My family and I stayed at the Terranea Resort for 1 week. The property was beautiful! We got a room with an ocean view and every morning we could step out into patio to enjoy the sight and the fresh air. The rooms were very nice and the staff was always helpful. I was also very pleased with the restaurants... More

Fantastic 4 night visit with our 3 children at Terranea. We stayed in a 2 bedroom casita with stunning views that was luxurious and well appointed. We have no complaints. The resort is well run, clearly customer service comes first and foremost. the grounds, restaurants, and pools all were fantastic. beautiful location away from the fray of LA, but close... More

The Terranea property is beautiful and well developed. The location, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, is stellar and surprisingly close to LA. Walking trails ring the resort along the ocean and are absolutely the best feature of the resort! During our stay we saw seals, porpoises (or dolphins) whales and sea birds. We visited the beach and walked the... More

We are a family of four, with 2 teenage daughters. We all loved this resort! We only stayed one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Our oceanview room was beautiful and view was breath-taking. We enjoyed hiking, and roaming around the property. Lunch at Nelson's was really good - and again the view is incredible. Our check-in was... More

This was my first time at Terranea and I was there for a 3 day business meeting. The rooms, pools, food and service were wonderful. The view of the Southern CA coast is amazing and there are many places to enjoy it, such as walking trails, pool, restaurants. I would love to return again for a relaxing trip! Our group... More

Stayed here recently with family for a weekend. Location is undeniably good and facilities are reasonable for a resort. Rooms (we had a bungalow) were well laid out and comfortable beds. Huge drawback was that in spite of there being 5 on resort restaurants we could not get a meal on site all weekend. You have to book everything before... More

Dear Dougie, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your recent visit. While we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your bungalow, we are disappointed to hear that you had a negative experience with restaurant reservations. While weekends can get busy with both resort and local guests, we do give our resort guests priority... More

We were upgraded to a first floor bungalow, which was wonderful. The room was beautiful and the view was stunning. There was lots of foot traffic, though, and we could hear every step the people on the second floor made. : ( I think a second floor bungalow room would be perfect for couples! Great location, more private, and a... More

I booked an ocean view room and the booking detailed that we were a couple travelling with our 15 year old daughter. However when we arrived we were told that no ocean view rooms could accommodate a rollaway bed - we were put in a room that overlooked the construction of a swimming pool and its' accompanying noise. I find... More

We have been wanting to try this place for a while because it is closer than Pelican Hill where we normally go, and to add variety. So off we went with two kiddos, to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary this past weekend. First the GOOD: 1. close to LA (cannot beat the FastTrak on 110!) 2. beautiful grounds 3. spacious...
