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 oasis

The best view. The best beach. The best pool. The best bar on the beach/pool.the nicest balcony. This beats the fountain blue. This propert doesnt over charge on food snacks drinks and coffee. This is why I came back and would never dtay at the fountain blue in south beach. We loved the small walk to the hollywood board walk. 5 star vacation.

Great hotel...too crowded and rest. closes too early...

First of all the staff is outstanding. Also, the rooms are really nice with HUGE balconies. We really loved that part of it. There were 2 issues however. WAY TO BUSY ON MANY LEVELS. Pools and beach front is WAY TOO CROWDED and CRAMPED. They pack them in like sardines on the beach. Also, we took the car out for brunch and when we returned to valet we had to wait over twenty minutes at the front drive to valet because they were so busy. Also, they have a beachfront restaurant/bar that closes every night at 8 sharp. That is WAY too early. If you are looking for comfort and don't mind be crammed in at the pool and beach then you'll be happy. Also, again, staff was A+.

Great stay! Loved my corner room on 27th floor!

Had a inter coastal partial ocean view King room on the 27th floor with a wrap-around balcony view was spectacular! Great pool and quick and easy access to the beach. As other reviewers have already stated the poolside restaurant "splash" drinks and food are pricey & quality is mediocre. Staff very friendly & accommodating. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again.

Weekend trip June 2014

Stayed overnight due to having to be in the area the next morning for a wedding reception. Hotel is on the upper-end of the 4* spectrum, overall. It is right on the beach and has several nice pools and restaurants on-site. It looks and feels very high-end and comes close (I said close) to some of the 5*'s I've stayed at over the years in terms of appearance. The cons that I noticed are this: 1) self-parking ($20/night) is actually across the street in a separate garage, not exactly convenient, but not a huge deal. 2) We stayed in a larger, "deluxe" room and the bathroom contained a large tub, which I could care less about. The shower was tiny. Overall, I would have no problems staying here again if I was in the area.
