Overview

Top-notch coastal cuisine and staff at this beachfront hotel
Recent guests thought the bathrooms were small

As its name suggests, this hotel is located along Diamond Beach, one of New Jersey's select private beaches located about 5 miles northeast of Cape May. The property's 108 studios and suites all boast full galley kitchens, Keurig coffee makers and floor-to-ceiling windows with Atlantic Ocean views, plus many feature balconies. Despite the impressive sea views, several recent guests were disappointed with their digs due to the small size of the bathrooms. Outside of the accommodations, lodgers will find two on-site eateries: Coastal Blue, which serves fresh-off-the-boat seafood, and Bungalow No. 7, an oceanfront eatery known for signature cocktails and live music. Recent visitors described both the cuisine and the staff here as "outstanding," pointing out that the "amazing" dinners at Coastal Blue are not to be missed. The property is also home to a fitness center and a seasonal outdoor pool, along with a splash pool for kids. The beach staffs lifeguards from May through September, and there are umbrellas and loungers available for an additional fee.
