We stayed one night post cruise recently. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. We did find most of the staff to be friendly and accommodating, while there were some others that were quite the opposite. If you like the beach it is a very very long walk to the beach, but the beach is beautiful and quiet. Pre Cruise we stayed at a small boutique style hotel that was about a block or two from the beach and it was actually a closer walk to the beach from there than Lago Mar which is beachfront. The resort is removed from the main area of Fort Lauderdale, but depending on what you want this could be a good thing. Food in the onsite restaurants was excellent. The live poolside music on Sundays is excellent.
