Beautiful hotel, perfect for vacation and relaxing time! I was there for business purpose and could enjoy very little the whole place. The views are spectacular! The services are excellent! The food from both restaurants downstairs is delicious!!!!

Just gorgeous. Slow down. Talk to the staff and learn about this stretch of the southern California coast while you watch whales and dolphins swim by.

This is a not inexpensive large 582 room resort. It is pretty new, only 6.5 yeArs old and very well maintained. Service was excellent even though we were there when it was full on a holiday weekend. It is very family and dog friendly, yet there is plenty of space and facilities for couples and quiet. Rooms are quiet and...

My family lives in LA and over the years we have frequently visited Terranea for lunch or dinner. For Easter weekend, we decided on a last-minute overnight stay. I booked an "Ocean View" room for the weekend by telephone on Friday. I even received an email confirming that I had indeed booked an "Ocean View King". But when we checked...

I stayed here for Christmas and it was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful grounds and pool, extremely expansive. The buffet is of extremely high quality, and the cafe offers food but overpriced breakfast foods and sandwiches. Definitely recommend. Rating: 87/100

This resort was absolutely breathtaking. Front desk staff was outstanding. Housekeeping services were terrible at best. Enjoyed a 6 day stay however room services dishes that we ordered on day 1 were never collected, ice bins were removed and no clean glasses left in the room. Even after housekeeping was there the first few days everything still dirty however once...

Spectacular ocean views, rugged coastline, amazing spa with private pool, great restaurants, fantastic level of service, quiet and secluded, but not too far from everything. Great golf courses nearby. Organized nature walks and activities for kids.

Beautiful tranquil surroundings and great service. Be warned though about the high price of the breakfast buffet and the even more eye watering price of the Sunday brunch which for the high price of the rooms I think should be included.

Spent 3 nights as part of a industry summit, and thoroughly enjoyed the location and the amazing views from almost anywhere on the resort. Food was a bit below my expectations to a resort like this, but with great restaurants in the vicinity it is open for business. The bar closes too early for my taste, especially when attending business...
