Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • There’s an astounding array of options to choose from. With over 200,000 square feet of award-winning outdoor and indoor event areas, many of which feature waterfront views, the Diplomat artfully blends flexibility with function and beauty.
  • Everything you’ll need for a perfect wedding weekend is within reach. Because The Diplomat is a full-service beach resort, you’ll find pools, cabana rentals, six on-site restaurants, bars, a fitness center, a spa, and outstanding access to the sand and shore. You and your guests will have no need to leave once you’re here.
  • If you do venture away from the resort, you’ll find no shortage of things to do. Nicely situated between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, charming Hollywood has a historic boardwalk and a cute downtown, accessible by trolley car. Take a water taxi ride to explore the area, or look for alligators and other wildlife on a fascinating tour of the Everglades.
