“Great place for families”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The semi-private beach is like a gigantic sandbox--great for little kids and big kids alike. It's a safe place for children to run around while parents enjoy tennis and the beach. Loved the kids club, especially their movie nights. Just wish that one of the tennis courts was a clay court.

Booked 3 nights here over Labor Day weekend 2013. My family of 5 wanted to be right on the beach and indeed we were. Waves crashing outside our room. Because this is a private club, being able to stay as a hotel guests gives you the benefit of being "a member" for the time you are there without actually joining. There are lots of staff around to set up your lounge chairs, beach umbrellas and provide towels. You can order food and drinks (including alcohol) directly on the beach. As the tide comes in, it gets a bit chaotic because what is already a small strip of beachfront, gets much smaller and on a crowded day, groups start to encroach a bit upon each other. As it gets closer to sunset, families and large groups start setting up elaborate dinner tables, bar-b-ques and kids are running around. This spot is far from romantic, but great for families with kids. The rooms are in need of a major update. Beds and linens were very comfortable and each room comes with a small kitchen, which is great for not having to eat every meal from the club/hotel. But the property which is steeped in tradition (1934) is a bit ragged. The carpet is old, as in the furniture. The room was clean, but for about $530 per night, it would be wonderful to have the room be brought up to 2013 standards for the price. I assume the hotel is not the focus of the property, but instead the social, beach, tennis and golf club for the members, which is understandable. I would consider staying here again, though,since the convenience of the location and ease of being there with kids was great.

This is the perfect place for the well-to-do family exploring SoCa. The LJBTC has the ability to pull out all the stops in every way. But, the rest of us can get a less expensive room and still enjoy the facilities as well, dine within walking distance and not spend a fortune. An off note: the room's walls were paper thin, so we could hear our noisy, inconsiderate neighbors. But, everybody has access to the wonderful beaches, the towel & chair services, etc. that you may recall from Cape May or even St. Trop-

Walking distance to numerous restaurants, kayak rentals, small grocery store, bars. Drivable (5-10) to downtown La Jolla strip (Prospect/Girard).

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms ##140-145 have paper-thin walls. They are cheap, but beware. Ask for rooms ups...

La Jolla is a favorite of this "East Coaster". Location, dining, shopping are great. I had not heard of the Beach and Tennis Club until a Trip Advisor review tipped us off. Rooms were great at good prices. Historic tennis courts were top notch. Even the executive 9 hole golf course was great fun.Food at 3 restaurants was very good. Beach Bar BQ with son cooking was a highlight. Beautiful beach and kayaking ... all minutes from down town. Truly a jewel of a place.
You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Extra $ for beach room is worth it.

The location and amenities are unparalleled for a summer-time family destination. Comfortable rooms with luxury linens and complete kitchens. Spectacular views of the Pacific ocean and coast line. Best part is the beach is groomed daily and chairs/umbrellas are set up by staff. We enjoy visiting the local shops next to the club or take the scenic walk to the cove via the coast-line trail. It's all great and makes for lifetime family memories. We have vacationed at the LJBTC for over 40 years and will continue to return.

We have been vacationing at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club for fifteen years. Not a year has gone by that we haven't made at least one trip here- most years coming two or three times. The club has old world charm and offers a variety of experiences depending on budget and season. Winter time is our favorite time to visit as it is beautiful weather and less crowded than summer. The summer season is the high season which drives the pricing up, but what a perfect place to be in July! I recommend having the club set up a table and catered dinner on the beach at sunset! The tennis courts are in good shape with plenty of clinics and pro coaching if desired. LOTS to do for the kids! Playground, community beach toy box, kids camp, etc, etc. Love it here!

Room Tip: Get a beachfront suite!

Loved this resort! We stayed over the 4th of July and had a wonderful time. It is perfect for families. The price is high, but our 2 bedroom suite had a great view and worked well for the 5 of us. We did the beach BBQ and watched the fireworks on the beach which was lovely. The best part, beyond being able to walk straight out onto the beach from your room, is the friendliness and service mentality of everyone who works on the property. We met people at the BBQ who have been coming every year for over 30 years and we can understand why. We'll be back.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom suite with beach views on the lower level are fantastic.

Thank you for the great review! The 4th of July is one of the most popular holidays here at the Beach Club. I am so pleased you and your family were here to enjoy the festivities. We strive to create great family memories at the Club and what better way to do that is a holiday BBQ and fireworks! We hope to see you again next year!
