Meritage Resort and Spa

Napa, Napa Valley Wine Region

Virgin rating

The hotel

You know you’ve reached wine country when you arrive at Meritage Resort & Spa. On the threshold of Napa Valley, its design may be Tuscan-inspired, but its soul is pure Napa, with views of a grapevine-covered slope as you swim, hiking (or strolling) trails through nine acres of vineyards, an underground tasting room, and wine served at every turn. But it’s also a place that recognises exceptional wine should be paired with life’s other luxuries: separate adult and family pools, al fresco fireplaces and whirlpools, lazy Sunday brunches, and wining and dining venues like award-winning Siena, the Crush bowling lounge, a café-come-gelateria, and a luxury wine bar. But it’s the Estate Cave that promises the most indulgence; 40 ft underground, it hosts a wine tasting room and Spa Terra’s steam grottos and soaking pools.

Excellent food. The seafood pasta and the halibut are 5 star. The tiramisu was superb. Our server was very professional. This was a lovely dining experience that is hard to duplicate elsewhere. Will always come back and visitors to Napa should not miss this lovely place

We arrived at 3pm-ish.

We arrived at 3pm-ish. The girl who checked us in was super nice. our room was not ready, but she said she pre-checked us and our room would be ready by 4 check in time and they would text us once ready. She verified our phone # and all our information. I also verified that the room extras we paid $$$$ for would be set up and in our room upon checkin, She said yes, that is actually why our room was taking longer to be prepared, they had to clean it and then set everything up for us. This did not happen. It was 415 ( after the 4 check in time advertised and no text or call) we went to check in and the Manager on duty did the entire process all over again, when we asked about it he got snippy and proceeded to argue with us as to why. It was like he wanted the last word - he was young, so I imagine he had not been trained on customer service 101, don't argue with customers. When we got to the room, nothing was set up. So I went back down stairs and asked the same manager on duty and he said I do see that, but we don't set up stuff in dirty rooms. I re-explained what the other lady had told us,how it was a surprise for our kids which why we paid extra for it, and why we waited even after 4 to get checked it. He just said again, we dont set stuff up in dirty rooms. Which makes no sense. I could tell he was going to argue with me again, so I just looked at him, he called house keeping and asked them to deliver it. He was very snippy and rude. The sheets has spots on them, and there was hair in our tub, the mirror attached to the wall had a burn or something on both sides and was wrecked. It is located in an industrial business area, which is very deceiving from the online pictures. For the money per night I would not stay again. The only good part was the Crush bowling alley. The server was super nice and that was fun, normal bar food- nothing fantastic for the price. We tried to go to Blend coffee bar in the morning, outside they had advertised " dragon fruit drink and green juice" my kids were so exited. I stood in line for like 15 mins, went to order dragon fruit juice, they were out, went to order green juice , they were out, asked if they had a breakfast burrito, they were out. Keep in mind this was like at 830 am in the morning, it was not late. Why did they have that sign up outside advertising everything they were out of!!!??? We ended up going to Starbucks. Also the brewery was closed. This was disappointing, should have been stated on their website. Read less
