Beautiful property with wonderful caring staff. The Manager Cesar Aguilar was extremely professional in handling an unexpected situation. My family visits La Jolla frequently and we always encourage friends and family to stay at the Estancia La Jolla. Great food and drinks at the Mustang & Burros. Always a pleasure.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! It's our local go to that is always a blast. From the staff to the gorgeous grounds (pool/spa) and choice of restaurants, you can not go wrong. They have added a little coffee shop/store that is darling. Another smart addition is a beautiful Mercedes shuttle that will take and pick you up within a 5...

Our stay was one slip up after another. There was a large wedding the first night and a conference the next. It seemed the hotel personnel just couldn't keep up enough to also accommodate the individual guests. When I let them know about problems, they promised to help, but communications inevitably broke down. Really disappointing.

We booked two rooms here for a quick overnight stay in LaJolla and although the property is lovely and the rooms nice, the service wasn't up to par. Our rollaway bed took several hours to be delivered despite four calls to front desk and our room was without shampoo and conditioner. I had brought my own so it was ok....

Estancia is a big compound just across the street from the main entrance of the University of California San Diego, very convenient if you have business at UCSD. It often hosts conventions and meetings, but it also has a spa--which I confess I did not have enough time to take advantage of it. I used the gym (average equipment, small...

Rooms were spacious, nicely appointed and staff really went out of their way to take care of every detail. Their signature eggs Benedict from the restaurant was amazing. Beautiful set up for the conference - we had all our meals there and all were really good. The coffee shop has wonderful espresso drinks and snacks. The property is in a...

We had a wonderful experience at Estancia. We arrived for a few days R&R before a convention in downtown. The grounds and hotel are beautifully maintained. Service was world class and done with a smile. The restaurants and in room dining were excellent. The shuttle service to La Jolla was prompt and Larry was wonderful. The kids enjoyed learning about...

This is a great resort. The quality of the rooms, restaurants, ambiance, and sevice were great. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The location was central to everything downtown LA Jolla, Scripps Park and Nature Reserve, downtown San Diego, and so much more. My husband and I Would definitely stay again.

Isolated location (ie nothing within walking distance - but I guess CA people don't walk except in the gym) and relatively expensive on site restaurants but excellent rooms and staff are very friendly. Very nice pool. Very convenient for UCSD and a short uber ride to downtown La Jolla.

Our family of 7 took 3 rooms and celebrated our father's birthday in La Jolla. We really didn't wish to be in the city of San Diego as much as we wanted to be in a hotel which offered good restaurants, good rooms, etc. Estancia is part of the Meritage Collection, Truly what made our visit so special were the...
