Fodor's Expert Review Surf and Sand Resort

1555 S. Coast Hwy., Laguna Beach, California, 92651, USA

One mile south of downtown, on an exquisite stretch of beach with thundering waves and gorgeous rocks, this is a getaway for those who want a boutique hotel experience without all the formalities. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about Laguna happenings. Expect elegant pastel-hued decor in the rooms, private balconies, slumber-worthy beds within earshot of the ocean, and a small full-service spa. Rooms, restaurant, and bar are arranged to maximize ocean views. The seasonal California cuisine at Splashes is top-notch; sunset on the outdoor deck is picture perfect.
