We've stayed here 3 times now (each time with a group). I think whether you like this place will depend on whether you like glamping. You are three basic choices (we've stayed in each): a private cabin (it's basically like a nice hotel room with private bath but no television...the beds are comfy), a safari tent (the beds are better than the shared cabins, and come with cleaning service, but some of the tents are older and have mildew or are stained and they can get cold even with the portable heater they give you) and a shared cabin (beds are hard, bunkbeds, hard to sleep with all those people in a room, even if they are friends and family). With the exception of the private cabins, you'll be walking to the bathroom house which is a pain in the middle of the night in the dark, but then that's the camping part of the experience. You get a wilderness-lite experience (by the beach just a few miles north of Santa Barbara is a remote canyon with some little critters such as owls and skunks) yet still have access to the camp store complete with a prepackaged bbq and fire pit package and restaurant service. There's even a walk to the llamas/goats that little ones will enjoy on the weekend.
However, the big drawback is the price for what you get. The weekend we went, the private cabin was $500+ for 2 nights. That's a trip to disneyland right there for something which clearly isn't a 4 star hotel. Even the tents topped off at $250+ for 2 nights. In my opinion there wasn't much of a value there. And the experience is neither a hotel experience nor real camping. But it was fun going with our groups-- campfires ever night, a nearby beach and everyone in the group got to choose their particular experience. There's a heated swimming pool and a playard for the kids (agree with the tip...if you have kids stay near the yard, otherwise stay away). I don't think I would go back, however, just on our own. Overall, if you like the glamping experience, you might like this place. If you are looking for a hotel experience this will disappoint because of the price and accommodations are not up to hotel standards. If you are looking for true camping, you won't like it because this is clearly camping-lite. I also give it a 2 because of the price value for what you get.
