This was a very fun and relaxing weekend getaway. The food, service, and location were phenomenal. The hotel bar has a wonderful Spanish menu with tapas and a wide selection of tequilas. It's very quiet and peaceful and the rooms are very authentic Spanish. A perfect romantic getaway for the weekend.

The hotel is stunning and the grounds are luch with flowers, trees and shrubs. The staff was polite and helpful in every way. Our room was an oasis. One of the cottage rooms with wonderful traditional decor. and a huge bathroom. The beach is right across the street from the hotel and we were fortunate enough to see sea lions... More

The Four Seasons Biltmore knows how to provide excellent service in every aspect - from the mere mundane of the wait staff or the housekeeping staff greeting you by name to the concierge staff setting up a special bicycle tour of Santa Barbara. Although a bit expensive, it is well worth the money. The Four Seasons Biltmore is a phenomenal... More

The Four Seasons Resort Biltmore in Santa Barbara is exceptional on every level. First and foremost the incredibly breathtaking beach location. To the most comfortable and well appointed cottages and grounds to the amazing service from staff members like bellman Hollis who always welcomes us back to the resort with a warm greeting.

We stayed here for the first time with our teenage-aged children. It was a wonderful experience in every aspect. Room location was near the pool with beautiful greenery/flowers view on patio. We hope to be back before too long.

After a not so pleasant experience somewhere along the beaches of Santa Barbra, we decided to ditch our hotel, and move to the Four Seasons. We went there early in the morning, and everything changed. Thorough and professional staff in every aspect of the hotel (especially the valet and reception), large rooms with amazing bathrooms. Wonderful location with a wonderful... More

An amazing, beautiful, well maintained hotel with about the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever encountered in any business. The hotel grounds are gorgeous and lush, it feels a little like a Disney production rather than a hotel... and the rooms are comfortable and well appointed without losing any of their historic charm. If you could just get rid... More

Pro's: Extremely hospitable & welcoming staff, including parking attendants, reception, spa, housekeeping & room service. Our room was small but lovely, clean, sunny. The landscaping outside our room and throughout the hotel was exquisite. Kudos to management for hiring so many diversely talented professionals! Cons: The reception desk @ the Coral Casino beach club is off to the side. We... More

Very old and smelly hotel, very noisy, a lot of light comes in the rooms and you can not control it. definitely DO NOT VALET PARK YOUR CAR. They damaged the wheels of my new car and didn't take responsibility for it.

Thanks to Richie and his team at WhatAHotel.com we enjoyed a fabulous stay at the Four Seasons The Biltmore. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to beautiful rooms with Prosecco and trays of sweets to celebrate an anniversary and engagement in the family; a fabulous buffet breakfast was served each day on the terrace overlooking the ocean and full access was...
