Historical Traveler Reviews South Coast Winery Resort & Spa Temecula
Best Place in Temecula!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights Nov. of 2004. The rates were lower due to their being construction still going on but I know they have since gone up. The spa was not completed but that did not matter as the rooms are the best I have ever stayed in! Every room there is its own little villa(we did not have any adjoining walls to the other villas) in a circle of 4 villas with their own little mini courtyard, ours had a water fountain with trickling water! All of the furniture and decor is new and gorgeous, nothing dated at all! We had a bottle of wine sitting on our table upon entrance with 2 glasses, robe, slippers, very nice toiletries(the usual shampoo, lotion but we also had bath crystals and all of the products were nice quality and smelled wonderful!) The bathroom was huge! And tiled all over, with glass block to let in sunlight. The shower is large enough for two with twin shower heads, as is the jacuzzi bathtub(with a faucet at each end also!) They also have the gas fireplaces in the room, not so much the type of fireplace for heating but more for looks. We also had our own set of double doors and our own little patio with table and chairs. Continental breakfast served with yogurt, fruit, bagels, coffee and the usual drinks. It is an ideal place to stay for those who want to spend a day taking a wine tour since all the wineries are pretty much located off the same main road. The wine tour will pick you up also and drop you back off at South Coast. Very romantic!
Anniversary to Remember
We stayed here for our anniversary and we both felt it was incredible!! Waking up the the fresh smell of the winery on your own patio, relaxing with a bottle of great wine in a whirlpool tub before bed. The stay was amazing. Breakfast was simple, yet perfect. The staff was outstanding. I wish we could have stayed longer. Don't think twice, you will not regret staying here!! I want to go back next year!
Loved South Coast
My husband and I spontaneously stopped by for the wine tasting. To our pleasant surprise there were three rooms left for that evening. We decided to stay and experience this love nest. We can't say enough for the bedding! And the patio - filled with grape vines - how perfect! We will be visited again very soon, as well as a possbile corporate event.
We needed this in Temecula, California.
Wonderful stay at the South Coast Winery
We celebrated my birthday weekend at the South Coast Winery and could not have had a better experience. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Everything in the room from the featherbed to the spa bathtub to the fireplace were wonderful. My husband worked with the staff to surprise me, and we entered to room to find rose petals on the floor and bed, a chilled bottle of wine and chocolate dipped strawberries awaiting us. The wine is also excellent! We take wine trips in Calfornia a few times a year and would return here in a heartbeat.
I just returned from a weekend stay at the South Coast Winery Resort, and can highly recommend it! The rooms are very private, situated in clusters of 4 free standing little villas, with patios that can be very private. Our patio was in a nice spot overlooking the citrus groves -- a great place to bring breakfast or have a glass of wine.
The rooms are spacious, attractive and comfortable, and the bathrooms have large whirlpool tubs. The rooms also have a small refrigerator, robes/slippers, and a radio with a cd player.
Employees at the resort were all very friendly & helpful, and the resort is a great value. Comparable rooms at other resorts in southern California would cost much more!
My husband and I stayed at the Southcoast Winery & Resort from February 3rd to February 6th. It was WONDERFUL! Our room was quite large, with many amenities. The closet had plush robes and disposable house slippers ready for us to put right on. The mini-refrigerator had complimentary Southcoast water, and the BEAUTIFUL marble bathroom was full of all of the essentials we needed. I loved the shower with the swinging glass door, and it had a double shower head which made it easy for two to shower. The oversize tub was great. I think we took about 6 baths in our 3 nights there :) The king size bed was pretty good. I had to run to Target and buy a pillow that was a little more my style, but that is because I don't care for super squishy pillows....as far as the staff goes, everyone was really nice and made us feel right at home. I loved that our room did not share any common walls. It was like being in our own little cottage! Lots and lots of privacy. We never heard any of the other guests. Although the spa is not up yet, my husband was happy to enjoy a massage in our room.....the bottle of wine in our room was pretty tasty, and the daily continental breakfast wasn't bad at all. They served Starbucks coffee and had lots of bagels and muffins. We brought a portable DVD player and were able to connect it right to the TV in our room. We loved being lazy, and just laying in our comfortable bed watching movies for half the day....very relaxing trip. My only tiny complaint was that the french doors that led to our patio were VERY difficult to lock. So be careful with that.
I know when the pool, spa & restaurant are up and running, this place will easily run $500 a night! So go now while the rates are low!
Great New Spot
Nice place with great room on one side of complex. $209 per night on weekends but the rate is going up in March. NO RESTURANT or SPA.
Not open yet and you have to drive several miles for anything to eat.
Fantastic rooms with firepace ,jacuzzi tub etc.... Get a room on the orchard side of the property. Nice patio and private on orchard side.
Close to all other wine properties. Cheaper durring the week
Work in Progress
We planned a trip to Temecula on January 16th to check out the new South Coast Winery Resort and Spa. Although the beautifully furnished rooms are ready for occupancy, most of the major amenities are not yet completed. We did, however, see a tremendous amount of work in progress. During our brief stay, we found the staff to be polite and responsive. However, front desk staff needs to do a better job promoting the resort and the wine country. Even though this was a pre-opening experience, it should have been a more positive one. Handing out a pre-printed directory of mediocre fast food establishments, rather than informing guests of the wonderful other alternatives in the immediate and surrounding area is an example. Also, I found it odd that there was no information regarding the resort or Temecula in our room. The continental breakfast needs improvement. Although the offering was adequate, it was not special. It was like what one receives at a motor inn. Perhaps when their restaurant is finished this will no longer be an issue. On the plus side, the manager of the property was very engaging. We were shown one of the Executive Villas, which was awesome! He also described the amenities that will be in place shortly. I believe that when completed, this will be a wonderful place to visit.
Fantastic rooms! Most suitable for a romantic getaway. Rooms are elegantly yet comfortably furnished, with walk out patios next to vineyards and orchards. The beds are incredible! Construction was ongoing for spa, restaurant, and additional suites, but it was not near the open accomodations, so it did not interfere at all with our visit. Restaurant did not look anywhere near ready to open -- they were saying January, but I'd guess a later opening. Several good restaurants in the area, though, as the resort is in the heart of wine country. Looked like they had a nice, rustic pavillion with a view for weddings and events. Still working out the kinks with their housekeeping, but complaints were more than adequately addressed with speed and courtesy. Convenient to both LA and San Diego. Appeared to me that this will be THE top accomodations in Temecula and a very big deal when they finish construction... rates are projected to increase when the spa & restaurant are complete, but the new rates sounded very fair, given the location, accomodations, and setting. An absolutely lovely experience! (...And Temecula was super, too! Wines rival Napa without all the hoopla!)
My husband and I stayed here Sept.5, 2004 with the massage package. The villas are peppered throughout the vineyard- walk outside your patio and there it is! The resort is still being built, so the restaurant and spa are not complete (they bring in a maggage therapist for you). The massage was a bit pricey for what you get. Still, it was nice when we went, and the resort will be beautiful when completed!
The rooms are exactly how they look on their website- gorgeous, elegant decor, huge bathroom with 2 person Jacuzzi tub and separate 2-headed shower, fireplace, t.v, mini fridge, and patio. The bed was amazing- the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on (even more comfortable than at my own home!)
The winery itself is not as elaborate as other wineries in the area, but the accomodations more than made up for it, and the staff were great!
A great place for a gourmet yet casual dining experience is the Cafe Champagne at the Thornton Winery ($50-75 pp, make sure to make reservations). We loved it!
Overall, this is a great weekend getaway- make sure to check out all their packages.

There's also a banana tree out there (with bananas) that is looking somewhat suspect, but we'll leave that for now. Our stay in Carlsbad coincides with that of some friends who live outside Calgary.
