The staff was incredibly warm and friendly from start to finish. The room was also incredible and had many amenities that would make this ideal for a family or if you were planning on spending most of your time enjoying the resort including a well-stocked kitchen, a great gym, and what looked like a beautiful pool area (it was too cold for us to enjoy this part). The restaurant had some of the best gyozas and yakatori I've ever had, and the breakfasts were phenomenal. The only knock was that there wasn't a bathroom door, so maybe don't go with people you aren't comfortable with.
We chose to stay on the north coast and use a rental car to explore the island (and go scuba diving off the south coast) and we couldn't have been happier than our choice to stay at Santa Barbara Eco-Beach Resort. The beach is stunning to watch, the villas are modern, spacious, clean, and comfortable; the staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as room service. The private jacuzzi is worth it! Our daughter loved the outdoor pool as well as the indoor one at the wellness center which we were able to reserve for her daily. Most importantly, we had two separate bedrooms, for our daughter and us, and the resort helped us set up a daily babysitter who watched our daughter for 5-6 hours 4 days a week and 2-3 evenings a week when she was asleep so we could leave the resort to go out to dinner. The babysitter was wonderful and made our stay perfect as we could enjoy grown-up things while our daughter had a fantastic time at the resort. The whole family loved our stay here and would recommend it to any other families. A great home base from which to enjoy the natural beauty of this wonderful island.
Spend a few days here with my partner and we really enjoyed our time. Couldn‘t be closer to the beach and we lived in a studio with private pool which was the perfect place to hang out after a full day of hiking. Friendly team, highly recommended.
Amazing setting along the coast line of Santa Barbara. Very well designed eco resort,
great pools, beautiful nature!.........and then comes the food!! Oh what a night!!! Only local fresh fish straight out of the Atlantic. Very creative presentation, quality cuts, fresh,fresh, fresh!!!!!............Need to say more???
Our family staied in August for a week. The 2 bedroom garden villas are really confortable. The view is to a small garden with a lake, but it is very quiet and relaxed, just silence and the little birds and bats (at night). We had a big bath in one of the rooms, it was great to relax ... the bad part is the toilet inside of the bedroom. There is a glass around it, but you can stll see, ear, .... The waking shower in the other bedroom was great and there was a wall separating the bathroom from the beds. The service was good, you have a balcony to the garden and can just relax. The swimming pool had very few people, sometimes it was just the 4 of us. The hotel is just on top of the beach, you can enjoy the sea which is very nice clear water and not that cold. Great for surfing! The hotel restaurant was good, with oriental gourmet dishes (bit expensive). The sushi, was fresh but again on a "creative side". Breakfast was very good, always a different fresh juice of the day (plus the orange juice), basket of pastries and bread, cheeses and hams, and you can orther hot food, pancakes, fresh iogurts, porrige .... Staff is very nice.
