Surf & Sand Resort

Surf & Sand Resort, a JC Resorts property located in Laguna Beach, Calif., has selected OpenKey to provide guests the convenience of digital key entry. Resort guests will be able to access their room with their smartphone and customize their stay with features such as late or early arrival notification, remote check-in, front desk contact feature or modifying their check in and check out time, all through the OpenKey mobile app.

"Surf & Sand strives to combine the best of location, atmosphere, amenities and convenience - so adding mobile key technology was an easy choice,” said Melinda Speck, corporate director of brand marketing for JC Resorts.

Voted Conde Nast Traveler's 2015 Readers' Choice Awards Top 20 Best Resorts in southern California, Surf & Sand's 167-rooms all have a view of the Pacific Ocean giving guests the chance to relax.
