    Do not hesitate, book this hotel! A+

    Do not hesitate, book this hotel. It's a full resort, you don't have to leave the resort for anything - it's perfect. When I was researching where to stay in Fort Lauderdale, I researched two options, Fort Lauderdale Beach or a bit farther south at Hollywood beach. I didn't want to be as far south as Miami beach (wanted to stay out of that craziness). There are so many options to book, it was hard to make a decision but I was so happy with my decision to book the Diplomat. Everyone that I encountered from the Valet to the pool staff at the Diplomat was all about service. Bar service was fast, the beach attendants -- everyone -- was top-notch. We had an oceanfront balcony and the room was spacious and extremely clean. You will not be dissapointed.

    Not worth it - pick somewhere else

    For the price of the hotel (all-in $600 per night) this hotel was disappointing and is full of surcharges. $45 per day mandatory resort fee yet $30 per day additional charge for beach umbrella (how is it that a beqch resort fee doesn’t include an umbrella?) No in-room safe but they will being one up to your room for $35 per day. Not on boardwalk. Wifi did not work. Even after going to the front desk and they agreed it did not work and a call from their IT person there was no Wi-Fi and no further follow up. 20% gratuity is added to everything and while is is typical of this area it is not typical for the US and nobody points this out when delivering a check.
