Fodor's Review

Surrounded by lush, perfectly manicured gardens and across from the beach, Santa Barbara's grande dame has long been a favorite for quiet, California-style luxury. The sumptuous 10,000-square-foot spa near the resort's pool and gardens, which includes 11 treatment rooms, is an oasis for rejuvenation. Guests also enjoy privileges at the historic, members-only Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club and Tydes restaurant across the street. Dining is upscale casual at the ocean-view

Bella Vista Restaurant, where the California-Italian menu changes seasonally.
