I just love a fabulous hotel. And The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida is like a one stop destination for fun. The hotel just underwent a major renovation (like 100 million dollars!) and it’s quite spectacular. It has an enormous lobby with a great bar.
There’s nothing like the feel of a cool hotel bar. Right?
You can enjoy the beach or two amazing pools…
This pool has a waterfall that would keep my kids happy for hours. And when your children get bored of that, there is a splash park with two water slides. At. The. Hotel.
Anyone hungry? Because you have soooo many choices. And unbelievably more coming soon. These are the ones currently open where you can find everything from fine dining to yummy food to go. Good luck if you’re indecisive.
There is the Diplomat Prime (a boutique steakhouse led by Executive Chef Nicolay Adinaguev), Bristol’s Burgers (at The Diplomat Landing Marina overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and $5 happy hour menu from 5 to 7 pm), Portico Beer & Wine Garden, Point Royal (created especially for the Diplomat by celebrity chef, restaurateur and television star Geoffrey Zakarian), Counterpoint (specialty espresso drinks, smoothies, sandwiches and salads) and The Canteen (convenience food and drinks).
I had the chance to eat at Point Royal which has indoor/outdoor seating and the resort’s only raw bar. I adore seafood so this was the perfect choice for me. See how happy I look…
We tried all kinds of creative seafood dishes like…
Crispy Crab Croquettes
Hamachi Crudo (Cranberry Relish, Cucumbers, Fuji Apples, Crispy Shallots)
GZ Butter Poached Lobster Roll
Braised Mussels (Kaffir Lime, Ginger, Coconut-Curry Broth)
The hamachi was my fave. And I still wish I had tried the Shrimp & Anson Mills Grits…house made shrimp andouille, cheddar, scallions and pickled mushrooms. Sounds so good.
Whether you are planning a destination or just looking for somewhere new to eat (or drink!) in South Florida, you will want to visit The Diplomat. Parking is complimentary if you visit any of the restaurants! What more do you want?! Go.
