The Diplomat is ideal---reasonably priced, variety of condo floor plans that are updated/nicely decorated, wonderful staff, beautiful beach with cat paw shells & birds like white ibis, great blue heron, brown pelican, royal tern, great & snowy egret. Highly recommend & plan to return!

Spent one week at the Diplomat in April,. We rented a studio condo (unit 220) which was good for 2 people. There was a pull out couch which I am not sure if there would have been enough space to use. The furnishings were very nice and thought the unit was very well kept. The kitchen was well stocked, We... More

I've been vacationing at St. Pete Beach for over 15 years, this year was looking for a change. A coworker made this recommendation. I will thank her forever as it couldn't have been better, it totally exceeded my expectations. The view and proximity of the Gulf was not to be believed, it was peaceful, the other guests were all easy... More

Walk out your door and onto the clean, beautiful beach in Longboat Key. An eclectic array of privately owned stuios and one bedroom units. Website has pictures of each unit. Make sure that you look at all the options and book early. We waited too long and our studio was clean but dated. It was #218. It's owner needs to... More

My family and I have been staying at this condo annually since discovering it in 1991. We call it our home away from home. It's the perfect place to relax, recharge, and spend quality family time together. The best part is you are right on the beautiful peaceful beach!

We stayed in 240, a one-bedroomed apartment on the upper level. It's very tastefully decorated and definitely a home-from-home. The views from the balcony are spectacular at any time of the day but particularly at sunset when the colours are a photographer's dream! It was fairly quiet when we stayed - no children running around which was definitely a bonus... More

Great property location but if the constant smell if cigarette smoke bothers you BEWARE ( unless you sit in your condo all day) I have never experienced this at a resort before so I was very surprised.

This is the perfect place to spend your vacation. The room has everything you need and is situated right on the beach. You can watch beautiful sunsets and Dolphins swimming in the sea from your window. Best spot we have stayed so far on the west coast.

We stayed at the diplomat for about a week in a studio room and enjoyed it thoroughly. The room was clean. It was made up every day. Convenient to shopping.Close to St. Armand's Circle and write on a wonderful beach looking out at the Pacific.
