This property was extremely racist. The police came barging into our room at 7am when my husband and I were sleeping and said there was a noise complaint which was from the extremely loud house keeping who continued to knock and scream outside. I was also very poorly treated by the staff here while dining on the rooftop. My guests were the first ones seated but we were the last people helped to order. People who arrived after us received their food before the staff even took our order. I had to go multiple times to the staff in order for them to serve us. I have never in my life been treated in this manner while staying at an exclusive property and would like to speak to your diversity and inclusion manager because your entire staff including the manager who continued to ask about my heritage when I was born in America was very racist to myself and my husband. I will be filing a complaint with the NAACP and will be encouraging other guests to not give their hard earned money to this extremely racist business that I will never be coming to again. The manager refused to apologize once and instead decided to harass us at 7am when we were sleeping by calling the police. This was a crime because wasting police resources for a fake incident that did not happen is a crime. This hotel will be hearing from a civil rights attorney regarding the horrible experience my guest and I had. Also I did not take anything from the room but I was charged for incidentals when I had taken anything.

The Surfrider provides a great experience. They have thought of all the things that would make a great vacation. Food is great, staff are super helpful and there are many things available to participate in activities in the area. As advertised, the property is on the highway meaning it is noisy and the rooms are small, but they are appointe so well and the other amenities offered, plus proximity to the beach, more than makes up for it.
