"A well-managed, gorgeous hotel!"
From check-in to check-out my husband and I felt welcomed and appreciated. The hotel upgraded our Deluxe room to Premier, and gifted us iced champagne, chocolates and macarons for our 25th anniversary. Our cottage room -- comfortable, large -- was at the edge of the property, which could be a negative, but that made it more convenient to self-park. The spacious, ADA-accessible bathroom was attractive and well tended by housekeeping (the maid carefully arranged our toothbrushes, etc., on washcloths...great attention to detail). The deep-pillow-topped bed was luxurious. Our patio was not usable, as it bordered the parking lot and got noise from a ventilation system nearby, and cigarette smoke from next door. One night our neighbors had a loud, drunken fight (we phoned the front desk and they responded quickly). The next day the manager gifted us a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates, with a hand-written note apologizing for the disturbance. I was disappointed that the very small swimming pool was boiling with boisterous children most of the day, but I enjoyed swimming and walking on Butterfly Beach. Be aware that the hotel website can mislead you into thinking that the massive, beach-front pool featured there is the hotel pool! It is, in fact, in the club across the street, included only with top-level rooms. For other guests the cost is $200/day -- possibly worth it for a family with kids, or if you will use it for a full day. Not worth it for me.

"A Place in The Sun!"
Our experience was great because we have our two small dogs with us and that was everything to us including being in front of the water on the beach in Santa Barbara. Get lots of ice specially in the summer time. We stayed on the first floor it was very peaceful and quiet at night.
