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 ...

Employee Appreciation Day

Hi! I just wanted to say a few words to honor “National Employee Appreciation Day”. When I think of the 220+ people that work at Lago Mar, I don’t think  “employees", I think more of “family"! I have so many great memories of growing up with the same wonderful people working at our resort. They would always watch out for Lee and I when we were little and probably reported us to my parents a few times (but that was because they ...

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 ...

A Post Holiday Wrap Up from Demi

Hey there! Demi here. The last couple of weeks have been so fun, spending the holidays in sunny south Florida! Not only did I have an awesome Christmas, thanks to the best mom ever who spoils us every year by exceeding all of our expectations, I got to spend New Year’s Eve together with my family. That’s always the best way. The children's programs were a complete success. I was able to pet the most adorable farm animals and hold the fluffiest bunnies in ...

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 ...

Holiday at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have had a great holiday here at the resort. For all of the families staying with us, the Children’s Program has been a big success once again. From bingo to a circus and even a petting zoo, everyone had a blast!   As far as the circus goes, it has been over 25 years since our clown, Giggles, has been performing for our guests and it is obvious that she is loved both ...

The Lago Mar Fit Life

Hi! I’m writing to you because I really want to share the story of my past summer 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 and just in general. What I did was simple: I woke up one day after a tennis tournament, which I lost earlier than I probably should have due to lack of endurance and not being in the best physical ...

Memories of Lago Mar: Volume I – Debbie Banks Remembers

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 and so would my brother Lee and I!  Every single table would ...

2015 FLIBS and New Menu

Hi! What an exciting week we have had here at the resort! Monday ended the 56th International Boat Show and it was absolutely incredible. The weather was great over the weekend and there was a lot of energy in our town. Chris and I spent most of the day on Saturday at the show and had a blast. It was very easy to see how great the economy is doing! There were so many floating docks with gorgeous boats of every size. We saw many ...
