We were visiting our daughter who is working in LA, and wanted to get away just the two of us for a few days, and, especially to be near the ocean. The ocean front rooms at Terranea are the best! And probably the ocean side and ocean view are pretty great, too, cause this amazing resort is right on The Pacific Ocean looking out at beautiful Catalina Island. There are walking paths (and you can rent an electric bike, too) all along the ocean and throughout the resort. The views are amazing every place you look. Dolphins and whales sightings actually do happen!!! The interior spaces are large and varied, with 4 or 5 different restaurants to chose from. All very different. Just a wonderful, relaxing place to be, and, less than an hour from LA. There's also a Light House and small local shopping center with Trader Joe's and several good restaurants. So, pretty much in your own little beautiful world with so many choices. Enjoy!!!

Hotel's Favorite
Booked a 3 BR casita on the ocean side. Was a perfect setting for my parents, aunt/uncle, and my wife and kids. Celebrated a big milestone birthday. Was able to cook a family dinner in the room the first night. Then enjoyed the Friday night seafood buffet the next. Played golf at the executive course on site, enjoyed the pool, booked a massage at the spa. All the services were top notch. Felt like a super-luxurious home away from home. Staff throughout the property was fantastic. The phone reservation agents were also super helpful in all of the planning. Strongly recommend Terranea.
