The hotel is super nice but very frustrating for a family on a budget. The meals are very expensive! Wife and two kids, approx. $80 to eat breakfast or lunch at hotel at any given time, double that for dinner. There is fast food close by but very inconvenient. We ordered two mixed drink when we arrived, vodka/water/ice/18% tip they...

The one thing that really amazed me about this hotel is the almost dream-like appearance of it. It is known as the pink palace for good reason! It is next to a beautiful beach where I have spotted a few wild dolphins, and has two outdoor pools which are warm and lovely to swim in. It is in a brilliant...

We had some work done in our house and had to leave for a couple days with our dog and seeing the Don Cesar is pooch-friendly, we decided to check it out! Although it may be a little more than you want to spend on a weekend, the service and quality of care from each and every staff member from...

Good consistency in this property. we stay here now every year after dropping our daughter to camp. I'm still perplexed by the "resort fee" as I don't see that all items listed are regularly available, such as Wine Tastings. the Standard rooms on the fist floor are quite large and we liked it better than the balcony room we had...

Enjoyed our stay at the Don mostly because of the staff who are friendly, outgoing, professional and responsive. They make the experience as well as the facilities and resort areas.

Beautiful hotel. Beds are extremely comfortable. Hotel lobby and pool are great. Staff was very accommodating. My only complaint is the cost of renting chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Way overpriced. Only did it one day and walked down to the beach the rest of the stay. Would also like a coffee pot in the room.

The people who work at the Don REALLY like their jobs. They're always smiling, always friendly, and always willing to help. While the rooms are a little small, given the hotel's history as a WWII hospital, the people far exceed all expectations. We had an excellent time. Traveled with my husband, two young kids, and mother-in-law last October. We will...

After spending seven weeks last summer in Hawaii, I was not sure that any Florida resort or beach could compare. But Don Cesar's luxury, quality, beach, pool, and location did not disappoint. Though only there three nights, we were blessed by good weather and did truly escape the Florida heat. We will be back!

My husband and I come to The Don once a year for a wonderful long weekend. It has become "our place" and we look forward to it every year! The service is exceptional and we always joke that our biggest decision we have to make is if which drink we want at the pool. Love The Don!
