This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in around the world. Everything is top notch but nothing is over the top. The location, architecture, decor, lush grounds, service, food and staff are all 5 star. There is a smart, casual feel about this beautiful property that makes you feel privileged yet fully relaxed at the same time....

Fabulous location, staff and gorgeous hotel and grounds. You don't need to leave the property to experience gorgeous gardens and enjoy great food. All of the areas around the grounds are so private and quaint. The bar area is a little dark during the day but is relaxing and accommodated our big group and small ones. Beds are amazing and...

Came up for the weekend to enjoy a quick family getaway. The service is exceptional. Rooms have recently been updated. We had a charming ocean view room with patio, steam shower and heated bathroom floor. Bedding is top notch Four Seasons quality. Resort and room were clean and lots of attention to detail. Great place to chill and be spoiled....

I only need one word to describe the hotel: PERFECT We stayed in one of the cottages after we got married and loved everything. The attention to detail is amazing, the staff attentive and the location wonderful.

I love this hotel! The staff are so friendly and helpful. The bed is heavenly, the pool and beach are awesome, the food is great. You can borrow a bike and the bike lane is just right there. You can also do lots of hiking. The really good restaurants are walkable. We didn't try the restaurants in the hotel except...

We loved our stay at the Biltmore. The restaurants and evening entertainment, Lois Mahalia, were fantastic and the rooms are comfortable. The pool was nice but you can also walk to the beach. Great spot.

The Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara is a beautiful and welcoming. The casually sophisticated California lifestyle is something you could easily get used to! Great service from highly attentive staff. Can't wait to go back!!

Can't go wrong here. Great staff - attentive service. Rooms are beautiful. We held our managment retreat here, and they were very accommodating with our extra and last minute requests. Overlooks the ocean and if there are any rooms that have that view, then I'd request one.

Stay at the Biltmore and change your life. Even if the change lasts only as long as your stay. The lush tropical grounds are replete with specimen palms--you can take a self-guided tour or just read the ample plaques. The reception area exudes old-world grace with its saltillo tile floor and graceful arched ceilings. If you feel self-indulgent, go to...

My wife and I spent our anniversary weekend (March 8) at the Four Seasons and we are very glad we did! We are walkers and actually walked up from Ventura along the beach and new bike path. The staff at the Four Seasons were absolutely wonderful and made us feel pampered from the moment we step into the door. The...
