THE ONLY place to stay when visiting SB!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 16, 2010

The property is spectacular and some of the rooms offer marvelous ocean views. The suites are charming but VERY expensive! The spa has a 90 minute massage called the Bacara Body Melt which is the best I've EVER had and we travel the world over. Don't expect a bargain as the place is extremely pricy, but I believe I get my money's worth which is why I keep coming back! My son went to UCSB and Bacara is the only place I would consider staying.

Unique Quality: Plan on splurging and indulging. Just suck it up and get a great suite. I thing it may have been a grand a night, but it's over the water with 2 bedrooms and the room, atmosphere, ocean smell is all marvelous. The shop has lovely unusual clothes and my only caveat is don't plan on getting a good deal. It's a great place and you're paying for it!!!

Gorgeous Escape!

The Bacara is a gorgeous spot. I recently attended a wedding at this beautiful hotel. The rooms are spacious and lovely. The beds are comfortable, and the bathroom is large with a great shower (strong shower head, very important) and a beautiful that you can soak in while watching tv or enjoying the view out your window.

Unique Quality: What is most lovely about the Bacara are the grounds. It is so peaceful. I recommend having breakfast delivered to your room and eating it outside on the patio. Ours was private and serene ... we felt like it was our own backyard. Definitely take a walk around the grounds. It is romantic and peaceful.

Bacara - Paradise in CA

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 27, 2005

Huge, beautiful resort just north of downtown Santa Barbara. Sits right on the beach. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Spa treatments are wonderful, but pricey. The on-site restaurant, Miro, was excellent and very pricey. ;)

Comparable to Hotel Hana in Maui, with much better food.

Directions: Right off of N 101 along CA coast, just north of Santa Barbara
