There are so many great beach resorts in South Florida,, one being the beautiful Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Fl. I was first introduced to this awesome resort when I hosted the August 2018 Girl's Night Out event in the lobby. Check out the photocap from that night: Ft Lauderdale Girl's Night Out Aug at The Diplomat
So I decided to go back for a full weekend to see how a couples getaway vacation at The Diplomat would be. I am happy to say that it was a lovely vacation spot that I highly recommend you all experiencing!
From top rated oceanfront dining, pristine beach lounging, beautiful pools, and luxurious suites- this resort is one not to miss. There is so much to do, you may need to book extra days to visit the beautiful local area! Rooms are spacious with awesome views of the ocean and pools. The infinity pool is pthe perfect way to spend a day relaxing and their friendly staff will deliver cocktails and food to your lounge chair or cabana! The beach is only steps away.
A visit here, allows you the chance to experience Hollywood's historic oceanfront boardwalk, which listed among America's 'Best Beach Boardwalks' by Travel + Leisure magazine, only one mile away
