Thank you for another memorable stay!

First of all, I want to thank Joel at the reservation desk who was very accomodating and gave us a very nice surprise room upgrade to celebrate our anniversary.Very nice touch! I happen to mention that we got married at Terranea-Catalina Point- 2 years ago and we wanted to rekindle the memories. We can't imagine Terranea being more spectacular than it was 2 years ago-but it truly is, with the same impeccable service. We were very impressed with the anniversary treatment-dessert on the house (at every restaurant in the hotel!) free champagne. These simple touches made a huge difference in our impression of Terranea. My husband and I will make this an annual anniversary tradition! Thank you and kudos for a great staff and a welcome stay.

The Spa at Terranea Resort - Review by BeautySmith

After spending a heavenly weekend at Terranea (terra-NAY-a) Resort, it’s time to get back to reality. Although I do live in sunny Southern California, I don’t typically wake up to room service on a peninsula that feels worlds away from everything else. So for me, and I would assume for most people, it’s an absolute treat to visit an ocean front resort that offers so many luxurious amenities. Just south of Los Angeles, Terranea Resort is perfectly perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Palos Verdes. The old-world Mediterranean architecture enhances the ambiance, giving it an unexplained feeling of comfort and familiarity. Poised on 102 pristine acres with breathtaking panoramic ocean views, this world-class resort offers countless ways to spend each day. Who doesn’t like a seamless check-in with champagne in hand? After admiring the ocean view suite, I dashed off to take the ocean trail hike that was offered. I was the only one that showed up at 4:00 PM. Yay for me, I love private tours! Debbie, one of the fitness instructors, showed me the lay of the land. It was an excellent way to stretch my legs after the car ride and learn more about the property...
