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 booked this resort on line and the hotel advertises a lower level suite ocean view. However, a lower level suite is not on the first floor but is considered not on their top floors. Our suite #442 looked out on top of the building below us and had not beach view at all and limited ocean view of what could be seen beyond the building. Our room had no air conditioning and was hot during the day. The beach is dirty and the sand is dark like mud. The swimming pool is very small and over crowded. We asked to be moved to a more accommodating room and was told there were no more rooms. We elected to check out and go down the street to the Montage. If you are trying to decide between these two hotels there is no comparison. If you are an experienced traveler and like the finer things at a hotel then the Surf & Sand is not your place. Many of the areas were dirty and need of repair. This hotel is just average and more like a 3 star hotel.

Loved this resort! It very well kept and has a friendly staff that's very helpful with recommending things to do in the area. I enjoyed the massage in the spa and relaxed and enjoyed the amazing sunset.

When I was a kid in the 1980's and 1990's, flying to Laguna Beach from Portland, Oregon, to spend Summers with my Mom, we would always go to the Surf & Sand for breakfast at least once. She loved the place, and would stay there a few times per year as a mini vacation. She was a very stylish woman, and after staying at the Surf and Sand recently, I can see why she loved it so much. My wife and I were recently in Laguna visiting family over a long July 4th weekend with our 1 year old son. Our family gave us an amazing gift, and told us that they would watch our son for a night so we could have a date night. WOW! BEST GIFT EVER! We decided to stay at the Surf & Sand for the night, and we are so happy we did. First of all, the Surf & Sand is in a great location. It is on a beautiful stretch of coastline, and it is also an easy walk to cute local shops, bars and restaurants. Plus, the Laguna Beach Trolley stops right out front, and it is a free ride North to downtown Laguna Beach, or South to the Ritz Carlton at Salt Creek. During our stay we walked to few shops where my wife found a great new dress, had mojitos at the Rooftop Lounge (Great view), and caught a solid reggae band at Mozambique across the street. Checking in was easy, and all the employees were fantastic throughout our stay ( Thanks guys!). The resort feels modern, luxurious, yet beachy. We walked to our room, opened the door, and were instantly impressed. The room was clean, well styled, and had an incredibly comfortable king bed that looked out over the blue Pacific. The bathroom was nice as well. The balcony overlooked the beach and had comfy chairs and a lounger to relax in. We spent the night with our sliding door open, listening to the waves pound the sand, and watching the moon reflect off the ocean. While we were there we explored the property. The pool was amazing, just right off the beach with plenty of chairs and places to lounge. There is also a nice area with tables and fire pits on the property where you can relax and enjoy a cocktail. We had dinner and drinks at Splashes while we were there, which was top notch, but that is for another review (try the octopus)! Even though we only spent 1 night there, we left feeling refreshed and relaxed. The Surf & Sand is definitely the place to stay in Laguna, stylish, friendly, with amazing views and people, I see why my Mom loved it so much. I want to thank everyone for making our stay so wonderful, we have found in our travels that people are what really make resorts stand out. We can't wait to come back for a long weekend.

Stayed here for a second time recently and enjoyed our stay again very much! The resort is very nice and comfortable. Excellent service and you can't beat the location - right on the beach! The food in the bar and restaurant is great. Will stay here again!

My family and I have been coming here every year since 1995. Once you step onto the property you're part of the Surf and Sand family. From the valet, to bellman, to the receptionist, and to housekeeping you get superior service. They remember your names and ask if they can make your stay any better. The property is in the ideal location but I believe most people want to feel special. Surf and Sand Resort does that effortlessly.
