“Quaint retro beach hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Love South Beach Place! It is a small hotel, only 18 rooms, with many amenities. A heated pool, shuffle board, bikes, the beach is an easy and safe walk, full kitchen in each room, a covered area near the pool for grilling, a library with books and magazines!!!! It is simply wonderful. We have stayed at several other beachfront hotels in Vero ( Costa de Este, Holiday Inn, Vero Resort) but we keep coming back to SBP. Oh and there are several restaurants within walking distance ranging from high end to casual. Andres is kind and makes sure your stay is perfect. We will be back!

Room Tip: Take a look at the rooms online. Each one is different, but all are retro FLA. my kids loved the pi...

I enjoyed South Beach Place so much, I went ahead and made a reservation for March. Clean and comfortable rooms, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook. Pool area is inviting and relaxing. The beach is only across the street (quiet dead end street) with a beautiful park.
Caroline and Andes (sorry if I spelled you name wrong) were accommodating, patient and helpful through my entire stay.
Thank you for a wonderful getaway.

I have been trying to stay here for years but it is usually full, especially in season. They had room in Nov and we had a wonderful stay. The rooms are well decorated, sparse, clean and airy and have enough materials to make your stay pleasant. We used the outdoor cooking area for hot dogs one night, great! The pool area is just the right size and there is beach access and park across the street for your touch of the ocean. Overall, South Beach is a terrific place to stay. There's a pizza place 2 blocks away and we played in the large front yard until they delivered. We had a terrific visit and we look forward to staying at South Beach again. Staff was pleasant and attentive when needed. BJ and Bill

Room Tip: Each room has a different decor which makes it fun for repeat visits. The room was very clean and w...

this is our second trip/review and once again we were very happy. New owners are making some positive improvements on what already is a great little place to escape. The rooms remain clean and comfortable and the pool area is still perfect for a relaxing day with enough sun and shade to make for a fun and relaxing week.

Room Tip: we like the second floor...nice overlooking the pool area and less foot traffic.

This is a great place to stay and unwind in Vero Beach. It is out of the way of busy Route 60 and very, very close to the public South Beach. We stayed here on a regular basis between 2009 and 2010 and cannot say enough about the consistent quality. Each time we stayed, the room and bathrooms were immaculately clean. The water hot with good water pressure. The kitchen and living areas well appointed in a quirky retro-style that works. The grounds are quiet. I believe because the owners live right there and are constantly about (this is not a "spring break party" type place). The pool was beautiful winter and summer. If you can, stay here. There are other very highly rated(and expensive) resorts and condos in Vero, but you won't find any place better for a couple or family on a budget!

Our daugther, son-in-law, and two grandkids ages 3 and 5 stayed here for the week. They loved it and we enjoyed spending time there. Pool area nice with great outdoor prep are and BBQ. Could not have been easier for us. Beach just across the street. Rooms were very clean and charming in decor. Hotel staff were attentive and could not do enough!

Room Tip: small two story l-shaped hotel- hard to go wrong with choice!

I had to be in Vero for two days in late June, and chose this over anything glitzier ... because I just wanted to let my hair down and relax. South Beach Place is perfect for that. I loved the charming "consignment chic" decor ... which completed the 50s feel. Great management: I was actually "welcomed" to my room and given a number if I needed anything else. I did. Wi-fi was asking for a code no one had ... but the trusty hard-wire internet worked fine. Beach is a short walk away, across Ocean Drive, on walkways through the seagrape. Monday and Tuesday I had the beach virtually to myself. Quiet part of Vero, short drive away from restaurants. In all, this is the sort of place where you are forgiving about some details, because the rest is so "regenerating!" Will definitely come back once a month ...
