Reviews for Sonoma Coast Villa & Spa
We were here on the Christmas weekend and it turned out to be amazing. We booked this place based on the great reviews and they met our expectations. Each and every staff member was engaging, courteous and ever helpful. The o site restaurant manager, Eric, had a bunch of stories to share and the food was quite delicious too. The restaurant has a gourmet and changing spread for dinner and prices on the higher side. The buffet style breakfast was included with our booking and had a few hot items as well. They have wine and cheese pairings in the evening between 4.30 to 5.30 pm, which was quite a good experience. The jacuzzi is a nice touch as well with plenty of towels around. The place is close (to drive) to a bunch of dining options in Bodega Bay and Valley Ford as well. They have nice wood fireplaces but since spare the air advisory was on, we couldn't use them. The bath area only had a standing shower, there was no hot tub in our room. Overall it was a pleasant stay for us.

This is our third or fourth time staying here and the first time since their recent ownership change. It's a nice place off of the beaten path to stay while visiting the area and wine tasting. The place has always been consistent in their commitment to service, privacy and room quality. The staff goes out of their way to help you in anyway they can and they put on a very nice breakfast. If they would switch from flat bottom sheets over to fitted sheets the place would be almost perfect
The staff was incredibly helpful, nice, and accommodating. They greeted us immediately when arriving and gave us great recommendations for local wineries and restaurants. They really went above and beyond! We ate at the restaurant one night, by recommendation ordered the chef pairing. The wine pairing was spot on and the food was delicious. Buffet breakfast was included also, and was great. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short, the front desk was so nice and understanding. The resort is a little secluded, so perfect for relaxing getaway, spa day, and great place to enjoy a book.

While on only the second of what has become annual pilgrimages to special places around the world we stayed at the Resort and had a delightful time watching as one of the owners served as desk clerk, bell man, and then showed up behind the bar when we went for a nightcap - we became well acquainted and he shared a little bit of a special stash of Cognac (or was it brandy?). He and his wife are Europeans and aside from being great hosts seemed to be more than willing to show how friendly and special life can be when you are road weary and wanting a small bit of luxury there in the rolling hills and valleys of Sonoma Coast wine country. We will never forget the spacious and elegant room with the mini-courtyard out front, fireplace, hot tub and other accoutrements. Plus, we asked what would be served for Thanksgiving dinner from our multi-talented host and he said "I don't know, it depends on what is fresh at the market today". We were not disappointed. So special was our trip back then that we are returning in November 2017 for an encore performance. We will let you know what we had for Thanksgiving Dinner this year - a real challenge for the pescatarians among us!

We were looking for a place in Sonoma County to use as a "home base" while spending a few days in wine country. After exploring a few much more expensive options, we happened upon Sonoma Coast Villa & Spa. Based on some older reviews (six months or so ago), we were a bit hesitant, but since more recent reviews were positive, we decided to book three nights at the resort. Rather than booking through a third party, we worked directly with the resort. They were very helpful, and were forthcoming about the different types of rates and rooms available. We opted for a non-refundable rate, with full disclosure from staff that we would be charged the full amount of our stay immediately upon booking. We arrived a little before 8 (closing time for the front desk) on the first night of our stay and were greeted by a friendly member of the staff who assisted us with a smooth check-in and showed us to our Villa. We were pleasantly surprised with our very spacious room. It was well appointed and clean. Furnishings were attractive and newer, bedding was comfortable, and the bathroom was quite nice with a jetted tub and large shower. We had an opportunity to look around the remainder of the resort a bit more the next day and found the pool area to be small, but clean and inviting, and the grounds to be beautifully maintained...lots of flowering plants. We had the opportunity to eat at the hotel's restaurant, and it was good. The chef checked in with us after our meal and was genuinely interested in ensuring that our meal was good. He clearly took pride in his work. The hotel offered a complimentary breakfast each morning at 9. This was a bit late for us, as we were planning to spend as much time as possible sightseeing. However, on our last morning, we did eat breakfast at the hotel and it was excellent...not a typical complimentary hotel breakfast. Overall, the quiet atmosphere of the resort was relaxing, and we enjoyed our stay. Though we don't wish to be negative about our stay, or to discourage others from staying at SCVS, we do want to note a few things that made our stay less than 100 percent enjoyable. First, hotel and restaurant staff were not professionally dressed and they wore nothing to identify themselves as resort employees. Therefore, it was impossible to distinguish them from registered guests, restaurant patrons, or just folks that were hanging around the facility. This was unsettling since our villa had an outside entrance and was located far at the back of the property. Second, this is a very small establishment, and the front desk staff were not always present when we came and went, but when they were, they did not acknowledge us in any way to determine if we were guests, prospective restaurant patrons, etc. One evening, we returned to the hotel and a young lady followed us, without speaking or making eye contact, back toward our villa. She was turning on lights around the pool area, but again...nothing to identify her as hotel staff, so we really had no idea. Third, it seemed that many staff members were in the midst of training. They were unsure of products, prices, and procedures, and they seemed a bit stressed...almost inconvenienced by guests (with the exception of the young man who facilitated wine tasting, and the chef, who were personable and did an excellent job). SCVS deserves an A for effort. They appear to be really trying hard to bring an aging facility back to life. However, they still seem to be trying to figure out what they want to be and how to create a memorable experience for their guests. Hopefully with time, they will settle in and present a relaxing atmosphere without the awkwardness that seems to permeate the resort now.
