My fiance and I visited this property in celebration of our engagement. We had been planning this trip (I didn't know I was getting proposed to at the time) and we were looking for a 5 star vacation, without having to fly this year. I have always wanted to stay at the Biltmore and I am so glad we did!... More

Went to this hotel for a meeting in January 2014. This is an hacienda type of hotel with great charm in a marvelous location. Right in front of the hotel, accross a small street you will find a great beach with good waves for surfers. The rooms are not as great as some rooms in other luxury hotel but the... More

I had stayed here before, a few years back, and and remember thinking this is one of the more special properties in the US. I have traveled a lot over the last couples of years and I was correct. There is no beach club like the Coral Casino anywhere in the states, there is just no comparing. The service is... More

Loved this hotel. Stunning in every respect. Unbeatable service. We were lucky enough to get the pass to use the beach club which was amazing. It had the most enormous pool, with luxurious sun loungers looking out to sea. We were waited on hand and foot. We also hired bikes from the hotel and cycled in to town. Lovely ride... More

We stayed at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara for our 30th wedding anniversary. What a beautiful place; lush grounds, friendly staff, wonderful food, perfect location! The property lends itself to a a very relaxing, quiet atmosphere. The decor of the resort is Spanish Colonial and beautifully appointed. The cost to stay is on the pricey side, but... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed at Four Seasons properties around the world - this is my least favorite of all. It's not a total loss by any means, but they lose major points for breaking the cardinal rule when it comes to hospitality and customer service--managing expectations. This is actually my second (and last) stay at the property -... More

From the moment we arrived at the property we knew we were in for a treat. The grounds of this hotel are absolutely beautiful not to mention being right across from the beach. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Our bags actually arrived at our room before we did. We were greeted with a lovely bottle of wine in... More

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the home page that rotate through a fabulous pool directly located next to the beach. That was one of the reasons we chose the hotel. Upon check in, we were notifited that we could access that pool for $200 a day. I think that is crap. If you don't offer it to guests,... More
