Wyndham Santa Barbara exceeded our expectations due to space and proximity to the beach. My husband and I were very comfortable in the large studio, which has a large bedroom and adjacent living/dining area, 2 bathrooms AND 2 balconies. The bathrooms are small, but adequate. The rooms and interiors seem are updated and cozy. One downside is that there is not a washer and dryer within the condo. There are coin operated washer/dryers (not in good condition) on each floor - not a normal for Wyndham properties. It's not an active resort like some of the others, more of an adult atmosphere; Not much to do for kids.
A huge plus is having access to the Wyndham Royal Vista, which is in walking distance to the resort. Wyndham Royal Vista (beautiful) is directly on the beach, with beach service. Customer service is ok...Being owners, we've seen customer service a bit better at other Wyndham locations. There is not a 24 hour customer service staff...they leave at 11PM. Security is available after 11PM.
There are not a lot of stores/restaurants on this strip, (Walgreens and about 2 restaurants) so plan your shopping/eating outside of the immediate area or bring your own, as we did. Walmart is also nearby. There are a lot of excursions available to Miami, Key West and Everglades. There is also a yacht that is located on site that has evening dinner/sunset cruise for $45 per person.
