With business, the shows I attend are often in the top resorts in the country. This was by far my favorite resort so far. It was beautiful, but relaxed. Many resorts I go to I feel uncomfortable, like if I sit down I am going to mess it up. They have great common areas inside and out that lead to nice conversation with nice views. It has a great low-key vibe to it. You are encourage to walk on the trails and the staff was very friendly. The views are spectacular and in a few moments you can get caught up in the beauty. I am a Florida girl, so the cliffs with the Pacific are quite different from my beach landscape. The grounds were lovely. They have a walking par 3 course that was very well maintained. The room was very spacious. I really want to go back.

Room Tip: My room was a 4000 room so I did not have to get on the elevator. I had a balcony and it did overlo...

Lovely resort just outside Los Angeles with sweeping views of coastline from it's perch on the Palos Verdes peninsula. Room was very spacious with a very comfortable bed, large bathroom with big tub and separate shower. Excellent pool, many walking trails and a super spa. Definitely would recommend for 2-3 night stay.

Great option for quick getaway out of LA craziness. They always have deals, especially if you go off-season. You can get a great room, beautiful ocean view, restaurants are good, if you're into golf, they got that too. In the summer they got a water-slide to keep kids occupied, but also a great trip for adults only. Not sure if I'd recommend it to out-of-towners who are only here for a short time as it is a bit far from LA proper, but if you're local or here in SoCal for an extended trip, it is highly recommended.

The view from our bedroom of the Pacific I could never tire of looking at.
The staff, the facilities, the spa, the restaurants are all first rate.
The wines on the menu are excellent as well, unfamiliar names, but absolutely superb, and not bad prices.
Bedrooms are super, with an absolutely excellent shower.
As I write, our stay is not yet complete, but, I would come back here again, and with no hesitation.

We knew nothing about this resort. My wife and I flew down from SF to meet some SoCal friends. We shared a suite with full kitchen down by the spa and fitness center.

The rooms were large and all had ceiling fans so we never had to turn on the ac. There was a wonderful view and large patio.

We all had massages which were good enough for some of us to go back for seconds. The fitness center was large and airy with lots of equipment.

The restaurants were good enough for us to never leave the resort except to play Trump National.

All in all it wasn't cheap but we left Terranea feeling relaxed and serene.

Room Tip: Much quieter if you are not in the main building. This is a wedding destination so it can be crowded...

Our stay at Terranea Resort was absolutely wonderful and memorable. As if the scenic views and gorgeous location weren't enough, the resort staff exemplifies outstanding service at every turn. The dining options at the resort are all first-rate, and I have to give a special shout-out to Stacy at Catalina Kitchen, who made our mornings delightful with her attention to detail, great sense of humor, and amazing memory. After our first breakfast experience, we couldn't wait to see her again and always requested her section in the restaurant. Mar Sel was phenomenal as well - certainly one of the best meals I've had in a long time. We were thrilled to have such great weather during our visit, which allowed us to take full advantage of Terranea's outdoor amenities. But even on a rainy weekend, I'd be happy to be there. Kudos to Terri Haack and her world-class team at Terranea!

Room Tip: It's definitely worth it to have an ocean view.
