Orlando to Fort Lauderdale Jet-lag. That must be why the clock says 04.35 but my body says 09.35. Not so bad though as was asleep by 9 last night. Bed was really comfortable. First stop is breakfast and when in Florida that means Denny's. a Grand Slam Slugger. Then a quick trip to Wal-Mart for some essential last minute toiletries and a aux cable …
... began to pass over the bow. They splashed up to our windshield and over the flying bridge. We were covered in green water from stem to stern. Splash, crash, up and down, pound, pound, pound. We had to use our windshield wipers to see. This went of for several hours (about 12 to be exact). Our back up plans were all for naught as we were unable to exit because it would mean taking the waves broadside to re-enter the ICW and at this point, they were big enough to roll us over. So, ...
... Once the third is added, the line really moves. However, once the line for security is finished, we have to stand in another line to check in. Let me just say that the “priority” status for check-in or luggage is bogus. We discover this as we stand in this line for well over an hour. The priority section has only 10 clerks and only one for handicap folks. The regular check-in for the “peons” has maybe 12 clerks. ...
... we have walked a long way in a straight line... mostly because it is too dangerous to attempt to cross the roads here! no pedestrian crossings in sight. They also have water sprinklers everywhere and David got soaked when one hit him full on. Will update more when I can! image is if breakfast. ...
Today we left our Fr. Myers condo and drove to Ft. Lauderdale to leave for our 10 day Panama Canal cruise. We stopped for a quick breakfast at Dunkin' Donuts, then made our way to the Park & Go where we left our car and were shuttled off to the cruise ship. We arrived at the luggage drop off where the porters took our luggage and we began the check in process. We are sailing on the Island Princess. Overall, ...

Nice place to stay
Beautiful place for some sunny beach days. Clean rooms, excellent breakfast buffet and a nice pool with beach view..... Internet access via TV (10 $/day) is just good enough to check the emails. Many pages doenīt work and istīs hard to navigate without a mouse. Good service - late check-out without any problems.
A Bit Dissappointing
We stayed at Lago Mar for 3 nights in May 2003. Previously we had stayed at The Hyatt Regency Pier 66 but decided we wanted a beach front location.The lobby was fairly pleasant but not representative of the rest of the hotel. Our room was tired, the bed sloped away from the wall, and the bed linens were poor. The in room safe was not secure and operated by a simple key. The elevator in our block was smelly and dirty and the stairwell equally poor. The breakfast was expensive. The bathroom compliments were good.Will return to The Hyatt next time.
This resort is excellent for children except for one huge drawback. First, the good: The suite was well designed for a family and the activities were just wonderful. Spectacular pool for children, plus free kids 9-holes putting green, shuffleboard, vollyball tournaments, giant chess game, computer game room (not free), and playground. Now, the not so good. The food here is definitely not kid friendly. Buffet breakfast for 2 adults and 2 kids cost over $50, way too pricey when kids only eat a dab of this and that. Lunch at the soda pop shop, same problem; it came to over $50 for burgers, hot dogs, and ice creams. But worst of all, the dinner menus in both restaurants are impossible for most kids - no kids menu offered, no kid-type food available whatsoever. We were told that we could order burgers, hot dogs, or pizza for them, but only through room service to eat in the room. How discriminating! We had to go elsewhere both nights for dinner. However, if you can plan around the food problem, you'll have a wonderful time here.
Lago Mar the Best
The view from the lower three floors that was previously critisized was corrected during our stay there in September. All the foliage was in the process of being trimmed. My only negative comment would be concerning the crowds on the weekends when the locals come to use the pool and beach. Adults were fine, but the teens calling all their friends over was a little much.
We stayed here for a week. The rooms were nice. Cool and quiet. The only negatives are as follows:
The palm trees block the ocean view on the lower three floors.
The soda shop is way too expensive.
Paying five dollars for a beach chair is really tacky.
Other than that, it is a cool place. We'll probably go back.
Nice grounds--beautiful pools--we had great service--but bring a thick wallet!! ($3.00
coffee, $9.00 mixed drink, $5.00 beer, charges for beach chairs!)
This property is beautiful, including the lagoon style pool. What the brochure does not tell you are the following:
Plants are better attended to than the people.
Meal service can be slow and frenetic
waiters appear to be untrained and often in a quandry. Thereis no effective maitre'de supervision of customers waiting to be served.
Many entree's in main dining room, save for steaks, are nice in appearance but tasteless.
The main bar can hold only six people seated.
When busy the sole bartender can't even see the people waiting. Annoying.
The little snack and items shop sells dollar items for four and five dollars. Petty predatory pricing. Told my kids, don't go there.
All in all, a classy property, with not so classy management.
