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.

Whenever I visit San Diego, we make a date to have lunch in the beautiful Estancia restaurants. The food is delicious, the elegant landscaping adds to the enjoyment, but above all, we go to see our favorite person, Lili. Thank you Lili for always making our lunch super fun!!

We returned to La Estancia in La Jolla in 2018 having had a decent stay in 2014. The grounds are pretty. The staff is friendly. However, we won’t return. The rooms are dated. The food is horrible. It is understaffed. The rates are relatively inexpensive, but we don’t fly for the weekend to La Jolla from Denver in order to save money.

Estancia is our "GO-TO" place when we head that way. It is the only hotel within walking distance of Black's Beach which makes it a perfect location. To spend a very relaxing day on the beach, and return to a divine meal at the restaurant, is true luxury. The breakfast buffet is huge and simply perfect, albeit quite expensive. The layout of the property can be quite confusing as most rooms are below street level. The courtyard for weddings is positively lovely.

1) Reservations were made directly through the hotel. I asked for a corporate discount, citing a local company. I was quoted a very good price with breakfast included. I accepted and the confirmation email was supposed to be sent immediately. After (5) working days with no email, I called the hotel again. Strange, they did not have my email on file. But, another confirmation would be sent immediately. Yeah, right. Three weeks later, I arrived at the front desk with no confirmation email but checked in without a problem. Next morning, on checkout, I learned I was charged full freight for (2) breakfasts. Clerk asked if I had a confirmation email. Well, no. By this time, I knew I was had; in a classic case of bait-and-switch. 2) When we arrived at our room on the first day, the toilet was plugged and the entryway floor was sticky; as if someone spilled a soft drink an the syrup dried. There also were a couple ticky-tack things in our room that, overall, showed poor Housekeeping Management. 3) On the other hand, we received outstanding service at dinner in Mustangs & Burros. Because of this, a second star was given. Bottom line: Were our expectations exceeded? No. Not even met.

Estancia is a jewel! My daughter and I flew in for a much-needed girls’ weekend, hoping for pampering and relaxation. Estancia didn’t disappoint. Dominique, a member of the front desk staff, was welcoming and helpful. She went out of her way to accommodate our request for a room change (didn’t want an accessible room). All of the staff are wonderful. The grounds are beautiful and the entire hotel exudes a sense of serenity. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The cocktails served at the Burros cantina are yummy and sitting by the outdoor fireplace, listening to live guitar was heavenly. Can’t wait to return!
