We recently stayed at The Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa. It truly was a six-star experience!! It is a beautiful resort, the service was excellent, the grounds gorgeous, the rooms, dining experiences, spa, fireplaces, valet, concierge, etc. were all top-notch!! Everything was impressive! and exceeded my expectations (and believe me, I am picky). I couldn't have picked a greater...

6 stars! This is a first! We could not be more thrilled, in fact our GM Terry, who you mentioned in your review shared this with the entire staff. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and recognize a few all-stars from our team. We hope to see you again soon!

We love this hotel. Personnel were very kinf from the cleanning staff to the managers. I will say the only cons is the valet parking which is a little bit of a pain but the guys where very nice. For those looking for a beach hotel this is not walking distance to the beach but other that that I will...

Lovely Old California look and feel. The hotel is large enough to be comfortable, but broken up into charming garden areas, outdoor fireplace patios, spa, pool and restaurants that give it a real private club feel. Its a resort to make "your place " and come back to often. I booked a spa treatment and stayed to relax in the...

We booked a package deal here and the agent was very helpful. Explained all fees, and even ended up waiving a few once we checked out. We were a little cautious before getting there because we had read other reviews here detailing renovations. To our relief, these had wrapped up and everything looked to be in great shape. The grounds...

This was my first experience and visit with the Estancia Hotel. To say I was impressed is an understatement!! From the valet team, to the grounds, front desk etc...everything was fabulous! The room accommodations were anything you would find in a five star hotel, and the ammenities were superb. The hotel gave our family a five star experience without the...

This wasn't our first stay in La Jolla (we love La Jolla!), but it was our first stay at the Estancia. We had seen the entrance before when driving down Torrey Pines Rd. so we decided to try it when our dog was having surgery at a nearby veterinary hospital. We thought we were only going to be staying one...

Estancia La Jolla was very average. Even with repeated requests, staff is unable or incapable of enforcing the "no children under 14" rule posted very clearly at the Jacuzzi. Families with toddlers and young children filled the Jacuzzi, as if it was a kiddie pool for kiddie diving and swimming. This happened every day, and was not a one-time issue....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you chose a Suite Escape, but would like to offer our apologies once again for the miscommunication with the herbal tea and housemade biscotti that is part of the Suite turn down service.

We stayed at estancia because of a travelzoo we saw. We had wanted to stay near San Diego and this was perfect! We were surpassed on our expectations and loved the resort. Nice pool area, good service and everyone is very nice. The only thing that was a little bit off was the slow service at the breakfast restaurant. Other...
