Went there with the wife for a one night getaway. The hotel is nice enough but the service is suspect. Waited a good 30 minutes poolside to only have waiter tell me he'd be back in 5 mins. Waiter brought me half my order. Food was good though. Spa front desk was a mess. Unorganized and not that helpful. I...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! It's our local go to that is always a blast. From the staff to the gorgeous grounds (pool/spa) and choice of restaurants, you can not go wrong. They have added a little coffee shop/store that is darling. Another smart addition is a beautiful Mercedes shuttle that will take and pick you up within a 5...

This is a review for the day spa only - have no clue about hotel or any other facilities. I have visited the spa on three separate occasions now and love it. While the spa area can get a little over crowded (particularly the outside, private area), the treatments are truly amazing and the staff is experienced and well worth...

This is supposed to be a luxury place. Check in lines took about 40 minutes to get checked in. I went back to the lobby desk the next day to find out about check out times. That took another 15 minutes. They definitely need more staff at the front desk. They will add fees for everything. eg., one hour delay...

Dr S, thank you for the review of your stay at Estancia La Jolla. Our sincerest apologies for the slow service at the front desk. The wait times you experienced certainly do not meet our standards and we can understand your frustration. In preparation for the busy summer season, we do have some new staff in that department and are...

Great place with beautiful grounds. Rooms were nice and updated and outdoor bar was great. Would recommend. The only negative was basic omelet in the morning with no add ons or even coffee was $35. Come on, that's crazy! The plants all over were gorgeous!

The Estancia La Jolla is a beautiful property, and it was our first and probably last time there. We were there for my fiance's birthday, so in booking the room on the phone I specifically asked for a room with a nice view and outside sitting area, and also flowers to be in the room. They got the flowers right,...

I love this place sooooo much. If it were up to me I would give this place 30 out of 5. When I went here I had the most relaxing experience ever! My mind was actually blown. The entry area was so neat and beautiful. I was able to take my time getting dressed in my robe and I had...

The grounds of the Estancia are beautiful! The service and amenities are very good too. I got a fantastic bagel and chai from the coffee shop in the morning. It was very good and convenient on my way to the office. Highly recommend!

We were very much looking forward to celebrate our anniversary here. We were disappointed by their inability to accommodate their surge of people. The pool area was small and all the seating was "reserved" by towels. When we asked about the cabanas , they tried to offer us a discount at a rate of $100 at 4 in the late...

Simply put, the service at this hotel is subpar. We had issues with room assignment and housekeeping and don't get me started on the service at Adobe restaurant. Service at the restaurant was among the worst I have experienced. Extremely slow or downright inattentive. The grounds and pool are quite nice and the shuttle driver, Larry, was awesome. Unfortunately this...
