Short notice anniversary trip

By: Stephen


Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2018

Our stay at the RC Bacara was picturesque and serene! The ocean front heated pool and bistro made each afternoon swim and breakfast more memorable than we could have imagined. Guest Services were very accommodating and the property was in exquisite shape! We are already planning a return trip for next year!!!

Oldie but a goodie

The Bacara is beautiful, and located in a stunning part of the Santa Barbara coastline. The staff was incredibly hospitable and friendly. The food, especially at the restaurant, was fantastic and memorable. The room we stayed in was spacious and would be great for a family if we had kids. And those VIEWS...it's truly a unique property. Only cons is I'd say it needs a renovation and is a little over-priced for what you get. Also the beach has naturally occurring black tar on it, so we couldn't go for a "walk on the beach". The property had plenty of coastal trails open though to make up for it.
