The highlight of the afternoon was Capt. Mark's Banana Boat. He gave us a wonderful tour of St. Pete Beach!! Thanks again Capt. Mark!! we look...

I stayed at Don CeSar with my wife and 8 year-old daughter. Hotel location was just perfect, and the white sand beach was surreal. The hotel was top-notch including the customer service. My only complaint was that the mattresses weren't terribly comfortable, although my mattress at home is the most comfortable ever. We rented jet skis while at the hotel...

Hotel was very good and Spa was GREAT. Will come back for the Spa. I will say the bathroom in the room (kingbed room) are very very small. I understand the Hotel can't change that but just an fyi. Over all I was very pleased with the service and the Spa Team and Front Deck Team where great.

The Don CeSar is the perfect spot to land when you want a beach weekend where you don't need a car. Everything you need is on property and well worth the stay.

We used the paddle boards at Don Cesar and they were great fun but slightly pricey in comparison to other places, Kurt gave us a really good demonstration of how to use them and Mitchell was very patient when we spent 15mins at the end taking a million pictures!! Thanks

The Loews Don Cesar Hotel is an upscale hotel so it will be overpriced but you will be well taken care of. You have direct access to the beach. With the pool, pool bar and food you may never make it out to the beach. The hotel property is immaculate.
