This was my second 3 night stay at Don Cesar. I was pleased to see that the self parking now formed part of the $22 resort fee as last time this was extra and $22 is alot considering hardly any of the facilities are used.
Lovely hotel in great location
The nicest sun loungers and pool service anywhere
Great ice cream in Uncle Andy's parlour
Very good fitness centre with free fruit and lovely cold water on ice.
Noisy although very effective a/c in bedroom. We had partial gulf coast room (436) with two double beds
Very small bathroom - could only get one person in at any one time
Internet in business centre is charged for. Free Wireless is all well and good unless you are travelling from europe and have no laptop etc.
Waited 20 minutes to get booked in at reception as not enough staff on
They won't let you use the shower facilities at the fitness centre- you have to go to your room which means walking through parts of the hotel all hot and sweaty - ughh! Apparently the showers are reserved for club members !! Seems a bit daft to me seeing as we are paying guests.
Tip - if you want breakfast go down to the end of pass a grille and go to The Seahorse its lovely although closed on Tuesdays.
If you want a great evening meal then the Salt Rock Grill at Indian Shores is hard to top.
