We stayed at the Surf and Sand for five nights beginning on Valentine's Day.
After reading some of the previous comments, I was skeptical about staying there. But we had an excellent experience.
The location is unbelievable - right at the ocean's edge, with all rooms having a balcony overlooking the water.
We did not find any of the previously posted comments to be true. The staff was very cordial and helpful; the food and drinks were first rate; the room was beautiful; and there were some nice touches that made the hotel seem even more welcoming, such as an ihome in the room, a note left in your room every night informing you about the time for high and low tide the next day, free coffee and LA Times every morning, free bottled water as you depart, and tiny seashells provided for you to include in your letters home.
The $27 a night for parking was steep, but we can live with that, given the luxurious and relaxing time provided by this first rate hotel.
You really have to look hard to find something to complain about.
We'd go again in a second.
