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.

We’re checking out tomorrow morning and sad to go. The Surf & Sand is everything a Hotel should be, great location, great service and a uniqueness that we really enjoyed. Reading bad reviews on this hotel about it not being clean or poor customer service, we found the complete opposite. The service was impeccable, every one of the staff members, from the front desk, to pool staff to housekeeping to valet, we met here were incredibly friendly, genuine and personable, they’ve done a great job hiring. Our room was perfect, stayed in 415, the beach right below the balcony. The room was spotless, the hotel was spotless and so nicely kept. We are traveling with a two year old and they even set up safety netting on the balcony for us. If you’re travelling with kids the beach is right there. The pool is a bit small, but lots of lounge area, lots of towels and pool was perfect temp and saltwater, super nice. Pool staff service was on point, area was always kept very tidy. We didn’t eat at the hotel, went out and checked out some small restaurants nearby, didn’t have a bad meal in Laguna Beach. Thoroughly pleased with our stay here and we stay at a lot of hotels. Would highly recommend this place, lots of fun and we will 100% be back for a visit!

Surf and Sand Resort does not disappoint. This was our first stay in Laguna, although we have been to many other towns in Southern California, so this is not out first rodeo in trying to land at a place that has a complete boutique resort feel.... and this place is just that. Full service at the pool with an amazing view of the ocean. Rooms are oversized and very comfortable. Light down comforters in the beds with nice down pillows. Ocean views from every room as I understand it. Our room was in the tower on the first floor. Yes you can hear the ocean all day and night with the sliding glass door closed. I have read reviews with complaints about the sound of the ocean, but my opinion is... if you don’t like the sound of the ocean you should try going to Kansas. This place has a 5 star feel for 3 star pricing. Definitely the best value in Laguna.

If you desire a beautiful resort located right on the beach, look no further, the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach, California, sits oceanfront with the most amazingly stunning view of the ocean from your balcony. This vacation getaway is on our "must go" list at least three times a year! The resort is the home of the phenomenal Splashes restaurant and bar where you can view the crashing ocean waves while enjoying splendid food and drinks. It's perfect whether you want a snack or a full course meal, you will be impressed! Pacific Perk boasts delicious lattes along with a variety of wonderful food selections to start your day. 1555 is also a great option for food and drink! The resort has a wonderful gift shop with an excellent selection; I always return home with many purchases. The spa is beautiful for a relaxing massage or facial and they also have nail services if you desire a beautiful mani-pedi. With all of this splendor, you will truly be in paradise; this along with their unbelievably gracious staff, makes this a must for a dream vacation retreat!

We recently ventured to Laguna for a Long Weekend in SOCAL...we got all the great food and the best service. This boutique hotel reminds me of the hospitality experience I receive at a Chick-Fil-A, top notch and never overstated. This property is true luxury, well maintained and has the best concierge who is only a text away. I recommend this place for a quick getaway or longer stay. Thankfully we were able to enjoy most of the onsite amenities including the spa, the restaurant and the coffee bar / wine lounge. The views were spectacular and the rooms were huge. I highly recommend staying in the tower and the Splunches Package from the spa. Perfect pairing for the best weekend! Not to mention the best eats!

I was here to produce a show The Pelican Ballroom for a client and was blown away by how beautiful of a place this was. The staff is super friendly and gave me great recommendations for places to grab a drink. Unfortunately, I couldn’t leave for my drink and had to settle for Splashes. Now I know why Splashes is one of the top rated restaurants in Laguna Beach. The food and drinks were amazing. I’m taking my wife back here for our anniversary. Cheers!
