Practically Perfect!
This hotel is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend staying here without a doubt. The service is second to none, everyone was beyond helpful and accommodating. The only thing that I would suggest is eating elsewhere. We went to the affiliate restaurant, Tydes, and the food was so salty it was almost inedible. Our whole party made the same comment. Other than that, I will definitely plan on returning. I can't tell you how beautiful the peoperty is, the pictures can't begin to do it justice. Stay here!!

Excellent location with most amazing service
Excellent hotel with the most amazing service - the best I’ve ever had!! So so impressed. The hotel is A perfect location, overlooking the water. Restaurant is great, rooms are nice and larger than normal (although if you get two beds they’re only doubles not queens) and the spa was great! Can’t express how pleased I was with our stay!!

Exceptional 10,0
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and 4 days to celebrate our wedding anniversary . We also had reserved a room for our adult daughter , her girlfriend and their 2 dogs . Although the resort is expensive - it is well worth it . The grounds are spectacular . Well maintained and very lush . The rooms were immaculate and they had doggie beds for the puppies with play toys , bowls and treats . They surprised us with complimentary Prosecco and lovely chocolates when we arrived . The food at the restaurants was excellent and the Sunday brunch is incredible . Well worth the price . The staff and concierge could not have been more helpful . They were attendant to every need . I would highly recommend and definitely go back .

The time of our lives!
It was a birthday celebration for my partner. It couldn’t have been more perfect. First the staff is far beyond any other hotel I have been at. So happy and helpful like it’s the best job they have ever had. It’s makes your stay so much more pleasant and enjoyable. The food was out of this world delicious. I would go back once a month if I could ! Thank you all for an immeasurable experience Angela Gibbs

Beware - Food poisoning
I got food poisoning from Bella Vista for lunch which ruined my trip to SB as I couldn’t do anything that we had planned. When I told the hotel about my situation on Sunday morning, they just said sorry and that they had to make a report. That’s it. I couldn’t believe that they didn’t try to make it up to me or anything so on my way out I told the hotel how disappointed I was about my situation and how they could care less that I got food poisoning and then they comped me 1 buffet. You spend $800/900 on a hotel night there, $150 for lunch which gave me food poisoning and I had to tell them to take care of me. What a disappointment. I have never been treated like this at any Four Seasons, let alone any hotel. Never staying here again. Wow. I do have to say though, the front desk guy Payton and the waiter Ricardo were amazing and very personable and made my birthday weekend enjoyable. If it wasn’t for them, I would be a lot more pissed.

Great anniversary trip.
Everything about our visit was fantastic. We were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. We had been there before approximately four years ago. Everything on this trip was even better then we remembered. We are planning to make it our traditional annual anniversary trip.
