Our daughter's wedding was just last Friday but I couldn't wait to write a review. Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa far exceeded our expectations!! Brenna Myers is the Catering Manager and from the very beginning of our dealings with her she quickly responded to all requests and emails. Brenna was a joy to work with!! From finding a date to flexing with our needs and desires, Brenna went the extra mile to make things happen.
Every detail of our celebration received attention from every member of the catering staff. The hotel staff was equally exceptional-from front desk, to bellmen and pool servers. Everyone's demeanor was pleasant and kind. This was very important to my husband and myself since we had many guests staying at the hotel.
AND I can't say enough about the quality of the food at the reception. My brother was the Pastor for the ceremony and has done 100's of weddings. He told me it was the best wedding food he had ever had and I'd have to agree. The appetizers as well as entrees were hot and magnificent. This was a very pleasant surprise since I had been at so many weddings where the event space was lovely but the food was cold and bad. Servers were very attentive and bartenders were professional.
I really am grateful for Estancia's attention to detail and great customer service. This wedding was what my daughter called "the best night of my life." Thank you Estancia, it was in no small part because of you.

Imagine this: You're driving up a gorgeous green drive way to the valet, you take a deep breath and feeling of a calmness and relaxation come over you. That's what it is like to come to Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa.

After physically visiting 49 venues - yes, I typed that correctly 49 venues - Estancia was going to be my LAST tour, no matter what it was like, I was going to choose between the 50 venues I went to.

When my mother and I drove up the very first time, it was amazing. We were greeted by courteous Valet, lush green landscape, and a beautiful fountain. Within 10 minutes of being on the property my mother and I looked at each other and said this was it - deposit down, contract signed, DONE!

Once our contract was signed, I was introduced to the amazing, talented, and professional Brenna. Brenna helped us every step of the way with whatever crazy, insane, questions/ requests I had. Brenna of course was introduced as the Catering Manager, but by the end of my wedding, Brenna truly became my confidant, supporter, and friend. There were many emails I send to Brenna in a tizzy over the drama that was going on, she was able to support me and give me some compromising solutions to make things a little easier! Brenna really is the heart and soul of Estancia and the reason my wedding went off smoothly!
Fast Forward to the Tasting:
#1- The food here for a wedding is FANTASTIC! I've been to plenty of weddings and know that it's really difficult to mass produce food for lots of people at one time. Normally something doesn't taste the same as it did in the tasting. Well, I'll tell you PEOPLE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THE FOOD - 4 MONTHS LATER! The beef short rib and salmon are delicious and the lamb pops we had as appetizers were the crowd favorite! (I'm told there was a line at the kitchen door waiting for them to come out!).
The grounds speak for themselves - it's just amazing and the absolutely perfect place to have a weekend wedding.

We received nothing but the best of everything from the Estancia. Brenna, the valet guys, the front desk, service staff during lunch, Felipe at Mustang & Burros, everyone we met at the hotel was super professional and friendly. We had our ceremony and lunch on the Olive Lawn, which affords an intimate, private setting surrounded by the beautiful plantings and buildings. This place has a total "Santa Barbara/Montecito" ambiance tucked away across from UCSD. Like another reviewer, Ray, Sean, and the other guys on the valet team work their butts off and set the great tone for everything else at the Estancia! J&E

I loved getting married at Estancia! Even though my wedding weekend was packed with other weddings, we never got the feeling that we were just one more wedding. The service was attentive and caring, and the spaces are gorgeous! Estancia was very flexible with our requests and in the end, I had the perfect day! Brenna was especially great and so helpful throughout the planning. We look forward to celebrating anniversaries at this beautiful venue!

Service is what sets Estancia apart from others. And by service, its not just the staff working the wedding (although Brenna Myers was absolutely outstanding!!), but everyone at the entire hotel. The valet are very attentive and always offer up a bottle of water. The front desk reception workers are uber friendly. Even the grounds crew and maid service would greet you with a smile.

As for our wedding, we had quite a production. 170 guests with ceremony onsite out on the main lawn, and reception in the large ballroom. We chose the venue after looking at 8 other San Diego/La Jolla locations. It stood out for its beauty and service. The ceremony felt like we were in some magical garden. The ballroom was beautifully decorated. And the staff as mentioned above went above and beyond. All of our guests were thoroughly impressed and entertained. They also loved the hotel and said just walking through the doors brought about a sense of calmness and relaxation.

My only slight knock is on value. We knew the place was going to be on the pricey side and that was fine. It was well worth it. I also know that there is an annoying wedding surcharge with every site/vendor. It got to the point where I thought of not telling vendors it was for a wedding because it felt like everyone added 10-20% to their normal rates. Its just that there were some charges that I thought should have been included with our package rather than added as an extra fee. Some examples include uplighting for the ballroom ($600+), copper chargers for each seat ($3.00 per setting), kids meals (chicken fingers and fries) that cost $45 when you include the tax and 22% service. Fortunately I was able to get them to include the cost of kids beverages instead of having to pay an additional $30 per child for those!

All that said, Estancia was worth the price and the value is good and I would definitely recommend as a great venue. Thanks for making the entire weekend so special!

We had a lovely, serene wedding at Estancia and will always be grateful for the charming setting and terrific service.

We chose the venue based on the beautiful landscaping and intimate feel. We were thrilled to work with Adrienne Almario, who managed the event perfectly and is a tremendous resource for event styling and logistics. Adrienne is extremely professional, responsive, and thoughtful, and she answered our many questions patiently and thoroughly. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of event coordination and catering and addressed all the details of our wedding perfectly. Adrienne is a lovely person and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Estancia created a wonderful event and made our wedding party and guests feel at home. We used three locations for our 40-person wedding: the Olive Lawn for the ceremony, the Caretakers Lawn for the cocktail reception, and the Hacienda Lawn for dinner. The catering staff transitioned from one location to another seamlessly, and they were all gracious, conscientious, and attentive. Miguel led the catering team and made the team’s hard work look effortless. The entire catering team was terrific. We are especially fond of Lydia, who served us at our tasting and at our wedding. She was a friendly, warm, and familiar face during our event.

The food was delicious and well prepared, and the bartenders did a terrific job creating a signature cocktail for us. We have eaten dinner twice at Estancia’s Mustang & Burros and breakfast once at Estancia’s Adobe El Restaurante, and we had great meals all three times.

We stayed at Estancia on our wedding night. The room was lovely and well appointed.

We want to give a special shout-out to the valet team, who are some of the friendliest and most personable guys around!

Estancia La Jolla was a dream wedding venue come true for me. It is rather expensive which is why I gave three stars for value and we had to have a day time wedding in order to be able to afford it, but in the end, it was worth every penny. Our honeymoon suite was beautiful! Many of our guests said the venue was beautiful. We were married on the Olive lawn, and it was just perfect.
