I had the pleasure of hanging out at the Lago Mar the past couple of days with friends from out of town staying there. They had a suite on the 5th floor overlooking the pool with sweeping views of the ocean to the south. The room handled two adults and two children with ease. With a master bedroom, bath, kitchenette and living room there was plenty of room for all.
Most of our time was spent just lounging around the pool. The staff is unobtrusive but there when you need them. We even brought our own liquor (we're fond of Cabo Wabo) that we picked up at Total Wine, no one blinked an eye when we set it on our table. The poolside menu is abbreviated but everything we ate was delicious.
The pools are absolutely gourgeous, the river like pool with a small island was perfect for families with children and the second pool was set aside for adults who wanted to enjoy a quieter moment.
The beauty of this property lies in the beach just footsteps away. I ventured south on the beach to the jetty that runs parallel to the channel to Port Everglades. At 5pm I was 50 yards from a parade of cruise ships departing port Everglades. A wonderful sight to behold.
If you ever have the opportunity, try the Lago Mar. It will exceed any ones expectations.
