Lagoon looks beautiful, and the area around it is nicely done. Palm trees and grass area are a really nice touch, but closeness to a huge parking lot is kind of a downer. Water looks wonderful but its way too cold for me. Much colder...More

This lagoon was located right near my hotel. It was never too crowded. The water was colder than the ocean, but it’s a nice quiet place to relax at.

Hi, I’m not sure on public drinking, but I did see gazebo/bbq big family gatherings parked up for the day there, just like being at a beach or park situation. Really nice there.
