This is the best hotel on St. Pete's Beach. The food and service are very good. My only complaint is that during prime season, this place gets crowed and so there are lines for breakfast and just about anything else. The hotel does a good job of accommodating,

The overall experience was very good to great. Friendly and helpful employees. The only downside was the size of the room, very little space to stow empty luggage. Had to slid under the desk to be out of the way. Minor inconvenience since most of our time was spent outside.

I recently met up with some friends at the Don Cesar to spend a day on the beach. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Nick and Michael of the beach staff who were both extremely helpful and attentive throughout the day. I will definitely be back and will also be recommending this location to my friends.

We had an amazing trip. Every employee was friendly, and very helpful. The highlight for me was the beach experience and the beach staff; Zach, Brian, Kurt and Andrew. Zach spent nearly the entire day making sure I was comfortable and had an amazing experience. Keith was also spoiling us, by bringing our food right to the beach. All of...

I live in the area and went the Don for lunch and sun. We were greeted on the beach by Andrew and he quickly set us up with clean comfortable lounge chairs. Brian,Zach and Kurt were all part of the helpful team. The beach was great and so was the bartenders at pool bar! Great Day at the Don Cesar!

Spent the day on the beach at the Don Cesar with friends. Kurt set us up right with the cabana. Andrew and Zack also gave us special attention. The weather was fantastic, not a cloud in the sky. Telling all my friends to spend a day at the Don. The service is great and the views are spectacular. A real...

Room was small but lovely. Great views, very clean and nicely appointed. Maritana restaurant was average, not great. Service OK. Lack of wine selections pitiful. Lobby bar was inconsistent in service. Tried dinner at the other restaurant which had long wait because staff hadn't shown up. Ran out of large coffee cups at breakfast. Couldn't get printed copy of bill....

Stayed here for 4 nights over Christmas. It's a really nice hotel but I think we expected more for the price of the room plus resort fee. The only part of the resort fee that we really used was the WiFi ... but this is free to all visitors, even people on the beach nearby. If you want to go...
