Just got back from a business conference held at Terranea. I've been out to Palos Verdes for a wedding a few years back, but didn't remember what a beautiful isolated place this is. If you want to "get away", this is the place to go. I live in Los Angeles mid-City and it took less than an hour on a... More

We stayed at Terranea in August for 2 nights for my husband's birthday. We have 3 kids ages, 7, 5 and 1. This is an excellent family resort right here in SoCal. The rooms (we had Oceanview adjoining) were very nice. My only complaint would be the view was not as great as I would have expected. Yes, we could... More

This is a friendly classy place. The customer service at this hotel/resort is exceptional. Everyone from the valet to the bellman greet you with a good morning. All of their food venues are very good. Nelson's is a casual dining area which is right on the cliff about the Pacific Ocean. Its filled with Llyod Bridges memorabilia from the Sea... More

From check in to check out everything was well done. This is a top flight property run by a top flight staff. I don't mind paying top dollar for quality and service when it's this well done.

My stay was part of a business seminar so I hadn't chosen the venue myself, but I was thrilled that the organisors had. The facilities are superb, the rooms, the restaurants, the pools, the spa, the grounds, everything. I particularly enjoyed the adults only pool where you can swim and relax withoput the kids playing nearby. The local area is... More

We decided to spend one night at Terranea after we were invited to a kids birthday party at the Terranea pool. The place is beautiful, elegant, classy and yet, still welcoming for families with kids. We stayed in a casita room and we couldn't have asked for a more private and quiet place to relax after a long day at... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Terranea Resort for 2 nights in October 2010. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. It's on the water (with a small beach), but one of the best features of it is, you can watch the sun rise and set on the water. The hotel has your choice of places to stay: rooms, suites,... More

Stayed here for a wedding and wow, what a place. It's 5 star in my opinion. Excellent restaurants, Sea Beans is a wonderful little place and great rooms. My only minor complaint was we had booked a 3 bedroom casita but it was really 2 'hotel room' type rooms and a 'condo' type room and only 1 of the 'hotel... More

Terranea is on the site where Marineland stood for many years. The resort was built to maintain the serenity and beauty of the location. 50year-old pines were saved and replanted to add to the charm of this incredible resort. There is something for everyone, even an art gallery! The service, food, grounds,rooms, pools and views are worth every cent I... More
