It's always a treat to stay at this Four Seasons which is set on 22 acres of beautiful gardens and pathways right on Butterfly Beach. We had a corner room with a garden view room on the second floor of one of the main buildings. The guest room was great and had a large walk in closet with some drawers....

Always beautiful and our kids love the pools and beach. We had room service, ate in the restaurant and had snacks by the pool—staff, service and food were all great. For overall quality of amenities and the hotel's location, the Biltmore is an A+ destination.

Everything about this hotel, grounds and staff were exceptional. The hotel and grounds were beautiful and a staff that exemplifies customer service to the max. We will be going back at least every year. More businesses need to send their folks here to see what real customer service looks like.

Without question, this is an incredible hotel. The staff is top-notch and the hotel grounds are lush and immaculate. This is not your typical hotel and it is also not your typical resort. It is in a category all it's own. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The buildings are not more than two stories in height and are...

When traveling alone or as a couple to Santa Barbara, I most always stay at the Four Seasons. Rooms are always well taken care of, facilities are beautiful and staff exceptional. Dinner is always great and Bar is beautiful, especially when the fireplace is in use.

I have been coming here since the late 70's and it only gets better and has never once shown it's age. It had me from the moment I pulled into the parking area. I have stayed in the regular rooms and the suites around the pool area and eaten in the restaurant and had drinks in the bar and this...

From the checkin clerk to the bellman who put my bike in the locker to the spa attendants, everyone at this wonderful resort made me feel like I was a queen and that no request would ever be a problem. I loved the spa, the gym, the pool, the grounds but mostly, the staff.

From the drive up the the hotel, to cobblestone courtyard (littered with exotic cars), to the Spanish tiled and Moorish inspired lobby (and of course, the impeccable service), and the beachfront location, this Four Seasons does NOT disappoint.

This particular Four Seasons takes you back to bygone era and you can sense the high end clientele and celebrities who used to seek accommodations here. The buildings of the main compound and grounds have been wonderfully restored and systems updated. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. An operable stained glass window in our room was a plus. The bedding...
