Terranea is a wonderful property at an amazing location. It certainly tries very hard to come across as a 5 star resort. The Spa staff is amazing. Restaurant/bar staff is great. Rooms are well appointed and well cleaned. Front desk however, needs to go through re-training on customer service. After an extended wait at the lobby, I was given a

Our expected relaxing week-end with a balcony in front of ocean peaceful and quiet place was completely out of scope as soon as we got the room. The site and the overall service personnel are good but the room price is not worth 100$. The hotel is probably great for big events and couple of hour spent on the Mar'Sel restaurant, not for a relaxing w-e. Go to nearest starbucks isntead, great views too.

Would love to return every year! Staff were awesome, amenities, and the view was priceless. Even saw a whale from our balcony! Highly recommend enjoying a dip in the Vista pool before dinner and Nelson's!

I visited Terrenea for a girls' weekend to escape the chaos of home life/kids for one night. The room was perfect, the entire property was breathtaking, and although the resort is definitely family friendly, thanks to the adult pools, the experience I was going for was not compromised in the slightest. They had several options for adult-only pools and since there were so many spots to go, you could always find a serene place to be. Service at the hotel from booking to check out was outstanding. Everyone worked to go above and beyond kindness and helpfulness. The only times I ever felt slightly frustrated was when looking at menu prices. I consistently felt like things were not only expensive, but honestly just simply unreasonably overpriced. For example $68pp brunch buffet on Sunday. I can't even eat enough crab legs to make that worth it! I would come back and stay at Terrenea in a heart beat, but I'll probably pack myself a picnic lunch and a lot of snacks to try to offset some of the dining prices!

Beautiful venue with lots of activities available. We came for a family birthday dinner but I can see that this would be a good destination for several days. Our room was very spacious with a wonderful view of the ocean. We had our sliding glass door open over night for the cool ocean breeze. Unfortunately the staff was setting up for a party early and woke us up. Lots of noise while they assembled tables.
