Why We Love It

  • The beachfront boutique property is intimate and pretty; a lot of weddings take place here
  • Laguna's touristy Main Beach is a 10-minute walk away
  • Private balconies look over the waves crashing below, and almost every room has an ocean view
  • There is an oceanfront restaurant and two bars -- a cocktail beside the fire pit at 15FiftyFive lounge at sunset is a must

"Boutique hotel experience without all the formalities" -- Fodor's

An artsy little hideaway along the coast and "the prettiest of all the SoCal beach towns" (Frommer's), Laguna Beach has plenty of places to stay. The best, though, are right on the beach, like the AAA 4-Diamond Surf and Sand Resort. It's a 10-minute walk south of the tourist throngs at Laguna's Main Beach, making it a bit more intimate, but still close to the shops and dining of downtown.

The scene on Pacific Coast Highway right outside is like a Riviera postcard, with bougainvillaea-covered cliffs tumbling down the hillside and the area's most charming bohemian cottages lining the winding road. The boutique hotel blends in with the area's elegance, but with a casual-chic beach vibe. 

Nearly every room at the hotel has an ocean view, and most balconies peak right out over the waves that crash against the building during high tide. In the summer, the lack of air-conditioning in the rooms can be an issue, but the ocean breeze feels nice (though waves are a bit noisy). Many room types include a pull-out sofa bed, an ideal set-up for those traveling with children.

There's a sandy beach out front, and stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing are all nearby. Every evening as the sunset casts a golden glow across the hotel's facade, the view from the outdoor bar 15FiftyFive "is just about perfect" (Fodor's).

From the press:
  • "On an exquisite stretch of beach with thundering waves and gorgeous rocks, this is a getaway for those who want a boutique hotel experience without all the formalities" -- Fodor's
  • "It's literally right on the sand, so much so that at high tide the waves splash against the building" -- Gayot
