Free coffee and tea in the bar in the morning.
Our clients often stay here. Just 20 min North to the Hollister Ranch gatehouse.
Location, location, location. I recommend a room on top level with partial or full ocean views. Garden views can be iffy depending where your room is located. We stayed in 20 308, awesome room/view.
Free coffee in the Spa Cafe, table by the elevator.
Request suites closest too pool
Spa amenities free for guests: sauna, eucalyptus steam, indoor jacuzzi, 3 saline pools, outdoor jacuzzi, gym, exercise classes. Guided hike or stroll along beach yourself. "Fresh" brand spa products.
Ask for them to shuttle you to your room upon arrival. Even with the map, you won't be able to find it & it's a hard walk on hills and stone grounds in stilettos with luggage in tow.
Make sure they clean the hot tub in the spa before you walk in. Make sure they don't just forget to clean your room. And don't pay a $35 corkage fee at the bistro. At the pool they will just open it.
Avoid walking barefoot on the beach. Apparently oil leaks out "naturally" and you'll find tarballs on the beach. We seen a bunch of people wiping tar off their feet after a walk on the beach.
The general manager, Larry, is really great.
I have been to several of the high end resorts in and around Santa Barbara before. compared to the others Bacara was over rated and more of a hype. Although it was beautiful the service was less than motel 6, and the rooms were not maintained well. The spa and resturants were only open at certiain times. personally it was a waist of money.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bacara for a get away weekend in Santa Barbara. WOW! The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. It so nice to get away, no cell phone just the ocean good food and good company.
We always have a fantastic stay at Bacara. Great service, nice spa and just a short walk to the beach. Highly recommended.
I adore this resort. The spa is amazing, and the grounds are gorgeous. You're also a short walk from the beach. Watch for celebrity sighti...
The restaurants could use some improvement as far as service and quality of food. We had some ok to not so good food here at the hotel. Because it is so far from downtown, there is really nowhere else closeby to go eat. We had dinner at their Miro restaurant which was such a bad dining experience.. no atmosphere, unusually quite and the wait for the food painfully long. It took almost four hours for a three course meal, in which half of our party left before the third course. Eight hundred dollars later, I left hungry. The pool is beautiful and the service by the pool I found excellent, but overall a disappointing experience. This was my second stay here and I think my last.
I was brought to the Bacara Resort & Spa by my significant other on a surprise weekend getaway for my birthday and it was breathtaking! The service staff was very very attentive and catered to every single little thing we needed....rides around the property, making dinner reservations, spa appointments, hiking appointment, and horseback riding...u name it! This place was truly the perfect place to get away from the noisy, fast-paced city (we are from Los Angeles). The entire weekend, I was so relaxed and catered to, I didn't lift a finger or had a bad thought. Their two restaurants serve great food and drinks! The pool area is gorgeous with the beach yards away. I think the courteous and warm staff makes all the difference in our experience. We have stayed at very nice places before but staff with their high-and-mighty attitudes ruin it for us most of the time...However, this was never the case at Bacara. Their spa was so-so...only because there isn't much more relaxed u can be while being on this property. :o)
This was the absolute best hotal I have ever been to. The rooms were beautiful, each one had a balcony, outstanding beds, and the floors were absolutely gorgeous. The hotel itself was just breathe taking and so was the view of the ocean. The pools were magnificant. Altogether it was a wonderful experience and i would recommend it to anyone vising Santa Barbara.
Bacara Resort & Spa is a really great place to stay. We stayed there for our anniversary and the service was great. They take you around on golf carts wherever you want to go. The food was great too. They even give you nice robes and slippers to wear. It has a beautiful view, being right next to the ocean.
