The rooms were awesome and clean for a great price in that area. The cove is 10 minutes away along with Prospect St. The staff overcharged my account not once, but twice. The bartender was extremely rude as well for someone who can't make a proper drink. There is a hidden valet charge of $25 and a $22 charge for... More

Thanks to Aaron for a warm welcome and arranging our land transportion to see the seals at La Jolla cove. All the staff greeted us and very good service. The bellman offered us bottled water. The room was clean and spacious and well maintained. Great place to stay

Close by the famed Torrey Pines course, this resort is tucked into lush landscaping dotted with manicured palm trees. Beginning with the fine champagne offered at check-in to the attentive, friendly staff, the visit continues to get better. Accommodating all reasonable requests quickly is the norm. We only had time to visit one of the restaurants where we could dine... More

Years ago this property was a ranch called La Jolla Farms. Today it is a chic "ranch-style" place to go. La Jolla is my home town and I am pleased to see how nicely this property has adapted old SoCal look and feel. Recently my husband and I took my elderly parents to lunch & drinks here. From the doorman... More

As a regular guest at this first class facility I have to say that every stay is better than the one before (not sure how that can be possible)! Most recently I was treated to stellar service from Sean, our bellman, Lisa, our server at the Adobe and Vanessa, our server at Mustang and Burros. The entire staff is extraordinary,... More

We stayed at this property New Years eve and the following two nights. It is a nice property, but finding your room can be frustrating. We had reservations 9 months or more in advance so you would think that far ahead they could have put us somewhere closer to the lobby and restaurants. Although none of this was a big... More

This was our third and likely final stay at the Estancia. Although we still like the grounds and the rooms, we felt as if the quality of the experience has declined (perhaps new ownership?). As we have done before, we stayed three nights over the new years holiday (Dec 30 - Jan 2) and here are some of the issues... More

We are here for a leadership summit and the service is spectacular. Everyone goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. We enjoyed dinner in a private dining room last night. I had a portobello Wellington that was amazing. We are saying in a great suite overlooking the pool! Spring for the extra room- it is totally worth it!

We have stayed at the Estancia several times & we always have a good time & enjoy the ambiance of the property. This time, weekend before Christmas was exceptionally quiet & we took advantage of that because we've been there w/ one or two weddings or a jazz concert on their large main courtyard & it gets very busy, crowded...

This hotel was the location of our christmas reunion with friends. The spa was very nice but busy. However once inside the treatment room it was quiet and enjoyable. The rooms were very nice and we slept well. We will stay again someday.
