Don't dismiss this property. My three star rating is against my five star standard (Marriot Vacation Club properties) for timeshares. We ended up in an East facing room (ie. non-ocean view). However, that was fine with us as we were out and about each day. Leaving little time for gazing out the window. If you have your mind is set...

Thanks for taking the time to post a review! Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I understand we don't have the amenities that some of the larger (Marriott properties) have to offer; but what we do have is a clean, well-maintained resort with a great personality! Come back and stay with us again, we'll see what we...

Read past reviews and I must say...We loved this place. Walking distance to beach...across the street. San Clemente pier so close. Has microwave n small fridge. Such a perfect little hidaway. We will be back.

We just returned from Capistrano, our second visit to the Surfside Inn. We totally enjoyed our visit, it's so relaxing, everything you need and then some. I am handicapped (oxygen 24/7) and when we arrived and parked in the garage we discovered the elevator out of service. The staff provided me with a space close to the front door limiting...

I am so glad you enjoyed your visit. The elevator was down for a scheduled upgrade during that time and we notified all guests prior to arrival. We did everything we could to not impact our guests, (staff handled luggage, exceptions were made for parking) so I'm glad to hear that our efforts were appreciated and this didn't impact your...

This complex is right across the Coast Highway from the beach. The beach is more for viewing. Not recommended for swimming. There are nicer swimming beaches close by within walking distance. There are fire pits on the beach as well as places to fish. There is a raised platform to cross over the highway. No need to worry about cars....

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the ocean. Located near shopping, ocean activities, beach, and local sites. The staff are awesome and all of your needs are meet. Double jacuzzi tub makes for a romantic night. Dishes, cooking utensils, dish soap, towels and pool towels are provided. You can purchase food and grill out every night. Perfect vacation.

We did rci timeshare exchange to stay here in February. The manager Amanda was very helpful in facilitating our stay! She arranged for us to upgrade to two bedroom unit when our party expanded from 2 to 6. We were in unit 216 with large covered deck and great view of ocean and beach.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! It's our pleasure to accommodate any special requests that we can. Our pool was closed only because it was resurfaced recently (something we have to do every 10 years). Normally it's open year-round. Thanks for the kind words and we hope to see you again in the future!

We are owners here. It is a timeshare, but they also rent out rooms when they are available. The staff is so nice, especially Augustina. She is so helpful and kind. Definitely worth a stay if they have vacancies .
