Beach House Suites by The Don CeSar

St Pete Beach, Clearwater and St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

The cool little sister to the famous The Don CeSar Hotel, Beach House Suites gives you access to all the luxuries of the main hotel, with the sumptuousness of a more secluded all-suite beach retreat. Taking its inspiration from the sands, this seaside sanctuary offers beach life in abundance, with a shorefront pool, ‘sun and surf’ activities and beach games. Its poolside tiki bar provides sunbathing snacks, but you also get full access to the dining and drinking venues at The Don CeSar Hotel, including its ice cream shop; The Rowe Bar, with coastal cuisine and cocktails served on a deck over sand dunes; and Maritana Grille, voted one of USA Today’s 10 best restaurants.

So glad I found this gem. From the front desk to the beach the staff made me feel so welcomed. Porcha was personable and attentive providing exceptional service at the bar and Fabian made sure my beach time was a success. I'll be back for sure!

He gives us many towels and checks in on us when we are laying out. You can tell that he loves his job. He wants everyone to have the most relaxing time. It's funny everytime I just come here, he remembers us. Think about all the people he meets and he remembers us from a few months ago. He's very nice and personable. We can't wait to come back! Thanks so much Fabian for the excellent services! Read less

I have stayed here many times, but this time was very disappointing. My room had cockroaches and ants! I would not expect this even at a “Motel 6”, let alone a Don Cesar resort property.

I have stayed here many times, but this time was very disappointing. My room had cockroaches and ants! I would not expect this even at a “Motel 6”, let alone a Don Cesar resort property. I did not complete my stay due to this. The manager was understanding concerning my early departure and made an adjustment to my bill, though I felt I should have had the entire stay refunded. Also, the internet was spotty and kept going in and out! Beach House Suites has always been one of my favorite places, but I will now have second thoughts about ever returning or recommending it to others. Read less
