This charming property is a great combination of fun and luxury. Staff is wonderful and grounds are very well kept. Be ware, small pool area is overrun by children in summer months, which families will love, couples looking to get away from kids will not..
The rooms are very well done and offer that perfect Beachy vibe and luxury feel that most love. Splashes Bar, below the restaurant, is a great little gem on the property. Great food, delicious drinks and killer views of the beach and ocean are served up in this fun little room below the pool deck.
If you are working while staying here be ware that WIFI is spotty and Verizon does not work at all in the rooms. Was this Surf N Sands way of telling me to stop working and enjoy the beach life? Maybe this is on purpose- Awesome!
The real draw of this property is its location- close to everything in Laguna, and directly on a wonderful swimming beach, but the reason I will return is the staff. The team of employees; housekeeping, valet, belldesk, room service runners, restaurant servers, concierge, front desk, reservations- are all very well trained and show pride in their work and in their hotel- something I have seen lacking at other properties in the area.

Room Tip: Stayed in the North Ocean Front Rooms- very nice rooms, literally directly over the beach- Buyer be ware that there is no air conditioning in these rooms. This is not a problem for most, if the weather is cool, but the waves at night are very loud- and your choice could be between closing the sliding door and sleeping in a quiet and warm room (ceiling fan and floor fan do help to keep things coolish) or enjoy the cool night air and the loud crashing waves. Ear plugs are provided to help cut down the noise!! The balconies are large and furnished with an oversized chair and ottoman and two additional chairs and small bistro sized table. Views are second to none.

My husband and I spent our anniversary at the Surf & Sand Resort. We were greeted by a bottle of champagne and his n hers cupcakes, and a handwritten note wishing us a happy stay. Every detail was lovely - from the beautiful rooms (we stayed in the basic, but it was far from basic!) that included a balcony overlooking the ocean, to relaxing by the pool side, wonderful massages, and a drink at Splashes, the resort's restaurant. We were tempted to stay for dinner but also wanted to explore Laguna Beach during our short stay. Downtown was a short and pleasant walk. The next morning we had our breakfast in the terrace and basked in what was to us a perfect getaway. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean views, so you can't go wrong!

From the sound of the waves to the smell of the see breeze, this is the most relaxing resort in Orange County. Just steps from the beach with a beautiful restaurant and pool. The staff here is always so friendly and welcoming. The resort has this amazing "beachy" feel to it. The restaurant is beautiful and open to the ocean, there isn't a bad table in the place. It is a very laid back, relaxing environment.

Room Tip: The lower the floor you are on the louder the sound of the waves. They can get very loud at night if you are a light sleeper, although I tend to find them relaxing, others I've heard complain about the noise level.

The oceanfront location is to die for.....any closer your getting wet! But honestly, the best part is the service...the people anticipate your needs very well! A bellman in the parking area saw me with an ice bucket looking around....he found me and guided me to the ice.....simple yes, but how many would seek you out to help? This is the attitude throughout....over the top no attitude...pro's. We will be back for many more anniversary's. Thank you for making our time so memorable! Ken in the Splash's restraunt is such a treasure....loves his job, and is always smiling.....Makes a great martini as well.....Til next time....all the best

Room Tip: Rooms on 7th floor oceanfront can see the rays swim by in the surf line....& the dolphins 50' off the shore......North side gets amazing sunsets.....this time we were south side...nice coastal rockscapes views...either are special!
