My recent stay at Terranea exceeded all of my expectations. From the moment I arrived at the resort I was greeted with friendly smiles and impeccable service. The attention to detail was evident in every aspect of the resort, from the beautifully designed casita to the stunning views of the ocean. This resort had everything you could desire--we did not leave the property once this weekend. The spa was the ultimate relaxing getaway. My girlfriends and I spent the afternoon popping back and forth between all of the amenities. After our treatments we were so relaxed we finished the afternoon drinking cocktails by the pool, admiring the incredible views. I cannot recommend this resort enough! What truly made our experience unforgettable was the genuine warmth and friendliness of the staff. They went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of our stay was perfect. I will definitely be back! :) Thanks again, Terranea.

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was fantastic!! We have been meaning to check this place out and are so glad that we finally experienced it! Beautiful location and magical sunsets!! The scenery around Terranea is amazing! Music in the lounge each night was very good too! It has a really good gym with plenty of high end equipment. This is a gem property! The staff was super. The walk along the trails and cliffs are very nice to do. We saw dolphins too! Joe the “Falconer” gave an introduction into how he and his various birds, keep the property free of pesky birds. We enjoyed this place so much that we are already planning a return trip in a couple months.
