    Montage Laguna Beach
    Laguna Beach, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1477 reviewsTripAdvisor (1477)
    Free WiFi

    The Montage Laguna Beach epitomizes the relaxed class and beauty for which Southern California is known. The property's location (right along the shore just south of downtown Laguna Beach) is a particularly popular perk among guests. Accommodations at the hotel also include feather-top beds and marble bathrooms, not to mention beautiful turn-of-the-century decor and private terraces or balconies that overlook the ocean. But don't plan on spending too much time in your room. In addition to enjoying the large beach area, you can lounge poolside, shop at the in-house boutiques, receive spa treatments and eat gourmet meals at one of three on-site restaurants. If you happen to be here for date night, recent guests say that the intimate atmosphere and the locally sourced California cuisine at Studio will set the tone for a romantic evening. There are also family programs for children, though previous visitors say that the upscale environment at Montage Laguna Beach is better suited for couples.

    Surf & Sand Resort
    Laguna Beach, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2034 reviewsTripAdvisor (2034)
    Free WiFi

    An idyllic seaside getaway, Surf & Sand Resort sits on the shore about a mile from the center of prestigious Laguna Beach, California. The close proximity to the Pacific Ocean and beach are the highlights for many visitors, but the resort has more to offer. The Aquaterra Spa has a plethora of treatments, including full body scrubs and refreshing facials. And recent diners at SPLASHES restaurant commend the food, though they do warn about steep prices. Plus, with drink service and a gorgeous view, the poolside and its calming atmosphere makes for a great alternative to the beach. The resort's 167 guest rooms and suites are all equipped for a pleasant night's stay, boasting down comforters, iPod docking stations, cotton bathrobes and marble bathrooms with showers. Accommodations also feature private furnished balconies that afford excellent views of the ocean.
