Besides a bad check in experience (we arrived late, and the woman checking us in sent us the wrong way to our rooms), it was a great stay at a lovely resort.

bah-tar-ah hotel
Property/rooms are nice. Has a Vegas hotel vibe, but on the beach. Family friendly, even in the adults only pool - someone did not read the signs. Party girl friendly too! Interesting mix, right? If allergic to dogs, not a good place since this place is also Fido friendly. Dog bed and bowl was all made up in room. The patch of grass outside of room looked worn out from dog relief and needed to be freshened up. Beach view is amazing from here but littered with tar. Impossible to walk on beach without getting on shoes or feet. Hotel provides oils solvents. Over all - it was a little bit of a let down for the price. I read similar reviews and now I agree. But the bed is seriously comfortable. But here is the let down..I have a pet peeve, cleaning service knocking on doors at 8:30 A.M. on a Saturday morning in a resort? Why would any good hotel management allow this to happen at a resort hotel.

Amazing staff
This property is very nice, located north of Santa Barbara. For me I was in the area on business so it seemed like a logical stay, however I am not sure why else I would stay here unless however I was passing through or I guess wanting to stay and vacation in SB itself. The property was extremely quiet and great if you were a couple of stay. I did not use the pool area or other amenities. All staff is amazing and the central bar was comfortable
