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. It was a great spot with beautiful grounds and gorgeous décor. Service was good, rooms were perfect, location was convenient to shopping and they had a fun bar area, with salsa...

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...

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.
