You may not think the luxe Surf and Sand in Laguna Beach is a family getaway, but you’d be surprised. My story on the resort on CBSLA.com; here’s a splash of the story… Its name says it all. The Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach is surf-surreal close with the sand at hand, literally just steps away. The hotel is pure SoCal without the over-the-top need to impress. It is quite luxe, but in a boutique beach/chic way. There’s no dress code, it’s very comfortable and it seems anything goes.
The original hotel was born in 1948—starting with just 13 rooms. Since then, Surf and Sand has been renovated many times and added 2 additional buildings (for a total of 167 rooms now), but luckily the bones of a former beach motel are still evident at the Four Diamond rated resort. You’ll see its carefree ‘50s style in details such as its simplistic lobby and hallways that are exposed to the outside.
