Tortuga Festival and Demi’s Big Day

Hi! Fort Lauderdale was alive with music during the Tortuga Music Festival! Each day I was so lucky to be able to drive along A1A to take the kids to school and, last week, was even more fun because we got to watch the set up for the festival, including three very large stages! Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Tucker Boatyard were among a few of the dozens of talented performers. Our resort got to see plenty of country music lovers ...

The Lago Mar Fit Life

Hi! I am writing to you because I am passionate about sharing the story of my past year and the lifestyle changes I have made. Don’t get me wrong, my life was great before, but now I feel ten times better about myself. What I did was simple: I woke up one day after a tennis tournament, which I lost earlier than I should have due to lack of endurance and not being in the best physical shape, so I set a goal to ...

Our Spring Newsletter

Hi, I hope everyone had a great 2015! Ours was fantastic here at Lago Mar with one of the busiest winters in the history of the resort. Summer was good too, with lots of sunshine and gorgeous ocean conditions. I can’t leave out that the second generation, my parents, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last June. Wow! As far as the seven members of the fourth generation are concerned, they have been busy upgrading the playground by adding a foosball table and corn toss. They ...


Our Staycation at Lago Mar

Hi! I have to report to you about my recent experience at the resort. Last week the kids were on break from school and we had to move out of our house for a couple of days due to construction issues so we checked into Lago Mar and pretended to be on vacation, or staycation. Wow! We had an amazing time enjoying all of the things Lago Mar has to offer. The kids loved waking up and racing down to the breakfast ...

Easter Fun at Lago Mar

Hi! We have had amazing activities on property at the resort the last few days. Wednesday we had the farm animals come and we tried something different this time. We separated the rabbits from the larger farm animals and it was fantastic! In one corral the kids could sit in chairs and hold a bunny in a basket. They loved it! In a separate corral the kids that wanted to touch and feed the bigger animals could, everyone was happy! ...


Valentine’s Day at Lago Mar

Hi! I am so excited that it is almost Valentine’s Day! Chris and I took the kids on a Princess Cruise for their school break and just got home the other day. It was so neat to leave out of Fort Lauderdale and actually get to see our house from the ship. Then, as the Emerald Princess departed from Port Everglades, we were also able to wave goodbye to Lago Mar. We had a fantastic time and met some nice ...

Spa Days at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying the new year! We are here at the resort! It has been a bit chilly, and by chilly we mean mid-60s to 70s, the last few days so I think some of our guests have really taken advantage of our spa and been very happy. I spoke to one of our guests that tried the Tropical Pedicure and she loved it! She especially appreciated the deep exfoliation that came from the Fiji sugar cane ...


Christmas is coming to Lago Mar

The sun is shining and the temperature is perfect! It is nice to see our guests enjoying the swimming lagoon, mini golf course and shuffleboard. The tennis courts were of course also in use by my two little professionals, Demi and Dani, who were training with their private coach by the beach. The girls have teen facials and massages planned for later this afternoon. Demi really enjoys the short break from reality, often falling asleep in the care of our wonderful ...

Christmas in Fort Lauderdale

Hi! It is obvious with all of our beautiful decorations that the holidays are in full swing here at the resort. Also, throughout our city, many much loved festivities are taking place! Last Tuesday was the 53rd Annual Christmas on Las Olas, and, wow, I think this year had record attendance and energy! I remember when I was a little girl (about 40 years ago) and we would walk down Las Olas that evening and visit the different stores enjoying ...
