Ahh, finally had a chance to stay at this wonderful place. Excellent visit that re-charged my batteries!! Plenty of options for relaxing - room, patio/balcony, pools, spa, beach (low-tide walk), fireplace, etc. Every interaction with staff was positive - they were there when we needed help, but otherwise very professional and unobtrusive. The room was quiet and included wonderful amenities: robes, slippers, candles, good smelling products, ipod docking station, tv (including cable guide and LOTS of free movie choices), wifi, relaxing/deep tub, etc. Other reviews mention dated rooms, but ours must have been a new one. Never heard any neighbors, stayed on the 3rd floor. Wide variety of fresh, healthy dining options. Room service was fast. Lunch at the Spa Cafe was delicious. Lots of fitness options - big gym with cardio machines & weights. Plus, pilates classes. Outdoor cardio/sculpting class with Barbara was tough and fun! Would have loved to get a spa treatment, but too pricey. Very quick and easy to get to downtown Santa Barbara (15-20 min drive), but just wanted to stay relaxing at the resort!
