The best vacation I have taken this year!!

I was completely satisfied with my stay at the Santa Barbara beach and gold resort! The staff here went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. Everyone was so genuinely helpful and pleasant. The property was beautiful and the whole aura was peaceful! The food at the restaurants was really good. I can't say enough about this Resort. I will be back and I can't wait!

We were on a cruise and brought a day pass to this resort during our curaçao port...this was by far the best time we had during the whole cruise!! The resort was so clean! The food was delicious! The drinks were top notch! And our server Shereka was so attentive, helpful and nice! Would recommend this resort to anyone!

We can't wait to come back next year!!!!!!!!

This resort is one of the best resorts that i have ever been! We have traveled all over the Caribbean and been to resorts and Santa Barbara is hands down one of the best!! The only hard thing is deciding pool, beach, golf, bar, food so we made it simple - our family went to pool, beach, golf, bar, food and repeat! They had everything so convenient that you can do it all.

Fantastic place to spend a vacation!

I was on a vacation, my wife was on a business trip. I had more fun. I spent a lot of time on the golf course, it was beautiful and challenging with the wind. A great time there alone. The folks at the Golf Shop are friendly, helpful and courteous. They're there to make sure you are set up to have a good time and they do their best. How well you golf that day is up to you... The hotel itself was clean, well laid out and the beds/pillows were quite comfortable. Most of the hotel has a beach view and it is built in a pretty setting.The restaurants (3 on-site, breakfast buffet, quick burger/sandwich near pool and fancy dining) were all very good with excellent support from their staff. Large groups (15+) may struggle in anything but the buffet without advance notice. However, with notice, the service is again, very good.Lllloooonnnnnngggg beach. Very long. Depending on how you like your beach population, for me, it was best visited during the week as during the week because that's when it was less populated. During the weekends, the locals join in and it gets more crowded. However, I was always able to find a place to sit regardless so that was never an issue. (I just don't like all that many people.)There is a bar very near the beach, though separate from the property that I highly recommend you stop by. Just ask, everyone there knows what you mean. :) A bit divey (which I like) right next to the pier so you can see some fun boats go by and while away an hour or three.My wife and I had a private dinner on the beach during sunset, it was simply wonderful. The meal had to follow some very strict guidelines (re: food allergies) and the chef was able to come through with flying colors. That was the best meal we've had outside our home in the last 3 years (the allergies were only recently discovered and has limited our ability to be the foodies we loved to be.) Thank you Melanie for setting it up! Thank you Edwin for hosting such a wonderful evening! Thank you Chef for an awesome meal!Call ahead with concerns, this resort is worth your $$. I'd also recommend the meal plan. It sounds a bit expensive when you're home. You will find that it is worth the spend when you're there.The support and service my received from the business side was also very good! Detailed, on-time, meeting rooms, snacks, etc. the meetings she held were "...excellently supported by the staff and hotel..." in her own words.
