Great place

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Had a great time everything you need is right there. Also a lot of great places to go not far from the hotel. Would stay there again.

Nice hotel not too crowded

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Our family had a nice stay over spring break. Although the hotel was booked, it didn't feel overly crowded. Pool was nice with a good musician during the day. Sunsets were beautiful.

Great pool and short walk from the pool to beach.

Posted Mar 21, 2015
My family had a great time in St Pete beach and at the Don Cesar. Our room was not ready upon arrival on Sunday afternoon at 3:30. We were told our room would be ready by 4 but we had to wait until 4:45. However, we were given drink vouchers ($24 value) to compensate. My 5 year old enjoyed the 3 hour free kids club daily and the staff at the kids club were so nice! The pool area was awesome and a close walk to the beach. The pool bar menu had a great Cuban sandwich but the fish wasn't great. My daughter is already asking if we can come back next year for spring break.

Beautiful hotel and gorgeous beach

Posted Mar 15, 2015
Only thing I was disappointed in was that we had to pay for chairs and umbrellas on beach since it was not included in resort fee. I was it aware of that.

Great close getaway

Posted Feb 10, 2015
We stay at the Don 1-2 times a year and are usually without complaint. The Maritana Grill is our favorite restaurant without question. This time though we were a bit disappointed. The food was not up to its usual standard. I had the diver scallops and I didn't even finish it. My husband's Pompano was average. Very surprising for the Maritana.

My apologies that your experience in Maritana Grille was not up to your expectations. I have sent your comments to the Chef and trust that should you visit us again, you will not have the same experience. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Best,
