Visited this "resort" over the Memorial Day weekend. We were traveling with another couple and celebrating our kid's birthday. Thought of trying something other than Miami. This property is very old, outdated, and with extremely small rooms. For the money charged (room, resort fee, premium at pool, etc), I'd much rather visit Miami Beach. The furniture was outdated and the... More

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of staying at the Don with my parents and brother for our annual family vacation. We had never been to Tampa, but a friend recommended we check out the Don after attending a work conference there. To say we had a memorable stay is an understatement. From the moment we arrived, we... More

Overall, this is a beautiful hotel with great service and we would definitely go back. However, we'll be more strategic with the calendar, a holiday weekend was a poor choice. The most notable service was in-room dining, everyone was extra friendly and the food was delicious! My biggest grievance was the beach rentals, specifically the luxury beach bed. The policies...

I love this hotel. It was very peaceful and our room was designed and painted for peace. I love the history behind this historically significant property and I encourage those interested to read up on it. I purchased a book they sold in one of the lower shops on the story of Don CeSar's, aka the Pink Palace. The Loews... More

We were getting married at St petes this May and we had booked a suite, we were lucky enough to be offered an upgrade to a penthouse for a small fee! The 3 bedroom penthouse overlooking the city! What an amazing experience! All rooms are furnished to a very high standard and the views are beautiful. It was so refreshing... More

We had a wonderful Anniversary Dinner at The Sea Porch Restaurant. Our main server was Zach and he was excellent as were the other servers who helped in bringing out our meal. Everything was delicious. It was a very special evening and a wonderful experience.

We had a lovely room with a view of the beach, very comfortable and quiet. The pool area can be a bit noisy so we spent our time on the beach where the staff did a great job of looking after us. The Maritana seafood restaurant is always exceptional.

We love it when we're someone's favorite! And thanks for allowing us to be one of yours! I'm happy that you enjoyed your room, and found it comfortable and quiet. I'm just as happy that you found some solitude on the beach! The Boucher Brothers, who manage our beach operations, do an excellent job and we're proud to be associated... More

We decided to visited the Don Cesar during Memorial Day weekend for 3 nights in a junior suite with an ocean view. Staying here on a prior trip, I knew what to expect minus the most recent additions taking place during the last refurbishment schedule. There’s no doubt the hotel is impressive and contains a cornucopia of historical importance. A... More

The first two days we couldnt rest because they were drilling and hammering at 7-8am in the next room. The service was good, the beach is very beautiful. The adult pool was perfect, the kids pool was over chlorinated. They have a lot of entertainment downstairs suchs as ping pong and pool. Next time will visit the Spa.

I'm glad to hear that despite the noise, you experienced an overall "good" experience with us. Glad you had fun at the pools with all the entertainment we offer and I do suggest that you find time during your next stay to visit Spa Oceana! You will leave feeling "blissful!"
