“Great Getaway !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

What a great find.. beautiful grounds,lots of different plants etc. The two restaurants were both very tasty and the prices were within reason..The Mustang for dinner has some nice craft brews on draft which was a plus.
Complimentary coffe in the breakfast / lunch restaurant.
Great relaxing pool area , staff was super friendly.
Will certainly coming back soon..

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor which was very quiet.it was near the fountain.

Stayed for a work week - thoroughly enjoyed the gardens & the restaurant overlooking the estate. Beautifully manicured and a pleasure to roam throughout. The staff is very helpful and pleasant to interact with.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the interior gardens have the best ambience; open up the windows for the entire ni...

We work extremely hard at Estancia to create grounds that are both a beautiful and a tranquil place for our guest to enjoy; hearing reviews such as these make it all worth it. We are so happy to hear you had such a wonderful stay and were able to enjoy a lovely meal at Adobe El Restaurante. Hope to see you back soon!

We stayed for two nights at Estancia and we very much enjoyed our stay. From the front desk team to the bellmen, everyone was most welcoming and accommodating. Comp services include a welcome glass of sparkling wine, a bottle of wine in-room, Voss water in-room, WIFI, etc. Our room was clean, bright, comfortable and well appointed. We could suggest installing screens on the patio doors and perhaps replacing the one chair on the deck with a "settee" that could accommodate two people. It would also be convenient to have access to a coin laundry on site (we were traveling for 3 weeks). We liked the pool area and dining facilities. We will stay here again.

We stayed at this lovely resort Thanksgiving weekend and we loved it. It is owned by the same group that owns the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara and we can see the similarities. The service was excellent. The Sunday brunch was delicious and it is very close to Torrey Pines. We enjoyed a great walk on the beach and we loved the fact that they are "Puppy Friendly". It is about a 5 minute drive to La Jolla Cove so you can just take the house car down to the Cove and have dinner and drinks and you don't have to worry about drinking and driving.

Stayed two nights and it does have the getaway feel and yet is very convenient to UCSD, which I was visiting. However, in comparing resorts, the individuals rooms should be more resort like (it has the feel of a business hotel room) - look, eg, at the Four Seasons North Troon. I would like to highly commend the staff, however. They are very warm, hospitable and have this "can do" philosophy. And oh, I really like the classiness of being handed a glass of their own sparking wine upon check in. Keep it up!
I really liked their main restaurant "Mustangs and Burro's" - very creative, and nice wine list.

Stayed here two nights and attended a wedding on grounds. It was very beautiful even in the rain - did not get wet as all were provided umbrellas. We ate all are meals here - the food that was served during the wedding was fabulous. The food in the bar/restaurant was very good - not great and the service was a little slow. I thought the room was perfect - the beds VERY comfortable. I would recommend asking for a room on the third floor - was very convenient - and had a small balcony. There was a little wear and tear with the carpet - the room was very clean. It did take room service to 3:30 to make up the room. Overall a wonderful weekend and relaxing place to get away too!!

Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa is a lovely place. The gardens are beautiful and the hotel is nice and relaxing. I do not give this location a 5-rating due to the number of hairs stuck in the bathroom ceiling--it was disgusting! We figured it had to be from people who use the blow dryer and with the bathroom's humidity the hairs get stuck in the ceiling. I asked the gal in housekeeping to clean the hairs in the ceiling, but she must have forgotten (so much for the gratuity I have her).
