Lago Mar's location is unbeatable: a private oceanfront property with its own 500-foot beach. Owned for generations by one family, it's a luxe throwback combining a family-friendly resort with a country club for well-heeled snowbirds. The 206-room, bougainvillea-draped complex has two oceanside tennis courts, a mini-golf course and a swimming lagoon with an Olympic-sized pool. The common areas were overhauled by society decorator Carlton Varney in a vaguely Venetian theme to reflect Fort Lauderdale's obsession with watery, old-world glamour, while most of the rooms are suites with king-size beds and Key West–inspired tropical interiors. Many look out on water—either ocean or pool—but when booking, note that the hundreds of palm trees on the beach can block views from some suites; make sure to ask for one with an unobstructed sea view.
