I had such a great weekend at Terranea with my girlfriends! The casitas are amazing and it was so nice to get to stay together & enjoy the beautiful view and amenities. We enjoyed live music at the pool for sunset and enjoyed our easy morning hike on the spectacular property in the morning. The spa has the most incredible ocean view and the water was truly sparkling. I highly recommend Terranea, best staycation ever!!

This place is a special LA getaway. From the moment you drive down Terrenea Way, you no longer feel that you are in LA. It is a breath of fresh air from the chaos of LA life. The staff are courteous, friendly and go out of their way to be helpful and make your stay special. It is worth doing a morning work-out, hike the Palos Verdes peninsula, play 9 holes on the par 3 executive course, spend time at the Spa’s salt water pool (no kids) and eat at one of the restaurants. Our favorite was Bakshi. You should not miss their shaking beef and sushi. Our son loves the dumplings. If you stay longer and play golf, the Trump course is a nice treat but pricey (not hotel-related). We cannot wait to return to the Resort.

Terranea resort was truly a family vacation getaway and extremely memorable. Ocean views were simply spectacular and the pools were very relaxing and stress free. Meals both at pool side and the restaurants were well prepared, very tasty and filling. Christina Naya was truly helpful at the Concierge Experience and provided excellent service and advice. This made our stay even more enjoyable and looking forward to a second visit in the near future. Regards, Narsing family.

We stayed at The Terranea Resort in late January. Terranea was excellent. All of the employees were attentive and friendly. The room was ready before check in time. The ocean view room was very clean with a comfortable bed. There is an oceanfront trail below the hotel. We were taken in a golf cart to the front of the trail. We had a delicious dinner at Mar'Sel Restaurant. Hope to return soon.

Was always curious to stay at Terranea after reading all the glowing reviews! Finally had my chance with their winter buy one get second night free sale that they run towards the end of the year. I booked a wknd stay for Feb. 2024 and got slightly lucky with the weather (sandwiched btwn rainy days). I’m glad I got the deal as there’s no way I would’ve paid normal prices to stay here. Yes the property is beautiful and the hiking trails are nice but I feel like the overnight mandatory valet parking fee for $60 a day is ridiculous. The day parking fee is $25 but not for overnight guests. I just moved to LA last year so while it was a nice mini staycation I could’ve saved $$$$ just doing a day trip to the trails. The rooms themselves are ok but nothing special or luxe, more classically decorated than modern. I took a couple of fitness classes (the Pilates/yoga one and a sunset yoga one) and enjoyed both classes and the slight view of the ocean. Didn’t eat at any of the restaurants as they seemed pricey and didn’t have great reviews so went off site for Thai and Mexican food nearby. Didn’t get to use the pools at all since it was chilly and windy so booking in the winter season is a hit or miss since the previous wknd was super warm and sunny. The hiking trails around the resort are nice and can fill one day (not more than that) but they’re open to the public too. The resort is clean and staff was friendly but I’ve stayed in many nice hotels for way cheaper in many places around the world so again, for the price it seemed a lot for not a lot of value or amenities. The only amenities in the resort fee seem to be the fitness center and the mini putt putt which they label as mini golf but it’s really 6 holes you can practice putting into. Everything else was an additional cost. So overall I had a nice stay but glad I got a deal to check it out. I don’t mind paying for things if I feel like the value is there but I didn’t see it here! And being a new local to the area, could’ve easily just done a day trip to the trails.

Catalina kitchen has the friendliest staff and gorgeous views. Overall it’s a great place to getaway in LA, winter or summer! Feels like you booked a trip to Hawaii even if you just come for lunch :) The full moon yoga (in the summer) is a must!!

Incredible view and atmosphere. Feels like paradise, and I didn’t have to get on a plane! I get extra hours to relax here instead of wasting two travel days. When time is my most scarce resource, that’s a big deal. My absolute favorite location, restaurants, and staff.

This place always has me coming back! Spent the weekend here with some girlfriends and we had a blast. We did yoga, spa, had drinks at the Lobby Bar with live music and had an amazing dinner at Bashi (PSA you must get the Shaking Beef)! The service was top notch, especially Sergio at valet and Tyler at the spa. Can’t wait to be back!
