My wife and I spent our anniversary this year travelling from San Francisco to LA over a ten day period. During the time, we stayed in four 5-star resorts and both of us agreed that Belmond was the top choice for us. The staff is great and the setting is over the top. The hotel is laid out with paths connecting the different cottages spread over the property. We loved the pool and the restaurant/bar. It was also nice that they have cars that will shuttle you around the greater Santa Barbara area.
Our only negative comment was that there was a local guy (not a hotel guest) in the bar one night who was really drunk. He sat with us for a while and everything was fine, but after a bit, he started acting really crazy and we had to leave and return to our room. We were surprised that the hotel management allowed this guy to hang out and bother hotel guests. Otherwise, our stay could not have been better!
Thank you to the hotel staff!More
