    Somewhat disappointed

    Towels seems old and need to be upgraded/change out. The front desk at check-in was not courteous. The male attendant waited until he completed my check-in before he said "welcome@. Suggestion, train your staff on courtesy and respect to everyone. Don't judge the book by its cover. Lots of business experienced difficulties due to poor service. Eat to fix. Make the effort...

    Needs a complete overhaul-Lovely staff

    The hotel itself is very run down. Dirty carpets, stained chairs in rooms, chipping furniture. The grounds need a good clean up and manicuring. Nothing like the pictures at all. The food is overpriced for poor quality and small portions. The great thing about the hotel by far is the staff. EVERYONE is very nice, kind and accommodating.

    Celebrating 20th wedding anniversary

    We loved the spanish architecture of the buildings, the beautiful landscaping, and layout of the resort with private courtyards and spaces. It was so relaxing and peaceful. Our room was very nice. The location was great as we hiked down to the beach, and took in the amazing views from the cliffs overlooking the beach/ocean. It did not feel "busy" and crowded compared to downtown La Jolla. We had a wonderful time!

    Estancia pros and cons

    Overall good ;pool was not clean ; and way over crowded ; so we did not use them which was a bummer we really would have liked to use hot tub but there were a group of people all friends who sat in it for the entire time we were down there and you could not fit another person in there if you wanted 😏 food and beverage prices ridiculously high; staff was great very friendly and helpful ; property and grounds very lovely and relaxed

    Overall we had a very pleasant experience. The hotel is beautiful and was very clean. Initially our air conditioner did not work and we waited a while for someone to fix it. Ultimately the problem was resolved. We also brought out dog which was a huge plus and we were grateful to be staying at a dog friendly hotel. All in all, would stay there again.

    The property is beautiful- no doubt but I felt like they nickel and dimed everything. $35 a day to self park? A resort fee when the gym is closed ? No daily maid service. The coffee shop was ok- but the croissants were a few days old 😟. It seems covid has become the excuse to let quality slip. One highlight- Mustangs and Burros dinner was excellent!

  • 4.0.Fair

    The hotel and its garden were nice. But we had to check out early and did not even stay the night there because there was a "big spider" in our bed. The hotel staff did not even get surprised about that and did not even apologize for that. We had to pay full room price hotel service fee without even staying there. It was a disappointing experience.
