My husband and I wanted to explore this resort before we took the plunge and stayed overnight. We went hiking first in the hills above, then went for lunch at the Terranea (parking is $10.00). We ate at the Catalina restaurant and it was delicious. The prices are the usual for fine hotel dining, including $5.00 for a cup of coffee. But the ambience, the views, the service is so perfect, that it was worth every penny. We walked the grounds after lunch on the bluff trail overlooking the ocean, the gorgeous grounds have different walking paths. There are a few different pools and jacuzzis for the guests. There are also firepits and Nelson's, which is another restaurant away from the main hotel. We saw several people waiting for the sunset while sitting outside having drinks and snacks. We were there on a Sunday so saw a couple of receptions. Catalina Island was visiible, but we didn't see any whales. We're now planning to return to stay and savor all that the Terranea has to offer.
