"Bacara"
A great resort in an awesome location. There are so many positive things to say about this property but for this review I will focus on a couple of easy fixes management should do. 1) pillows are not all comfortable and 2) both the coffee in the room and at the store is terrible. Not sure if it's the grind, the water or some combination and my coffee standards are pretty reasonable but one of the worst coffee experiences ever and makes no sense for such a nice resort

"Very enjoyable!"
All the staff members couldn't have been more helpful. The service in the restaurant was excellent but the quality of the lunch and dinner menu was only fair. We have enjoyed Sunday brunch previously and it was very good.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend away and had a very pleasant stay. We walked a lot - to the wharf, to the marina, downtown. We visited Solvang too, the drive is very pretty.

"Close to the bay. Easy access from Hwy 101.."
Arrived late and got an "ocean view" room which meant right above the Main Street. It was noisy but the view was great. The room was nice; the bed was really comfortable. The buildings and grounds were well maintained and very attractive. Seems like a great location; we were only there overnight.

"Well located and well run hotel"
There is a wine and cheese gathering included in the price each night. We met several couples who have enjoyed month long stays each winter here for over ten years. That speaks volumes about this hotel. We were very pleased with our stay.
