A fantastic, relaxing, luxurious experience at the right price. The pool and beach service was very good. Everyone we encountered from the resort staff was was ready to help with a smile. We will be returning in the future.

We love to stay at the Don Cesar in St. Pete Beach because of the services available especially at the pool. Yes, you pay for the services provided but it's nice. We checked in very late (around midnight) and the front desk was pleasant. We were upgraded to a full view room and the accommodations were great- they've done some... More

If you are looking for a top line 5 Star resort this is the place for you. Once you park your car there really is no reason to leave as the Don has everything you need.

Once again my stay at the Don Cesar was a spectacular experience. Everything about this beautiful, stylish beach resort is wonderful. Couldn't have had a nicer stay. Oddly enough, this was a business trip that was extremely productive. I think the beautiful atmosphere put everyone in a very positive, energetic and creative mindset which greatly enhanced our meeting productivity.

When I went to check in at 3pm, my room was not ready yet. It is a great location. The rooms are too small, especially the bathrooms. The rooms are very clean. You have a $25 resort fee included with all rooms. The only "WOW" factor is the outside appearance of the hotel. The service is very good. The food... More

Upon arrival I knew there was going to be some flags. Courtesy and manners from the bellboys were lacking. The readiness from the front desk was not really with happy smiles. Two red flags before even getting into the room. The rooms were small and dusty on top of furnitures. My parents room separate floor had leaks and had to... More

Can't think of one bad thing to say about it. Staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Hotel looks like it came from out of a dream.
