Exquisite two day stay in this opulent and relaxing setting. The hotel consists of beautiful individual bungalows. Service is excellent and the restaurant cannot be faulted. Pool time was amazing and room and hotel maintained impeccably. Our room was tastefully colonial furnished. About 10 mins drive from State St for shopping and great dinner locations. The walks around the grounds and neighboring area give some great views overlooking Santa Barbara. Staff were friendly and professional. We will be back!!
