I work for a large corporation in Los Angeles and had to plan a trip for 9 co-workers looking to get away together for a fun, relaxing overnight stay. I got in contact with Chelsea Richey in the sales department and was able to secure a great rate for the group. She was extremely helpful with not only the reservations but went out of her way to suggest activites and places to dine locally for the group. Unfortunately, I was not able to go on the trip so I can only give you feedback that I got from the group while they were there. I have heard "beautiful resort" "great location" "wonderful service" "very accommodating" "yummy breakfast" and "great rooms."
One of the great things about the group was that three of the people had their spouses drive to Santa Barbara and bring their dogs for an extended stay. The hotel is pet friendly and there are dog friendly beaches nearby.
They ate breakfast at Cafe Los Arcos and everyone said that breakfast was "delicious"
Everyone could not say enough about the resort, the area and the spa. The spa was wonderful! They were able to accommodate a group of 9 on short notice and Julie, the spa manager, was extremely helpful, extremely professional and was able to move the scheduling around when our group needed to leave earlier.
I would recommend this hotel and spa to anyone who asks. This is a great hotel for a getaway because of the location, a great hotel for a group because of the rates and accommodations and a great hotel for couples and families because of the activities that the resort and the local town of Santa Barbara offer. I cannot wait to visit with my family and my dog!!
