My family and I have been staying at this condo annually since discovering it in 1991. We call it our home away from home. It's the perfect place to relax, recharge, and spend quality family time together. The best part is you are right on the beautiful peaceful beach!

We stayed in 240, a one-bedroomed apartment on the upper level. It's very tastefully decorated and definitely a home-from-home. The views from the balcony are spectacular at any time of the day but particularly at sunset when the colours are a photographer's dream! It was fairly quiet when we stayed - no children running around which was definitely a bonus... More

Great property location but if the constant smell if cigarette smoke bothers you BEWARE ( unless you sit in your condo all day) I have never experienced this at a resort before so I was very surprised.

This is the perfect place to spend your vacation. The room has everything you need and is situated right on the beach. You can watch beautiful sunsets and Dolphins swimming in the sea from your window. Best spot we have stayed so far on the west coast.

We stayed at the diplomat for about a week in a studio room and enjoyed it thoroughly. The room was clean. It was made up every day. Convenient to shopping.Close to St. Armand's Circle and write on a wonderful beach looking out at the Pacific.

We recently stayed in condo #222. The view of the Gulf is beautiful. The rooms are simple but well equipped. The property is in the center of the key. There is a Publix Grocery Store less than a mile away. We took our bikes and rode to St. Armands Circle. Great value for the location. We would stay again.

Our first time here, and we have made reservations for next year already. We just chanced upon this after reading about it on TripAdvisor, and luckily someone cancelled, so we were able to get a studio unit. We just really loved it and all the new friends we made. Now, to be fair, we were here during a time when... More

With the exception of a couple of years, my wife and I have vacationed at the Diplomat since 2006. I reviewed it for Trip Advisor back then and gave it five stars. We just spent three weeks there the end of January and it is still worth five stars!!! From the front office staff that includes Matt and Jordan to... More
