We just returned from an amazing vacation at La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club.
The good first: We arrived on a Tuesday and were shown to our room. It was very small and old feeling, but five minutes later, we were told that we had been upgraded to a beachside one-bedroom suite. It changed the tone of our vacation. The room was breathtaking and I wish I had known the difference in room styles when I booked -- I would have sprung for the oceanside one-bedroom from the beginning.
The resort was an AMAZING experience with a 2-and-a-half year old. It was extremely kid friendly, with kid toys on the beach to the ease of being close to the room from the beach for naps and meals. The beachside BBQ was also a nice experience, although a little pricey.
A few not-so-great points: We were told upon check-in that the water would be shutdown from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. due to an emergency issue. It didn't bother me at the time, but when I went to turn on the water at 3:40 p.m…. nothing. We called several times over the next few hours for an update, and each time we were told it would be another half hour. The front desk staff seemed genuine with apologizes, but it was frustrating and prevented us from showing and going off property for dinner. I chalked this experience up to part of what happens when you select an older hotel. Another downside was the flies on the beach. There were massive amounts around 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. everyday, but I was told the flies are never this bad.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone seeking a very relaxing, traditional beach-style vacation. We had a few hiccups, but overall, I would go back in a heartbeat.
