Absolutely Amazing
My boyfriend surprised me with spa finder gift cards for my birthday along with spa services at this beautiful spa. The massage was superb and the facilities are amazing! I can happily say that I will not wait another year to utilize such a property -- I will definitely be back soon!

Bacara Resort and Spa
I was glad that Bacara Resort accepted Spa Finder Gift cards, otherwise the rate of the spa is just too high if you don't get it with promotions. Overall relaxing experience in the spa as they have variety of options/messages & is a beautiful atmosphere and Resort overall with nice swimming pool areas that you just want to hang out all day. While the fitness center & yoga, & message itself was very good, Unfortunately I found the service a bit off and slow. Staff couldn't generate a credit card receipt (had to ask 2-3 times till check-out day!) Cafe next to Spa was closed during our stay and pool area cafe so backed up that they never got things done on time, even though pointed to them that I had to go to my message session they didn't bring the food on time. I asked my husband to eat mine, and while I came back from spa 2-3 hours later (with eating an apple just in the spa to survive) they again took more than one hour to prepare a sandwich/salad to bring it to me!!! And this was not in high season. The towels were just too thick for usage in fitness (could be good at around pool area or inside spa, but they should use other lighter type of towels for work out when you want to hang it from your neck or from fitness equipments)
