Resort has a more than 500-foot-long private beach
Few amenities sit within walking distance
Sandwiched between the Stranahan River and the beach, Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club has a primo locale away from the chaos of Fort Lauderdale, Florida's main strip. Rooms here are filled with cushy, Tommy Bahama-style furnishings, flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and complimentary high-speed internet access. Guests suggest splurging on an oceanfront suite to enjoy the breathtaking views. Meanwhile, the resort's private stretch of shoreline is popular for its chaise lounges and hammocks, as well as its activities available to children. After a long day spent in the sand and the sun, refresh your skin with a treatment at the on-site spa. And when you start to feel peckish, grab a bite to eat at one of the resort's four dining options. Cruisers stand to benefit from this resort's location 3 miles northeast of Port Everglades and 6 miles northeast of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Keep in mind, though, that you'll need a car to reach most destinations.

Lago Mar Resort is an upscale 204-room hotel located on 500 feet of private beach in Fort Lauderdale. The family-friendly resort is packed with amenities like two pools, a full-service spa, a spacious gym, and multiple restaurants/bars – including a poolside tiki-style bar.



The sprawling, kid-friendly Lago Mar, owned by the Banks family since the early 1950s, retains its sparkle and a refreshed old Florida feel thanks to frequent renovations. Brilliantly colored bougainvillea edges the swimming lagoon, and you have direct access to a 500-foot private beach in an exclusive neighborhood.



Situated away from the bustle of Fort Lauderdale Beach, this multifaceted resort offers guests a private encounter with tranquility. Guest rooms here overlook the pool, beach or Intracoastal Waterway.
