While I've had the pleasure of staying at Terranea twice. It's been pure business which brought me there. Nonetheless, it is a beautiful resort with excellent rooms, great food, and nice amenities. All this not to mention an exquisite location with 180 degree ocean views. I recommend the resort for short indulgent getaways, business meetings, or any other time you... More

We were here for a conference...the checking in process lovely with a welcoming glass of champagne...staff always cheerful...my complaint is that I am spending 500+ $$ a night and yet the carpet in my suite is filthy...it looks like a frat house...even the furniture is stained...meals are good but very pricey...the entire resort needs some TLC

Having stayed in many beach resorts up and down the California coast, I feel nothing compares to Terranea. The service, rooms, amenities, restaurants, pools, hiking trails are second to none. The spa is great and if you want to get away from the large pool, you can relax by the spa pool. The views from every room are spectacular. You... More

I spent 3 days at a conference at this property and was very impressed. It was hard to believe that is is less than 45 minutes from LAX. The beach views and sunsets were spectacular, and the food and service was impeccable. TIP: It feels like you are far from everything, but grocery stores and shopping are actually just a... More

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
