The Don CeSar features both unique and extensive services relative to other St. Pete Beach accommodations. Catch some rays on your own private daybed, enjoy a poolside cocktail delivered by our concierge or rent a WaveRunner and skim over the salt-water surf. Love working out? We have amazing Fitness & Wellness Facilities that are always open. Be bold: try water yoga or a Zumba Class (both are included in the resort fee). Need to soothe tired muscles or indulge in some pampering? Our full-service 11,000 square foot Spa Oceana is the answer.


Poolside Pampering

Our Poolside Concierge provides pampering treats and services throughout the afternoon. Expect chilled hand towels, Evian and suntan lotion misting, fruit smoothies and delightful treats such as frozen strawberry kabobs. In addition, our staff is willing to assist in making plans for you and your family so that you are able to experience the best of St. Pete Beach. From art shows, to concerts, to golf and everything in between.

Poolside Activities

We specialize in fun in our outdoor pool area. Younger guests can challenge each other during Kidz Kraze for a chance to score awesome prizes! (Don’t worry, there are contests for the big kids, too). Or splash around during one of our dive-in movies at night.


St. Pete Beach has been voted one of the best beaches in the world, and has so many activities that you may never leave the island.
