Just can't get enough of this serene spot on the north east coast. My husband and I visited twice in one month. There's so much to do, no need to leave the hotel in search for activities, the location is perfect. A hike to Three pools or to Paria if your adventurous or just chill on the beach which is...

The owner - the italian man was very nice and pleasant. But he is not the boss. The chinese woman - Barbara Zowner controls him and the property. She is not a nice person, nor a pleasant host. She was very rude to us and other guests and did not address any of our requests over Easter Weekend and she... More

We stayed here one night only because we couldn't get a room as another place. The Italian ex-pat who owns & runs the place is a very nice guy, but I feel he has "too many irons in the fire" & isn't paying attention to this property. He showed us his latest project, which was a cheese factory (and the... More

This resort is ideal for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. A group of us 8 in total spent 4 days there between the 19 - 22 June, 2014. The journey to the lodge is a long one and the roads are not the best. Although a 4x4 is preferable, cars get there... More

We stayed here last night and could not have felt more welcome. Gottfried the owner was incredibly accommodating and helpful and entertained us during our meals. The rooms were basic but for the price we were all very pleased. The beds were comfy and clean however the bathrooms were dated and tired yet clean. Location was awesome. A 5 minute... More

We had stayed at Laguna Mar for one night 8 years ago and had good memories. Unfortunately the place has really gone done hill. The room was dilapidated with missing/broken lights, rusty or dirty bathroom fixtures and lousy linens. It also smelled of insecticide. The nearby beach was covered with trash. The food was still decent but the owner should... More
