francisco for full days of play there. You are also only 20 minutes away from the BART station in Vallejo if you choose not to drive into the city. We weren't able to take advantage of this feature due to the strike by the transit workers during our stay in N. Calif. This is very helpful as parking in SF is very expensive. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to get back.

The rooms are very comfortable but the sound proofing between rooms is pretty much non-existent. Last night we had neighbors talking until after 11:00 PM. Tonight we hear furniture scraping as well as their TV. They probably are not any noisier than the average person but the noise transmits more than I would expect for a fairly nice resort.

I do not anticipate returning any time soon.
