How it Ranks: Bacara Resort & Spa ranks #3 out of 37 Santa Barbara Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: The Bacara Resort & Spa in Goleta, Calif., has all the essentials of a luxury, seaside resort—the spa, the two golf courses, the incredible pools, the fine dining, and the dramatic Pacific views. There is even a 1,000-acre ranch that abuts the Los Padres National Forest, where guests can take scenic hikes and explore the avocado and citrus groves. Bacara's 354 luxurious guestrooms feature gas or wood-burning fireplaces, marble showers, and private patios or balconies. But despite all the bells and whistles, some guests say this lavish Californian resort is too pricey, and add that some of the resort staff are less than welcoming. Still, if you've got money to burn, this paradise is a sumptuous place to do it.
