You know the Goldilocks fairytale? “Just Right” is the theme and Surf and Sand Resort is just that! If the Goldilocks story was about AMAZING it would be spot on! 1st is location, location, location and this place is AMAZING! It doesn’t just have ocean VIEW but because it’s LITERALLY ON THE OCEAN you also get ocean SOUNDS! Our 6th floor tower building room (lobby is on the 5th) had a BALCONY that was great to chill on and watch the sunset, the surf or the sand! We left the sliding door open all night and the ocean provided the background sleep sounds! Amenities, room size, everything was just right! As good as it gets with hotel and great walking distance to everything, I was surprised at how happy the staff was! Like everybody! Especially during CoViD crisis! They kept things CoViD safe including even the ability to text the hotel operator with your needs! Special shout out to Barbara Cargill, operator, who was disarmingly cheerful on the phone! Who gives a shoutout to the hotel operator? I could also name Adam at Valet & so many others! Like they all went to charm school! WE WILL BE BACK! Read less

We stayed at the surf and sand for 3 days during the week. It was more than I could have ever expected. I woke up many times during the first night just to see the ocean, we were on the 2nd floor and it was so close to our bedroom. We dine at their restaurant and enjoy the pool also. Everyone was so nice and went above and beyond to make our stay… Read more
