Why We Love This Hotel

  • Every room at this beachfront resort comes with a private balcony and ocean view
  • The property sits on the sand of secluded Bluebird Beach and it's a 10-minute walk to Laguna's popular Main Beach
  • OpenTable ranked oceanfront on-site restaurant Splashes one of the 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in the USA

"My only disappointment is with Travelzoo itself. When I book, I do so under the guise that I have paid in advance of my stay. The end room billing was quite confusing."

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 & Sand Resort. Set directly on 500 feet of sand, the luxe resort is 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 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 with a casual-chic beach vibe. Every room at the hotel has an ocean view and private balcony. Many rooms include a pullout sofa bed, an ideal setup for those traveling with children.

There's a sandy beach out front, and stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing are all nearby. Every evening take in the spectacular view from the outdoor bar 15FiftyFive that "is just about perfect" (Fodor's) or from on-site restaurant Splashes, named one of the 100 most scenic restaurants in the USA by OpenTable.

Surf and Sand earns its 5-Star Rating EVERY TIME we visit. The Staff is exceptional...the food at Splashes is divine...and the Restaurant Managers Virgilio and Sam are committed to your total satisfaction. And then, there is THE VIEW. Proof that God is the ultimate artist EVER. Just love this place!

We hesitated to spend this amount of money per night. We are OC locals. Our experience was amazing! We were able to check in early. The location is as wonderful as the best Hawaii and Mexico resorts. Service was outstanding. We upgraded to oceanfront and the sound of the waves was mesmerizing. Fee included parking and breakfast, which was an excellent value. Food at Splashes was expensive and absolutely fantastic. Having a credit for breakfast add to our positive experience. I would recommend this deal as a great value for a special celebration. We look forward to our next visit!

We brought our own snacks and alcohol to enjoy on our balcony. You may not want to leave your room. Walking on the beach was fantastic. Bring walking shoes/sandals and a jacket as temperature cools down at night. Leave sliding glass doors open at night for the most lulling sound of nature. Enjoy!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our twin daughters’ 2nd birthday. Tom in Valet and Bryce at the front desk took extra time to ensure we had a great time and we loved the tent we had for the girls to sleep in. This will continue to be one of my favorite hotels!
