Riviera Oaks Resort By Diamond Resorts

Ramona

Nestled in the San Vicente Valley, Riviera Oaks Resort and Racquet Club features 16 tennis courts and a spa. Their spacious villas offer fully equipped kitchens and fireplaces.

Riviera Oaks Resort is one mile from San Vincente Golf Course. It is 17 miles from Cordiano Winery and 23 miles from Julian Pioneer Museum. Our room/suite was fabulous. It had all of the amenities you'd expect including full size kitchen appliances. The queen size bed was very comfortable. The fold out couch was the most comfortable I have ever seen. My son said it was more comfortable than his bed. Every staff member I encountered was very friendly. Loved the free washer/dryers for the guests to use which allowed me to have all of my laundry done before check-out instead of hauling home a lot of dirty clothes. The swimming pool and hot tub were very nice. Location is excellent. Yes, it is a bit of a trek back into town but for us, that made it all the better because it was secluded to an extent.
