The Bacara Resort was a complete dream to stay at for the few days I was in town at the time. Perfect location and probably the best place to escape all of the city noise and just relax on my vacation. Beautiful rooms and the service was also quite excellent. I would love to stay here again every time I come to town but it was just so expensive! The next time I am going to Santa Barbara I am staying at the South Coast Inn (www.santa-barbara-hotel.com). So elegant and with it being right outside of the city, it is the perfect place as well to escape all of the city noise!
