7 Ways to Beat the Florida Heat and Enjoy the Water at The Diplomat Beach Resort - Family Traveller (USA)


There's nothing like a sunny family vacation at the beach and there's no better place to hit the water than The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida.

Under an Umbrella with Beachside Service

Just steps from your room you’ll find the ultimate playground for kids and parents alike: the beach! Enjoy the gentle Atlantic waves with your toes nestled in the sand. Soak in the famous Florida sunshine or savor the beach breezes under the shade of their signature pink umbrellas.

Poolside in a Private Cabana

For a less salty way to cool off, enjoy one of The Diplomat Beach Resort’s refreshing pools. Take in panoramic views of the ocean from the infinity pool, or dip your head under one of the two waterfalls that cascade into the snaking lagoon pool. And if you’re looking for an all-day home base where the whole family can lounge, poolside and upper deck cabanas are available for rent.

Making a Splash at Dip+Slide

Kids will flip over this fun water park where they can splash down two water slides, set off water cannons and run through the splish-splash fountains. Set above the Lagoon Pool, it also has plenty of comfy seating so parents can easily watch younger kiddos.

Renting a Pontoon Boat

There’s no better way to discover stunning South Florida than island hopping on a pontoon boat. Glide through turquoise waters with full or half day rentals. Cruising the coastal waterways is one family memory that will not be soon forgotten.

Taking a Paddleboarding Lesson

Never been paddleboarding but always wanted to give it a try? The Diplomat Beach Resort makes it easy with an experienced team that offers lessons and instruction on everything from the basics to paddleboard yoga. Got a need for speed? You can also rent a Jet Ski or cut through the waves in a kayak.

Doing Yoga on the Beach

No beach vacation is complete without some mind-clearing relaxation. If just laying by the beach isn’t enough, open your mind and body with an early morning flow set on the soft white sands.

At a Kid-Friendly Happy Hour by the Marina

Just across from the property, you’ll find the Diplomat Landing. Gaze on the resident yachts while enjoying bites at Portico. The waterfront beer and wine garden offers everything from local craft beers to signature cocktails, as well as fun outdoor games kids will love too, like corn hole and giant Jenga.
