Disappointing. Visited this property the first time in 2010 and it was an amazing experience. Something has changed over the years and the property lost its charm and quality. The staff needs solid training. We have been given several times the wrong information and the staff seems genuinely disinterested in our experience at the resort. Too bad, it used to be a great resort.

My stay at Terranea was not worth the money. I got a “ocean view” king room that has partial obstructed ocean view. But that was okay since I did not expect a full ocean view for that price. However, the main problem was in the bathroom. I found a huge COCKROACH that was right next to the toilet. Not a lie, that was the biggest cockroach that I have EVER seen in my life. I called the lobby and they sent me a person to clean it up. But I had to wait almost 30 minutes for that. I reported this problem when I checked out, and the front desk staff only provided a simple apology. I know this place is described as a 5 star hotel, but I honestly do not see any differences between Inn. Or Inn could be better at least I haven’t seen any cockroaches in Inns.
