I had an amazing time at the surf and sand resort. I took my family for 2 nights in the ocean view towers and had an amazing view all day long. We needed to get away and the staff members at surf and sand made it feel like we were in paradise. Kaweo is super cool and very knowledgeable about...

I got engaged on Valentine's Day. I planned my entire event at the Surf and Sand Resort, starting with dinner at Splashes (where I made my proposal, which she accepted!) and ending in a beautiful 9th floor jacuzzi tub room overlooking the ocean. I had specifically reserved the tub room when I called, but somehow there was a mixup and...

When we first checked in we were put in room 314. I think this room has to be the worst room in the hotel. It is right behind the pool, the view is completely blocked by the pool setup. It's also really loud right by the pool (ground level). We called over to the front desk and they were very...

If a guest is interrupted in the evening during their stay so security can figure out (their initiating) what guest is smoking very potent marijuana which permeates the halls, the guest whose room is being used and therefore is inconvenienced for an hour should receive some...any compensation or demonstration of gratitude. Even a cookie would suffice. It was confusion and...

For some reason I expected the S&S to be really luxurious. I think they were trying for it to be, but it falls short. That said, The room was gorgeous with an amazing view. The restaurant for breakfast was small but right on the ocean. We ate in the bar one night which was the best. cozy with tables right...

The first night we stayed in a lower one bed suite and someone was walking/pacing frantically on top of us all night. The person started banging around at 2 am and never stopped.

Dear Ness & Bill, On behalf of the entire team, I'd like to apologize for the lack of sleep and frustration you experienced during your first night on property. It is very disheartening to know that it caused you to have a groggy day and I can imagine that it was especially concerning as you were traveling with children. Again,...

We are coming to the Surf and Sand next week and I can't be more excited! This will be our 3rd visit here and it's truly my favorite getaway place!
