I came here in November 2011 with my parents (61 and 71; I'm in my thirties). Had an amazing time - like summer camp for divers. Food is good (get used to repetition if you're here for a while); rooms decent. Beds reasonably comfortable. This is not a luxury resort, but a great family-run place. Get to know your dive guides and they'll fill you in on the best places to dive, best times, etc. They'll take really good care of you.
I saw a couple of non-divers here; however, not sure what they did all day. Not really a place for non-divers as no beach per say. You can snorkel off one of the jetties but the visibility is so-so.
I actually got homesick for this place once I left - we went on to Palau and Yap, where accommodations are more luxurious, but there is less feeling of togetherness. Something about everyone having a common goal (diving the wrecks) makes Blue Lagoon really special.
