“I will never, ever, ever, ever, stay in s different hotel in san diego!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

As we entered the resort, the scenery took our breath away. The private beach is such a plus. The 1 bedroom room was exceptionally large. The service was pampering. I've stayed st the hotel del Coronado at an oceanfront room for twice the amount, and even if the pricing was comparable between these two hotels, I'd still choose the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. The pitch n putt golf course, the tennis courts, ping-pong tables, kayaking, snorkeling, and private dinners on the beach.........this hotel is amazing!!

This hotel has one of the most unique locations in Southern California. It is on the sand at the La Jolla cove. It truly is the ultimate family vacation spot; it is children friendly for sure. Beach, tennis, pitch-n-putt course, putting green, playground, croquet, ping pong ... plus ... you are minutes from the village of La Jolla with its fabulous shopping and restaurants. If you want to relax and have fun … you can’t beat LJB&TC.

Room Tip: The less expensive rooms are away from the water. If you can afford it, the beach front rooms are t...

Came here for a family get-away, great service and wonderful location. Food prices were high so we just cooked in the room but loved the stay. Fire-pit on beach and beach barbecues are superb amenities. Will definitely stay here again.

The location, restaurant, beach and staff are all A+ These people do an excellent good job at making their guests happy. However, for two nights in a row, various members have had beach parties, which resembled a grammar school at recess. Candidly I was amazed that the staff was unable to do anything about the behavior these parents allowed their children to get away with.

There were perhaps 10 families, each with several children ages 5 thru 12 and these kids literally drove the paying guests off the beach. Personally I was struck twice by smurf balls and while these are soft as a marshmellow, it's difficult to read a book when you're ducking smurf balls.

I would never recommend this place to a friend, now will my wife and I ever stay here again.

Think twice (unless you too have children who like to run wild) about staying here. By the way, kids will be kids and I do not fault them. This is a parental issue and a management issue for allowing it.

A poor choice of a place to stay

Room Tip: We stayed on the beach, which is why it was pandemonium for two nights in a row. We're checking...

We chose this hotel due to its reputation and location on the beach in La Jolla. Even though the temperature was a bit cool for much beach time, the exceptional location makes this a preferred choice for a special occasion or a get-away. The staff at check-in and in each of the restaurants was always attentive, with a genuine smile and the feeling that they were really pleased you were there. The housekeeping and landscape/grounds teams were equally friendly and outgoing.

This hotel and club has a great deal of history with its tennis affiliations, and while we do not play, one can appreciate and value the extensive photos, trophies and memorabilia.

It is apparent that the management and ownership of this complex are attentive to their guests, by their well trained staff that demonstrates real hospitality. We will share a separate review for the Marine Room Restaurant, but the service and cuisine there are EXCEPTIONAL!

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms and suites on the ocean side are a treat!

I was attending a conference in San Diego and opted to stay off site. The private beach and tennis courts were what drew me to LJBTC and they were worth the 10 minute drive to and from the conference daily. The club has, evidently, been an attraction for decades but has been well maintained. There is a definite feel of nostalgia but the units were clean, roomy, and fully modernized. My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom unit with kitchen overlooking the ocean. There was a full refrigerator, range, microwave, cooking utensils, coffee maker, large LCD TV, and free wireless Internet access. Our unit had three rooms in all- bedroom, kitchen, and TV room with desk. The beach was beautiful. The tennis courts (20 or more) were in excellent condition and there were daily offerings for group instruction (drill, clinic, or cardio-tennis). There was also private instruction available. The fitness center was very useful and practical offering all one really needs while on vacation (treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical machines, cybex station weight machines, dumbells, mats, Swiss balls, resistance tubing, and medicine balks). The pool was heated with three lanes for lap swimming. The staff was great (even offered to print up brackets for the NCAA basketball tournament for me so I could work on my picks). Units and grounds were well maintained. Parking was free. Close to San Diego and all of the local attractions. This is a quaint, classic resort and pleasing alternative to the ordinary- especially if you enjoy swinging a tennis racket.

We spent four nights at this hotel. The rooms and furnishings are pretty dated, but its location--right on the beach--is perfect for any and all beach activities. The service is wonderful--attentive without being pretentious. There are plenty of activities for all ages--tennis, pool, ping pong, etc., but our favorite was the fire pit on the beach. For a reasonable sum a family can order a fire pit, which will be set up at 5:00 on the beach, complete with chairs and a wind screen. We made s'mores (kits available at the hotel store) late at night, which our teens loved. Note for families with teens: the pool closes at sunset, and there is no hot tub. Tennis is also limited after dark.

Room Tip: We got a unit with a kitchen so we could cook to save money. It was equipped with the basics for fo...
