San Ysidro ranch is an idyllic , charming and cozy spot. Some of the employees and the best , have been working here for more than 20 years. They are proud of their work and of the place.

My husband and I spent three nights in the Honeysuckle room for our 10 year wedding anniversary. It was worth the splurge. This is the most romantic hotel I have ever been to. They have thought of every little touch. They do charge handsomely for everything, on top of the already extravagant room charges (20% service fee plus delivery fee... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at SYR. We stayed in the darling and very charming Tangerine cottage. The cottage was perfect. Comfy bed, very private hot tub for 2, indoor/outdoor shower, everything! We had two meals at Angel and Plow, as well as room service. The property is breathtaking. It's quite lush, especially considering the terrible drought... More

Between the room, the service, the grounds, the restaurant and the adjacent hiking area, we can't simply say enough. Exquisite. Morning work outs by the heated pool followed by a swim and a great massage in the spa.

This hotel and its facilities were absolute perfection for our wedding weekend. We stayed in the Eucalyptus Suite which is tucked away towards the top of the property in a quiet corner. We liked it better than another suite we stayed in closer to the main entrance, which was a bit noisier. We love the eclectic Asia meets Mexican hacienda... More

This is by far my favorite place to stay when in the Montecito/Santa Barbara area. It is the most special place. It's quiet, secluded and romantic - with the most amazing gardens. Everything is top notch, from the service, to the decor and the food. Most of the rooms are private bungalows so there are no issues with noise from... More
