Very friendly service, great relaxing atmosphere and great scenery. <br> We did the spa pass and a massage, then went down to the bistro for lunch. Walked along the beach path then sun bathed and finished off with another swim. <br> I would definitely do it again
Pool great! Water temperature very good<br> Everything so clean<br> Food very good<br> Service excellent
The Bacara has an amazing pool area that unfortunately spa guests do not get to enjoy. The spa guests have the option of a steam room, sauna or indoor whirlpool. There is also an outdoor lounge area with a pool that it surrounded by tall buildings- no view in sight. Hard to justify this expensive day pass.
Great day spa in a beautiful location. Loved the steam room and outdoor pool.
We loved it and will be back. The pool water was clear and perfect temperature We ate at the restaurant overlooking the ocean and the service was excellent! It was perfect weather and glamorous environment!
The day at The Bacara was perfect. Relaxation, renewal of spirit and peace of mind is what I left with.
We rented a cabana for my girlfriend's birthday. We went on a Wednesday and it could not have been better. The pool and grounds were well kept and not too crowded. We were upgraded to a pool level cabana and the service was great. Food and drinks were expensive but tasty. We'll definitely be back.
We had an excellent time at Bacara -- the service was excellent and hotel and view is wonderful.
We enjoyed our day pass at the Bacara Hotel and spa. The weather was perfect, the pools were warm, inviting, and sparkling clean, the food was delicious and the service was impeccable!
Bacara is a beautiful property, the pools are great, very large and kid friendly. We spent the day there after a few nights of camping and it was just what we needed; a little luxury, tasty food and yummy cocktails.
I purchased a spa pass for a little birthday R&R. Check-in was easy at the concierge desk. Since I was looking for a peaceful environment, the concierge recommended that I take advantage of the spa pool instead of the adult pool, since the spa pool is adults-only. I'm glad I did! It was beautiful and tranquil. When I checked in at the spa to get my pass, I was offered a complimentary glass of bubbly for my birthday. Off to a good start! I spent the morning by the pool, ordered lunch, and then hit the spa. I think the poolside menu is a streamlined version of what they offer at the spa cafe, but I was happy with the options. The steam room was great, and the iced cucumber towels were a nice touch. Being able to shower and dry my hair afterward was very convenient. All in all, it was a very relaxing day and I'm already looking for an excuse to return!
We had a great time celebrating my daughter's birthday at the lower cabana. Excellent service and great food!
The day was fantastic at the spa, I order food at the pool the hamburger was delicious
Beautiful weekend at the front beach 5 stars hotel resort. Excellent service at the pool area, staff was very friendly, we had a great time. Also plenty of towels and nice spa area. Recommended.
Our daycation at Bacara was mostly positive. The pool staff kept changing and there was much confusion with orders. We only received one small delivery of frozen grapes, no other "complimentary fruit" was provided. The pool was nice though would have been better if there was a separate adults pool vs kids/family pool. We also thought there would be more amenities in the pool bathrooms. Overall it was a fun day being withe the girls but we probably won't go back to this specific property.
This is a lovely hotel property, however I did feel the pool area needs updating. For this level of hotel, the lounge chairs are quite shabby looking which was just less appealing. Also our time was unfortunately ruined by someone pooping in the pool with the consequence of it having to close. This was not the hotel's fault of course, but it was an expensive day for it to end this way.
Friends from out of town stayed at Bacara on my recommendation. By purchasing the pass I was able to spend the day with them. Booked pass on same day as used. Resort Pass customer service was great.
First, I want to say my family had a really nice time at Bacara. The weather was perfect and the staff were very attentive. We also had fun playing ping pong. Second, there are a few details that surprised me about such a sought-after Resort. The pool temperature was low. I heard other guests commenting about it as well. The poolside loungers and tables were dirty. And unfortunately, my salad had plastic pieces in it. Aside from the above issues, we enjoyed our resort pass, but are hesitant to visit again.
The cabana was fantastic, super private and a beautiful view. The food was great and the drinks were refreshing. The 4-5 different servers were very friendly and accommodating.
Amazing resort and spa! A must in Santa Barbara.
The frozen grapes by the pool were amazing!!!
The pool was amazing overlooking the beach. It was the perfect day had a great lunch and drinks with my girlfriends. It was the perfect way to spend my birthday.
I spent a lovely day in Santa Barbara enjoying Bacara Resort. All the delivered amenities according to the services were provided. The Spa is very nice and offers your basic retreat experience. I spent many hours at the pool and enjoyed the grand views along with poolside relaxation. The spa pass allows for full access to the property and treated like a welcomed guest.
Pool was sparkling blue and very clean. The shrimp appetizer was delicious and very large.. definitely could have split it ! Drinks were yummy and refreshing. Server was very friendly and attentive! Loved it all!
Our day pass was great. We were celebrating a birthday for my 11 year old nephew. We had a cabana but honestly didn't feel we needed it, as the kids preferred the other pool next door. The staff at the Cabana pool seem to think they are in need to being extremely vigilant, to a point of making the guest feel uncomfortable. Our pool server was amazing. On point and always smiling.
Enjoy a day by the sea as a guest of the Bacara Resort in SB. You will be treated with a day of relaxation and full guest care. The main pool offers a nice setting and quiet time and relaxation can be had at the main spa facility. Parking was provided. Wifi did not work in the spa, but surrounding areas. Bring hair tools if you plan on ding your hair for the evening.
So so experience mainly because we went on a Monday at the end of August and I expected it to be not crowded. It was full of kids and families. This hindered my experience because I just wanted to relax. Nonetheless we stayed for several hours and ordered a burger which was very good for the money ($20). The bar ended up charging my card for more money than expected but said they would take care of it. Overall staff is nice, grounds are nice, view is beautiful once the sun came out. Pool was NOT heated or even luke warm. It was pretty cold. Not sure if we'll be going back but just wanted to experience it.
My day started by using the fitness room, then on to the spa area, out to the pool, back into the spa and lounge. Such a great relaxing day using all the amenities. Bacara is so beautiful and clean.
It was excellent! World class service!
Everything was perfect and so-worth the money! Employees were nice and helpful and the pools were beautiful (I had the Spa Pool all to myself in the morning). I tried the Eucalyptus and Dry Sauna ... they really make your skin glow! I didn't patronize any of the restaurants as this was a 'health day' - i.e., no alcohol, carbs, etc. There was however a little cafe on the property where I purchased yogurt and cheese sticks... perfect for me, but they also offered pizza, etc. In addition, the Resort provides complimentary apples -- these can be found in baskets throughout the property. Almonds and shredded coconut are available in the Serenity Room, as well as herbal teas and basil/cucumber infused ice water (available through the spa). I didn't get a massage so I can't comment on that, but I hear they're good. My favorite part of the day were the pools. I wish I new about resort-pass a long time ago.
Bacara resort was absolutely exceptional! 5 star experience, excellent service and incredibly gorgeous resort.
Excellent service! We had all we needed, the cabana attendant was checking on us every half an hour, we spent a splendid day! Location and facilities were on 10+. Will certainly come back. Thank you to your website that helped to accommodate us.
We had a friend staying with us in Santa Barbara and wanted to treat them to a fun spa and pool day. The Bacara has a nice large pool and great service. We sipped on cocktails and swam all day. We will be back.
Had an enjoyable afternoon at the pool. Enjoyed cocktails and lunch while soaking up the sun. The setting is amazing while you relax looking up to the vineyards. Service was great too! Can't wait to return on our return visit!
The Bacara has two pools and a jacuzzi available for resort pass guests. The facilities and staff are nice. Towels, sunblock and ice water are provided. There is a view of the ocean from the pool deck. There's a bathroom with showers where you can change before heading to the pool. I loved that I could order food and drinks while next to the pool. The smoothies and drinks were excellent, the food was kind of spotty as far as quality (especially given the price). It's a pretty long walk from the lobby to the pool, but the hotel grounds are nice. It's all valet parking, and parking is free (just bring some cash for a tip). I will probably end up going once or twice a year since the cost is pretty high, but it was a really enjoyable way to spend the day. Note: I went on a weekday and the weekends will be much busier.
Great day, wonderful service! We will be back.
Great day pass! Highly recommend!
Service was amazing. Very thoughtful. The pool, gym and spa were clean and lovely to use. Breakfast was delicious, especially looking out to the ocean. In the afternoon we had a cocktail at the bar and saw Dolphins. Perfection. The only thing was I wasn't too keen on the bar food. The quality good have been better. Overall a wonderful day, that made me feel refreshed and fortunate. Going back very soon
Purchased the Spa Pass for the Bacara. Had a great relaxing day. The staff was attentive and we never experienced lack of service for not being guests. Great day and would do it again.
Lovely day! Service excellent! Love the pools at Barcara Resort and Spa! Can't wait to go back
Great pool and service. Loud music ? which doesn't allow for quiet reading time in the sun. Bathrooms/showers only had hand soap. Plenty of towels and cold ice water provided.
We loved the Bacara. The lower cabana was perfect! The staff at the hotel especially Edgar made the day so special. The food and drink service was so fast and delicious!!
The Bacara was a perfect place to celebrate my daughters graduation. The staff was very attentive and the food was great.
The pool was great! It was a very relaxing experience. Food was AMAZING, drinks were good as well.
Had a wonderful 4 to 5 hours at Bacara. The grounds and all of the facilities are top-notch. We used all three pools, and there was never a sense that the place was overcrowded. Very professional staff and food was reasonably priced for a 5 star resort. Would definitely recommend, and will do again
Pool and spa were very nice. everyone was attentive. great day!
Such a great deal! Enjoyed every part of our spa pass and day at the Bacara! Would definitely look into getting a resort pass at other destinations and would always go back to Bacara! Used all the amenities of the resort. Food was great, service was great!
Bacara's service was exemplary. We enjoyed the good food, amazing zone, 3 choices of pools - right by the beach, and all the amenities of the spa. We were treated like any other hotel guest, as opposed to an outsider, which made our experience even better. It would be great if there was more food/drink service in the adult pool, which can be easily fixed. Other than that, I would definitely come back to this resort and use Resortpass again. Thanks!
It was a perfect day. The Marriott Marquis was super nice and staff was friendly.
This is a great service. I enjoyed myself. There were more children and noise than relaxing. I didn't do the spa and would consider next time to avoid the rowdiness.
Everything was perfect service was great. Except for the weather was little cold and the Pool temp was little cold.
Everything was great, except the drinks had virtually no alcohol in them. I'm normally one to like very little alcohol as I'm a light weight. Had 5 drinks in the course of 2 hours and didn't feel any tipsiness. (I'm 5'6 and weigh 115 lbs lol so I'm small.) I'd like to make this a regular day thing with my girlfriends but the drink thing was a huuuge downfall. Please improve! Would love to come back if changed! Otherwise, the staff, pool (gorgeous as always), and ambiance was wonderful.
Gorgeous resort. The cabana was perfect and the service was great.
The Bacara hotel is beautiful. My wife enjoyed the spa. The spa is big, clean and very relaxing. The staff in the spa are so friendly and helpful. Poolside food is delicious because it taste fresh and clean. The ambiance of the resort is so calming. We will definitely come back.
Staff was super nice. I spent most of the day at the Spa and adult pool.?? This was a special treat to myself... I will definitely book more staycations in the future ❤️ Great time
We could not have had a better time! The staff was courteous and friendly, they went above and beyond to accommodate us, and all of our needs were anticipated. We can't wait to book with resort pass again!!
The day at the pool was amazing! I got an upper cabana, and it was really great for a place to get some shade and order some food! The pool staff seemed a little confused about the day passes, but the person in charge of cabanas (pretty sure he was the pool manager) straightened everything out!
Pool and jacuzzi nice. ordered burgers at restaurant. Used the spa (steam room, work out equipment). Loved the pool.
There's nothing like the Bacara Spa. Its peaceful and because of new management, well maintained. It used to be dirty with staff that clearly hated being there but its turned around for the better. Food is always great and with a wine tasting room to boot, its a fantastic get away for a day.
The pool had an awesome view, the food was delicious and great service. My daughters loved it, can't wait to try another resort.
I got the spa pass and was able to enjoy the spa amenities. The spa pool was cold and it was nice that I was able to go to the other pools that were much warmer. We ordered food and drinks. I loved that I was able to relax and didn't get questioned if I was a day pass holder or guest. I was treated equally.
Very good and very happy with this possibility. Had a fantastic day
I hosted my friends from out of town at the Bacara by renting a cabana for the day; the service was excellent. I got there before everyone else; checked us all in and the staff made sure we were stocked with waters / fresh fruit / fresh towels. I will definitely be back for my birthday!
The resort, spa and beach were very nice.<br> The personnel were helpful and courteous.<br> The spa had great facilities and professional staff.
As a local of Santa Barbara, the Bacara is always an iconic hotel that was yet to be experienced. It was lovely to access all of the wonderful perks of the pass and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Bacara and will be back!
