Owned by pop star Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio, Costa d’Este Beach Resort is "a window into 1950s Florida," says Travel + Leisure, with sophisticated architecture and graphic prints.
The property is located in the heart of Vero Beach’s Ocean Drive area, but has a laid-back atmosphere. Guests are greeted with a complimentary mojito on arrival.
The hotel provides direct access to the beach, but it’s hard to look further than the sleek infinity-edge pool, surrounded by chaise lounge chairs, a poolside bar and serviced by a specialist team of "Splash Stylists" (on hand from 10am-6pm to polish sunglasses, dispense sun lotion and dish out frozen grapes and chilled facecloths).
There’s also a full-service spa providing treatments that can be taken in-room or on the beach. The Wave restaurant is popular with both locals and guests for its home-style Cuban dishes from the Estefans' own cookbook, with live music on weekends.
Signature porthole windows make for glamorous cabin-like bedrooms. All are spacious and some have balconies with sea views. The frosted-glass bathrooms all have spacious oval showers, and suites also come with deep-soaking tubs. The pool deck is popular on the weekends, so upgrade to an oceanfront room for a quieter stay.
There’s a $19 per night resort fee, which provides Wi-Fi, valet parking, gym access and pool service (including towels, sun lotion and those frozen grapes).
