I spent a relaxing birthday weekend with my sisters at the Surf and Sand in February. I always love being so close to the water, and you can't beat the sunsets by the firepits. I also had the sweetest in room dining personal. His name was Romey. When he found out it was my birthday, he made a special trip...

Love, love, love the Surf & Sand! The best views in Laguna Beach and the most helpful & friendliest staff around!

I had an amazing time at the surf and sand resort. I took my family for 2 nights in the ocean view towers and had an amazing view all day long. We needed to get away and the staff members at surf and sand made it feel like we were in paradise. Kaweo is super cool and very knowledgeable about...

I got engaged on Valentine's Day. I planned my entire event at the Surf and Sand Resort, starting with dinner at Splashes (where I made my proposal, which she accepted!) and ending in a beautiful 9th floor jacuzzi tub room overlooking the ocean. I had specifically reserved the tub room when I called, but somehow there was a mixup and...

When we first checked in we were put in room 314. I think this room has to be the worst room in the hotel. It is right behind the pool, the view is completely blocked by the pool setup. It's also really loud right by the pool (ground level). We called over to the front desk and they were very...

If a guest is interrupted in the evening during their stay so security can figure out (their initiating) what guest is smoking very potent marijuana which permeates the halls, the guest whose room is being used and therefore is inconvenienced for an hour should receive some...any compensation or demonstration of gratitude.
