Been coming since they opened.

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: Close to our home and perfect 'staycation' option with little kids.
Cons: Better scheduling of corporate events, so other guests are not inconvenienced or shortchanged.
Location: Not much to do I'm afraid. PV is a remote location, and the only activities are driving distance or onsite.
My family and I have been coming to Terranea for the past five years, since they opened. I understand that the resort is popular and want to accommodate more people, but our last stay was a nightmare. We live less than 5 miles away, but have small kids so we come to Terranea for 'staycations'. The stay started well with an upgrade to a casita, but it was all downhill from there. 1. I checked with Catalina Kitchen to see that kids 4 and under still ate free, before making reservation, and the manager told me they did. Well, nope! We were charged $12.95 per kid. If the kids weren't free we would have eaten at Nelson's. 2. A group bought out the pool area for a private party, so when we came down to the pool on the day of, a server told us we had to leave by 3PM, or 4PM (she didn't even know). WTH! Why couldn't this info have been given to us prior. It turned out that they opened up the adult pool to all ages from 3PM-5PM. Small consolation. 3. They scheduled an adult pool volleyball game at the adult pool, so my kids had to stay in a little corner of the pool the whole time. One of the attendants even had the nerve to suggest that we leave so my kids won't get hurt. How about you prevent my kids getting hurt by rescheduling the volleyball game?

Great weekend get away

Posted Sep 3, 2014
We had a wonderful 3 day weekend at Terranea with two other families. The hotel was able to give us three rooms in a row so we were able to enjoy lots of time with our friends. The staff was great from the front desk to pool side service. This spot really feels like you've gone away

I recommend !

Posted Sep 3, 2014
I recommend to all my friends and family to Terranea hotel. Really clean and comfortable bed and the hotel staff are friendly and courteous. Also pool and restaurant was fantastic and I love hiking trails too. The restaurant must be reservation before you going.(breakfast, lunch, dinner) If not have to wait long time.

Beyond Beautiful Location! Stunning Views

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Beautiful Design.. Attention to Details!!
Last Minute Deal.. and what a surprise!! First Class Property.. the experience is pricey but the quality and service befit the price. Obvious that locals in Palos Verdes love the place. The Adult Pool is a great get-away but the resort is equally as functional for families as singles. Would highly recommend this experience for those who would like the luxury with out the snobbery. Extra Helpful Staff... All this ...and twenty minutes south of LAX.. !!

Stunning hotel overlooking Pacific & Catalina

Posted Aug 10, 2014
This is our second time in the hotel, once when they opened in 2009 and this past weekend. The only issue I had is that I requested an ocean view room on an upper floor, we were on the ground floor and had to keep the sheer curtains closed as we had a constant parade of guests walking but of our lanai was a make-shift soccer field-not the romantic get-away we had in mind

Amazing view

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Location: I particularly liked the trail out and around the resort. It was fantastic for my daily run!
Absolutely fantastic place. Great facilities, amazing ocean view, and great food. We stayed there for a week and truly enjoyed our stay. The only negative point was that there was no access to the beach. Abalone Beach was the closest which its parking is just 5 minutes drive from the resort but requires quite a bit of hiking to get to the shore line! I would recommend Manhattan Beach which is 30 minutes drive.

Beautiful resort on the Pacific

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Ocean views throughout, beautiful bungalows and common areas, friendly staff. Family oriented and pet friendly. Nothing not to like.
Cons: Retrieving your car from valet parking can be a little slow at busy times.
Stayed here while attending a wedding nearby. Exceptional views and property. It is a very large resort, with a lot of activities going on. Nice gym, spa and walking trails along the ocean. Family oriented and also pet friendly, which is great (made me miss ours, who were back in FL). The valet parking can get a little busy at prime times, but that is to be expected with such a large facility and one main entrance. Would definitely stay again when in the area. Beautiful place I'd highly recommend.
