Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club
Ranked #6 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Just spent 6 nights in our favorite Ft. Lauderdale hotel. Lago Mar has a family feel with resort amenities. Stayed in a normal room, but it felt spacious and had a nice view. The lagoon pool is beautiful and beach access is incomparable. Ate and drank at the poolside bar and felt the food was of good quality for the price. Played putt putt, ping pong and the kids loved the sandy playground. Love this jewel in Fort Lauderdale and cannot wait to go back!!!

I was just there in May (2013), however I've been going there since 1960's (I was a baby then). The size is not overwhelming and everyone is always nice. I find the rooms to be quiet, the beds comfortable (I always get a great night sleep here).

We finally stayed at The Lago Mar Resort and it was just great. We have stayed at many resorts in the Ft Lauderdale / Miami area and Lago Mar is by far the best place. The property is beautiful, the rooms are great but most important the service is EXCELLENT. From the moment you walk in everyone and I mean everyone welcomes you to the resort. Front Desk was great, unfortunately I forgot their names but all great. Pool Bar (Ron and Fabrizio) excellent service and drinks. Ocean Grill Beach (Cristine and Isabel) awesome hamburgers and service. Palm Garden Restaurant (John from San Francisco and Ramon) great breakfast and excellent service. Pool Towel Hut (Frances) great lady. The Soda Shop also great hamburgers and ice cream. If you want a great family oriented place with excellent service and beautiful grounds and a beach simply out of your dreams, this is your place.

Room Tip: any room is great.

My family (children and grandchildren) stayed here for our annual vacation. The rooms were comfortable and clean. One of the best surprises was Mike, the photographer. We made an appointment with him and got beautiful pictures to remember our vacation. He was great with the kids, very patient. I would say this is a must for families.

We had suites with a king bed, two twins and a full kitchen, living and eating areas. We were a little disappointed that the twin beds were convertible couches. We had thought from the description it would be two day beds. But it was fine. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Lots of activities for the children (two 6 year olds and two 9 year olds). Lots of shade. Great pools.

We hope to have many more vacations here. Everyone was happy.

We spent 3 relaxing days at Lago Mar Resort...the service and staff were first class, the room was modern with flat screen TVs updated furniture, kitchenette and a spectacular view. Lots for the kids to do (they didn't want to leave) with ping pong, putt putt golf, shuffle board, two pools, tennis, lots of hammocks and of course the beach. There was also great dining on site, from upscale to snacks. The soda shop was popular. I would definitely recommend.

Lago Mar is a beautiful resort right on the beach. The beach is very wide and the pools are very nice. The landscaping throughout the resort is beautiful and very well kept. Our condo was a bit dated.... that was a downside to the resort. They also charge 18% gratuity for everything you order. We used the photographer on site, Michael Holmes, for family photos and he was wonderful! Our pictures are beautiful and we are very pleased. If you visit Lago Mar, make sure to set up a photo appt. with him and you won't be disappointed!!

Loved spending four days at Lago Mar after our Disney vacation. At only 3.5 hours from Orlando we found this gem thanks to tripadvisor.

Nice, clean rooms. Great service. Nice people (mostly families). The hotel is not too big (only 5 stories high per building; they have two buildings I think). The beach area was not crowed at all, and they have plenty of space comparing to other hotels nearby where everyone seemed to be too close for comfort from one another...

The only negative was that you have to pay DAILY $25.00 for the rental of 1 beach umbrella and 2 chairs that on top, are collected at 5pm when the sun is still up. The hotel offers complementary blue, old and ugly beach chairs that are also collected at 5pm. (I have to say that my husband said that those ugly chairs offered a good reading position)...

They have two pools. A bigger one that was a bit crowded. Most kids and families were there, and a smaller one where most adults would be. The pools seamed clean although I never swan there, I don't like pools, particularity when in the beach.

The hotel is well located at only 10 minutes from the airport and has a few places where you can go for dinner (I liked Chucks steak house... Coco Asian Bar was not bad (don't ask for the beef pad thai)...

Our room had a "kitchenette" for what we would have a healthy breakfast in our room everyday (Go to Publix supermarket for groceries)... Or you can eat at the hotel restaurant. My sister in law said it was good.

In sum, I would go back to this hotel anytime BUT I WOULD ASK FOR A KING SIZE BED.

Room Tip: Ask for a king size bed. We had an ocean view room on the 5th floor... the family pool was just unde...
