Welcome to Paradise. Situated on an oceanside bluff in posh Rancho Palos Verdes, the picturesque resort is a Mecca of relaxation and resort life. The 102-acre resort boasts a nine-hole golf course, spa, four pools (including adult-only), and eight—count 'em, eight—restaurants. And if that isn’t enough to keep you busy, there's also paddleboarding, snorkeling and horseback riding. Accommodations range from the usual rooms and suites to larger, more luxurious bungalows, casitas and villas. Rumor has it that even a few Hollywood films were filmed here, so be sure to show your good side when lounging by the pool.

WHOAAAAAA!!!! A dining experience that I haven't had in awhile. If you're into good food and a resort-style experience, Catalina Kitchen is the way to go.
Make sure to have a reservation when coming here as it gets very busy. Also the location of this resort is so remote so it really felt like I was in vacation in the Carribbean.
The food selection was pretty good including raw seafood, cooked seafood, omlette station, cheese/cured meats, dessert including handchurned ice cream and crepes, sushi, and more. Everything was pretty fresh and made very well.
There are no mimosas included with this brunch and you're paying already $60/person. Even the 4 seasons hotel includes mimosas....
The service was also excellent so they're doing a good job there.
It may be a bit of trek to get out here, but I fell in love with Terranea after coming here for one of the summer concerts/beer garden next to Nelson's. The views are incredible - I can see why everyone gets proposed to here. At the little beer garden, drinks are pretty expensive ($9 for a Boston lager?!), but they have some stellar food like a lobster roll with HUGE chunks of lobster, and I guess you can rationalize that you're paying for the views, too. The grounds are great for exploring, or for stumbling on a Western-themed business conference and stealing a cowboy hat. Ahem, so I've heard.
Terranea is one of my all-time favorite places in the world. There's no place like it in California, whether you're staying there for a weekend getaway or you're just stopping by for a walk and a some dinner. While the restaurants are expensive, they are all worth it. The food is delicious and the views—especially at Nelsons—are worth the price alone. There are plenty of hiking trails around the area to walk off all the calories you'll eat up and there's a hidden cave down at the beach that makes for some fun exploring.
