One word, amazing...

I cannot say enough good things about this resort. The breathtaking views, the great food, the beautiful surroundings. The highlight was our walk along the coastal trail that lead down to a secluded beach and drinks by the outside firepit at Nelson's. Can't wait to go again.

#24 @ Mar'sel

Once again we enjoyed a beautiful evening at mar'sel that fed all of our senses. Starting off with a slightly tart but exquisite kumquat cocktail (no alcohol), we moved into a wonderful hearts of palm salad that was fresh, tender and full of flavor. For our entrees, my husband chose an incredible NY steak and I selected the superb oregon mushroom/morel dish. These mushrooms had a woodsy/rich flavor and I'm already wishing I'd ordered a second plate to go. On the side, we had the potato fingerlings with creme fraiche (we certainly indulged!). There was lots of oo'ing and ah'ing taking place at our table. Never to be missed, we completed our meal with cherries and mint ice cream and the melt in your mouth brown butter blueberry crisp. Being at Terranea is a wonder in itself - the graceful pelicans above, the dolphins playing in the water and the mesmerizing gently lilting waves of the ocean. Top that off with another magnificent meal at Mar'sel and we feel incredibly grateful. A big thank you to Jessica who helped us with our selections. She added her warm personality to the ambience of the evening.

mar'sel was amazing!

mar'sel was amazing! I was visiting friends for a couple of days, and having dinner right on the coast was spectacular. Food was delicious and the most welcoming staff I have ever met, Jerry or Terry(I'm not good with names) was very helpful and did a fantastic job. Thank you all for a wonderful evening, cant wait to go back.

Amazing Property

My husband and I just celebrated a special occasion at Terranea. We are still smiling as the experience was so special. The accomodations are beautiful as are the many outdoor patios and walking trails that take full advantage of the wonderful ocean views. This a beautiful and serene property. Dinner at mar'sel was fabulous, so was breakfast at Catalina Kitchen. The staff is friendly and welcoming. We will return many more times in the future.

Loved it!

We just spent a long Labor Day weekend at Terranea with our son, daughter-in-law and 2 yr old granddaughter. It was their second stay and our first. We absolutely loved everything about Terranea from its first class accommodations, gorgeous views and great dining facilities. It was less than a 45 minute drive from LA but we felt like we were in a different world. We were especially impressed with the scenic walking paths that granted us access and views to the beautiful and natural land and seascapes of the area. Can't wait to go back!

It took my breath away!

This is by far the best resort I have ever been to. I got in late so I didn't see the view until I opened the drapes in the morning and it just took my breath away. I sat there with my coffee and watched the resort come to life. The staff and service were by far the most accomodating and professional I have had the pleasure to have in years! The Links is the greatest little Par 3 my daughter (11 yrs) and I have ever played on together. This has given us long lasting memories and I hope to come back as a tradition as it is only 1.5 hours away from home! Lovely, beautiful, relaxing, PHENOM!

Terranea - A Year Later

Not only were owners of Palos Verdes real estate eagerly awaiting the opening of our first hotel, Terranea, which is a world class resort, but most area residents were curious about the building on the old Marineland site which I chronicled on this blog. Over a year has passed since the grand opening and I have only had fabulous experiences at Terranea. As a guest at a Terrenea casitas looking out at the ocean, bays and coves, I could imagine myself in Hawaii, Italy or the south of France – no need to get on an airplane...

A Calm, Peaceful, Paradise on the coast

I've visited Terranea on many occasions just to enjoy the beauty of this resort. From the natural landscaping to the warm and inviting spaces within the resort; it is a place where you can go to unwind, have a wonderful meal, walk the trails, see wildlife, hear and smell the sound of the ocean and breathe in the fresh air. I've sat in the lobby with a cup of sea beans coffee and read by the fireplace. I've enjoyed an incredible meal at mar'sel with my husband and celebrated Valentine's Day at Catalina Kitchen. There are so many places to sit, watch, listen and enjoy. It is a treasure to behold and a pleasure to all the senses.

Cintas kick off meeting was a huge success

Our FY'10 Cintas kick off meeting was a huge success. The beautiful setting and incredible facilities certainly sent a strong message to our employees that they were valued by our company. However, the personal attention and flexibility the staff showed us was even better. They went out of their way to accommodate our numerous food and beverage and banquet requests without a hesitation. We truly appreciated the service and we impressed our Executive Leadership which helps us out tremendously in the Western Region. We are all raving fans! Bravo! -- Andrew J. Roschmann, Cintas
