We recently had 25 rooms booked at Estancia for my son's wedding. It was an absolutely fabulous weekend. I have heard from many of our guests and they used phrases like "magical weekend" to describe their time at Estancia. We had the Rehearsal Dinner, Reception, and Post Wedding Brunch all on the grounds of Estancia. The staff were fantastic, including... More

I recently stayed at Estancia La Jolla for a short work trip. The grounds are perfectly manicured and I especially enjoyed the gardens. Every hotel employee I encountered was friendly and greeted me with a smile. The meals exceeded my expectations (I am very picky) and our 'salsa making' teambuilding reception was unique and fun. The room was very clean... More

We had our annual conference at this hotel and I could not have been more impressed. From our guest rooms to our meetings everything was perfect.

The staff was wonderful all around from everywhere we were! Mike in Banquets did a fabulous job at the Banquet Dinner on Friday evening. He paid attention that I was drinking champagne instead of the wine that was being poured and refilled without asking. The simple things go a long way!! The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained, my room... More

Over the years I've spent many nights at Estancia, with each one being better than the next.

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
