Memories of Lago Mar: Volume I – Debbie Banks Remembers

I remember when I was a little girl and my grandfather (Sidney Banks, First Generation), whom I loved dearly, used to take me, all dressed up, to the Sunday Night Buffet Dinner in the dining room. Men were always in suit jackets and there was always a band playing. I even remember the singer, Lee Carroll, who I thought was absolutely gorgeous, singing our favorite songs if we asked. Lots of our guests and members would dance and so would my brother Lee and I!  Every single table would ...


Holidays and the Spa

Hi! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. I spent the holiday at a national tennis tournament with Demi and she made it all the way to the finals! It was so cute that my dad came to watch her play 6 matches, 5 of which she won. I did hear that our guests and members had a nice weekend at the resort. The weather was pretty nice so most were enjoying the pools and beach, not to ...

There were a few to choose from but since I am so interested in all that is anti-aging I decided to try the Lumafirm. I will go through some of the highlights of my fabulous treatment with you. The first step was applying a body elixir made up of sorghum, dactyl ...


Memorial Day Weekend Wrap-Up

Hi! Memorial Day weekend was amazing here at Lago Mar! The weather was perfect and the ocean was beautiful! I was actually at the resort all day on Saturday and ran into so many of my classmates from high school that I thought we were having an unofficial reunion. There was even a celebrity in the swimming lagoon but my lips are sealed. Some of my old friends were staying at Lago Mar for the long weekend and they were planning ...

 Hi! It may not be New Year’s Eve yet but it was last night for the kids that are staying at Lago Mar!
