Friday Night at Lago

Hi! Friday night we had so much fun at Lago Mar. First, Demi had a tennis lesson with Jeff Chanin, our tennis pro of 20 years. I can only tell you that everyone young and old loves to work with him. (I have even heard some ladies say they have trouble keeping their eyes on the ball when he is teaching!) Demi and he played on one of our four courts. We have two courts on top of the parking garage ...

What We Love About Lago Mar

Hi! My husband and I just took our kids to Disney/Universal for their school vacation. They had a blast! We did, too… even though it was so expensive. The resort was expensive. Daily admission to the parks with four kids was insane. While walking through one of the parks, it occurred to me that once a family gets to Lago Mar they are basically entertained without any additional charges. Most of our families spend every day of their vacation at either the ...

Dinner on Las Olas

Hi! Last night my girls and I took a guest and her daughter who have been staying at Lago Mar for over 10 years out on Las Olas. I could not believe it, but they had never been to the beautiful shopping and dining street located less than 10 minutes from the resort. In fact, they didn't even know that it existed! This made the outing even more exciting. We arrived at the Japanese Village Hibachi Steak House and were seated ...

Friday Night Fish Special

Hi! Last night my husband and I took the kids to Lago Mar for the Friday Night Fish Special. The Wahoo, a local fish, was broiled with a cantaloupe citrus salsa and served with ginger purple mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables. It was probably one of the most delicious meals I have ever had, and pretty healthy too. We sat out on the patio because it was an absolutely perfect evening, about 70 degrees with a full moon. The whole ocean ...

Lunching in the Soda Shop

Hi!  Today I met a girlfriend for lunch at Lago Mar.  As I had my two year old in tow we decided to eat in the soda shop, which  is one of my favorite places at the resort.  It is actually one of the newer parts of the resort but has a very old fashioned feeling about it.  We took up 3 of the twelve stools at the counter and had a delicious lunch served to us by Fran, who has ...

Introducing the Four Generations of Lago Mar

Hi!  Thank you for your interest in The Lago Mar Blog.  I think I will start by giving you a little more background information about myself to help you understand my perspective when speaking about Lago Mar.  Lago Mar has always meant so much to me.  It is almost as if the resort is a family member  and I have had different relationships with this "family member" throughout my whole life....  Lago Mar was where most of my childhood memories ...
