The resort is beautiful- I did a lot of research. My boss wanted to surprise his niece and her family. I put through credit card authorizations for full payment to go to my boss. When she checked out she was charged $600 additionally. Either they didn't read ALL charges or didn't care to adhere to it. Additionally I called the...

I came for a business function but want to come back for either a girls trip or family visit! First, the staff was very friendly from the valet, to front desk, to the team that set up our meeting rooms. The projector we brought didn't work and their team brought us one within 10 minutes! That's unheard of compared to...

I am a high school teacher, and I travelled as a member of the chaperone team for my school's annual senior trip. Surf and Sand helped us host nearly 200 12th graders in high style. Although the trip is a school tradition, and we have used Surf and Sand before, this is my first visit there, and I feel compelled...

My husband and I just returned from Surf & Sand Resort, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. It was our first visit to the resort, and it did not disappoint. From the initial welcome at valet and check-in, to the cleanliness and view of the room, to the personal service of each staff member that we encountered, everything was excellent. We...

We had a very nice stay in this lovely hotel. I believe the rooms all look out to the ocean, although we had a bottom floor room and our view was mostly of the pool. (We got a good deal through Hotwire, so I can't complain.) The room was large and tastefully decorated, with lots of light from the big...
