Laguna boasts an excellent golf course but little else. Overall it is a literny of broken promises.
The "resort" - if you can call it that - has about 120 villas and apartments, a nice swimming pool and an expensive restaurant but no people. If you're a keen golfer you'll enjoy about a day here. Book for a three day stay and you'd better take a good book with you.
A few years ago the developer made a series of promises aout massive upgrades to the facilities but in fact the opposite has happened.
A new marina apartment development has never materialised. The promised completion of an international airport seems to be at least two years behind schedule and a number of resort improvements, international hotel etc seem stranded on the drawing board.
Instead the resort's only hotel, the Lodge, has been closed for almost three years. So too are the restaurants it housed. The "Stables" horse riding centre has been closed and the "Kids Club" is no longer operational. The Beach Club Cafe and shop are also boarded up, perhaps awaiting better times.
The nearest shopping is at Proserpine about half an our away and the nearest interesting destination is Airlie Beach, about an hour away.
In fact anyone considering Laguna would be better off staying at Airlie Beach for their stay in the Whitsundays and driving down to Laguna for a game of golf when the notion overtook them.
Laguna seems that it was once once a good idea that fell victim to its isolation. Its ghost town status of the past few years now seems entrenched for the foreseeable future.
Pay it a day visit by all means, especially if you're keen on golf - but otherwise give it a miss and stay in Airlie Beach.
