    Phenomenal!!

    Our whole experience with the staff here at the Ritz-Carlton, Bacara has been nothing but amazing! They helped us plan our wedding in less than two weeks for 13 of our closest family members. They helped us get rooms for everyone, a ceremony location, meals before and after the wedding, an amazing reception dinner, and pool time for everyone. It was difficult as this was our 4th attempt at planning a wedding during COVID, but they made it effortless, beautiful, and memorable! Thank you so much Angela, Dylan, and Steven! You made our wedding weekend perfect and we will definitely be back!

    Fabulous venue for our engagement dinner and wedding day. Five star accommodation in Santa Barbara cannot be beat, this place is luxurious and offers everything that it boasts about. Great restaurants on site and their spa is excellent.

    We stayed at the Bacara Resort for our wedding! Three nights of the most beautiful grounds and the friendliest staff. They took extra good care of us and I would highly recommend this resort!
