My lovely wife and I were married at the Four Season Santa Barbra last weekend where we experienced the MOST amazing weekend. The physical grounds of the property are obviously amazing; however, I wish to pay particular homage to the entire Four Seasons Staff. (Service, service, serive....Amazing) I highly encourage would-be newlyweds to meet with Maria Axiotis to discuss and... More

We spent 5 wonderful days at the Four Seasons Biltmore. The property is stunning with its ocean views and beautiful gardens. The rooms are large and well appointed. The ambiance is old school California with great taste. We had a one bedroom suite that gave us free access to the Coral Casino and Beach and Cabana Club with its amazing... More

Overall I give the 4 Seasons high marks. The location cannot be beat, literally right on the ocean, and a bit away from the bustle of downtown SB. The staff is extremely pleasant, friendly and helpful. The property, common areas and rooms are very clean and well kept? You may want to be fussy about your room. Rooms that face... More

The Four Seasons Resort the Biltmore Santa Barbara has always been one of our families special places. My husband and I live in Orange County and visit the Biltmore several times a year for long weekends. The service, staff and amenities are by far the best that I have ever seen. We love to swim at the Coral Casino (Private... More

This was my second time at this hotel and I absolutely love it. The service and friendliness of the staff at every turn is excellent. The concierge, front desk, valet, landscaping, food service, and housekeeping staff are each not only very good at their jobs, but also very friendly and helpful towards guests. We received outstanding service in particular from... More

Amazing place to stay if you can swing it. So cool and unigue. A real old-school feel and friendly service. Spectacular room, great location and super peaceful setting. Would happily recommend it to anyone looking to stay upscale in Santa Barbara.

We got married this Sept. My husband and I had a hard time finding a venue to get married. When we first got there our first impression was great. Really pretty ! ( but there's lots of pretty places especially in Santa Barbara) We were sold on this venue when we met Akiko. The sweetest person... Kind and patient. Akiko... More

Would have been a 5 but the bike and wifi use were not complimentary. Staff is awesome and always very accommodating! The grounds and views (NOT FROM THE ROOMS) are amazing. There are very view rooms at this hotel that have views, the majority are in the gardens which makes them a little dark, but very private.

I was excited to book a Four Seasons room for my husband's 40th birthday weekend. Boy was I disappointed! I didn't have a bad stay but at the price I paid for a premium room, I was expecting a lot more. I have stayed in other luxury hotels for approximately half the price (Trump Waikiki and Trump Chicago coming immediately... More
