Fourth of July at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth! We sure did here at Lago Mar! The weather was great all day long with super sunny skies and a crystal clear ocean - perfect for swimming! During the day we had our steel drummer on the lagoon island and then Craig Fitch, our guitarist, played during the evening hours until the fireworks began. Chef Phil and his staff did a wonderful job with the buffet servicing Acquario and The Sea Grape Terrace. My ...

Happy Yoga Day

Hi! I have so much to report today. First of all, I cannot believe I am turning 50 tomorrow! I actually received an AARP card in the mail last week with my name on it :( I don’t feel 50, though, and with all of the treatments I have been doing in our spa I don’t think I look 50. I also practice yoga as much as I can and I believe that really helps! That reminds me - next Tuesday, ...

Mother’s Day Weekend at Lago Mar

Hi! I just wanted to report that Mother’s Day was a huge success here at the resort! The weather was perfect and the Air Show helped to make it even a more fabulous day. The Sun Sentinel reported that this was the best Air Show yet and I would have to agree. What a great place our beach was to watch all the planes do their maneuvers without having to deal with the crowds down AIA. Chris and I and the ...

Las Olas Wine & Food Festival and the Spa

Hi! What a fabulous weekend! Friday evening Chris and I attended the 21st Annual Las Olas Wine & Food Festival and we had a lot of adult fun. The weather was absolutely perfect and the event sold out about two hours before it even started. After we picked up our credentials, which were wine glasses that hung on specially made necklaces (pretty cool and convenient), we headed down the famous boulevard to embark on our culinary journey. While we were tasting ...

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 ...

Memories at Lago Mar

Volume 1: Debbie Banks 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 ...

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 ...

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! ...

Lago Mar Goes Green – A St. Paddy’s Day Recap

Hi! I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick’s Day last week! At the resort, Chef Phil did a great job with the authentic Irish food while the Wine Cellar Lounge and Acquario were looking quite festive. The kids and I ran over after tennis to celebrate the holiday and enjoy some of Chef's Irish offerings. The boys ordered the Dark Beer Sous Vide Corned Beef with beer braised cabbage, boiled potato, baby carrots and sweet peas. They loved it! I ...

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 ...
