Our time there was absolutely wonderful. Just the memory brings Joy! The property feels tropic with the magnificent palm trees and fragrant plants and flowers. This is one of my all time favorite Biltmore properties. The staff are friendly and helpful from the check receptionist to the valet. I enjoyed the easy walk to the Spa and work out room....

I will for sure be back and will miss this beautiful hotel until that time! Came in to see a UCSB basketball game (Go Gauchos!) with the family and was so impressed with the staff and grounds. Everyone was so helpful and polite the grounds were lush green and so beautifully manicured. Kevin at the front desk checked us in,...

My wife and I stayed at the Biltmore because of my wife's fondness for tropical-ish gardens. These were wonderful, but everything else was even more fantastic. Location, none better, room amazingly appointed for an older hotel. Staff, unbelievably friendly without being too intrusive or familiar. Meals were to die for.

What a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting. Wonderful amenities, comforts, and dining. This is a classic Four Seasons in all its glory. Personnel, in all areas, is professional, knowledgable, and very friendly. It's located in a beautiful area on the ocean, and you can hear the waves on the lovely outdoor patio. The patio is one of our favorite...

A very unique historic property with a beautiful garden setting overlooking the ocean. We booked the deluxe category room which gives access to the incredibly cool private club across the street, none of which feels touristy, and all of which is way more interesting than the standard "fancy beige" Four Seasons resort design. Typically awesome Four Seasons service.

This is a 5 star hotel and it is well deserved. Southwest Airlines lost my luggage and as I arranged to have it delivered to my room a staff member handed me a complimentary toothbrush and toothpaste. Very helpful staff. The pool area with large (pool size) hot tubs was beautiful as were the fitness facilities. The rooms were elegant...

Very nice hotel that was clean and had the Four Seasons level of service and amenities. Also had a good bar and restaurant. Workout room was very clean and had a good variety of machines and equipment. Note: the pool at the hotel is fairly average, but if your rate includes the Coral Casino across the street, that has a...

One of the best hotel experiences in my entire life, amazing place and services. The hotel is very well located, very clean, comfortable, staff is very kind and professional. The restaurant that serves the breakfast has a beautiful view, in front of the ocean, with very good food.

I recently surprised my husband with a long weekend away celebrating Valentine's Day and his birthday. I was pretty impressed with all of the amenities, most of the service and especially all of the atmosphere. Nicely done. I am notoriously hard to please and I found very little to complain about. A hotel we visited after fell far short of...
