Surf & Sand Resort in Laguna Beach, California

Orange County's well-bred Laguna Beach is the backdrop to Surf & Sand Resort, which feels secluded despite its central location. The Pacific Ocean glimmers in newly renovated rooms and suites – a palate of cool whites, beige and aquamarine blends with the view seen through floor-to-ceiling windows. Chic cabanas flank a beachside infinity pool, and original artwork supports Laguna’s thriving art community.

Recline under a goose down comforter as dawn breaks over the ocean. Take a morning stroll to town – stop for coffee at a sidewalk café and browse the artwork on Gallery Row. Revive with a superfruit martini made with açai spirits and blueberry vodka on an oceanfront patio with glass walls. Finish the evening with Carlsbad black mussels in a vin jaune broth.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 5 days ago

We truly love this hotel. It's our second visit, this time for a week, and all of the previous exceptionally high standards were met again. The rooms are well appointed, beautiful and comfortable. The views as breathtaking as we remembered. We were welcomed back and always felt well looked after, particularly by the concierge ladies Diane and Sharon. It must also be said that every single member of staff encountered anywhere in the hotel were helpful, happy and polite. Pool service was superb and we saw whales and dolphins every day. The terraces are lovely for relaxing by day or night and perfect for fire pit smores This hotel has got it all right. The restaurant and bar are excellent too. We hope to go back, as it always hurts to leave this special place. Out two sons who are 10 and thirteen love it as much as us parents, the ocean and pool are all we all need. Also good shops and restaurants near by if you want them. We hope to go back again.

The view is amazing, but beyond the hotel rests on its laurels by touting its spectacular location as its ace in the hole. As far as the resort itself, it is a hodgepodge of different outdated buildings that make the journey to/from your room like a consistent maze. The rooms themselves sport small, outdated bathrooms with very few amenities (hope you don't want mouthwash!). The shower in our room was smaller than those in most cruise ship cabins. Most shockingly, the hotel DOES NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING!!!! How, in 2017, can a hotel in Southern California not offer air conditioning? That should really be disclosed. As someone who likes the room relatively cool, especially when I sleep, this was a nightmare. During the daylight hours the room temperatures can be relatively brutal. The staff obviously gets this complaint regularly and are quick to suggest the ceiling fan. They should probably be aware that warm air swirling around doesn't necessarily make it cooler. The oceanfront rooms are literally above the ocean. It's a pretty amazing sight to wake up and see. However, if you are sensitive to noise, beware that the tide at this particular beach makes the waves incredibly loud. Every minute or so you hear what sounds like an earth shattering explosion in your room but it's just another whitecap hitting the sand. While some may enjoy the white noise, the hotel clearly knows its a problem as they provide ear plugs next to the beds, rather than spending the money to put in proper double paned class which would reduce the sound. There are some nice common areas, including a nice pool area, but the walkways, lack of common nice lobby and outdoor hallways outside the rooms give you the distinct feeling you're in a very nice motel, rather than a four or five store hotel. Adding to this feeling is the fact the hotel does not offer any kind of room service outside of the restaurants normal operating hours (10pm most nights). Having arrived at 10:30, we were starving and the best the front desk lady could suggest was "I think there's a Taco Bell?" Really, that's the suggestion? Props to the valet guys as they were great and the hard working room service guy who we used on the second night, before their abrupt cutoff time. Anyways, if the rate is good and you're looking for the most impressive views with easy access to the beach then this might be a good option. If you're looking for true beachfront luxury, look elsewhere.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The views and pool area are really nice. Our room was very average. This hotel is like a maze and there are a lot of steps involved in getting to your room. Our room looked like it needed a good cleaning and a coat of paint. Very noisy-we could hear the people talking in the room next door, the shower in the bathroom next door and people in the hall outside. It was very cold while we were there. The baseboard heater in the room did not keep our room warm, we called for a space heater and they brought us a fan. Room is an odd layout with the bed at an angle so room seems very small. Bathroom is extremely small. Single vanity. Bathtub has no surround and the tub was dirty. It was very slippery like there was sun tan oil that had not been cleaned off. Other than the view the room was terrible. Fake silk flowers. Seriously!! And don't even get me stated on the resort fee! Service and people who work here are nice and friendly.

This is in a great location right on the beach. My room was right off a large patio with floor to ceiling windows and an ocean view. The view was great, but the room was out of the way and it was a pain to haul the luggage there. It has a great oceanfront bar and pool. It is within walking distance of shops and fantastic Laguna Beach dining!

I cannot wait to return to California and can't imagine staying anywhere but Surf and Sand. EVERYTHING about the trip was amazing. We spend four days here and wish it was longer. Every person on staff was excellent.
