We spent the weekend at the Lago Mar Resort in Fort Lauderdale. The resort has a beautiful, long wide beach with many Coconut Trees and hammocks. There is a lot of shade available on the beach, although there is also the very sunny part of the beach.
Our room was a one bedroom suite overlooking the pool. We were on the fifth floor. Right outside of our balcony was a palm tree, it was fun to listen to it rustling in the wind. It was a full moon weekend and the moon over the ocean in the evening was very romantic!
The hotel caters to families and a lot of local people belong to the club. There are two pools, one is a lagoon style pool which has lots of kids and families in it, and the other is a round, deep and quiet pool. We liked both, but this is definitely more family oriented than just a "couples" resort.
I had a great time shopping in the Resort Shop. I bought a Lilly Pulitzer bathing suit, two other suits and a Tommy Bahama sun dress. I could have easily bought more - but I had spent more than I planned already.
Dinner was very nice - a piano player is in the restaurant, and the menu was okay. I wouldn't say it was great - but good enough.
Definitely take the time to go there - especially if you are traveling with your kids and are looking for a fun beach vacation that is off the beaten track.
