My husband's family has owned a timeshare here for most of his life. For the last 9 years, we have been coming with our children. We just got back from our last visit two days ago. What a great time we had. First off, this location is ideal, right next to Heisler Park and a short walk to Main Beach and the town. The complex is clean and well maintained for a beach property. I did have problems with the dishwasher leaking, but they came and fixed it immediately. Every unit we have stayed in has been slightly different, so it pays to ask alot of questions when booking. There are several units that do not have views, and can be quite hot in the summer. We love that the resort has free popcorn and ice cream on certain days and times, as well as other planned activities. Having a self-serve laundry facility is very helpful with the beach clothes and kids stuff. They have quiet hours after 10PM, but you can swim in the pool and relax in the spa until then. The place has been very quiet for us over the years. The bulk of the noise we have heard is from the folks at the park, early morning fitness buffs, dog walkers, and the endless stream of weddings. The windows shut out most of it, but who wants to close their windows at the beach? I do like that they changed their procedure with housekeeping. Now they come everyday to refresh any towels you need, and to make the beds. The parking is challenging, you can only have one car, and the spots can be tight. The beds are quite comfortable, firm and nice linens. The couch bed is awful. I made that mistake sleeping with our sons on our last night. I did hear they will be doing some updates on the property next year, I just don't know what will be involved. Hopefully new couch beds. Overall, I have only the best things to say about Laguna Shores. We will continue to enjoy year after year of happy days in our favorite getaway.
