We paid for a "Deluxe" room. We arrived late and was told it was a city view and one of the staff mentioned that if she was staying - she would prefer to stay at that side of the hotel. The view turned out to be that of the car park - and we could not see a city. We... More

Excellent hotel with great staff.They were very attentive but also respected your need to relax and unwind.While the add on charges for the resort and parking and even the newspaper will increase the cost if your visit.Remember we pay for an experience and mine was very enjoyable.

The resort was beautiful! We had a great getaway with the kids (ages 8 & 10). There was plenty to do eat and drink. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating, even for our little picky eaters. The pools were well kept and heated and the private beach was well manicured and just a short walk from the hotel pool... More

Went for a birthday trip and was completely disappointed. Hidden fees upon checkout that we were not told about. Rundown and unprofessional. Terrible pool and dirty, overpriced bar with terrible drinks. Be ready to overpay for everything. We won't be back.

This is a great getaway hotel that you never have to leave from while on vacation. Rooms- Rooms can be pricey but probably won't be spending too much time in the room. All the rooms from what we could tell were reasonable in terms of cleansiness and modern so if you are like we were, go with a cheaper room.... More

We live within an hour's drive, so about once or twice a year we like to spend a night at the beach and enjoy what is in "our backyard". I had been to wedding at the Don nearly 15 years earlier, but never been a guest. I was completely impressed. The main impression is the staff's friendliness. Everyone was very... More

This was my third business trip experience with the Don CeSar. Each time, I have been very satisfied with all aspects - (staff, room, in-hotel restaurant food and service, amenities, banquet services). I have no qualms about recommending this facility for business, family or personal trips. Don't forget to take the tour to learn about the history of this hotel.... More

Enjoy newly redesigned 277 luxurious rooms including 36 suites, many with spectacular views of the pristine Gulf beaches or Boca Ciega Bay.
