“"Welcome home" to a restful vacation spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

As DVC members we have been to Disney Vero Beach over a dozen times and we have yet to have what would qualify as a negative experience. The staff are highly trained and treat you well. The property is well maintained. The staff respond to feedback as evidenced by a change in towel policy to avoid guests "saving" lounges around the large pool. There is a workout center accessible with your room key. Restaurants on property are good in addition to the many local restaurants that can be found on Trip Advisor. If you want a restful vacation, have been to the Disney parks, it doesn't matter if you are a couple or a family, Disney Vero Beach is a place to go.

Room Tip: If you stay in the main lodge, request an oceanview on an upper floor and let the sound of the surf...

Disney's Vero Beach Resort was a nice surprise. After reading several reviews, I was a bit skeptical but we found the resort to be well appointed with great service. This is certainly Disney at the Beach - at it's finest. The resort was immaculately clean and the attention to detail was prevalent in every nook and cranny, as is expected with Disney. Our studio room - 1541 - had a tremendous view of the ocean and was comfortable. The TV is very small, but works fine, and the decor was appropriate to the resort. The bathroom could use some updating but everything looked and worked fine.

The buildings and grounds are in such great shape and well designed. The hotel staff was very accommodating and polished. The resort's attention to conservation is everywhere. The turtles of the area are endangered and Disney makes every attempt to protect them with the special outdoor lighting, use of paper drinking straws, protected beach area and emphasis on recycling.

We plan on coming back.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view - the rooms on the 3rd floor have the potential for best views. There are...

I made mine thru Hotels.com, I called them to change the dates of our trip, due to medical issues. They told me I had to cal the Resort to do that. I called Vero Beach and they said I'd have to go thru Disney's Central Reservation Service and gave me the #. There I was told I was not in their computer system since I went thru a third party, Hotels.com. Hotels.com said NO that's not policy. And the out come is that I lost 1nights payment + tax+fees. Over $200. Not happy with either Disney's nor Hotel.com response. So be careful!

Let me begin with the good. We arrived for a 2 night stay during the week of Thanksgiving, so the hotel lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas! Our room had awesome views of the ocean and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Sonya's. Although our room had great views, it was in need of serious updating. I was surprised to see the "motelish" bedspreads in a 4 star trip advisor hotel! Bathrooms and furnishings were definitely old and tired looking. Service was spotty, which is surprising for the Disney brand. Poolside lunch was disgusting ... Even our kids turned up their noses at their hotdogs. Silly rules apply at this resort: no drinks by the pool and no drinking straws served in drinks by the pool. ?!? Internet service was out for 2+ hours. Pam, at the front desk, was very receptive to our concerns and asked that we share them with Kathy, housekeeping management. They happily credited us for our second night, so we couldn't have been more pleased. Resort itself is off the beaten path...Nowhere close by to grab a coffee or something.
Unfortunately, we won't be returning to this resort. If your family is looking for the Disney experience, head to Disney.

Best room in the inn I would say! Beautiful ocean view on 4th floor, waking up to sounds of the ocean. My family and I truly enjoyed it. Everyone was very friendly and all our needs were met. Unfortunately due to an unexpected tropical storm, we spent half our trip indoors but the staff made sure there were things to do, especially for the kids. The rest of our stay we enjoyed the great Mickey pool and water slide. We spent lots of time on the beach, which is so close by! We loved making s'mores by the campfire and sing along with the silly songs. My 7 yr old even made some new friends! Convenient underground parking and fun character meals. My 2yr old mainly liked the elevator buttons!! ;) Would love to go back with friends and stay in the Cottage's!

Room Tip: Ocean view for sure! Poolside does look like fun too....

This resort is better for your family with teenagers and above and "like the beach"! Its not the normal hype of Disney. Located on the beaches of the more exclusive areas of Vero Beach it has a light aire and one of relaxation. There are activities for the kids and a large pool, golf course and there is a character breakfast on Saturday and you may even get to participate in a character dinner.

The price is all Disney but here I have found that the staff attempt to make it a magical moment for you which at times is hard to find at the main property.

If your looking for a relaxing Disney vacation and one on the beach without having to take the cruise then you have found the place!

Side note - in the way of quick cheaper food outside of Disney property there are some local establishments across the street but the nearest Burger King is across the bridge approximately four miles from the Vero Beach property. Low traffic so its a quick trip. Like this place as I get to see my twin brother "Goofy" when I go there. He is almost there and the Christmas pictures you can get with my brother are awesome!!!

Room Tip: Get beach front...more money but the sun rises into your window. People actually stand on the beach...

We spent the weekend in two adjoining Inn rooms booked with DVC points. Rooms were clean and well maintained. We had a partial ocean view from the 4th floor, north side, even though we booked garden view rooms. Parking in the basement garage is convenient and keeps the car cool. They have luggage carts in the garage for the DIY crowd or they will send someone to help if you want. This is not your typical fast paced Disney Resort. Everything is more relaxed here. Everyone seemed to sleep in on Saturday. Pool activity did not start till mid morning and everything seemed to close down fairly early in the evening (too early in my opinion). Beach is very nice. Jet skis are incredibly over priced, I think they were $75 for a half hour. Went to the campfire and had smores. The sing along was entertaining and funny. We look forward to coming back.
