My Perfect Day

What to do in a place like this if you only have 24 hours?

Why not head out and explore a bit of Hollywood, Florida? This historic beach town has one of the country’s best boardwalks. Enjoy a stroll beachside or cool down with a delicious ice cream while you shop for the perfect souvenir – all just steps from the resort. After the boardwalk, make sure to visit the Arts Park at Young Circle featuring interactive fountains designed by internationally acclaimed public artist, Ritsuko Taho of Japan. Stay and enjoy a variety of cultural events any time of the year. Continue your way through this lively town and head over to Aventura Mall for a great shopping experience. If you’re in search of a more high-end shopping experience, head to the Shops at Bal Harbour. Enjoy a delectable meal at Makoto, one South Florida’s premier Japanese restaurants.

Now you’re ready for a night out! Spend the night on the town in one of the city’s best places for gaming and entertainment, The Village at Gulfstream Park – only three miles from Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood. Shop, dine, catch a live show or try your luck on the races. Gulfstream Park will quickly become one of your favorite entertainment destinations in South Florida.

Where to Stay: The Diplomat Beach Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton

My impression

Elegant. Grand. Luxurious. Upon entering the hotel, you are immediately greeted by a grand lobby – complete with beautiful fountains, palm trees and soaring windows looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean.

My experience

From the moment you arrive you appreciate the outstanding service and attention to detail provided by a friendly and welcoming team, who will ensure your stay is a seamless retreat. Miles of golden sand, turquoise water and striking views of the Intercostal Waterway confirm you’re in the middle of a paradise. There is a myriad of activities that cater to all. You can simply relax on the beach or poolside, or plan an entire day filled with fun activities and delicious meals. This includes everything from on-property jet ski rentals to enjoying a massage at Diplomat Spa and a culinary adventure at Diplomat Prime – the resort’s AAA Four Diamond restaurant. Water sports, golf and fishing are all at your fingertips during your stay. The hotel also boasts a one-of-a-kind infinity-edge pool with two waterfalls overflowing into a 240-foot lagoon pool. Just lay back and enjoy the view from a poolside cabana while sipping refreshing libations from the Splash Poolside Grille & Bar.
