I and my ex-partner are in our 30s and 20s, and we stayed here for what was meant to be a relaxing week. For the price its a poor hotel, take the price out of it and it's between average and good. The rooms are basic and small, and are incredibly thin walled. At one time we had a couple... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here Saturday night to have a little "staycation" and join up with a friend who was celebrating a family event there. The whole experience was underwhelming and went from bad to worse. Let me tell you the gory end before I begin with the string of disappointments. I GOT A HORRIBLE PAINFUL RASH ON MY... More

Dear Leigh H.- Thank you again for taking the time to speak with me yesterday. Again we apologize for your experience over the weekend and we understand your frustration.

This was my second stay at the Estancia La Jolla. The grounds are stunning and the staff very friendly and accommodating. My room was clean and comfortable. The food at the restaurants is excellent and the outdoor lounge at the Mustangs and Burros, (odd name,) is relaxing and fun. I find the valet parking a little annoying. Unfortunately, my car... More

Georgeous grounds, a wonderful room, staff was superb. I did find myself annoyed at the mandatory valet service. I would have preferred an option to park and access to my vehicle. I was also irked at numerous "extra" charges which appeared on the bill....various niggling fees for what should have been included. All in all, a great place.

Dear Ron F- Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Although we are pleased you found our hotel an overall great place, we are sorry you were disheartened with the valet parking offering and taxes surrounding your stay. Both are industry-wide practices and we remain competitive in regards to this. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you, Estancia... More

I have stayed at Estancia la Jolla Hotel and Spa several times while visiting UCSD - right across the road. It is set on beautiful grounds and features a very nice restaurant. The spa facilities are wonderful - a long-ish swimming pool with salt water and a relaxing jacuzzi, all surrounded by lush vegetation and humming with bird song. My... More

It is certainly not our intention to leave our guests feeling this way.

My husband and I stayed at Estancia in March for 3 nights. We cannot say enough good things about this hotel. First, the staff is the best we have ever encountered at any hotel. They were there for us. The valets and bell staff made us feel like part of the the Estancia family. The grounds are gorgeous and the... More

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa is a very well located hotel for anyone visiting the greater San Diego area. We flew into LAX and drove to La Jolla. The fact that it's just north of the city made it very practical. The rooms (we took two) are very beautiful, comfortable and clean. The showers had perfect pressure and a... More

Thank you for spoiling me Estancia team! I felt welcomed, relaxed and taken care of from the moment I arrived to the moment I left.

This is a beautiful property. The grounds are nice to walk around, and it is a secluded, quiet resort. We came for a romantic weekend, and it was just what we needed. The couples bungalow at the spa was a great experience. There are several areas around the resort to sit outside and some areas with fireplaces for when it... More
