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

We manufacture mattresses and box springs and recently had the opportunity to deliver to the Diplomat Beach Resort, specifically to Rooms 260 and 262; then stayed for five days in Room 262. The unit is clean and tastefully decorated, with the added bonus of a comfortable bed! The management is friendly and helpful. It is just a step away from... More

The staff that work there seem dedicated to maintenance. My particular preference is Bathrooms and Kitchens that are clean. Add to that the pool area. A spectacular view combined with a central location for dining out. A destination in itself! CR Dixon

Had a wonderful stay. The waterfront location is perfect for long walks on the beach and enjoying stunning sunsets. Clean, updated room was very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Enjoyed watching the local heron and egret on the grounds. This was the perfect relaxing getaway we were looking for. Hope to return.

The place is beautiful, the rooms are amazing, but you get what you pay for here. The definition of the Redneck Riviera. Large signs "DO NOT FEED BIRDS" and yet people are feeding the birds (Great Egret and Great Blue Heron), get this, From Their Rooms!!! No enforcement of rules, reported offenders directly to office and nothing happened. Sad, beautiful... More

Dear Berlin Massachusetts, We thank you for taking the time to comment on TripAdvisor about our Diplomat Beach Resort. As you first hand witnessed, every one of our units face the Gulf of Mexico along with the added perk of only a few steps to the white sand and the water. We do apologize for our "locals"(wildlife) who tend to... More

This was our second stay here and we will be back in several weeks. The location mid-island is perfect and you can't beat walking out your door to the beautiful beach. Having towel service daily and frequent cleaning is a big plus. Beach towels can be rented for $5 deposit each. Matt, the manager, is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful as... More

It has it all...reasonable prices, clean, super quiet, beautiful beach, newly remodeled heated pool, well manicured lawns/landscape, attentive staff, no pets, no smoking rooms and located off the beaten path. This was our second visit...first we rented a 1 bedroom, this time a studio. Both great.

Our family has been coming here regularly for the last 28 years. It's always been wonderful. It's a beautiful location with a delightful staff. Every unit has a spectacular view of the ocean. A few steps out the front door is your car, and a few steps out the back door is the beach... and a pool...and lounge chairs. There... More

I have stayed at the Diplomat 3 times. It is not fancy- but I continue to go back because the view is incredible, the sunsets phenomenal, and the ability to walk right out of your room and onto the beach is the best!!!! The staff is small, like the resort, but they are so nice- and very helpful. Not all... More

We stayed for seven nights Thanksgiving week in a one bedroom unit. The living space was large and well appointed. The kitchen area was especially well stocked. The location of the condo unit resort is right at the Gulf adjacent to a long, flat walking beach. Each room has a Gulf view. At the resort is a pleasant swimming pool... More
