The honeysuckle room proportions were perfectly balanced. Ideal for using this hotel as a base to investigate the Santa Barbara wine scene. Fine dining restaurant service that supports the great food is a treat. Have to try the burger and fish and chips. How great is it to have chips with sarcens malt vinegar. How good is it to meet...

We spent the first two days of our honeymoon here and we could not have been happier with our choice. Upon arrival, we were quickly taken to our beautiful cottage. We were kindly upgraded to a lovely and spacious room. The sitting room with a fireplace and bathroom with a bathtub and indoor/outdoor shower made it the perfect place to... More

If you want privacy and time to relax, this is it. Casual elegance at its best. Rated No.1 Hotel in the US and No. 1 Restaraunt in the world. It does not disappoint. They attend to every guest in a royal manner. You think it and its done. Walk the grounds or just stay in your own space, which is... More

Originally scheduled this trip for last year but had to reschedule. We checked in when it was dark out, however I could tell the grounds were spectacular even in the evening! The check in process was easy and we settled into our gorgeous Lotus cottage. Truffles were waiting on the bed and the lighting was perfect! There was not one... More

We absolutely loved our stay at San Ysidro Ranch. The staff was attentive to every detail. We brought our two Boston Terriers with us and the property's Privileged Pet Program was awesome. Provided each of them with their own bed, treats and bowls (as well as poop bags). The cabin we had was gorgeous and while the decor was rustic... More

We met our friends from Carmel here and had a wonderful reunion. The ranch is spectacular in every way.The staff is beyond helpful and the food was great. The property is absolutely gorgeous and easy to get around. The town of Montecito was a little disappointing as there wasn't much to do. All and all great experience.Cathie@Mark S

You can read the other reviews and see how consistently superb this place is. We found it such a wonderful place to relax with serenity. The staff was outstanding, the accommodations were fabulous (loved the private terrace and hot tub), and the property stunning. The location is easy to Santa Barbara and downtown Montecito... and right by some of the... More
