My daughter and I recently headed down to South Florida for a mommy/daughter trip to The Diplomat Beach Resort. AKA…The Dip!
From the moment we drove up to the resort, we knew this was the perfect hotel for our getaway. The Diplomat Beach Resort is a luxury resort on the Atlantic Ocean and just minutes from Miami in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
There was so much to love about this resort. We wanted to share our favorites from The Diplomat Beach Resort and why it was perfect for your mommy/daughter getaway.
AMAZING Corner Suites
When we walked through the doors of our Corner Suite, we both gasped. The Corner Suites are truly spectacular! This suite was our favorite room category of ALL times and that says a lot, because we stayed in the Mickey Mouse Suite at the Disneyland Hotel. 😊 This suite was SPECTACULAR!
This room features a living room and separate bedroom. The floor to ceiling windows created a breathtaking view ocean throughout the entire suite. I almost looked like you could reach outside and touch the ocean.
I woke up every morning, just to see the sunrise.
In the evening hours, we could sit in the bedroom and watch the sunset over the city scape. All of the windows made this suite the ultimate room. We did spend a lot of time just enjoying the view.
EPIC Tropical Pool with Splash Park
I loved the tropical pool or really pools at The Diplomat. This resort had one huge pool on the 2nd deck with another pool underneath it on the 1st deck.
They even had a section of the top pool that was clear, so you could swim down and wave to people in the pool underneath.
Besides the tropical pool, there are tons of lounge chairs and cabanas (to rent). They even have a restaurant with live music in the evening hours. For the kids, they had a separate splash park with water slide.
You also have access to the beach for boogie boarding, body surfing, or just soaking up the sun.
If you are feeling like a sweet treat, you can pop over to the ice cream shop (just steps from the pools). We loved the ice cream shop so much that we hit it 3 times in one day! LOL!
Food…So Much DELICIOUS Food!
My favorite part of The Diplomat was the food! They had so many great restaurants. My favorite two restaurants are Point Royal and Monkitail.
The Point Royal by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We dined at breakfast and dinner. Both were just delicious featuring American inspired dishes. My favorites were the roasted potatoes and Pomegranate Glazed Short Ribs. So good!
The other restaurant just made us laugh. It was called Monkitail by Michael Schulson. This restaurant features Asian inspired dining. My daughter and I both loved the name! The menu was amazing with little samples. I love the sampling type menus, because it gives you the chance to taste a lot of different entrees. I can see why this restaurant was ranked the Best Hotel Restaurant in 2017 by USA Today. It was a great dining experience.
Come along with us on our weekend getaway to The Diplomat Beach Resort. We share our entire mommy/daughter getaway on our YouTube channel.
