I have stayed at this resort twice in the past year. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The grounds are impeccably maintained. I left both times feeling slightly underwhelmed. Maybe it is the staff and their lack of connection to the guests. I wouldn't compare Terranea to The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, but for the price it is a...

Ok, my husband and I decided to book a day earlier then the wedding festivities that has us visiting this beautiful resort. But we're so glad that we did. Terranea is hands down the best US resort that we've had the pleasure to stay at. We literally sat outside for a few hours in the not so warm weather just...

The resort sits on almost at the edge of the cliffs overlooking two State Marine Conservation Areas. There is a trail running through the resort that is accessible, and used, by locals and others not staying aat the resort, which enhanced the experience. I enjoyed a beautiful sunset run on this trail, and saw a sunset that was truly unique...

You cannot fault the location. It's lovely. And they've tried to maximize that attribute. Staff generally great (although check in was a little condescending giving me directions to my room that involved taking two elevators, walking two long corridors, and going through a "wooden" door that was poorly marked). But although the room (so the room service attendant told me)...

The staff and physical plant are wonderful. My casita was world class. The problem is Managment. When you are paying a premium don't nickel and dime guests. Drink pours are a disgrace (especially given the high prices). Sushi was dry like it sat out for 20 minutes. This place could be great if Managment decided that guests who pay a...

We had a fantastic Thanksgiving at Terranea. Great food, great location, very fun and relaxing. Being so close to the ocean, we were able to hear the ocean waves crashing into the shore, very relaxing indeed!

I surprised my husband for his birthday and took him to Terranea for the night. When we arrived the front desk informed us they had upgraded us from a regular king-size room to a 1 bedroom oceanfront casita! It was unexpected and the casita was beyond our expectations! Everything about our little getaway at Terranea was wonderful...can't wait to go...

The property is beautifully situated on the coast with gorgeous views. Wonderful food, lovely pools. There is staff everywhere you turn, in the halls, all over the property, which was a little disarming, but most were friendly and helpful. However, I locked myself out of our room (the third time the card keys would not work). I had just finished...

Terrific property in a beautiful setting. Accommodations are very nice. Hospitality is average with service being very much hit or miss. For example: when calling to see if a restaurant is open on more than one occasion the answer was let me check and then yes, only to walk over to the restaurant to find it closed. Better yet: 9am...
