“Fabulous Property !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

We recently stayed at the Surf & Sand in Laguna Beach, California. This property is first class all the way around. The entire staff couldn't be more pleasing and helpful and our room and views were beyond our highest expectations. Treat yourself to a stay ~ you will leave with wonderful memories..............

Room Tip: We stayed in the 300 room area with full view of pool, sand & surf.....amazing!!!

I recently stayed 3-nights at the Surf and Sand for a business meeting. Overall, I was pleased with the hotel, staff, amenities, and the view -- boy, the view is fantastic! Every room seems to have an ocean view and small private balcony where you can watch the sunset and listen to the waves crashing on shore. Those waves, by the way, are almost literally right under your balcony when the tide is all the way in. The room was clean and well appointed, with a comfortable bed, large bathroom (with separate shower and tub), and ample closet space. My only gripe was that there was no air conditioning in the rooms. I was there during a warm spell in mid-January and it can get REALLY warm in those rooms when the afternoon sun is beating down. The only way to cool the room down is to open the sliding door to the balcony, but that doesn't really help when you're also trying to sleep. I'm was there by myself and am not comfortable leaving a door like that open at night, plus the waves are pretty loud at night (the hotel even provides earplugs for this reason). I know that air conditioning isn't always necessary but you would think that a hotel that charges nearly $300 a night would also offer that luxury. I loved the hotel otherwise, but don't know if I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms look at the ocean over the pool, while others are directly on the beach. Not sure if one...

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.
