“Kimpton has outdone themselves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

My wife and I are big fans of the Kimpton chain, as any reader of my reviews can plainly see. Except for the Kimptons in L.A....

But the Vero Beach Hotel has taken things to a whole new level of excellence. Our suite was like something out of a dream. From both rooms we looked out over generous balconies and thru a frame of a few perfectly placed palms to a stunning view of the white sand and blue waters of the Atlantic, only a few steps away from the hotel. Perfection.

The staff was to a person pleasant, courteous, and helpful. Five stars Kimpton.

Room Tip: Spring the money for oceanfront! In many hotels that really doesn't mean a whole lot - here it d...

Have used the spa here many times but finally had an opportunity to stay overnight. My stay was great, made more memorable by a great room location. One of the amenities we enjoy here is the fire pit overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately we were told the northern most pit was not working - strange since this was New Year's Day and high season for this property. Instead we ended up very happily making use if the outdoor hot spa and the feeling of privacy to soak and look up at the stars in the dark. My only criticism of the property is that the pool is way too small for the number of guests. And the number of children here cuts into the romance factor. Maybe a midweek stay or a stay when school is in session would allow for a more romantic atmosphere. Beach is great for walking, free bikes and the general vicinity are really enjoyable. My spa experiences here have varied from sublime to terrible ( a male masseuse I had could not have been more disinterested in his job). Anyway I look forward to a return to escape crowded and bustling south florida.

Thanks you very much for staying with us, we appreciate your feedback very detailed, overall we are so pleased you had a great stay with us and for sure i have let the Spa know of your experiences. Thanks for noticing one of our Fire pits was out of order for 24 hrs , needed some emergency attention, we appreciate your understanding for this. Come try us in September / October when Romance thrives here in Vero!

Only stayed one night but staff could not be more friendly or welcoming! Arrived late, ate in the restaurant which was surprisingly really fab, room great and views of the ocean just what you need to unwind! All in all a great stay.

No question, "Vero Beach Hotel and Spa" is the best place to stay in Vero Beach. Yep, right on the beach. If you don't like the beach they have a wonderful pool and or rent a kayak and paddle the waves in front of the hotel. Umbrellas, cabanas, soak in the hot tub, just steps from the pool. Poolside or casual dining, in the open–air setting of the Reef Bar & Grill.

Cobalt Restaurant, Lounge and outside dining by the surf is the BEST! We live in Vero Beach. We come here often for breakfast Sunday mornings.

This is where we have our special guests stay. Oh yes, they have a wonderful Spa, and Fitness Center. It's OK to bring Fido too. This is not a bargain hotel (especially in high season, January to May) however you won't find anyplace near Vero for the price that is as good.

This was our first time at a Kimpton hotel and we thoroughy enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and accomodating and the property was beautiful. The evening wine hour was a great opportunity to meet other guests. Our studio room was large and comfortable as was the bathroom. We are definitely looking forward to our next stay at a Kimpton.

My sister-in-law lives 5 hours away and needs to bring her dog with her when she visits. For her birthday my Mother-in-law and wife thought it would be nice to meet her half way. The Vero Beach Hotel & Spa was the perfect choice; 2.5 hour drive for each of us, pet friendly, and the classiest hotel in Vero Beach.

Upon check in there was a happy birthday sign, bottle of champagne, and cards from the hotel staff. But the big plus was a special bag of goodies for the dog and his name welcoming him in the hotel lobby.

The rooms, Cobalt restaurant, and service were exceptional. My wife and I really enjoy Kimpton Hotels and glad the Vero Beach Hotel & Spa is a short drive.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. The north building had a great view of the ocean.

My wife and I love Kimpton hotels and we were not disappointed here. It is a lovely hotel located on the beach. The pool, hot tub, pool bar and restaurant were all very nice. Our room was very large and well-appointed. The bathroom was gorgeous. We had two balconies. We dined at Cobalt and thought it was excellent and then enjoyed a live band in the adjacent bar. We enjoyed the wine hour and met severla interersting guests. We could not have asked for more (except more sun).
