Visited Surf and Sand for Valentines Day from LA with my sweetie. We both experienced massages at Aquaterra Spa and then had lunch at their Splashes restaurant. The resting room was beautiful....aqua blues and whites. My therapist explained it had just been redecorated and the fireplace and outdoor jacuzzi was awesome! I originally signed up for an organic 60 minute... More

Sweet day spa right near the gorgeous ocean. I am not a regular spa goer buty neck and back has been hurting for a few weeks now so I thought I would get a massage while staying at the Surf and Sand Hotel. My therapist was Mikki and she made me comfortable from the first touch of her hand shake... More

My husband and I booked the custom massages and were treated like gold! From the front desk to the masseuses, the entire staff were fantastic!! The women's locker room was a good size! There were plenty of lockers, two showers, a steam room, bathroom, vanity area stocked with what ever necessity's you might need and an outdoor (private) spa/jacuzzi area!... More

I don't recommend the nail services. The room is an over-sized closet and the atmosphere is not what one would expect in an upscale resort spa. Preferred the Ritz. (Had a pedicure at one and a manicure at the other).

I love a good massage, but even more then that, I love a good spa. The service at this spa was excellent and the special they had going on for a 50 minute massage followed by a 3-course meal was a great idea. My massage therapist was very attentive and used good technique. The outdoor jacuzzi was lovely as were... More

This was a pleasant, if relatively small, spa. Staff is friendly, and prices are much cheaper than at Montage or Ritz. Had a very nice mud wrap treatment: combined mud application, wrapping, scalp massage, vichy shower and lotion application, for $95. Very relaxing. My deep-tissue massage was ok, and my husband thought his seaweed/massage treatment was kind of lame, but... More

Decided to try this spa because their prices were half the price of Montage's spa (where we were staying). My husband and I shared the "Earth Ritual" it's a 140 minute experince which includes a scrub, private bubble bath and 90 minute massage for two in an oceanview tratment room. It was the most relaxing experince I've ever had. I... More
