The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa Review

This colossal 39-story contemporary property has been instrumental in bringing style and pizzazz to Hollywood Beach with its massive, 60-foot-high atrium and casual-chic guest rooms. A signature of the resort is its 120-foot bridged infinity pool, extending from lobby to oceanfront. Rooms are light and spacious, and most have private balconies with amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. The Heavenly Spa nestles the Atlantic, too, and offers a number of pampering treatments, including a caviar facial. The Diplomat's beach underwent a renourishment project in 2012, meaning a longer, wider beachfront. The resort also offers excellent golf facilities with its championship 18-hole course managed by Troon Golf. Enjoy incredible steaks at Hollywood Prime, or head across to RIVALS Waterfront Sports Grille for American fare.

    Luxury beachfront property with corresponding prices

    The Diplomat is a luxury hotel with an attached convention center. It's big. But the pools, including an infinity pool, are great, although the pool scene can be chaotic and crowded. The hotel opens up to the beach, where we spent most of our time. The hotel restaurants are pricey, but especially good. We liked Aizia which specialized in Asian fusion. Nikki Marina had excellent seafood, but the place reeked of hip attitude. One piece of advice: When booking your reservation, find out if there is a convention going on. We were there at the same time as the Hooters Swimsuit competition, which drew decidely mixed reaction.
