We stayed at the Estancia La Jolla for two nights in July as the hotel we had booked in San Diego wasn't available all five nights. After our two night stay, we wished we had booked the entire trip here. The location is convenient to Torrey Pines State Park and La Jolla Village and a short drive into San Diego....

I stayed here with my husband for one night, on a business trip. The property is very pretty and the valet parking staff is very attentive. The charge for the valet is $25 per the stay, I am not sure if this is daily or during your entire stay at the hotel. We were greeted by a friendly staff who...

We stayed at The Estancia for three nights, and truly loved the beautiful hotel. I was impressed with all the succulents and the Spanish / Old California feel. After a nice dinner we enjoyed sitting and reading our book in one of several courtyards with a relaxing fountain nearby. The hotel isn't located in a shopping area that you can...

We recently stayed at The Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa. It truly was a six-star experience!! It is a beautiful resort, the service was excellent, the grounds gorgeous, the rooms, dining experiences, spa, fireplaces, valet, concierge, etc. were all top-notch!! Everything was impressive! and exceeded my expectations (and believe me, I am picky). I couldn't have picked a greater...

We love this hotel. Personnel were very kinf from the cleanning staff to the managers. I will say the only cons is the valet parking which is a little bit of a pain but the guys where very nice. For those looking for a beach hotel this is not walking distance to the beach but other that that I will...

Lovely Old California look and feel. The hotel is large enough to be comfortable, but broken up into charming garden areas, outdoor fireplace patios, spa, pool and restaurants that give it a real private club feel. Its a resort to make "your place " and come back to often. I booked a spa treatment and stayed to relax in the...

We booked a package deal here and the agent was very helpful. Explained all fees, and even ended up waiving a few once we checked out. We were a little cautious before getting there because we had read other reviews here detailing renovations. To our relief, these had wrapped up and everything looked to be in great shape. The grounds...

This was my first experience and visit with the Estancia Hotel. To say I was impressed is an understatement!! From the valet team, to the grounds, front desk etc...everything was fabulous!

This wasn't our first stay in La Jolla (we love La Jolla!), but it was our first stay at the Estancia. We had seen the entrance before when driving down Torrey Pines Rd. so we decided to try it when our dog was having surgery at a nearby veterinary hospital.

Estancia La Jolla was very average. Even with repeated requests, staff is unable or incapable of enforcing the "no children under 14" rule posted very clearly at the Jacuzzi. Families with toddlers and young children filled the Jacuzzi, as if it was a kiddie pool for kiddie diving and swimming. This happened every day, and was not a one-time issue....
