It had been years since we last visited the Don Cesar, an historic resort on beautiful St. Pete's Beach. The service is impeccable in all areas except for the spa and the beach services, which are run by contractors who obviously don't hew to the hotel's standards. The front desk, concierge, bell staff, valets and pool attendants are all exceptionally... More

This review purely relates to the beach. GOT my cabana set up just like I wanted , whole staff was amazing all day long. Shout out to Justin for ensuring we were in the shade when we wanted to be, and sunning at the right times. Everyone was just the right amount of attentive. Piña colada and portobello mushroom sandwich... More

We couldn't have selected a better place to get married. Absolutely beautiful and amazing service from top to bottom. Being from out of state and planning a wedding was tough but Lauren Jones made things a breeze, truly a delight to work with. I'm always looking for other excuses to host there!

From the time we pulled up to the doors to the time we left we experienced nothing but professional, cordial & accommodating staff members. The hotel speaks for itself. It's positively charming, sparkling clean & sits on one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. The rooms have everything you need. They're bright & clean. Housekeeping service every day...

We were traveling the gulf coast and stopped by St.Pete Beach. We looked at other places and even got room keys. This place is a little expensive but top knotch in every way. The history behind this hotel is amazing.

Took our teen daughter here during spring break. It was wonderful. The staff was friendly and super helpful as the hotel is huge and its easy to get lost. I was worried about some of the reviews stating the size of the rooms being so small but in an older hotel like this our room was sized just right, (I've... More

It doesn't get much better than the Don in St. Pete. They had a free cocktail hour in the lobby, activities on the beach and live acoustic music on the pool deck during the day (priceless). We went to a seafood place only 5 minutes away called Snappers which was great. Matt, the pool bar manager, was incredible! He was... More

We are just back from 4 nights at this historic and beautifully run hotel. Can't say enough about the excellent service in all areas inside and out at the beach. 3 restaurants in hotel with very fresh local food prepared excellently. The beach has the most silky sand ever. They run machines over it every night and it creates what... More

European feeling with excellent service. The only negative for us was that the hotel messed up our reservation and instead of the confirmed inter-connecting rooms we got the next best option. Various vouchers and free parking offered by the hotel management made up for it though. The hotel has a beautiful private beach where the sand as soft as in... More

My wife and our 6 month old son enjoyed a day at the beach. Scott ensured we had everything we needed to relax by the beach. Brittany was our server - both were very friendly and offered great service.
