The rooms are lovely, the staff excellent. Our car was always ready when we wanted to drive away, and they gave us water bottles every time. Good directions for getting places. Fun to view the weddings in the gardens during the weekend. Good breakfasts for everyone. We'll be back soon

My wife and I spent our third wedding anniversary at Estancia La Jolla. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The grounds resemble a California mission, with Spanish tile and fountains throughout the property. It makes for a very relaxing atmosphere.

Our room was an entry-level King. It was plenty spacious for two people. Everything was clean and orderly. The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet and we got a great night's sleep. Can you really ask for anything more in a hotel room?

We spent a couple hours by the pool. The crowd was small, which added to the relaxed atmosphere. There were plenty of helpful staff members nearby to take drink orders and make us feel accommodated and pampered.

Recommendations for travelers: Make the short drive to La Jolla Shores. The sea wall is fantastic. There's a colony of 200 seals that hangs out on the beach. Also, hiking at Torrey Pines State Park is a must. The Estancia is equidistant to both; less than 10 minutes by car.

I am strong beliver in restricting the 5 star reviews only to exceptional Hotels/Restaurant . Estancia fits the bill for the perfect Holiday / Buisiness hotel in San Diego .

Whether you are in San Diego for work or buisiness , Estancia leaves you with a relaxed feeling . Rooms are comfortable , clean and well maintained . Mexcian restaurant in the hotel server wonderful food and drink and it s nice place to unwind after a long day at work .

Free Valet parking and Wifi are welcome additions to the wonderful stay at Estancia .

The Estancia hotel and spa was amazing from the moment you drove up the winding driveway to the spanish style lobby area. The employees treated our large group as kings and queens. Every staff member from Nick at the Valet, Zack and Marc Stein at the front desk, Sherry at the spa/salon, housekeeping, even the painter were friendly, genuinely concerned for our well being, and made sure every detail was taken care of for our group. I appreciated the resort layout, the beautiful green landscaping, the rooms, the bed, the features such as the auto light in the closet, the bathroom setup and the bar and outdoor seating. I would highly recommend this to go for business and pleasure. It is definitely an elegant resort, with a feeling of comfort and consistent superior service that is absolutely genuine. Thank you to the entire staff - we had an amazing time.
