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.

Words cannot thank the staff enough for all of their professionalism, patience & kindness during this very difficult time in America. Everyday they were thrown a new curve ball as new info & regulations regarding the pandemic were released. Thank you all for making our time there as easy as it could be given the circumstances. A special shout out to Fabian, the attendant on the beach, this guy IS A ROCK STAR!! He is truly amazing & busts his tail on so many levels to ensure guests are taken care of above & beyond!! He is “that” employee that turns your day at the beach into an experience. We would return just to see him!!! The property itself on the outside doesn’t look like much & can use some love but the inside is a very well prepared mini oasis. If you can afford to pop for the Grand Suite and go oceanfront it is well worth it. The sunsets are absolutely perfect!! The only comment I have is they need to invest in 2 more chairs for the balcony. Overall 2 thumbs up and we WILL return!! Read less

When our trip out of country was cancelled due to Corona virus, we decided to stay locally at the beach for a few days. It was our first time staying here. The suites are located on a great spot facing the Gulf. The pool and jacuzzi were nice and the private beach was perfect. Fabian, the Manager of the beach umbrella setups was *fantastic*!! He hustles, is courteous and attentive, extremely personable and goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your time. He made the entire trip! The room itself was decent but not what was expected of the Don as far as cleanliness. There was a little water on the floor after a shower that I mopped up and the white towel turned black when I did so and all of that mirrors and sliding doors had a film on them. It just felt a little older and less spotless. The staff at the suites were very friendly, though. Sonja checked us in and she was very personable, even warning us about sting ray season. Overall it was a decent place to stay especially given the circumstances. Read less

My wife and I just returned from a ten day stay at the beach House Suites by the Don Cesar. This was a return trip for us as we were there last year about the same time. New Manager, McKay Wright is seemingly there all the time and does a wonderful job of relating to people and is all about making your stay a good one. Our suite this time was top floor facing the beach and ocean for great views from our balcony. Fabian does his fabulous job with umbrellas and beach chairs that coming daily with your stay. Sonia and the other front office folks are extremely nice as well as the 3 different poolside bartenders. Merima from house keeping did our room most days and she is the best! A little windy but lots of sun and sand and beautiful sunsets make this a great place to stay. We will be back again for sure!!! Great staff and service and the free shuttle provides transportation two miles both North and South from the hotel! Read less

Fabian was excellent in helping us get beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. He set our Sun Bed up and had great service all day. Rent the Sun Bed-it is fabulous for front row ocean fun. Fabian will take great care of you.
