My sister and I live in the area but every now and then we like to stop by the damn for a more than average beach day. We got a pair of chairs out on the beach and rented some paddle boards. The weather wasn't exactly perfect for this activity but all the employees were very helpful especially Dante when...

My stay at the The Don CeSar was excellent. The young men at the water sports station were very attentive, polite, and HELPFUL. I greatly recommend this place to visit, you won't regret it. Some of the young men's name were Dante, Tyler, Matt & Cam. These boys deserve some sort of recognition for their hard work & professionalism. Thanks...

This was our first visit to The Don CeSar so we splurged and paid extra for the Grand Gulf View King with balcony room. We were very disappointed to find that when we opened the bathroom door, it barely cleared the toilet! The bathroom was so small one person could barely move around. The room was lovely but we found...

Our family is local and we enjoy the hotel and brunch often however, the Easter brunch this year was a total disappointment. Whether valet parking or simply attempting to enter the parking lot provides many opportunities for improvement. The check in process for brunch which starts down stairs and continues upstairs is very inefficient and needs to be streamlined. While...

This was our first time at The Don CeSar. The interior hallways are beat up and in need of paint as are the baseboards, etc. in the rooms. Initially, we had a room with two doubles that was terrible- couldn't even move around! We moved our second night and management was very kind and accomodating. (King rooms had been sold...

We arrived to survey the Don Cesar for future stays and enjoy Sunday Bruch 4/23. This review is for the brunch only. The hotel needs repair but the brunch was a disaster ...realizing our expectation to its reality. Arrived at 10:45 and waited for 11 reservation, watched people at buffet and assumed that was standard buffet. At 11 we were...

I rented a cabana on Saturday and felt like a total queen! Both Andrew and Keith were quick, attentive and VERY respectful and courteous while letting me relax in peace on my day off. Keith somehow knew appropriate times to come to refresh my drink and Andrew had everything set up quickly without a long wait. I was hesitant about...

Enjoy newly redesigned 277 luxurious rooms including 36 suites, many with spectacular views of the pristine Gulf beaches or Boca Ciega Bay.
