A legend since opening in 1927, Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara is a classic Spanish Colonial estate infused with modern luxury. Offering direct access to Butterfly Beach, our 207 hotel accommodations are set amidst 22 acres (9 hectares) of lush gardens woven with sun-dappled, red-brick pathways. Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara defines luxury living and service on the American Riviera. Most guest rooms and suites are located in our two-storey main buildings. We also have a unique collection of 12 free-standing bungalows nestled within secluded jungle gardens. Capturing the essence of the classic California bungalow, each one comprises two to four Bungalow Rooms or Suites.

Spend a day on the sand sharpening your beach volleyball skills with two-time Olympian, gold medallist and Santa Barbara native Todd Rogers as your personal coach. You’ll meet at iconic East Beach, world-famous for its beach volleyball, where Rogers will share the tips he’s picked up in 19 years as a professional player. When you’re ready to show off your new skills, join Rogers behind the net or face off with the Olympic champ for a friendly match. When the sand settles, sit back and enjoy a delicious beach picnic catered by Four Seasons. Over your meal, recap the morning’s best rallies and hear about Todd’s journey to becoming one of the most decorated American male beach volleyball players, as well as his local’s insights into beautiful Santa Barbara. This once-in-a-lifetime experience can be tailored to any age, skill level and interest to include a lesson, match play, or advanced training for already skilled players. To enhance the experience for single players and families, Todd can arrange for additional players to participate, whether they are his training partners or his own family (all volleyball players).

This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at with a lot of old world charm. It's the best in Santa Barbara because it's next to the beach. I love this place and the service is a cut above. The lounge at sunset is great.

We arrived at The Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel late in the day. The fog had rolled in, so our upgraded room (703) with a balcony and ocean view didn’t fully capture this fabled property that first opened in 1927. We decided to hang in the hotel for dinner that evening at the Bella Vista restaurant, and then headed back to the room to change for a dip in the 102-degree hot tub. Needless to say, we crashed in one helluva comfortable bed with top quality linens and pillows — perhaps the best we’ve ever had. The next day we strolled around the property and stumbled upon an herb garden with blood orange and lemon trees. There’s nothing like the taste of a freshly picked blood orange. The quaint town of Montecito is a 10 minute walk (over a bridge spanning a wicked 101 Freeway). We walked in and out of the shops, and noticed this most unusual swan-like plant. Twelve hours at The Biltmore was way too short, but we still had places to go, people to see. On to Malibu for a bite of lunch.

Peaceful and relaxing stay! Guests have access to the Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club in addition to their hotel facilities. Great buffet brunch ! Bikes for rent at a minimal price. Perfect way to go downtown and grab a meal. Valet service is excellent too. Lots of good restaurants around the vicinity.

Nice facility about 6-7km away from the town but as we discovered later ... not the best in SB as it was sold to us. Also, not one of the best Four Seasons that I have been to before.... It was unfortunate that we got caught by the flush floods disaster with a 5am wake up and 13pm evacuation to follow. Staff are amazing but overall the facility is a ‘try hard’. You can have a different perspective if your room is in the main building but that is expensive. If you room is one in the wings the trip to your room and back can be chore. We didn’t mind but we have seen elderly people struggling to walk from their room to the reception and Restaurant area. They have two restaurants but they count the room service as the third one.... first time I have seen that marketing stretch. One restaurant is Bella Vista - and I have a separate review for that. The other is a Thai theme with a nice interior but the lights are way to dark to be able to see anything. It may that it was designed for early couples and not for families or business discussions. At evacuation we discovered that their emergency power is battery based so when it runs out it is all over. The electrical switchboards and boilers, etc are in the basement so once the electric power is affected.... the place is dead. No lifts, no hot water, no lights... Their staff were amazing and everyone was thankful for their support considering what they had to deal with.

I recently booked a stay at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara through AMEX travel for January 4th-5th. On New Year's Eve, I received an e-mail from the hotel informing me that my reservation was being cancelled because the hotel was closed and would remain closed through the date of my reservation. At no time when I booked my reservation (prior to Christmas) or afterwards was I ever informed--either by the hotel or AMEX--that the hotel was closed or that the possibility existed that the hotel would not be open by my reservation date. I booked flights and made other reservations predicated on my hotel stay, none of which I would have made had I received the courtesy of informing me that the hotel was not, in fact, open. I expect more from the Four Seasons and AMEX travel.
