The hotel is beautiful and I love the history. The views of the beach are nice and it's convenient to be situated right on the beach. However, you will be nickel and dimed for everything. It is not worth the price of admission and our room had only one night stand.

First time visit to the area. The 'Don' has everything a hotel should have. Plentiful eating options, multiple bar locations, pool, gulf facing property, clean rooms and comfortable beds. There are shopping options on the ground floor. Great place.

A First Class historical hotel in a beautiful setting with attention to every detail of service. You won't be disappointed and if you are then you are looking to be. Great for small-mid sized meetings and/or a weekend getaway. I've visited several times and plan to continue.

Maybe it's because my surprise honeymoon was here or the HUGE ice cream cones, but this hotel is and always will be a favorite. It's pink, who doesn't like a beautiful pink hotel on the beach? Great lobby, comfortable rooms, nice beach.

Though the staff is helpful and friendly, there is no quiet place to hang out and read or relax, except in one's room. It rained the entire time we were there, so one could not hang out at the pool or on the beach. The lobby/lounge is a cacaphony of sound...loud music that is unnecessary in the afternoon. The hotel,... More

Great old hotel with beautiful beach for walking, nice pools, bars and meeting rooms. Nice semi-tropical landscaping, great feeling on arrival. Rooms nicely appointed but small. Pools heated with good service for drinks and food.

My sister and I booked a room through trip advisor and were completely enamored of the idea of a pink resort on the beach. Lowe's Don Ce Sar lived up to it's reputation and then some. We had a lovely room facing the ocean, not the room we first were assigned, but it took a moment to change rooms to... More

Visited the hotel with my family as a pre-Christmas break and loved it. Located on one of the nicest beaches I have ever been on! Ate in all the restaurants and food was great. Unfortunately did not get to use all the hotel facilities but the pool area was fantastic. Great service, couldn't complain! Definitely what we all needed before... More

This is a beautiful old historic property. It's worth going once just to see the building itself. However, the rooms are extremely small. It reminded us of the hotel rooms in New York or Paris. The bathrooms are also very tight.
