Very nice experience. When we arrived Carlos recognized me by name from the last time we stayed here. The room was quite comfortable and quiet over looking the pool. Room service was very punctual. The food in all restaurants was delicious.

The Biltmore Santa Barbara is by far my favorite place to stay. Service, room quality, grounds and location are outstanding - the staff are friendly, professional and make you feel important. Plan around traffic hours as the two lane 101 coast highway can get congested getting there and going back to LA.

It's always a great pleasure to come back to the Four Seasons at Santa Barbara. The place, the resort with its beautiful pool with the view of the ocean are just amazing. The gardens, guest rooms and the restaurant are just perfect.

Wonderful service! The food was great! The spa was wonderful! Walking distance to the beach. Perfect getaway from Los Angeles! Recommend this hotel if you are interested in a luxury vacation. It was our honeymoon and they upgraded us 3 levels and sent us a dessert platter and sparkling wine.

Went to the Four Seasons for her work gig - we'd been there for fun maybe 10 years ago. Fun area, lots to do/see. We hiked on many of the trails (San Ysidro, Cold Springs, etc.), did some kayaking in the ocean, biked into Santa Barbara, and enjoyed the local dining scene (browse the restaurants on Coast Village Road).

Perfect for all types of travelers, especially women who travel alone. Safety is always my number one concern. Everything is always extra special, including all the staff, just the best. Great job four seasons.

Hotel was beautiful, the room was amazing. Very cozy with fire place. The shower with the rain feature was awesome. The pool and spa facilities were very nice and the huge hot tubs were a big hit with my wife and I.

Top notch hotel property and service. Would highly recommend it. Location on the water is fantastic and the garden areas are beautiful. The swimming pool was great and so was the Casino club and Tydes restaurant.
