Stunning hotel and service
The Don exceeded our expectations. Everything was absolutely perfect. Every person we encountered from the staff was friendly, professional and welcoming. We genuinely felt like every person cared about our experience. Food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The history of the Don is displayed throughout and definitely worth learning. It truly feels like stepping into another era. The private beach is stunning. Clean white sand, and service out there is fabulous. We hated to leave!

A bit too pricey
The hotel is beautiful & clean .. the rooms are nothing spectacular , but comfortable & the bathroom is pretty, but really small. the beach chair area was pretty crowded unless you rented the bed for the day which is 200$.. overall, we do love the hotel, but I think it’s a bit overpriced for just a room with no balcony even or view .

Don Cesar
The hotel itself is in need of some serious renovations you can tell this was once a beautiful resort but it has not been well maintained. Our sheets had blood on them not a lot but still was nasty. There were drunk adults arguing out in the hall ways and slamming doors til 3 am . Which we reported to the management only to be told someone would get back with us which never happened even after going down to the front desk . Also watch your bill for over charges

I have been coming to the Don for over 30 years and have always enjoyed my time at the property however this stay was very different .. the property was dirty and not being kept up.. we sat on the decking between the pool and the beach and all we could see in the sand were plastic cups and cigarette in the sand , there were dirty plates and towels left around the pool from the day prior, meanwhile there were 4 male employees sitting on the lounge rental counter joking and smoking pot rather than attending to guest while having dinner at Rue there was a complete lack of service and many light bulbs burnt out … could be my last trip there
