We stayed for the third time on Sunday, August 25th. We arrived early and greeted with a complimentary glass(s) of sparkling wine and received our upgraded room immediately. We had a patio room with direct access to the lovely courtyard. The front desk staff was very friendly and efficient. We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Mustangs and Burros and...

The staff were helpful and sweet, it was very clean and modern, the bar was great! The pool and hot tub were very nice, and the spa was exceptional! The breakfast was fantastic and the service was just as good, it wasn't busy when we went so it was perfect! Very child friendly, the rooms were just above average and...

We stayed at the Estancia for 2 nights for a company event. Although we enjoyed ourselves I felt like the hotel was just slightly off. First the positive. The hotel and grounds are absolutely stunning. It is quite spread out with multiple courtyards, all of which are beautifully landscaped. It is a beautiful place to wander around. I also was...

I am over 70 years old and am retired. I stayed solo for 31 nights (the month of July 2013) in a comfortable and quiet room in the middle of the second floor. The room was not sound proof. Now and then I would hear housekeepers banging on guestroom doors in the morning, but this did not bother me. Late...

Was it Emily Browning or Emily Bronte (?) who once said, "I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind." One weekend stay at Estancia made me feel that way, I could feel...

Service made us feel like we were in a far more expensive establishment. Very comfy bath robes. Good quality breakfast with extensive buffet or very well prepared a la carte items. Nice view of the pool from our room; landscaping makes it appear that the property is isolated. Very quiet. Speedy valet parking. Very accommodating: our daughter arrived unexpectedly and...

The hotel has lucious plantings but the rooms (atleast the one we stayed in) are just slightly above average. We did not find outstanding service with the exception of Peter who seemed to have several jobs (bellman, valet, etc). The pool area is nice but not large and was unindated with screaming children. We love kids, but it drove away...
