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.

Fabian works on the beach for umbrellas and sun beds! He works hard to make sure you’re happy and keeps checking on you! Exceptional service! Some items are included with room- 3 chairs and umbrella. Beautiful white sand beach with shells. Not much waves but sand bars you can swim out to. Thank you Fabian!!

Booked the Grand Suite room 4502. Pros: Staff were all very nice and super friendly both at Beach Suites and Don Cesar. View from 4502 is exactly as advertised and has unobstructed panorama of the Gulf. Laundry with detergent is nice touch. Well stocked lobby amenity/snack/liquor area.

Booked the Grand Suite room 4502. Pros: Staff were all very nice and super friendly both at Beach Suites and Don Cesar. View from 4502 is exactly as advertised and has unobstructed panorama of the Gulf. Laundry with detergent is nice touch. Well stocked lobby amenity/snack/liquor area. Shuttle was prompt and drivers were great. Cons: Although official check in was 3pm we couldn't get in earlier than exactly 3pm (we were offered a ground level room but declined). We were offered a late checkout 1pm vs 11am however this wasn't relayed to the next day's front desk and they (very politely) asked if we had left at 1pm. Weren't made aware of the $24 daily parking fee. (We were comp'd on check out after raising a few other issues (to follow). As an airline employee, I have been wiping down my room's high-touch surfaces since Covid began. The places I wiped (switches, doors, handles, buttons, etc,) resulted in an obvious lack of deep cleaning. Keurig wasn't cleaned and there was significant dust on the harder to reach areas. The Sand Dollar Bar, which is the only food and beverage option at Beach Suites was closed. Food had to be delivered from the Don Cesar by the shuttle drivers. The Don Cesar pool area is under significant construction and the beach isn't visible from the South Pool. Lots of construction noise throughout the day. Top complaint: During the 24 hours we stayed, a mulch company was spraying the grounds with a VERY loud truck (think a fire truck but mulch instead of water). Assisting the truck was a team of leaf blowers directing the sprayed mulch. The noise stopped at 7pm and resumed at 10am. Needless to say, it was not a restful, relaxing stay and upon getting to the car we found it covered in mulch dust. I understand this is periodic maintenance and not an everyday thing but it really degraded the quality of what was supposed to be a relaxing overnight vacation. We were comp'd the resort fee of $36 in addition to the parking fee of $24. Again, I can't say enough about the politeness and professionalism of the staff...absolutely 10/10. Read less

Our room was clean and enough room to hangout and eat in which was especially appreciated during Covid. Staff all wore masks, elevators were quick and not crowded. Fabian, the beach chair attendant, was excellent! Very considerate, hardworking and great at remembering names.

We had a wonderful time at the beach, coming from Tampa, it’s a nice “staycation” and really feels like a great getaway! Fabian was very accommodating at the beach, setting the chairs and umbrella up perfectly. We enjoyed our stay immensely!

Our trip to the Beach House Suites was so amazing. They took special care of kids especially. The complimentary beach umbrella service was perfect! Fabian took great care of us on the Private beach. Everything was super clean. Service unparalleled! Will absolutely return.
