very nice beachside setting but rooms are small, most with no balcony or beach view. Hotel is overpriced for the value.

Property Description

Imagine a “Four Diamond and More” experience, and you will be thinking of the Don CeSar. Since opening its doors in 1928, the legendary "Pink Palace" has welcomed guests from around the world to enjoy the sprawling sugar-white beach, sumptuous dining, rejuvenating spa, and gracious hospitality. The celebrated architecture and romantic legend have earned the hotel its place on the National Register of Historic Places, making it a true landmark of Florida's Gulf Coast. The Gatsby-era pampering and attentive service continue today, and from the moment they arrive, your guests will feel refreshed and invigorated as they are immersed in the carefree comfort of our seaside retreat.Located just 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport on the island of St. Pete Beach, the resort is surrounded by the shimmering blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Boca Ciega Bay. Accommodations at the Don CeSar include 277 guest rooms at the Main Resort with 40 spectacular suites, and 70 one-bedroom condominium-style suites at our Beach House. All guest rooms are designed to bring the outdoors in, reflecting the natural beauty of the coast with furnishings and amenities that are as inviting as the Gulf breeze. For those who crave adventure -- Take in the view from 800 feet with a liberating parasail ride…Compete for the catch of the day on a deep-sea fishing excursion…Cut through the water on a wave runner or a paddleboat…Go for the greens at the exclusive golf club less than one mile from the resort…If you prefer a more leisurely pace, stroll along seven miles of sandy white shoreline…Shop 'til you drop in our seven retail locations throughout the resort…Restore your sense of balance with yoga on the beach…Experience true bliss with a beachfront massage…Or simply lounge in a chair by one of our pools and bask in the Florida sun…The Don CeSar Beach Resort announces the addition of Spa Oceana, now in progress. With 11,000 square feet and 16 treatment rooms, Spa Oceana will feature a rooftop garden overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and treatments infused with ingredients from the sand and sea. Throughout the development of the new spa, our current spa in the main resort remains open with a full range of treatments to refresh, revitalize, and rejuvenate.
