Beautiful rooms

Feb 11th, 2020

Quiet and very relaxing. Big bath tub. Refrigerator, coffee machine, wine glasses and room service. Check in is at 4 but we arrived at 11:30 and were able to check into our room. Our room reservation came with coupon for wine tasting. Would stay there again TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Not worth it for more than a day.

Feb 9th, 2020

Signed up for a 5 day stay. The buildings are duplexes, so you can see your neighbor if you step 10ft out of your room. Breakfast is yogurt, fruit and Walmart quality muffins. Pool was unusable at the time of our stay, no microwave in room, no food options after 4pm. Room service was limited to sandwiches and salads. Don’t expect to eat here. Front desk was very accommodating but the things offered at the resort were sub par for the price tag. Also don’t go in February. Everything looks dead outside, and it’s too cold to go for a walk, enjoy the horses, hot air balloons or even the café- it’s practically outdoors. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Lovely Resort in the midst of Wine Tasting Country

Jan 20th, 2020

We loved our stay at the Carter Estate. We had two super large beautiful rooms in Building 18 with a lanai overlooking the vineyards. The grounds are magnificent with acres of grapes and loads of olive trees. The Tasting Room provided some lovely wines and sparkling wines right on the property. Grape Line Wine Tours picked us up from the property and took us to tastings to four wineries - 3 of the 4 which were quite good. I would have given the resort 5 starts except the wifi never worked despite assurances that it would be fixed. That was pretty annoying. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Bugs ON bed in two different rooms / different buildings

Jan 5th, 2020

I have to say first, we were beyond excited to stay here. We had just left our favorite AirBNB in Palm Springs because the heater broke and it was coooooold!!!! I had been to Carter Estate previously for wine tasting and was looking forward to 5 nights on a quiet vineyard over the holidays (Dec 28 - Jan 2). Sadly, we checked into a room in building 15 and I immediately noticed little bugs crawling on the pillow and on the comforter. I know bed bugs typically hide, so I don’t want to jump to conclusions that this is what they were, but bugs on a bed are never a pleasant sight or experience. I was not going to take any chances. I called the front desk. They were super caring, attentive and awesome. They immediately moved us to a room in building 11. I checked the the bed and it looked fine, but the mattress cover was filthy. I called and asked for housekeeping to replace the bedding, including the mattress cover. They did, right away, and they were awesome, too. At that point we thought, “Aaaaahhhhh, finally”. Suddenly, I see a little bug crawling on one of the pillows again. Then another on the other pillow. Then another. We called and asked that the manager of housekeeping come take a look. We sat there, following the bugs, on the bed, LOL. Gross. The housekeeping manager came. She said she doesn’t know what they are but she is positive they aren’t bed bugs. She said had new unopened sheets that had just come in that she could place on the beds. She said perhaps the bugs get into the linen carts. I asked if they’ve had bed bugs. She explained that she’s had people complain of bites but when they’ve received inspection reports, they never came back positive for bed bugs. Good news, but who wants bites. We just did not feel comfortable staying there...at all. Front desk was super kind, caring, and as we immediately checked out, they gave us a bottle of bubbly to take with us. Best wishes.

It's all in the details

Oct 30th, 2019

A very special place with spacious beautifully decorated rooms. Breakfast delivered to our room on a tray at the time we requested. Deep water tub that is separate from the shower. We thought the price point was fair for our midweek off season visit. Will return asap! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
