Very nice hotel right on top of the sand, gorgeous private beach with the sound of the waves crashing outside your patio door. My wife, the organization is conference I attended, and myself will all likely return over the years.

You can't beat hearing the lull of the ocean as you fall asleep and wake up; you can't beat waking up right on the water either...no sidewalk, no patio, nothing. This place is amazing. We've been here before and loved it so much, we had to come back, but this time we had a little one with us. We had...

If you want to be right on the sand, then right on the sand you'll be. This place couldn't be better located. All rooms have ocean views. The Staff is super friendly and the rooms and quite big and comfortable. There's a pool perched up on a deck overlooking the ocean and the sand is literally underneath the resort. You...

We stayed mid-week for two nights at this resort for a Birthday/Anniversary celebration. It was our first time there and we were so delighted we chose Surf and Sand. We checked in with Kevin at the front desk and needless to say, he took total care of us! The upgraded room was more than what we could've asked for. The...

Feels like a far away vacation spot when only a 45 minute drive from home. Love the oceanfront room with waves crashing below. Room very comfortable and amenities nice. Love the restaurant, Splashes for lunch or dinner. Close to downtown, can catch the trolley across the street.

This was our second stay at the Surf & Sand and we were again delighted. Only an hour from our home, this has quickly become our favorite local place to go when we need an escape. The entire property is inviting and beautifully decorated. Add to that the never ending rhythm of the ocean and it doesn't get any better.
