“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Lago Mar. A lowrise hotel right at the beach. Free parking. Stayed with kids and granny, all were happy there. Great breakfast, the chefs cooking our eggs were wonderful and very helpful. Loved the freshly squesed orange juice. The beach was great, and it was fun going to the harbour outlet aroung 5pm (approx 150 meters to the right) and watch the cruiseships leave. Two pools, both very nice. Skilled spa staff and a very helpfull front desk. Only 10 min to the airport. We will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I just spent a lovely long weekend at Lago Mar. Beautiful resort, delicious dining, nice pool and beach areas, and wonderfully attentive staff - we enjoyed every minute of our stay. This was our third visit to Lago Mar and it has become like a "home away from home" for us. What a perfect way to relax and escape for a few days from our snowy Boston winter!

We stayed here for a week in Feb. What we liked best about this place was its proximity to the beach. Just stroll there straight from the hotel - no street to cross like the other hotels in the area. The server from the pool bar even walked over to the beach to serve us drinks! That was awesome. Watching the cruise ships at 4:30 in the afternoon (or thereabouts) was a pleasant sight.
The room itself was a suite. The kitchen appliances were brand new and high end. The room was clean and the entire hotel was very well maintained. The staff and everyone there were all very friendly. I also loved the whole feel of the place with the palm trees and tropical decor.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early February and it was amazing!! We are already planning our next stay there with our 8 and 6 year old kids, as it is a perfect family resort as well as perfect for couples. This resort has it all! We relaxed by the pool, walked the beautiful beach, lounged on our ocean view balcony, played shuffleboard (had a blast and we are in our mid 30's :)) all while enjoying great food and drinks. Our room (575) was unbelievable and huge, with a separate living room,efficiency kitchen, two bathrooms, and huge balcony. The only regret I have is that we didn't rent a car. Believe me, there is truly no need to ever leave the property, but when we did I would've liked to have the freedom of our own car vs the need for a cab. We had breakfast every morning at the Soda Shoppe as we aren't huge breakfast eaters and didn't feel the need to spend money on the breakfast buffet. I have no regrets as we had awesome service and great food every time. We ate lunch every day at the pool side bar and grill and had awesome food every time!! I was a bit concerned about charging everything to the room, but it actually worked out great and a lot less stressful than carrying cash or credit with you to the beach or pool. We truly feel like we have found an American gem and can't wait to return. Many kudos to the staff and owners of Lago Mar!!

Lago Mar was very nice but we have stayed in more impressive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico. Only stayed a couple of days so did not get a sense for all amenities but Lago Mar seemed well equipped for a family getaway...as opposed to the business trip I was on. Overall facility is nice, not spectacular.

The room was very accommodating with a two-bed bedroom separate from bathroom and large living area. There was a good size terrace with view of the ocean. There is a nice kitchenette with a small (not tiny) fridge, sink, dishes, toaster, etc. The bathroom could have had more counter or shelf space, the shower had good pressure but the tub drained slowly, and the ceiling was low in there. Also the water had a slight sandy color in the tub. Included WiFi worked well.

The fitness area was well equipped with cardio, machines, and free weights but wasn't too cramped. Wish it was open outside 6A - 10P but I suspect not many of the lounging guests mind that. I ran a few miles on the beach, which was well maintained early in the AM, and got to witness a cruise ship on it's way in to the nearby port.

The conference facilities were good but the ocean, people heading in and out of spa, etc. are a minor distraction! Not sure how catering was arranged but it was very good...particularly the grilled shrimp, chicken, and beef.

Wouldn't mind staying again but will probably shop around the area first.

Room Tip: Direct ocean view a must when choosing this location. You're paying for it somehow anyway.

The resort is a wonderful oasis right near all the action but isolated from it. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice with excellent noise isolation. The highlight is hanging out at the beach and pool which is what we most want to do when visiting Florida. It's close to a lot of activities and great restaurants. The food on the property is also good.
It's really convenient to have a car with free covered parking right near the room.

This is my first Trip Advisor review although I read them often because my husband and I travel a lot. I had to take the time to recognize one of my very favorite places: Lago Mar Resort and Club. We just returned from our fifth visit to Lago Mar and it never disappoints. It has an understated "old Florida" vibe combined with spacious rooms, good food, and an amazing beachfront location. It's great for couples and families. And, you won't find any Paris Hilton/Kim Kardashian wannabes wandering around! I'd also like to mention Michael Holmes. Not only does he make a tasty cocktail, he takes fantastic photos! We arranged a photo shoot and couldn't be happier with the results. Such a nice way to memorialize our trip, and another reason to love Lago Mar!
