The surf and sand is a lovely resort. We had an enjoyable stay. Our room was lovely and spacious with plenty of amenities and storage. We paid a premium price for a Summer 4th of July stay. It is never inexpensive at the Surf and Sand. I do however expect just a touch more luxury for the price. However. The...

This was luxurious to the max. The location cannot be beat. Felt so relaxed! The only thing is that the airline lost my luggage and when I asked the staff to call me at any hour of the night when it arrived, they didn't. I slept in jeans and they told me it arrived after I called in the morning.

One of the best properties I've stayed at, anywhere. Room was large, had everything you needed and balcony sits right on the shoreline. The service from the front desks was excellent and friendly. I was with a large group (36) and all had high praise. Could probably do with another bar as the only bar they have, whilst a brilliant...

We went for a group Christmas Party. Staff was absolutely wonderful. Very accommodating. Beautiful rooms and of course the view spectacular. We will definitely be back again, this time with family, so they can enjoy it as much we did with friends.

A boutique hotel with smiling staff, excellent beach access, fine amenities, and service that is fast, courteous, and pleasant. I would add that this a very informal atmosphere which made the experience even more enjoyable. We would definitely come back!

The Surf and Sand has the location and so much more! Top notch service and facilities. Beachfront location offers sweeping views that won't soon be forgotten. A great place to relax, rewind, and rejuvenate.

The property is in great shape and is located right next to the ocean. The service and food is top-notch. We stayed there for my wife's birthday and she said this was her birthday ever. All of the staff members were extremely helpfuly. We had only one problem and that was with a party of people below us smoking "grass"...

This place has the best view of any place in So Cal- quiet & right on the sand and perfect for sunset dining or a quick cocktail at the bar. The wine list was sorely lacking but the chef made my food precisely to my dietary requirements. How often does that happen! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience- perfect service and...

This is a very nice hotel, right on the sandy beaches of Laguna Beach. It is pricey, but is a great getaway for families and couples. It has a great restaurant downstairs and the room are right on the beach, a few feet away from the ocean. Staff is not the friendliest but overall, I give this place 5 stars...
