Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa
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 pays homage to San Diego's Rancho-California roots. Rooms here are bright and spacious—the Estate and Presidential suites even come with their own private patios. If you're here when the weather is a bit chillier, take advantage of the heated saltwater pool: take a dip, and then warm up next to one of many outdoor fire pits. If you've got the time, head to Estancia's award-winning spa for a Sea Stone massage or a 50-minute organic aloe wrap. And don't skip a meal at Mustangs & Burros, the on-site restaurant that serves creative Californian cuisine like blackened-salmon tacos and cumin-crusted skirt steak.
