Comments We had visited Laguna Beach 14 years ago and had a great experience. We since have travelled over much of the carribean. We decided to give Laguna Beach another try and see if it was as good as we remembered. We got to the resort and found we were one of three couples at the resort the last week in January. They were shutting down the next week for annual maintenance and repairs. Our boat captain, Wagner, was our captain 14 years previous and we were happy to have him take us out again. The food was great and even though there were only six guests we were treated very well by all of the staff. The water was fairly cold, 78 to 80 degrees. As we had remembered, the diving was especially good for small critters. We saw a pipe horse and a pipe fish which we had never seen previously. The resort has added cottages and a swimming pool since we were there last. The buildings were all in good conditions. The sand flies are bad at the dock and dive shop but the rest of the property generally has a breeze that keeps them at bay. We will return again.
