Demi’s Healthy Summer

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 ...


Last Official Weekend of Summer

Hi! Omg….The kids are back in school and we are trying to get back into a routine after an awesome summer. Last weekend was the last official weekend of summer, as this is our first full week of school, and I have to say that we really made the most of every moment this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Lago Mar! Friday afternoon, we went straight from school to the resort and had an amazing evening with friends. Friday nights ...


Memorial Day Weekend Wrap-Up

Hi! Memorial Day weekend was amazing here at Lago Mar! The weather was perfect and the ocean was beautiful! I was actually at the resort all day on Saturday and ran into so many of my classmates from high school that I thought we were having an unofficial reunion. There was even a celebrity in the swimming lagoon but my lips are sealed. Some of my old friends were staying at Lago Mar for the long weekend and they were planning ...


Lago Mar this Weekend

Hey! This is Demi, filling in for my mom. My siblings, cousins, and I all had an awesome time at the Lago Mar this weekend. We actually spent both days there! On Saturday, after playing tennis with my coach for an exhausting couple of hours on the new and improved tennis courts, I was extremely grateful for several moments of peace as I laid on the hammock with nothing but a virgin strawberry daiquiri. Over the music coming from my ...


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 ...

Fort Lauderdale native Diana Nyad

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! One of our guests just shared something with me that I wanted to pass along to you all! Do you remember hearing about Fort Lauderdale native Diana Nyad, who at 64 swam from Cuba to Florida? It was Nyad’s third attempt and first success at this particular challenge. The current issue of The New Yorker has a profile on her and it has some enlightening information about her connection to Fort Lauderdale. As it ...

Yoga Joint South & a day with the kids

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Yesterday I had the best day with the kids! We started our day at Yoga Joint South, which is about 2 minutes from Lago Mar, just over the 17th Street Causeway Bridge. I did the Hot Yoga class with my oldest daughter, Demi, while my other three kids participated in the Kids' Yoga Class at the same time. How great is that? Everyone had a great workout and a lot of fun! After yoga, ...


New Year’s Eve: 2013 That’s a Wrap

Hi! What a week we have had at Lago Mar! I'd have to say that on a scale of 1 - 10 the weather has been about a 10! Sunshine everyday and great temperatures has made all of our guests very happy! I have heard more than one person say that they can't believe they are sunbathing on the beach while their friends up north are freezing. I have spent most of the week at Lago Mar with my kids and ...


Easter Activities for Kids

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am just sitting out at The Promenade Bar enjoying the Way Asian Salad and a glass of chardonnay after my last night-time activity for the hotel guests. Tonight's Easter activities had about 80 of the sweetest kids from all over the world coloring Easter eggs, eating pizza and decorating white bags to use for the hunt tomorrow, all of this while watching a couple of Easter movies. I have never heard "Thank ...


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 ...
