I would espiecially like to coment on a gentlemen by the name of Justin, I ordered room service a few times and regardless of the time of day it was, he was exceptional! It is not often that a person could obtain customer service of this quality. I recommend you give him praise for his great work!!

This is the third year we have stayed at Terranea. We were there the summer of the first year when they had recently opened and didn't have all the kinks worked out. This year was fabulous. The food at the restaurants we ate at: Catalina Kitchen (breakfast and dinner); Nelson's (lunch); and the Spa Cafe (lunch) was all top notch.... More

We were greeted with champagne, which is always nice. It was over the 4th of July weekend so the place was packed. We were given a room on the busy lobby level overlooking the pool. We waited 40 minutes to get our luggage delivered to our room. The room was mediocre, large enough but with basic furnishings and poor planning... More

The pool areas all have ocean views and there's one for everyone's taste from family friendly, adults only and a very restful spa pool.Though the golf course is only a nine par it's challenging and...

Stayed here with some friends and it was SO overcrowded. There were people everywhere you turned. I felt like I was in a human zoo. The property itself is very nice, with superb views of the ocean. It also has great facilities, with a beautiful spa and 3 pools to choose from. The service of the hotel was terrible. I... More
