While this is a pretty pricy place to stay....it's pretty great. Arriving to check in, we were offered a glass of bubbly! Our room was on 6th floor with a great west facing water/resort view. The room was very large and quiet. A few maintenance issues with bathroom door not fitting and the sea colored scheme wasn't to my taste.... More

The location is deal. Prior to this visit, I didn't even know LA has something like this. It takes you to another time, another place. Walking around the resort on a warm night is enchanting. Music lingers in the air with blithe chatter heard all around. The food is excellent, other than Nelson's which is terrible, service is exceptional and... More

My husband was here on a business retreat and I was able to join him. I have been to Terranea for lunch & dinner and had walked the grounds a bit, but this was my first time staying there. Whether you self-park or valet, the cost is the same ($35), so I valeted. Upon check-in, they handed me a glass... More

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. Its the worst resort we've ever been to. And we travel the world. The customer service was below standards. The security leader was a complete disgrace. You can't have a cocktail past 11 if you get a little drunk you will get security called on you. Its not a place to have any... More

The hotel has no standard of a 5 star hotel except for charging me for the price of a 5 star hotel. The cleanliness was appalling. The room was battered and carpets filthy. There is no beach, no whale or dolphin sighting from resort, we stayed for two weeks. I should have done better research on the hotel. Luxury hotels... More

I was here for two nights for a wedding weekend. The resort location is gorgeous, and I will definitely like to get married here. However, customer service is one of the worst I've experienced.

Wonderful food, delicious drink - all consumed while looking out over the ocean! Throw in exceptional service and it is hard to beat the Terranea for a corporate meeting and a few days of relaxing. TIP: Take the coastal road from LA to help relax on the drive.

Here is a resort worthy of being 1000 miles away, yet it is only 50 minutes from downtown L.A. We love Terranea resort for our friends' weddings, and for celebrating our important dates, such as birthdays, and anniversaries. But, most of all we love it because it is a family staycation destination. We've rented a Casita on memorial day weekend... More
