Small Meetings and Groups Keep Coming Back

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! In the last few days, I have been asked numerous times why so many small meetings return to Lago Mar Resort year after year.

He cautioned that this number would be higher if it excluded those groups that are required to vary their meeting locations ...

Lilly Pulitzer Cover-Ups at Resort Shop

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Demi and I are modeling our beautiful matching Lilly Pulitzer cover-ups from The Resort Shop at Lago Mar Resort.  We were spending a couple of days at Ocean Reef in Key Largo, where we are members. Next to Lago Mar, this is our favorite place on the planet! Lago Mar is similar to Ocean Reef in that both are exclusive private clubs as well as resorts, which, in my opinion, provides a sophisticated comfortable atmosphere for guests and members.

Wine Cellar Lounge: Super Bowl 48

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I just have to say that I had the best time here at Lago Mar last Sunday for Super Bowl 48. The Promenade Bar was packed and so was the Wine Cellar Lounge! Chef Phil did an awesome job with his special appetizers. The sliders and flatbread pizza were phenomenal and I had no idea, until that afternoon, that he had added lamb chops to the menu. They were to die for. I believe I had 10 adults ...
