Valentine’s Day at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone has exciting plans for Valentine’s Day! Chris and I are going to celebrate at the resort with Chef Phil’s amazing menu, consisting of a Sous Vide Deconstructed Beef Wellington for Two with mushroom red wine sauce, puff pastry, and roasted vegetables. What a treat?! We haven’t decided if the kids will be joining us but, if they do, I am sure Chipper will try the Florida Lobster with green garlic and leek butter and beef risotto. Chipper ...

Super Bowl Sunday at Lago Mar

Hi! I am so excited that the Super Bowl is right around the corner! If I am being completely honest, I am looking more forward to all of the festivities associated with the game than the game itself. Chris and I are planning to head over to the resort with the kids to watch at least the first half of the game and the halftime show (my favorite part)! Chef Phil is really going all out preparing food representing the hometown ...

Getting into the Holiday Spirit at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! We are definitely in the spirit here at the resort with several Christmas trees throughout the property and many gorgeous new arrangements placed in both lobbies as well as in the lounge. My favorite part of Lago Mar this time of the year is the Gallery Walkway with its real garland strung from the ceiling leaving that magical smell of pine! As far as the kids go, I know my boys loved ...

Thanksgiving Recap at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We were really busy at the resort and, except for a couple showers on Thursday, the weather was absolutely gorgeous. It was so nice to catch up with all of our repeat guests. My kids had the best time reuniting with our younger guests who they have played with year after year, all of their lives. Throughout the year they even keep in contact through Snapchat and Instagram. I think Chipper and ...

New Menu and Boat Show Round Up

Hi! We have had such an exciting past week with the debut of Chef Phil’s new dinner menu in Acquario and the Boat Show coinciding. Everyone is saying that this was the “Best Boat Show Ever” and I definitely concur! The weather was absolutely perfect all five days and the energy of the show and in our town has been over the top! Of course, there was every kind of watercraft that one could ever dream of on exhibit, as ...

Post-Irma Update

Hi! Wow…what a week we have had! We are very grateful that we were spared the worst of Irma’s wrath. We did experience strong winds but luckily never saw a storm surge of any significant amount. Unfortunately, the Keys and Miami were not so lucky. We are praying for our fellow Floridians to make a speedy recovery. We actually opened our resort last night at 5:00, and within just a few hours we booked almost 80 rooms of our neighbors, who ...

The Soda Shop

Hi! I am writing today about a part of the resort that is so dear to me - The Soda Shop.  The Soda Shop is truly one of the sweetest areas of Lago Mar. Upon entering one immediately feels a magical, whimsical sense as they see the huge "lit up” brightly colored umbrella standing over the gourmet cheeses, artisan meats, and Boar’s Head Hummus selections. After taking in that vignette, one might notice the exquisite, fun moldings placed over the ...

Summer’s End and Tennis Fun

Hi! I can’t believe that summer is over and the kids are back to school. I miss them so much. I want to apologize for being MIA but we have been traveling most of this month. I took the kids to San Diego for the National Hard Courts Tournament where Demi did really well and had many college coaches watching her. It was so exciting! We literally came home for 48 hours and then Chris and I took the kids ...

Summer Updates from Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone’s summer is going well! We are having a great time at the resort! The weather has been sunny and hot, so the best place to be has been in the ocean. The kids and I actually spent the night here last weekend because it was Dani’s 13th Birthday. The next morning, we woke up really early and went down to the beach. It was so inviting. We swam half way down to the jetties and then back. ...

Summertime at Lago Mar

Hi! Summer has been off to a great start! The weather has been gorgeous the last few days. Keely, from Yoga Joint South, just taught a beautiful yoga class on the beach to celebrate International Yoga Day! After class, we enjoyed healthy smoothies from Chef Phil and a few of us went to the Promenade Bar for some celebratory wine. It is so nice to see our members get to know each other and make plans to get together again ...
