The Resort Shop and Boat Show

Hi! I was visiting Amber in The Resort Shop because I needed a hostess gift for a party I am invited to. She showed me the cutest display of Michel Design Works giftware. Michel giftware is very popular because the scents are great and the packaging is especially nice! There is a Beach scent as well as Vanilla Palm, which is new, and a Pedals (floral) scent. All of the soaps are made with Shea butter and are fantastic moisturizers ...

Post Labor Day at Lago Mar

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I can’t believe that summer is over and Labor Day has passed! Where is the time going? I actually spent the Labor Day Weekend away from the resort because Demi was playing in a high level tournament in Boca Raton all weekend. She did really well but we did miss all of the excitement that comes with a holiday weekend at Lago Mar. I heard from many members that it was great time! This past weekend we planned ...

The Springs and Peace Lodge in Costa Rica

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Sorry about being MIA for a little while but I took the kids on an amazing vacation to our sister properties in Costa Rica. I was lucky enough to go last October with my brother and about 70 of his closest friends to see Peace Lodge, which he opened in 2000, and walk through his La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park and stay at The Springs Resort in Arenal! It was on that spectacular trip ...

Tennis News and Court Updates

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am so excited to share some pictures of our newly resurfaced tennis courts on the beach. Demi, my oldest and one of the two tennis stars in the family, has unofficially been given the title of "Director of Tennis Renovations at Lago Mar" by my Dad. She takes this job very seriously and if any changes have been made to the courts without her approval she is very upset! On the subject of ...

Saturday Night at Lago Mar

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying their summers. We certainly are! Saturday night we went over to Lago Mar late afternoon, my favorite part of the day, to swim and have an early dinner. Also on the agenda was for the kids to try out the new monkey bars on the playground. As you can see by the picture they definitely had a lot of fun and gave them the thumbs up! We love going over ...

Throwback Thursday Before I was Born

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Happy Throwback Thursday to everyone! I wanted to share this picture of my parents standing in the original lobby of Lago Mar a little over 48 years ago. They were actually on their way to Broward General Hospital, where my mom would give birth to me later that day! No one can believe she was 9 months pregnant in that picture but she was. Also, they were at the front desk to cash a check for $150.00 ...

Beautiful Saturday at the Beach

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I wanted to share a picture of how beautiful the ocean was Saturday morning! The kids and I went over to Acquario for the breakfast buffet and feasted on Chef Henry's delicious Mickey Mouse pancakes. Over the summer the girls play at a tennis academy for 5 hours each day so they have quite the appetite! In addition to the pancakes they had bacon, sausage, and each had their own special omelet made perfectly by ...

Lots of our members and guests spend the whole day just relaxing at the beach or lounging at the lagoon listening to the steel drummer or maybe taking a break to dine on The Sea Grape Terrace. I am sure many dads will probably treat themselves to a visit ...
