Our Spring Newsletter

Hi, I hope everyone had a great 2015! Ours was fantastic here at Lago Mar with one of the busiest winters in the history of the resort. Summer was good too, with lots of sunshine and gorgeous ocean conditions. I can’t leave out that the second generation, my parents, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last June. Wow! As far as the seven members of the fourth generation are concerned, they have been busy upgrading the playground by adding a foosball table and corn toss. They ...


Our Staycation at Lago Mar

Hi! I have to report to you about my recent experience at the resort. Last week the kids were on break from school and we had to move out of our house for a couple of days due to construction issues so we checked into Lago Mar and pretended to be on vacation, or staycation. Wow! We had an amazing time enjoying all of the things Lago Mar has to offer. The kids loved waking up and racing down to the breakfast ...

Easter Fun at Lago Mar

Hi! We have had amazing activities on property at the resort the last few days. Wednesday we had the farm animals come and we tried something different this time. We separated the rabbits from the larger farm animals and it was fantastic! In one corral the kids could sit in chairs and hold a bunny in a basket. They loved it! In a separate corral the kids that wanted to touch and feed the bigger animals could, everyone was happy! ...

Lago Mar Goes Green – A St. Paddy’s Day Recap

Hi! I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick’s Day last week! At the resort, Chef Phil did a great job with the authentic Irish food while the Wine Cellar Lounge and Acquario were looking quite festive. The kids and I ran over after tennis to celebrate the holiday and enjoy some of Chef's Irish offerings. The boys ordered the Dark Beer Sous Vide Corned Beef with beer braised cabbage, boiled potato, baby carrots and sweet peas. They loved it! I ...

Employee Appreciation Day

Hi! I just wanted to say a few words to honor “National Employee Appreciation Day”. When I think of the 220+ people that work at Lago Mar, I don’t think  “employees", I think more of “family"! I have so many great memories of growing up with the same wonderful people working at our resort. They would always watch out for Lee and I when we were little and probably reported us to my parents a few times (but that was because they ...

Power of Pevonia

Hi! I just wanted to report about the amazing experience I had in our spa a few days ago. I had the honor of spending a couple of hours with our Pevonia Representative and she was fascinating! I learned a lot about Pevonia, our featured skin care line in the spa, and their great products and received a mini class in skincare. I love the fact that Pevonia is “clean and green”. I also love the natural ingredients, like Safflower ...


Valentine’s Day at Lago Mar

Hi! I am so excited that it is almost Valentine’s Day! Chris and I took the kids on a Princess Cruise for their school break and just got home the other day. It was so neat to leave out of Fort Lauderdale and actually get to see our house from the ship. Then, as the Emerald Princess departed from Port Everglades, we were also able to wave goodbye to Lago Mar. We had a fantastic time and met some nice ...

Yogis Love Lago Mar

Hi! I am so excited to report that we had another famous yogi stay at our resort! Rolf Gates, author of Meditations from the Mat, spent three nights with us while he was in town to do some workshops at Yoga Joint South. The girls and I were so disappointed to miss meeting him, although we did get to spend the weekend at a tennis tournament in Palm Beach watching Demi win her first Super Series in the 16s. We are ...

Spa Days at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying the new year! We are here at the resort! It has been a bit chilly, and by chilly we mean mid-60s to 70s, the last few days so I think some of our guests have really taken advantage of our spa and been very happy. I spoke to one of our guests that tried the Tropical Pedicure and she loved it! She especially appreciated the deep exfoliation that came from the Fiji sugar cane ...

A Post Holiday Wrap Up from Demi

Hey there! Demi here. The last couple of weeks have been so fun, spending the holidays in sunny south Florida! Not only did I have an awesome Christmas, thanks to the best mom ever who spoils us every year by exceeding all of our expectations, I got to spend New Year’s Eve together with my family. That’s always the best way. The children's programs were a complete success. I was able to pet the most adorable farm animals and hold the fluffiest bunnies in ...
