Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach, Ca. is THE BEST spot in California to be ON THE OCEAN. JC Resorts and Surf and Sand have the best property, a fantastic staff and their attention to detail is second to none! When my wife and I get days off, we try to relax and get some fresh air, scrumptious food...

Love this hotel!! I've stayed here many times, and I've never had a bad experience. Waves break below your balcony and the view is to die for. You can enjoy the pool or sit on beach. Walking distance to bars and restaurants. Staff is very attentive and always makes sure our stay is enjoyable. I can't wait to go back!

The property always seems to have a nice mix of customers - leisure, wedding, and small conferences. The hotel property is right on the beach, there is a small restaurant/bar, Oceanside pool, spa, small workout facility, and outdoor gathering areas with fire pits and heaters. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and nicely appointed. We love this property and love to...

I was attending the conference, did not get to use the property much but whatever little, it was worth spending my time there. My room had a spectacular view and staff was very friendly, and the restaurant on the property has a very good quality food and services.

Certainly not a 5-star experience. Their elevators were broken so despite being on the 1st floor had to trek up 4 flights of stairs to get to main restaurant area on 5th floor without an elevator, and with my luggage on way out! Separately, no cell service in rooms... but was still charged ~$100+ for 2 short calls. WiFi spotty...

Dear Olga, I am so incredibly sorry for the negative experiences during your stay. This is certainly not who we are. I understand this must have been very frustrating for you. If you used your guest room phone because you had poor cell reception, we are happy to waive those fees for you. I have found your reservation and have...

Beautiful resort on the water. Fall asleep listening to waves crashing! Great restaurant with outstanding service staff. This property is IDEAL for a romantic getaway! The surfside rooms face the water and are on TOP of the water at high tide. Dining is about 200 steps away...

We were only here one night for an event but had a 5-star experience. Gorgeous room, great food and drinks, great service and an amazing view at every turn. We did not have time to use all the amenities at the hotel but we will definitely come back!
