I was so pleased with the level of customer service! They really have done that part correctly. Staff was so friendly and helpful.

Construction/renovation was going on at the time and that made for some awkward elevator issues, but other than that, altogether, perfect!

After checking in at 11:00 a.m. we headed to the Spa for the $30 day pass. That was not available on Sundays (web site does not say no day pass on Sunday). We bought the mini mani (cheaper anyway because day pass price had changed to $36.00). The rooftop did not have a restuarant just room service. The pool area had no available chairs, all beach people were welcome to come into the pool and beach restuarant ( not enough servers). Not sure what the resort fee is for because you would have to pay for beach chairs too. No balcony is disapointing. property was clean

Thanks so much for the opportunity to host your stay with us at the Don CeSar. Our team is discouraged to hear of your concerns and will be reviewing your comments in detail to see where improvements can be made. Our Spa Oceana rooftop does offer a selection of limited items, however we hope you may have been able to take advantage of the many great restaurants around the beachfront area. Our pool is currently for registered guests only, however our beach area can be utilized by day visitors as well. he weekends tend to be a very busy time around the property in the summer months, as well as throughout the year.

We hope you might consider us for a future visit, and allow us to exceed your expectations. Please inform our team of your previous experience and hopefully we can work together to find the perfect fit. We do have many room types available, some of which have a balcony option. Thanks again for your business, and we hope to have you back.

We live in Florida and love the beach. We’ve been on stay-cations to a lot of the beach resorts along the gulf coast. So for my wife’s birthday I made reservations at the DonCesar. She really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautiful. The restaurants within the hotel had execellent food with a good variety but a bit pricey. The room was a lot smaller than we expected (Luxury King Room) but was very clean. The mini bar in the room was locked which we found unusual. Overall we had a great time.

the hotel was amazing. the staff awesome the beaches was the best I have been to in Florida. Me and my wife went and was able to relax and completely power down and enjoy ourselves. the hotel is packed with history. if you have kids there is stuff for them to do and the adults can still enjoy themselves. keep one thing in mind it is a luxury hotel and it has luxury prices on everything.

Room Tip: the 3rd floor has great views and is quite as with the entire hotel

The hotel looks big but really is not. All of the staff were great. Big thanks to Matthew at the Pool Bar. He made us feel very welcome with restaurant tips from the first day until departure. And makes a great Dark & Stormy!

Room Tip: Had a gulf view if I leaned far enough but having it was not that necessary
