I have stayed at Estancia during a business trip to San Diego. The place is beautiful. The grounds are well kept. The spacious courtyard provides tranquility. I personally, did not get a chance to enjoy the spa, pool and hot tub, but they looked pretty nice – spacious and well built. The fitness center is rather small, who wants to... More

I was here for two nights on business, and would definitely return for pleasure/vacation. The weather wasn't great when I was here, but nonetheless I got the flavor of this lovely resort. Rooms are very large, great comfortable beds/pillows, beautiful bathroom, etc...couldn't ask for more. The pool area is very nice, and lovely gardens. Food at the restaurant is excellent.... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights here. We visited the spa twice (massages and facials). Both experiences were perfect and the spa itself has amazing amenities and the staff is very friendly. Staff overall at the entire hotel is wonderful. Our package included breakfast each morning. The food and service were great, couldn't have asked for more! Couple of... More

I stayed here for a night while attending a conference nearby. Breakfast was very good and my room was very clean and quiet. 25 dollar parking fee is unfortunate and I left my car at the Hilton nearby where I was attending my conference to avoid the charge. The parking fee is really uncalled for. I found it really strange... More

First off, let me say I am not a fan of hotels that require valet parking or tack on charges above the published room price even though they did throw in a bottle of wine as part of the package. That being said, this is a lovely hotel with nice rooms. Our room had a small balcony (I think most... More

Staying weekend before business following week! I knew it was a little outside the centre however hotel , facilities and staff (Jose the barman) were superb, only reason not for 5 stars as it is a little outside everything however it's a great walk or $20 taxi, I will stay again if opportunity arises!

If you are looking for a family hotel that has a nice environment for adult but at the same time works for kids this is the place! Only negative thing that they do not allow kids in the hot tub, and the restaurant could have a wider menus option. But otherwise great hotel!
