The hotel

Spotting starfish in glimmering tide pools. Racing each other on Beach Cruiser bicycles. Toasting marshmallows for s’mores around beach bonfires. Taking starlit strolls on the sands, guided by the lantern from your suite. When you stay at Surfsand Resort, it’s not long before you forget life back home and start reconnecting (that said; this beachfront hideaway does come with free WiFi too). The owners haven’t just thought of the big things, like the heated pool and room service from Wayfarer Restaurant & Lounge next door, they’ve also arranged complimentary treats like freshly baked cookies and saltwater taffy, and seasonal weekly popcorn carts, ice cream socials, and ‘Weenie Roasts’. And the location’s sublime – with views over the ocean, it’s on a beach just a stroll from the downtown restaurants, including the Surfsand owners’ own Public Coast Brewing Company.

My wife and I have come here twice for two occasions. The rooms are wonderful, and very clean. The location is beautiful, and it is one of the nicest pool and hot tubs I have ever experienced at a hotel. Wonderful stay!

Surfsand Resort is a wonderful place to stay! The best location right on the beach and easy to walk to different places.Even had a beertasting in the lobby while we were there which was so fun. We love that the staff is always so friendly and they allow our pets to come and stay as well. Rooms always clean too!

We spent Valentine's Day/weekend at the Resort and as always it was perfect. The care they pay their guest is what sets them apart. Everyone is so very friendly, courteous and oriented towards making your visit the best they can. We return often and always enjoy each and every day there!

You can tell this resort works hard to please their guests. I have stayed before in a lower end room and decided to book a suite this time. Unfortunately there was some issues with the room but the staff rectified that immediately, we will come back again.

Really Clean and very good service. Would definitely recommend. Loved the fact they wanted to use less water, so reused towels and sheets. Didn't mind helping the environment out. Great view of the haystack rock from our room. Coming here again for sure.
