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

I feel like I need to preface this review a bit since I was staying here on business...my frame of reference for value/price paid is a bit off because the company was picking up the tab. In fact I feel like I experienced Terranea the optimal way: didn't have my own car (so avoided the long valet lines), company was... More

I echo what other reviewers have stated... simply, for the price being charged (5 star pricing), the resort only delivers 3 stars. So many issues: 1) The rooms, outside of the private Casitas, are NOISY. You hear the doors slam next to you. Worse, you hear the shower and toilet stall doors slam. The noise from outside if you are... More

My husband and I stayed here last week for four nights. The setting was spectacular. It was a company meeting and the food and service was top notch. We had off sight activities and the hotel did a great job of transporting us also. My husband asked them to run him to the store for snacks and they willing accommodated... More

Let me preface this review by saying that having lived in Asia for 20+ years I have been to my share of incredible beach/seaside resorts so I am fussy. Also I grew up in the area so I have mixed feelings about this resort: once upon a time if was the beloved and peaceful Marineland I grew up with and... More

Just returned from a few days stay at this resort for one of my work events. The resort itself is nice, but it is not amazing for a return stay. We had one of the Casita rooms which is in a smaller and more private areas. The room had a nice ocean view and pretty quiet. However, the amenities just... More

This place is pretty nice and we had a great time. We just can't get over the cost and that's what kills their rating. Take away a star and $200 off the room cost and I'd give it a glowing review. But if you're gonna pay this amount for a get-a-way, your money's better spent at a Four Seasons or... More
