Bacara Resort & Spa in Goleta, California

You might have caught a glimpse of Bacara Resort & Spa during the 2014 season of The Bachelorette, or read about it in Condé Nast Traveler's annual Reader's Choice Awards. The sprawling, Spanish-tiled complex is a perennial fan favorite, but the focus here is on the tranquility offered by the Gaviota Coast, a special stretch of beach that fosters incredible diversity. North America's first inhabitants fished these waters, and today members of the Chumash tribe continue to honor their heritage. Bacara teamed up with local Chumash herbalists, artists and writers to construct a nature trail that immerses guests in culture and natural beauty.

Wake up with lemon custard brioche French toast as the sun peeks over the Santa Ynez mountains. Punctuate an afternoon of Chardonnay-sipping with a gourmet picnic overlooking the vineyards. After a waterfront dinner back at Bacara, snuggle up next to your in-suite fireplace listening to the waves crash onshore with the stay's complimentary bottle.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 days ago

So I've been to a hotel in every state across the country. Been to 2 Star hotel/motels and up to 5 Star Hotel Resorts. So in comparing all of them to the Ritz-Carlton, not gonna happen. It would be like comparing a rock to a souffle or a car and a pebble. LOL yeah, the Ritz-Carlton is in a class of its own. So if you want a bucket list item, here it is. The Ritz-Carlton in Santa Barbara, California. And who knows, you might be there when celebrities stay. They just might be at the table having dinner right in front of you. As far as the Amenities go, too many to count. It's just an incredible place and great service too.

I'd love to be able to tell you about the Thanksgiving Dinner I had at the Ritz Carlton Bacara. Sadly, not looking like it will happen. Maybe the "Ritz Carlton way" has not yet fully infused the property. My wife called 2 weeks ago to make inquiries. The person she spoke to had no answers and she was promised a call back. Never happened. I called 2 days ago. Over the course of 15 minutes, I was transferred to 8 different people and dumped into voicemail twice and I still have no answer. (This includes speaking to someone who did not not know what a "Manager on Duty" is, when I asked to speak to her/him). This does not seem like a place I want to entrust with a special occasion... Pity.

the hotel has everything to cater to everybody. Kids. Pets. all are welcome. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms have the softest mattresses I have ever slept on. Since the hotel just switched over, there are still updates that are to be made to make the property in line to a typical Ritz Carlton, however, the basic stuff is all there. the walk down to the beach is invigorating. the food at the bistro is standard fare, next time will try the steakhouse. a good alternative outside of santa barbara.

I wished we stayed longer. I loved the private (adult only) spa pool, which I had to myself. Also loved gym, spa, sauna/steam and jacuzzi! The family pools also a plus. Beautiful ocean views and both the casual and gourmet restaurants were wonderful. You feel like royalty from the moment you arrive.

We stayed in a beautiful suite with a terrace overlooking the water. The room was immaculate and the view was spectacular. We enjoyed many of the hotel amenities including the bikes where we had a fun bike ride through the woods. We had a romantic walk on the beach and then a wonderful breakfast with a view. We loved this hotel and would return when we are back in the area.
