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.

Ocean Front is the Biggest Plus. Clean Beach. Room Shower is Tiny and located w Toilet. Was clean but not what I’d expect for this Price Range. No Air Conditioner and at times can be a issue even though its almost winter. Sink was plugged up and Shower would not drain. They corrected but of course there high cost does not allow you to look past issues we had to deal with. Overall it’s a nice hotel with room for improvements.

Everything was as we hoped from check-in through check out. Courteous, well informed, efficient and responsive personnel at all point of contact, i.e,, valet, front desk, restaurant, housekeeping, etc. But very friendly and not the least bit stuffy. We fully enjoyed our seventh floor deluxe tower king. Spacious, well designed as well as nicely furnished and decorated. The only improvement might have been two bathroom sinks and six or eight inches added to the height of the balcony railing . . . it's a long ways down. Proximity to the ocean was the draw of the Sand & Surf for us and we weren't disappointed in the least. We could look straight out at the surf and ocean and straight down at the beach. When the sun was fully out in the morning (after a leisurely late breakfast) the view of the turquoise or aquamarine waves was truly amazing. One morning there was a school of silver colored fish of unknown species (perhaps 16" long) swimming across the curl of the waves. Though we have spent much time at the ocean in various parts of the world neither of us had seen anything like this except on film. Very neat. A "wine hour" spent on the balcony at sunset was equally rewarding . . . haven't ever seen Catalina Island from a comparable vantage point . It was interesting seeing the sun set behind the island while lighting up the clouds over it. Might have been prettier just seeing it set into ocean but not much. We were satisfeid. We plan to return.

Sand and Surf Hotel has it all figured out. You will feel special from the movement you arrive. It is centrally located and has a beautiful beach! Pool and bar and restaurant are top notch! Love this place and plan to return every year!

On most occasions, checking into a hotel and staying in the room is an ultimate no-no. When there is so much out there to explore, how could you confine yourself to a one room, filled with three other people. Alas, this was the case with Surf and Sand Resort. We checked in, entered our new oasis, and were amazed. The hotel sits right over to the crashing waves of the Pacific, which prompted us to open the door to the balcony, along with the entrance door and let the sound of the waves breaking and the breeze envelope the room. I collapsed in the very comfortable arm chair on the balcony and opened my book, warmed by the January sun. It was almost too warm out there, but I corrected my spoiled self and reminded myself that there are people back east who would sell a kidney to be in my place right then. I read for about an hour, accompanied by the sound of the ocean just beneath me. Heaven. Around 5, the fam decided to go on a walk on the beach, and we discovered a great rock formation just a few hundred yards south of the hotel. The sun setting just behind Catalina Island just in the distance offshore was a special treat. We returned back to the room and ordered an especially delicious artisanal cheese platter for an hour d'oeuvre. We all raved over the raw honey that was served along side the delicious fruits and cheeses. Such a treat. The charming town of Laguna Beach was just a short walk down the road, but if you can get an Uber, it will save you a 20 minute walk. We made our way down there for dinner and had a fun bite to eat. Overall, this place has been one of my most favorite over-night jaunts we have taken in a long, long time. Pro-tip, search Hotwire for hotels in Laguna Beach and cross reference with Trip Advisor on how many people have reviewed it, you'll most likely be able to find it for cheap (relatively speaking) like we did.

We had the absolute best Anniversay overnight getaway at Surf & Sand Resort! Sharon our concierge/check-in attendant helped make our stay at the Surf & Sand absolutely amazing! We had the most beautiful oceanfront room that she upgraded us to & made our stay extra special with several added bonuses that made all the difference. Our room was gorgeous & had the most stunning ocean view. We enjoyed a wonderful bottle of champagne & chocolate dipped strawberries as we watched the stunning sunset over the Pacific Ocean on our beautiful balcony. I can still hear those mesmerizing ocean waves calming every part of our body & soul. Such a romantic overnight getaway! Can't wait to return to the Surf & Sand for our Anniversay next year! Highly recommend this beautiful resort to everyone! Prepare to experience the upmost in luxury!
