The valets were very nice and gracious and when we drove in we were told it was valet parking only but I don't think this is true. Whilst its convenient, it can add up with multiple tips if you come and go often. Check in was a breeze and because we were celebrating our anniversary, we were told we had...

I'm late on this review. Been here 3 times and would have given 4+ stars from our first two stays 2010-2011. However our last stay was a shocking change, my review will be based on our last stay. PROS: Valet, front desk are always on par and very helpful even when we have checked in at busy times. Always gracious....

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to share with you that since your stay in 2012 the hotel underwent a $4.8 million enhancement project for all guest rooms, the entire spa and the pool deck. We completed this project in January 2013 and all of the changes have been quite well-received. As for your comment on the dining...

Thank you for the review, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed the furnishings in your guest room, as well as our public spaces and gardens. I’m sorry that the pool was busy during your stay- it does tend to be a popular spot on warm weekends. Thank you again for taking the time to post such helpful feedback.

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your guest room. I’m sorry for the inconvenience of having to use your key to get into the interior guest room corridors. This is merely a safety precaution that we have in place due to the rather open layout of our property. Please do not hesitate to...

Wonderful place to rest and enjoy the beauty of La Jolla. I went a few days early before a business meeting and met some girlfriends before heading to LA.

Enjoyed one nights stay here last month ... Beautiful room -- everything new, clean and quiet. Two notes for fellow travelers: you will be charged a $17 "hospitality fee" for bottled water etc when you check in -- also, parking is valet only.

I love this place. My husband took me for my birthday weekend and it was beautiful. The courtyards are beautiful as is the service. Happy hour at Mustangs and Burros was great. The pitcher or Margaritas was amazing and perfect with the $6 fish taco platter. Breakfast at their restaurant was worth every calorie. Highly recommend Estancia.

A brilliant stay for the week and we were looked after very well. Nothing was too much trouble - even lent an umbrella to visit the zoo (pouring down). Breakfast was a real treat. Although essentially a business trip, it became more of a holiday thanks to the staff and facilities - and one that I wish European hotels could...

Thank you so much for the review. It sounds like you experienced unusual San Diego weather during your stay, but I’m glad to hear that it didn’t stop you from visiting the Zoo and exploring the area. We are very happy that your business trip felt more like a holiday. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel soon.

Although I've only stayed for work, this is one of my favorite properties in San Diego. The grounds are impeccably kept and the rooms are clean and comfy. This is perfect for a stay cation or for those who want to experience a different side of San Diego/La Jolla

This is truly a first-quality resort located in the heart of La Jolla just minutes from downtown San Diego and the airport and just across the street from UC San Diego (don't be concerned about the proximity to the college - once inside the walls of the resort, you would swear you were in the Caribbean). Incredibly lush gardens surround...
