I got to know this place years ago. I held business meetings at that time, in hotels all over the world including the Hotel du Cap on the Riviera and the Coral Beach Club in Bermuda, and the Gritti Palace in Venezia. So I know from swell, let's just say. My first return was more recent. My gal and I... More

The Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara is not only historic but has an exceptionally beautiful setting with a meticulously kept facility and grounds. Above all, the service was extraordinary. The food and service in the restaurants was also noteworthy. The rooms are luxurious yet comfortable with a variety of amenities.

I recently spent five days here with my family, including teenagers and twenty-somethings. We had two premier level rooms, which gave us access to the Coral Casino pool area. The hotel grounds and common areas are lush, beautiful, and impeccably maintained. The property is quite spread out, and somewhat of a labyrinth, so it took us a few days to... More

Good location, good service but the hotel is too old. We had a room at the ground floor whith no intimacy. The bathroom is very old. In my opinion, the prices are much too high in regard of he quality of the hotel. Bel emplacement, bon service mais un peu vieillot surtout au regard du prix de la chambre qui... More

We spent 3 night at the Biltmore. The hotel deserves all the best reviews it has received. Everything is luxury. The only slight negative is that there is only one restaurant. There is a second restaurant at the casino that was closed when we visited (monday- tuesday). We will definitely return next time we visit Santa Barbara.

The hotel and property are beautiful and beautifully located. The hotel has good facilities including tennis courts. The look and feel of the hotel is very authentic and matches the surroundings and the area. Staff were very helpful and friendly and service was outstanding. The hotel has a great pool - although probably not big enough for the size of... More

We have returned almost every year since the late 80's. It is the most well-kept, beautiful hotel in southern California. The gardens are so well tended and gorgeous. The smells of the flowers and grass and trees is wonderful. Beds are super comfortable. The rooms are plush. We just love it and enjoy breakfast on the patio!

Ok, it's a Four Seasons - expect 5 star service and expect to pay for it. We recently stayed here for the night. The location cannot be beat - great ocean side locale in Montecito / Santa Barbara. Totally beautiful landscaping as well... Really first class here. Issues though were a pushy staff at check in and in the restaurant... More

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
