Hi! I have to report to you about my recent experience at the resort. Last week the kids were on break from school and we had to move out of our house for a couple of days due to construction issues so we checked into Lago Mar and pretended to be on vacation, or staycation. Wow! We had an amazing time enjoying all of the things Lago Mar has to offer.

The kids loved waking up and racing down to the breakfast buffet where Ahmed would make them pancakes in the shape of their favorite characters and serve them up with a huge smile on his face. Then we would park ourselves down at the beach for a few hours and enjoy the salt air and, of course, the benefits of the salt water. (Just ask Demi about how healthy the sea is for your skin.) At lunch time, we would venture back up to the tables by the Promenade Bar and have lunch, which usually included a healthy dose of super foods.

The girls trained each afternoon on the beach courts with their coach while enjoying the breeze. A group of fans, including members, guests and their number one fan Papa, also enjoyed watching them take to the courts. As soon as they finished, they treated themselves to frozen lemonades and a hummus platter. The boys loved just playing on the playground with whoever was around, guests and member alike, and swimming in the pool.

I especially loved the vacation from cooking! It was so nice to let Chef Phil and his staff take over for a couple of days.

I think one of the highlights of the day for me was sitting on the balcony with a glass of chardonnay and enjoying the beauty of the property while watching my kids play below. One night we even ordered room service, which delighted the kids more than anything! When we had to return to our home the kids were disappointed and asked me why we couldn’t stay at Lago Mar more often for no reason. I think we will need to make this a plan! No matter how many great Trip Advisor reviews we receive, beautiful newsletters we send out and all of the pictures on social media, there is no better way to actually appreciate the magic of Lago Mar than to check-in, let go and just BE our guest!

Hope to see you soon, Deb
