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

We decided to stay at the Diplomat after looking at several other properties online. The deciding factor that brought us here was how close the room was to the beach. We also had a view of the ocean from our room (every room does). We had amazing sunsets every night. The resort itself is very well keep, clean, and peaceful.... More

The Diplomat is a condo style boutique hotel. They offer studio and one bedroom style "condo" type units that feature a full kitchen, and patios that overlook the Gulf of Mexico . The beautiful white sand beach is steps from your unit. The Diplomat grounds are nicely manicured with palm trees, tiki hut tables to eat outside or socialize and... More

The Diplomat has drawn us back to LBK several times in the past 6 years. We love the quirky boutique style of the resort. The rooms are comfortable. The management and staff are friendly and helpful.. The Diplomat is affordable and close to many amenities, world class restaurants, golf courses, bike trails and shopping on St Armands Circle. You can't... More

We always loved the Diplomat-went for many years. Decided to go for a few days in August. A wedding was taking place. The tents and all the people and music were not what were looking for! The wedding was lovely and we have no resentment for the bride, groom, and wedding party. The staff should have warned us, or moved... More

We chose this place to have our wedding, and most of the guests stayed as well. The property itself if beautiful and comfortable. The tiki huts, pool, and beach were so great to use. Since all of the units are individually owned, each one was very different. Our friends and family seemed to have very nice units with comfortable beds... More

My husband and I needed a weekend get away. I saw this on trip advisor and called. The people at the desk were very helpful over the phone. Once we got there they checked us in informed us of everything we needed to know about our condo. The complex is an older building but you would never know it. We... More
