My husband and I stumbled upon this place (friends who live in Palos Verdes told us about this resort) and decided to spend a night there last weekend. Overall, we were very pleased with the resort and are very glad we were introduced. Pros: 1) The location is unmatched -- the resort sits right on the cliff next to the... More

A little out of the way, but the Terranea is located in a beautiful spot with gorgeous views. The property is huge with several swimming pools and restaurants. There is also a very nice spa at the resort as well. Service was excellent - we checked in during the later afternoon and were treated to a glass of champagne! The... More

1. Reservations. We wanted to visit LA to see my 97-year old mother, and needed a specific sort of accommodation: two interconnecting rooms in a hotel. Mother walks with a walker and has limited mobility. We made this abundantly clear to Terranea when we made the reservation on September 27, 2014,and again before flying out to LA, we called Terranea,... More

Breathtaking views of the Palos Verdes peninsula , adult friendly resort with good restaurants, a great gym and spa facility, and friendly staff. Rooms are clean, bright and roomy. The only issues I had with the place is the chaotic traffic in the resort roundabout (badly organized) and that unless you want to be unplugged completely from the rest of... More

The resort is strategically located atop the oceanfront cliffs on the Pacific on the Rancho Palos Verdes penninsula. Staff are courteous and pleasant, and the friendliness and efficiency of the car valet service staff deserve special mention. I suggest that persons driving up there for the first time get directions - driving down the Pacific Coast Hwy from LA Airport... More

Spectacular ocean views greet you from this large scale , 5 star, tropical feeling resort perched high on a cliff above one of the most scenic spots in Southern California. Palos Verdes peninsula is a tad off the beaten path , just west of Los Angeles...more of a neighborhood than a city, a nature lover's paradise. I grew up in... More

While this property is gorgeous in every way, beginning with fabulous ocean front location, I think my most exciting times were in the morning, about 7:30-8:00 when the falcons and hawks "worked" keeping the seagulls at bay. We could watch from our balcony and take pictures. The gentleman that "worked" the birds was very knowledgeable and generous with him time... More

Located in Palos Verdes Peninsula just less than one hour drive from Los Angeles International Airport we just got in love with this resort. A huge territory gives you a lot of possibilities to walk and glance on Pacific ocean. You can see dolphins and pelicans. It is a great place for those who like active life. There is a... More

We just stayed at Terranea this past Thurs through Sunday, and had a wonderful time. Not our first time here, but our third time. Everything is so nice, regardless if you stay in the hotel or bungalow, or casitas, they are all great!! The grounds are gorgeous, the food delicious, the service very good, the 9 hole golf course is... More
