My husband and I booked an over night stay for our anniversary. He had arranged ahead for champagne and flowers to be delivered to our room upon arrival. He even confirmed this four days in advance. Well, at 9:30 P.M., we had just gone to bed, there is a knock at the door and the champagne arrives! The flowers never...

We celebrated two birthdays. One for a business associate who turned 50, the other for my husband who turned 60. Both celebrations were momentous. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay two nights and receive the third night free deal! We will be back soon!

I stayed here for three nights at a work conference. The hotel is in a great location in Palos Verdes on the bluffs above the ocean. I had a southward looking ocean view down the coast, which gave me a view of three of the four pools at the hotel. I'd stayed here before and the hotel has a large...

As usual, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and the accommodations that Terrenea provided. It Felt like we were in the Mediterranean or some other exotic place. Hard to believe it's the only beachfront resort in LA. Gaetan at hotel destinations made us feel very welcome and checked in every day to see if we needed anything.

This resort was a real disappointment. Arrived at 4:00, waited in check-in line for 30 minutes. Our room was not ready. Told to come back in an hour. Waited in check-in line a 2nd time for 25 minutes. Only 2 employees at the desk. The room was very average, no better than a 3 star similar to a Courtyard. Every...

I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I am. I have stayed at Terranea a number of times - and have found it a lovely home away from home. This past visit, however, fell woefully short. * We checked in on Saturday of Memorial Day wknd, and were rushed to and away from the reception desk. We weren't offered...

Expected more for the price! Marsel was just fair, Catalina was better. Cielo pool needs a jacuzzi, the Vista pool needs a larger and hotter jacuzzi, and the spa needs a coed jacuzzi! One massage was absolutely awful! Sink made burping noise. Too many dogs at the hotel!

Overall a beautiful resort and I would return, but I would not pay extra for an ocean view. The description is highly misleading if you think you are getting a full view. We had a casita with a tiny glimpse of the ocean between two roofs. NOT good. I agree with the prior reviewer about avoiding holiday weekends; clearly a...
