From the drive up the the hotel, to cobblestone courtyard (littered with exotic cars), to the Spanish tiled and Moorish inspired lobby (and of course, the impeccable service), and the beachfront location, this Four Seasons does NOT disappoint.

This particular Four Seasons takes you back to bygone era and you can sense the high end clientele and celebrities who used to seek accommodations here. The buildings of the main compound and grounds have been wonderfully restored and systems updated. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. An operable stained glass window in our room was a plus. The bedding...

Great service, great pool at the Casino Club. The main restaurant with its outdoor heated patio is the place to be. Not many ocean view rooms. Mission decor but classy nonetheless. Good for a 3-5 break. Good food and wine in SB. Visit Solvang and go to the Landsby for a drink in the evening.

We stayed 2 nights because we were driving up the coast to Napa. Great hotel and staff! Small complaint was that there was not enough counter space in the bathroom.The room was comfortable and very up to date with technology. The hotel grounds was spectacular.

The best thing I can say about the Biltmore is the view is fabulous from the outdoor dining area. Sitting there, listening to the waves pound on the sand while sipping a glass of pink bubbles doesn't suck. However, be prepared to pay $30 for said glass of bubbles. Overall I thought this was a beautiful property. I was a...

The 6 nights staying in a roomy well appointed bungalow were a great experience. Top flight staff provided excellent customer service. Evening drinks in Ty's Lounge watching the sunset were a highlight.

My husband and I went for a wedding. I had wanted to stay there for years and it was as great as I'd imagined. The setting is beautiful and the service was great. We got upgraded to a huge junior suite. Perfect!

The Biltmore is a wonderful property in an excellent location. The architecture is very pleasing. The grounds contain many beautiful and secluded spaces that are available for various functions. The Bella Vista cafe is quite good and there is ample cafe space outside with water views. The Ty bar is tastefully done and one can order food from the cafe....

There is no doubt that this historic hotel is lovingly preserved, with lush grounds and modern touches. The location, overlooking the ocean, is breathtaking. We arrived on Christmas Day, looking forward to four relaxing days there. And for the most part that is what we experienced, but not without a few dings. We booked a Riviera room, which is the...
