Everything you'd expect at a Four Seasons. Service was top notch. Food was very good. Setting was gorgeous. The management has done a great job keeping up the property which includes beautiful grounds and facilities - clearly have respected the original hotel but also keeping it modern. I'd highly recommend using the Coral beach club as part of your stay....

This is a lovely hotel just off the beach with good facilities, attractive landscaping, comfortable rooms, and all the facilities you would expect of a Four Seasons Hotel. The staff were very attentive and helpful as well. Valet parking is a bit steep at $35 a day but you can self park 100 yards away for $19 a day in...

It was 1966 when we first stayed at this marvelous place along the coast just outside of Santa Barbara. It was the first night of our honeymoon and for years later we would receive a lovely mailer and invitation to return. We did so on several occasions and we have never been disappointed. The grounds, the architecture, the access to...

This is one of my favorite resorts. Walk into the lobby and step back in time to old California. I spoke to an elderly businessman while at the resort and he said it really doesn't look much different than it did in 1946. If you like classically old things then this resort is for you. I've stayed here many times...

My husband and I, along with our five children stayed at Four Season's last week. I can't rate it highly enough. From the moment we arrived, until we left i found the staff to be extremely polite and attentive. We had a couple of drinks in the bar prior to dinner, the bar staff were also very attentive, and the...

If money is no object, then it would be tough to find anything objectionable about this resort. The private cottages on the property really give you the feeling of privacy and tranquility. The beds and linens are probably more comfortable and lush than most people have in their homes. The location is just steps from the Pacific Ocean. The food...

This was a special occasion and at $1000 a night along with it being an American Express Centurion booking we expected a lot better. But first the positives; the property is beautiful, the grounds a work of art with some amazing history, as is the architecture. The Coral Casino (private pool club) across the road is equally magnificent and like...

We just spent 3 nights here. Everyone was very friendly. The hotel was unique, unlike any other hotel we stayed in. It's spread out with paths to all the guest rooms. I honestly kept getting lost (wish there were a few more signs)...took me probably 4 times to learn my way back to my room! But it was a nice...

We stayed here for two nights on our drive down the California coast. The property is beautiful, the service is courteous, but we were disappointed with how the hotel handled an issue with our room. The first room we were provided was spacious but very poorly situated, the windows looked out directly at the car park. And this was meant...

We stayed in 1-Br suite while staying here. The staff was incredibly helpful as we travel with our 1-year old. Crib, baby tub, fridge all setup prior to us arriving.
