My husband, 22 yr. old daughter and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights last week in a King jr. suite.
I had researched all sorts of hotels and condos for our first visit to La Jolla and I am so glad I chose La Valencia. It is hands down the best location and has the best views in town. The pool area is great and it was so nice to enjoy it, have the bar/food service there and have the views at the same time. I checked out the other hotel just down the street and the pool area and views there do not compete.
The staff members we came across could not have been nicer. The guys at the pool cabana were exceptional.
I do wish that there were rooms at the property that would accommodate three adults with ocean views. (we had a town view). Also would have liked a private toilet area in the bathroom and a magnifying/makeup mirror.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely will return.
