I attended a conference at Terranea. The resort is a long and expensive ride from the two nearby airports. Once you reach the property, it's clear that it's a carefully planned development, with residences in addition to the hotel. The views were fabulous, and many of our meetings were held outside or within view of the scenery, and that gave... More

As for the positives: The Terranea Resort is on a beautiful piece of land. The views are stunning, and simply perfect. Who can possibly complain about ocean/island cliff views. The grounds are expansive. There are multiple places to eat and hang out. There are 3 pools that vary by atmosphere. It is very kid friendly. The rooms are nice and... More

The location of this resort is fantastic, the views across the ocean are phenomenal and we saw a 200 strong pod of dolphins morning and evening from our balcony. We also saw baby rabbits, a sea lion and hummingbirds whilst walking around the grounds. The room was nice, little bit shabby in some places, it is showing signs of age.... More

We stayed from sunday night to Friday midday. those seem like the best times as I think weekends and holiday weekends would be overwhelmingly hectic. The hotel is very nice and the rooms are comfortable. The bathtub was very large and the room was medium size. The 2 beds are not big enough for 2 full size adults to share,but... More

Terranea's grounds and views are absolutely stunning. The hotel also has great pool areas for both families and (separately) people not traveling with children. We booked a casita and considering the price point we were expecting much more luxurious accommodations. The hotel and casitas themselves are pretty standard; what you're truly paying for is the location. The service is lacking... More

We love this hotel. The views, the location, the two swimming pools, the spa, the golf course are all top notch. The restaurants are all good. Hotel guests as well as locals frequent the restaurants, so it makes for a warm energy of people. The staff is great, very helpful and kind. It is obvious that Terrenea takes staff training... More

We stayed at Terranea for just over a week beginning of July. When we arrived, they had already upgraded us to ocean view. Very nice and thank you! All the facilities are nice. We ate at all the restaurants. Best one was Bashi with Catalina kitchen close to first place. Marsel is nice for a romantic evening or to celebrate... More

Terranea should be a world-class resort. The beautiful setting, the high-quality food, and the excellent facilities (including access to a great tennis club 5 minutes from the resort) should make for a 5-star resort. However, Terranea will not be in that category until it brings its service up to a 5-star standard. On our recent 4-night stay, we experienced multiple... More

When I finally made the trip to Terranea Resort with my Sister and Mom, it had been on my mind for quite a while already. It is the only resort in the L.A. area right on the water in such an isolated location--kind of reminiscent of staying at a resort in Hawaii or the Caribbean except that you're about 20... More

Honestly the reason I am giving this hotel 5 stars is because of a few staff members. The one that made our trip stand out was Chris Caldwell. He went over and beyond to make sure that the 23 of us had the most memorable 3 day vacation. When he was not around his staff members Mike Austin and Trevor... More
