Cutting corners on room amenities like extra towels for the hot tub, extra door mats coming in from the hot tub, upgraded shower heads, and extra toiletries, could make this place luxurious! The Restraunt was just so so, but we dined there Xmas Day dinner, so it was a preset menu.

I'm sorry you had the perception of cutting corners. We, of course, always have extra towels for the hot tubs or the bathroom, as we do provide as many toiletries our guests' need. And we are surprised and disappointed that you found our Restaurant "so-so." With the release of our new menus, our Gardens of Avila has been getting very...

My partner and I stayed at Sycamore for a quick escape to celebrate our anniversary. I purchased a Groupon for the King Suite. I called the resort to confirm my reservation, and they were extremely helpful, answering all of my annoying questions with a great enthusiasm and attitude. I mentioned in passing that we would be celebrating an anniversary, that...

We did a last minute visit from nearby Santa Barbara. Loved the beautiful suite with fireplace and hot tub on the porch right in the forest. Clean, lovely, and relaxing. We also rented the Oasis tub for an hour for the family and everyone thought it was a hit.

We stayed at Mystical Suit-Queen. The room is very clean and tidy but the queen size bed is small for 2 adults. My room has own jaczzi and the quality of hotspring is amazing. Some people might not like sulfur smell but this is real hotspring and I bed this is the best hotspring in US!

We have stayed at the Sycamore Mineral Springs resort the last couple of years and have experienced the same problem with Ants each time. They were nice enough to move us to another room this year, but having the experience (twice) of Ants was not good.

I just spoke with our maintenance team. They did tell me that in a few rooms there were ants, mostly because of the rain. We do have a company that comes out twice a month to deal with any issues, which are overall are very few. I'm sorry this has happened to you twice. Please contact me directly before your...

Perfect for a peaceful and relaxing get away. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Grounds were very well kept. Rooms were well appointed and beds were very comfortable. Best of all was the private deck with a hot mineral tub.

Check the reviews as we found the Garden Restaurant outstanding. They have a wonderful chef, service was fine and attention to detail was very nice. Brussels sprouts and sweet potato tacos were the best ever as was the fettuccine seafood. Could not have been more pleased.
