SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS - Framed by its own hilltop vineyard, the Meritage Resort and Spa is the perfect base camp for a Napa vacation. It’s elegant but relaxing, suffused with a breezy Mediterranean feel from its decor to its laid back atmosphere — with plenty of family-friendly amenities, too.
Here you decide what kind of vacation experience you crave. Sip a refreshing frosé while catching some rays in a cabana at the adult pool, or set your kiddos loose at the family pool. You can indulge in wine-tasting or bowl a few games at the hip Crush Lounge with its craft cocktails and addictive deviled avocado. There’s vineyard hiking and spa treatments, too. The bounty of amenities here means that you rarely need to leave the resort — and it largely makes up for the rather nondescript business park location.
