“Creme de la Creme”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I could not say enough about this place! The staff was friendly, helpful and gracious. The king sized villa was overly spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean. Ample closet space ( a walk in) the most comfortable bed I ever slept in. The bathroom was larger than other hotel rooms sleeping areas. The location was very quiet. Parking was near by. The view of vineyards right out the window were beautiful. I highly recommend this place, They even provided a complimentary bottle of wine. With my special promotion I received a free CASE of wine and the complimentary bottle.

Room Tip: The Villas are awesome!

Hi diannespain,
Thank you for taking the time to offer us your 5-star review detailing your experience at South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. We are delighted to hear that you felt your king sized villa, with an oversized restroom and walk-in closet, were the “Crème de la Crème” of hotel stays. We greatly appreciate your compliments and recommendation, and we are so happy to hear you took home plenty of wine to share! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We stayed at this resort for a wedding. The wedding was beautiful and the resort was both beautiful and elegant! The room was huge, had a balcony and great views of the grounds and vineyards. The restaurant was very nice and very reasonable and had great service. This resort is in the prettiest area of Temecula.

My husband and I enjoyed a great 10th anniversary weekend. The wine tour was a lot of fun- and our package was great- the only thing missing was some free wine tasting. The main tasting room is VERY busy especially on weekends. We visited the smaller tasting room this visit and found it much quieter and more enjoyable. There were quite a few rowdy wedding guests on Saturday night- would recommend to the hotel that they place all of these folks away from the weekend travelers.

Room Tip: The Premium View King Villas are awesome- beautiful views and quieter than the villas bordering the...

Hi lakechaney,
Thank you for choosing South Coast Winery for your 10th anniversary weekend and for your 5-star review. We understand the importance of special occasions such as anniversaries, and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your wine tour and resort package on your trip. On the weekends, our main tasting room does tend to get quite busy, making the second tasting room (our Wine Press) a perfect area for a more relaxed tasting experience. We truly appreciate your comments regarding large parties in the hotel, and take all feedback into consideration when establishing next steps toward further improvement. It would be our pleasure to have you back at South Coast Winery for future special celebrations!

This is our 3rd time staying at the resort & we've enjoyed all times. The rooms are beautiful & spacious, the hotel staff are very friendly and courteous. We are wine club members & we picked up our 2 shipments along with a case of wine. Delicious wines. Tasting rooms were very full, but the pourers were still friendly and explained the various flavors to us

We had dinner at the Vineyard Rose & had an enjoyable time. We ordered a Zinfandel wine that was on the 1/2 off list & surprisingly was the smoothest & best wine I ever had. Kurt was our server and was very professional which made our dinner over the top.

We will definitely come back very soon.

For a newer hotel on the winery strip, I expected more for some reason. Maybe because it is next door to Ponte which has an extremely unique and detailed hotel. After staying there, South Coast just seems like another hotel. A big benefit is the pool and spa which is great at night and the specials that they often offer on external websites.

Hi Katie M.
Thank you for taking the time to post your four-star review on your experience at South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. While we are glad to hear that you enjoyed our pool and spa area, we are disappointed that our hotel tower did not meet your expectations. By offering both old-world style and charm with private villas and a contemporary 50-unit all suite luxury hotel, South Coast Winery is often able to meet the getaway preferences of all of our guests. That being said, we would love to invite you back to experience the private patio tucked away in the vineyards, and countryside charm found in our villas offer. We trust that we will have the pleasure of seeing you on your next trip to Temecula Valley Wine Country.

We were there with a large family group for a family wedding. Strangely, the clerk at check in kept addressing my mother as "my dear." Our villa room was large, but the layout was awkward. Maybe a 14 inch clearance between the bed and a big piece of furniture to enter the bathroom. The air conditioner is "Motel 6" style. The phone did not ring in our room. No lamp on one side of the bed. My parents' room, with an accessible bathroom was very poorly designed and furnished for their needs. Very peculiarly, the snack drink/bar at the pool was closed for 1-1.5 hours during prime lunch time so the staff could take their lunch break, though the pool/spa area was jammed with guests. Service in the restaurant was either way too slow, or way too fast. Staff was maybe overtrained to the extent that guests were a secondary concern to their processes and procedures.

We surprised our sister with a stay at the winery. Started with a massage in the spa and topped the evening off with a dinner for twelve in the wonderful restaurant. Robert did a wonderful job and everyone loved the food. We will definitely be back!
