Located on the breathtaking Pacific Ocean cliffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula lies the idyllic Terranea Resort and Golf Course. This Mediterranean style resort is perched along the Rancho Palos Verdes coast on over 100 acres of unobstructed views of the ocean and Catalina Island. Conveniently located just 25 minutes from the Los Angeles International Airport, this magnificent luxury resort makes a wonderful getaway for visitors and local residents alike.

The hotel is made up of a variety of well appointed accommodations including guest rooms, suites, villas, bungalows and Casitas, making it a wonderful choice for families of all sizes. All the guests we have interviewed agree that the rooms are fantastic and the beds very comfortable.

There are a total of 3 pools on the property, and families especially will enjoy the main resort pool with giant water slide. The hotel appeals to adults as well as families. The Spa at Terranea was built with wellness and comfort as its main objective and is located in one of the most picturesque oceanfront settings in California. With an excellent gym, a peaceful outdoor pool facing the ocean, and a full service Spa and Wellness Center, this 50,000 square foot oasis is sure to nurture both body and mind.

There are ample dining choices at the Terranea Resort itself with 8 different options. Among these are casual settings like the Lobby Bar and Lounge open noon until about midnight, or more formal dining options like Bashi for both lunch and dinner (open 11am through 10pm daily). Order food from the full service poolside menu at the main pool or the Spa Cafe, or enjoy a private meal indoors with 24 hours in-room dining service.

Surrounding the hotel and weaving its way throughout the Terranea Resort is a challenging nine hole Par-3 golf course with spectacular views of the ocean from every hole. The Links at Terranea is a highly recommended course for golfers of any skill level simply because of it’s beauty, challenging design, and well maintained grounds. Pull carts and golf club rentals are available at the pro-shop. There are also two putting greens, and chipping green, and private lessons are available for anyone wishing to fine tune their swing. Anyone wishing to play on a full size world class course can also drive just a few minutes south to Trump National for the same experience, but on a larger scale.

    This hotel is fantastic. I love it. Beautiful property, kid and adult friendly, 3 pools including a party style with bar, sand and spa pool which is beautiful and tranquil. There is was a huge water slide in the main pool (right below the room we stayed in). There were 4 restaurants, gym, beautiful views… everything tastefully done. Rooms are well appointed and the beds are ridiculously comfortable. Great shopping with cool clothes, etc, and wine list is very nice!
