My wife and I are just leaving LAX after an 8 day vacation in the greater LA area. we stayed at the Terranea Resort. While the overall venue is impressive, it falls well short of Five Star from a service point of view. Here are some thoughts.... the location itself, while not too many miles from LA, it is quite...

Spent a week at this beautiful resort, and enjoyed the amazing views in a wonderful room. You simply can't beat the ocean views, the walking trails, and extremely friendly staff. I was in a private villa, and it was extraordinary. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone.

I very rarely write online reviews, either good or bad, but Terranea is such an odd and inconsistent combination of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly that it deserves a thorough review. First, the Good. Terranea is blessed with truly spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. The setting and views are absolutely breathtaking. The grounds and resort buildings are... More

Welcome to paradise! The resort overlooks the coast cliffs and Pacific Ocean. Nothing more beautiful than walking out on your balcony and staring at paradise. Amazing pool and restaurants/bars overlooking the ocean, awesome resort nightlife; I could go on and on and on. Even the complimentary bath products make you swoon! Awesome choice for leisure, business, parties, weddings, and everything... More

My wife and I were there for 3 days. The Casitas are essentially vacation condos that can be booked through Terranea. The main room has a stocked kitchen, refrigerator/freezer, stacked washer/dryer, etc. There are two other bedrooms that can be connected to the main room. Most of this information you can find at their website..http://www.terranea.com/palos-verdes-vacation-rentals The maid service was excellent.... More

Overall a great spring break destination for our family. We had a villa which was perfect. The only downside was having to call for a golf cart to get around the resort. We eventually started walking even with our 2 year old. The food at all restaurants was excellent. The main reason I don't give this a four star rating... More

Stayed here for a business conference. The staff was very helpful and the property is gorgeous. Built on the old Marineland location, we saw dolphins and whales right from resort. Parking is not included ($35/night), which is annoying at a 5 star property that has no other way to get there. Rooms are very spacious. Lots of areas to sit... More

Wonderful oceanfront location. Plenty of dining options. Terrific spa and the best recreational hiking you will experience at the ocean. Magical sunsets. Do yourself a favor and unwind for a couple of days.....worth every penny.

Terranea is an absolutely beautiful place. The grounds, cliffs, walking trails, pool areas and all other common areas are spectacular. The report looks out over the Pacific and toward Catalina Island. We staying in a "Casita" which was very nicely appointed. The room was spotless. The bathroom featured a nice shower, tall vanity, separate WC and a deep soaker tub.... More
