Great value, right on the beach.

very friendly staff. unique resort like feel in Fort Lauderdale. Clean beach. Food is average. Taxi takes forever to get there. Good they have valet service at no extra charge. I'd recommend this to families with young kids. Good playground, pool and beach.

Not the Worth the 4 Star Rating...

Our Suite was definitely in need of a remodel with frayed carpets and an A/C system that never worked properly. We mentioned this to the Hotel but it was never even addressed.The fold out bed in the Liiving room was quite lumpy and uncomfortable as well. The restaurant and outdoor area food staff seemed uninterested and service overall was average at best. Not what we had really been expecting at $250 a night...

Beach front with tiki house access

My family came to this resort after a week long trip from the Caribbean. Amenities were great although to take full advantage of the resort, it would be ideal if guests would be able to check (guaranteed) BEFORE 4. The towels and staff by the pool is off by 5pm so it is hard to take advantage of amenities by the pool if we're checking in that late. What was great was that it give you a fantastic view of the ocean. I saw my ship leave for the next trip once again, sitting out beside the private beach that afternoon. My room had the balcony view that overlooked the resort. The room was non-smoking with a relatively small tv. Coffee was available as well as all the bathroom accessories one could ask for (even cotton balls!) Valet parking and guest parking is free and were prompt even at 6am! I would definitely stay again only this time longer than a day!

unexpected pleasure

signed up late for a meeting at the Convention Center, this was the closest nice hotel that had space. It was therefor relatively expensive for the purpose of my trip since I wasn't there much. However, it is a very nice place. A smaller version of a throwback grand Florida resort, right on the beach. It feels like it's been recently updated, but is still charming and friendly. Would go there for a pleasure trip.

Girls Trip

I feel that this hotel caters to it's owners and not it's hotel guests. The service was TERRIBLE. Wait staff would walk by you to fawn over unit owners. We had to flag down more than one person to get our bill on every occasion. The food in the "Soda Shop" was overpriced and not much more than microwaved sandwiches and egg product. The store only carried Evian for water and was VERY overpriced!! The whole hotel seemed to shut down at sundown every night. While it was a nice getaway for 4 days and the staff was friendly, I do not think we will be returning to the Lago Mar anytime soon.

Awesome beach front stay

Unfortunately, we were only there for one day and evening and didn't get a chance to take full advantage of all amenities. The beach here is wide and beautiful with a great view of the boats and cruise ships leaving the harbor. Very close to cruise port and airport. The room we had (pool view balcony) was beautifully decorated, clean, quiet and comfy. Had a small kitchen area and Keurig. Loved that it was close to Los Olas downtown area for food and shopping. Highly recommended!

A classic, dependable and low stress Florida resort experience

We had a very large and comfortable room. The hotel is conveniently located and has a nice beach and two pools . No hot tub though. I'm especially grateful at not having to get up extra early to stake a claim poolside. The food is ok; the breakfast buffet is better than dinner at the main restaurant. The soda shop lady is awesome.

ft. laurderdale trip

The Lago Mar Hotel was wonderful. We were provided an upgrade when they could not accomodate the bed arrangement we booked. The beach area of this hotel is the best on the Ft Lauderdale strip. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with alternative plans to entertain our nine year old granddaughter when the weather did not permit us to be out at the beach or one of the two pools. Our only disappointment was to learn that we did not have assigned seats on the plane despite the fact that we had selected our seating well in advance of the trip.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Plan on renting a car. The hotel is removed from the public beach area whcih offers dining and some shopping options. Cab fare can be costly to get to any child oriented activity away from the hotel. The Discovery Science Museum and Imax Theather is a good option for a rainny day.
