    Very nice resort, friendly staff and perfect location

  • Family with children
    8.2

    We stayed more than a week and the personnel was always very nice and ready to help you. Accomodations (outdoor swimming pool, sauna, health center, mini golf & tennis corts) are very good and well maintained. Restaurants, bar & Pool terrasse served excellent food. Our room was large, quite & well located within the resort. Easy to go to the large Santa Barbara beach. Not too far from Santa Barbara main street (shopping, restaurants, ...).

    Expensive daily parking fee (18 USD per day) even there is no real alternative. Expensive laundry services. Not enough space around the outdoor swimming pool to relax & enjoy (mainly on Friday, Saturday & Sunday). Too often, not enough persons to serve you at breakfast time and lunch time in August (waiting time is too higher for such location!).

    Electricity was off for more than two hours. In complete darkness at early evening. Sitting in dark with 92 year old mom who had her own room but couldnt use had to come in our room during that time.. We couldnt get around but sit in the dark. Should of had back up generators.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    It's a fine place to take a rest before la, and to finish a long trip on the road. Santa Barbara is a nice town and shopping is cool. The resort hotel is on the seaside, even to swin is difficult. Nice place.

  • Older travelers
    9.0

    The location, and patio and view of the ocean. Rooms not bad but pricey.

    We felt the buffet was very average- fair selection, with average tasting food. For the price they charge we are going to look elsewhere next time.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    Good location, comfortable beds

    Hotel is rather tired. In need of renovation. For the rate I paid I felt it was disappointing and I would not choose it again. It was poor value for money. The hotel corridors were dirty and smelled. The photographs of this hotel on its website are very flattering. Do not be fooled!!

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The location is optimal and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms were large and well furnished, and the beds very comfortable. The hotel was very quiet. The concierge was very helpful.

    A refrigerator was listed as an amenity with our room. We had to call twice before they sent one up. The $18.00 a day parking fee as a hotel guest is ridiculous!!!

  • Couple

    Quite confortable

    Shoulded have gone with a better weather!!

  • Family with children

    It was a very nice place. Exactly what we expected.

    The price was quite high compared to the hotels in the area.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    We were really pleased with our interconnecting rooms, staff were extremely willing to make our stay special.We loved the location, the pool, the fantastic buffet breakfast/brunch.

  • Family with children

    Staff is overworked. You are understaffed and it shows

  • Family with children

    The pool was warm enough to have fun even in the end of November. Many other hotels with claim a heated outdoor pool only barely heat them.

    WiFi and parking for additional fee; toiletries just for one person (we had to use our own to cover the deficit); old and worn everything inside; no refrigerator (the minibar could not be used as one, due to a very low power); urinal smell in the corridor outside of the room;

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Excellent staff-- the front door staff and front desk staff were very friendly, courteous, and helpful. The only staff member who was not helpful worked at the hotel gift shop - she was in an obvious hurry to leave for the evening and when asked where a drug store may be located, her answer was "it's 5 minutes away, ask the front desk how to get there." But other than that encounter, everyone was very courteous. We enjoyed our stay!

    We were originally in an oceanfront room in an outside building, which was dark and musty. We requested and were changed to the main building, which was much more pleasant. The outer building rooms need to be updated/renovated.
