We stayed for our anniversary and everything was perfect. The service was incredible, the room immaculate and the view breathtaking. 180Blu at sunset was so beautiful and they made my favorite strawberry infused martini that was not on the menu. A guest said she was cold and out came blankets for everyone. Lunch and cocktails at the pool were so... More

We now live in Santa Barbara. In the past we lived near the Ritz, approx 2 blocks away, for 15 years. Our family events were very formal and our visits to the Ritz were always very special. Our last visit back to Orange County was a big change. We planned on going to the Ritz for a very relaxing day... More

With any ritz carlton experience, there's rarely anything bad that can be said. Would absolutely stay here again, but I'd be quicker to speak up about my accommodations. I got the end room. Which is fine, don't mind walking, but had issues with water pressure, shower head, tv cutting in and out, and a noisy gate outside. Business meeting staff... More

The property and location were beautiful up on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Our dinners in Blu180 and Raya were both delicious with good service. The ambience of Raya was like being on a cruise ship with the huge windows open to the ocean. Both dinners were at sunset so we were treated to a colorful view during dinner. Blu180... More

Impeccable service, great rooms, perfect location and a wonderful staff. On site dining is all great and the spa is terrific as well. Club level is perfect if looking for a place to hang and not leave--endless beverages and food. Staff was great. Although there was construction going on--they were installing gas firepits in lower rooms which was annoying, the... More

I recently had a 4 night stay at the Ritz for a business meeting. Although the property is fantastic, what really stands out are the personnel. Their attention to detail and professionalism are rare these days. We had a lovely ground floor room with a fire pit. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom had two sinks which is... More

I had not done much research prior to my trip. Upon my arrival for a 5 night stay I was floored when I entered the lobby area with the great service and gorgeous look of the hotel. The bellman brought our bags to the room and we had a gorgeous oceanfront room with a firepit I was again floored. the... More

always the best in service and superior luxury. this is an absolutely awesome resort and what makes it truly is the staff and service. If you stay at a Ritz often you more than likely have a file for what you like and don't like and they really do try to follow that to the max. The people always smile... More

This hotel follows the Ritz model to a tee - wonderful lobby, great pool, nice bathrooms, and good service, but thoroughly average room. This is a picturesque place. The ocean views, the immaculate lobby, and the great pool are all huge selling points. Another bonus is that this is a great hotel for kids. Lots to do, and plenty of... More
