Pretty hotel with character

Posted Dec 10, 2017
Walls of rooms are super thin. Can hear the guests next door even when talking in normal tone. Restaurant was very good but understaffed and super slow. Cute place though.

Enjoyed returning again

Posted Nov 1, 2017
Pros: Quiet and restful layout. [The two boxes below will not accept additional comments. Sorry but I shall not waste my time with inadequate software]
Cons: Housekeeping staff did not make up our room within what I considered a reasonable time. We were out of our room 4+ hours on a low traffic day.
Location: Completing above: When we returned, the room was not made up. Additionally, surely we were entitled to 2 soaps and tubes of body lotion rather than
Disappointed in dining options. Facilities were reduced from prior visits so we were confronted with eating Mexican cuisine. We did not, and you lost revenue. Housekeeping was lesss than expected (see below).

Nice & noisy hotel

Grounds are lovely but it's a wedding mill. Wouldn't recommend unless you are in/going to one.

Great spot to stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Estancia. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We especially liked the pool area and restaurants on site. Staff was professional and friendly. The hotel is conveniently located close to LaJolla and San Diego.

Beautiful scenery

I visited this resort hotel due to a family wedding that was held at this location. It truly is an exquisite resort that I highly recommend. It's pricey, but it's worth it.

Bait and switch

Posted Sep 4, 2017 on Orbitz
Booked at the Estancia through Orbitz. Three minutes from Estancia was notified they were over booked and had rebooked me at the Hyatt near Sea World. With all the kids. Not acceptable.

Thank you for your review. Please accept our apologies for the frustration you experienced due to Orbitz’s oversight; it is a rare occurrence we wholeheartedly regret and we too are disappointed you were unable to be our guest. We hope you still enjoyed your time in San Diego and that we have an opportunity to host you as our guest in the future.

Water in bathroom basin was not draining properly. Complained twice - to housekeeping as well as front desk. No action was taken. Disappointed.
