Beautiful historical hotel, but way overpriced.

Posted Oct 6, 2017
Gorgeous property and perfect location. However, they upcharge everything. Food is horrible, like microwave pizza. Your $25/ day resort fee doesn’t actually include anything, and they charge extra for beach chairs and towels! I can understand cabana rentals, but folding beach chairs for $15?!?! Rooms are SMALL but very nicely decorated and comfortable. 65” flat screen in a hotel room seemed a bit overkill for the small space, but it was nice to watch the fish tanks channel on.

Beautiful hotel with a perfect beach.

Posted Oct 4, 2017
Pros: The historic Pink Palace and the perfect beach.
Cons: The food quality has declined since our last visit.
Location: Great location on the Gulf.
Beautiful historic hotel on a perfect beach. The wonderful water of the gulf matched with the sugary sand of the beach makes the Don Cesar a great escape.

Great hotel right on the beach!

Posted Sep 21, 2017
Pros: Location to restaurants, beaches and airport.
Cons: WiFi is terrible.
We arrived at the hotel two days after they reopened from Hurricane Irma. The staff had worked diligently to open and the hotel was prestine. Every single employee there had to have had their own story of the impact of the hurricane on their own personal lives but you would never know have known it. Wonderful hotel, excellent staff! Thank you for a great stay.

Excellent hotel right on the beach

Posted Sep 19, 2017
Pros: Beach access, shops right in the resort, restaurants and ice cream shop all right there.
Cons: Hmmm, lower the prices a tad.
Location: Anything you might want is right within driving access.
LOVED this hotel/resort. It is a beautiful hotel (reminds me of the kind in the Carribean and Hawaii) right on the beach. Everything during our stay was outstanding.

A beautiful weekend away with my girlfriend. We needed a getaway, and this hotel was just what we needed.
