On up scale Long Boat Key, mostly casual but some dressy eateries. we stayed in a second floor studio with a taste of old Florida. Terrazo floors .. updated granite kitchen and flattop stove. We...

Beautiful Gulf sunsets; clean beach is just steps away, very peaceful. Just returned from my second visit to The Diplomat (01-2012 & 02-2013). WOW! Don't know where to begin with my praise.The new office staff is young, energetic, polite, considerate, helpful, upbeat. Previous staff gave me the impression they were there to just collect a pay check.The cleaned up office... More

Great studio kitchenette right on the beach for $163/night complete. We don't need the aminities of a hotel but like the use of refrigerator to store our food and drinks. Reported leak in BR sink and fixed immediately. Daily maid service. Igrets, blue heron on lanai, pelicans in the ocean and many sea gulls on beach. Shell collecting. Free parking.... More

Beautiful location. Quiet beach at your doorstep. Great service and a variety of Condo choices. Our choice Unit 219 was close to the pool, clean and nicely appointed, king size bed with a bedroom TV. Convenient nearby restaurants. Glorious sunsets.

What a great place to go and relax. Located right on the beach. Great sunsets every night. We stayed in room 226 and 228. One was a 1 bedroom and the other a efficiency. Both kitchens are well equiped. You can have them as separate rooms or you can open door and have both. Rooms are clean. Great restaurants and... More

Fabulous week at the Diplomat. Location is perfect. Quiet, clean; friendly staff. The beach is very close and the sunset views spectacular. The cost is reasonable and site is close to many stores and restaurants. Highly recommend.

We just came back from a wonderful week at the Diplomat Unit #214 in Long Boat Key, Florida. The room was quite comfortable -- open the door and the beach is right there...very much a hidden treasure. The weather very nice, sunsets beautiful -- able to walk the beach daily. Love the pool - outside view of the Gulf of... More

From the moment we entered 256 located on the second floor, we were awe struck by the view captured through expansive windows. We felt like we were on a cruise ship. The friendly atmosphere of staff and repeat visitors quickly became contagious. While the building may appear dated it is well kept up. The living area is open and comfortably... More

Just spent a week at the Diplomat Resort on Longboat Key. Our room #229 was beautifully decorated, we had a well stocked kitchen, everything we needed was there. The beach was just a few steps from our ground floor room, the pool was great and the view is just amazing. Can't wait to go back, already booked the same room... More

We stayed at this resort in September 2012. The first thing you notice is the beach is only steps away from your room. Although the place appears to be an old-fashioned style motel, our room (262) had just recently been updated by the owner and had all the usual amenities you would expect including full size kitchen with dishwasher.
