Lagunamar Hotel Resort Casino

Best Things Nearby:
Nice beaches and shopping. Wonderful snorkeling and scuba on nearby islands, a 40 minute boat trip.

Best Things About the Resort:
Nine different pools plus the beach. The ocean by the hotel stays shallow for a long time, so swimming is difficult but safe for children.

Resort Experience:
Due to the economic problems, it is hard to give the resort same wonderful review Coach Bear gave it in 2002. The timeshare had 5% occupancy, which meant most of the restaurants and bars were closed, including the pool bar. Because most of the restaurants were closed, the food always seemed to taste the same. The timeshare staff were wonderful, but the casino was managed by others and they were rudest resort personnel I have come across in 15 years of traveling to the Caribbean and Mexico. It was strange because the resort was having obvious problems, that they would be rude to the few Americans who were there. At least one of the other American couples noticed the same thing. The problem was with most of the resort being shut down, that there was nowhere else to go, unless you went into town.
