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.
