Weather Report: Beautiful Day at Lago Mar

Hi! What a spectacular day at Lago Mar! My weather report: perfectly sunny and about 75 degrees. I just had the most delicious lunch with my second oldest daughter, Dani, outside on the Sea Grape Terrace. I enjoyed a Greek salad with blackened Mahi Mahi, which is one of our Spa Cuisine entrees. Dani ordered fish and chips from the "kids" menu. I have to admit that I stole about 5 of her fries. Lago Mar has the best french fries! Dani ...

New Year’s Eve: 2013 That’s a Wrap

Hi! What a week we have had at Lago Mar! I'd have to say that on a scale of 1 - 10 the weather has been about a 10! Sunshine everyday and great temperatures has made all of our guests very happy! I have heard more than one person say that they can't believe they are sunbathing on the beach while their friends up north are freezing. I have spent most of the week at Lago Mar with my kids and ...

Italian Special in Acquario

Hi! Sorry it has taken me so long to report about the amazing Italian special last Thursday! Chef Phil prepared a squash ravioli with brown butter sautéed spinach. It was delicious! The kitchen staff, as well as the rest of our staff, are gearing up for a busy and merry Christmas! The weather is absolutely gorgeous and warm, so all of our guests from the cold North should be ecstatic! My kids are actually outside right now on the little beach ...

Where Bling Meets the Beach

Hi! I was in The Resort Shop at Lago Mar today shopping for teacher gifts when I came across one of the neatest handbags I have seen in a long time! I would describe the bag as "where bling meets the beach". It is a handmade woven straw bag made by Skemo. It has tassels decorated with the brand’s gorgeous, signature Czech crystals. I have been thinking about it all day... hoping Santa reads my blog and will give it ...

It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas at Lago Mar

Hi! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Lago Mar! We have a tall, beautiful tree in the main lobby, which is decorated with gold hydrangeas, glittery gold balls, silver butterflies and birds and precious angel ornaments. The fireplace in this lobby is also stunning with its gold and silver accents and pale green poinsettias. My favorite part of the resort at this time of the year is The Gallery Walkway with the fresh garlands crisscrossing all the ...

A Night Out with our “Tween” Guests

Hi!  Every Thanksgiving I take a group of "tweens", who  have been staying at Lago Mar since they were basically born, out to a restaurant for dinner.  This gives them a night out and also gives their parents an evening to go out alone.  In the past we have done Bimini Boatyard, Southport Raw Bar, China Grill, and the Japanese Steakhouse.  This year, however,  they wanted to go see "Twilight:  Breaking Dawn 2".   After the kid's program was over ...
