“nice place, good service, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

right on the water, with good activities (miniture golf, pool, giant chess, tennis among others), and the rooms are all suites.

I would ask for a newer room in the tower, although they are a little smaller, But they are all nice and spacious. Beds are very comfortable.

The service was very good with everyone from bellman to bar staff being frindly, nice and helpful. they delivered the service that I hope to receive.

And the location right on the water is great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the updated main building. All are suites but the updated rooms are just nicer

No wonder it is affiliated with the peace lodge in Costa Rica. We stayed there on our honeymoon and were glad to see the affiliation. It was very family oriented. The beach was well kept and groomed even when no one was on it. When we arrived we were upgraded from a one bedroom pool view to a two bedroom suite ocean front for no reason. Well probally because it wasn't busy, but still nice of them. Everyone was very friendly. All kid activities were free. Love that you can sit at the tiki bar and watch your kids play on the playground. This place was great!!! Only wish it were a little warmer during our stay to enjoy the beach.

We go to Ft Lauderdale every year and only stay at the Lago Mar it is by far the Best Resort in the area. If you are going for a Quick getaway just you and your spouse it`s Great if your going with family and friends it`s also perfect because you don`t have to leave everything is on site pools,Beach,Restaurants and wonderful relaxing rooms. You can drive anywhere for shopping,Food, Music everything is close by. The staff at the Lago Mar are as nice as can be and will help you with anything you need. You can order drinks at the pool. The views from the room balconies are breathtaking you can park your car for free and go and come as you please. We just left there Oct 20th after 5 beautiful days We are going back in July with a bunch of people and the Ft Lauderdale Airport is 10 minutes away can`t beat that.

Room Tip: Any room over looking either the lagoon pool or the ocean 3rd floor and up.

First time to stay at Lago Mar, but not the last. Beautiful grounds, beach and room. Everything you could want and much more, but they always make you feel like your family. Staff super friendly and helpful. The location with the private beach is perfect, clean and relaxing. Our room was very clean and spacious. We took advantage of the resort photo shoot, with Mike. He knew all the right spots for great photos. You can sign up at resort. We had a blast capturing our stay on film. The photos are a must to cap off your amazing stay at Lago Mar. Thank you for a wonderful. We will be back very soon.

Room Tip: We were on 2nd floor, by pool. Was quiet, and peacefull.

We are local and came before the "season" to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Booked a pool view suite, had a nice living room/dining room combination overlooking the pool and mini-golf area. Separate bedroom and bath. Live music wafting over the pool area added a relaxed note to our Friday afternoon check-in. We self-parked in the adjacent parking garage. There seemed to be good bit of construction on the property, a large elevator shaft being worked on and a crane in the parking lot. No noise when we were there, but something to consider when you book your room. Room was clean but smelled musty. Friends there at the same time were in an oceanview suite and their room smelled musty and like there may have been smokers there before. Ordered room service for breakfast, the Lago Mar special...great bacon and fresh oj. Corned beef hash side needed to be cooked way more....soggy. Also went to the spa, had 50 minute massage with Marge, she was awesome and I am a spa fan so I don't say that lightly. Overall, I liked being directly on the beach (Don't have to cross A1A), liked kitchenette, pool area and landscaping are gorgeous. It's definitely an Old Florida vibe and decor, so if you are ok with that, you will really like this property.

I have stayed here twice, with girlfriends. Clean, spacious rooms, nice beach, friendly staff, close to all the action of Ft. Lauderdale, yet you feel like you are away on an island. Food is OK, pricey, but there are great restaurants close by in Ft. Lauderdale. I'm looking forward to my next time here.

Stayed recently and was totally impressed with the tranquility of the location. This is a wonderful, clean beachfront property. The room we stayed in had a view of the pool and the ocean and it was extremely comfortable. We ate at the poolside bar and had wonderful fresh salads and enjoyed the entertainer who sang from a little island in the center of the pool. I am looking forward to going back soon.

Room Tip: We were on 4th floor in order to get ocean view.
