What a great find.. beautiful grounds,lots of different plants etc. The two restaurants were both very tasty and the prices were within reason..The Mustang for dinner has some nice craft brews on draft which was a plus. Complimentary coffe in the breakfast / lunch restaurant. Great relaxing pool area , staff was super friendly. Will certainly coming back soon..

Stayed for a work week - thoroughly enjoyed the gardens & the restaurant overlooking the estate. Beautifully manicured and a pleasure to roam throughout. The staff is very helpful and pleasant to interact with.

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

We stayed at this lovely resort Thanksgiving weekend and we loved it. It is owned by the same group that owns the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara and we can see the similarities. The service was excellent. The Sunday brunch was delicious and it is very close to Torrey Pines. We enjoyed a great walk on the beach and we... More

Stayed two nights and it does have the getaway feel and yet is very convenient to UCSD, which I was visiting. However, in comparing resorts, the individuals rooms should be more resort like (it has the feel of a business hotel room) - look, eg, at the Four Seasons North Troon. I would like to highly commend the staff, however.... More

Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa is a lovely place. The gardens are beautiful and the hotel is nice and relaxing. I do not give this location a 5-rating due to the number of hairs stuck in the bathroom ceiling--it was disgusting! We figured it had to be from people who use the blow dryer and with the bathroom's humidity... More

My wife and I took a few days break and visited San Diego. A family member suggested the Estancia in La Jolla. It was a pleasant stay in a comfortable room. The staff were exceptional and the location was convenient to nearby San Diego sites and restaurants. We will stay there again the next time we are in San Diego.

After a day at Del Mar Racetrack, it's nice to settle in to a quiet, calming hotel. This was our third stay here and we've never been disappointed.
