"June vacation from NY"
The Hotel was perfect, you do not have to walk across the road to get to the beach, you do not need to rent chairs- their are plenty available at the shore line, the pools were clean and warm, plenty of shade from the palm trees- very knowledgeable staff if you want to galavant off the property.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very nice hotel close to the beach"
My family didn't know what activity do first there was a lot to choose from.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just another fantastic day"
Checkin was at 12 and our room was ready within 20 minutes we were in the bags war up and unpacked and we were ready for our walk and swim on the beach. Resort is fantastic. Large flat beach. Volley ball. Ping pong, chess, miniature golf 2 tennis courts and great large pool that goes around an island. Room is big and mini kitchen was good for our lunch. […] 4 pm was music at the pool and the hotel was all booked up. Up and out to the airport at 5:30 but the beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. Our 3rd stay there.

Everything was perfect. 1 long pool for kids. 1 deep pool Friendly staff. Private beach. Jet skis, parasailing for Couples etc, down the beach. Lots of places to eat. Make Sure you get a car rental. Hotel looks like new and has really Nice furniture everywhere. Ocean is not rocky and water is Very warm. Hardly any waves, perfect for kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
This resort was really nice! It was not overcrowded so we we're able to enjoy the beach and swimming pool without the big crowds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is amazing. Lots for the kids to do. My son loved the mini golf and the life sized chess board. Both pools are nice, clean, and big. I didn't feel like I was 'nickeled and dimed' like most resorts. The staff was amazing and fast. My only issues were the pillows were not comfortable and I didn't think that they should automatically add the […] 18% tipping at the tiki bar because I was serving myself poolside. Other than that, we definately will be staying here next year. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very well managed. Great facility, nice people"
Impressive independent hotel. Everything was done well, and the staff was very helpful. We had a standard room with two queens, but it was much nicer than other "deluxe" rooms I have stayed in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very pleasant destination hotel for a few days"
Two pools, the beach, tennis, table tennis, garden chess, a nice exercise room. We had a most excellent dinner and lunch at the hotel as well. Nestled in a residential neighborhood, so note that you can't comfortably walk to another restaurant or bar, but the point of the hotel is to be a destination.Genuine Expedia guest review
Went with my husband and two children, everybody had a great time, played volleyball, table tennis, shuffelboard, Chess. The food at the restaurant was very good, also enjoyed eating outside for lunch. When relaxing by the pool it felt as though you were on an Island with all the Palm trees. Loved swimming in the ocean, so different from what we are […] used to in New Jersey. We took one trip to the swamps and went on the air boats and saw the alligators, that was fun and another day we went to Key Largo to go snorkeling. I would highly recommend this facility and would definelty go back again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Hidden Gem"
I hesitate to say anything great about this wonderful hidden gem because more may stay there, but being honest, this is a true hidden gem. One of very few hotels actually on the beach with its own private beach! The hotel is just yards away from the port and while enjoying the beach you get the added pleasure of watching ships enter and leave the port. […] The rooms are a great size and very clean! They have a beautiful pool and this hotel is very family oriented with lots of games to play at no additional cost. The location is minutes from everywhere including the airport. You can easily come and go as you please and you will be forced to relax at this wonderful hidden gem. A MUST STAY!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for family"
I loved my time here. They have various activities with lounge chairs surrounding the areas so you can watch your kids while they play. The food was great. My only complaint was that their breakfast was ridiculously expensive. They charged my 2 year old $13 for his plate and he didn't even eat from the buffet!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great until the end. The managger checkef us out and he didnt even great us. What a shameGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great beach hotel"
Great hotel near the airport. Easy drive to town. Room was great. Meals and drinks a little expensive but short drive to anywhere. Lots to do and pool and beach were wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"fair but not worth the money"
The room was large but the bathroom was very small, in the older section of the hotel. It was nice but I prefer chain rather then this one. The business center was an outside walk away. There was no adult pool even tthough there were two pools. The kids jumping in the pool, I found annoying for myself and other adults at the 2nd pool several of us left. […] The ocean beach was awesome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great rooms (suites), great location, ON THE BEACH"
Free parking, free WiFi, and reasonable rates! This is almost unheard of in Ft. Launderdale. There are very few hotels with direct beach access, but this is one of them! Quiet and comfortable, but just down the beach from the action. Stayed here after a cruise with my wife, daughter, and one of her friends. What a great way to wind down!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great hotel for beach lovers!"
We loved this place! There were 3 of us & we shared a room with 2 queen beds. The room was spacious,the beds were very comfortable & we loved the balcony. There are 2 pools to swim in as we'll as the beach, with free chairs & plenty of space to spread out. We loved the food & the variety of restaurants. Everyone was helpful & friendly from the moment […] we arrived to the moment we left. We would definitely consider coming back !! Also, the cruise port is very close & it was really cool to see the huge ships leaving port!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel !!!!!! on the beach loved it!!!!!!!!!!"
Great pools!!!!!! Great beds and rooms!!!!!! Very clean!!!!!!! other guests were nice!! Wonderful beach!!! Close to airport and stores but yet very private!!!!!!! Had a really good 6 night stay and will be back again!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice family hotel"
Lago is a pleasant place to stay for a family with children. It is on the atlantic ocean, has a playground for kids, tennis courts and such. The staff was very friendly, we had the least expensive room that the hotel offers but in my opinion it was still a bit too expensive for what it offered. The room had your basic equipment like fridge, coffee maker, […] tv, but NO MICROWAVE! That was a bit surprising since everywhere we have stayed a microwave oven is standard equipment, and having two small children it made life more difficult. So overall the place is nice but just a tad too expensive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great weekend getaway location"
Great experience. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Pool area is great. Beach is very close to the pool and has really nice playground for the kids. Pool bar with drinks and food is great.

Staff was very friendly. The rooms were perfect size and clean. We were looking for a place that was away from all the crowds and noise and this was perfect.

The hotel the amenities and the landscape was beautiful but the pool staff is the worst i have experienced If they hate there job so much why put a that person at the heart of your hotels BusinessGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Value for the Family"
Myself, wife, and two kids stayed for five nights at Lago Mar. We were very pleased with the hotel due to the spacious bedrooms, quality service, and location. The hotel has a private beach, pools, cabana, miniature golf, shuffleboard, and playground. The pool could have been a little cleaner during our stay but that was due mainly to the high winds […] we were experiencing. The only complaint I have is that there is only one child TV channel in the rooms and it is cartoon network. Not the best for families with young children. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One night staybefore leaving early the next mornin"
We arrived at Lago Mar around 5pm for a short stay until the next morning when we flew out of Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel was very nice and the rooms are huge. It was more than spacious enough for our family of five. This area of Ft. Lauderdale is very nice. The beach behind the hotel goes on forever. I wish we had more time to stay. The pools were very […] nice and the night we stayed it was cool so the warm water was nice. Not so sure how it would feel on a hot summer day. Overall it was a nice stay.

"Great location to relax"
If you are looking for the excitement of being in the midst of it all, this is not the place for you. Lago Mar is a great hotel right in the beach. The staff is superb and the location was just what we wanted for our Mother's Day getaway. They provide complimentary lounge chairs for the beach or you can relax at one of two pools. Food at the promenade […] bar was food and drinks were always string - never watered down. From our executive one bedroom suite ( two double beds and a pullout) we could see the pool and the ocean. It was nice to sit on the balcony in the morning to have coffee and watch the rising sun. I can't wait to return with my husband and maybe even the kids! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was the 1st leg of our family vacation and so happy to have found this GREAT family friendly resort!! We stayed in an executive suite overlooking the pool. It was designed perfectly for families with young children. The beds were so comfortable and plush. Our kids loved the playground, lagoon style pool, putt-putt and of course the large chess […] game. The breakfast buffet had plenty of choices and the service everywhere we went was friendly and accomodating. We will definitely be back!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent toddler-friendly hotel"
For an older hotel, we were extremely impressed with the upkeep and overall condition of the rooms and interior of the hotel. The pool and landscape exceeded expectations. There was a tremendous area on the beach to sit and just relax. Looking for a toddler-friendly hotel, they provided all of the outdoor amenities that kept our daughter busy. The staff […] were very courteous to our family which even made the stay more enjoyable. Recommendation: Take a drive to Parrot Jungle and Zoo Miami. The 40 minute trip to Miami is worth it and the little ones love it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"What a gem"
Spent 2 nights before flying back home. Would have loved to stay longer. Beautifully appointed room and bath. Private balcony with chairs and table. Two pools with a bar and food and flat screen tvs in a round type Tiki hut. Large children's play area. Hammocks. Many outdoor games. Had breakfast and lunch on the outdoor patio and the food was very good. […] Reasonably priced. Fitness room. Spa. All this plus a private beach right on the ocean! And free parking!

"Tortuga Music Festival on Ft. Lauderdale Beach"
It was great, very nice resort and close to the festival we were going to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Way too expensive for what you get."
Oceanfront rooms are not really oceanfront. There are pavilions, tennis courts, restaurants in the way. The other parts of the hotel are decent, however they stick you away from the club owners staring at the tennis courts instead of the ocean. No ice machines, you have to call for someone to deliver. Bring your own beverages and ice. Amenities like […] the pools and ocean access were good. Dinner was good at the poolside restaurant, however was $90 for 2. Would not go back for $500 a night. It's more like a motel than a resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older resort, but a good one day stay for a family"
Our family of 3 plus 2 other families traveling with us stayed here for one night after our spring-break cruise and before flying out of Ft. Lauderdale the next morning. We arrived 10 AM and they actually had rooms ready for us, which was a very pleasant surprise. They even got us adjoining rooms on the 4th floor overlooking the pool area with a peekaboo […] of the beach and ocean. We put 3 adults and 2 kids in one of the suites and 2 adults and 2 kids in the other. Both rooms had a bedroom with 2 double beds and a sleeper sofa in the sitting room. Personally, I would not be able to sleep on the thin mattress on the sleeper sofa, but the kids didn't mind. The rooms were maybe a little dated, but in good shape and comfortable. The kids spent to whole day in the pool, except for a couple of hours on the beach. They have a good pool, which was nice and warm, and a huge beach area. The adults spent some time by the pool, walking the beach, and eating and drinking at the poolside bar. Food and beverages were typical resort-pricey. All the food we tried was very good. We didn't explore the area at all, other than the beach, so not much to report on other things to do. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Resort--few included amenities"
Lago Mar is a very pretty little resort in near proximity to where the Ft Lauderdale cruise ships depart. The hotel common areas try to mimic grand hotels like the Breakers and does a nice job on a smaller scale. There are two nice pools in the front courtyard area that leads down to an expansive beach. There is a coffee shop/market and boutique on […] site as well as a full service restaurant, beach/pool bar and bar near the restaurant that opens at 5 nightly. Coffee is available each morning until 8am in this bar area. Our room was spacious and very private---one bedroom, living room with pull-out, 2 baths, and microwave and mini-fridge. On a whole the hotel was very nice, but pricey compared to other hotels in the area. However, I don't think I would really call it a "resort", just a nice hotel with amenities you pay separately for. Umbrellas and chairs were not provided---at $25 a day for shaded seating I would think a "resort" would include this. Group activities in the pool (zumba, water arobics, etc) all had a $15 fee to participate. No money could be used in the restaurant, coffee shop or market (you sign for everything) and a mandatory 18% fee was attached to everything---including purchasing a bag of chips in the market! There is no drink service on the beach, something I would expect a resort to have. All in all a nice place to spend a few days but with few amenities included.

"Great Hotel on beach"
My husband and two teenage kids stayed at Lago Mar for the first time during spring break this year, and had a wonderful time. The hotel was sold out that week, but it never felt over crowded and getting chairs at the pool was not much of a problem. The hotel is very well maintained, the employees friendly and beach is just beyond the pool area. The […] hotel is south of the busier hotel area so it is more subdued at the beach, but it is only a few minutes by car to get to the restaurants and shops if you want more activity. It is a great place for families and we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Outstanding and upgraded room. Really first class. Hotel has the best / biggest beach in FL. Some of the common areas need a facelift, but overall an excellent place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was fantastic! The room was large, comfortable and well appointed. We had a view of the ocean and the sunset was beautiful. The location is a must, right along the ocean and a short walk down you can send of the cruise ships with a wave. This is a family destination, but also a great couples retreat. You make the choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quality and Charm"
Lovely old school hotel Much like the private clubs of days gone by. Excellent service, nice dining room with good service and delicious food. The hotel located close to the airport and the cruise ship port. Charlie private driver who works out of the hotel is fun and knowledgeable. He took us shopping and to the port.

"Ft. Lauderdale Vacation"
When we got to the room there were dirty dishes in sink. I ordered the continental breakfast for two at $10.00 each the bill was $28.00. The bathrooms were small. Charging extra money to rent beach chairs is tacky. I would not stay here again for the money they charged.Genuine Expedia guest review
room was clean, beds only moderately comfortable-ours seemed to bowed to the middle. bathroom very clean but small-toilet and shower in same room with privacy door so others could use the sink while someone was showering or using the toilet. balcony overlooking pool and ocean very large and comfortable with two sitting chairs a lounge chair and a cocktail […] table. mini kitchen very nice and handy-mini fridge, microwave, place settings, corkscrew/bottle opener coffee maker. living area large and comfortable with a four place round table. two tvs one in bedroom one in living room. nice overall experience....

"Wonderful Old Florida Hotel"
Lago Mar seems quite a wonderful place to bring your family and hang at the beach. Room size is large and well-appointed. We had the king suite with pull-out for our daughter. Surprised no mini bar or food available in room, although did have mini-kitchen which would have been useful if there for longer than a weekend. Food prices very reasonable for […] room service, however. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful--once they are engaged. Seemed to us that they are a bit understaffed, particularly for high season. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
