My family and I have been a member here for over seven years, and absolutely love it! From the great food and drinks to the great service, you are destined to have an amazing time. My favorite part of the club though is the beach. The peaceful 80 degree Gulf is truly relaxing. More importantly, the service at the beach... More

This place is a gem for both young and old. We arrived later that initially thought however this was no problem as the staff had made arrangements; a great help. The view is sensational, simply breath taking (picture shown from the beach located metres from the balcony). The staff were all really friendly and efficient. The interior (room 245: cant... More

Our family loves this place. Perfect access to the beach... Only steps away. The staff is friendly and the rooms have everything you need. We stayed twice this summer because once was just not enough!

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
