My friends and I were in town for a conference, and we decided to book a group spa. The hotel grounds were spectacular -- manicured lawns and gardens with an intimate feel. The spa facility exceeded my expectation. The service was the best part. Karlee, the manager, took great care of us. Since I was in charge of organizing the... More

great place to stay for a wedding. The grounds are perfect for photographs. I had many requests, some that were difficult to fulfill but Kim, the front desk receptionist, graciously fulfilled every need I requested, and always with a smile. She really took the extra time to make my stay along with all our guests a great time. All the... More

To start things off, the grounds of this property are truly what bring people in. Beautiful landscaping and lush flora, Mission-style architecture—the grounds really make you feel like you are on vacation somewhere far off. The fragrance used in the hallways of the rooms smells amazing. The scents of the soaps, shampoo, conditioner, body wash—all were delightful and refreshing. Concerning... More

This is one of the most beautiful hotels in San Diego but what makes it great is the warm welcome you get at the front desk with Kim and Katelyn. We were excited to arrive but Kim and Katelyn made us feel like royalty; the most professional warm greeting we have experienced at any 5 star resort anywhere in the... More

This place is located across from UCSD. It is perched on the cliffs above La Jolla. You can't see the beach and it is about a 20 minute walk to the cliffs then down a large staircase to beach access. The place is beautiful. Nice gardens tucked back from the main street so it is quiet. Rooms are comfy and... More

La Estancia in La Jolla, CA is a beautiful place with excellent services and staff. The food in the restaurants is delicious and there is attention to detail in all aspects of the resort. If you want a place to relax and renew yourself, this is it! Downtown La Jolla is about 5 miles away (about $20.00 taxi) and is... More

I stayed for two nights for business and did not want to leave. The grounds were beautiful (in January!), with meticulous landscaping, great pool, cabanas, etc. I ran nearby in an amazing neighborhood close to the water. The hotel seemed close to a lot of things. I did not have time for breakfast there but the menu looked amazing. We... More

Kimberly helped my colleague and me print out a bunch of documents we needed for a meeting. Thanks! Caitlyn was also very smile-y and happy. A bell hop whose name I don't remember also was very helpful taking a box from my room and moving it into my car.

We stayed here with our children for a long holiday weekend at the tail end of a my husband's business meeting which was being held at Estancia. I absolutely loved this hotel!
