What did I know about Allegretto before booking a couple of nights there? I learned that it was voted the #6 resort in Northern California by Conde Nast. And after I posted about it on my Eve’s Wine 101 Facebook group my friends enlightened me more.
What Facebook Friends are Saying
Marleen R.: Never been but did research about going there. Their art pieces are beautiful, and as in the name, also has a music inclination. It’s on my list of hotels to stay in! Usually around my birthday month, as it’s offseason. Don’t forget to go to their restaurant, Cello! Food looks divine there.
Doug M.: Resort sponsors The Garagiste Festival. It’s fantastic. I love staying there! Be sure to walk the grounds.
Debra H.: We love this place, always have a great time! The longer it’s there, the more beautiful the grounds become, it was brand new the first time we stayed.
John D.: Lovely place. Beautiful grounds.
Betty H.: It’s beautiful Luke and I love staying there!
Lilia M.: We stay there all the time when we’re in Paso! Truly the best place to stay in the area. The service is outstanding, beautiful grounds, amazing food from the restaurant and great massages at the spa.
Terry B.: Yes. Love it there. Met Doug Ayers. Photography friendly. There’s a beautiful image at every glance. Also, the Allegretto is pet friendly. Our friends brought their small dog. They had a room on the lower level with “hardwood floors” and a sliding patio door.
Rose C.: We were just there for a NYE party. Beautiful resort.
Steve C.: Been there many times. They really know how to support the local community. The artwork on the site is very impressive.
Michelle T.: I want to go now after reading your post.

In 2002, Ayres Hotels was awarded the Orange County Business Journal Family Owned Business Award in the Large Business category.
