This was my second trip to Terranea for business, and it was just as outstanding as my first trip. The resort staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I stayed in a casita with a view of the ocean, which was incredible for the moments between working sessions when I needed a break.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

An amazing resort right on the Southern California Coast Line. It is a wonderful escape from the pressures of life. There are many food options, the spa is top notch and the pools are so relaxing. At check in they handed us a glass of champagne and it only got better from there...

They closed the pool due to a private party. Kids couldn't use the slide. Secondary pool was not heated and couldn't swim. Plumbing failed in my room. Raw sewage came up through shower drain twice and flooded bathroom. Clothes were ruined. Not one manager even called or was concerned, nor met with us at checkout

Lots of families who are obvioulsy well off as if forced to find a complaint all I can say is that the food and beverage prices are high for what...

great. Try to get more gluten free desserts on the menu like chocolate mouse, flourless cakes, or rice flour cakes, etc. The staff said the gelatos had gluten all except the fruit sorbet. Would be nice to have a more decadent option ;)

Food was overpriced, service was poor, pool was dirty :( My family had dinner at Nelson's our first night there and it took over 10 minutes to get seated (and we had reservations) while people who came after us who had NO reservations were seated immediately! (Huh??!) Once seated, our waitress brought us water and did not return to take...

Our family of four (kids 15 and 12) had a very nice weekend stay at Terranea. We had an ocean view room on the 7th floor of the main hotel building. Our view was very nice - overlooking the main pool, with a nice view of the ocean. The room was large and very comfortable for four people. We really...

Great way to take family for Easter Sunday. Good food, nice warm pool and beautiful scenery. Lots of activity that will keep you busy and occupied. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Rooms are modern chic newly renovated with separate shower, tub and toilet. Beds comfortable with a huge Flat screen TV mounted on the wall.

Great destination hotel, pet friendly, welcoming staff. Only complaint is that bungalows are supposed to be adult only but that isn't regularly enforced. Lots of variety of activities and food options.
