Wow! This must be one of the most amazing hotels in the world. From the moment we checked in I knew my husband wanted to wow me for our anniversary week vacation in Santa Barbara. I had always wanted to stay here after seeing the hotel many years ago on Oprah and now I can finally say I did. The hotel is just special.. the experience is spoilage for sure! We were in the Poppy cottage.. our own little "house" for a few nights. They welcomed us with a plate of little house made cakes and champagne. The rooms are beautiful.. our canopy bed was so comfortable waking up was tough in the morning. I think the complimentary and upscale amenities make their service very unique - the bath products are all Bulgari and the Coffee Nespresso, Evian, Pelligrino and Santa Barbara goodies that get replenished every day. (of course we can buy on our own but having little touches like this just make it easy.. no one really wants to get charged for extras on a vacation.. large chains should take note) .For breakfast, it is all house made beautifully prepared and delivered to your cottage or wherever you want to eat such as the beautiful rose garden. It is so peaceful and quiet and anything absolutely anything you need is at your service (we were able to get almond milk, multiple newspapers delivered, etc). We hiked from the hotel for a nice workout and took advantage of the pool. The pool is not huge nor is the gym but perfectly fine as its a small property so not many people take advantage of either at once. In fact we were the only one using the gym on our stay. The front desk is great at making reservations for dinner and getting you the reservation you want. (Try the Lark.. a newer fab funky and amazing cuisine restaurant). We did get to dine at the Plow and Angel in a magical outdoor setting.. Simply beautiful. The food is fabulous and large portions .. so we were happy we ordered appetizers and salad and side dishes and shared one entree so we could sample a lot. We even saw a celebrity next to us.. made the experience so fun. So Kudos to my hubby for thinking of me on our 16th anniversary with such an amazing experience.. I'd love to come back with my kids but Im saving this hotel just for us.. Everyone should experience San Ysidro Ranch at least once in their life.. it's truly a wonderful memory and pure spoilage.
