Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service
Property was ok and clean, but they did not have sufficient staff to meet the need of the property. Food was mediocre. It also took hours to get food some times of the day due to staffing issues and the staff was immediately defensive about why things would take so long. I don’t think I’d recommend this property and I don’t think the cost of the hotel was justified given my experience.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
It’s a beautiful, historic property. The staff is very nice and helpful. BUT..... My room was never cleaned. I had to ask for clean towels and put my dirty towels in the maids hamper. Water or coffee were not provided, the typical things you get at any cheap hotel. The beach was crowded with chairs arranged close by, so if, you don’t get a front line chair very early in the morning, you won’t see the ocean, only body parts and chairs. There was not even an attempt at social distancing. The pools were filled with people. The only COVID protocol followed was the mask on the staff. I didn’t see anybody cleaning tables, seats or public places, such as elevators.

4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We really liked its private beach and chairs and umbrellas that were included. The only caveat for me was that there were no restaurants (besides the hotels) or quick marts within walking distance. Once we figured out the taxi and free ride (good luck getting one) system in St Pete. We found some really good restaurants. Also try and arrange for a local town car company to pick you up at airport. A taxi will cost you @$100 and UBER even more. Call the DonCesar before you go. They can give you a contact. Overall. I would go back.

The pool and beach access were incredible. It’s also nice that beach chairs and umbrellas are included in the hotel room rate and not an extra daily fee.
