This was our sixth trip to Laguna Beach Resort, and it was better than
ever.  It's an adventure to get there, but worth it.  The resort is
situated on a peninsula accessible only by boat, and it is a beautiful
setting.  The cottages, with individual docks, face the lagoon, and they
are spacious and comfortable.  Made of local hardwood, they have AC and
ceiling fans, comfortable beds with good lighting, plenty of storage space,
and baths with showers.  The main building is also attractive and houses
the dining room, an honor bar, and a game room upstairs with a TV.  Meals
were excellent, thanks to a new chef, and managers Luciano and Romina took
care of every person and every request.  The dive operation is also
excellent.  There is storage next to the dock, and the staff sets up your
gear on one of three wonderful dive boats.  You carry only your
wetsuit,mask, and fins, and step on board.  Boats have camera tables and
rinse tanks, and towels, fruit, snacks, and water are furnished.  Even the
ladder is outstanding - it is at an angle, so it's like climbing stairs. 
There are two morning dives and one afternoon dive.  Nitrox is available at
an extra charge.  The enthusiastic divemasters, Kim and Sara, helped us
find MANY reef fish, including some very unusual species, such as the
Southern Stargazer, which has not been documented here before.  The whole
group had a great time finding and identifying fish.  The reefs are not
particularly colorful but most have interesting formations.  For the
morning surface interval, we always cruised around looking for whale sharks
- didn't find any this time, but we've seen one here, and they often see
them in the spring.  The winds and choppy water made it hard for even
Captain Wagner to find them, although he has been at the resort since it
opened and is a real expert.  Dives are limited to one hour to get in the
three dives.  Shore diving or snorkeling is always available.  Night dives
are offered twice a week.  Kayaking or hiking can be arranged, as can trips
to town.  This is a laid back resort where the focus is on diving, and it's
almost as easy as diving from a liveaboard.  The package prices are very
good, and their US office does a fine job of arranging your trip.  LBR is
one of our top favorite Caribbean destinations, and we hope to return soon.
