Welcoming/friendly staff; falling asleep to the waves; enjoying the comfortably heated pool; walking along the beach; walking to local restaurants...the reasons to revisit are endless!! It’s pricey, but well worth it and likely my go-to local vacation spot. I can’t WAIT to go again.

My family, 2 elementary-age children and my wife and I were greeted and sought after with impeccable and perfectly respectful service from the time we checked in until the time we checked out. We were sad to depart. However, we will surely be back again!

Stayed in a Surfside room and the view was breathtaking. Loved coffee on the balcony at sunrise and a glass of wine at sunset. Amazing staff! Fabulous restaurant! Close walk to shops, trolley and other beach areas-Crescent Bay Beach, Victoria Beach and Heisler Park, for example.

The Surf and Sand has been a favorite place for us for 25 years. They keep up the quality and amenities. Beautiful location. Beautiful rooms. Oceanfront and wonderful sound of surf. We tried out a new model room. It’s going to be great. We’ll be back again.

This place was extraordinary. I was a first-time guest this week. The staff is fun and low-key, the food is amazing, the room was amazing (Surfside King), the beach is great (dogs allowed), not a single hiccup. Two weeks ago I stayed at Montage which was three times the price and nothing worked properly. The only difference between this place and the really expensive resorts is that, here, you put the towel over the poolside lounge chair yourself. (Gasp!) I can't wait to go back. Read less
