I went their with my boyfriend to celebrate his graduation. We purchased the 60th anniversary package where we received a 2 night stay, $60 credit to the spa or the restaurant Splashes, free breakfast, and daily gifts. We arrived early for R&R, the room was not ready so we waited about 4 hours by the water, that was a bummer, but received free drink coupons. When the room was ready, we were greeted with chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of bubbly, the bellman brought us an extra bottle too! The room was clean and beautiful, they have an Ipod hook up so that was exciting. Since we love the sound of the ocean, we slept with the windows open. Our room was above the pool on the 3rd floor, a great location and an amazing view. The only problem is that there was a bunch of foreign guests in the restaurant singing drunk songs at 12pm. We called the front desk twice and the singing and noise stopped! The 2nd day we received another gift ~ a bottle of white wine and fresh cheeses with crackers and grapes. We also received a surf and sand magnet and a sand bottle gift!
The restaurant was nice but very expensive, the food was delicious, especially the scallop dish. Breakfast was amazing as well. We really enjoyed sitting at the beach since there was a lot of kids by the pool. The hotel provides chairs and a umbrella where ever you wish to sit on the beach. No alcohol is served at the beach, but you are able to go to the hotel bar and order it yourself. The spa was nice, small, and intimate. I found there to be a lot of dust in the common areas but the massage room was clean and fresh smealling.
Overall, we both were pleased with the hotel and the location, I look forward to future trips to The Surf and Sand.
