Relax Poolside or Explore the Atlantic with Premium Amenities
Tucked into a slender barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, The Diplomat Beach Resort Hollywood, A Curio Collection by Hilton™, is in the heart of South Florida yet worlds apart. From here, it is a short drive to the attractions and activities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale, but don’t be surprised to find yourself enjoying more immediate pleasures just steps from your room.

Relax in a day bed on the beach or poolside cabana by the beachfront infinity pool, which sits atop two waterfalls cascading into a free form lagoon pool below. Stroll down to the Blue Wave-certified beach after stopping by Playa to pick up drinks and snacks. Here, you can pilot an ocean kayak or paddleboard into the warm Atlantic surf, strike up a beach volleyball game or snooze under an umbrella by the water. The choice is yours!

Experience All Hollywood Beach Has to Offer
Since 1920, the charming coastal town of Hollywood, Florida has been a favorite of travelers seeking a quieter, laid back alternative to nearby Miami and Fort Lauderdale. From here, only ten minutes south of Fort Lauderdale and twenty minutes north of Miami, everything you might want to see or experience in South Florida is just moments away.
