The ocean view suite was a very nice room with an amazing ocean view. Lots of hiking trails around the resort with active night life at the restaurants, pools and bars. I am a local resident who lives in Torrance, CA, and this was a nice getaway.

A fantastic location with beautiful rooms, incredible views, and a staff that knows how to take care of you! From the resort lobby and outdoor gardens to private terraces and inviting courtyards with outdoor fireplaces, our carefully tended southern California resort experience was great. A location were one looks forward to return.

Great place to walk, very good food. Unfortunately, the customer service at the front desk spoiled the experience for us. We were part of a large party for a wedding. Our room was to be covered by the host...but Terranea lost the reservation (they blamed it on a computer software change issue). And even after clearing up the problem, our...

We were very grateful to stay in a casita right in the ocean! We would wake up to the crashing waves, whales migrating north, and bunnies eating grass. The trail along the resort had great views too! The spa was a great experience as well. It was very relaxing to be able to stay by the pool all day and...

We could not have asked for a more enjoyable ocean view room than the one we had.We visited and enjoyed three of the sites restaurants, each providing their own unique flavor and excellent service. The golf course was a delightful experience. Short but challenging! A wonderful way to celebrate a 46th anniversary.

Overall great experience. The restaurants, shops and all aspects of the hotel exceeded expectations. I would like to return on a non- business trip so that I can experience more of what the resort has to offer.

I stayed here for a business meeting and would have never found it otherwise because it is so out of the way. In this instance that is a good thing because there is everything at the resort that you would want. I ate at every restaurant except Nelson's and they were all very good. The one exception was Mar'sel where...

Extremely nice property - only complaint are a couple of instances of perceived price gouging. Parking at $38 is too high. Prices at Nelson's are too high and the menu too mediocre. Room service menu pricing is too high.
