The 10-acre property is well-kept and beautiful to explore
Property is removed from central San Diego
The Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa can easily be judged by its cover: The hacienda-style property sits on 10 acres of well-manicured gardens. The hotel's 210 rooms keep up luxury appearances, boasting Turkish cotton linens and Smart TVs as well as private furnished balconies in some. Recent travelers describe this La Jolla hotel as "stunning" and praised the in-house spa for its long list of treatments and additional facilities, such as the Eucalyptus steam room and the outdoor saltwater whirlpool. Mustangs & Burros treats diners to savory Southwestern cuisine, and the Trinitas Cellars Wine Bar makes a great spot for an evening drink. However, the hotel is a 15-mile drive northwest of downtown San Diego, so it may not be the best choice for sightseers.

Travel + Leisure


Located in a private enclave between La Jolla Shores and Torrey Pines State Park, the hacienda-style architecture and meticulously manicured gardens of Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa pay homage to San Diego's Rancho-California roots.

Condé Nast Traveler


If Estancia La Jolla has an outstanding feature, it's the grounds: Beautifully tended lawns, lemon trees, native plants, fountains and flowers surround Spanish-Colonial-style buildings
