This place has to be seen to be believed - the waves come right up and touch the hotel at high tide! Superb rooms, superb views, superb food and helpful and friendly staff. A bit pricey but overall excellent and one of our favourite hotels in the world.

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view. We chose a room on a high floor as the crashing of waves at night is quieter up there.

Don't let the PCH frontage fool you. This hotel is right on the main street but miles and miles from the rest of the world. The suites with the sun decks are posh and airy. The service has been impeccable since Jon first showed us to the room. Breakfast was delicious and unique...who puts dates in an omelette...?...but it works. A fresh flower arrangement, not just some stems, was on the desk with a card. Ashley at the beach will bring you whatever you want (as long as it isn't alcoholic...apparently that's illegal on CA beaches). Seafood salad was light with lemon vinegrette, while the caesar salad was memorable...and when's the last time you could say that? The best part? Some really scary looking rocks sort of block the way to the main Laguna waterfront, and most people don't venture our way. I was somehow, risking life and limb, able to get across. Okay, truth be told, it was easy as pie, but don't tell everyone. It was a pleasant walk to Las Brisas. We also went into the main Laguna area for dinner, just walking a few blocks south...very easy with sidewalks the whole way. Go down the beach south and through the arch to see the water bursting through the rocks and explore the interesting tidal pools.

Room Tip: Melissa gave us terrific tips and options when we called. I loved having a sun deck.

This is the most beautiful hotel!! It is our favorite place. Every room has a fantastic ocean view, but we prefer the Tower rooms. The waves literally crash right outside your window. The food and service by the pool are outstanding, especially Kyle and Mitchell. They are so friendly and knew us by name every morning when we went to get our spots. Splashes restaurant is the most romantic place to have dinner. Food is amazing and the ambiance is even more spectacular. If you want to celebrate a special occasion or just relax and be pampered then this is definitely the place for you!!

I came here for a small conference which meant we were inside much of the time. But when we weren't, we had the most beautiful views of the ocean imaginable. Everything (except the conference room) is set up to take maximum advantage of the location--even the placement of the bed in the room! The pool and spa look out on the sand. After walking down the beach to town and back, we slept with the window open so we could hear the ocean.
In addition, the food from the restaurants was delicious and interesting and all the staff, from the valets to the waiters and front desk staff, we're helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Pick a room in 400 series and you'll be overlooking the sand.

We wanted a close by location for a 3 day anniversary trip. I had been told of the luxurious accommodations and fantastic location of the Surf and Sand from a business associate so we decided to give it a try.
Located on the 101 in Laguna Beach this Resort is right on the sand. There was a slight mix up with the rate of our stay but that was quickly taken care of by a very friendly and helpful desk staff.
We stayed in a Tower King room that faces the ocean. We were on the 4th floor and the view was absolutely breathtaking!! The room itself is spacious and VERY clean. There was a welcome fruit and cheese plate that we enjoyed with a bottle of wine we brought with us on the balcony.
I absolutely LOVE the sound of the ocean...it puts me to sleep and I love waking up to it. For those who might think it a bit loud they even provide ear plugs on the nightstand.
Every staff person we encountered during our stay was a delight.
Other than the fabulous location on the beach, the location is walking distance to many great restaurants, shops and even a grocery store. We never used our car at all during our stay.
Room service is pricey but the food is very good...we especially loved the Calamari.
Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Love the Tower rooms that face the ocean.
