From the moment we arrived, everything was first class. We were checked in promptly and served 2 glasses of champagne. The grounds and pools are beautiful .There are walking path on the coast. The food at the restaurants was fantastic. The only suggestion I have is that the adults only pool should be open in summer later. It closed by... More

Went on a family vacation to California, per a suggestion from my brother who actually lives in Palos Verdes, I can see why he loves it there! The area is beautiful and breathtaking! It reminds me of Maui, driving the coast and the Pacific Ocean is our companion! The resort is beautiful and staff very friendly, we had some issues... More

My children and I stayed on the 3rd floor in a double bed standard room with an ocean view! The view was fabulous and if there isn't any fog you can see Catalina Island in the distance. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and the bride and groom were stunning. Several weddings occurred while we were staying at the hotel and... More

Terranea is a place of contrasts. It started out as one of the best resorts in California. A beautiful site, overlooking the cliffs of Palos Verdes, with a range of restaurants, activities, and beautiful vistas. The beautiful vistas remain. The restaurants are okay, although overpriced, with food that has slumped toward the generic. And the amenities have become silly exhibitions... More

First of all, it's very expensive and I believe deceptively so. Parking is $35, wether you valet or not, there's a $25 daily resort fee for the in-room coffee and transport golf carts, in room bottled water is $6. Each of the 3 attendants said my name wrong upon arrival. No one passed information to the next. The valet asked... More

Spent two nights in a luxurious casita in August. Terranea is a family-friendly (and family oriented) resort that feels many more miles away from LA than it really is. The location on the bluff overlooking the Pacific is dramatic and breathtaking. While the resort itself has everything one needs in terms of amenities, the real star is the property, its... More

Terranea is a hidden gem in Southern California. The vast amount of things to do on the property can keep you busy all weekend long. I enjoyed watching the sunsets from our room, dining at Nelson's, and making s'mores in the many fire pits available. We felt like we went to Hawaii, without the hassle of getting on an airplane....

I was fortunate to be invited to visit the Terranea Resort for a work-related event, and had no idea what a treat it would be. I am already online looking for a time when I can bring my husband back with me! When I arrived I was greeted warmly by the staff, and offered a glass of champagne at the... More

I contacted this hotel to surprise my parents with a nice bottle of champagne in their room (since this was their first long-distance trip away after raising six children). After being transferred three times and put on hold too many times to count, the final person who attempted to assist me hung up on me while putting me on hold... More

I booked an overnight stay at Terranea for my birthday. Even though I live locally it was my first visit here. Simply stunning! I highly recommend this hotel for any occasion, the service and quality of the property are top notch. There's something here for everyone, from a kids only pool to an adults only pool, to a cell phone... More
