The staff is the best, the food is wonderful and the environment breathtakingly beautiful. We've stayed at some very nice hotels, but we've never been so impressed. The personal attention that guests receive is unmatched.

Stayed at the Four Seasons - Biltmore Santa Barbara hotel during a CAHAM Conference and it was one of the best hotel stays I have had in several years. The accommodations were exemplary, the staff is friendly and professional and the hotel grounds are breathtaking. The emenities were exceptional and it felt like we were on vacation instead, there were... More

My husband surprised me with an overnight stay at the Four Seasons Biltmore to celebrate my 75th birthday enroute to visit our daughter. We stayed in a cottage that was a short walk from the main building past well manicured grounds. It was charming and had everything we needed including a small patio area. The young man who showed us... More

This is one of the very finest facilities of its type anywhere in the country, or the world, ironically because it is NOT new or splash. It has the comfortable feel of having been lived in for generations - which it has. It is possible to get lost in the foliage even after multiple visits -- and a pure pleasure... More

We have stayed at Four Seasons resorts all over the world and this property just does not live up to the Four Seasons name. I am staying at the resort now and really regretting my choice to try out the Biltmore instead of going back to Bacara. The grounds in front of the hotel and the view from the Bella... More

If I could rate this hotel a 10, I most definitely would. Set directly across from the blue Pacific, this lovely location with lush gardens and grounds is a perfect getaway for anyone who desires privacy and an upscale, relaxing vacation experience. The staff was extremely accommodating and professional. I was there with a business event, and as a writer,... More

You can read a lot of positive comments about this hotel and most of theme are correct. I do not have to repeat the details. But be aware that there is a daily fee of 200 dollar per person for using the big pool!!! This is a shame and definitly not acceptable.

From the second I was dropped off at the resort I was giddy with happiness and overwhelmed by the beauty of the property. As I arrived the sun was setting and I rushed to the waterfront where I witnessed probably the most beautiful sunset ever. The staff is absolutely incredible. Our company was hosting an event there and I don't... More

The staff was excellent, the views from the restaurant etc were lovely and the food excellent. My room did not have a view but was also not as expensive as others...550/night. Neighbors were quite noisy but there were several weddings that weekend as well.

One of the finest hotels I've stayed in. Would highly recommend for a luxury getaway. The aesthetics and amenities are superb. I got a terrific shellac manicure at the spa, which I would highly recommend as well.
