Editorial review:

Bacara Resort Spa is beautiful and romantic, with a Spanish style to it. The facilities are amazing, the rooms are amazingly relaxing, and there are restaurants featuring Basque, Mediterranean, and healthy food. There's entertainment for kids, an amazing spa, beautiful infinity pools with great views of the ocean, and a movie theater. The service varies greatly though, from snobbish to wonderful.

                                  I liked everything about Bacara. I had a phenomenal time. I only stayed there for one night, but it was awesome. I will be back!!!!!

                                  There wasn't one damn thing I didn't like about Bacara.

                                  I love it's remoteness and its beauty the layout of the property is gorgeous what I liked best is how dog friendly it was

                                  The food wasn't great and the food and beverage service was below par for the type of place it is
