Recreation and Shopping for Every Interest
The relaxing recreational amenities and convenient shopping venues offered by Lago Mar are unique among beach resorts in Fort Lauderdale. Our 500-foot private beach—one of the largest in Broward County—and swimming pools provide an ideal setting for quiet contemplation as well as active pursuits. The Resort Shop is a resort boutique par excellence, with an elegant selection of the finest goods for men, women and children. The Soda Shop invites you to a feast for the senses from morning until night. Just minutes away, the fine shops of renowned Las Olas Boulevard, Galleria Mall featuring Neiman Marcus, Macy's and Dillard's, and an array of Fort Lauderdale attractions await your visit.
Over 500 feet of fine-grained sand studded with more than 300 palm trees, where the daily temperature averages 75 degrees, creates a serene haven just for you. Attendants are available to assist with your cabanas, chaise lounges, steamer chairs and beach umbrellas. You're invited to play beach volleyball, watch the cruise ships sailing from nearby Port Everglades or simply soak in the glorious South Florida sunshine.
The large pool on the ocean is spacious enough for lap swimming. The other is a 9,000-square foot lagoon-style charmer edged with beautiful palms and tropical plants. There's a tiny island in the middle that often serves as a stage for singers performing your favorite tropical island-inspired tunes.
Four tennis courts are available for play. You can challenge the putting course, play shuffleboard or match wits on an oversized outdoor chessboard. The children's playground offers a delightful venue for young guests to explore and entertain themselves.
Our concierge will be pleased to assist you with arrangements to enjoy the best attractions in Fort Lauderdale and the rest of South Florida. Whether it's water sports within walking distance of the resort like boating, jet skiing or parasailing, fishing charters or scuba diving, or sightseeing tours, shopping or live entertainment, we can provide the local knowledge you need to create memorable experiences during your stay at Lago Mar.
With an expansive private beach, array of recreational activities, and spacious accommodations, Lago Mar offers the ideal setting for family vacations in Florida. In addition to resort attractions, our guests with children enjoy Fort Lauderdale's numerous attractions, which include the Museum of Discovery & Science with its 3D IMAX theater, Butterfly World and Flamingo Gardens.
The Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District beckons with the exhibits at the Museum of Art-Fort Lauderdale and lively presentations at the Broward Center for Performing Arts. The restaurants and shops on Las Olas Boulevard also provide alluring destinations for an afternoon or evening's pleasure.
Cruise Ship Travelers
Three things make Lago Mar the perfect cruise ship port hotel for passengers arriving or departing from Port Everglades. Lago Mar is located just a mile from the port's entrance. Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport is just five miles from Lago Mar. And there's no better place to ease into your cruise vacation state of mind or enjoy it a little longer than in the relaxing atmosphere of Lago Mar.
