• For Carmen’s birthday I booked a Wine Spectator Package at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara. The hotel is in the south of Santa Barbara in the Montecito area. The property is beautiful and spread over the lush hillside. We were booked into the “Lotus” cottage a 775 sgf room with a fireplace, king poster bed with canopy,... More

We go to the SYR every year in early December...to get away from it all, luxuriate and celebrate two birthdays. We have been doing this for at least ten years. There is no place like San Ysidro Ranch...It richly deserves all the awards it gets. Everyone should have this experience at least once in a lifetime. Of course, if you... More

Seriously, this hotel is so superb that i hate to tell anyone because i plan to come back and i want rooms to be available. Set in idyllic gardens on the ridge overlooking Montecito, it has the seclusion and comfort that demands romantic visits. The details are well thought out and each room has a cabinet with local pinots. To... More

Simply amazing. The bungalows are gorgeous and well appointed. Private outdoor shower and hot tub were a nice bonus. We especially like the attentiveness of the staff. Everyone knew our names, even staff we had never met. We absolutely loved this place and plan to return every year.

Taking a road trip in California is one of the finest ways to spend you time with so much to see and experience in California's vast land mass. For the first night of our CA road trip we choose to stay at the San Isidro Ranch and it was an amazing time. First the check in process was unlike any... More

Amazing service, romantic surroundings, exceptional food quality, exceptional wine selection, friendly staff, proximity to downtown Santa Barbara and the beach, and good value for your money. I highly recommend it for a getaway.

Top-shelf luxury is all around you with a comfortable and casual atmosphere to eat, drink, play & stay. I would suggest you arrive early if you can. There are so many beautiful places to relax and enjoy on the property and in your room. The staff will take great care of you and make sure you have memorable stay.

Santa Barbara is a place I’ve been wanting to visit for years, it seemed every time I spoke to someone who had visited they only had wonderful things to say about America’s Riviera. I’ve never heard anyone say that Santa Barbara didn’t suit them well. San Ysidro Ranch is a gorgeous resort that is truly meant to give you a... More

Perhaps it was the Monday/Tuesday night stay, but my wife and I were sadly unimpressed with our experience at SYR. Even though the grounds are peaceful and picturesque our first room Fig was small, noisy (couples on both sides and thin walls) and emitted a sewage smell that led to us having to switch. The second spot we liked (lavender)... More

This property, in the mountains, and looking at the ocean is magnificent. The flower gardens are beautiful and the vegetable gardens are beautiful and show up in your meals. Our room was charming, bedroom, living room, and private garden. We ate breakfast in this flower filled garden each morning, and read in the very comfortable lounge chairs each afternoon. Hiking...
