Having not been anywhere due to Covid, I really needed a vacation. After doing my research, I decided to splurge and spent the money, approx 2K, for three incredible nights here. The view from my oceanfront room with two queens (#212), was breathtaking. Like most hotels at this time, certain things are not readily available in your room and you will have to call guest services and ask to have them brought to you. That was totally fine because their staff is so friendly and helpful. Anything I requested was immediately brought to me! A very big thank you to Alexis and Stu! The room I stayed in is beginning to show signs of age, but was clean and having my own private balcony with amazing views made my stay memorable and made that a non-issue. I would definitely go back here.

We had so much fun staying here this week! We loved being right on the beach, having access to a pool, and other hotel amenities, and being close to all the downtown activities, restaurants and shopping. The best of all the beach experiences in one visit!! Great location, and the most hospitable staff around!

Our 3 day stay in late September was very pleasant and relaxing. Once I got home, I realized that I left my kindle there and called to see if they can locate it. Dean B. answered my call and assured me that he will personally communicate it to the personnel and if found , he will place it in Lost & Found. I must say that Dean B. from Security Department was very professional yet very friendly and provided an excellent customer service. He left me a couple of voicemails letting me know that the team found my missing item. When I called back, he gladly arranged shipping the item back to me. The outstanding service that he provided sealed the deal for me and I will certainly return to stay at this resort. Thank You Dean B. – You were awesome!!! Surf & Sand Resort is lucky to have

We made a dinner reservation at Splashes. While having dinner we observed at least 90% of the people not wearing masks walking around the hotel, walking in from the pool area through the restaurant, in the restaurant, bathrooms, getting in the elevators, etc. I expressed my concern to the dining room manager named Sam and his response was that they cannot force people to wear masks. The hell they can't. A customer walked up to the blonde hostess at Splashes and said sorry I forgot my mask. The hostess said, oh it's okay. No, it's not okay. This hotel/restaurant only cares about the $$$$. They could care less about your health, my health, their employees health. We cancelled a reservation we had at the hotel after learning that masks are not enforced. They have also lost a
