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

We recently spent a full week at the diplomat where they hosted the wedding of our dreams! The diplomat is a ideal location for vacation! Perfect for families or couples! 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

I was at the resort for a destination wedding. I was so impressed with the facility. Even though it is an older resort, it was impeccably clean and well-maintained. They accommodated our every need (though we took over the entire resort). The staff was helpful and polite. The beach was beyond gorgeous. The sand and water were perfect. I am... More

All I have to say is amazing! We stayed for 3 nights and the staff was great! Anything you needed they were there for you. The rooms were amazing. You do not need to bring anything with you! The view and beach were beautiful! I would recommend The Diplomat to everyone!

I don't know where to begin so here it goes. My niece held her getaway wedding at The Diplomat the last week of May 2015. We booked the whole place and had 100 people there for 4 days, some of us were there the whole week. The condos are owned by individual people which makes them very different. Condo 245... More
