The cottages are magical, the property lovely. Two caveats.....some of the staff were unengaged, which was most surprising, while others were superb. And the two restaurants offered the exact same menu. The food was not to the level of the cost or expectation and was uninspired.

SYR is a special place. It is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. The Plow and Angel restaurant and bar are particularly lovely and they make a great margarita. We enjoy the hiking trails behind the property and can't wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed here for to celebrate our anniversary. It was the perfect getaway. The property is gorgeous. Our cottage was adorable and cozy, yet spacious. Top notch amenities. The private deck with hot tub and outdoor shower was awesome and so peaceful. The hot tub did not smell strongly of chlorine which was a plus in my... More

I stayed here in April as I was surprising my daughter who goes to UCSB for her bday. Stayed two nights and loved it. Super cozy rooms and the grounds are quiet, private and peaceful. The restauraunts are really good, the pool is nice and there are some easy hiking in the area. If you really need a break, this... More

This intimate and lovely property more than fulfilled our dreams of a wonderful place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Every member of the staff with whom we interacted, from those at reception to housekeepers, groundsmen, waiters and pool attendants, was genuinely warm and friendly. Almost everyone we saw smiled and wished us a happy anniversary! Our cottage was very... More

A perfect little intimate haven of loveliness with picturesque views. Wonderful staff nothing was too much trouble. So chilled and relaxing. Bedroom was beautiful. Pool quiet and chilled, the pool side member of staff Samah was superb! Was definitely one of our favourite hotels ever!

Highly rated but I found it boring. No restaurants on Monday or Tuesday. Very quiet, if that's what you are looking for. Nice real estate and privacy is their specialty. Enjoy if that what you are looking for . One of Santa Barbara's favorites

With the stress of planning our L.A. wedding, my then fiance/now husband and I knew we wouldn't have the wherewithal to also plan a major honeymoon, so we booked two nights at SYR. It was the perfect way to indulge, relax and reconnect post-wedding. The best parts: - The rooms: We stayed in Olive. It immediately felt like "home" (if... More

My husband and I went to the San Ysidro Ranch for our first "kid free" vacation in many, many years. We had initially booked the Four Seasons Biltmore, but at the urging of a friend who had experiences with both the Biltmore and San Ysidro, we switched our reservation to San Ysidro at the last minute. Best decision ever. What... More

When My son and I went on a trip to the Santa Barbara Zoo, we stayed at the nearby San Ysidro Ranch. It was awesome! I probably should have brought my wife along with us, because she would have loved the beautiful property! There were colorful flowers all over the place. It resembled a winery or vineyard to me at... More
