The Ponte is a very nice hotel. As other reviewers have said, the rooms are well appointed, the beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly and the restaurants offer very good food. However, it is a stretch to call it a first class resort, particularly if you compare it to Napa Valley properties. First, there is no pool. Temecula is hot; sometimes very hot and there is no plausible excuse for the absence of a pool. The staff does its best to toe the party line and say that a pool would spoil the "tranquility of the experience." Wrong; some of the most tranquil hotels in the world have pools. Second, there is no spa. Yes, you can get a massage but they are done in your room. "So, if we move the chair, and squeeze around the bed, we might be able to get the table to fit." That would certainly be very relaxing. It looks like a lot of the guests are attending a wedding or event either at the hotel or nearby. If you are looking for a nice place to stay after some wine tasting and wedding festivities then the Ponte should work just fine. But if you are looking for a true resort experience then you should keep looking.
