Super Bowl LI at Lago Mar

Hi! I can't believe Super Bowl Sunday is just a couple days away. Chris and I will definitely be heading over to the resort to watch at least part of the game. Too bad it is a school night… Anyways, the six of us are divided in who we want to win so it should make for a fun time! What we are really looking forward to is Chef Phil's Super Bowl Specials! For the New England Fans, Chef is preparing ...

A Sense of Arrival

Hi! As I was walking through our lobby this morning I stopped to pretend that I was a first-time guest at Lago Mar. I wanted to fully experience our “Sense of Arrival”. Wow! I immediately felt the "casual elegance" that we try to exude throughout the entire resort. The pineapple in the middle of our spectacular chandelier, which hangs from our ceiling that is at least 20 feet high, made me feel welcome, as this crowned fruit symbolizes friendship and ...

End of Year Holiday Fun at Lago Mar

Hi! Hope everyone had a great holiday! We sure did here at the resort. All of the Family Events went over really well with the members and guests. It was awesome to see over 35 Yogis practicing on the beach and the weather was absolutely perfect! During the middle of class, a cruise ship went out, which is always an amazing site. It was even more fun because it played the tune from Love Boat (all of us around my ...

Debbie’s Holiday Gift Idea

Hi!  I am so excited to report that I have officially finished my shopping!!  For those of you who haven’t...The Resort Shop has some great gifts! Just last week, I gave my son’s teacher a beautiful Trina Turk bag. Right after she opened it she emailed me right away to tell me how much she loves it!

Spa Gifts and Holiday Plan at Lago Mar

Hi! I can’t believe there is less than two weeks left until Christmas! The resort looks and smells absolutely gorgeous with all of the holiday decorations and I am getting my “Family Events” ready to start the day after Christmas. Of course, Chef Phil and his staff are preparing for an amazing Christmas Dinner and New Year’s Eve. Ever since I read his New Year’s Menu, I haven’t been able to stop craving Chateaubriand! Our guests have also enjoyed Christmas on Las ...

Lago Mar Thanksgiving Holiday Recap

Hi! I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful Thanksgiving week was here at the resort! The weather was beautiful and our “Family Events” were extremely successful. The yoga class was amazing! Those that attended were very grateful and there is definitely interest in having “Yoga on the Beach” on a regular basis.  The “Movie under the Stars” was a big hit with our hotel guests and members. It was great to see so many kids with their faces painted ...

4th Generation Kitchen Takeover

Hi! I just wanted to share a great experience the girls had with Chef Phil last week. He invited them to spend a couple of hours in the kitchen learning about food preparation while meeting the staff and reviewing daily procedures. They especially loved our staff member nicknamed “Winnie the Pooh”. He is responsible for the delicious fresh bread we serve at night and also the vegetables that accompany each entree. The highlight was that they actually had the opportunity ...

Lago Mar at the Magazine Stands

Hi! I can’t believe that Fall is here and all of the holidays are approaching. The temperature for this coming weekend is supposed to stay in the 70’s! That is so perfect! I am sure many members will use the club this weekend to enjoy the weather and our new travertine pavers that we installed last month around the Lagoon and Promenade Walkway. I can’t even tell you how many compliments we have received. The property is really looking great. In ...

After the Storm: Hurricane Matthew

Hi! I am so grateful to report that we were spared by Hurricane Matthew. Our prayers go out to our fellow Floridians up in the northern part of the state. We did have to fully prepare for the storm by moving several beach chairs, tables, umbrellas, equipment, televisions and many other items. Our staff has been wonderful! Almost everyone took part in the preparation for the storm and then, at 6:00 am Friday, our employees began coming back to work ...
