Dinner at Lago Mar Resort

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! After the busy holiday week I just didn’t feel like cooking. Instead, I took the kids over to the resort and we had an awesome dinner at Lago Mar! I’m so glad I didn’t feel like cooking because our meal was perfect. We ate on the Sea Grape Terrace and enjoyed the warm, and beautiful, heater that was placed near our table. I had the Fish du Jour, which was pan flashed halibut with lobster sauce and ...

Thanksgiving Activities & the Yoga Joint

Hi! What a great holiday weekend it was! The Children's Programs were a big hit with everyone at the resort. We played Bingo, had a Circus Night, a Farm Animal Night and a Mexican Fiesta. Each night there was a complimentary dinner provided for the kids, followed by plenty of fun activities to take part in. We took lots of pictures so you can see how much fun we had! On Thanksgiving itself, I started my day by taking all four of my kids to the Yoga Joint ...

A Group Meal and Glow Sticks

Hi! I had an amazing time at the resort Friday night. A group of us went over for some cocktails at The Promenade Bar and then dinner on the Sea Grape Terrace. While the adults were socializing and listening to our wonderful guitarist on the lagoon island, the kids were playing on the playground and meeting friends. At one point Demi asked me if she could buy a round of virgin pina coladas for her new friends. We know she definitely has the ...

New Lago Mar Shirts at the Resort Shop

Hi! I absolutely love the new Lago Mar shirts we just got in. They’re more lightweight than our previous design and are perfect for the gorgeous weather we’ve been having.

The Resort Shop: Shopping Spree

Hi! I just went on a little shopping spree in The Resort Shop and found some beautiful things! I have a friend coming to visit from out of town so I wanted to have a new beach bag. I couldn't resist the Muche et Muchette sparkly silver bag. I also chose two coverups from Joyous and Free, which I fell in love with! My most favorite purchase, though, is a gorgeous black Nanette Lepore dress. I can wear it over a bathing suit ...

Halloween & FLIBS

During the last week there has been a whirlwind of activity at Lago Mar. We had so much fun celebrating Halloween with our guests and having many of the Boat Show attendees in residence.

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show just ended and it was a huge ...

Sea Grape Terrace: New Furniture, New Look

Hi! The weather this weekend was absolutely gorgeous - clear skies, no humidity. Last week our new patio furniture for the Sea Grape Terrace was delivered and it is stunning! I especially love the umbrellas. They have this puffy, whimsical look about them that is just so inviting. As I have mentioned before we are transitioning the look of the resort to more natural, earth tones. This was just another step in that direction! Deb
