We specifically chose Estancia, because we were traveling with our baby. We considered the Gaslamp district, but worried about the noise. What we did not account for were the drunk and noisy wedding party guests, who wandered up and down the hallways until after 1am. While we were eating at the restaurants on the premises, we made sure to take... More

Located adjacent to UCSD and on Torrey Pines Rd north of San Diego, this resort is outstanding for three reasons--all things that people look for: 1) value: the resort and spa experience is priced right when balanced against what you get; 2) the location is outstanding: proximity to beaches or golf (if that is your thing); 3) rooms: large, in...

This very pretty hotel resort is just a few minutes walk from the bluffs 300 feet above Black's Beach. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Especially Brett at the front desk. We stayed 4 days for a wedding which took place in the courtyard. We were out with friends and family in the area most of the time so... More

This is a nice hotel, the rooms are always clean, the staff is nice, it has all the ingredients of a great hotel. However, there is something about it that makes me feel like it is a great place for a corporate retreat or a work meeting but not someplace I want to go with my wife or with my... More

The pros: 1) The hotel grounds are beautiful, it is located near the ocean and right by UCSD. 2) The bed was comfortable (my wife said it was the best sleep she has had in months). 3) In general the service was good. 4) Pool area is nice, but small. The cons: 1) Given the price, I expect better service.... More

I stayed here for a work conference both at Estancia and UCSD campus. From the friendly & hard working staff to the scenic walk through the property, you will not be disappointed.

Was down for the weekend for Comic Con. I had the pleasure of lounging around the resort and taking advantage of their beautiful amenities. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful! So many little hidden nooks to read a book or relax. The pool is beautiful and a relaxing area. The food in either restaurant is excellent but pricey; typical hotel pricing.... More

This is the 3rd time staying at the hotel, so obviously we like it. The location is not too far from L.A. for a quick getaway. I think the price can be a bit high, we only stay if we get a good deal and so try to book early and with a AAA discount. The grounds are beautiful, it... More

This is a boutique hotel with more good then bad. Service was friendly and hospitable upon check-in. The room was clean and large. Unfortunately the bottom floor rooms are dark as the only real window is the glass door that lets you in. If you do 't want everyone to see you walking around--you have to close the curtains creating... More
