This boutique hotel has one of the best locations in Laguna Beach. If you can get a room in the Tower Building, ocean front, you'll be set with an ocean front view right on the water. Some hotels boast ocean fronts or ocean views when all you see is a speck of blue-the Surf and Sand fulfills it's promise if you get a room in the Tower Building.
The rooms are lovely although every time we go there they seem to be in need of a bit of an update.
The hotel has a pretty good restaurant but you'd be better off going into town and eating at 230 Forest Avenue.
I love this place. It isn't perfect but has a lot of charm, has a fantastic ocean view, and it's not an overpriced giant chain hotel where the price of the extravagant entry way to the hotel is built into the price of your room.
