Terranea is expensive but worth every penny. Stunning ocean views and grounds, wonderful, restaurants and the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. Our room was lovely. I didn’t want to leave... oh, and incredibly friendly staff who offered us a complimentary glass of champagne on arrival. It all worked!

Everyone was so nice and accomodating.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no free breakfast
The room was very clean with the twice daily services. The only thing we did not like was the paying for parking. I felt as a guest and paying for the room- the parking should have been included.

Wow factor

When we checked in, the staff handed us complimentary glasses of champagne. Our stay just got better from there. The view of the ocean is spectacular. The public rooms are inviting. Service is memorably accommodating. I didn't begin to check out all the amenities, but they looked wonderful.

Great hotel

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
property is great. Right off the ocean, very clean and welcoming atmosphere. Only issue I had is that even after I paid for the entire stay ahead of time, they still put a hold on my account for the entire amount of the stay, it's almost like I paid twice for the stay.

this resort made me feel very relaxed and welcome

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, providing bottle water
As I drove in the driveway, I felt relaxed and pleased with the atmosphere. From valet to the room, the service was exceptional, friendly and courtious. Since I have been back, I have recomended to my friends and can't wait to go back to visit. Next time, I will definitely consider an ocean view. My stay was well worth the price!!!

What a spectacular place!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We had a wonderful time. This is an amazing location and a spectacular piece of property - where the old aquarium was - and the views are magnificent. The room was spacious, comfortable, with a huge bathroom and a comfortable balcony overlooking the Pacific. The food was very good. Our only (minor) complaint was that they were not very organized about the restaurants: no one at the desk, or at the various restaurants seemed to know what the hours or even menu was at the 4 different eating establishments at the resort! When we called down to the front desk they had to put us on hold to ask someone, and the information was incorrect. Brunch on Sunday was completely booked for hours. We were told to go to the cafe right on the water, and we arrived at 10:30 and they were at the end of breakfast service. They refused to give us breakfast, even though the desk had said they would have breakfast for another half an hour. So we had lunch. We had similar confusion a couple of other times about this one aspect. Everything else was wonderful. Highly recommended.

this hotel and surroundings are beautiful!!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, breath taking views
Cons: no night life at night
I would recommend this resort a million times over. I do not have anything critical to say. The setting is breath taking. The rooms are very upscale. I felt so relaxed here and hope to get back here in future
