We spent a week at the beautiful Santa Barbara Resort in February. The staff was friendly and fantastic, especially with our 4 year old son. Our only downside is consistent with other reviewers and that is the distance it is from things. We anticipated it and didn't mind. We just rented a car for a few days after we got there. You can get tired at eating at the same 3 restaurants but they do try and do some special menus or unique dining experiences certain nights of the week to offer more variety. I think Wednesday was BBQ by the pool and it was great. We were also surprised to see that there isn't a jaccuzi or hot tub on property. The pool was cool, especially at night and we would have really enjoyed a hot tub. Otherwise, the beach is beautiful and calm. there's a variety of activities going on if you want to participate and water rentals nearby. We would go back in a heartbeat!
