There are a handful of small luxury hotels out there that deserve special praise for the experience they provide to their guests and SYR is one of those places. Strangely, having the word "Ranch" in the name seems to suggest that guests are in for a world-class experience (see Post Ranch Inn and Calistoga Ranch). We stayed in the Lavender... More

My boyfriend and I went for my birthday and it was the most romantic relaxing place I have ever been to. The food was amazing. It was way more than what we expected. We were in love. We want to Reuben every year.

... and wonderful in every way. Individual cottages with beautiful, elegant, tasteful decor; curtained canopy bed, fireplace, heated tile bathroom floor, enclosed patio with hot tub. West-facing private-entry cottages (ours was the Lotus Cottage) provide a peek of the ocean from our veranda with a sunset view over the hedges (see photo). In-room amenities of wine, pistachios, coffee, amazing Santa... More

We decided to spend our honeymoon at this property after debating the Santa Barbara offerings. I do love the fact that there is so much history at the San Ysidro. The pictures of the property were a little concerning to me. My concerns were immediately gone when I arrived. Wonderful property from the entrance to the cottage. Beautiful grounds. Amanda... More

Wow. San Yisidro is simply amazing. Very private, exclusive and luxurious property. Restaurant and bar serve THE most amazing food. Service is perfect. Cottages are beautiful. I simply cannot say enough about this fabulous place. It should be on everyone's bucket list for extravagant, luxurious pampering. We went into Montecito several times and loved it.

I reviewed the San Ysidro last year, but decided to do it again this year. We just returned to Los Angeles from two days there. What makes this place so special for us is that the minute we drive up the olive tree orchard lined roadway entry, we both begin relaxing. On both evenings we ate dinner at The Stonehouse.... 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
