Stayed from 10th-13th July. Rooms are really nice, spacious and clean.The pool area is nice but the bar and grill were closed early on a few days because they said it was to quiet, what about the 10-12 people still around the pool, there was 4 of us and we went to get food when we arrived by the pool...

Thank you for the comments about our guest rooms- we’re glad you found them to be quite nice, spacious and clean. I’m sorry that we missed you and your friends at the Pool Bar & Grill, it typically closes at around 4:00 or 5:00 depending on business demands, but hopefully you were able to order through in-room dining. I will...

Stayed at this hotel for the weekend in July 2013 for a family wedding. The reservations manager made an error with my reservation and when discussing the reservation error she denied making an error. Had to get the General Manager involved to resolve the issue – and he did resolve it beautifully for us. It should not have gotten to...

Estancia has the ambience of an older luxury resort. The property is beautifully landscaped with lovely walkways throughout. It has a salt water pool and excellent spa. We were unable to eat breakfast or lunch there but the appetizer menu was fantastic and reasonably priced considering the high food quality. I had grilled fish tacos and a salad and my...

I've stayed here before, because it's close proximity to Torrey Pines golf course. It's also close to Scripps, where I was this past week. Lovely hotel, beautiful location, wonderful amenities, and my massage was one of the best ever!

I travel to La Jolla about once a month and typically stay at L'Auberge Del Mar. With the races opening this week, a friend suggested we try La Estancia instead. I was immediately impressed by the property and the courteous staff. I was here for business and my daughters were traveling with me. The hotel was completely full during our...

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback from your recent stay. While our GM did not receive a voicemail or email from you, perhaps you mean you left a message with the Front Desk? Assuming that is the case, I hope you received the voicemail from the Director of Front Office Operations earlier this week. He would like...

We stayed at the Estancia La Jolla for two nights in July as the hotel we had booked in San Diego wasn't available all five nights. After our two night stay, we wished we had booked the entire trip here. The location is convenient to Torrey Pines State Park and La Jolla Village and a short drive into San Diego....

I stayed here with my husband for one night, on a business trip. The property is very pretty and the valet parking staff is very attentive. The charge for the valet is $25 per the stay, I am not sure if this is daily or during your entire stay at the hotel. We were greeted by a friendly staff who...

We stayed at The Estancia for three nights, and truly loved the beautiful hotel. I was impressed with all the succulents and the Spanish / Old California feel. After a nice dinner we enjoyed sitting and reading our book in one of several courtyards with a relaxing fountain nearby. The hotel isn't located in a shopping area that you can...

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!!
