Fort Lauderdale Resort receives Tripadvisor’s 2023 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best

Recently named one of the top resorts in Fort Lauderdale by U.S. News & World Report, family-owned and family-operated Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club at 1700 South Ocean Ln, Fort Lauderdale reached a pinnacle in the travel industry and has been recognized on Tripadvisor’s 2023 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best list as #1 Family Resort in the US.

According to Tripadvisor, “Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best awards only go to hotels with a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Each winner must pass Tripadvisor’s rigorous trust and safety standards. Fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best, signifying the
highest level of excellence in hospitality.”

Used to receiving kudos and honors, to name a few, Lago Mar was the first resort chosen in Broward County to be on the Condé Nast Gold List Edition of the “World’s Best Places to Stay” and has been honored with the AAA Four Diamond Award every year since 2001.

Its secluded 500-ft of private beach on 10 acres in the Harbor Beach neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, the resort also boasts 204 rooms (164 suites and 40 resort rooms), various dining options, full-service spa, and corporate meetings and special event space. The cherry on top is Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club’s multitude of on-site activities that guests of all ages can enjoy
and appreciate.

This South Florida jewel is owned and operated by multiple generations of the Banks family. “And this is why Lago Mar is a destination for families who return year after year,” said Walter Banks, owner and former Hotelier of the Year.

Lago Mar continues its trajectory with being recognized by many of the top travel publications and sites. To find out more about Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club and how to book your next vacation, please visit , connect via Facebook and Instagram, or call (954) 523-6511 for more information.
