Stunning hotel with architecture from another time ... room was huge with separate walk-in wardrobe - wheelchair accessible bathroom was perfect, plus a big bath (often a bath is dropped out of ADA rooms but this bathroom was nearly big enough to be a single bedroom on it's own). Nice touch that the phone had charging cables for old and...

This hotel is great. We had a bungalow and it was nice, quiet and spacious. The service is outstanding and the food is great. My wife went to the spa and really enjoyed her massage. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.

My wife and I travelled extensively for the first 8-9 years of our relationship and happened to find the Biltmore 6 years ago. We fell in love with the atmosphere, the relaxed nature of the hotel and Montecito as well as the unique (for a hotel) 50 meter salt water pool at the Coral Casino. We loved it so much...

We stayed in the hotel in May 2016 and Jan 2017. We noticed a huge difference in the quality of room service and the restaurant the second time around. We were disappointed that the room smelled and was not as nice as before and the restaurant service was slow and not good. The pool was nice but there was no...

It's always a treat to stay at this Four Seasons which is set on 22 acres of beautiful gardens and pathways right on Butterfly Beach. We had a corner room with a garden view room on the second floor of one of the main buildings. The guest room was great and had a large walk in closet with some drawers....

Always beautiful and our kids love the pools and beach. We had room service, ate in the restaurant and had snacks by the pool—staff, service and food were all great. For overall quality of amenities and the hotel's location, the Biltmore is an A+ destination.

Everything about this hotel, grounds and staff were exceptional. The hotel and grounds were beautiful and a staff that exemplifies customer service to the max. We will be going back at least every year. More businesses need to send their folks here to see what real customer service looks like.

Without question, this is an incredible hotel. The staff is top-notch and the hotel grounds are lush and immaculate. This is not your typical hotel and it is also not your typical resort. It is in a category all it's own. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The buildings are not more than two stories in height and are...
