We wanted to place that could fit 3 adults and one child with lots of space so we decided to book the 2 bedroom loft which was beautiful. There was a roof top area to sit in the evenings to watch the sun set and a balcony overlooking the lagoon. If you have older folks going with you, do take note that since there are staircases, they will have to be careful. My mom who is 68 had a good exercise walking up and down the stairs (thank goodness she is quite active). I was also concerned that she might fall down the stairs which thankfully she did not. There are mosquitoes though so bring your mosquito patches and repellent.
It is the low season during June so the beach isn't a good place to swim. The sea is quite rough. Since its the low season everything is less hectic and quiet. I like it that way. There are some restaurants on the beach and if you walk about 5 to 10 minutes on your right side you would see Lotus Restaurant which serves quite good local and seafood.
The Market Place which serves daily buffet breakfast is not crowded. The selection of food is good, we ate there for about 5 days without getting sick of the food. The highlight must be the visit by the baby elephant who comes every morning at about 9.30 a.m. The mahout isn't that friendly though but he makes sures that the baby elephant isn't abused by the guests.
Overall we loved the facilities, there is plenty do around the resort. The swimming pools are long and snaky and about 1.2 m in depth. My son who is 10 this year could safely swim without being watched like a hawk. There are yoga lessons twice a day. The gym facilities are spacious and varied.
Our only issue is that it is slightly far away from Patong (about 30 minutes ride) to get there you need to get a local cab. You can get the concierge to arrange one for you. It should only cost about 700 baht one way. We manage to get a great driver and eventually he took us around the entire trip.
Canal Village which is the supposed shopping village is very quiet and small. Maybe just worth an hours visit the max. There are some small shops just outside the Laguna resort but they are quite a way to walk to and don't offer much of a selection. My suggestion is to head to Patong to stock up on food at the local supermarket called Big C.
