When I saw Laguna Village being built, I really didn’t expect it to look half as nice as it does. We were really surprised and the quality was really good.
There’s lots of parking available which is always a good thing. There are numerous designer clothes shops, furniture and restaurants including Trader Vic’s and Portifino Ristorante. As you walk around Laguna Village there is a decked walkway surrounded by water.
I can see it being busy around the Summer Months with the Puro Beach Club, but to be honest in the winter I cannot see many people going there to shop. The shops are lovely but mainly expensive and the restaurants need to be very good and consistent to attract diners during the low season.
The Puro Beach Club at Laguna Village really was the cool hangout this summer along with the other notorious beach clubs like Nikki Beach & The Ocean Club, Puerto Banus.
Puro Beach has a beautiful decked area with stunning white beds and tents and a lovely pool, but it is no good to us as children are not allowed! There is a choice of sun beds (singles and doubles) with sun shades, tents etc. Prices range from €20 to €160. Its like its own little piece of heaven, all white and tranquil. There is a restaurant, bar and you can even do yoga there.
You also have the option to sit on the beach if you wish where you can also choose which sort of bed and cover you wish. Unfortunately for us, kids/babies under 16 are not allowed in the pool, so if you are childless then you can enjoy it!
It is really a lovely place, although you may need to save up for your designer bikini so you can fit in with everyone else!
The opening hours during the winter (1st October to 31st May) are from 11:00-18:00 (closed every Tuesday and Wednesday). During the summer Puro Beach is open every day from 11:00 to 02:00.

As you will see from the list above there is a very good selection to choose from, including some of the most popular designer shops.
