This is in a great location right on the beach. My room was right off a large patio with floor to ceiling windows and an ocean view. The view was great, but the room was out of the way and it was a pain to haul the luggage there. It has a great oceanfront bar and pool. It is within...

I cannot wait to return to California and can't imagine staying anywhere but Surf and Sand. EVERYTHING about the trip was amazing. We spend four days here and wish it was longer. Every person on staff was excellent.

Wonderful with or without kids. We've done both! You can sit at the pool right in front of the Pacific, watch your kids in the pool and swim in the ocean at the same time. You will never wait for a drink or poolside snacks. Wonderful rooms, restaurant excellent and you can walk to everything in Laguna!! Loved the on...

I heard about this resort for years, so I was excited to finally stay here. It was only for two nights (en route to another resort down south). We booked the day before, so our ocean view was quite restricted. The room, however, was quite lovely - especially the bed. We ate in the restaurants for breakfast and dinner. All...

20 years ago it was possible to build a hotel in Laguna Beach right on the ocean and expect that the proximity to the water would keep it cool, this is no longer the case. I'm so glad that I stayed in April and the weather was in the high 60s/low 70s otherwise this place would have been way too...

As far as we are concerned this is the number one resort in the world. Having traveled to most countries except Russia, this property is overall the best. Best Bar right on the Pacific Ocean. Exceptional dinning at Splashes Restaurant and same at the bar. Pool and the Ocean are to die for. Every room is on the Ocean View...

We stayed here for a couple of nights for a wedding. Location and service is good. The actual grounds need a bit more attention and upgrade. We used the pool, which was warm for this time of year and the service and drinks on the pool deck was exceptional. The bar is an excellent place to watch the sunset and...

We visited this resort for a wedding. The price we paid for the accommodations does not reflect the experience. This is probably good for tourists with families but not weddings The rooms are not ready until after 4 pm. Some do not have A/C. Although the staff were friendly, we were rushed for time between check in and the wedding.
