“Beautiful rooms right over the sand!”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

My husband and I stayed here last week for a week for 7 night. This is the second time we have stayed at the Surf an Sand and enjoy everything about it! The king oceanfront rooms are beautiful, are decorated in pleasant sand, cream and sea green colors and are hanging right out over the beach! The roar of the ocean is so loud that unless you like the sound of crashing waves you may find it too loud! Not us, that is why we go to the beach! Also the deck off of your room is nicely furnished with comfortable attractive furniture. Another plus is the complimentary coffee in the downstairs coffee shop or lobby, so no need for a coffeemaker in your room. The staff couldn't be friendlier and of course there is no shortage of things to do in Laguna Beach and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Small fridge in room. Wine and water glasses in room. Be sure to try the downstairs beachside bar an...

My husband and I have been coming to the Surf and Sand for 28 years. We've traveled all over the world, but this hotel continues to be our #1 choice for a relaxing get-a-way. Sitting on the balcony and watching the sunset while enjoying a glass of wine with the waves crashing beneath us, is what it's all about.

Oceanfront rooms, great meeting space, good food, nice staff... you'll be hard-pressed to find better space in southern CA. The hotel rooms are spacious and modern, and every room has a view of the water. Balconies are great too.

My husband and I stayed at the Surf and Sand for a conference. The experience was first-rate from start to finish. Staff is welcoming and knowledgeable, rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, food is excellent (although pricey). Several world-travelers at the conference said they had never stayed anyplace where they were so close to the ocean. At high-tide, we watched from our balcony as a seal swam past about 100 yards away. In the late mornings, we watched dolphins and one afternoon we saw a whale surfacing - all from the hotel. (The hotel provides ear plugs for those who find crashing waves less than restful at night.) Restaurant is lovely and excellent, but be prepared to part with some money. We spent $250 for a meal including salads, main course, dessert and a bottle of wine. Overall, we would definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view but some overlook the pool. The Surfside building is right on the ocean...

We were concerned when we found the hotel located directly in a bustling area right on the Pacific Coast Highway, but from the minute we entered the lobby of the hotel, our worries proved unwarranted. The reception was warm, friendly and helpful and our room was a gem--well appointed, comfortable, with a balcony framed by palm trees and providing a direct view of the ocean. We slept with the balcony doors open so we could hear the sounds of the ocean through our plantation shutters. We had a delightful lunch and absolutely everyone we encountered was helpful and nice. Somehow our room was always cleaned or turned down for the night while we were gone without ever disturbing us. One evening when we drove up just before sunset and discussed our regret at not having any wine so that we could enjoy the view from our balcony, the valet somehow "found" a bottle of pinot noir and a cork screw which he presented to us. We will definitely return to this hotel!

Room Tip: An ocean facing room is a must at this hotel.
