It's a St. Pete icon. If you can afford it, then go. I couldn't afford it, but I still went and we had a fabulous time. Definitely worth it. I could spend all day ordering Froses at the pool. Rooms are on the smaller side, but you shouldn't be spending all your time in the room anyway. Enjoy the facilities, they're second to none!

Such a disappointing experience. The management and the service was ABSOLUTELY terrible.The rooms and bathrooms were so small that reminded me of the cruise ship cabins!! the mini bar was dirty. The AC was making a loud buzzing noise. I would never stay there again and do not recommend it to anyone either.

Overall experience was very good. Would definitely stay here again. The pool and beach amenities are great. Even on busy days we were able to find chairs. Food and experience at Maritana was great. The staff at the Lobby Bar are awesome! Marissa, Mikey, Nicole, and Sally were all super friendly. Rooms were clean and a good size. Bed was comfortable. Only complaint was service at The Society Table/Rowe Bar. The hostesses were not friendly or helpful. Once seated the service was incredibly slow even if the restaurant/bar was pretty empty. If you want a cocktail don’t forget your ID in your room! Server will inspect it like you’re a 19 year old on spring break.

Too many people during our stay, looks like the hotel is not setup on the volume, from self parking, to chairs and available towels on the beach. Pile of luggage in top of the entrance of your premier restaurant, right off the lobby, not a good location or overall appearance...looks strange, chip. not coming back...sorry

Visiting the country’s #1 beach should be best enjoyed at this gem of a hotel. The beautiful Pink Palace of the Don CeSar on St Pete Beach is gorgeous with its Gatsby vibe and provides a VIP stay. Love the attention to detail and the incredible staff! We thoroughly had the best beach vacation!
