My husband, 13 year old son and I stayed here for a family vacation in Auguust 2014. We had a picture perfect stay here. The location across from the beach was wonderful for morning walks and evening sunset strolls. The ocean water was warm enough that we didn't even venture into the nice hotel pool. The staff was first rate;... More

My girlfriend and I stayed June 1, 2013. Excellent stay! We loved our room! We had a Premier category, fireplace, heated bathroom floors and fantastic steam shower. Very large room with great bed! If I nit pick, perhaps a bit more natural light would be good. The Coral Casino, the hotel beach club, across the street is fabulous. It is... More

We were married here twenty years ago and go back every year in late December to take a picture, sometimes eat the breakfast buffet, and just walk around the grounds. We didn't actually stay at the hotel--it's way out of our range--but may do so some time in future when our children are grown. The hotel did allow us to... More

Four Seasons has become my go-to location for vacations when I can, and the Biltmore property ranks right up near the top. Truly enjoyed a 2-night stay this summer, and only wished we could have stayed longer. We had two adjoining rooms on the back of the estate near the lawn bowling greens (which were a lot of fun, actually... More

I return almost every year. Everything was perfect. Only disappointment was the $200 daily fee to use the beachclub which I declined. Otherwise I highly recommend. Great location. Spectacular grounds wonderful architecture. A bit pricey

Recently we had our daughter's weddng at the Biltmore Santa Barbara, CA.

The newly wed had wonderfull time, and we also have great compliments from our friends and families for the services provided. The Catering Manager for the wedding rendered... More

A beautiful hotel with ocean views, landscaped gardens and bold Mediterranean styled rooms. The Biltmore was the fourth stop on our three week honeymoon and we were sorry that our schedule couldn't allow longer. Our room was large, beautifully decorated and although it didn't have a view, it was in a quiet part of the property and we slept very... More

A very disappointing end to summer. The weather was perfect and hotel grounds impeccable. The rooms and location were pitiful. We asked for adjoining rooms with double beds. We got 1 double bed configuration and 1 king in cottage 7 and cottage 9 (not adjoining). The room in cottage 9 felt like we were on the RR tracks. I suspect... More

We booked the hotel last minute. We got a very nice room with a very private patio and a great fireplace. We were finishing a very casual vacation and wanted a special night. The staff was welcoming despite our rather underwhelming appearance. The service was impeccable and every recommendation was excellent. An experience that was the cherry on our trip.
