This place was amazing! I only wish I wasn't there on business. The room was great and the robes where amazing. Had my own patio to enjoy. The atmosphere was amazing! The candles they light at night smelt amazing! Staff was there when you needed them. Would love to go back for vacation. I highly recommend.

The room, the gardens and the rest of the hotel is beautiful. The property is different, not your typical hotel, with picturesque courtyards. If you cannot walk far, I would mention that when booking the room. My room was quite a walk from the lobby (though i did not mind the walk). The saltwater pool is very nice, and the... More

The Hotel Estancia is a beautiful hotel in a great location. We had our ladies' weekend here and it was simply magical. From valet parking to the restaurants, the staff is friendly and helpful. Everything about our suite was prefect, from the wine and cheese table to the hallway tea and coffee bar. We all had spa treatments and I... More

The Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa has a beautiful property and rooms. Very serine. The breakfast buffet was delicious and terrific service. Shocking for a four star that the staff was rather aloof and unhelpful on both days/evenings.

This nicely styled hotel is in "no-mans land" - not in La Jolla but on the edge near the University, some distance from the beach, and not near anything of note. The facilities themselves are nice - rooms good, bathrooms good, restaurant good, gym good, pool good, but you feel completely "gouged" by the charges - $25 per day for... More

I popped into this hotel en route from LA, after a very poor experience, and it was utterly incredible. Stunning in every regard, food, service was superb from all the team, the Spa is the best Ive ever visited, and very reasonable actually too - you simply must visit if in San Diego. Utterly perfect.

We stayed for two nights at Estancia and we very much enjoyed our stay. From the front desk team to the bellmen, everyone was most welcoming and accommodating. Comp services include a welcome glass of sparkling wine, a bottle of wine in-room, Voss water in-room, WIFI, etc. Our room was clean, bright, comfortable and well appointed. We could suggest installing... More
