“Best family resort ever!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We had a blast here with our two young kids! There is every family activity you could want right at the resort! The pool side bar and grill was great, as well as the breakfast buffet! We had family photos done by Micheal Holmes photography and were so happy with the results!!! He also was very kind with our little ones. Hoping this resort stays as wonderful as it is now for the long haul! We will definitely be back! This club maintains a classy family feel without the "snobby rules" found at many high end resorts.

We spent 6 nights at the Lago Mar in March with our two children aged 10 & 8. This was our first visit and we had a fabulous vacation. The resort is beautiful, very well maintained, family oriented, clean, spacious beach, friendly staff and gorgeous rooms. You get a tropical feeling as soon as you enter the resort. Our kids enjoyed the various activities from; tennis, mini golf, shuffle board, swimming and the ocean. The beach was always very quiet. Restaurants and shops are very close by, and the boardwalk is a short walk. Lago Mar is truly a first class Florida experience and we look forward to going back in December. Thanks for making our family vacation and memorable experience!

This was our 4th consecutive year returning to Lago Mar Resort for Spring Break. It's truly a gem filled with wonderful amenities especially for families. Our children ages 7 and 10 love coming back year after year. They especially enjoy swimming in the pool or jumping in the ocean waves on their private beach. The playground, mini golf and tennis courts are a big hit with them too! The live music at the pool is a special treat to hear while relaxing before dinner. This was also our fourth year having family pictures taken oceanside by their photographer, Michael Holmes. He's always able to capture amazing photographs of our family on the beach and around the resort. I treasure having these moments photographed each year especially as my children grow. Lago Mar Resort has become part of our families memories and we plan to keep coming back for more!

We traveled end of August two nights before heading on a cruise out of Ft Lauderdale cruise port. It was two families. We rented an oceanfront one bedroom suite with kitchen and my cousin rented a oceanfront two bedroom suite with kitchen (his was on the ground floor, mine was first floor). The rooms were very spacious and the bed(s) comfortable. The place is gorgeous. The furniture could be use a little upgrading but still welcoming. They have two crystal clear pools and a central tiki style bar in the center. We did not eat at their restaurant as we wanted to venture out and try some of the local spots, but did have a burger one day at the Ocean Grill (it was OK).
The staff is extremely attentive and very welcoming. When you are at the pool there is always someone there ready to take your drink orders. We sampled several drinks with the pina colada being the best. The beach itself was beautiful and clean, but the water was a bit too rough for swimming. You can rent beach chairs/umbrellas for I believe $25 and keep them until they chain them up for the night. We have a great time and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Pay for the ocean front rooms.....well worth it!

Spent a week here with my family. We have 3 kids 7,5 and 4. We couldn't have picked a better hotel in the area. The pools were perfect with lots of shady areas for the little ones and the beach is beautiful. We had a great time and are headed back down in 2 weeks. Definitely book a photo shoot with Michael Holmes. We love our sunset photos and he was able to grab my kids attention and make them laugh. We love our photos and will have this keepsake of our vacation forever!

My family and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a WEEK at Lago Mar this month. It is probably my 10th or 12th visit. I first visited in the 80s as a teen with my parents. This year I went with my husband and three kids, parents and my sister an her family. It was a beautiful vacation that we will remember for years. We love all the options for kids - mini golf, beach playground, tennis, giant chess board, shuffleboard. Delicious meals outdoors overlooking the pool and our room on the water. This year we tried something new and had a family photo shoot with Michael Holmes. It was the best photo shoot ever - quick and fun with fabulous results. He was worth every penny - we have photos that really show the beautiful location and our smiling, relaxed faces. I highly recommend Lago Mar!!

Room Tip: on the ocean in the 80s 180, 181, 182 and so on - for every floor.

This was our second stay as a family at the Lago Mar. I cannot say enough about the staff - they are welcoming and super helpful. From the front desk to the valet on the beach - everyone wants you to have a great time and works very hard to make that happen. The beach is the best beach in Fort Lauderdale by far. Clean, expansive and lots of free chairs available. The grounds are a kid's (and parents) paradise. The putt-putt, tennis courts, shuffleboard, ping-pong table, chess board, swing set - they are all close enough that you can send the kids off to have fun while you sit at the pool or on a lounge chair enjoying yourself. The rooms are great - plenty of room with nice kitchen amenities and balconies overlooking the pool or beach. The food is surprisingly good - we have not gone to the formal restaurant, but have frequented the beach grill, pool bar and grill and soda shoppe and had good meals at all.

The only minor negative (which happens at all resorts) is that people love to save blocks of pool chairs for HOURS before they actually use them. This makes it very hard for the people who want to use the pool at the time to find a chair. I don't know exactly what the resort can do about it - but that is the only negative I can think of.

We loved our stay and plan to go back again and again!
