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.

when I first arrived, there were some issues with the room. After speaking with management, they apologized for the mix up and moved us to an upgraded room (Room 350) . We had a wonderful time and stayed a day longer. The view was spectacular, the restaurant, Splashes, was wonderful and every employee was fantastic. We took advantage of the free Laguna Shuttle and saw the sights.

The service level was "White Glove" all the way. From the moment we checked in, our day at the spa, dinner at splashes, laying by the pool, and hanging at the beach; the staff was incredible. Every person we touched was kind, accommodating and professional.

Surf & Sand went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. They helped make my husband's birthday (& our belated Anniversay) celebration most memorable. Our room was gorgeous with a breathtaking view of the ocean. We spent ample time on our large balcony enjoying the soothing sound of the ocean as well as the stunning sunset. We look forward to our return to this most fabulous Laguna Beach gem.

The staff of Surf & Sand was absolutely wonderful. We were able to check into our room a couple hours earlier than check-in time plus we were surprised to be upgraded to a breathtaking ocean-front room. An added touch was receiving a complimentary bottle of wine & chocolates to help celebrate my husband's birthday. We were also impressed with the efficiency of the valet staff in bringing our car to us within minutes of us requesting it. There is a very good reason why Surf and Sand is the most exquisite resort in Laguna Beach! Can't wait until we visit again! Kudos to Surf and Sand Resort for making our stay a night to remember for years to come!

We asked for early check in if possible. We got to the hotel at 2;00?and we booked 2,rooms and neither were Ready. About 3:30 1 room was ready and the temperature outside was 90 degrees. The room had NO air conditioning and we finally did get into both rooms it was as so stuffy and HOT. They said leave your door open and the patio door open for a cross breeze ! It did NOT help much when it was 90 degrees. They need to get Air Conditioning !
