New Lilly Pulitzer Bag at The Resort Shop

Hi! I found the most beautiful bag in The Resort Shop yesterday that I just had to have! It looks a lot like Missoni but it's actually Lilly Pulitzer! I have received so many compliments already. I snapped  a picture of Amber modeling it before I took it for myself. Amber is a BIG part of the Lago Mar Family and has been for a long time - 14 years. She has worked in The Spa, as well as down on the ...

Acquario’s New Menu is a Huge Hit

Hi! I just wanted to get back to you about my awesome dinner in Acquario a few days ago. The kids and I had a great time trying a few of the new items on the menu. I ordered the Rock Shrimp Mac & Cheese and it was incredible! The combination of white cheddar, gruyere, and gorgonzola was so delicious. One of my kids tried the Hanger Steak & Caprese Salad which has tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, blue cheese, tomato vinaigrette, blackberry ...

Family Update: Where Do I Begin

Hi! I have taken some time off to settle some family issues but I am back better than ever! I'm going to try to write at least once a week and make sure all of you stay up to date on what's happening around the resort. My kids are out of school for the summer, so I plan to spend a lot of time at the resort with them. It is pretty cool that my kids chose not to do any ...

St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival

Hi! Yesterday I took the kids to the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival on Las Olas and we had a great time! The parade began promptly at noon and there was so much to see. There were several floats that were really neat with lots of decorations. My girls enjoyed seeing the Miss America contestants, all from different counties around Florida, riding in antique cars. There were fire trucks and there was even a Swat vehicle that looked liked a ...

Seafood Special: Mako dish was Incredible

Hi! The Resort is very busy and everyone seems to be happy! Friday night I took my girlfriend, her kids and my kids to dinner at Lago Mar's restaurant Acquario and it was incredible.  Chef Phil had a seafood special on the menu that I just had to taste.

Valentine’s Day Specials & Wi-Fi Upgrades

Hi! Not only am I still hearing great reviews about the Valentine's Day Specials Chef Phil offered in Acquario last week but there's also exciting news about Wi-Fi at the resort.

The beef tenderloin dish was served with bourbon glaze onion marmalade and pale sweet mashed potatoes. My favorite Valentine's Day Special was the olive oil poached ...

Weather Report: Beautiful Day at Lago Mar

Hi! What a spectacular day at Lago Mar! My weather report: perfectly sunny and about 75 degrees. I just had the most delicious lunch with my second oldest daughter, Dani, outside on the Sea Grape Terrace. I enjoyed a Greek salad with blackened Mahi Mahi, which is one of our Spa Cuisine entrees. Dani ordered fish and chips from the "kids" menu. I have to admit that I stole about 5 of her fries. Lago Mar has the best french fries! Dani ...
