I saw this hotel had a five star rating but I was knocked out by the spa! My friend and I travel to different spas in different locations twice a year but the spa at this hotel is by far the most luxurious, beautiful and friendly spa we have been to. The hotel grounds are gorgeous, the view of the...

We had a great weekend at this hotel. It is child friendly… staff were nothing but kind and accommodating to our little girl. During check-in one of the staff gave her a little stuffed owl which was very welcoming. We stayed in a cottage that was a nice size for the three of us. Everything was very easy. The train…...

We loved our four day winter get away at this incredible Four Seasons Resort. We attended an out door December wedding, and it was amazing. The lush garden provided beautiful contrasting botanical backdrop for the ceremony. The restaurant and bar consistently provided variety and quality. On site gym was nicely equipped. Over all service through out was world class. And...

I have never experienced such luxury, beauty, and service. The Biltmore is incredible! The bath tub was enormous, the room service food delicious, and the room was very relaxing. The only drawback that I can think up is that the train is loud, so sleeping with the window/door open the first night was a bit rough, but they provide earplugs,...

The food will knock your socks off if th views haven't already. Right on Butterfly beach in Montecito, and walking distance to the little lower village of Montecito, CA. The grounds are beautiful, people are nice, and the food is amazing.

We had a wonderful trip to the Biltmore 2/5-2/8. Staff was fabulous, room was immaculate, the surrounding are a true delight. Be sure and walk the grounds to check out the rare plants and trees. The highlight was the Coral Casino. Don't let the $200/ day fee get in your way, it is wonderful!

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at the Biltmore .We checked in on a weekday for an overnight stay. We booked a deluxe king room. The room was very nice, clean and has a big bathroom but I found the bedroom area to be small in size compared to other five star hotels. Also when you open the door ,...

Short trip up to the Four Seasons for my husband's birthday. We stayed the weekend. All I can say is the service was amazing!!! We just got a basic room since we weren't going to be spending much time there. We explored the Funk Zone and the wine trail and then had dinner at the hotel. The hotel brought us...

Excellent quality hotel facilities and rooms and the entire staff seemed to always know who we were and provided individual attention throughout our stay. Very accommodating to families and pets (though I didn't bring a pet, just saw others).

I really loved the grounds of this hotel/resort. Lots of beautiful tropical plants and trees. My room was excellent. Big soft bed, lots of space to move around, french doors that lead outside to a small and partially secluded private patio. Huge bathroom, which makes me think that this was a wheelchair accessible room. Everyone of the staff I met...
