This is an exceptional hotel that caters to its guests with the finest service and amenities. We stayed in a cottage on a campus of small buildings all tied by brick walkways. We got lost the first time but understood the signage by the second day. The room had a large bathroom and a fireplace. The bed was large and comfortable but the tv a bit small. Dead quiet. Very comfy. Restaurant and spa more like a family inn than hotel. Fantastic

Stayed here for our Babymoon over the weekend and brought the dog (figured we'd spoil him one last time before the attention was off him for a while.) Check in was painless, and though our room wasn't quite ready at 3:30pm, they comp'd us a couple drinks (mine boozeless) on the patio while we waited. Everyone was so friendly and seemed genuinely excited to meet the dog (hotel only allows service animals on the patio - FYI.) And the valets always had treats for him when we were picking up our ...

Have not been to the El Encanto since 1987 but after hearing about its rebranding and rebuild we decided to give it a go for 3 nights just before New Years. From the moment we drove in, we were treated like royalty. They upgraded our room to a great bungalow and basically left us alone from there until we needed anything. Food was great, every meal. Really, no reason to leave the property if you just want to relax. Which is exactly what we wanted. We did grab the electric Townie bikes a couple t... Read more

We stayed for a long weekend getaway and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As many note the property is beautiful with a fantastic view of the ocean. An unexpected surprise was the quality of the food, we enjoyed breakfast, brunch, and dinner outdoors on the patio and all were some of the best we've had recently coupled of course with the stunning views. Our massages at the spa were great - so nice that they felt too short. :) Food and valet service were friendly and attentive. Only things holding ba... Read more

Gorgeous views. Large private suites. Comfy beds. Heated tile bathroom floors. All these things are present and well accounted for. The best thing though, hands down, is the level of service and attention by the staff. I can't say enough good things about the staff, from (and maybe especially the valet staff) to the room staff, front desk and restaurant servers, there is nothing to really be desired. We can't wait to go back. One thing I would like to see is an improvement in the food served i... Read more

Hotel is expensive but you get what you pay for. Our room was spacious and more importantly quiet, we heard nothing. We slept amazingly well. The restaurant deck area was beautiful and food delicious. One minor complaint, we thought the lettuce for the ceasar salad could have been fresher. It tasted a bit like refrigerator air. We didnt' get to try breakfast as it was cold and raining when we went and we did not feel like venturing out. It would be a good addition to be able to get a complimenta... Read more

Flat out one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Staff goes above and beyond and the property is stunning. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic getaway in Santa Barbara. It is not far from beautiful wine country of Santa Ynez.

This is a High end hotel overlooking SB. an older hotel but get the flavor of old SB... The hotel is comfortable as an old pair of jeans. The food is great, the pool, and views all first rate. Try getting a room in one of the "older" buildings although each room is charming. The staff is all about helping you have a perfect stay. But all this comes with a pretty high price.

We spent 3 nights over the Christmas holiday at one of our favorite places in the world ‚?? El Encanto, located in the hills of Santa Barbara, CA. My husband and I were married at El Encanto, beside the lily pond and had not returned since the new property-wide renovations had been completed. We have many wonderful memories of traveling north from Los Angeles for weekend get-a-ways when we lived in Southern California. The property is as gorgeous as ever, and they have managed to keep the or... Read more

We booked our room in October for our post-Christmas holiday stay. My husband and I travel to Los Angeles a few times a year so that my daughter can see her father, and we use the opportunity to enjoy the ocean view, hike the canyons, and try out local cuisine. My husband and I splurge on travel more than we do on "things" and so take care when choosing hotels, trails, and restaurants. Prior to arrival, we were excited because the room level we selected included a fireplace, a private deck, a s... Read more
