Have stayed to Santa Barbara, 4 times and have been more impressed each time. I love the location, the staff are amazing and the facilities are 5+star all the way. Added a new fitness centre so for me that was the icing on the cake. I love it and would recommend it. I would suggest it is a mature resort, not many kids which we really enjoy as I go with my friends and they do child care so getting away and not being surrounded by kids is a plus. Across street from beach. IT HAS IT ALL!!
