If it’s a grand view you’re after, the Surfsand Resort will give it to you. Haystack Rock is on full display from every balcony of this oceanside hotel, and the beach is just a few steps away. Rooms are spacious, but not ideal for a large family, as most rooms will only sleep four comfortably. An abundance of amenities include refrigerators, microwaves, an onsite restaurant, fireplace, heated indoor pool, sauna, fitness center, free newspaper, free bicycles, free cookies, free ice cream socials, free Wi-Fi, and an onsite kids’ club.

Thanks to the multiple staff for adding to our anniversary experience through "smile making" service and allowing us to enjoy your nearby trails and Creator views.
Last minute limited view suite on the ocean ideal for us. King suite bed in back heavenly with topper and pillows down filled perfect for us. Bed hopped to creaky pull out sofa queen to enjoy open door surf sounds, breezes with fireplace treats.
Suite was perfect for hiking base and unwinding with ocean views and Creator's sunsets from deck lounge chairs.
Staff seems empowered to ensure guests leave with smiles...not just for special occasions but sense this is standard service levels for all.
Our thanks to Jack for getting us into 1301 at last minute and remembering and acknowledging our life milestone with small acts of memorable random acts of kindness. Bonfires addicting, enjoyed views, cold breezes, blankets, spirits complementing s'mores and ability to share together.
Other thanks go to Zak for late night beer choices and help, Carlos for master beach bonfire experience setup, housekeeping for attention to details and the kind waitress at dinner service at Wayfare for putting up with bonfire clothes aroma and suggesting decadent heavenly haystack dessert to go to enjoy later at next nights bonfire.
Wonderful accommodating staff, wonderful views, and an updated beautiful room. The manager went out of his way to provide above and beyond service not only to us, but to others we met on our visit. Excited to check out the cabana service next summer!
