... people. It was fantastic. That evening I was treated to some true American style buffalo wings which I must say were very good! Day 15- Spent the day with Heather and Kaitie doing some shopping and of course "starbucks-ing". In the evening we caught up with Becca and some other lovely ladies from the church and went to Pita Jungle for a really really nice dinner! Day 16- spent the morning shopping with Heather, Emily, Kaitie and Maddie. Went out for lunch and more ...

City Tour--overview

A travel blog entry by amybrownstein


... our view of both Mexico and the San Diego skyline.
We drove through Balboa Park for an overview of the museums and gardens.

Next we traveled to Old Town, San Diego's original location. Many of the buildings are original and the others historically restored. Our favorite was the Casa de Estudillo, a historic adobe home. It is a fine example of Spanish architecture and is listed as a National Historic Landmark.
We marked Old Town for more exploration ...

All Night Long

... her a Comic-Con exclusive Peanuts comic (but not a t-shirt because they were all sold out, and that was sad). Our last line was to take photos of each other pretending to be zombies at the Walking Dead stall. Finally, satisfied that we’d done everything and seen everything we wanted to at Comic-Con, we left the Convention Centre for the last time. Even after our day of free stuff, it was impossible not to get caught up in the Gaslamp Quarter madness. I nabbed a couple of ...

San Diego...relaxing and fun!

A travel blog entry by tonestar


... so I started in the Australian enclosure where they had Kookaburras and Koalas and Wallabies. As I had been away for so long, it was nice to see home animals. Then there was the African area where Camels were. There were also Giraffes and Rhinos which were so cool and even a whole heap of Flamingo birds which were an awesome sight to see. They were so pretty!!! I also got really close up to a lioness which was cool. She was right at the cage bottom where you stand and ...

La Jolla La Jolla!

A travel blog entry by lucyholliday


Actually pronounced La hoya, La Jolla is technically part of Sand Diego but feels like a completely different town. Its a small beachy town like Batemans Bay and is really quite nice. We caught the bus there and it was a long ride and we didnt quite know where to get off and got off a bit too early, but it was a nice day for a walk so we walked down to the touristy part and then down to the beach. Its not so much a beach, more cliffs and rocks with ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa

    Ecstatic about Estancia


    Our stay at Estancia LaJolla was unforgettable! We just got engaged while visiting San Diego and this was the perfect place to stay for our romantic getaway. We enjoyed Estancia's impeccable service, beautiful ambience, and relaxing spa. It is run by truly the nicest staff we have ever come across. It was so peaceful and serene with its combination of courtyards, fountains, and outdoor fireplaces. At night we would sit fireside under the stars at one of the hotel's restaurants listening to the guitar player and sipping margaritas. Estancia is the perfect place to unwind, rejuvinate, and just enjoy life. Our only problem now is try to find an equal to Estancia for our honeymoon!

    Loved the Estancia


    Stayed in an estate suite last weekend as they were offering some great internet rates. The suite was very spacious and nicely decorated. The staff at the spa were awesome -- willing to go above and beyond. We had drinks and lunch at the sports bar (mustangs & burros) and the food was great. The bartender was very friendly. The front desk staff was a little green but tried very hard. The hotel is very security conscious, which is a plus. My only complaint was the limited cable tv selections...missing some very basic channels like HGTV, Foodnetwork and VHI. Also, beware the overnight parking charge even when you don't valet. We were not made aware of it so they took it off our bill, without a big hassle. All in all, though, we loved it.

    Absolutely Oustanding.


    I just got back from a 4-day weekend in the San Diego area. Estancia far exceeded all my expectations. The grounds were beautiful, rooms immaculate, food was exceptional, service was oustanding, location couldn't be better. This hotel is worth every penny. I proposed to my girlfriend during the weekend in San Diego...the front desk/conceirge at Estancia (Kelly) helped me coordinate every step of the way and facilitated many of my plans weeks in advance. She helped me setup meals, day-trips, and a great display of roses and champagne in my room right after I proposed. All-in-all, I can't say enough good things about Estancia. I travel for work nearly 50% of the time and we stay in hotels such as Four Seasons and Ritz, but I would pick Estancia if I had the choice. Highly recommended!

    Wow wow wow


    We just got back from our "vacation at home" for our anniversary at the Estancia. I made the reservation as a surprise gift, after reading many reviews and looking around town. This place delivered. It was beautiful and romantic. I don't know how they got every member of the staff to be so friendly and helpful, with such attention to detail. They even sent a bottle of champagne to our room with their compliments for our celebration! Luxurious without being pretentious (a hard combo), the bed was lovely, the grounds were lush, the outdoor fireplaces a great touch. Leave the kids at home (there are plenty of better places in San Diego for them to run around) and go there, just the two of you, to relax and unwind.

    Beauty in La Jolla


    We just returned from staying at Estancia La Jolla hotel this last weekend, and I want to go back right now! The Staff was fantastic! If you can't make up your mind about going just think about relaxing by a big open fire place and sipping on a wonderful margarita served by a wonderful waitress(ours was Heather and she was fabulous)!. The dining experience we had at the Adobe wasn't that great, but there were so many positives that the negatives were washed out quickly. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay at a beautifully landscaped, and serence property (great for relaxing and soaking in all that La Jolla has to offer)! The rooms offer many wonderful ammenities (the bathrooms so in-style and clean, the lines anything BUT drab) the beds ARE, in fact, SO soft and comfy! The decor a true hit! And again, the staff courteous, outgoing, and their willingness to help goes above and beyond the call of duty. One word for Estancia...Fantastic!

    Quaint and Romantic Stay at the Estancia!


    We stayed at the Estancia La Jolla during the weekend of August 13-15. We loved the ambiance of the hotel....quaint courtyards, uniformed employees, spanish-style setting, and the outdoor fireplaces! We even had the opportunity to get massages at the spa which was very nice (but one suggestion would be to have magazines in the common room). The rooms were a good size with a really comfortable bed! I liked that the TV was high up for easier viewing. And the room colors and furniture were pretty cool.

    Beautiful, quiet hotel


    My husband & I just returned from a one night stay at the Estancia La Jolla and were very impressed. We were unfortunately in La Jolla for a funeral, but I chose the hotel based on the reviews by other TripAdvisor users. The room was comfortable and the bed was amazing! The location is out of the way which makes it quiet, but it's not very close to town. Since we weren't there for pleasure we didn't get to use the pool or even go to the restaurants on the property, but we agreed that we would like to come back on a happier occasion.



    My boyfriend and I spent 3 weeks in La Jolla since we were attending english classes in dowtown.

    We stayed all 3 weeks at ESTANCIA LA JOLLA where we found beautiful room, very confortable mattresses and pillows! The Estancia is classy, very clean with a very nice, lush garden and the staff is friendly and is always available to help you in the best possible way. We highly reccomend the ESTANCIA for a quite vacation, far from the crowded village center. You can also enjoy the SPA and the JACUZZI till late in the night.

    If one day in our life we return to S.DIEGO, We will definitely be returning to Estancia La Jolla

    Still working out the kinks


    Stayed at this brand new property the weekend of July 31-August 1. The room was beautiful -- exceptionally nice decor, very quiet and one of the most comfortable mattresses ever found in a hotel (of course, it was brand new which helps). However, being such a new hotel, there were a few "kinks" that still needed to be worked out -- a lamp in the bedroom didn't work, the telephone had every light flashing all night long (with no messages or any reason for the lights to be flashing), very harried front desk personnel who seemed to take forever to check us in, several inquiries about a key to the in-room minibar were ignored, so we ended up not having access to the minibar (which was OK because the contents were extremely expensive, even for a hotel mini-bar). After arranging for a late check out (only 45 minutes later than the noon time) we found ourselves locked out of the room (electronic card key had been voided at noon) and had to make a long trek to the front desk to get it reprogrammed. Concierge service doesn't exist -- in fact, when obtaining driving directions from someone at the front desk, the information was so terribly wrong that we drove about 20 minutes out of our way, only to later discover that our destination was about 4 blocks away.

    Estancia is a Winner!


    My family and I spent a weekend in La Jolla during one of the busiest weekends of the summer. Almost all of the hotels were sold out except for the Estancia La Jolla. It has only been opened for 3 weeks so I don't think people know about it yet . But soon it will be one of those hard to book hotels .
