The staff was attentive and helpful. The food and drinks were great and not overpriced. No matter what the reason for your stay is you will definitely enjoy.

I stayed one night on business at the Estancia. The room was fine. The wireless internet was fast, free, and easy to use. The grounds are pretty, but it's very easy to get lost walking around.

If you park your own car, you are in a fairly dark parking lot that is publicly accessible (There is a gate but the gate was open when I drove in).

This is a fine place to stay if the UCSD location is ideal for you.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in July 2011. Overall I'm happy with the hotel, but I think I'd probably stay somewhere else next time. I think there are better choices in the area. Here are some factual observations:

1. I've stayed in the rainforest and the Australian outback. I think it's fair to say that both of these places have lots of bugs and critters. That being said, I had to kill more bugs in my room at the Estancia than either the rainforest or the outback. Each day I had to kill at least 2-3 bugs. There were bugs in the shower almost every day.

2. Unless you are going to UCSD, there's nothing near the hotel. It's at least 10 minutes by car to anything. I'm going to stay in Del Mar or La Jolla next time.

3. The rooms are nice, but typical. Nothing special. The grounds are very nice, and the pool area is very nice. it's a big pool, with a big hot tub.

3. The valet was very efficient, but I think it is a bit expensive. The valet rate is more what I'd expect to pay in a downtown setting, not in a suburban hotel.

My adult daughter, teenage grandson and I stayed for six days and had excellent experience. The room was spacious, beds comfortable, toilet had a separate door which made it possible for someone to shower, while someone was in the bathroom. We booked a package on Travelocity and received a good price. The valets were very helpful, promptly retrieved our car several times a day, remembered my name, and keeped me supplied with bottles of water. I will definetly recommend this place. The grounds were also very beautiful. But you do need to have a car to get arround.

We stayed there in June, because I had some business with UCSD. It is right across the street from UCSD. We spent another day afterwards.
The location is beautiful and the gardens are spectacular and well maintained. There is an ocean of colorful flowers everywhere. It is a charming and quiet place with excellent and friendly service. The food in the restaurants is very good. The rooms are clean and the bed very comfortable.
Estancia is not that close to shops, restaurants and the ocean, but the drive is not far and traffic is not bad.
