We only went to Terranea for lunch at their cafe on the point however look forward to the opportunity to stay there one time on our way through LA. The cafe is fantastic and sits at the bottom of the resorts gardens on the point overlooking the ocean. We watched Dolphins, Whales, Seals and birds whilst eating lunch. The food... More

The Terranea Resort lives up to its 5 star rating. A beautiful, well maintained and well run resort. The restaurant (Catalina Kitchen and Nelsons) food was very good. Our 2 night mid week stay met our high expectations.

I spent three days at Terranea at a business conference, and can't wait to come back with my family. I stayed in one of the casitas, very spacious and well appointed, lovely views of the ocean from my lower floor patio. The patio itself is relatively private and I spent both mornings out there sipping coffee and reading the news.... More

My wife and I love the ocean and decided to explore the relatively-new Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, about an hour's drive from our home in La Verne. From the minute I booked our room on-line until we departed this morning, I have never experienced better customer service from any hotel, restaurant, golf course or any other entity.... More

I'm from LA so to visit a hotel that's close to the city but so distant in terms of natural beauty and calm was really astonishing. The resort sits on cliffs overlooking the Pacific. Just about the most beautiful real estate you can imagine. There are numerous hikes and trails that take you up, down, and around the property. In... More

The locale can't be beat. It is a bit off all other attractions but if you are looking to fully relax, play golf, lounge by the pool, get out to fish... then this is a good place. Not sure it is ideal for families as it lacked in variety in my opinion. The rooms are quite spacious and very inviting.... More

The physical property is beautiful ... but the service is significantly lacking. I arrived late on a Saturday evening and waited quite a while at registration, waited quite awhile for a shuttle to take me to my cabana, waited quite a while for room service to be delivered ... you get the idea. I was at the hotel for four... More

Along with 280 other family members and friends who came from different continents throughout the world we celebrated my brother's wedding at the beautiful Terranea on September 15,2012. Over half of us decided to make it a weekend getaway and we all lodged at the Terranea. The Terranea is top notch and I would rate it 10 stars if I... More

Breathtaking views. Sunset view at Nelson's is awesome. Food at Mar'sel was divine. SPa services are pricey, but free fitness classes at the Fitness center (Yoga and Latin dance) were fun. Sea Beans was great for a sandwiches, baked goods, coffee, and some souvenirs. Conceirge helped me arrange a day trip to Catalina Island that was great. Walked the trail... More
