I've stayed in hotels around the world and the Santa Barbara Four Seasons is easily among my top five favorites. The staff were over-the-top friendly and accommodating, the facilities superb, the bed and pillows memorably heavenly. I can't say enough about this simply wonderful hotel.

This is an intimate and comfortable hotel. It sits on the beach and has views to die for. The rooms are large and comfortable. The pool, on the ocean is fantastic. Gym, sauna and spa Is all there. The service is very good. The staff has a smile for everyone. It is convenient to the airport, a short 20 minute... More

This place is really a 5. It's beautiful. The staff is fantastic. The ocean is right there. The problem is that in the wrong room, you can have a really bad stay. The Four Seasons on the beach in Santa Barbara is everything you would expect it to be. It's like a little slice of tropical heaven near one of... More

This is the third time we have stayed at the Four Seasons Biltmore, but will probably try a different resort on our next visit. Our room backed up to a parking lot, and we had several problems with the shower, TV, and electronics during our visit. There is no in-room coffee maker unless requested. Also, beware of the train.....it is... More

Beautiful grounds, first rate service. The rooms are spacious and well appointed but could use a little update. Having the train pass by was slightly annoying but can't be helped. Never used the beach pool for $200 a day, but the hotel pool was just fine. Nice gym and bikes available for rent. The grounds, the staff and the service... More

Service is excellent. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful even after I checked out. The rooms could use some renovation. It would be great if they could add some modern amenities like good expresso machine and newer TVs, which are things that people come to expect from a hotel at this price range.

This is an absolutely gorgeous hotel with a highly trained and professional staff to give it it's stellar reputation. The physical plant is in great shape, front desk was extremely welcoming and engaging, and the restaurant staff were excellent. The hotel is in a great spot across from the ocean and boasts a beautiful property with spectacular gardens which is... More

What a beautiful setting. It's just off the 101, so it is easy access, but far enough off the road that you feel like you're in a different world! It's just feet from Butterfly beach, and the grounds are simply stunning. The hotel itself is beautiful, and the staff are so friendly. I recommend it!

As a big fan of other Four Seasons properties I was looking forward to our visit to this property. The service as you would expect is exceptional. The property itself is beautiful and full of nooks and crannies. My only complaint is the noise factor. It's rather odd that there are Amtrak tracks that run very close to the property.... More
