My wife and I stayed for three nights in September. This hotel has incredible potential. The ocean front room was as close to the ocean as possible.

My wife and I stayed for three nights in September. This hotel has incredible potential. The ocean front room was as close to the ocean as possible. From our balcony it was fabulous to watch the surfers and the waves crashed right below us. The main restaurant had a nice ambience and you could hear and see the waves. The food was reasonably good. We enjoyed the pool with it’s sweeping views of the ocean. On the downside, the rooms and hallways are in serious need of a full renovation. The bathroom was not even near five star standards. Additionally, the pool is quite small and is was difficult to find shade or available lounge chairs (even during COVID). The location was excellent. When this hotel gets a seriously needed face lift, it’s going to be extraordinary. However, it’ll probably be double the price when that occurs. Read less

Surf breaks within 20 feet of the room we stayed in . 413 surf side. We got up at 4 to watch the waves.(the lights are pointed out to the waves and it lights up softly) very relaxing to watch the sunrise or sunset. Only room we have stayed at that was almost better that walking around Laguna beach. We stayed in the room more than normal.

Everything was perfect from arrival to departure. The team at Surf + Sand take incredible pride in their job, the property and making sure each guest has an exceptional experience. The only downside was having to depart. Can't wait to get back here.

The Surf and Sand in Laguna is the place to be! The room was beautiful, very clean and comfortable. Anahit from the gift shop was so sweet and was extra helpful as well as Tomohiro from the front desk. Truly enjoyed my stay!
