My husband and I found a great deal on sniqueaway.com and decided to try this place out. It is a gorgeous hotel and it obviously has a lot of history. It is much older than most luxury hotels I've stayed at, and it shows. That being said, it is still beautiful! Although certain parts could use some refurbishing, it is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Don Cesar ending of July 2011 and we enjoyed our stay very much...There are though a couple of things: the rooms are small, the bathroom is small, and the fact that it's a pet friendly hotel is horrible...Aside from all that, the rooms are REALLY REALLY clean, the staff is REALLY nice, the...

The rooms and overall hotel and outdoor spaces were clean. The pool looked a little rough towards the end of the day, need to clean up used cups, napkins, ect. more frequently. Pool cushions look new, towels are ready to be replaced. Good drinks at the pool, worth the $10-$12 price tag. The rooms were WAY TOO SMALL and the... More

Wow, what a disappointment. This hotel does not come even close to the caliber that is portrayed on it's website. Thank goodness we got a great room rate (compared to normal Don rates) or we would have checked out the day we checked in. We made our anniversary reservation for a king bed. To our dismay we were placed in... More

While this is gorgeous from the outside and the rooms ARE very nice, I think the rate for the rooms are waaay overpriced. I stayed here for my 50th birthday and also rented a room for my daughter and her husband so they could join us. When we checked in at 5:30 p.m., they told me that my suite was... More

This is a beautiful hotel from the street, and of course it has a lovely beach. But that's where the positives ended. We arrived two hours past check in time and our room wasn't ready. Some of our party didn't get into their rooms until 9 - that's right - 9 p.m! When we did walk into the room, the... More

We stayed for three nights at the Don Cesar. Previously we have stayed at the Beach House when we stayed for a week. The Don is a fine historical property. The public areas and rooms we fine. The beach, pools and Sea Porch Restaurant (excellent staffing and service) were our main focus when at the Don. It is well operated... More

We stayed at this hotel for a special occasion but I've been here many times as a child. If you are looking for value, look somewhere else, as the hotel is not for folks on a budget. Everything seemed expensive compared to most hotels I've recently stayed at. The hotel had a European feel, as there were tons of guests... More

The hotel itself, the pool area, and the beach are magnificent. Everything is well-appointed and feels luxurious. As for the service - I am shocked. For a 4-star hotel, the errors that went on during check-in were unacceptable. We were told our room was ready when we checked in early (which was great) but upon arriving to our room, the... More
