Looking for the best resorts in Santa Barbara? With plenty of options all around, the Mar Monte Hotel in Santa Barbara stands out for its peaceful atmosphere and convenient location across from the beach. We enjoyed a quiet getaway in October to the Hyatt Santa Barbara Mar Monte Hotel on the east end of Santa Barbara. We had an amazing ocean view room with a balcony that had breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. We highly recommend the Mar Monte Hotel if you are looking for clean rooms, a peaceful atmosphere by the beach, , for reasonable price. We wanted to give you a quick review of our visit at one of our new favorite cool places to stay in Santa Barbara.
We were booked in a King Bed Balcony Ocean View Room which featured a King size bed, and sparkling views of the Pacific from the balcony. We had easy access to the street and crosswalk to the ocean. The bathroom was large, which included closet space which gave it a unique touch. This feature gave more space to the room itself.
Our puppy Honey Bear got to come along with us on this trip, and they were accommodating to her during our stay. There was plenty of grass outside for her to play. Although dog friendly, cleanliness was not compromised.
Cafe Lido which is located on site of the Mar Monte Hotel was where we ate all our meals during our trip. I am Gluten Free, and they were able to accommodate me with a few options to eat off of their menu. I enjoyed the Little Gem Lettuce salad and the Charred Shishito Peppers. Caleb loves burgers so he ordered the Cali Prime Burger which was juicy and very flavorful. A great side to add along with the burger is the Crispy Yukon Gold Potatoes . Cafe Lido is right next to the pool which allows you to order from your chair or find a place at one of their outdoor tables. We did both and enjoyed them equally.

We spent a majority of the time during our stay by their beautiful pool and lounge area (which is right outside of Cafe Lido). They have plenty of options to lounge around and enjoy their pool, which is across the street from the beach. We would lay out by the pool, walk to the ocean, and then come back and enjoy a fresh cold drink by the pool. This was the perfect way to relax and take in the peaceful breeze at the beautiful Mar Monte Hotel.
