great getaway

My husband and I decided to have a mini getaway after our wedding since we are waiting a few months to go on a trip. This was the perfect place to do that and just relax. Very comfortable and pampering atmosphere all around from the glass of champagne at check in to the valley drivers on your way out. We will definitely be back!

It doesn't get any better than this.

The staff were extremely courteous and professional. The hotel offered all sorts of extra nice touches like complimentary bottled water in your room and the valets offered it as you were leaving. The food was creative, not mundane, and superb. The atmosphere was very peaceful and well kept. We could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. We will be coming back.

Just south of the fabulous Torrey Pines golf course and gourmet restaurant. And just a short drive to the beach in La Jolla. Loved the location out of the downtown La Jolla frenzy.

Wonderland

Always wanted to stay at this Hotel. A beautiful getaway. Rooms are HUGE and CLEAN! Loved the closet! Bathroom is huge! I would have preferred all resort fees and valet parking fees included in the room price from the beginning as you are going to drink coffee in your room, you might drink the complimentary coffee the hotel provides. Dinning experience at the hotel wasn't amazing as we waited 35 minute to get our Burgers. But in the end, It was worth it!

Seashore is in 10 min walking distance. It was an amazing view. There are Man made steps that would help you get down the cliff and get to the shore. You can not miss this if you love nature.

The hotel is newer and has a Spanish hacienda feel with lush landscaping. Most rooms face a courtyard with a fountain,

Perfect Setting

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa couldn't be in a better location as it's close to all that San Diego has to offer & nearby Torrey Pines State Reserve. The grounds were enchanting & the decor was inviting. It truly felt like a "destination" in & of itself. Do note that there is a daily valet fee of $25, which along with the daily hotel fee added on to the cost of our stay. That said, it was a treat not to have to worry about parking the car & walking to & from a lot with our belongings, especially after dark. Our car was always waiting as requested & it was great to be offered unlimited bottles of water to take with us for the day. The staff at Estancia was friendly & helpful, making our stay one to remember.

Be sure to take in the hiking opportunities at Torrey Pines State Reserve. There are several walks to choose from & none of them terribly difficult or long. The views are definitely worth it & one of the highlights of our trip. We hiked all of them in order 3 hours!
