Capistrano Surfside is a delightful place to stay. It is low key and very relaxing. It is right across from the beach and has the bridge right there. The rooms are large and comfortable, and the staff is so helpful and kind.More

Thanks for the wonderful review, Ruth!
We spent a 7-night stay here in an ocean-view one-bedroom unit. The complex is very clean, check-in went well (Amanda was super!), our room was nicely appointed, and the kitchen had full-size appliances, including a dishwasher.
Our king-size bed was very comfortable and the trains that run directly across the highway do not sound their horn (no crossing here so no need for the horn, we assume). It did not disturb our sleep. The units are undergoing updating and ours probably was one of those recently done units (221). The small patio had a gas grill, as well as a table and 4 chairs.
There is a cross-walk in front of the property but the elevated cross-over to the beach is not yet complete so access to the beach is via the next cross-walk up the road.
The property has a nice little community room, a heated pool (80 degrees), a spa (102 degrees), a small fitness room, underground (and above ground) parking with decently sized spaces, a linen exchange once a week, and internet connectivity at a decent speed. The beach-themed interiors are a combo of wood-look vinyl planks and new muted-tone carpeting in the bedroom.
Walkability is a bit of a challenge and it is best to bring your grocieries with you upon check-in as there is no close-by stores of any kind.
Next door is a really nice Mexican Cantina.
Thanks for the taking the time to write such a thoughtful review - we appreciate it!
There are so many activities and sightseeing close by and the ocean views are wonderful. Two excellent restaurants are next to the property and Dana point Harbor is nearby. We went on a whale watching trip there.
There is a beach access ( bridge over "Coastliner" train tracks } and complimentary beach equipment is available as well as Bicycles for cruising on beach bike trails.
Thanks for the great review, Bob - we're glad you had a fun time!
Surfside’s location right across from the ocean is ideal. The cruiser bicycles provide a tool for a short jaunt to ride right on the beach! The staff is very helpful in suggesting nearby attractions. The staff really CARES.
Thanks for the wonderful review!
It is a nice place. Good location. Shower did not work. Seemed to be a timeshare. I think it would be a good place to hang for a couple of days by the beach in the summer. It had a kitchen and a small living room.
Thanks for rating us, Nancy - we're sorry to hear you had problems with the shower and hope we were able to resolve for you.
I thought this was a hotel booking not a timeshare. Thoroughly disappointed to have to make sure my room was clean upon leaving or pay a fee on top of the fees they already charge. No clean towels given bare minimum toilet paper rooms very dated sofa extremely uncomfortable. I’m on vacation trying to relax not playhouse maid.
