Recently had my home fumigated and decided to just get away and stay at the Terranea for two nights. Such a relaxing experience, with the staff very friendly and accommodating, the beautiful views of the beach and the gorgeous sunsets, and the lovely grounds, along with trails that you can use to walk around the property. Even though I was... More

Our first night in LA area was spent here and we can't wait to return! After a six hour flight from the East Coast we were greeted with champagne and a staff that couldn't be more hospitable. We awakened early (still on east coast time) and ventured out in luxurious bath robes to the jacuzzi over looking the pacific. Dinner... More

We can't say enough about the elegant and relaxing atmosphere at Terranea... every aspect of our trip was wonderful... the staff, the room, the resort, the beach, the food... simply everything! The resort is luxurious, but not pretentious. Every amenity is of the highest quality. We highly recommend Terranea to everyone, and definitely plan to visit again soon!

We live 5 or so miles down the way, but we LOVE coming here. We always feel like we've traveled miles and arrived at some exotic place. The service is exceptional and the views are so relaxing. You can spend time people watching or slip to a secluded place and meditate. The lobby bar is decadent at night, soothing, rich,... More

Recently stayed at Terranea. The grounds are breathtaking. I especially loved the secluded cove.We sat on rocks and watched dolohins, seals and birds. The most beautful sunset I have ever seen off the cliffs of Palas Verdes. We had an ocean front room which was nice, the bathroom was the best feature in the room but the door slammed shut... More

I am a person of few words, but I wanted to take a moment to recognize the outstanding job this resort did to make my wife and my experience a great one. From time of check to check out and everything in between we felt special. Check in was friendly, the room was spotless, the onsite rest.'s were outstanding and... More

Beautiful resort on the tip of the Palos Verdes peninsula. We stayed in a one bedroom casita with a fully equiped kitchen, laundry room, bath with shower and tub, living room and bedroom. The unit was furnished very well. The grounds of the property are spectacular with a walking trail on the cliff next to the ocean. The fitness center... More

My fiance surprised me to a hotel stay at Terranea Resort, we stayed at one of the casitas. The view was spectacular. Inside the hotel, was amazing. I felt like I was staying at a model home or a vacation home. I didn't want to leave because I really felt homey. The rooms were separated, it has a living room,... More

We have stayed at Terranea twice. Our introduction to the resort was a corporate event, and we liked it so much we returned on our own. We stayed as a couple, and I later recommended Terranea to friends traveling with their entire family who said they had a wonderful stay. Terranea is a full service resort located on a bluff... More
