Just got back from three days at the ranch culminating in a wedding on the property. Probably the nicest venue for a wedding I have ever attended. The grounds are stunning, the California Central Coast is stunning and the weather couldn't be better. The accommodations are special. Private cottage with canopied bed, private hot tub, spacious and excellently appointed. Service... More

I attended a wedding this past weekend at San Ysidro Ranch. The setting was lovely and the reception and (most of the) staff were wonderful.....except for the onsite manager Larry. After the reception, the guests gathered in the Plow & Angel (onsite bar) at 1015pm. Some of the guest wanted to order some food, but the kitchen was already closed.... More

The moment you enter the Hacienda at the San Ysidro Ranch you feel as if you have arrived at your own private estate with your personal staff to attend to your every need or desire. This is luxury at its pinnacle because it is so understated, so subtle and so not "in your face" opulent. It is elegant, beautiful, serene... More

I've stayed at all the top 5 star resorts in the USA. Twin Farms, The Point and every 4 seasons there is and I'm telling you this is the top resort. This is not for cheap penny pinching types, so if that's you there is a very nic Hyatt in Santa Barbara. But if money is no object this is... More

My husband, toddler and I recently stayed at The San Ysidro Ranch. It was a second stay, but first time with our babe. Who knew SYR would be so accommodating of babes? They added a changing table, diaper genie, and and crib to our room, not to mention the cute little Ty Monkey stuffed animal souvenir. Our room was rustic,... More

From the incredibly beautiful grounds, to the amazing dining choices, to the wonderful staff, this is truly a one of a kind experience. Everything was near perfect. Only bad part was having to leave this special place.

My first visit, but won't be my last. The cozy cottage and beautifully landscaped grounds are enough to bring me back to this beautiful hotel. The lovely deck with table and chairs for sitting outside was a lovely touch as it overlooked the beautiful rose garden. The hot tub and outdoor shower was an added touch and the lounge chairs...

MANY years ago I attended UCSB and had heard of SYR but never ventured in. When planning our anniversary trip I thought of it right away and could NOT be happier!!!

What a beautiful property. We stayed for four days to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Tangerine Cottage is large, romantic, has charming decorating touches, private, and has a great view. The canopy bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is huge, with two sinks and a separate toilet room. Hummingbirds were everywhere because May flowers were in bloom. We had fragrant... More
