U.S. News Review

With stunning views of the Pacific from its shorefront perch east of downtown Santa Barbara, the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara is consistently lauded by guests for its friendly staff and stunning decor. The Spanish Colonial Revival structure houses 207 spacious guest rooms and suites feel bright and airy with yellow design accents, while visitors say that the down bedding adds an extra dose of luxury. Recent guests also praise the in-house spa for its extensive list of treatments, but should you desire some R&R without the additional cost, a day spent by the outdoor pool should do just fine. If you're traveling with kids, let the resort's certified staff provide them with a host of supervised activities while you enjoy a romantic meal at Tydes (if you like seafood) or Bella Vista (if you prefer your Californian cuisine infused with some Italian flair).
