Room wasn’t ready at promised time. Staff very friendly and helpful. Noisy room: could hear hallway and adjoining room and outside noises until late. Request quiet room! Clean. Could use coat of paint in hall and update to dirty, tired elevator. Centrally located; very walkable.

came here on the second leg of our baby moon. We lounged at the pool pretty much all day (at 8 months pregnant there’s not a whole lot else I wanted to do) and had a great time. The “basic” room was a little small and ours had a boring view of another building. We could have splurged I think and got a bigger room but we were still very comfortable. We got room service dessert for dinner to spoil our childless selves and it was excellent. The grounds are immaculate and walking distance to the beach and a wonderful walking path along the water. Lots of people picnicking at sunset along the grassy park by the beach- if we were to return we would probably do that for one night. They had live music during cocktail hour at front which was nice

We had the BEST and SWEETEST waitress! If you go I strongly recommend asking for Mandy. She has taken such great care of us. We will be back thanks to Mandy making it so enjoyable. We also learned her daughter is the hostess and they are just adorable.

The location is unbeatable. The common areas are lovely. However, I repeatedly ask for a quiet room. At 7:30am in the morning construction was a few feet directly below our window. They did change our room which was very noisy. There is one tiny elevator per building which takes forever to come. The room is beyond dated. There were no drawers nor a dresser.

Room tip: not sure there is one

“Wow’d” is the word constantly uttered throughout our amazing adventure spent at this Fabulous And Charming Hotel Resort!

It started with a welcoming coffee break when seated quickly in the cozy La Sala lounge with a Picturesque ocean views of La Jolla Shores..
Our server was not only pleasant, but very accommodating. Our coffee was turned “extra hot” in an instant! ☕️

Brunch was UNDOUBTABLY one of my All Time Favorites!
We were spoiled with our fantastic server, Mandy and her team. Not only was our meal delicious, the service also jump started our fun adventures with their great sense of humor and wonderful service!
We enjoyed the delicate and deeelish lox spread, mouth watering, oh soooo good crab cake sandwich with a zest, both paired perfectly with the cool and refreshing mimosas- generously served on this “National Mimosa Day”!

After our perfect Brunch was a wonderful stroll of this Gorgeous Oasis!
Sipping on our mimosas, while enjoying a beautiful walk through the lush courtyard overlooking amazing ocean views of La Jolla Shores, taking fun pictures in the verandas overlooking both the relaxing pool and lush gardens. then soaking in some sun while sitting in a quaint garden☀️

A day at La Valencia Hotel..
Yes, All I can say is “WOW” and WE CANNOT WAIT TO BOOK OUR STAY at this peace of paradise in La Jolla!
