Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa in La Jolla, California

Located in the charming community of La Jolla, just minutes from Torrey Pines Golf Course and 14 miles north of San Diego, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa is a stylish retreat reminiscent of an early California ranch estate. The property - listed on Condé Nast Traveler's coveted Gold List and Hot List - pays homage to its rich history by emulating and utilizing materials from the original 1880s equestrian compound. The business center resembles the original caretaker's cottage, the intimate hotel lobby was created from the old farmhouse, and Mustangs & Burros, the hotel's rustic rancho-style bar, was inspired by the tack room. Even the restaurants reflect the old spirit in their design, menu concepts and gracious service.

This coastal hideaway is set on nearly ten tree-laden acres coupled with fragrant ground coverings such as rosemary and sage. The hotel houses a collection of freestanding Spanish buildings coupled with hidden courtyards and trailing pathways. Equestrian-style doors and sky-lit windows add a light and airy feeling to the plush guest rooms. Slip into the fitness room for an early morning workout, spend the afternoon draped across a massage table or do a little celebrating sideways at the hotel's very own wine bar. Dips in the cabana-flanked pool prove to be refreshing day or night. Venture off property to discover the pounding surf, verdant fairways, hidden hiking trails and protected wetlands. If you are more partial to Prada than park lands, head to the enchanting village area to prowl the designer shops and eateries.

Simply put, the service at this hotel is subpar. We had issues with room assignment and housekeeping and don't get me started on the service at Adobe restaurant. Service at the restaurant was among the worst I have experienced. Extremely slow or downright inattentive. The grounds and pool are quite nice and the shuttle driver, Larry, was awesome. Unfortunately this isn't enough to overcome the service issues. I would not stay again at half the price. Do not recommend.

I stayed here in July and thought the grounds were amazing along with the hotel but left a little disappointed. I found the staff to be quite cold. My room was located very far from reception and the view was undesirable. As for the room itself it was spacious and clean so I have no complaints there. The food was exceptional and I had pancakes for breakfast which were delicious. The pool area is amazing. Very tranquil which really let's you unwind. This hotel has idealistic grounds but a few cold staff members really spoiled the experience.

We stayed at Estancia La Jolla for 4 days because we had a conference at UCSD. The room was very nice, if a bit dated. We had a small patio area, accessible through French doors, but it was separated from the parking lot by only a wall. So we had balcony envy because rooms above us and on the courtyard had balconies. The cleaners did a great job every day, the room was quiet. All in all, nothing to complain about but also maybe not as fancy as you expect for the price. It was a 10-minute walk to the conference venue, which was perfect. My husband swam in the pool every day, and proclaimed it a nice pool before it got crowded in the afternoons. They were doing construction work while we were there on the pool and the area around it, which was noisy and a bit dusty. The fitness center is small, but has a variety of machines, stability balls, yoga mats, some free weights, some weight machines. One really nice feature was a free shuttle that would take you anywhere within about 5 miles of the hotel. We had them drop us off at the Torrey Pines Park one day, and in LaJolla for dinner one night. Larry the driver was friendly and accommodating, as were the guys at the front door and the concierge Brett. Definitely talk to Brett if you're thinking about taking a walk or hike in the area; he knows a lot and gives great directions.

The walking distance from UCSD and the beauty of the resort made me very curious about Estancia. I found a deal on the internet for the deluxe double room. It was not clear whether it included the $25 resort fee. A few days prior to our stay, my son stated he wanted to stay with us than on-campus. I called Estancia about changing rooms or adding a rollaway bed, and the woman stated she could not help me because we purchased through a hotel wholesaler. Also, she stated a rollaway was unlikely too. At this point, I decided to cross my fingers and bring a yoga mat for my son to sleep on the floor. On check-in, we were greeted by awesome valets, a wonderful guy at check-in, no extra charge for a rollaway bed that fit our 6 ft. 17 yr. old. The room was clean, comfortable and very nice. The walls were rather thin as we could hear the mumbled conversation of our neighbor and their ringing phone. We walked to UCSD and a nearby path to the cliffs to watch the sunset. Beautiful! The restaurant Mustang & Burros was excellent. Upon check-out there was a $25 resort charge. And while we didn't use the resort pool, hot tub, spa, etc., the complimentary bottle of wine and bottled waters took the sting out of this nickel & dimed charge.
