They are missing the mark at this property. I complained to management and they did not respond. I frequent many four seasons and I generally NEVER complain. They botched check-in, sent me to the wrong bungalow after I checked in and then questioned my identity when I had to trek back to the front desk. It was weird. They left... More

From first sight this beautiful property overlooking the ocean was the highlight of our recent roadtrip in California. The grounds are beautifully maintained with impeccable taste. The pool area is well cared for. Service was stunning. Informal and relaxed, but always delivered with genuine care and friendliness. From valet attendants to restaurant servers there was just the right level of... More

My wife and I stayed at this place for a work-related conference. Old Spanish/Mediterranean style architecture characterizes this resort that is well preserved and redesigned adorning this exclusive location in Santa Barbara. Rooms are good size and very luxurious. Function rooms are very well maintained and service is excellent. Food is very good at their restaurants and pricey as expected... More

Technically this property is in Montecito -- not a bad thing by any stretch as you can walk-up to the main street which has wonderful restaurants and fair shopping. Its also very easy to get bikes from the hotel and ride into Santa Barbara proper - an easy ride and Santa Barbara is very approachable on bike. The hotel property... More

We booked a suite and they failed to tell us it was right by the train tracks. They said they could change our room but not for our entire stay and we would have to pay an additional fee for the upgrade. We have stayed at several Four Seasons and Santa Barbara was not up to the quality we are... More

Dear rockandkids, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara. We are extremely disappointed to hear we did not meet your expectations, and our lack of availability during your stay limited the options for a room move. This is contrary to the high standards of luxury we work so... More

We stayed two nights and we had dinner at bella vista that is the place for brakfast also. With the club on the beach and his pool and bar (cocktail and so on) this resort can compete with every expectation or desire you can have. As a plus I could do everything with the app and checking in and out... More

We stayed here 3 nights on a family road trip with a our 3 kids 14,13 and 9. Front desk / valet parking really welcoming. Lovely individual rooms with nice details (Spanish style tiling/recesses). Probably the most comfy beds I have ever slept in. Check if you get access to the Coral Casino club. It is truly amazing - great... More

My family and I love the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara. The grounds are charming and beautiful. The rooms feel luxurious in an understated way. We completely agree with the many reviews that have highlighted the outstanding service -- the staff are all really gracious and accommodating. We particularly enjoyed our time at the Coral Casino across the street, which... More

The view from the outdoor tables is the Pacific Ocean and what a view it is! Lunch options are very good. Cappuccino was perfectly executed. Lobster roll was pretty good but the roll was a bit dry. Grilled vegetables were well prepared and perhaps could've used a bit more spice or flavor. Service was impeccable. Also, I needed to print... More
