We were a group of 8 and took two units downstairs - 214 and 216. The one bedroom units are ample for 4 people. The bedroom has 2 double beds and the living room has two sofas that can make into beds. The one bathroom for the unit was sufficient. The kitchen is fully stocked and you are steps away... More

We have found THE place for our annual beach getaway! The beach is just steps away and our rooms are comfortable and clean with plenty of room to spread out and relax. The staff is extremely helpful and so nice. If you are looking for a place to chill out, the Diplomat is where you need to be. We have... More

Our family and close family friends have been vacationing for a week every 4th of July at the same place for 40+ years in Venice Beach (Beachcomber in Venice). This has been a tradition that started for me when I was 4 years old and over the years has grown into 3 generations of close family and friends of about... More

This was our second annual stay and we plan to return. The best part of the place is that it is right on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and all rooms face the Gulf. Both one bedroom units we stayed in were very clean and well appointed with anything we needed (linens & kitchen tools). It is convenient to shopping... More

Our Unit 216 had a great view of the beach and gulf right from the living room and just steps to the beach. Also had a grassy area before the beach to sit on if you don't walk to well on sand. The room is decorated with shells and coastal scenes.Parking is just outside the door on the opposite side... More

This weekend was our first time staying here and it was great. The staff was incredibly friendly, the room was clean, and the location couldn't have been better. We had a perfect view of the beach and the Gulf, and it was so close. We only wished we could have stayed longer. We'll definitely be back!

We arrived at the Diplomat on Saturday and left on the following Friday. Upon arrival, I asked about discounts and was informed that we did not qualify because we were not staying a full week. I wanted to write a review and glanced at their homepage. I was shocked to see an advertisement for a 10% discount for people staying... More

We had a wonderful time at the Diplomat Resort! My husband and I were there for four days to celebrate one of my best friend's destination wedding. The resort was clean and put together and very comfortable. Our room was great and perfect for just the two of us. The gulf was right outside our window and just a few... More

Every room faces the beach, each with a different decor and feel! You can preview the rooms on the website which lets you pick the best fit! Each room size... More

We stayed at the Diplomat for a week for my niece's destination wedding May 25 - June 1, 2015. The week was spectacular. The hotel had never had a wedding there before and was over-the-top accommodating. Jordan, Matt, Joe, and the rest of the staff had the entire place looking top-notch when we arrived and kept it that way the... More
