It's on the pricey side but it's a great hotel. All the employees are very hospitable and courteous. Great experience for sure. Pros: - very clean - hot tub - pool - location Cons: - price - distance between lobby and rooms - no breakfast included

My daughter is in UCSD studying for a year, and I needed a hotel that was near to her student accommodation. The Estancia was perfect. A short walk to her campus, and easy for us to meet, and spend some quality time together. The room was spacious overlooking the gardens. The bed was so luxurious and comfortable. The staff were...

Looks like a garden with villas but really is a big conference center! It was wonderful not being in a typical corporate-feeling conference hotel. The meeting venue and food were great but so was the room and service. Loved the fresh brand toiletries and frette linens. Comfortable bed. We ate at a few of the restaurants which were also great!...

Excellent hotel in haciënda style. Spacious rooms, most with balcony. Beautiful garden. Breakfast is superfluous and of good quality. We have tried both restaurants and we can recommend them. As we Europeans like to walk this was unfortunately not the most ideal location. About a 15 minute car drive from La Jolla downtown.

I was only here overnight and so may not have a great sense of the place. The room I was in was quite a distance from reception. The view onto the courtyard was lovely--the landscaping is very well done. The room, though surface clean, was uncomfortably dirty in a "needs to be refreshed" way. The carpet had several bad stains,...

We chose this hotel because it looked beautiful and was close to Black's Beach. Everything was clean, staff was very friendly and helpful. We did the Valentine's special dinner and it was delicious. The strawberry daiquiris were the best I've ever had.... Thank you for a great 3 days!

Our son and new daughter in law were married at this venue on 2-4-17. The majority of family, guests, and wedding party stayed at the hotel. Beautifully landscaped grounds, great restaurants on site, with reasonable prices. We enjoyed cocktails and appetizers outside, then dined and danced in the Grande Ballroom. It was a smaller wedding ( about 100) and this...

Service and housekeeping were very attentive. Spa experience was good. Nice hot tub area in both men and women's dressing areas. Restaurant was ok, but nothing special. Fitness area is small. Room was comfortable and well maintained. Looks like a hotel that might be nice for meetings or events, but do not expect a view of the water.

I came from Los Angeles to attend a wedding that expected more than 300 people. Most, if not all, of these folks had made reservations at this hotel. Nevertheless, the afternoon I arrived (near official check in time), there was a single line of at least 10 people waiting to check in, with only two people on duty at the...
