"This resort has amazing views, and excellent facilities. We loved every minute of our stay there, and only wish the weather would have been a little nicer. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting the area!"

"Great resort - clean, right on the water, great restaurant, pool. But the best is the people. So helpful, so friendly, always addressed me by my name -WOW! So much fun to sit at the bar and watch high tide come in - almost reached the hotel! The kids loved the pool and the activities (s'mores at night were a big hit)"

Everybody talks about stunning views and breathtaking sunsets (all true!) but there is so much more I would like to point out about Surf and Sand. My family and I had such a great time and we could not be more pleased with our experience. It is perfectly situated on the ocean and only a few minutes from the center of town. From the moment we arrived we had a very positive first impression with such helpful and friendly staff at the Front Desk. The view from the room was gorgeous, not mentioning that we slept listening to the sound of the waves. We ordered breakfast in the room and the service was genuine and warm from our server, JD, who engaged in conversation with my children. The cherry on top was my relaxation time at the Aquaterra Spa, one of the best massages I've ever had. Thank you Surf and Sand team for such memorable time!

My husband heard about this place through a friend. He wanted to take me there for our 2nd wedding anniversary. I thought it was over our typical budget so I was hesitant, but I gave the go ahead because I knew my husband really wanted to go. When I called to make the reservation the woman was so nice and helpful. A few days later, we checked in and WERE BLOWN AWAY! This place is expensive but we now know why. The ocean is right below the balcony, every employee is very friendly and hospitable, the food and drinks at all the restaurants are amazing, the room is spacious, comfortable, elegant, and relaxing.... It was such a special and romantic anniversary! The "Night to Remember" package exceeded our expectations by far. Our waiter, Ryan, recommended delicious entrees and wines for dinner at the Splashes Restaurant. All views on entire property are breathtaking. Sharon, who checked us out also was amazing at her job and so warm. I CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK!! This stay rejuvenated my husband and I, and has on on cloud 9!!! Thank you so much Surf and Sand!!

First off view was OUTSTANDING! My husband and I were very well rested after being spoiled by friendly staff. Highly recommended for any type of stay business or personal but make sure to bring your bathing suite

This hotel is probably my favorite in the US. An amazing place at the beach, great food & drinks and (for the most part) friendly staff. We had a great suite at one of the top floors and a beautiful view of the Sea with amazing sunrises and sunsets every day of our stay. Splashes (the restaurant) offers a vibrant crowd and really great seafood choices (I am sure all the rest of the menu is great, too). I recommend it for couples to both hide away and be in the middle of a great and poche atmosphere. We will definitely come back.

Beautiful up scale full service hotel right on PCH in Laguna Beach. Rooms have amazing views overlooking the ocean. Staff was courteous, friendly and competent. Rooms were spacious with full amenities. Food was second to none. The British gals at concierge were a treat and very informative and helpful. Amazing hotel, amazing amenities and amazing staff. Right on the beach. Hotel heaven.

Could not be closer to the ocean. We came for a night mid week and got upgraded to a penthouse which was amazing. Didn't feel crowded even through they we're hosting a corporate event (or two?). We had lunch at the pool and dinner at the Splashes bar downstairs just feet above the beach. The whole property was clean, friendly, good food, and absolutely beautiful views.

What a beautiful place. My children and I needed a mini vacation. I never wanted to leave. From the moment we arrived we were treated not just as a guest but as family members. Dinner was amazing. Arriving to the most beautiful room with champagne on ice and a personal invite from the surf and sand famous chef to attend dinner was by far one of the best parts of the stay. My children and I were spoiled and after all we have been through it was a breathe of fresh air we needed. BIG THANKS TO SURF AND SAND and to a Kimberly a server in the restaurant.. You are amazing always going above and beyond with care and it shows if there were only more people in this world with that positive light things wouldn't be so dark!

I had a great visit at Surf and Sand! Stephanie was really nice at the front desk. She helped us find our way over to Splashes bar. The bar is gorgeous! It had a great view of the beach and the food was amazing. Kimmy was our server she was so sweet and recommended some great drinks and appetizers! She truly made our experience worth while!!

Heaven on earth. We visited the Surf and Sand for a family celebration. The entire staff from the concierge to room service to bell hops and valet were extremely helpful, friendly and cheerful.Our rooms were beautiful and the ocean setting could not have been more spectacular. We enjoyed drinks around the pool and time in the jacuzzi. With a one stay, we didn't have time to use the other amenities.Can't wait for our next visit.

My husband and I visited Laguna Beach for the first time. The Surf and Sand was wonderful! We stayed oceanfront and literally you are right on the ocean! Beautiful. The surf sounds are quite loud but we enjoyed it. The room was very clean and nice. Bed very comfortable. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Splashes was a great restaurant too. We sat outside on the patio area with the fire pits one evening too. It was overall a great experience and we can’t wait to go back!

"Our stay at the Surf and Sand was such a great experience from the moment we walked in. We got greeted by the friendly and sweet, Trish. I told them that it was my birthday and they made my stay extra special, by bringing chocolate covered strawberries and wine to the room as surprised gift. We at Splashes restaurant and the atmosphere was to die for; very intimate with a insane view. Looking forward to our next stay!"

"This hotel is a gem! Staff is amazing. Room was beautiful. View was incredible. Location is perfect. This is the perfect place for a family beach vacation. We spent four days at Disneyland prior to arriving and my 7 and 9 year old daughters seemed to like this better. The kids had little tents and sleeping bags during the stay. There was a large selection of kids movies for night. We all loved the pool and beach. We only left the hotel once during our stay to go on a dolphin safari. Otherwise, the kids wanted to be in the pool or on the beach. Can’t say enough good things about this resort!"

"World class location. Easy check-in. Pleasant staff. Cool bar and restaurant on first floor...try the chicken nachos. Easy beach access. Spacious clean rooms that are well-appointed with free WiFi. Mini bar and large TV. Toilet shower area on the small side. Interesting for a hotel that prides itself on being green we had to run both sinks about 5 minutes to get hot water..."

"Staying here was one of the most serene, peaceful and relaxing weekends I have had in a very very long time.It is rare where you visit a place and you feel like you get what you pay for but Surf & Sand will not disappoint! Extremely attentive staff, cleaners in room 2 times a day (left chocolates on bed - robe out - tranquil music playing from tv), wonderful food and a view that makes it even harder to say goodbye to. I stayed in a ocean front room and it was well worth it.Thank you S&S for this experience...I will be back!"

"Went here to celebrate a friend's 30th birthday. The waiters were all very friendly and helpful. We stayed so long, we moved tables twice, but the servers made us feel very welcome with no complaints. We were right on the water with a beautiful view. All in all, a fantastic way to spend a Sunday."

"My first time at Surf and Sand was for a sleepover birthday party in high school. It was over ten years ago and I still remember being amazed by the oceanfront front suite and having a great time with my friends with the sound of waves keeping us happy. Now as an adult, this is one of my favorite local resorts for a staycation. I'm really picky about hotels, but I've never ever had an issue here. Always get an oceanfront room, and ask for a corner suite! I don't swim so I don't go into the pool or the ocean, but even then I still have a lovely time watching the sunset from the pool and exploring the area. I love the masseuses at their spa. They're great at working with you to help you relax. As for food, there are so many restaurants close by, but the Splashes at the hotel serves great food! Five stars for overall greatness!"

We have come to the Surf and Sand for years, and never received the level of service we did from her. 10 star rating!! :)"

My husband surprised me this weekend for a relaxing long weekend at the Surf and Sand in Laguna Beach. From the time we drive up to the valet, checked in, ate at Splashes and ordered room service we were treated as royalty. We had an amazing Ocean view room! We will definitely be back. Thanks for making our stay very memorable.

Spacious, clean and entire staff (Front desk, restaurants, bell, turn down service, room service) are above and beyond nice. 5 Star hotel in my opinion and would stay here over Montage. Thank you!"

"I went to Splashes with my girlfriends for a bachelorette party brunch. We had a great time and loved every minute. This restaurant is at a hotel that overlooks Laguna Beach and the view is amazing. The service was great and prices were very reasonable for how great the restaurant was. We all really enjoyed our food and drinks. If I ever make it back that direction, it's definitely a stop on my list!"

"Had our wedding at this resort and had a wonderful time. The service is great and they even comped us an additional night. Personally, I love the fact that you can hear the ocean - but I understand that for some this might be a distraction for sleeping. I would close the door and it should be quiet enough to sleep. Everyone is most friendly from the valets, to the waiters at Splashes (the onsite cafe). We will definitely return one day to celebrate our anniversary."

"Let me start by saying this is the first time I have ever left a review so that in itself says a lot. I stayed at this resort for a week and I wished I could have stayed a month!!! I went with my now fiance and we had our best vacation ever!!! Everyone was extremely nice and went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of. The view from our room was amazing and the sound of the waves put us to sleep every night. My now fiance purposed to me on our balcony while the sun was setting and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect romantic setting. Thank you all staff from Surf and Sand for making this my most memorable vacation."

Our favorite staycation in SoCal I have been meaning to write this review for a while now. Hands down our favorite Oceanside hotel. Me and my husband have visited a few times now and it is always a wonderful experience. Such a treat everytime. We have the pleasure of working with Pamela on our bookings and she always does an amazing job organizing our stay. The rooms are perfection. Directly overlooking the ocean, you can't hear or see any neighbors. Just you and the ocean. It is the only place I stay where I don't want to leave the room. The pool and restaurant are also really nice. We frequently go to the pool for some drinks and lunch. Service is great and attentive, food is good too w nice portions. Once we check in, we never leave the hotel grounds during our stay it is so amazing. If you love to listen to the waves, the ocean and just relax from city life, this is the place. You will not be disappointed.

"Spent our anniversary weekend here and loved it. Our room was luxurious with a comfy bed and literally, it was like being on the beach because you could hear the surf all night. So relaxing. The room was just above the beach and surf. I can't imagine a better location in Laguna. We also shopped in the gift shop which was cute, got goodies in the attached coffee shop; loved the chocolate covered strawberries and zuchinni bread. We ordered room service breakfast one morning and it came quickly and was delicious. All the staff was very attentive; from being greeted and helped by the valet staff who were cordial and quick..."

"One of our favorite little getaways We absolutely love this hotel. Even though we live at the beach in Orange County, we will sneak away for a night or two alone at Surf & Sand. There is nothing like the sound of the waves on the beach as you sleep or grab a cocktail down at Splashes. The first time we stayed, I thought that the earplugs they leave by the side of your bed were a joke. But they are not! The waves can be so loud as you sleep that they can literally wake you up. It is amazing! Love love love"
