This resort sports lovely gardens that give more than a sense of serenity but also one of wanting to return. I stayed as a business trip 4 nights and have only 3 complaints that would otherwise change my rating to EXCELLENT from Very Good. First, room service- delivered my hot soup without a soup spoon and then took another 30...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write review. We are so glad to hear that you plan to stay with us again. I truly apologize about not bringing a spoon for your soup. You are absolutely right- there is nothing worse than cold soup! I will follow up with the team to make sure we do not...

We attended a wedding at the Estancia La Jolla last weekend. Stayed Thursday night to Sunday. From the valet service to check in to check out we were quite impressed. The young college student that showed us the room on check in was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We had a 1st floor garden room, very clean and...

This hotel might be the best kept secret in San Diego. If you are looking for a peaceful or romantic getaway, this is definitely the place to stay. It is a bit isolated, but there's no reason to leave the grounds. From the minute I drove up to this unique property, I knew I would enjoy my stay. The Estancia...

I've stayed at several 5-star resorts nation wide, however this was a quite and beautiful resort tucked away in La Jolla. The Head VIP Concierge Gabby DelGado was by far the best host I've encountered, once we arrived check in was fast and easy we walked in our room and Gabby had a bottle of wine with waters and chocolates...

Lovely setting, beautifully maintained garden, but be prepared to pay a “resort fee to thoroughly enjoy our property amenities” ... this translates as hefty service charges for things you get for free in cheaper hotels. Also, do expect to pay for valet parking for your car (one would expect this in a high-rise Tokyo hotel but at expansive Estancia?) So...

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. I’m sorry you found our location nestled in Torrey Pines between the villages of Del Mar and La Jolla a bit inconvenient. You are correct in that it is a short drive in either direction and cabs are often reluctant to come to our property, though not...

Beautiful hotel. The grounds are lovely. In the morning it was,lovely to grab a coffee and sit in the grounds and take a nice leisurely start to your day. I was here on business and it was a very pleasant stay. There is an additional resort fee and valet parking is steep, but I would return. The room was comfy,...

Stayed there for several days with a large group of friends and was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The only thing lacking quality is the general food service operation. I'm not sure if the resort operates the restaurants and bars or if they contract it out. But the overall experience was...
