With its glowing pool decks that spill with waterfalls, and suites facing the Atlantic, the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa is effortlessly cool. This Florida beachfront resort offers two outdoor pools, full-service spa, water recreation, beach volleyball and six on-site restaurants. The hotel also provides guests access to a golf course, a tennis center, and a fitness studio, as well as jogging gear rental and maps for anyone looking to go for a jog on the beach. The Westin Kids Club takes care of the little ones with regular Friday parties, so parents can chill out in the posh, high-ceiling steakhouse, Hollywood Prime. Everyone can indulge in a little poolside ice cream, or a slushy at the Splash Bar during the day, but 'solo missions' to the Heavenly Spa are always available - its wide glass windows and wave motif decor facilitating seaside manicures.

Accommodations at this resort are fitted with cable flat-screen TV, refrigerator, and work desk with ergonomic chair, while select rooms feature a private balcony. The resort's signature restaurant, Hollywood Prime, is known for its dry-aged beef and the season's freshest seafood. Casual dining options include small plates, sushi and cocktails at BarSu, beachfront eatery Splash Bar & Grille, The Cafe featuring a breakfast buffet and delectable menu for lunch, or RIVALS Waterfront Sports Grille offers Contemporary American bar fare, including Kobe beef mini-hamburgers, with indoor and dockside seating.

The best hotel ever

I've stayed at the Westin Diplomat three times. It has always been wonderful. The head of the reception area is charming and so full of life. The staff really know how to be responsive and amenable. The pools are perfect. Security is excellent. The beach is delightful. They've lost one restaurant, which is too bad. I would enjoy more vegan/vegetarian food... but that is all I can think of to make the place better.

Great value and great location

The Westin Diplomat was absolutely perfect. Went down for a guys weekend when going to a Miami Dolphins football game. Facility was very impressive, staff was outstanding, and the grounds were beautful. Location was a short ride from the airport, beach area wasn't huge but still very nice, and we were a short ride to Sun Life Stadium too. Pool area was fantastic. Only negatives were prices of breakfast buffet was a little steep, and so was overnight valet parking, both at $25 each. But other than that, room price was a great value and a perfect location for some rest and relaxation!

Beautiful hotel on a beautiful beach

My friend and I came to town to see a concert and we absolutely loved the Westin Diplomat. We had plenty to keep us busy, the staff was very accommodating, and the hotel was beautiful. We spent a lot of time at the beach and pools. I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent hotel - great staff - accessible location

My visit was pleasant, the staff was amicable and ready to help, the room was clean, lack of air circulation while the room is empty. don't have complaints only a few suggestions: for those renting a car, the self-park is a better option than valet parking, there is a possibility of long waits during peak hours. Only 25 minutes from South Beach a better option, in my opinion, for night life than Forth Lauderdale - Las Olas. Very near to a Walmart if you need to buy Sunblock, water or your favorite wine & spirits. My only recommendation for the hotel management will be, and I know this will be difficult to implement, is to work on an adult's only section, where the true Spa experience can be achieved, an adult's pool section highly desirable.
