Beach House Suites by The Don CeSar

St Pete Beach, Clearwater and St Pete

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.

After our weeklong stay at a beautiful condo, we booked this hotel for our last night before flying home. Pictures online looked great and the staff/service was very good allowing us to check in earlier which made our day. Once we checked in to the room, we agreed that it would not be what we would want for anything more than one night. The bedroom is located along the exterior walkway so all noise of people walking to their rooms or in the parking lot below echoed into the room. The view was beautiful, but the walls seemed paper-thin because we could hear the conversation of the couple next door over the sound of the tv in our room which was very annoying, not peaceful at all. We were disappointed to the point that we cut our losses of paying for the room (including a room upgrade) and my husband booked another hotel and we left after only being in the room a few hours.

I love this place! I stay here about once a month for extended weekends. The views of the Gulf of Mexico are amazing and the service is top notch. Aimee Wright is the assistant manager and she always makes sure every request is met with a smile. Her and her staff work to make your stay a great experience. I love it here.

We have been coming to the Don CeSar Beach Suites for over two decades now. Given the perks of working from home during this pandemic, we made a few extra visits to the Beach Suites this fall, and actually are booked for another trip in April. We keep coming back to this spot because the set up is just perfect. The suites are updated and spacious, and the large balcony facing the Gulf of Mexico is a major perk. Room amenities are just right for an extended stay, and the beds are super comfortable and that goes for the pull out sofa as well. It is just like our own little condo on awesome St.Pete Beach, but with so much more. The staff is very accommodating, which is particularly important during these challenging times. McKay, Amy and Charlie see to it that we are well taken care of, and have provided great support while transitioning to work from the suites. Management does an amazing job to ensure our stay with them is a great one, and their level of customer service trickles down to the entire team of the Beach House Suites. A major bonus staying at the suites is that they have a complementary van that can take you anywhere you want to go within a couple mile radius. That is wonderful because it helps to eliminate the need of a car. Ray, Patrick and Hamza are timely, safe, entertaining and informative. You will be well taken care of on the beach by Fabian and others, and service at the poolside bar will not disappoint, We love the fact that we have the best of both worlds, our own suite on the beach with a pool, hot tub, bar, outdoor lounge area and beach service - plus access to all that the luxurious, historical Don CeSar Hotel has to offer. This iconic upscale hotel is just a 15 minute walk down the beach, or you even can take the complementary shuttle to the Big Don. So staying at the Beach Suites gives you a comfortable space to live with a mini kitchen, large dining table, washer/dryer, Gulf views from balcony... none of which the DonCeSar Hotel can provide you with. However you can enjoy all of it's elegance as reflected in the decor and furnishings spread throughout the lobby bar, restaurants, poolside bar, spa, shops, workout facilities, yoga and fitness classes. Like I said, staying at the Beach Suites gives you the best of both worlds. Hope I have provided some good insight on this property. Maybe our paths will cross on one of our many future stays!!!

This year was our 22nd year to stay at the The Beach House Suites. When we arrived were greeted at the front desk by Aimee and were advised that our room would be ready in 1 hour. We returned in 1 hour and were swiftly given our keys. Upon arrival to our suite we found everything in our room to be perfect. Mirama always makes certain that all of our special requests are in our room upon arrival. The suite is very accommodating for four family members. The king bed in the bedroom and the queen sofa are both very comfortable. We appreciate the Frette duvet and shams. Bathrooms are great. One is located off the King Bedroom, the other is located in the entry hall. All towels are brand new. There are two televisions, one in living room and one in the bedroom. The entire living room wall opens to a balcony that over looks the gulf. There is an eating area in front of a kitchenette that accommodates four people comfortably. Kitchen is stocked with the basic utensils, pans, dishes, etc. Cooktop and refrigerator are perfect size. Kuerig coffee maker is stocked with coffee, tea, cream and disposable cups. Bottle water is provided. The staff is very aware of the inconveniences caused to guests by COVID 19. Everyone was very eager to assist with garbage pick-up and linen changes. During the pandemic a modified schedule is in place for cleaning the rooms. On one occasion Charlie from the front desk called to see if we needed anything. The staff is very accommodating in facilitating room cleanings. The bar and pool area are phenomenal! Fabricio and Marissa are both excellent bartenders and provide superb service from 11 AM to sundown. The drinks are great! Food service is available through room service. The food is quite good! Pool and surroundings are very peaceful. Towels are always available. Patrick and Raymond are always ready to shuttle guests back and forth to the main Don Cesar resort. Both are great and very eager to assist in anyway possible. The Spa is great at the main resort. We always ask for Toni and Chris M. when making massage appointments. Randolph at the Spa is always helpful in making our appointments. We love using the restaurants and lobby bar at the main resort. On one evening, Marissa at the lobby bar provided great bar and food service. The Lobby Bar is a great escape. The Beach House Suites is a great place and is very well managed - thanks McKay and Cee Cee. We make this our home away from home - this year on three occasions. We always feel welcome! Read less
