Need a great family hotel in Fort Lauderdale?

Fort Lauderdale Beach offers a lot of beautiful hotels. However, finding a family friendly beachfront hotel may be more difficult. I recently stayed at the Lago Mar Beach Resort and Club. I can tell you that your entire family will enjoy this Fort Lauderdale hotel. I want to share with you 5 reasons you should choose Lago Mar for your next South Florida family vacation.

Free Parking

Parking in large Florida cities are not cheap and usually hotel parking can creep up your nightly bill substantially. For a family on a budget, free parking is a big plus.


When traveling with kids a hotel room can either enhance or ruin a trip. Lago Mar offers spacious and comfortable rooms. I recommend booking wither an Executive suite or a 1 bedroom suite so that your family can be very comfortable in the extra, luxurious space for an extended trip. But regardless of the room category you choose, all of these amenities are included:

  • Pillowtop mattresses, soft comforters and beautiful duvet covers
  • Granite countertops in the bathrooms
  • Tommy Bahama-inspired furnishings
  • Over 60 HD TV Channels
  • In-room movies
  • Complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access
  • Cordless telephones
  • Clock radios with iPod docks
  • Keurig coffee makers, microwave ovens
  • In-room safes
  • Bathrobes
  • 24-hour room service
  • Concierge service
  • Laundry and dry cleaning service
  • Video checkout


When you check in to your room at the Lago Mar you will be given a week calendar with all the activities taking place on property. From a mini golf tournament to live music at the pool your family will find a way to be entertained at this hotel. In addition to the activity schedule, there is a basketball court on the beach with beautiful views of the ocean, a life size chess game, miniature golf course and pool.

The location could not be more perfect. Situated directly on a private beach in Fort Lauderdale, you have plenty of space to play or relax. The Lago Mar Resort is situated on 10 acres in the exclusive and secluded Harbor Beach neighborhood only a few minutes from the main area of Fort Lauderdale Beach.


There are a variety of dining options at Lago Mar; from enjoying a quick taco snack in your bathing suit at the Ocean Grill to breakfast with a view on the Palm Garden patio. Mom and dad will enjoy relaxing at the Wine Cellar Lounge. but the Soda Shop will be a family favorite because you can get everything from bakery items to deli sandwiches to ice cream!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary stay at Lago Mar for the purpose of review. I received no other compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.
