I stayed here for a week and felt like I was in heaven. My room was right on the beach and the room was impeccable. Service was very attentive from the valets to bell hops to restaurant staff. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a place to stay in Laguna.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed surf and sand hotel. It is very different than any hotel we have stayed in before. This boutique hotel offers a swank environment for young and old alike and is also family friendly. The staff is excellent all around. The rooms are enormous and beautiful and offer queen beds with luxury linens. All rooms are Located... More

This hotel could not be any closer to the Pacific Ocean if it tried. The waves are inches away from the main building and enjoyed by surfers, bathers, and the plain old scaredies like us. We had a suite with a large patio balcony on the fourth floor and the view was tremendous. Pre warned about the noise of the... More

This place has to be seen to be believed - the waves come right up and touch the hotel at high tide! Superb rooms, superb views, superb food and helpful and friendly staff. A bit pricey but overall excellent and one of our favourite hotels in the world.

Don't let the PCH frontage fool you. This hotel is right on the main street but miles and miles from the rest of the world. The suites with the sun decks are posh and airy. The service has been impeccable since Jon first showed us to the room. Breakfast was delicious and unique...who puts dates in an omelette...?...but it works.... More

This is the most beautiful hotel!! It is our favorite place. Every room has a fantastic ocean view, but we prefer the Tower rooms. The waves literally crash right outside your window. The food and service by the pool are outstanding, especially Kyle and Mitchell. They are so friendly and knew us by name every morning when we went to... More

I came here for a small conference which meant we were inside much of the time. But when we weren't, we had the most beautiful views of the ocean imaginable. Everything (except the conference room) is set up to take maximum advantage of the location--even the placement of the bed in the room! The pool and spa look out on... More

We wanted a close by location for a 3 day anniversary trip. I had been told of the luxurious accommodations and fantastic location of the Surf and Sand from a business associate so we decided to give it a try. Located on the 101 in Laguna Beach this Resort is right on the sand. There was a slight mix up... More

Let's start (and end) with the views. Whether sitting in my room, the restaurant, the terraces or the pool, the views of the ocean and sunset were amazing. That alone will make you relax. Add on the delicious food from the restaurant, the great service from the staff and the terrific location, and you have the perfect vacation. This hotel... More

We have been enjoying the Surf and Sand Resort for over ten years; now we fondly refer to it as our home away from home. The service is beyond compare;the ocean view is like none other. Splashes is phenomenal and the Sunday street tacos are awesome. The staff is top notch making guests feel special and accommodating our every need.... More
