After a disappointment on Coronado Island, I promptly booked the Surf and Sand in Laguna as the off season price was competitive. With a room located right on the beach and all the attractions in Laguna, its hard to beat the Surf and Sand for price/quality return on investment. The rooms have LCD flat televisions, in room movies you can order, plus a dvd player. There is a business center on site if you need to print items. If you can get a corner room, its a plus. We stayed on the top floor floor with a corner view and had great views of the Pacific Ocean and Northern beaches. The only comment on the Surf and Sand is that it looks like after the last time I was here four years ago it could use new carpet and some paint touch up in the restrooms and on some doors. The overall property is still one of the best values in Laguna. Its not the Montage or the Ritz but its a great quiet retreat beachfront that is hard to beat for under $400 per night. They do tag on an additional parking fee that is steep like most OC hotels. Location is hard to beat! The staff is helpful, friendly. They stock your room with Aveda products. The bed is pretty comfortable, the sound of the ocean is tranquilizing. The Spa is really great, they do a nice job on massages and facials. the work out room is smaller but modern and adequate for a really great work out. If you book during cold weather, request an additional space heater for your room, as they are not designed for inadvertent weather. You can book rooms that also have fire places. In the winter, the pool is heated to 80 degrees according to the pool attendant.
