Hotel Overview


The La Jolla district of San Diego, in the south of California.

Rooms at La Valencia

La Valencia has 112 rooms, suites and villas, decked out in warm golden and cream hues with wood furnishings and Mediterranean influences. Some of the guestrooms are in the original 1926 house and have views across the gardens, the village or La Jolla Cove, some with a Jacuzzi and a small balcony. Most of the suites have ocean views and some have balconies and Jacuzzis, and the newly-built Ocean Villas are all facing the ocean, with marble floors, beamed ceilings, private patios, Jacuzzis, and most have fireplaces too.

Food & Facilities

It seems needless to say that the Mediterranean Room serves Mediterranean cuisine, but the views are the surprising part, overlooking La Jolla Cove. There is an indoor dining room, a patio area and a terrace, which perches above the ocean. La Sala, the lounge and cocktail bar, sits above La Jolla Cove and affords excellent panoramic views across the Pacific Ocean. You can also dine in your room or villa, a service available 24-hours-a-day. The swimming pool has an ocean backdrop and for those in need of some intensive unwinding, spa treatments are delivered in your suite.

Activities at La Valencia

La Jolla is the perfect beach retreat, with the great surf for which San Diego and Orange County is famed. The two-mile beach at La Jolla is one of the best in California and perfect for whatever you fancy – be that relaxation or an action-packed holiday. You can kayak in the ocean, sail, simply stroll down the beach and around pretty La Jolla and of course you can surf! Relax by the pool and take advantage of the spa treatments on offer at La Valencia, or get out and about in San Diego, at the San Diego Zoo or SeaWorld, or head down to the historic Gaslamp Quarter.
