We stayed one night before visiting relatives a little further north. The "bell boy" Peter went out of his way to give directions, maps and restaurant suggestions. He was fantastic. Our room was just a regular room, but airy, plenty of space and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the a very large salt water pool and hot tub. The... More

I was not sure what to expect when my husband sent me the details of our confirmation, but this hotel was a dream! We loved our room, the hotel staff is very friendly, the breakfast is delicious, the location is great, and we were walking distance from the beach. Will definitely be going back!

Service is horrible. Restaurants: Empty, yet hostess makes you wait over 20 minutes to sit down. Front desk: Rude, not customer-oriented, checked us in and gave us keys to a room that another guest already checked-in to. Cancelled a reservation we had, and told us WE told them to cancel it - wrong information, and blames the customer. Told us... More

We stayed here twice within six weeks. The first time we had an issue with a dinner. Apologies and compensation were immediate. The second time we had two dinners which were excellent. The food was perfectly cooked, perfectly spiced and served hot. The second time there was a large wedding. One would expect the level of service to drop a... More

I went there for a company meeting and extended the time for vacation. Best decision ever! Peter was exceptionally helpful. He provided my boyfriend and I information on local activities and how to get around. I can't wait to return!

We were there this weekend 09/19 for my friends' wedding and what happened was the worst ever thing from a hotel staff I ever seen. The wedding ended at 10.30pm then we were given a room to carry on the party. Only for security guys Quinton and Miguel to storm in and abuse everybody and stop the party. At one... More

While attending a conference at the Salk Institute I was able to enjoy two nights at this charming Hacienda style spa/hotel. I had a room facing the interior courtyard and could not hear any traffic (or any other) noise. The room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. While I did not get to enjoy the on-site restaurants, I do... More

Our family stayed at the hotel over the Labor Day weekend. We loved the hacienda type property, garden surroundings, nice appointed room and convenience to everything La Jolla.
