You’d be hard-pressed to find a better setting for a Valentine’s Day getaway than America’s Riviera. Join us with that special somebody of yours here at Mar Monte Hotel, and swoon over one another and the gorgeous mountains-to-surf backdrop while basking in friendly February sunshine!

Mar Monte Hotel: Ideal Valentine’s Day Accommodations Along the American Riviera

Our boutique hotel, part of Hyatt’s Unbound Collection, puts you and your main squeeze mere steps from the Pacific sands of East Beach, and treats both of you to views stretching from the rugged peaks of the Santa Ynez Mountains out to that glorious, glinting ocean forming our “front yard.”

Our location along Cabrillo Boulevard is only part of our appeal as a Valentine’s Day escape. You’ll love the stylish California aesthetic that infuses our property, setting the kind of breezy, carefree mood the two of you need to focus mostly on each other.

Many of our rooms and suites have their own private balconies, serving up dreamy views. Steps from those lovebirds-ready accommodations, you’ll find readymade date-night dining at our costa Kitchen & Bar, the glorious menu of which draws heavy influence from coastal Italian cookery while adding splashes of Middle Eastern and Eastern Mediterranean color. An expansive wine list and full suite of specialty cocktails help you toast the spirit of amour over a beautiful—and utterly delicious—spread.

Other romantic wining and dining awaits you at Café Lido, set near the Mar Monte Hotel pool deck and open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Live music here on Saturday afternoons only enhances the ambience.

From the tasting events of our Lobby Terrace to the Divintree Yoga classes on offer on the beach across the street, you’ll have no end of things to do during your Valentine’s stay with us—though, naturally, we don’t blame you if you mostly just want to kick back in your private American Riviera sanctuary.

Out & About for Valentine’s Day in Santa Barbara

For day-tripping together, hop on Mar Monte Bikes and pedal your way to Leadbetter Beach, which serves up some of the Santa Barbara oceanfront’s finest sunsets. And take it from us: Winter sunsets on the Central Coast have a singular beauty.

Enjoy wine tastings in Santa Barbara or an unhurried drive among the lovely Santa Ynez Valley vineyards. Take advantage of a mild, sunshiny February day for a hike in the mountains. Head over to nearby Channel Islands National Park to look for the gray whales that spout and roll along our coastline this time of year, and stroll amid the archipelago’s blooming yellow coreopsis and other early spring wildflowers.
