Overview

A golfer’s Shangri La tucked in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains with a spa and farm-to-table fare

The Lowdown

Reminiscent of a grand country estate, this sophisticated 45-room retreat is located south of San Jose in one of the country’s oldest wine growing regions. Golf is the main focus, true–the 260-acre Robert Trent Jones, Jr., championship golf course surrounding the resort is hard to miss–but non-golfers will relish wandering around the resort’s winery or indulging in a grape seed and cherry bark body scrub at the Sense spa. Dine on organic farm-to-table Tuscany-meets-Cali cuisine at Il Vigneto, savor a martini and oysters on the half shell fireside at One Iron Bar, or enjoy club sandwiches and burgers at the Lion’s Peak Grill, overlooking the golf course.

In the Area

With comely Carmel just an hour’s drive away, you’ll be tempted to wander the famous town’s tranquil streets and stock up on everything from Asian antiques to fine cashmere. Similarly, Cannery Row in nearby Monterey offers novel reasons to flex your credit card. Back at the ranch, be sure to check out the Clos Lachance 85-acre vineyard and winery, where you can taste wines, picnic or play a lazy game of bocce.

Best Date Night 2019
Reviewed 2 months ago

I booked a date night for dinner and a nights stay in the resort. The views are to die for. We saw wildlife along with a beautiful golf course. The food was great and our server and chef were on point. Nothing was rushed. When the food was brought out, it was grilled perfect and the presentation was very nice. The rooms were comfortable and when we returned from the dinner, the fire place was lit with a few other surprises. I will be returning in the future. Thank you Rosewood Cordevalle.

Great for everyone!

Booked lodging and meeting space for a meeting 5+ years ago. LOVED IT. Best for couples or solo or business travelers. Not so much for families unless you renting out the whole property lol. I highly recommend it.

New chef
Reviewed 3 months ago

We been here a few times during Valentine and always enjoyed it.

They have a new chef (the restaurant Il Vigneto is private to the guest and golf club members and thus I can't find it in Trip Advisor) and we enjoyed his creations.

The Caesar salad was surprisingly good. The wait staff makes the salads right in front of you. To top it off, the wait staff use a giant pepper shaker at the end. We thought the giant pepper shaker was for decoration only (it's like 4 feet something tall) and to our surprised, they used it and some laughter from us and the wait staff.

We ordered the lamb and it was great. Oh, we also did the Valentine dinner the night before and it was great also.

Wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

For Golfers Only

There is no reason to book here unless you like to golf in which case it's probably near nirvana. Some may enjoy looking out over a golf course but it's not my cuppa tea.

Ours was the high-end suite with hot tub on a secluded terrace. That terrace was scruffy and in need of attention. Suite furniture was tired and clunky except the bed which was great. Excellent, spacious bathroom with jacuzzi bath tub and walk-in shower. Electrical outlets near bed were inconvenient.

Room service was very good, swift and tasty but eschew the lobster mac 'n cheese. Recommend the salmon, grilled steak and eggs benedict.

The lobby is agreeable. Checkin and checkout OK. There is a library with fireplace and limited comfy seating adjacent to the lobby -- a wonderful room. Bar/eatery has too many tables, difficult to navigate. We spent a lot of time there as we arrived two hours ahead of checkin and suite was not ready.

All service and staff competent and delightful. Nevertheless we checked out a day early. Not a copacetic place for us.

Hidden Gem but needs polish

Visited for a weekend night and it is impressive. A little off hwy 101 that adds to the charm. The drive from the security gate to the front desk was beautiful. Staff was friendly and check-in efficient. Lobby area has wonderful Holiday decorations. A bellman was immediately available for transport to our room. The room overlooked the golf course. Very spacious with fireplace. Nice large king bed. A huge walk in closet and a spacious bathroom. Jacuzzi tub has outside window view (with shade). Very quiet. Television remote did not work and maintenance arrived quickly after call to replace batteries. A large variety of stations available. Walk in shower had temperature guide on hardware which was very nice. Robes were available but were not impressive. Bathroom vanity rug was stained. Lots of lights and switches but no notation of what they control. Check out was very efficient.
