I just returned from my first visit at the Lago Mar yesterday and I still can't believe what a wonderful time I had and what a beautiful place the Lago Mar is. I went with 2 friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. The birthday girl wanted beach and relaxation and believe me, thats what she got. From the minute we drove into the front of the building we knew this place was different.
Next up, our room. We reserved a 2 bedroom Oceanfront Suite and all I can say is WOW. This room was gorgeous. It was so large we laughed that we got our exercise just walking from the living room to the back bedroom. The beach was right outside the patio door. Everyone morning we sat there drinking coffee and watching the sunrise. The room also had 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette. It would be perfect for a group or family.
The grounds were amazing. 2 pools, tennis courts, mini golf, a towel hut with clean, fresh towels and a pitcher full of ice cold water was a nice touch for the hot days. The pool bar was hugh and a great place to get an ice cold drink during the hot days.
The staff was exceptional. Everyone was friendly and always chatting with us. Upon our arrival, We had 3 men come out to greet us. They took our bags and valeted our car (free parking too). All 3 were very friendly. The front desk staff were very welcoming. My friend and I surprised the birthday girl with having flowers & balloons delivered for a surprise. Michael in Concierge and Eric in Reservations were so helpful in setting that up. I can't thank them enough for that she was so surprised. They both went above and beyond. Tina at the front desk was always pleasant to deal with. We call numerous times for ice and Kcups. She always called back to make sure we got what we needed.
When I got home I told my family that we have found a new vacation spot. I have already told my coworkers what a wonderful time I had and that they have to visit the Lago Mar, they won't be disappointed. I am looking forward to my next visit. If airfare wasn't so high, I'd be there for Thanksgiving.
All in all, it was a perfect weekend and I honestly believe the Lago Mar had a lot to do with that.
