Exceptional 10,0
Great location, the corner king suite has fabulous view directly over the water. The pool was a little busy but there are beach chairs and umbrellas available.

Love the Surf and Sand. Have stayed here many times. This is the first time I’ve stayed here during a heat wave. Upon arrival, our room was given away. They upgraded us to the 9th floor. View and room was beautiful but all the hot air from the hotel was trapped on our floor. It was sooooo hot we both couldn’t sleep. I called for an extra fan, they brought it right away. I would prob recommend to stay here during the fall instead of the hot summer unless you like the heat and humidity

Great hotel!
Great hotel. Wish I knew it exists so that I could have enjoyed it. The only complaint is that it is too close to the water and the wave are too loud at night that I cannot go to sleep.

Dirty facility with trashy people. Way overpriced for what it is. Wish I had stayed elsewhere.
Nicholas, us4 night trip
Poor 2,0
this hotel is in dire need of complete overhaul and time for a facelift in all the rooms. Do not go to this hotel if its a 3day holiday weekend as they allow everyone to use the beach and their chairs and umbrellas -- hotel guests have -0- preferential treatment after paying good money to stay at this hotel. Service also on the beach is horrible. THere are alot of workers standing around and the beach is full of used towels. Very disorderly and complete lack of management on all levels. This one falls on the leadership as its quite evident you lack the knowledge of a 5star hotel. Please stop sending to get voted on Conde Nast as a top hotel of stay as this is a diservice to the hotels that are recognized as top tier. Surf and Sand hire new management and design team and upgrade your standards so that the prices you charge are commensurate with the same levels of expectations from us as the consumer and guest.

The staff was incredibly nice
They gave us a free upgrade which I really appreciated since I was traveling with my 17 year old son so he got his own room. The views were beautiful and the room was really nice but I do think the property itself could use some updating. Especially at those prices.

Beautiful location, amazing view
The location is amazing and the view will blow your mind. However I was quite disappointed with the hotel service. I wouldn't put a negative review because I am not sure it wasn't because of Covid restrictions, but it seemed at times that they would not make any effort or any sense, especially for a place like that.

Good 6,0
Great location, disappointing accommodations
The location of the hotel is superb and unparalleled, however the entire property including the rooms is in dire need of updating. The rooms while comfortable are very dated, the bathroom had termite damage in door moldings and old tile from the 90s. The outdoor patio furniture was stained and broken. At the prices charged this was unacceptable! The view from the room is superb that you become accustomed to how shabby the hotel actually is.
