A special shout out to David Barnes at Splashes for ensuring our team had an amazing dinner experience. Friendly, fun, and knowledgeable! Also, Sandra Bernard at the concierge desk was just wonderful, attentive, and friendly. I can't wait to go back and recommend it to anyone whether for personal trips or business! Read less

Booked this place as a getaway to relax after my business trip. I wanted a view of the coast and ocean, did my research, and could only find it at this resort versus other beaches. The actual stay did not disappoint at all! There was so much thought in the service, and making sure guests felt welcomed and comfortable throughout their stay. It was a luxurious yet homely resort. Not to mention the amazing view. Perfect was meant for this. It was nice that check out time was 12pm, so that I can have more time with enjoying the view. It was a very relaxing stay. Bed linens were very soft and silky. Read less

After a stressful year my husband and I decided to spend a night in this lovely hotel.. we were greeted by a lovely uk 🇬🇧 lady doing the concierge called Sandra. She asked if special occasion we told her just relaxing. Sandra was full of knowledge about our location obviously knew loads about Laguna beach and surrounding areas. We needed reservations for dinner and Sandra happily made our reservations for us and we had a delicious meal at Nicks. All staff at the surf and sand were polite, friendly and helpful. This hotel is fabulous and highly recommend staying here. Thank you Sandra for making our stay stress free. Read less

This is a great resort to visit, the staff and amenities are amazing, and you won’t find a better location. You can walk to everything from the resort. The spa is also excellent, I would recommend the mineral bath and massage to everyone.
