WOW! Brady is the man to see when you check-in. His hospitality is unmatched. He also answered every concern and if there was a problem he was the man to fix it! He was very helpful! 10/10 recommend! He even provided a special surprise for a special person. We coordinated it and everything!

Hotel's Favorite
Pretty Property. Super location near cliffs of La Jolla - beautiful walk or jog above the cliffs or down to the beach. Easy ride to / from airport. The rooms feel like cottages due to location off of the gardens and courtyards. The staff was friendly and helpful and though they were respectful with distancing, they weren't yelling at residents about face coverings in the open air areas. Overall Great experience.

The Estancia is an amazing property in La Jolla! We recently hosted our group there for a week long course and we can not recommend it enough. The grounds are gorgeous and the team at the Estancia is AMAZING. From the start Debbie and Kira were extremely helpful during the pre-meeting planning and once on-site they continued to show excellent customer service along with Kim and Marcy. The AV for our meeting was produced without any issues thanks to the awesome AV team of Max and Bob. Our meals on property were amazing (kudos to the chef!) and they were served by a great team thank you again Olga, Felipe G, Chris, Leslie, David, Elva, and Noelle to name a few. Many of our attendees commented on how amazing everyone was and we could not agree more. We really could not of asked for more from our stay at the Estancia and we are already looking forward to returning next year!

I have made several trips to Estancia. It is a beautiful gem and refuge in La Jolla. I am a UCSD alumnus and I have loved coming back to stay at Estancia. It was beautiful then, and it is beautiful now. It is so close to the campus, convenient to get to, and it has the feel of a private quiet garden in the midst of La Jolla. The service, the spa, and the food have been first rate every trip I have made. I look forward to coming again.

We recently hosted a large event at the Estancia where we hosted 140 people for an offsite meeting. The entire experience with planning our event (Debbie was incredible to work with!) to the moment we arrived and departed was outstanding. The staff at the Estancia made us feel so welcome and the actual property itself was perfect for a larger group. It was such a memorable event and our guests raved about the Estancia! Thank you so much for making this such a wonderful experience!

Such a relaxing birthday celebration at Spa Estancia! Juliette and Mallory are very sweet and welcomed us with a lovely glass of champagne and house made truffles. We experienced amazing massages by Jose and Moly and complimentary smoothies after our session. Thank you for making us feel so special - We will definitely be back!

The room was immaculate and the location was exactly what I needed because I was attending a conference at UCSD. The systems, however, did not work at all - room service, tipping, exiting the parking lot, checkout - none of them worked correctly. It took me TWO HOURS to get out of there. Also, when I arrived alone with a wrist brace and a bunch of bags, the desk clerk did not offer to help me and did not mention that my room, on the far end of the hotel, was not accessible by an elevator. I got a bit of a deal because of the conference, which brought the price down to 250/night. For a thousand bucks, I expect to have some help with my bags and to not have to wait a half hour for someone to come let me out of the parking lot when the system doesn't work.

For the people who rate this lower than 5 stars, I'd love to see what they are rating higher. This isn't the typical high rise or chain hotel, it feels more like an estate with different gardens and sitting areas, fireplaces outside and inside, just a great, quiet layout. The rooms were very well appointed, beds comfortable, people serving us were pleasant. Would never hesitate to recommend the place. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed in other more expensive hotels in the area and this was by far our favorite, and the price point is less than several others that we did not like as much. We already recommended it to friends. We will definitely be back. The gardens area give you a sense of peace and quiet and there is a nice path (about 1 mile down a steep grade) to the beach for those who want to stretch their legs
