“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

My son and I stayed at the Four Seasons on our way to Santa Monica. We stayed for 1 night. The service is excellent. I made the mistake of booking the room that gives you the ability to take advantage of the beach club across the street. Don't do it. It is not worth the $200 extra. The Four Seasons has everything you need. Pool, spa and great food. The room we had was amazing. The concierge service gave us great recommendations for dinner. I had a great homemade granola bar from the juice bar at the Beach Club. The juice bar closes at 1:00. When I asked the concierge at 1:30 if I could get another bar she said she would check into it. She called they said "No" to late. The next thing I know I was surprised when I went to check out 2 hours later she had a gift for me --the homemade granola bar. She went out of her way to get it for me. No charge. I would stay here again. Fantastic.

Loved it! Great trip with the kids. Always have a wonderful time here in SB!! The service is superb, we had a beautiful upgraded room and the pool is always wonderful for the kids. A wonderful way to end a camping trip at El Capitan. Although the hotel is on the older side it still has the charm and comform you would expect from a four seasons. It is not cheep, but for a treat it is worth it!

Every detail was perfection, especially with the help of the Catering Manager, Akiko Suzuki. The location of the hotel and the Coral Casino couldn't get any better. The staff were eager to help and provide anything we needed. The food at the reception was just fabulous, even though to most it would have seemed mundane, they made it look like and taste like nouvelle Mexican. Our hotel room was wonderful, bright airy and very roomy.
We live in Santa Barbara, but it was lovely to experience this resort as guest, I think I would have been very impressed as were many of our wedding guests from out of town.
My daughter and son-in-law had a wedding they will always remember.

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel are sunnier than the cottages in the back of the hotel

From the moment you arrive and they open your door the Four Season treatment begins. They are very attentive. Our room was beautiful and well equipped. We enjoyed the fireplace even in August. The grounds are beautiful and well manicured. You can walk for hours just on the grounds. It is very close walking distance to Monticeto for restaurants and shops. The spa treatments are amazing with many options. Bella, Ty and Tydes are restaurants at the resort and all are wonderful. We spent time at the pool and across at the Casino lap pool, both perfect for relaxing, sun bathing or swimming. Both pools have a hot tub. We look forward to going back next summer.

The hotel property itself is beautiful with great views of the ocean and a decent beach. There's access to a private beach club with a great pool. Rooms are ok - despite renovations they still show their (very old) age. Service was great although I wish they were more open about the possibility of self parking at significantly cheaper rates or even for free instead of making it seem like valet at $35+ a day was the only option. Breakfast was excellent. You'll need a car to get to State street in Santa Barbara where everything is located - biking is not a straightforward coastal route but winds inland a bit. Excellent access to the freeway.

Everything was perfect so no comment. From the personal greetings at your arrival - and throughout your stay - all the way to the last second in this establishment, everything exudes attention to detail. I wish I could have stayed longer to try all the facilities of the hotel...
