Fodor's Review

The lakeside spa, on 240 hilly acres near the intersection of U.S. 101 and Highway 46 East, is a great place to relax after wine tasting or festival-going. Soak in a private indoor or outdoor hot tub fed by natural mineral springs, or indulge in a massage or facial.

River Oaks Hot Springs & Spa Review

The ambiance is amazing... tucked back in nature, you pass a lake as head to the very end of the long driveway where the spa building awaits you! They offer massages and facials and hotstone and wraps... Very friendly staff welcome you as you are guided to a beautiful locker room where they give you a robe and a towel and disposable flip flops. Most of their services come with a half an hour complimentary warm mineral spa in one of their private

open air patio mineral spas. My friend and I had what they call the winemaker's package early in the morning so instead of wine we were offered mimosas which they served us on a silver platter which we thought was a nice touch! We sat in our own open air hot "clean but smelly" tub of minerals for an hour and then went to our hour massages. Heaven. The two women at the front desk fell all over themselves suggesting different hotels and restaurants in the area and were so helpful. We ended up staying just down the street at La Quinta and ate at Chicos near the park in downtown... It was so good we went back twice. It was just down the street from the movie theater so we walked over and took in a current movie which was a great way to end the day after stopping in at a few tasting rooms ALL within walking distance in downtown! Paso Robles is the next Carmel!

would not go back

myself and 6 other friends booked spa treatments well in advance. When we arrived we were treated with an attitude of 2 ladies rolling their eyes at us while checking us in. Not much of an introduction given to acculmate one to the spa. Good massage, reasonably priced, however since there were 7 of us spa manager promised a comp fruit platter that she did not deliver. When I asked about it she just said sorry I forgot. No quiet room, only the lobby

if not having a treatment or sitting in the mineral tub. Finally we found the tubs dirty and the first one had a dead frog in it. Sent letter to owner who wasn't interested in my comments. Would not go back.
