My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Estancia. It is a beautiful property and the service and quality of food was great. We were there for a getaway/work and found everything to be excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean and comfortable. I honestly don't have anything negative to say about the resort. I would return in... More

So - upfront, just let me acknowledge that much of the fault with the stay was mine for picking Estancia in the first place. I had to be in La Jolla for a long weekend and was given a list of options. (I didn't do my usual Trip Advisor due diligence and just picked it based on website pictures.) What... More

Perfect location and beautiful architecture are all that remain of a once very special property. Rooms remain shabby despite a recent "remodel" with stained carpeting and tired wood tables that were terribly scratched and well past their prime. Can't forget the lampshade that had a large burn mark on it. Pool area is merely okay with poolside food and bar... More

Our son spent the last four years attending UCSD. During those years we made many trips to La Jolla, and enjoyed many visits to the Estancia Hotel. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is professional and welcoming, and the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Our son attended ERC, so we were always within easy walking distance to the ERC...

This hotel was delightfully close to the graduation ceremonies for UCSD (we walked!) Our room was on the small side and totally enclosed (no patio). We were in the last building close to the pool and spa. Sadly, the walk to our room entailed walking through long corridors of indoors rooms through two buildings. There was a beautiful courtyard area... More

We stayed here in June when we attended my nieces' graduation from UCSD. It was perfectly located across from the campus, and a beautiful retreat from the hustle and bustle. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the rooms very nice, and staff very helpful. We didn't even spend enough time there, as we had family get-togethers to attend. But we did... More

The first time I stayed here I thought this place was spectacular, but my second visit has left a bad taste in my mouth. From the moment I walked in, there were issues. When I first arrived, a guy was arguing with the concierge about his room. It was very late and two other staff members came to the front... More

I love this place. It's like a compound on the hills of La Jolla. There's no ocean view, but the grounds are fantastic. I can't imagine what their landscaping bill is like every month. It's worth a visit to just walk through the property. I've taken staycations here just to get away from it all. They also have a nice... More

I have to admit, I was not big on the idea of staying in a Hotel that was not within walking distance of anything but UCSD. Having said that, The Estancia was above my expectations.

I live here in Sd and love doing staycations to getaway. This is one of my favs in San Diego. Close to great shopping in La Jolla cove and UTC mall. Amazing restaurants and beaches are also nearby. Highly recommend!
