Rooms are nice but small as others have mentioned. beds are very comfortable. We splurged and upgraded to a room with a balcony. Room was still same size but the view was awesome. A little costly but we knew that up front. Employees on the property could not have been nicer and friendlier. Always a help when needed. Pools were...

Although the hotel is a beautiful place I was disappointed about the service. We were there from May 12 through May 15th and we never got our room cleaned. The inconveniences of having the staff come in and clean while we were in the room should not have been. We made the best of it. The stay was expensive and...

Two pools are situated close to the beach, one for children and one for adults who can bring children with them. The resort is child-friendly both...

Wonderful hotel. Service was excellent. Stayed there 6 times previously, and would never stay anywhere else on St. Pete Beach. The pool and the beach are great, fantastic options for food and drink, and a wonderful view as well. Staff could not be nicer!

I was there for a conference and loved it! The view is amazing. The service was great. The food was incredible, even at the pool. I had shrimp cocktail and it was so fresh. I did not have too much interaction with the hotel staff but when I did they were kind. The one pitfall I would say is that...

Since the Don was purchased from Loew's a few months back I have seen a small but steady decline in the quality of the service. Ice cream cones were old and stale, service at the Sea Porch not up to Don standards. The Sunday brunch went from excellent to very mediocre. I live in the area and really hope the...
