First day at Don CeSar and down to the beach. Had heard how helpful the beach staff was - and Andrew lived up to every great review. He quickly explained the various chair and cabana options and deals available to guests. He set everything up in perfect location, handled all our questions, and was a very personable young man. He...

We used to go to Don Cesar when was a Loews Hotel, now when we arrived last Thursday we noticed that is not anymore managed by Loews but an unknown company. The hotel is OK, but the service is still not trained to a 4 star hotel. Napkins and Silverware at the pool restaurant were not properly washed, we had...

As a local I come out to the Don CeSar a couple of times a month with friends. I have to say it is a great way to spend your afternoon on the beach. The servers and beach attendants are great! Most recently I was helped out with some chairs by Andrew, Joe and Zach. There was a young man...

Rooms and bathrooms are small. Resort old and needs updating. Small pool and bar. Overall we felt the resort and restaurants were over-priced. Location is not ideal for walking. Manager and customer service upon check in was very abrupt. We felt like just another customer. When we arrived to our room it had two double beds. We explained we reserved...

My husband and I recently enjoyed several days at The Don. We traveled from cold, dreary Boston and left The Don feeling relaxed and rejuvenated thanks to beach walks and sunny skies. We found the staff attentive, food tasty, yogurt parfaits for breakfast quite yummy and the workout classes led by Diane were terrific in variety and style.

Had a such a wonderful and relaxing day with my sister at The Don. My sister lives in Georgia so she doesn't get to enjoy the beach very often. It was so great being waited on by such a sweet and hard working young man, Zach. Will definitely take another vacation there very soon!

Some of my girlfriends and I have come to the don a couple of times recently. We make the trip from Orlando. Brunch at the hotel is expensive but excellent. The boys out on the beach, Joe H, Michael, and Andrew are all fabulous. Both times we've been out we've been given nothing but the best of service. The server...
