Estancia is a big compound just across the street from the main entrance of the University of California San Diego, very convenient if you have business at UCSD. It often hosts conventions and meetings, but it also has a spa--which I confess I did not have enough time to take advantage of it. I used the gym (average equipment, small...

Rooms were spacious, nicely appointed and staff really went out of their way to take care of every detail. Their signature eggs Benedict from the restaurant was amazing. Beautiful set up for the conference - we had all our meals there and all were really good. The coffee shop has wonderful espresso drinks and snacks. The property is in a...

We had a wonderful experience at Estancia. We arrived for a few days R&R before a convention in downtown. The grounds and hotel are beautifully maintained. Service was world class and done with a smile. The restaurants and in room dining were excellent. The shuttle service to La Jolla was prompt and Larry was wonderful. The kids enjoyed learning about...

This is a great resort. The quality of the rooms, restaurants, ambiance, and sevice were great. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The location was central to everything downtown LA Jolla, Scripps Park and Nature Reserve, downtown San Diego, and so much more. My husband and I Would definitely stay again.

Isolated location (ie nothing within walking distance - but I guess CA people don't walk except in the gym) and relatively expensive on site restaurants but excellent rooms and staff are very friendly. Very nice pool. Very convenient for UCSD and a short uber ride to downtown La Jolla.

Our family of 7 took 3 rooms and celebrated our father's birthday in La Jolla. We really didn't wish to be in the city of San Diego as much as we wanted to be in a hotel which offered good restaurants, good rooms, etc. Estancia is part of the Meritage Collection, Truly what made our visit so special were the...

It's on the pricey side but it's a great hotel. All the employees are very hospitable and courteous. Great experience for sure. Pros: - very clean - hot tub - pool - location Cons: - price - distance between lobby and rooms - no breakfast included

My daughter is in UCSD studying for a year, and I needed a hotel that was near to her student accommodation. The Estancia was perfect. A short walk to her campus, and easy for us to meet, and spend some quality time together. The room was spacious overlooking the gardens. The bed was so luxurious and comfortable. The staff were...

Looks like a garden with villas but really is a big conference center! It was wonderful not being in a typical corporate-feeling conference hotel. The meeting venue and food were great but so was the room and service. Loved the fresh brand toiletries and frette linens. Comfortable bed. We ate at a few of the restaurants which were also great!...
