... and one little fellow looked simply gorgeous in a hat. I hope I can add a photo of Joseph for you. The food was again decadent but the weather turned and the boat was rocking and rolling and there were quite a few people looking a bit green around the gills...Emma being one of them. Hopefully the weather will calm as we have a whole day and half at sea and of course the plan was for more relaxing around the pool, more cocktails and more food.....some of the best laid plans come unstuck ...

This put me in a great mood and what made it even better was that I convinced my new American friends to miss there flights home to stay for longer. A limo came and took us to Nikki Beach bar which was situated right on the beach where the beer garden was on the sand itself. With cushions covering the floor, it made for an awesome place to drink before hitting up the dance floor...
... the guide demonstrated the 3 experiments to prove the magnetic effects either side of the line. With a square, portable sink he drained a bucket
full of water directly on the Equator line where the water drained straight down. He then moved it a few yards into the Southern hemisphere where it drained clockwise, before repeating it in the
Northern hemisphere where it drained anticlockwise. I always thought it was a myth but obviously not. Melissa had a scare just prior ...
... to-do's. You might have to spend a week here if possible. As a capital city, Beijing is relatively new comparing with Xian which had been a capital city of China for 13 dynasties. Because of this, the tourist spots here are relatively new and well preserved. What we are going to see here are mainly heritages from Ming and Qing Dynasties.
Beijing travel requires a lot of walking. It is not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa Hallandale
Let me start off by saying that I am a Hilton Honors Silver VIP, and usually stay in Hilton Brand Hotels 5-10 times a year, and other brands another 5-10 times a year.
Romantic and Beautiful Hotel
This Hotel is a beautiful and romantic hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone not overly interested on staying directly on the beach. The views overlook the golf course green. The staff at the hotel was top quality. The dining experience was romantic and delicious. This hotel is defiantly a return location for me.
Marble baths & floors, super clean with very little room for allergins, the windows OPEN if needed, and the staff is super. Small hotel with a lot of plusses.
I checked into the Diplomat Hotel with my yorkie under my arm since I was advised by reservations that they were indeed a dog friendly hotel. I was told that I was to hide my dog for the entire weekend that I was spending at their facility. As terriers are prone to do, my dog barked during the night. This caused the front desk to remove my dog from my room while I was out of the room. I was asked to leave the hotel by seven o'clock the next morning because of my sevn pund dog. I am stilltrying to get the refund that was promised to me.
Stayed here on the weekend of May 20, 2005. I travel for business and stay in hotels approx. 100+ nights a year. As a platinum Starwood member we were upgraded to a golf course view and provided drink coupons (2 per night) and a continental breakfast coupon (1 per night). After check-in they also brought up a fruit and cheese plate amenity.
I just stayed here with my wife for a little getaway. If you are looking for a resort with very few people, quiet atmosphere and a little peace and quiet then this is the resort for you. Wherever we went - the pool, restaurant, golf, lobby - there were only a few people there at a time.
We just returned from 5 days at the Diplomat Country Club and we had a great time. Service was terrific (they greeted us by name when we walked in the front door), food was great, rooms were very nice with luxurious baths.....golf course was well manicured with lots of water and we enjoyed the unlimited use of the driving range and putting green. Spa was beautiful..and very well appointed....only complaints might be that the Spa services were a bit overpriced for what you received ($140 for a 50 minute massage inc gratuity and the same for a standard facial) but we enjoyed them nonetheless.....and the hot tub at the main pool was broken as was the one in the men's spa locker room (but I am sure they will be fixed soon) It was a terrific place to get away from it all..very very private and relaxing with great places to eat both at the Country Club,The Westin and surrounding area. This place was so quiet on two days my husband and I were the only people at the pool. If you want a romantic , quiet getaway...this is the place to go.
I love this property. The service is great. The rooms are beautiful. The spa is fabulous. Guests get to use the spa facilities free of charge including the fitness center, spa pool, steam room, etc. The spa has free water with lemon slices, herbal teas and fresh fruit. You can lounge around by the pool all day. It is definitely a quiet place. Not great for kids. But if you want to relax, play some tennis or golf, or just get pampered, the Diplomat is the place to stay. The Westin Diplomat nearby has access to the amenities at the Country Club for a fee. Country Club guests can also take the free shuttle to the Westin for other restaurants and the beach.
WOW Loved it
I just have to say that the Diplomat Country club has the best service I ever had in a hotel. The spa was incredible... it was like a dream. Thanks to the staff Chris, Jennifer and everyone else who made this possible. Links grill was awsome and the facilities for golf and tennis were GREAT! I just have good things to share with friends and family about this experience.
