I can't say enough good things about this hotel and their staff! It truly is a magical place to visit in Laguna Beach, and somewhere I genuinely call my favorite "home away from home". I live in Newport Beach, about 20 minutes North, but treat myself to a stay every few months. I love the location and beautiful waterfront views... More

My mother lost a diamond earring stud while attending a wedding and reception at the Surf & Sand. We are extremely grateful to all those at the resort who had a hand in finding it and returning it to her. Something so small could have been swept up or found and kept. But I give high praise to the the... More

Amazing three days at Surf & Sand. Highly recommended for "overhelmed and stressed out people!" Quite and very private. No screaming children or strange noises. The food is amazing...filled with rich flavors! Kind of place that you can go by yourself and enjoy the quite sounds of the ocean right at your balcony or perfect for a romantic time. Not... More

We have stayed in several different resorts and hotels in Laguna Beach. Surf and Sand is by far the best. We had a wonderful time during our stay, the location is amazing(on the water, walking distance to town, direct access to the beach), and the service is excellent. We will definitely be coming back!

The hotel was great and staff was friendly. It is worth every cent for a mini vacation on the beach. All the rooms seem to have ocean front views and location is great. The area around is cute and many places to eat and shop.

A definite ten. I loved the room, the view, the friendliness of the staff, and the location. Good walking and great food at Splashes. You cannot go wrong here, you really can't. Would love to return during the summer!

My husband and I really needed a weekend away without child, and living in LA, this was an easy distance. We got a room over the water (a surfside King) and the sound of the crashing waves all day and night was amazing. LOVED everything about this hotel as a getaway, Friday - Sunday felt like a week away from... More

The hotel is beautiful, just the right size (not too big, not too small), and all of the staff was very friendly to us! The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. We had our dream wedding there recently (Nov 8, 2014), and our coordinator was Lauren Bermann (ask for her if you can!!). She was just amazing! She helped us... More
