My wife and I stayed at Riviera Oaks last week in May. Our impression of the resort itself was very favorable. We happened to get a 2 bedroom, two bathroom suite, which was very spacious. The living room area had a fireplace (which we didn't use, but the ambience was nice), and the kitchen was well stocked with dishware and utensils and basically lacked nothing. We found the suite to be clean and very comfortable. In our particular unit, the livingroom and one of the bedrooms opened up onto a large balcony, while the second bedroom had a balcony of its own. We looked out onto the street, across which was a park-like setting of grass and trees leading up to a recreation building. Depends on what you are looking for. If you want to be close to the shore and San Diego and other coastal towns, this location is a bit remote (about 30 to 35 miles). If on the other hand you're just looking for a relaxing location with tennis, swimming, etc., this might be an excellent choice. There is a small shopping area with a convenience store as well as other stores a couple miles down the road. The town of Ramona itself is (I'm guessing now) about 5 miles away, but is fully stocked with restaurants, pharmacies, supermarkets, etc. The town of Julian is about 25 miles away, and is a treat if you enjoy small towns with a deliberately old-town feel. Loaded with restaurants, art galleries, etc. All in all we had a very relaxed and wonderful time. I would recommend this resort for anyone not wishing to do daily commutes to the shore, but who wants to enjoy and explore the foothills and just relax. I may well go back again myself another time.
