Great hotel, great view, great staff, great and great all around, BUT clientele are an odd mix of unfriendly, rude, and self entitled folks. Of course, the hotel has no control over that, so consider this a heads up of the type of crowd one might find there. Oh, and make sure you bring cash because there is only one... More

Beautiful property, hope to return someday. Came here with family for three nights. Nice pool and water slide, but there might be better resorts for kids. My six year old had a good time, but his parents had a great time!! He was less impressed by spectacular view, very helpful service and huge bathroom than his parents, but he got... More

So... Read incredible reviews and were so excited, then we got here... First of all, the property is beautiful. Out of the hundreds of staff people on property, we have encountered 2 helpful people. Thank you Kevin from concierge and Jillian at the lobby bar. So, we got to the Terranea at 11:00am and were told we have to wait... More

Terranea is a beautiful compound, out on the Rancho Palos Verdes pint, southwest of Los Angeles. If you are local, know that it feels like getting away to tropical and remote island... If you are considering Terranea as a conference or vacation site you cannot lose. It is tropical, beautiful and away from the Big city! The spa services are... More

We were here for two nights. The dinner buffet at one of their restaurants with unlimited king crab was amazing, but quite expensive (what do you expect, right?). The location, and the resort are both very beautiful. We had a very comfortable stay. We were there for a wedding, and it was a very good venue for it. The room... More
