We had such similar experiences to others on this board that I thought I should post it. My husband and daughter and I stayed at Alisal for 2 nights last year. We had heard great things about the place and were very much looking forward to our stay. We checked in to our room at arrival and found that it... More

I mistakenly chose the Alisal for a special birthday weekend for my fiance. When we arrived, we were impressed with the natural landscape - very beautiful. However, as soon as I went to check-in, the bad vibes started. The clerk did not seem particularly enthused about having to explain all that the ranch has to offer. She gave us some... More

Having just read the "hideous" review, I am aghast! My husband and I live in the gorgeous Northwest USA, are seasoned travelers (including Great Britain), have stayed in numerous 5-star resorts (including more than one Four Seasons), and have chosen to visit --and re-visit -- the Alisal for 6 winters in a row now. Their service, food, accommodations, and atmosphere... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort is located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and renowned Santa Barbara County wine country. Privately owned and operated since 1946, the Alisal is a working cattle ranch and full-service resort. This historic ranch is one of four original Spanish land grants on the west coast given to conquistador Raimundo Carrillo in the late 1700’s. Today, the romance and majesty of the old west remain in the wide-open spaces and unspoiled natural beauty of the Alisal. They serve as a reminder of simpler times and as an invitation to those with a taste for adventure. As California's premier guest ranch, the Alisal transports guests back to a bygone era. Set on a 10,000-acre working cattle ranch, this one-of-a-kind resort blends the best of nature with exceptional golf, horseback riding, tennis, fishing on a 100-acre private lake, fitness center and spa, children's activities, barnyard activities and fine dining. ... more   less
